Well skin like that does not happen by accident, if you ever wondered what these people with glowing skin have in common, look no further! We are here to reveal five habits of people with great skin. It might take some efforts, but it is definitely worth it.
1. Hydration is keyIf you ask anyone with flawless skin what their beauty secret is, most of them will brag about ow much water they drink everyday. They tend to drink at least 2 litres a day as water is so effective at flushing out toxins from your body and brings out the natural glow of your skin. Drinking enough water also helps keep your skin supple and eliminates fine lines. So make sure you drink enough water on a daily basis.
Hydrating your skin with a good moisturiser is a must wether you live in a dry or humid climate and wether you have dry or oily skin, moisturising is crucial for healthy skin. A lightweight oil with a low comedogenic love such as Prickly Pear Seed Oil is ideal for all types of skin.
2. They protect their skin from the sun
We know, you’ve heard this countless times but we really can not stress this enough! Sun damage from sun rays is one of the main causes of premature ageing which causes hyper pigmentation, uneven skin tone and fine lines. Prevention is always better than cure which is why those with great, even skin tones apps SPF daily. Make sure to select a sunscreen with a high SPF protection level and apply it generously every 2 to 3 hours.
3. They cleanse, Mask & ExfoliateLadies - having a proper skincare routine is a must! Be sure to cleanse your skin every day with a gentle cleanser, make sure not to over cleanse if you have dry or sensitive skin. People with great skin always mention a little self care with a face mask at least twice a week and a thorough skin exfoliation every week. If your skin is oily or acne prone, a Ghassoul Clay Mask will help draw out impurities and excess sebum, if your skin is more dry or normal, the Rose Red Clay Mask will work wonders at pulling out toxins from the skin without overly drying it.
Exfoliation is a step in the skincare routine that many tend to skip, but people with flawless skin never do. Adding a gentle exfoliator to your routine is essential to getting rid of all the dead cells and it also makes it easier for your other skincare products to absorb and work their magic. The Prickly Pear Facial Scrub is gentle enough for all skin types and its properties help reduce appearance of pores, rid the skin of dead skin cells and helps tighten the skin. If you don’t exfoliate your skin at least once a week, make sure to rectify that habit.
4. They eat healthyWe’ve all heard the sentence ‘ you are what you eat’, well it could not be more true when it comes to your skin. Antioxidant-rich foods are great for protecting the skin against free radicals and we can guarantee that you’ll see people with great skin reaching out for berries, oranges and tomatoes as opposed to fried chicken or French fries! It would be helpful to try to limit both salt and sugar intake, too much salt makes the skin dry, patchy and irritated and too much sugar causes acne. Most importantly, try to stay away from packaged cookies and chips as much as you can, we know it must be hard in these times, but we believe in you!
5. They exercise often
Have you every noticed how your skin just glows naturally after a gym session? Well it’s not just an impression, sweating helps pores purge and get rid of toxins and bacteria in the skin. Also, exercise increases blood circulation which also gives skin cells a boost of oxygen and we all know how good that is!
