1. Hydrate Yourself
Yes, we know you know. Glamour Magazine has brilliantly pointed out that “most of us know that we should be drinking more water than we currently are. Water moisturizes the skin from within and gives you glowing, clear complexion.”
This very obvious, very easy trick of simply drinking ample water and increasing your skin’s moisture levels can dramatically improve your skin. J. Lo is known for carrying her bedazzled J. Lo cup full of water everywhere to stay hydrated.
2. Take Shorter, Cooler Showers
Who doesn’t love the idea of a long, hot shower after an exhausting day! But experts recommend taking a cool shower in the morning because it not only wakes you up, but also has added health benefits for your skin.
Hot water dissolves natural oils present in your skin. Also, moisturizing right after your shower, while your skin is still damp, helps lock in the moisture and keep your skin hydrated.
3. Exercise Regularly
It is of utmost importance to stay active and exercising regularly. As you sweat while working out, your pores open and excrete your bodily toxins. Research suggests that exercise improves blood flow that can also make your skin look younger and healthier.
Our favorite celebrity, J. Lo loves to sweat it out! Whether it is dancing on stage or working out at the gym, she mentioned in an interview that is her one major secret to healthy skin and a happy life. Working out is an amazing outlet to relieve your stress and relax your mind and body resulting in looking ravishing and refreshed.
4. Get a Good Night's Sleep
Dermatologists and doctors agree on the importance of good sleep for good skin and good health. Lack of sleep is known to cause dark circles and under-eye puffiness, but it also leads to stress and stress-related breakouts and wrinkles.
It is called beauty sleep for a reason! While doctors recommend at least 7 hours of sleep, J. Lo, who is big on her beauty sleep, told InStyle she always makes sure to get at least 8 hours. Being well-rested and well-hydrated is essential for the health of your skin.
Place your TOMO Bottle by your bedside and set an early bedtime.
5. Balance Your Diet
Food plays a major role in how your skin looks and feels.
While we often look for expensive skincare and beauty products with antioxidants and vitamins, we forget that eating food rich in these same antioxidants and vitamins can naturally be absorbed into our bodies and deliver the same benefits to our skin.
Food with skin-boosting Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids such as avocado, walnuts, tuna fish, green tea, and even dark chocolate, moisturize and soften the skin as well as reduce inflammation. Food high in Beta Carotene like carrots, sweet potatoes, and spinach protect the skin from the sun’s damaging effects. Vitamin-C-rich foods like bell peppers and citrus fruits make the skin supple, plump, and strong.
If you’re not healthy on the inside you won’t look good on the outside.
Water helps to flush out any toxins from the body and clear out your inner system. Water is an important part of a balanced diet and staying hydrated is a key step towards achieving bright, glowing skin.
Often those who increase their water intake naturally reduce their total daily calorie intake. It is highly recommended to keep a water bottle “with you as you move” to sip on water and avoid sugary drinks that tend to increase health and skin problems.
