We all want beautiful skin. There’s just nothing quite like going out with a youthful, healthy glow. While we typically recommend a long term skin care treatment plan, we understand that monthly treatments and a medical grade at-home skin care regimen can get expensive.
But good news!
You don’t have to break the bank to achieve that healthy glow! Below are our favorite skin care hacks from LifeScape Aesthetician, Noelle, that we know your reflection will thank you for.
Exfoliation: An At-Home Treatment
The main reason you should get a monthly skin care treatment is because of the exfoliation process. In safely removing the top layer of dead skin cells, you are helping your skin to better absorb the products you use. But you can do a gentle exfoliation at home for a great, just stay away from harsh scrubs. We highly recommend using Revision Finishing Touch once a week.
Get Your Share of Antioxidants
We hear all the time that we should be eating foods with antioxidants, but what do they really do for us? Antioxidants protect your skin by fighting against free radicals in the environment. You can get your fill of antioxidants by eating berries, plums, or oranges. You could also try using topical serums with antioxidants in them – our favorite is Epionce Intense Defense Serum.
ALWAYS Wear Sunscreen
By now we hope you are well aware of the fact that you need to be wearing sunscreen every single day. Even on cloudy days! Because a sunburn doesn’t look good on anyone. No matter if you burn quickly, or if you can achieve a beautiful bronze, the sun is dangerous. One of the best skin care hacks out there is to wear sunscreen every day. Aim to use 30 SPF Broad Spectrum or higher.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
This is one of the more common skin care hacks, because it’s so easy to do. You hopefully drink water regularly anyway – but you aren’t just keeping your body hydrated, you’re keeping your skin hydrated too. Moisturize your skin from the inside out by drinking plenty of water.
Don’t Give In to Your Sweet Tooth
We know it’s not fair, but sugar can be your skin’s enemy. When we consume sugar, our insulin levels increase, causing inflammation throughout the body. This inflammations causes enzymes to break down collagen and elastin – two proteins that keep our skin looking healthy. When they’re broken down, it causes our skin to sag and create wrinkles. So it’s important to curb your sugar intake.
Achieving a beautiful, healthy glow at home is simple with these skin care hacks. But if you want to amp up your skin care regimen, you’ll need a professional skin care treatment plan.
