That Inner Glow

8 TIPS To Keeping your skin looking Fabulous all year long!

1. Hydrate

Water will always be the go to source for nourishing healthy skin.

Stay hydrated gradually, throughout the day. Drink fluids, or eat water-rich foods.  A healthy person needs 30 to 50 ounces of fluid per day. Drinking fluids is crucial to staying healthy and maintaining the function of every system in your body, including your heart, brain, and muscles.

2. Exfoliate

Exfoliate with a dry brush one or twice a week to help to remove dead skin naturally. Dry brushing is where exfoliation meets alternative medicine, and even a bit of meditation.  Work in light, circular motions, beginning at your feet and moving upward.   Look for a brush with soft, short bristles, so it’s not irritating.

3. Protection

Protect your skin always with a mild sunscreen. Winter rays can sometimes be as damaging as summer.

4. Detox

Both your skin and body need replenishing. Mask is great for the skin to tone and tighten.  All skin is different: When adding your face mask into your weekly skin regimen, it’s okay to use it once or twice a week.  If your skin if is on the oily side in the summer, or very dry in the winter, it’s a good idea to use a mask more frequently.

5. Eating Habits

Eliminating one calorie craving food a week from your diet and gauging the affects can help maintain healthy lifestyle longer.

6. Sleep

 Sleep is your best friend next to water, for beautiful healthy, stress free skin.   Your body boosts blood flow to the skin while you snooze, which means you wake to a healthy glow.  Chronic sleep loss can lead to lackluster skin, fine lines, and dark circles under the eyes. When you don’t get enough sleepyour body releases more of the stress hormone cortisol. In excess amounts, cortisol can break down skin collagen, the protein that keeps skin smooth and elastic.

7. Antioxidants & Fatty Acids

Food rich in antioxidants and fatty acids help feed your skin the nutriments it needs. Your skin is your largest organ, so it is important to take care of it.

8. Use Only What You Need

Less is more when choosing a skin care regime to work with your daily schedule.  To hydrate, brighten, and illuminate skin with just a spritz or two hydrating face sprays like our Trio – Anu Essential Spritzers  help to refresh and restore the skin.
