The Key to Healthy Looking Skin
I'm not much of a healthy eater, i don't make sure i have my 5 a day and i definitely don't drink 8 glasses of water a day. I wish I could be more healthier but i'd rather have a glass of Coca Cola and a biscuit to be honest!
I also don't get 8 hours of sleep each night, by the time i get to bed i'll have about 6 and a half hours of sleep, but that won't be un-disturbed sleep! The little man usually wakes up for a drink at least once a night.
I'm sure i'm not the first mum to admit that i'm rubbish at keeping myself fit and healthy, and i'm sure i wont be the last!
I really don't like the thought of getting wrinkles and looking old so i do use moisturizer daily, and i do take my make up off each night. However, if i want young looking skin this just isn't enough. I DO need to get more sleep and i DO need to drink more water.
After doing some research online ive discovered that it isn't impossible and doesn't have to cost a fortune to take care of your skin and hopefully have younger looking skin. Here's what i've come up with.
Boost your Vitamin C intake
To keep our skin looking younger, we need our bodies to produce more Collagen. Vitamin C is crucial to the formation of collagen. Eat plenty of leafy veg, Broccoli, Sprouts and Tomatoes, Oranges and kiwi fruits are all high in Vitamin C
Many people suffer from acne even after their teens, it can really effect a persons self esteem and make you feel unattractive. A healthy diet is important but there are also over the counter products you can purchase that can work wonders for your skin.
Think twice about Smoking
If you're a smoker i'm sure you're already aware of the effect smoking can have on your appearance. This is because smoking damages the Collagen in your skin, leaving it saggy and tired looking.
Wear Sun Protection
sunburn is bad news for your skin, it doesn't turn nice and golden and it's better to always wear sun cream to avoid damaging the goodness in your skin. SPF15 Cream is probably the most suitable.
Having a face massage can boost the collagen in your skin and keep it looking plumper and helps stimulate the lymph glands to promote clear skin. You can do this yourself, no need to go booking an over priced massage!
Last but probably the most important..... the bit that i'm failing on!!!
Eat 5 fruit and veg a day, Drink plenty of Water and get 8 hours sleep!!
