While we all don’t want to admit that image is everything, let’s face it, it is the first thing that people see. Our face is the sign that mind and body are working together in harmony and if we get up in the morning and we look good, we’ll feel good. It should be everybody’s goal to achieve vibrant and glowing skin, but this is easier said than done. It’s important to remember that there are things like stress that will eventually manifest itself on your face. So, how can we take good care of our face? It’s time for the face off!

Hydrate Your Face

Hydrating your skin probably with the right diet and adequate water will make your skin glow. Don’t forget that whatever is going on inside of you will show up on your face and skin. Bad diets lacking in fruit and vegetables, combined with stress, will age you considerably. And always remember that your face produces oils naturally from the pores, so it’s important to not get in the way of this natural process, but find the right balance between hydrating and cleaning your skin. There can be a tendency to use a lot of cleaners and products which will remove all the moisture from your face, so try and limit this where you can.

Research the Best Products

It’s important to find the right products for your face, and while it’s quite easy to go online and get lots of information about the latest glycolic acid peels or moisturizers enhanced with vitamin E, you need to make sure that every product is the right one for you. There are some fantastic exfoliants out there, but if you do your research into if the latest trends first, like if hyaluronic acid or aloe will be beneficial for your skin type, you could save yourself a lot of money.

Exercise… Yes, Really!

Not only is exercise great for any health related issues, but it’s great when it comes to looking after your skin. You need to find ways to increase the amount of oxygen in your lungs can hold and increase your blood circulation. So make sure you get on the treadmill and have a good session of cardio there are also specific yoga poses you can try which will increase blood flow to your face!

Avoid Soap

Many soap brands have a lot of harmful pH concentrations in them. While people used soap endlessly many moons ago, now you are better off using a gentle cleanser for the pores of your face as soap will tend to dry your skin out.

Wash Your Hands

You may not even think of this, but your hands come into contact with various germs during the course of your day, so if you are prone to touching your face a lot, all these germs will make their way to the surface of your skin. So either wash your hands more or touch your face less.

In addition to these making sure you have a regular skin care routine with the right cleansers and toners, and exfoliating on a regular basis means you will have a smooth and soft smirk to show the world!

  1. I have drastically reduced my usage of a foaming cleanser and shifted to misceral water – Bioderma is what worked like a charm.

  3. Great advice, Christy, however, I would stress not touching your face. We pick up germs all over our bodies throughout the day. Even with clean hands, we are rubbing dirt and grit AND germs into our pores.
