Ever look around, see a woman with a youthful, glowing complexion and think, “How does she do it?” Some women are simply endowed with great skin. But, not everything is up to genetics.
If you poll women with great skin, you will find that they all share these habits in common:
Sleep is one of the most important things you can do for your skin (and your overall health). The hours you sleep are the hours your body is actively renewing itself, and that includes cell turnover and skin repair. Without that restorative time, your skin is more likely to look dull, dry, wrinkled and/or inflamed—not to mention dark circles under your eyes.
Experts tend to agree that everyone needs at least seven hours of restful sleep each night; some people need more.
Protection from the sun’s harmful rays is vital to achieving and maintaining great skin.
The best sun protection is a daily sunscreen (minimum SPF 30) reapplied as needed throughout the day. And this all-over protection can be layered—an SPF 25 noncomodogenic sunblock or sunscreen beneath SPF 15 mineral makeup, for instance.
Protection should also include sun-smart clothing and exposure—i.e., wearing hats, long sleeves and pants and staying out of the sun during peak hours (10:00 am to 3:00 pm).
The condition of your skin reflects the state of your overall health. When your body is healthy, your skin is healthy. Your overall health largely depends on your nutrition, so the importance of your diet cannot be understated.
A good diet includes lots of leafy and cruciferous greens (think kale and broccoli) and an array of colorful fruits and vegetables. A good diet also includes lots of water—about 64 oz per day.
A diet rich in antioxidants and essential vitamins, minerals and fats hydrates, reduces inflammation and provides the nutrients required for natural cellular repair. On the skin’s surface, this translates to:
Healthy skin is clean but not overly dry. Women with great skin have achieved the balance by removing the daily buildup of makeup, oil, dirt and other environmental contaminants but not stripping their skin of natural oil protection.
Women with great skin have a daily skincare routine that includes the essentials—cleansing and moisturizing. They also know what additional spot or intensive treatments will help them prevent or reverse signs of aging as well as what brands they can trust.
