In our previous post, we discussed five easy things you can do to improve the look and feel of your skin. Keeping good habits like not sleeping in your makeup and visiting a facial spa like The Facial Bar regularly can go a long way toward giving you the healthy, beautiful skin you’ve always wanted.
But there are so many more good habits that you can incorporate into your daily skin regimen! In today’s post, we’re going to give you five more tips for beautiful skin. Check them out and then visit our website to learn about all of the facial treatments we have to offer.
Use Sunscreen Every Day
Sun exposure is another critical factor that has a big impact on skin. While the sun provides good things like much-needed Vitamin D, it’s easy to get too much sun, especially if you don’t make a habit of wearing sunscreen. The sun’s rays feel great on your skin, especially on a cold day, but too much exposure can lead to sunspots, wrinkles, and even skin cancer.
Some people don’t like the texture of sunscreen on their face, especially when worn under makeup. To address this issue, many products now include sunscreen in their makeup like our Gloskin Beauty line that we carry at The Facial Bar.
The next time you are putting on makeup or shopping for some at the store, check out the label. Chances are, it already contains some amount of sunscreen. Just remember that sunscreen’s benefits can diminish over time — so whether your makeup products have some age on them or your makeup has been on your face all day long, it probably isn’t as effective as it was when you first purchased them or when you first put in on your face in the morning.
Load Up On Your Fruits and Veggies
Everyone has heard the phrase “you are what you eat”, and this is something you should take to heart when it comes to the health of your skin. Instead of only nourishing your skin from the outside, you should also be feeding it from the inside. Eating a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables is a great way to provide your skin with the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that it needs.
You hear about the benefits of regular exercise every day. It’s great for cardiovascular health, losing weight, reducing stress, sleeping better, and improving energy. But did you know that it can have a big effect on your skin as well?
Regular workouts increase blood flow, which in turn increases the amount of oxygen and nutrients to the skin. Getting in a good sweat session is also great for detoxing your body and clearing clogged pores that can lead to breakouts. And, there are so many other benefits.
Have you ever noticed how your skin looked after a particularly stressful time in your life? Anxiety, worry, and lack of sleep can have a big impact on your skin, causing it to look dull and haggard. Making exercise a priority is an easy way to help combat these issues. We aren’t saying that all of your problems will go away, but exercise is definitely a great way to help your body deal with them.
Get Your Zzzzzs
Nothing seems to age you more than not getting enough sleep. Just one night of tossing and turning can lead to a disappointing face staring back at you in the mirror the next morning. Sleep allows your skin to have time to rest and repair itself. Without it, or without enough of it, you’ll notice the telltale signs — puffy, baggy eyes, under-eye circles, maybe a few extra wrinkles, and dull skin. Give your skin the rest it needs by turning off your phone or television and make sleep a priority.
Enjoy Facial Spa Treatments
It’s important to give your skin a little extra attention from time to time. Regular skin care treatments can give it an added boost and allow you to give special attention to any problem areas. At The Facial Bar, we specialize in spa-quality facial treatments using only premium products from companies like PCA skin and Farmhouse Fresh.
