- Hydration for Younger Looking Skin
You’ve probably heard it before, but it cannot be said enough: Your body (and skin) requires water to live. After all, your body is made up of up to 70% of water (depending on gender and health). So, if you are already consuming (or not) those a good amount of water per day and your skin still feels “blah,” it could be that you need to put water on your skin, rather than in your body.
Despite the fact that our skin is the largest organ in the body, it is usually the last organ to receive consumed water. So, if you want to get a little extra help in adding water on your skin, try hydrosols! We take a closer look at this topic in our article Why Are Hydrosols the New Toners? And we have some recommendations on hydrosols in our webstore. Without water, skin is prone to being dry, and dry skin equals wrinkles, a telling sign of aging skin.
- Aromatherapy Face Oils for Youthful Skin
Once your skin is hydrated, you want to make sure that that moisture is locked in. The easiest way to do this is through the application of a face oil. Even better, an aromatherapy face oil. The base of an aromatherapy face oil is a carrier oil, such as rosehip oil, to which you can also add essential oils.
Aromatherapy face oils help to keep your skin feeling supple, softer, and looking more youthful. If your skin is glowing with these benefits, wrinkles will take a back seat!
- Face Massage for Healthy Skin
In a nutshell, face massage:
- promotes healthy skin
- relaxes face muscles
- promotes good lymphatic movement which in turn
- decreases puffiness, increases cell rejuvenation, and increases collagen production
- improves elastin (skin elasticity)
- stimulates better blood flow
- promotes glowing skin and
- there it is again – reduces wrinkles!
Facials are an excellent way to receive face massage – and just look at all those benefits which can promote youthful skin!
- Exfoliation for Glowing Skin
As we know, the skin is the largest organ in the body, but it doesn’t always get the attention that it deserves. Case in point, exfoliation. Exfoliation is one of the most overlooked skincare routines, not always in whether you do it or not, but how you do it. Our blog How to Exfoliate Your Skin Naturally, deep dives into this topic more but I’m going to summarize the main tips here for you:
- skin exfoliation removes the dead skin cells from the surface of your skin.
- Skin exfoliation helps to make your skincare products work better!
- Exfoliation promotes younger looking, healthier skin – naturally.
- You’ve probably got a lot of natural exfoliation products at home already such as sugar, fruit, and oatmeal.
- Don’t over exfoliate your skin – once or twice a week is enough.
- Beauty Sleep for Anti-Aging
There is a reason that it’s called “beauty sleep!” A good night’s rest can lessen the effects of tired, puffy eyes, and those black circles under your eyes. Skin needs to “sleep” to ensure that it’s looking its best the next day. How much is enough sleep? It varies from person to person but at the minimum you should be getting 7 hours sleep per night. The Sleep Foundation recommends between 7 and 9 hours per night for healthy adults.1 Factors such as age, productivity level, health, and diet will impact your own needs, but your skin will have a better chance of radiating younger looking vibes if you treat it to a good night’s sleep.
