Top 5 habits of people with great skin

Posted by ECOSKIN on

We have always been admirers of radiant, clear and healthy skin. But as we all know, it doesn't come easily! 

To achieve your dream skin, all you need to do is develop and incorporate some healthy habits into your daily routines. 

So, what are the top 5 secrets to getting that amazing glow?

1. Hydrate, hydrate, HYDRATE!

Hydration inside AND out is absolutely crucial to great skin. 

Drinking plenty of water (at least 2 litres a day!) helps flush out toxins from the body and significantly increases the hydration levels in the skin from the inside out. It also helps the skin stay elastic and supple to eliminate the appearance of any fine lines. 

From the outside, it's equally important to make sure your skin's surface is well hydrated to not only protect it from environmental stress, but also to plump the skin and reduce signs of ageing and restore radiance. Always ensure your skin stays moisturised as part of your daily routine (check out our fantastic moisturisers) and treat yourself to an extra hydration boost when your skin needs it the most (check out our powerful hydrating elixirs and serums).

2. Cleanse before bed

As you go about your day, free radicals form on your skin and makeup, and collect dust and dirt. Without removing these nasties from your skin, they stay on your face for hours while you sleep, clogging your pores and leading to breakouts and acne.

This is why daily cleansing and removing free radicals and dirt from your skin, especially before bed, is key to maintaining a clear and healthy complexion!

We know how exhausting it can feel to cleanse and remove makeup after an extremely long day or big night out - but always remember - it would do your skin greater harm if you don't!

Check out our Botanical Cleanser (sensitive skin), Native Cleanser (dry skin) and Tropical Cleanser (acne-prone skin) to cater to your skin type!

3. Get lots of beauty sleep

When it comes to maintaining an effective beauty routine, many people often forget to include sleep. Sleep is an essential process the body requires to repair itself - and that includes your skin! During sleep, your skin's blood flow increases to give you a fresh glow, and the body rebuilds its collagen and repairs damage from UV exposure to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and age spots.

4. SPF - all the time

We all know how damaging UV radiation is for our skin and we cannot stress enough how important it is to protect your skin from the sun! Not only do these harmful UV rays damage skin tissue which causes stretching and sagging, it also causes deep wrinkles, sun spots, freckles and can lead skin cancer.

Always apply generous amounts of high SPF sunscreen to your face and body before going outside (even on a cloudy day!). The effects of sun damage may take years to appear so don't put it off before it's too late!

5. Clean and balanced diet

The phrase 'you are what you eat' has never been more accurate! Eating the correct food as part of a healthy and balanced diet provides your body with the right nutrients it needs to grow, repair and heal - and our skin is no exception! Incorporate plenty of vitamins and anti-oxidants into your diet and reduce the intake of high-sugar and sodium foods to achieve that radiant glow!
