Healthy, radiant, and youthful skin is something we all lust after and many women (and men) spend thousands of dollars on various skincare products to help turn back the clock and keep them looking ageless.
The unfortunate fact, however, is that if you’re spending your dollars on conventional products, then you aren’t likely to get the results you’re expecting due to chemical additives.
But healthy skin comes down to so much more than just the products you apply topically to your skin and in this article, we’ll share a few natural methods you can follow to not only enjoy healthier skin, but live a healthier, more active lifestyle too!
Hydrate From The Inside Out
You’ve heard it over and over, but drinking enough water really is such a simple way to enjoy plump, hydrated skin.
Applying hydration externally isn’t going to plump those skin cells from the inside out, so it’s essential that you aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to help keep your skin hydrated and happy.
Hydration truly is the key to youthful skin and a lack of hydration can result in sagging, dull and flaky skin.
If you find plain water a little boring then try sprucing it up by adding some fresh mint, cucumber slices and some freshly squeezed lemon juice for a refreshing drink that has an antioxidant boost your skin will love!
Keep these healthy digestion tips in mind, especially when it comes to your drink of choice while eating.
Infuse Your Skin Cells With Antioxidants
Every single thing you eat will have either a positive or negative impact on your skin so it’s important to be sure you’re making the right choices.
Foods high in sugar can actually draw water out of the skin cells and even break down collagen so sugar is one thing you want to avoid as much as possible.
Of course all processed and inflammatory foods will speed up the signs of aging so avoid these foods and instead fill your diet with fresh, whole foods that will fight inflammation, infuse your skin cells with anti-aging antioxidants, and leave your skin smooth, bright and dewy.
Increase Blood Circulation
Not only will a good sweat sesh boost your endorphins and lift your spirits, it’s an excellent way to improve your skin and fight the signs of aging too!
When you boost your blood circulation, your body’s better able to promote the formation of collagen, a structural protein that is essential for plump, taut skin. Sweating is also a great way to flush toxins from the skin that may have manifested as breakouts, and a good way to enjoy an instant, rosy flush!
Aim for 30 minutes of medium impact activity at least three to four times a week.
Take a Collagen Supplement
When we are young, our skin is abundant in collagen (just look at a child’s skin to see what we mean!) but our natural levels start to rapidly decline year after year, from our mid twenties onwards.
Taking a collagen supplement is an excellent way to ensure your levels stay high and your skin stays youthful and plump!
Try our Collagen Skin Revive, featuring Verisol Bioactive Collagen Peptides, a unique combination of specialized peptides to stimulate your body’s own collagen production, at the cellular level. This excellent formula is proven to give you smoother, firmer skin with reduced wrinkles in just 28 days!
Try supplementing Silicon
If you’re vegan and can’t take a regular collagen supplement, then try our Silicon! This essential mineral that holds your body together acts like a ‘glue’ for helping proteins form bonds. This ultimately helps our cells stick together, so that our skin remains firm. Silicon is the key mineral-factor for maintaining healthy collagen production.
We hope these tips have made you aware of the link between a healthy lifestyle and healthy skin. By aiming to live a more active, healthier life and making sure you take your collagen supplements every day, you will enjoy more youthful, radiant skin before you know it!
