There are many factors that come into play when attempting to get flawless skin.  Taking steps to take care of yourself both inside and out will help you achieve more beautiful skin.  There are some simple things you can do to promote younger, healthier, and more vibrant skin.

Drink plenty of water.   Water is crucial for proper cell function as well as keeping them plump and healthy.  Your skin cells are primarily made up of water and therefore need plenty of it to stay hydrated.  Drinking lots of water throughout the day will also help flush toxins and impurities out of your body, keeping your cells strong and healthy.  

Eat foods that are rich in antioxidants.   By consuming ample amounts of fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and beans you load you body with powerful antioxidants which protect your cells from the damage that free radicals can inflict.  Free radicals damage your cells causing lines, wrinkles, rough and unhealthy looking skin.  You can give your cells the protection they need by eating lots of antioxidant rich foods.

Exfoliation helps reveal beautifully smooth skin.   Your skin is regularly losing dead skin cells that can get stuck with sebum, dirt, and debris causing rough and dull skin.  Regular and consistent exfoliation will buff away the dead skin cells, stimulate cell renewal, and encourage cell turnover.

Rejuvenate your skin with red light therapy. You can now easily rejuvenate your skin at home with a red light therapy system, such as the Quasar MD, Baby Quasar, Kathy Ireland Light Therapy, or the DPL Therapy System. ([Link Removed]  about these systems.) Your skin will greatly benefit from the immense improvements it provides.  Red light therapy has been shown to drastically improve your skin making it glow with youth and vitality, reduce wrinkles, fade age spots, and so much more.

Use a sunscreen everyday.   Sun exposure wreaks havoc on your skin, damaging cells and causing premature aging, including wrinkles, sun spots, and rough skin.  Protect it daily from the harmful rays of the sun.

Get plenty of rest.   Sleep deprivation causes your body to produce cortisol.  Cortisol damages your collagen resulting in lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness.  While you sleep your body goes into a reparative mode.  It repairs, regenerates, and renews your cells while your body is at rest.  Research has also shown that your cell turnover rate increases by 8 times while you are sleeping, giving you plenty of incentive to get your beauty rest.

By making a few simple changes to the way you take care of yourself your skin will look more vibrant and youthful.  Whatever is going on inside your body will reflect on the outside, so treat yourself with kindness.  Your skin is the largest organ in your body and needs to be fed with healthy products both inside and out.

Your skin is a precious commodity and should be treated as such. Taking great care of your health, ramping up your skin care routine with anti-aging tools and topical skin care can really make a huge difference in your complexion. It doesn’t take much time or effort but it does take consistency. To learn more about anti-aging products and tools please visit [Link Removed] heart

    • I find that the worst enemy we have is the sugar.

      Minimizing sugar to only fruits make a tremendous difference to the skin.

      Having said that, I would kill for a piece of chocolate or a glass of wine now, but it was so hard getting off sugar that it’s not worth going back there tongue out

    • Yana, as hard as it is, you are so right! Sugar is detrimental to both our skin and our health but it is incredibly hard to eliminate.
      By simply reducing the amount you consume over time your cravings will become less and less :)
