Simple Everyday Secrets that will Keep Your Skin Healthy and Radiant

Taking care of your skin is important and easier than you may think. If the most expensive skincare products haven’t worked for you, you may want to try and go back to simpler options. There are many great skincare products on the market and a lot of them work well.

However, before you start making drastic changes and spending a whole lot of money, have a look at these simple tips to keep your skin looking beautiful.

Get Enough Sleep

Getting enough sleep is not only necessary for optimal brain function and rest. It is also a key ingredient in taking care of your skin. When you get enough sleep, your skin relaxes and rejuvenates.

The general guideline for enough sleep is around eight hours every night. For some people, a little less or a little more is best. Try it for yourself and find your ideal sleeping pattern.

Drink Water

Drinking water is another healthy habit that many people ignore to their detriment. Drinking water is necessary to keep your whole body functioning properly. Most of your body is made up of water, so drinking enough water should make sense.

If you stay hydrated, your skin will also be hydrated, healthy, and radiant. It has been said that you should drink at least four to eight glasses of water or between 1.5 and 2 litres of water every day. If you have an active lifestyle, the number goes up.

Wash Your Face

Every woman’s skin is different, which means no single product or routine will work for everyone. However, we can all wash our faces. It is widely accepted that washing your face twice a day, is ideal, but some women only do so once a day.

It is important to wash your face, whether once or twice a day, to remove excess oil, make-up, and dirt build-up. What doesn’t matter, is the type of soap or product. Some women can wash their face with normal soap and have the same or better results than a woman who uses the best products on the market.

Eat Well

Eating well can also help improve the health and radiance of your skin. Our body absorbs many toxins through our skin, food, and nose every day. We need to reduce the number of toxins that our bodies are exposed to. Eating healthy helps with that.

A good diet includes lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and a balance between proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. There are many voices out there saying what we should and shouldn’t eat. The best approach for getting it right seems to be to listen to your body and stick to natural foods.

Do What Works for You

Maybe the most important secret is to do what works for you. It may take a few tries before you get it right, but it will be worth it. With the number of products and routines available to take care of our skin, it can be very overwhelming.

If you want to find what works for you, try a few different products and routines. Do some research and take what has worked for others and adjust it until it works for you.

Try these tips for a few weeks and watch as your skin becomes healthier. The great thing about these tips is that they are simple and have many other benefits too.

The Canadian Tuxedo

This classic outfit consists of a pair of denim jeans and a denim jacket. That’s right – denim-on-denim and we love it! Add a t-shirt and some fun accessories and you are ready to take on the world.

Flannel Shirts

Lumberjacks are not the only ones who like to wear flannel. We also love flannel in different colours and sizes. Tie it up, roll up the sleeves, add a belt and some boots, or just keep it simple.

Practical Layers

With the unpredictable weather, layers are a must. That doesn’t mean that you cannot style it up and still look good. Plan your layers for whatever may come with a parka, sweater, and flannel shirt combination.
