4 Ways To Instantly Transform Your Skin

Transform your skin at home

If you’ve noticed your skin needs a little pick-me-up and a visit to the skin spa isn’t in the budget, I’ve got some great news for you! Great skin care doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

What your facialist doesn’t want you to know, is there are 5 ways to instantly (or pretty close to it) transform your skin at home without leaving you broke.  

Stay Hydrated

Probably the most important thing you can do for your skin is to keep it hydrated by drinking plenty of water. This is especially true as we get older, because our skin gradually loses it’s ability to hold moisture. Because our bodies are made mostly of water, it’s critical to replace it.

So how do you know how much water to drink? Some count 8-10 glasses, but I personally carry a 16 oz. bottle of water with me everywhere I go and keep it filled so I can drink throughout the day. The key to avoid dehydration is to drink before you “feel” thirsty.

Avoid The Sun

Our skin takes a real beating when we’re in the sun. Too much of it not only damages our skin, it makes it look dry and tired, leaving us looking old. Think you’re OK because you never burn?

Not so fast. Tanned skin is sun damage in disguise. The bronze skin you’re enjoying today will eventually show up as sun spots tomorrow, so don’t forget to grab your hat before heading to the beach.

Get Your  C

Adding a serum with Vitamin C to your skincare routine is another beautiful way to care for your skin. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights the signs of aging by completely neutralizing free radicals. When looking for a serum, choose one with Vitamin C Ester, for tighter, brighter, younger looking skin.

Get Your Z’s

You may have heard the lack of sleep affects brain function, but it’s also been proven to be the culprit of poor overall skin health. When we don’t get the sleep our bodies crave, our skin creates the stress hormone Cortisol, and more Cortisol leads to body stress, inflammation and eventually skin conditions like Atopic Dermatitis and Eczema. Yikes!

With so many things in life out of our control, isn’t it great to know we have a say in the care and health of our skin? What do you do for your skin at home? Share it with me below!
