4 healthy skin habits you should swear by

You know we’re all about investing in skincare products that are packed with nutrients and healing properties. However, products aren’t the only thing you need to maintain skin health - there are a few habits you’ll have to adopt, too. Here are 4.

Hydrate

We can’t stress the importance of this habit enough. As much as your other organs need water to function, your skin can’t repair itself if it’s dehydrated. Drinking water and eating fruit and veggies that help you stay hydrated, are essential in avoiding over-drying and dehydrated skin.

Supplement

We don’t always get the nutrient quantities we need to maintain good skin and overall health in food, which is why it’s a good idea to invest in some healthy supplements. These include things like vitamin C, collagen, and zinc.

Eat well

To add to the previous point, supplements work a lot better when you’re eating right. So, it’s imperative that your diet is rich in healthy foods such as leafy greens, nuts and fruit. This doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself to some chocolate once in a while, just remember - everything in moderation.

Deal with stress

Prolonged periods of stress can take a huge toll on your body and your skin. While it’s difficult to avoid stress altogether, there are ways to deal with it healthily. These include exercise, journaling and a healthy roster of hobbies to help you destress.

Skin health relies largely on overall health, which is why it’s important to make sure you’re well hydrated, rested and stress-free.
