With the hustle and bustle of our busy daily lives, self-care often takes a backseat. While most people understand the importance of taking the time to do the things that help us live well and improve our physical and mental well-being, they struggle to fit it into their busy schedules. Moreover, proper skincare is often overlooked, since most of us don’t have the time to properly care for our skin, let alone pamper it.
The good news is, there are some simple and effective skincare steps you can incorporate into your busy schedule to keep it healthy, clean, and glowing. After all, simply adding a few modest tweaks to your daily care routine can make a significant difference to your skin health.
In this article, we will discuss some of the best ways to care for your skin to boost your physical and emotional well-being. You can begin with these four easy-to-follow tips for healthier and visibly clearer skin.
1. Stay Hydrated
Hydration is essential for maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin. Therefore, it is important to drink enough water, as well as eat more fruits and vegetables high in water content. These include watermelon, cucumbers, tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, strawberries, and celery. If you tend to forget to drink water during the day, it can be a good idea to keep a water bottle with you, as well as on your desk, or to set an alarm on your phone to remind you to hydrate.
2. Use Sunscreen Daily
It’s no secret that protecting your skin from the harmful effects of the sun can help prevent wrinkles, pigmentation, and skin cancer. According to the Australian Standard, it is best to apply sunscreen with an SPF rating of up to 50+. What’s more, sunscreen provides excellent skin protection, as long as it is applied correctly. If you plan to be out in the sun for prolonged periods of time, dermatologists recommend applying the sunscreen liberally and reply every two hours for optimal protection.
3. Stick to the Basics of Skincare
When establishing your skincare routine, it is best to start by getting your skincare basics right—
that is cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturising your skin according to your skin type, in addition to applying sunscreen every day. You can also add additional skin care products such as serums and oils to enhance your skin health, but generally speaking, if you take care of the daily basics, it will keep your skin clean and radiant.
In addition, exfoliation has many benefits when it comes to skincare. If you have not yet tried exfoliating and incorporating this step it into your regular shower routine, we recommend starting as soon as possible. This is because exfoliation helps remove dirt and dead cells from your skin and also helps to reduce the size of enlarged pores. Finally, exfoliation also helps in preventing bumps and freckle formation on the skin.
4. Invest in Permanent Hair Removal
If you are looking to permanently remove your unwanted or excessive facial hair growth, electrolysis is the only hair removal method providing life-long results. What’s more, galvanic electrolysis is the only FDA-approved permanent hair removal method, and can even improve your skin’s texture and tone. This method involves inserting a hair-thin probe into each individual hair follicle and passing a tiny electrical current through it. In turn, the resulting chemical reaction eliminates the stem cells responsible for hair regrowth. When used for facial hair removal treatment, galvanic electrolysis can also help to improve your skin’s appearance by reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Finally, electrolysis helps to improve your skin’s texture by eliminating hair growth and leaving your skin smoother and softer.
Furthermore, galvanic electrolysis can reduce the appearance of age spots. Although the results might not be immediate, over time, after multiple sessions, the appearance of age spots will be reduced, and the skin will become more evenly toned.
Skincare should be a very important part of our daily grooming and self-care regimen. Ensuring enough sleep, proper hydration, practicing the basics of skincare, and permanently removing unwanted facial hair can help to keep your skin smooth and glowing. On the other hand, stress can adversely affect our skin health. Finding the time to fit skincare into your schedule will do wonders for your skin’s appearance and health over the long term.
