Glow Up from the Inside Out: Holistic Tips for Radiant Skin

Glow-up

Let’s talk about achieving that coveted glow from within. Sure, slathering on all the latest serums and creams can help, but true skin health starts from the inside out. We're diving into the realm of holistic skincare – because your skin deserves some TLC from every angle! So, grab your green tea, put on your favourite face mask and let’s get glowing!

WHY FROM THE INSIDE OUT?


You see, focusing solely on the skin's surface is like trying to fix a leaky faucet without turning off the water supply. Sure, you might temporarily patch things up, but the problem will keep resurfacing. Similarly, if we neglect what's going on inside our bodies, our skin won't reach its full potential.


That's why a holistic approach to skincare is key. By addressing internal factors like hydration, nutrition, and stress management, we can create a solid foundation for healthy, radiant skin that glows from within.


 

7 TIPS FOR GLOWING SKIN

 

ONE - Hydrate Like You Mean It: Drinking more water is non-negotiable for hydrated, glowing skin. Keep a water bottle with you throughout the day as a reminder to sip regularly. Infuse your water with slices of cucumber, lemon, or mint for a refreshing twist. Set hydration goals and track your intake using apps or simply by marking your bottle.

TWO - Nourish with Nutrient-rich Foods: Load up on antioxidant-rich foods like colourful fruits and veggies. Incorporate them into your meals and snacks for a daily skin-loving boost. Plan your grocery list around whole foods, aiming for a variety of nutrients. Experiment with new recipes to keep things exciting and delicious.


Vegetables


THREE - Get Your Beauty Sleep: Establish a relaxing bedtime routine to signal to your body that it's time to wind down. Limit screen time before bed and create a calming environment in your bedroom. Invest in a comfortable mattress and pillows to ensure quality sleep. Consider using essential oils like lavender to promote relaxation.


BEAUTY SLEEP


FOUR - Manage Stress like a Boss: Find stress-relieving activities that resonate with you, whether going for a walk, watching your favourite movie, journaling, or indulging in a hobby. Schedule regular "me time" to recharge and unwind. Practice deep breathing exercises throughout the day to calm your nervous system.

FIVE - Sweat it Out: Find physical activities that you enjoy, whether it's dancing, hiking, or hitting the gym. Incorporate movement into your daily routine, even just a quick walk during your lunch break. Exercise increases blood flow and oxygen, which pumps nutrients to the skin cells and takes away waste products and free radical, which is incredibly helpful in promoting glowing skin.

 


EXERCISE

SIX - Don’t Skimp on Sun Protection: I’ve addressed how I feel about sunscreen in a previous blog. But to summarise, most sunscreens do more harm than good to your skin. I always like to work on the principle of getting some direct sun exposure in the early morning and late afternoon and then covering up during the peak of UV light. Sun is both good and bad for the skin, so use good judgment when it comes to this, and go for a natural sunscreen when necessary.

SEVEN - Listen to Your Skin: Pay attention to how your skin responds to different products and environmental factors. Consult with a dermatologist if you experience persistent issues or have specific concerns. Trust your intuition and adjust your skincare routine accordingly. It can be a journey of trial and error to find products and a routine that works for your skin. Keep in mind that simple is always good, don’t overdo it on the amount and variety of products you use.
