Sometimes the winter weather leaves our skin feeling damaged. Here we have some easy tips and tricks to help retain moisture and improve the appearance of your skin before spring is at our doorstep.
Eat More Veggies
Forget to top up your acids because you lead a busy life? There’s a reason the doctors say to eat your 5-a-day. Simply pick up some nutrient-rich vegetables such as broccoli (offers a great amount of Vitamin D), carrots, peppers, sweet potato and spinach to prevent cellular damage (as well as hydrating skin benefits).
It isn’t recommended to replace food with supplements, but taking them synonymously is a great idea. Including Vitamin C and B Vitamins helps to speed up the regeneration of damaged and speed up renewal time. Another key ingredient to enhance that skin glow look is including collagen supplements in your routine. Collagen plays a vital role in strengthening the skin along with its elasticity and hydration, leaving your skin looking and feeling radiant.
Wear Your Sunscreen
You’ve probably heard it a million times, but whatever the weather or time of year, always remember your SPF! It truly is an exceptional way of improving the health and radiance of your skin. According to dermatologist Doris Day, 95% of wrinkles we find on our complexion are from sun exposure. Thus, topping up on SPF is vital, and be sure not to slack during wintertime as UV rays still linger even when the sun isn’t visible (this is also the case when sitting next to windows as UV rays can penetrate glass).
Use Hyaluronic Acids
Thirsty skin? Hyaluronic acid is an exceptional acid to use to improve hydration. This heavy-hitting acid has the ability to hold its own weight and is present in our SKINGLO collagen supplements.
Hydrate with H2O
Our skin requires as much hydration as possible for glow, radiance and flexibility. Even with the slightest dehydration, your skin can look grey, tired and quite dry. What’s better than drinking a good few glasses of water a day to increase your rate of hydration? The added benefit to this is that the minerals found within the water will boost hydration to your hair and overall body, too. You could also try herbal and caffeine-free teas if water isn’t a preference.
Lots of love, from SKINGLO
