Here are the 10 most important points about preventing premature ageing and keeping healthy!
1.- Massage your face, but don’t drag your skin down or pull too hard. Look at my “Small Face Workout” which is that kind of massage they do in Japan against aging.
2.- Drink lots and lots of water, at least 8 cups a day!
3.- Sweat, exercise! The best exercise in this case would be cardio; it raises your heart rate which increases your blood flow and transports oxygen to your skin ALSO the sweat is gonna clean your pores (and overall, it helps you to stay fit! ^^).
4.- Eat healthy, keep in mind the “ACE” vitamins;
Vitamin A (Antioxidants, super important! Growth and renewal of skin cells) =>Egg yolks, dairy, dark leafy greens, carrots, liver, etc!
Vitamin C (For collagen; Structure, tone and elasticity of your skin) => Citrus fruits, broccoli, berries, tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, etc.
Vitamin E (it’s to keep the “skin tissue” healthy) => Leafy greens, nuts, whole grains, peppers, sunflower seeds, avocado, peanut butter (yum, haha!)
※ Eat sweets, crisps and fast food in moderation, they’re not good for your skin!
※ If you fail to take enough vitamins daily, consider taking vitamin pills, though taking the vitamins through food is better, so just eat enough and healthy! ^^
※ Just because you ate healthy for one day, your skin will not have drastic and visible changes. Your body needs 2 to 3 months to adjust to the new healthy food and your skin cells to regenerate!
5.- Avoid sun to skin exposure, if, then use a sunscreen with a SPF of at least 15 and 30 in the summer.
6.- DON’T SMOKE
7.- Relax! Stress isn’t good for your skin. Whatever helps you with handling stress, like, drawing, bubble bathing, listening to music…do it!
8.- SLEEP! While sleeping your body cells are reparing and regenerating. Sleep at least 8 hours ❤ If you have trouble sleeping, build a blanket fort, it helped me, now I sleep like a baby! : D
9.- Use moisturiser! One in the morning, and moisturiser for over night. You can find day and night moisturisers at drug stores.
10.- NEVER ever go to sleep with make up on! Always use make up remover. After waking up, make sure to wash your face with cold water.
It doesn’t only refresh your skin but also wake up your head! : D
