If your skin is looking dull, dry, or less than its best in any way, it’s time to make a few changes to your skincare routine. Once the signs of aging begin to accelerate, it’s time to reassess your skincare products or upgrade your skincare treatments. Here are 5 powerful ways to rejuvenate your skin.
We’ve all heard the dreaded words, “you look tired”. Or you’ve looked in the mirror and thought this to yourself. The place you’re “seeing” when you notice that you look tired is your face. This is likely to be any combination of dark circles, red eyes, puffy eyes, and skin that looks dull. Even if you experience some of these symptoms on a regular basis, they are heightened when you don’t get enough sleep.
Sleep is when your body heals and repairs. So, if you don’t get enough, you will look and feel tired. Most adults require 7 to 9 hours of quality sleep per night. More if you’re sick, stressed, your sleep is interrupted, or if you naturally require more sleep.
Exfoliating might sound like an extra step in your already busy morning or evening skincare routine, but it’s an essential step. If you don’t slough away the dead skin on your face 1 to 3 times a week, your skin will begin to look dull. Long-term, your skin will age faster. The makeup, oil, sweat, skincare products, and daily toxins your face is exposed to buildup. This buildup won’t slough away without an exfoliating product.
#3 Nourish, Moisturize, And Protect
Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and it requires daily nutrients, moisture, and protection. Some of your biggest areas of opportunity for rapid rejuvenation include:
- Hydrate your skin internally by drinking about half of your body weight in hydrating fluids per day.
- Eat a diet high in antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, lean meat, and other whole foods.
- Keep processed sugar and alcohol to a minimum and don’t smoke.
- Be mindful of sun exposure and wear broad-spectrum UV protection each day.
- Apply an antioxidant-rich skincare serum and moisturizer every morning and evening.
- Evaluate and upgrade your skincare products at least every 10 years as your individual needs change.
Speaking of individual needs, always personalize your skincare routine and skincare products. It’s easy to be drawn in by the most recent skincare trends, but it’s of greater importance to understand what your skin needs.
Your skin’s needs change in different weather, as you age, and as you manage whole-body health conditions. If you aren’t sure what you need, schedule an appointment with a trusted dermatologist or esthetician.
