As the years tick by and your skin ages, less oxygen and nutrients are delivered to your skin keeping it from looking its best. It’s important to promote healthy circulation within your skin so nutrient rich blood can feed your skin what it needs to look more beautiful and to obtain healthy glowing skin.
Exfoliating with a gentle scrub not only improves your cellular turnover rate but it also boosts circulation within your skin. Exfoliating is a vital step in acquiring healthy skin and should be included in your routine 2-3 times a week.
LED light therapy
LED light therapy units such as the DPL Therapy System, the dpl Nuve Beauty System, and the Caribbean Sun Skin Rejuvenation Light significantly increase your circulation bringing more oxygen and nutrients to your skin while also drastically increasing collagen and elastin production.
Microcurrent units such as the Tua Viso use small electrical currents to tone and strengthen facial muscles. During treatments the microcurrents also boost your circulation improving the appearance of your tone and texture.
Peppermint and Ginseng
These two skin care ingredients dilate blood vessels allowing your skin to readily accept more oxygen and nutrients. Products containing peppermint or ginseng wake up your skin making it look more alive and refreshed.
Massaging your moisturizer into your skin using firm circular motions helps to increase blood flow drawing oxygen up to your skin and delivering a healthy glow.
Omega 3 Supplements
Fish oil and flax seed oil are loaded with omega 3s which are known to increase circulation and reduce inflammation. Omega 3s are essential fatty acids that greatly improve the flow of blood by reinforcing the integrity and function of your blood vessels.
Increasing your circulation will drive more oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells helping them function optimally and promoting a glowing complexion. There are a number of things you can do to improve your circulation and feed your skin what it needs to look more beautiful.
