As we age our skin, unfortunately, begins to cooperate less and less. It produces less collagen and elastin, cell turn over slows down, the reparative processes decrease, and circulation doesn’t operate at optimal levels. So, what’s a girl to do?
The reality is that you can easily improve these things and watch your skin glow with vitality, but you will need some patience, diligence, and time. In order for your skin to look pure, youthful, and healthy you will need to make some simple lifestyle changes.
Your skin is truly an amazing organ that needs some tender loving care both inside and out so it can look its absolute best. This doesn’t need to be an overwhelming proposition; a few simple changes or additions is all you need.
What you put in your body really does impact how your skin looks on the outside. But, here’s the catch, eating a beautifully healthy dinner tonight does not mean you will wake up tomorrow with a whole new complexion. However, consistently adding more nutrient dense fruits and vegetables to your diet while minimizing dairy, salt, sugar, and processed foods on a daily basis will help your skin look more vibrant and healthy given time. It has been shown to take approximately 66 days to change or implement a habit. Be patient and give yourself that time to change your diet habits and watch how your skin changes.
Of course it’s best to get all of your nutrients from fresh produce but there are a couple of supplements that will help ensure your body and skin get what they need to function at their best. Probiotics and digestive enzymes are important to helping things run smoothly. It may not sound like a big deal, but if your body is delegating the majority of energy to digestion and cleansing then it won’t be able to put energy into other processes such as building collagen and elastin. It’s a very simple addition that will have a huge impact on the way you feel and look.
Applying safe, effective, and natural skin care products along with a mineral sunscreen helps treat your skin from the outside. Ingredients such as vitamin C, argan oil, rosehip seed oil, sea buckthorn berry, green tea, and peptides have been shown to dramatically nourish the skin encouraging a gorgeous healthy glow. Infusing your skin with vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals topically aids in your quest for more beautiful skin.
Red light therapy is one amazing technology! It offers tremendous benefits for your skin. If there were just one beauty device that I would recommend this would be it. It offers a shocking number of benefits for your complexion with absolutely no down time or pain. Specific LED (light emitting diode) wavelengths easily and painlessly penetrate into the layers of the ski where they stimulate collagen and elastin production, prompt reparative work, increase cellular energy, boosts circulation, and more. This one technology has the ability to diminish lines and wrinkles, fade scarring and age spots, reduce pore size, smooth out texture, even out skin tone, reduce redness, alleviate blemishes, and the list just keeps going.
Don’t expect miracles overnight, real lasting results take time. Consistency plus small steps, plus patience and time equals impressive results, so stick with it and you will be beautifully rewarded.
