Taking care of your skin can be difficult, especially when you don’t know what you are doing, and this can get pretty overwhelming. However, having clear skin isn’t just for stars, and it is something that everyone can achieve by following some pretty simple steps. So, without further ado, let’s dive into this blog and learn some simple tips to have clear skin.
1. Adopting the proper diet
Your skin is the image of your diet. The skin’s role is to eliminate the toxins contained in the body. Give it an unbalanced diet, and the result will be assured. Autumn is the ideal season to start a little “detox” and eliminate from our body the bad fats accumulated during the summer.
The consensus is to eat locally grown, seasonal produce when it comes to nutrition. With the modern diet, it is saturated, and this results in skin problems such as eczema or acne, dull skin, and a decrease in the efficiency of the immune system. So it’s a good idea to start with a small detox diet mid-season to optimize your skincare and have clear skin.
This is a good thing since fall provides us with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber essential to our diet. Make the most of seasonal fruits and vegetables, and don’t ignore the crucial fatty acids that you will find in large quantities in nuts (macadamia, pecans, hazelnuts, almonds) or vegetable oils (rapeseed, walnuts, flax). Eat a variety of colorful foods to fill up on vitamins and nutrients.
2. Moisturizing the skin is a key
As you know, you need to drink 1.5 liters of water per day to be in the clear. Good hydration is the basis for tackling the coldest months of the year. This is also the time to switch from lotion to cream. As the air gets drier, your skin needs a thicker moisturizer. These provide a stronger hydrolipid barrier. They reduce water loss from the outer layer of the skin and hydrate the epidermis at the same time.
Remember to protect your lips and start moisturizing now to prevent dry, cracked lips this winter. Use a petroleum-free (mosh) lip balm for best results and health. This will clear up your skin and keep you looking fresh
3. Choose the right sunscreen
The main task of sunscreens is to protect you from harmful UV rays. If a product has a sun protection factor, it will probably only protect you from UVB rays, but that’s not enough! In fact, UVA rays can penetrate even deeper into the skin, damaging it. For this very reason, make sure your favorite product also protects you from UVA rays. To avoid blemishes, make sure your facial sunscreen is non-comedogenic, so it doesn’t clog pores. You can use a day cream with built-in SPF to help your skin breathe better as an alternative to sunscreen.
4. Moisturize your skin morning and night
Moisturizing is essential to have clear skin. It’s the first beauty step, the ABCs of beautiful skin. So before applying makeup, don’t skip this essential step. Morning and night, apply a moisturizer on your clean and dry skin, and don’t forget: we always make the difference between day cream and night cream. And yes, for all those who still doubt it, there is a difference.
The day cream
The day cream is light and contains a sun protection factor. Applied in the morning, it provides and maintains optimal hydration of the epidermis for the entire day. Reinforced, the skin is ready to defend itself against the environmental aggressions of the exposome. They won’t get the better of its hydration!
Moisturizing face formulas adapt to your needs to offer you effective and personalized hydration. When it comes to composition, opt for natural, gentle formulas enriched with moisturizing agents for the face, such as hyaluronic acid or glycerin. Known for their ability to retain water, these humectants promise intense, long-lasting hydration. Finally, always choose a product that matches your skin type. Dry, sensitive, atopic, combination, oily, mature skin.
The night cream
You’re probably wondering what the difference is with the action of the day cream! We don’t think about it enough, yet night care has incredible benefits on skin hydration. With its rich texture and formula concentrated in moisturizing active ingredients, the night cream nourishes the skin in depth.
It’s very simple: at night, the skin lays down its protective shield and initiates its cell renewal process. This intense activity makes the skin barrier much more permeable, which means that the penetration of moisturizers is facilitated. This is the ideal time to apply rich, targeted skincare products! This is what will give you the clear skin of your dreams.
Moisturizing face masks are also a must-have skincare product. Unlike the day cream and night care that we use every day, the moisturizing face mask is applied only once or twice a week, depending on the skin type.
As powerful as it is targeted, it offers the skin a dose of intense hydration and, like night care, benefits from better absorption. On waking, the skin appears transformed, suppler, clear and soft to the touch. The features are rested, and the face glows with health.
