3 Skin care tips

Hi guys! Today I thought I would share with you some of my tips when it comes to skin care. Aren’t we all dreaming of having a naturally healthy glow? Below you find 3 tips that really helps me to keep my skin clean and healthy.

Protect yourself from the sun. I use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with spf 50 all year around. This is so important for anti-aging and to protect your skin from pigmentation.

You are what you eat. It is some true in that. Add those fruits and veggies into your diet, they are full of essentials vitamins and minerals that will help your skin glow from the inside and out. Stay hydrated with drinking enough water and eat hydrating food that is high in water content like cucumber, celery, tomatoes, oranges etc. Make sure you’re getting enough vitamin C and zinc that do support the production of collagen and elastin. Healthy fats is so important for your skin and body in general, so go a little nuts with the nuts! Avocado and seeds are also great sources for adding healthy fats to your diet.

Cleansing your skin. Always remove your makeup and hydrate your skin before going to bed. You should also cleanse, hydrate and protect (sunscreen) your skin in the morning before you apply any makeup.

Vitamin-C for health and beauty

When I say vitamin-C, I’m sure many of you think of it as a booster for your immune system to help you fight those colds. Vitamin-C is one of the essential water-soluble vitamins, meaning your body doesn’t store it, you need to get it daily through your diet. Vitamin-C is also a essential nutrient for your skin and beauty too!

Let’s take a look at some of the few beauty benefits from vitamin-C:

It fights wrinkles: Vitamin-C is the most common water-soluble antioxidant in the skin. It prevents damage from free radicals

It brightens the skin: Vitamin-C help your body to produce collagen, that will lead to smoother more glowy skin. 

It protect your skin for sun damage: Eating food laded of vitamins and antioxidants will support skin health and fight signs of aging. It will help the skin’s ability to repair itself. 

Great sources for vitamin-C is citrus fruits (lemons, oranges, kiwi), papaya, broccoli, sweet potato and red bell pepper just to mention some.

As a grown up you should have around 75 – 90 mg vitamin-C daily. Including fruits, berries and greens to your meals will cover that easily!

Vitamin-C booster in a glass!
