Our lifestyle affects our skin massively, but there are many simple and effective changes you can make, from drinking more water to seeking out spiritualism…
Whether you have an outdoor or an indoor profession, enjoy drinking on the weekends, wear heavy makeup, or cook in a stuffy kitchen… everything about our lifestyle affects our skin. Unfortunately, this means that our unhealthy habits take their toll, especially on exposed and sensitive faces, resulting in blocked pores, breakouts, lines and wrinkles.
Clearly, skin ‘care’ is not all about skincare products. The brightness and quality of our skin is rooted in our physical and mental wellbeing. With this in mind, here are some ways you could improve the health of your skin.
Prioritize sleep. If you know you have to be up at say, 6am, then going to sleep at midnight is just not going to cut it. Work out how much sleep you’ll need to get your full 8 hours and make sure you go to bed at the right time. It’s good to overestimate, so make time to prepare for bed and actually go to sleep, so you’re not stressing that you’re going to wake up tired.
Address your stress – this is the biggest factor affecting skin. Even if you don’t have big things to stress about, stress can build up throughout the day, especially after a long shift at work. Identify the causes of your stress and try to remind yourself not to bring work home with you. You could practice mindfulness through activities such as yoga and meditation, as a way of de-cluttering your thoughts.
If you’re experiencing real trouble eliminating stress, it might be a good idea to consider spiritualism. For example clairvoyance, which comes from the French ‘clear’ ‘vision’, can give you some surprising insights into your life. With clairvoyant readings available online or over the phone, you can get a customized reading and the opportunity to openly discuss your worries. Talking is key to achieving a clear and focussed mindset, and no matter how big or small, Readers can offer help during stressful times.
Take a break
Allow yourself time off. If you’re one of those people constantly thinking about what needs to be done tonight, tomorrow, or next week at work, take a breath and chill out. At least one day a week should be your ‘day off’, without any tasks or worries, have a day a week purely for fun and relaxation – it will do you the world of good.
Drink LOTS of water. Replace coffee with water, replace sugary drinks with water, get yourself a large reusable bottle and keep filling and sipping throughout the day. Drinking a large glass in the morning can eliminate that groggy feeling and help you flush out toxins. If this sounds boring, and you’re craving flavor, you could infuse it with lemons or cucumber, use some low-sugar squash, drink herbal teas, or up your fruit and veg intake. Fruits like peaches and oranges are almost 90% water; snacking on these can be great for hydration, and can also provide essential nutrients and vitamins.
There are many simple changes you can make to your life which will do your skin the world of good, but also your general health and mental wellbeing. It’s as easy as drinking a glass of water! You can do it right now, whats stopping you?
