Happy Healthy skin is just days away!
A consistent skincare routine definitely plays a role in keeping skin happy. But the truth is, your skin’s health goes a lot further than what you put on your skin.
A glowing, fresh complexion will not be achieved unless you take into account all factors of your lifestyle, diet and environment.
With over 15 years experience in the beauty industry, I have a lot of skincare secrets. So I've created a 14-day guide with them all in. It has simple, daily goals that help you build healthier skin habits and take care of your skin holistically.
Make these small changes. Follow my guidance. And you'll see happy healthy skin in days
"Your skin is an investment, not an expense."
The Best Sleep Is On Your Back
Getting a good night's sleep is vital for healthy skin. Your skin is repairing while you sleep. Did you know? Your sleep posture can give you fresher, brighter eyes and less wrinkles. Sleeping on your back avoids constricting the blood vessels in your face. And slightly elevating your head with a plump pillow helps you avoid morning puffiness or creases!
Your morning skincare routine is key!
"Your morning routine doesn't have to be fussy or involve multiple steps." - Beth -
-Washing with Refreshing Face Wash will brighten and hydrate your complexion.
- Hydrating Rose Mist will calm and plump.
- Use Recovery Face Cream to lock in moisture.
- And add SPF to protect you from harmful UV
rays (even if you’re staying indoors!) A day cream with SPF simply isn't enough. Use a separate sunscreen throughout the year.
Don’t Skip Your Bedtime Skincare Routine
When you’re asleep, your skin is in recovery mode, working to regenerate itself and repair any damage caused throughout the day.
-Apply richer products, like the Nourish Urself Balm, an hour before bed so it has
all night to work its magic.
-Cleanse your face, gently exfoliate with the Radiance Face Scrub and put on your favourite nightly treatment, this will keep your skin dewy and healthy.
Hydrate your skin from within
Hydration is key to having healthy plump skin. Drinking 2L of water is just as important as eating. If you’re having a hard time keeping up, get two 1L bottles, place them in front of you and make sure you finish both by the end of each day – easy! Add lemon slices, cucumber and/or mint to add a fresh taste and extra nutrients.
Take Ashwagandha first thing in the morning to help keep your stress levels low (cortisol is at it's highest first thing). If you want your skin to glow, then it needs an array of nutrients such as proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals. This can mostly be achieved through diet, but supplementing gives you an extra boost.
Did you know: your immunity, hormones and gut health heavily influence your skin's health.
Taking an Omega supplement daily will help regulate the skin's oil production, improve balanced hydration, subdue breakouts and minimise signs of ageing. Take magnesium before bed, as this will calm your whole body for a dreamy nights sleep.
Take 5. You don't need to become a master, just start with 5 minutes and build it up, if you wish.
Try massaging Restorative Beauty Oil into your temples before too.
Finding time to step away from the chaos of day-to-day life will not only help you to:
- Reduce stress
- Boost circulation
- Calm your nervous
But it will show on your skin too, helping it to glow!
Give Yourself a Facial Massage
When applying your nightly treatment (Nourish Urself Balm is my favourite), take 5 minutes to massage it slowly over your face.
Massage prevents the forming of wrinkles, as it helps to release tension in your face caused by daily stress, also encouraging a peaceful and relaxed sleep.
How to massage your face: Work upwards and outwards to help drain excess fluid, which helps reduce puffiness too.
Good fats are your skin’s best friend!
Glowing dewy skin comes from within, you can really repair and nourish your skin with good fats. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients found in:
- Fish and Seafood (especially Salmon)
- Nuts and Seeds
Omega-3s can also help soften rough, dry skin and have a soothing effect
on irritation and dermatitis.
Go nuts for nuts
Nuts are tiny but they’re a powerhouse of antioxidants, healthy fats, and vitamins.
Snack on a handful of them every now and then, or smooth a natural nut butter on toast for breakfast. Plus they’re delicious, what’s not to love?
Choose nut butters with no added salt and sugar.
Your hands need love too
Your hands really do look brighter and feel softer when using a daily nourishing hand cream.
To keep them really soft, exfoliate all over your hands with the Luminosity Body Scrub once a week. This will get rid of dry skin, age spots and reduce the crinkled look. They will look incredible!
Switch Up Your Pillow Case
Dead skin cells and sebum (oil) easily build up on your pillowcase.
Keep at least two sets of pillowcases so you can wash and switch them out each week and get some shut-eye on clean pillows!
A silk pillow case repels moisture and helps keep your skin hydrated.
Get your yoga on
Yoga is great for your flexibility, but it helps get lots of oxygen to your skin too. The result? A bright and fresh looking complexion.
It’s also a globally proven de-stressor to help you deal with internal skin inflammation and stress-related breakouts!
Even a few sun salutations and downward dogs will get your skin glowing.
Magic Bath Salts
Epsom and Himalayan Salts are a perfect source of magnesium, they help
to bring relief from skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis – soothing the
‘itch’ and reducing redness. Run a warm bath – never a hot one – and let the salts detoxify your skin and relax your muscles.
If you don't like baths or don't get time, then just add the salts to a big bowl of warm water, sit back, relax and soak your feet, you'll still receive the benefits.
Eat the Rainbow
Fruit and vegetables contain powerful antioxidants that help to protect skin from the cellular damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals, smoking, pollution and sunlight can cause wrinkling and age spots. Eat a rainbow of colorful fruit and vegetables to help counteract these effects. Try and include at least 3 colorful foods in every meal.
