Charlize and Katharine were red carpet stunners last evening. This kind of complexion perfection isnâ€™t only for the red carpet. Achieving incandescent Golden Globe skin is possible.
8 tips for truly healthy, glowing skin:
Shorter Cooler Showers
Long, hot showers strip skin of its moisture and wash away protective oils. Limit showers to 10 minutes and keep the water lukewarm not hot.
The skin sheds its cells at a rapid rate. If we don’t get rid of them, they’ll continue to lie on the surface of the skin, making it look dry and dull. Why not try a homemade natural scrub?
Run a Humidifier
Put moisture in the air of your bedroom each night. Dry heat indoors and frigid winter temps really do a number on the skin. Your skin will appreciate being able to soak up the moisture while you get your beauty sleep.
Give your skin an almost immediate glow as your heart delivers rich oxygenated blood to the skin. Exercise also helps boost collagen production which fights skin sagging and wrinkles.
Eat Whole Foods
Whole grains, organic fruits, vegetables and nuts are a must for a clear, bright complexion. Nourishing the body provides the skin with powerful antioxidants to fight free radicals, prevents inflammation, sugar spikes and hormone imbalances which can cause breakouts and blemishes.
We all know hydration needs to happen on the inside first. Sipping water throughout the day is great but doesnâ€™t entirely reach the outer layer of the skin. For surface-level hydration, use a favorite, naturally based body moisturizer for lustrous supple skin.
Fight DNA damaging free radicals, nourish, tighten and brighten with a quality primer before moisturizer, sunscreen and makeup as a first level of protection.
Younger looking skin starts with sunscreen. Harmful UV rays ddamage and disintegrate cells causing premature photo aging and an increased risk of skin cancer. Choose a broad spectrum, naturally based product and apply it each day. In times of intense UV exposure, reapply often.
