Our skin is always changing with new skin developing all the time. Apart from damage to the very deep layers, this means that it really is possible to improve your skin and make it more healthy and the results can show very quickly. Our six ways to achieve healthy skin should be all you need to do to stay glowing even as you age.

How to get healthy skin: here’s what to do

How to get healthy skin: Hydrate

Our skin holds a lot of water and can start to look very dry and irritated when it isn’t hydrated enough. Water will plump your skin to give it a healthy glow and will ensure that it looks and feels soft and supple. Water is also essential for all of your body – so drink plenty.

How to get healthy skin: Eat antioxidants

Antioxidants are known to help the body fight free radicals – those nasties that come from the environment and can cause wrinkles, spots and even have been indicated in incidences of skin cancer. You can find antioxidants in fruits and vegetables.

How to get healthy skin: Eat fats

A low-fat diet will make your skin look and feel very dry and can even exacerbate spots. Excellent sources of fats are olive oils, coconut oil, and animal fats – but you should avoid refined vegetable oils. Some skin conditions such as eczema can also be helped by the addition of good fats to the diet.

How to get healthy skin: Stay out of the sun

We are all aware that too much sun can lead to skin cancer and that is probably the most unhealthy skin condition you can experience. Avoid the hot sun, wear a hat and long sleeves on hot days and use sunscreen if you must be out. All you need is around 10 minutes a day in the sun to get all the vitamin D you need.

How to get healthy skin: Use organic or natural skin products

It is never a great idea to put chemicals on our skin – especially if you are sensitive. So always try to choose the most natural products you can find. Coconut oil makes a great moisturizer, while a facemask made from avocado can be very soothing.

How to get healthy skin: Limit stress

You may not have thought that stress could impact on your skin, but how you are feeling can influence how your body heals. Your body may be poised in the stressful flight or fight mode during periods of stress leaving not much energy for your immune system to do its job. This can lead to breakouts or flare-ups of skin conditions.

So, looking after your skin takes more than just leaving it be. Give it the care and attention and you can get healthy skin in no time.
