Tips To Improving Skin Health Naturally
When it comes to your hair, skin, and nails, you have a lot of control over their health. Sure, genetics play a huge role, but a lot can be said about what you do, day-to-day. Of course, some products help you, like a good face lotion. But, it’s important to know ways to improve your natural beauty.
From what you put on your plate to how you protect yourself in the sun, there’s a lot you can do to make your skin clearer and healthier. But, want to know the best thing? You don’t need to make significant, dramatic lifestyle shifts.
Apply face lotion
Most face lotions don’t add moisture to the skin. It traps existing water in the skin by preventing it from evaporating. To maximise the amount of moisture your face lotion captures, use it immediately after you dry off.
The cool thing about our Age IQ day and Age IQ night face lotions is they aid in the moisture binding process. Sodium hyaluronate is one of the key ingredients in our lotions. Naturally present in the skin, sodium hyaluronate binds water to the skin for volume and firmness. Our face lotions are also known for the aloe barbaensis leaf water extract. Highly emollient, it’s a great source of moisture and hydration.
Sunday self-care day
Once a week, give your skin a ‘tropical holiday’ by taking a natural oil-infused bath, followed by a face mask, and treating your body to coconut oil in your face lotion (and body moisturiser).
Virgin coconut oil is an effective way to combat dry skin. With Age IQ face lotions on your bathroom shelf, your complexion will always look great, so this could be a way to achieve that look, full body. But with a good lotion, coconut oil is just an occasional treat.
Exercise, to cleanse skin
A botanical cleanser and our face lotion are the best products in your anti-ageing defence. But there are things you can do to cleanse your skin from the inside. We know cardio is awesome for your physique but it’s a lesser known fact that exercise helps keep your skin healthy. The increased blood flow carries oxygens and nutrients to working cells, including the skin. This flow moves waste products from working cells, including free radicals – similar to the detoxifying power of our Age IQ face lotion. If you’re an outdoor exerciser, just make sure you apply sunscreen after your face lotion.
Sleep on your back
For all your tummy sleepers, burying your face in the pillow can cause dark circles and puffiness in your eyes. If you use our Age IQ night face lotion, it creates a barrier between you and your pillowcase, guarding you against wrinkles and lines.
Sleeping face-down also constructs the blood vessels and fluid is released from the circulatory system (from tiny flaps in the walls of the vessels). The result? Dark circles and lines on the side of the face you normally sleep on. So, don’t forget to apply your Age IQ face lotion and train yourself to sleep on your back.
Oh, and don’t forget to eat lots of fruit and veggies.
