Is there a secret to glowing skin? Or is it just luck? Although genes inherited from your parents are a part of your skin’s history, they don’t tell all.

What do great skin people do every day? How can you make your skin glow? It may not be as difficult as you think. You are probably already doing these things regularly.

  • Makeup overnight

Overnight makeup, especially heavy oil-based primers and foundations, can cause clogged pores that can lead to acne.

The risk of unsightly, unattractive acne may not be enough to convince you. But would the risk that premature wrinkles might? New York City dermatologist Eric Schweiger explained to the Huff Post that “free radicals” (often from pollution) can remain on your skin if you don’t clean your face at night. Free radicals can cause collagen to break down over time. This leads to the formation of fine lines and prematurely aging skin.

Schweiger recommended that you also remove eye makeup regularly. If left on for too long, eye makeup can cause hair follicles to become clogged and harbor bacteria that can lead to styes and other eye infections.

  • Use the right products

Utilizing skin care products for great skin is not about spending a fortune or piling on a ton of product at once. Knowing your skin’s needs is key to choosing the right products. A visit to a dermatologist, or an aesthetician, is a smart decision if you don’t know how to determine your skin type.

Dr. Julia Carroll, a Toronto dermatologist, told Elle Canada that there is one universal rule to skin care: “Respect the following skin care commandments: Cleanse, moisturize, protect and treat.” Carroll recommended that you invest your money in the treatment portion of your plan. This would include a topical vitamin C with at least 10% ascorbic acid for day, and a glycolic acid for night. Carroll says that it can take eight weeks to see a difference in your skin’s appearance, including fine lines and wrinkles. It is worth having patience.

  • Take the right supplements

Could beauty actually be found in a pill? There aren’t magic pills that will instantly fix all your skin problems, but there are some supplements that can help improve the health of the largest organ of your body.

Evening primrose oil is a rich source of gamma linolenic (GLA), an essential omega-6 fat. It has many benefits for the skin, including beautiful shine. Dr. Andrew Weil, a practitioner of integrative medicine says that evening primrose oil nourishes the skin, hair and nails as well as the joints. It contains GLA, which helps to strengthen the skin barrier and decrease moisture loss. It is recommended for premenstrual syndrome, arthritis, autoimmune disorders, premenstrual disorder, and healthy skin, hair and nail growth. Weil recommends a daily intake of 1,000 mg and suggests waiting eight weeks for results.

You are already taking an Omega-3 supplement and you will be able to have beautiful skin. Omega-3 is a wonderful supplement to fight off Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular disease. It also helps the skin prevent sunburns from UV damage. According to Ildi Pekar, a facialist, fish oil is good for your heart and skin. But it’s also great for your skin.

Collagen, the most abundant protein in our bodies, is one of the essential building blocks of skin. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen which causes skin to lose its firmness. Although collagen is found in many foods, it is difficult to absorb by the body. However, high quality collagen supplements have been reduced into bio-available proteins, which can help reduce wrinkles, loss in moisture and reduced elasticity. The powdered form of collagen peptides can be easily incorporated into soups and smoothies.

  • Hydrate with lemon water

Surely everyone knows that drinking plenty of water is a clear path to perfect skin, right? This widely held belief is not supported by science. The limited research shows that, while adequate hydration is vital for many bodily functions, it can only temporarily plump the skin when it comes to aging skin. However, it can’t replace the anti-aging benefits of sun protection and topical emollients.

Don’t forget the water canteen! Although there are some issues with lemon water, lemon juice can be added to water to provide a double dose of hydration and a strong boost to your daily vitamin-C levels. Vitamin C is an essential component of your body’s production and maintenance of skin-building collagen. Vitamin C can be ingested to protect your skin from sun damage. Vitamin C’s miracles are magnified when it is combined with vitamin E or zinc. So, add a few almonds to your daily diet.

  • Avoid alcohol

Years of excessive alcohol consumption can lead to real health problems, including some nasty skin conditions that are pretty easy to spot. The body’s alcohol disease is characterized by persistent facial redness, flushing and hyperpigmentation as well as skin-yellowing jaundice. You don’t have to be much concerned if you drink moderately.

The U.S. Office of Disease Prevention states that moderate drinking is for women one drink per day and seven per week. Heavy drinking is defined as eight or more drinks per week. You are now considered to be high-risk drinking if you drink one glass of red wine each night with dinner, three margaritas with your girlfriends on Friday night, and one glass of red wine at the weekend brunch. It’s not the image of binging that you associate with “keg at a frat party”, is it?

Drinking after a night can cause you to feel bloated and dehydrated, which is not good for your health. Alcohol can also cause long-term effects. It reduces the absorption of nutrients and depletes our bodies with essential vitamins and minerals. Jairo Rodriguez, a New York City nutritionist who advises fashion elites, said to Vogue that alcohol is one of the most damaging and aggressive substances to your skin. “My patients joke with me that if you want to age well, drink.”

  • Eat healthy foods

Even the most diligent of beauty routines cannot combat the effects of a poor diet. Forbes quoted Jessica Crescenzi, Beauty Guru NYC, as saying that “whatever’s happening in your gut will eventually show up on your skin.” What are the best food choices for perfect skin? There are many options!

Salmon and other fatty fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acid, anti-inflammatory vitamin E, and free radical fighting vitamin. Fish is an excellent source of protein which is crucial in increasing collagen production. Avocados are rich in vitamin C and healthy fats. Balanced amounts of omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids (such as linoleic Acid) are found in nuts and seeds. This helps prevent your skin from becoming thin. Tomatoes and bell peppers are rich in carotenoids, which protect the skin from sun damage, wrinkles, and even cancer. Broccoli also contains a special compound called Sulforaphane that may prevent skin cancer. Studies have shown that green tea can increase blood flow and protect the skin from UV damage. Even dark chocolate rich in antioxidants can benefit your skin. It can increase thickness, hydration and sun protection, provided that it is low in added sugars.

  • Avoid smoking

Responsible for nearly six million deaths every year, it’s certainly no secret that smoking cigarettes is terrible for your health. You may be shocked at the damage that cigarettes can do to your skin.

Research has shown that smoking cigarettes directly causes premature wrinkles and skin sagging. Every puff of nicotine causes blood vessels to constrict, preventing nutrients and oxygen from reaching your skin. This can lead to collagen and elastic fibers being broken down. These lines are common in smokers’ mouths. These lines are sometimes called smoker’s lines. They are caused by the puckering in the lips when you inhale. Crow’s feet may also form around your eyes due to the constant squinting that you do when trying to keep smoke from your eyes.

And it gets even worse. It can lead to poor wound healing, skin cancers such as melanoma and a higher incidence of psoriasis. This is an inflammatory condition that causes itchy, red patches on the skin.

People who stop smoking can expect to see a natural rejuvenation of their skin. One study in Italy showed that there was a noticeable improvement in the skin’s appearance after just nine months. It’s a strong argument to quit smoking.

  • Get a good night’s sleep

There is a good reason they call it beauty sleep.

New York Dermatology Group’s Jessica Weiser told Vanity Fair that lack of sleep can lead to puffiness, dark under-eye circles and dryness. This in turn leads to an exaggerated appearance and accelerated signs of aging. Bad sleeping habits can trigger stress-inducing cortisol production, which can cause acne, eczema and even psoriasis.

You can make your time in the dreamland feel more like a spa trip. You can replace your cotton pillowcase with a silk one. Health was told by Dr. Debra Jaliman that sleeping on your side against a cotton pillowcase can create deep lines in your forehead and cheeks, and sap valuable moisture from your hair and skin. A silk or satin upgrade will make your skin feel smoother and protect your delicate skin from wrinkles. Lauren Valenti (beauty editor at Marie Claire) tried out a silk pillowcase for a week. Her skin felt softened and had less visible redness.

  • Keep out of the sun

We all know that sun exposure can lead to premature skin aging. But did you know how many wrinkles could be attributed to the sun? An analysis of almost 300 Caucasian women found that the UV rays of sunlight are responsible for 80 percent of visible signs of aging. This includes wrinkles and skin texture and pigmentation changes. This is enough information to make parasols a resounding success.

Many people believe that if their childhood was spent outdoors, then the damage is already done. Dr. Perry Robins, president and CEO of The Skin Cancer Foundation, says that this is not true. For years dermatologists believed that most sun exposure occurred before the age 18. Although we now know that sun damage can be spread over a lifetime, and that every bit of it matters, many still don’t realize this. It’s important to protect your skin at all ages. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends that all people use sunscreen with at least SPF 15 when they go outside, regardless of weather conditions, and that they reapply after swimming or sweating.

What if you want to get a healthy tan before heading out on the beach? A base tan is not a good option for sunburn protection. According to the World Health Organization, a tan is merely a sign of sunburn and skin producing melanin in order to protect its skin. Are you still looking for that healthy, bronzed glow? Before you head to the next pool party, grab some self-tanner and a wide-brimmed hat.

  • Exercise

It seems like scientists are learning more and more each year about the incredible bodily benefits of exercise. Time has reported on the many benefits our bodies can reap from 150 minutes of exercise per week. Exercise can help prevent Alzheimer’s, reduce depression, recover from illness and shrink fat cells. Exercise can make your skin look healthier. Science Advances published a study showing that moderate exercise can actually slow down the aging process.

Cardiovascular exercise increases blood flow, which delivers more nutrients and oxygen to the skin. Is the gym better than the spa for beauty? Yes, but you should follow the American Academy of Dermatology’s advice to wash your face as soon as you have finished sweating to avoid irritation or breakouts.
