Over time, many factors are to blame for the loss of your skin’s smoothness, such as stress, rays from the sun, pollution, dehydration, or even just aging. Not only can these factors affect the smoothness of your skin, but it also makes it more susceptible to wrinkles, age spots, bruises, rough or dry patches, blemishes and a loss of elasticity. Although it is an impossible task for us to regain the baby-soft skin from our childhood, there are still ways to get smoother and healthier skin as an adult.
1. Start from within
Antioxidants are crucial to combat loss of collagen, premature aging and other health concerns. Adding berries and subtracting sugary treats will aid in improving the visible signs of aging, and help to reveal a more youthful appearance. Omega-3 fatty acids are also essential for smooth and radiant skin.
2. Practice a healthy lifestyle
Regular physical activity helps regulate the hormones that are significant in your skin, prevents free-radical damage, while also reducing inflammation. Other than exercise, it is important to get seven to eight hours of uninterrupted sleep every night. This rejuvenates not only your body, but your skin as well.
3. Stick to a cleansing routine
Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize. Remove makeup with a gentle cleanser, followed by a toner to remove any dirt, oil, cleanser or makeup left behind, and then moisturize. You only need to exfoliate your skin once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells and increase collagen production. It is important to also note that over-washing can cause excess oil production, which can lead to breakouts.
4. Hydrate your skin
Using creams and serums with antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and E help nourish your skin, leaving it healthier looking and smooth.
5. Take your vitamins
While the vitamins in your skincare products are important, it is also essential that you are putting vitamins and minerals into your body as well. Vitamins A, C, D and E work from the inside to clear and nourish the skin, while protecting it from a wide variety of skin issues.
