As humans, our skin begins to age around the age of 25 and escalates even more after the age of 30. But not to worry — although we can’t avoid skin aging, we can slow it down by following these 10 secrets for healthy, youthful, and glowing skin.
Secret #1: Maintain a Daily Skincare Routine with Natural Products
In the morning when you wake up, give your face a good cleanse, apply a toner, moisturize with a natural honey skincare product such as the Tupelo Honey Skin Cream from Bees and Botanicals, and apply sunscreen before heading out of your house. Even if it isn’t very sunny outside, harmful UV rays are still present and can cause discoloration and dark spots to your skin, and SPF can help you maintain a smoother complexion and more even skin tone.
In the evening, remove all your makeup, cleanse your face, apply your toner, and lastly moisturize with another natural honey skincare product — Almond Honey Night Cream. This not only helps clean off the dirt and grime that your face has accumulated throughout the day, but leaves your skin feeling velvety smooth, nurtures your skin with natural antioxidants, and leaves your skin with a beautiful, youthful glow.
Secret #2: Drinks Lots of Water
Staying hydrated is another key to having youthful, glowing skin. Our skin is approximately 64 percent water, meaning if we are dehydrated, not only will we struggle with keeping our skin glowy and healthy, but it will also struggle to fight off bacteria and other toxins from getting into our skin. So be sure to drink plenty of water — at least half of your body weight in ounces — per day to keep your skin healthy, refreshed, and strong.
Secret #3: Protect Your Skin from the Sun
As we said earlier, the sun has harmful UV rays that can cause damage to our skin. Some of these damages include dark spots, discoloration, and, over time, wrinkles. So be sure to apply a nice, all-natural SPF before leaving your house (aim for 50 SPF and higher). Be sure to apply a nice moisturizing honey lip balm to your lips as well to help protect them from the elements.
Secret #4: Don’t Wear a Lot of Makeup Every Single Day
This is because it is important to allow ample time for your skin to simply breathe and not have your pores clogged by foundations, concealers, and so forth. This will help keep your skin healthy and elastic. It also takes one extra step out of your nightly skincare routine!
Secret #5: On the Days That You Do Wear Makeup, Be Sure to Remove It Every Night
If you are leaving your makeup on throughout the night, you are inviting bacteria to your face — and nobody wants that. When mascara and eyeliner are left on, you are putting yourself at risk for irritation and infections. As for foundation and concealer, this will clog your pores and is just asking for a pimple or a full-blown breakout to happen depending on your skin type. In order to prevent this from happening, be sure to thoroughly remove your makeup each night and give your face a good cleanse afterward with all-natural honey skincare products.
Secret #6: Get Your Zzz’s
We all know how important sleep is, and without a good night’s rest, we can often find our skin looking dull and tired with dark circles around our eyes. That being said, if your goal is youthful, glowing skin, be sure to get at least 7 hours of sleep per night.
Secret #7: Eat a Good Diet
It is important to take note of how your diet affects your skin. Not only will a healthy diet provide you with healthier, clearer, and more youthful skin, but it can also help to prevent skin cancers such as melanoma or carcinoma. When you eat foods such as fish, nuts, and olive oil that contain omega-3 fatty acids, you can help with collagen production in your skin, which helps to prevent premature wrinkles and skin sagging and provides a smoother and more supple appearance.
Secret #8: Don’t Touch Your Face Too Much
Not only is this a huge no-no with the current coronavirus pandemic that has swept the world, but touching your face can also cause bacteria from your hands to seep into your pores and cause breakouts
Secret #9: Be Sure to Exfoliate
Exfoliating your skin helps to prevent clogged pores and get rid of any lingering dead skin to uncover fresh new cells below and promote a youthful, glowing complexion. It is recommended to exfoliate your skin twice a week, and by keeping up with a regular exfoliation routine, you will open the way for your all-natural honey skincare products such as your Tupelo Honey Skin Cream to penetrate deeply into your skin and leave you looking fresh and healthy.
PRO TIP: This is another reason why opting for all-natural, paraben-free, and vegan products is an absolute must — the last thing you want is to have harsh chemicals penetrating deep into your skin and causing any irritation or other issues. Be sure to opt for all-natural honey skincare products to receive the most benefits.
Secret #10: Get Your Sweat On!
Exercise increases blood circulation throughout the body and nourishes the skin cells, so be sure to exercise regularly for skin that is healthy, glowy, and youthful. The style of exercise is completely up to you, whether you are more of a runner, a yogi, or enjoy lifting weights — as long as you are getting your heart rate up and getting a sweat on for at least 30 minutes, three days a week, you can rest assured that your skin will thank you for it in the long run.
By following these skincare secrets, you can expect to see changes in your complexion in no time. In fact, we even suggest taking before and after photos of your face if you currently don’t follow many of these secrets so you can see a side-by-side difference in a few weeks when your skin begins to evolve!
