The Best Practices For Beautiful Looking Skin

Want healthy-looking skin?

       I received facial products to facilitate this post.

 We all want our skin to look nice, especially on our face. I think this is true for most ladies and some men. We seem to be always looking for that product that will take care of acne, dull skin, fine lines, etc. The beauty business is a big one as they market all these different creams, cleansers, and masks that promise us beautiful skin. Over the years, I have tried plenty of beauty products for my skin and I have learned a thing or two about what key ingredients that have helped my skin look nice. I have also learned that beautiful skin is more than just applying a cream to your face. I am over 50 and I always get compliments about how nice my skin looks.

Things that help your skin look great

 There are many different things that you should be doing to achieve healthy skin beyond facial products. Things like eating healthy food, exercising, drinking plenty of water, enjoying drinks with antioxidants like iced coffee and matcha, staying safe in the sun, and other things. Then there are things that you should avoid like smoking, drinking too much alcohol, eating junk food, and worshiping the sun. Taking care of your body from the inside out will help your skin look great. Even sleep can help your skin look its best. If you are having trouble with sleep, you need to check out these sleep tips.

Nine Healthy Things To Keep The Wrinkles Away

 When I select products for my skin, I like to use ones that have natural ingredients in them as I prefer not to put toxic chemicals on my skin. Our skin gets enough crap from the environment so why add more impurities to our skin. So in addition to washing my face with a natural cleanser, I like to use a detox mask weekly on my face for a clearer complexion. I like white charcoal and sulfur absorbs the oils, impurities, and other toxins from my skin. These ingredients help reduce breakouts and are great for detoxifying the skin. A mask that has helped my skin also contains Kaolin, which is a naturally occurring clay that helps absorbs excess oils. This detoxing mask helps cleanse the pores and clarify my skin.

 My favorite part of The Skin Saint 3-in-1 Detox Mask is that it does not have a pungent smell typically associated with high concentrations of sulfur than other similar products have. I can wear this cute mask for the required time and not gag from an awful smell. I also love that this charcoal mask does not stain my hands or clothes. I love applying my face mask and then try to kiss my boys. My boys always laugh at the way that I look. This black mask also does not make my skin itch or affect my son who has sensitive skin when he touches my face. This purifying mask has natural ingredients in it that make my skin look nice. My skin feels so clean and soft after I wash off the skin mask. 

Can A Skincare Laser Device Reduce My Wrinkles

Your skin is affected by what you put into your body

 The saying, "you are what you eat" holds true for your skin. If you nourish your body with healthy foods that are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants then it sure does help your skin. Did you know that coffee is rich in antioxidants? So drink your coffee for your skin. I love making cold brew coffee as it has such a delicious sweet taste and is less acidic. Fruits and veggies are great for skin health as well as foods that are rich in omegas. Drinking plenty of water is another healthy thing for your skin as it helps flush out toxins from your body as well as make your skin soft. Think about a sponge before you get it wet, it is dry and hard but once you wet the sponge it is soft.

Check out some supplements that are great for your skin and body

Exercise can help your skin

 Exercise is important for a healthy body and a healthy body can be beneficial for your skin. I know a lot of people want to avoid exercise as they are too busy but one needs to exercise. Our bodies need exercise to run well like a car needs good gas and maintenance. Exercise is great in many ways for our skin. The sweating helps our skin detox as sweating is healthy. Exercise helps reduce stress which can be bad for our skin. So give exercise a chance and see if it helps your skin but the most important exercise for a healthy heart. If you are not a regular exerciser, I challenge you to walk for 30 minutes a day, 3-5 days a week for a month and see how you feel after a month, you will be amazed.

Bad things for your skin

 Some bad things that affect your skin are things like smoking and the sun. Smoking cigarettes is bad for your health and the harmful effects also age your skin. The harmful rays from the sun can also be harmful to your skin and make it look bad. So it is important to wear a mineral-based sunscreen, even in the winter. Even eating junk food like greasy food can be bad for your skin.

A product that is good for your skin

 One of the easiest ways to treat your skin is by applying a rich cream to it at night, right before bed. That way your skin can soak up the cream and feel softer in the morning. An overnight facial complex can nourishes skin while sleeping If you are looking for anti-aging benefits, then I think that ones with Retinoids work the best on those fine lines. Retinoids are a form of vitamin A that helps renews skin plumpness, elasticity, and hydration. I also like face creams that have antioxidants in it and other skin supplements like CoQ10.

 A product that I am enjoying for my skin that has been helping improve my skin is an Overnight Facial Complex from The Skin Saint. This rich cream is an antioxidant skin rejuvenator that promotes smoother and healthier skin. I like the ingredients that are in this moisturizer like Retinoid, Antioxidant Lipochroman™, and CoQ10. Check out below what these ingredients can do for your skin (info I found from The Skin Saint's website.)

Retinoid: this well-tolerated form of vitamin A renews skin plumpness, elasticity, and hydration.
Antioxidant Lipochroman™: High potency, strongest antioxidant on the market, protects from oxygen and nitrogen-free radical formation (no other antioxidants protect against nitrogen free radicals). Improve the appearance of skin aging changes, including wrinkles, uneven pigment, loss of elasticity and skin redness.
CoQ10 (Ubiquinone): This antioxidant is known to be beneficial in the repair of damaged skin and lessen excess pigment production. The topical application promotes a healthier, more vital and younger appearance to the skin.

 After using this anti-wrinkle cream for a couple of days, I like the way my skin looked. My skin felt smoother and tighter. This rich cream had a pleasant scent and I noticed right away that it reduced the appearance of my fine lines after I rubbed the lotion into my skin. I tend to have dry skin, the perks of living in the southwest desert, so I even use this nighttime cream in the morning and before I put on my makeup. Most days I don't even wear makeup as I like the way my skin looks without any makeup. The below photo shows how healthy my skin looks without any makeup. I find that I all need to put on my skin is a facial cream or lotion.

 I am a simple person when it comes to my skin. I usually just wash my face at night and apply moisturizer both in the morning and at night. I will use a face mask about once a week. I really don't like to fuss with skin products that take time. A couple of months ago I tried out a skincare laser device and I had a hard time dedicating the five minutes a day I needed to use the laser device. I succeeded in using the device for 2 months. I did see results from the laser device but I think that these other things that I discussed have helped keep my skin looking beautiful over the age of 50. I will continue to take care of my body and hopefully, in return, I will keep my healthy skin.
