7 Simple Tips for a Brighter Skin

Ditch your dull looking skin for a bright and healthy one. This is attainable first reviewing your lifestyle, diet and and daily skin care habits.

Find 7 very helpful tips:

1.  Minimize Alcohol

Alcohol, while healthy for your body in moderation, can dehydrate and dull your skin. It can also increase the blood flow to the skin’s surface resulting in a flushed appearance that over time can become permanent. Keep your alcohol intake at a minimum for healthy looking skin.

2.  Eat the Right Foods

You are what you eat. Did your mom ever tell you that when you were growing up? While the common thought that food causes your acne is false, the food you eat does affect the health of your skin.

Try eating more foods high in essential fatty acids, such as fish – especially salmon, walnuts and flax seed. Essential fatty acids are crucial to healthy skin because they help boost collagen and help with cell formation, deep under the skin’s surface. This aids in counteracting or slowing down your skin’s aging. You can think of it as feeding or nourishing your skin from within.

3.  Slough Off Dry Skin

One skin care tip that I always try and share is that no matter how hard you try, you can not moisturize dead skin. Dead skin is dead, dry and flaky and it’s not going to go away with moisturizer. As often as you try to moisturize, if you don’t exfoliate, your ashy skin will always come back as soon as the moisturizer wears off.

Exfoliation is key to a brighter complexion and you can exfoliate many different ways. You can use a washcloth daily for gently exfoliation, you can use a daily exfoliating cleanser, a exfoliating treatment product or go deeper with a microdermabrasion or skin care brush. If you exfoliate on a regular basis, you are consistently sloughing off the dead skin which is a crucial step to a brighter complexion.

4.  Start Your Day With Vitamin C

Sure, a dose of orange juice loaded with Vitamin C is good for keeping colds away, but Vitamin C is a power-packed antioxidant that fights off the signs of aging and is also a known skin brightening agent, too! Definitely something your skin would benefit from.

There are quite a few skin care product lines that have complete Vitamin C sets priced from high end all the way to budget. Discover those that work for you.

5.  Brighten with Makeup

Some of the liquid or cream foundations are so heavy and don’t give your skin the ability to shine through. If you’re following the tips above and your complexion is naturally getting brighter, don’t bog your skin down with heavy makeup.

6.  Boost Your Skin’s Moisture Level

Every day, twice a day, you should wash your face. In the morning before you start your day and at night, before bed. For women, washing your face gets rid of makeup, but for men and women who don’t wear makeup, it gets rid the oils and dirt that have built up on your skin’s surface. These oils and dirt can clog pores and leave you with bogged down skin.

Washing your skin reduces the natural oils on the surface and leaves it needing a dose of hydration through a moisturizer. If you skip the moisturizer, your skin is more likely to look older, especially with visible fine wrinkles.

Use a daily moisturizer with SPF in the morning and a night time moisturizer before bed. This is the most basic skin care step: wash and moisturize. Consider a illuminating moisturizer for added glow.

7.  Use a Weekly Brightening Face Mask

There are face masks for all skin types, from dry to oily. Make sure to use one most suitable for your skin.
