Ever met a dermatologist at a party and refrained from quizzing them for the best skin care advice they can offer? We’ve all been there, and now – you’ll never have to worry about broaching that awkward conversation again!
Here at Skinstation, we’re passionate about our own skin as much as we are yours, and provide quality and proven skin treatments that nourish and boost your natural beauty from within.
So, if you’re wondering what the professionals do to keep their skin looking young, feeling fresh and glowing 24/7 – here’s a few top beauty tips from our dermatologist team!
To ensure your skin is protected from the sun’s hazardous rays, all year round – apply a reasonable amount (½ teaspoon) of sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to your face, neck and ears. Don’t skimp on the application because it’ll do the world of food to your winter-skin!
Eat a skin-saving breakfast
We’ve said it plenty of times, but breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Opt for foods that’ll fill you until dinner, and ones that contain essential fatty acids, including salmon, tuna and halibut. Fatty acids are fantastic for reducing the likeliness of fine lines, sagging and blotchiness.
Relax your skin every now and then
If you’re stressed, it’ll show in your skin! High levels of tension can often spike hormone production, leading to aggravated skin and breakouts. Try to control your stress levels, and in turn, skin will remain calmer – but don’t worry! We understand this is harder said than done, so try to take a 10 minute ‘me-time’ every now and then and apply a natural face mask or nourishing skin cream to rejuvenate pores.
Wear frozen veggies
We know, it sounds a little strange – but frozen peas can soothe itchy, irritated eyes. After a hard day at the office, remove all makeup and skin care products and lay a bag of frozen peas on your eyelids for about 5 minutes. The cold will help to reduce swelling and pigmentation, and unlike inflexible ice packs – the peas will easily conform to the shape of your eye for a faster effect!
High-impact cardio exercise, such as running, can often encourage repeat jarring and weaken collagen, resulting in skin sagging and loss of elasticity.
Yoga has become extremely popular lately, providing an effective yet relaxing alternative to exercise. Yoga moves provide a boost of oxygen to your skin, which is what gives skin that yoga glow after a session, and new research has found that regular yoga practice can even reduce inflammation and stress that in turn speed up skin aging processes. Ah, lovely!
