Clear skin, we all want it, but sometimes it seems like it’s impossible to achieve. After all, with hormones and toxins wreaking havoc on our skin, a clearer complexion seems like a myth.
However, while it may seem like an impossible feat, it’s actually not so far out of reach. Clear skin is totally attainable, even if you have sensitive, dry, or oily skin.
One of the best ways to get blemish-free skin is to make small lifestyle changes in order to help get your skin back on track. That, in combination with some facial treatments, will help you achieve clearer, glowing skin.
1. Hydration and a Balanced Diet
Drinking enough water is crucial, for both your overall health and the health of your skin. When you are not properly hydrated, it can cause your skin to become:
- Tight and rough
- Red and inflamed
- Flaky and scaly
- More susceptible to breakouts
One of the best ways to make sure your skin is properly hydrated is to drink water. Drinking at least 8 glasses a day will help rid the body and skin of toxins. If you aren’t used to drinking that much water in a day, start small and work your way up. Once you make drinking water a habit, and you begin to see the benefits for yourself, it will be much easier to drink 8 glasses a day.
However, a healthy and balanced diet is just as important as hydration when it comes to clear skin. While having some junk food every once in a while is okay, it should definitely be eaten in moderation.
By cutting down your processed food, sugar, and dairy intake you can effectively reduce your risk of a breakout. So what foods should you eat in order to improve the health of your skin?
One of the best foods to include in your diet is foods high in antioxidants. Eating more antioxidants can help protect your skin from sun damage, and help ease the pain and severity of breakouts.
You may have what you need for healthy skin already laying around the house or in your pantry. For example, green tea and chamomile extract greatly soothe the skin.
2. LED Light Therapy
If you feel like your topical acne treatments aren’t working fast enough, you’re not alone. So what’s the alternative? Well, one of the best treatments to help reduce breakouts is LED Light Therapy.
LED Light Therapy is a form of low-level light energy that penetrates the skin to cause different reactions and target different issues.
Some of the greatest benefits of LED treatments are skin rejuvenation, repair of tissue and promotion of wound healing.
Additionally, LED treatments help stimulate the production of collagen which helps enhance the skin’s appearance and reduce breakouts.
Some additional benefits of LEd Light Therapy include:
- treat acne
- pigmentation of the skin
- increase cell regeneration
- dilated capillaries
3. Get Enough Sleep
Getting the right amount of rest can greatly impact the appearance and feel of your skin. From bedding to sleep deprivation, our skin needs those hours of shuteye to repair itself.
When you sleep, the skin works to restore itself through a process called regeneration, and lack of sleep can lead to a tired-looking complexion, dark circles, puffy under-eye bags and sometimes even breakouts.
So whether this means turning your phone or TV off an hour earlier than usual, taking a relaxing bubble bath before bed or giving meditation a try! Your skin will thank you.
The Key Takeaway
All in all, one of the best ways to get clearer and healthier skin is by making some simple lifestyle changes. So try and drink more water, make healthier diet choices, and invest in a facial. It can help improve the overall look and feel of your skin.
