How To Improve Your Skin in 2021
You already know the importance of leading a balanced lifestyle, with regular exercise, drinking enough water and eating a healthy diet – but what other factors can help significantly improve your skin health and skincare routine in 2021? Take a look at the best ways to improve your skin in 2021 we’ve outlined below!
1. Find your skincare routine
A preventative approach towards skincare is going to be a great asset for your skin in long term, and easier than trying to correct skin damage after it has happened.
The best way to achieve this, and maintain healthy skin, is by creating (and consistently following) an uncomplicated, simple-to-follow, highly effective skincare routine (and dedicating the time to complete it each day).
Ideally, aim to wash and cleanse the skin twice a day (morning and evening) to remove impurities, follow by toning and a high-performance active serum and moisturiser.
The Stemlab range is 100% natural, vegan and not tested on animals for the safest approach to nurture your skin. Each product contains proven active ingredients like vitamin C, white willow bark, Co-enzyme Q10, malic acid and fruit enzymes to deliver effective improvements to your skin health in a gentle way.
Even if you don’t have a current skin regimen that works for you and your skin concerns, or have signs of existing damage and premature ageing (such as fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation), active products can help reduce existing damage and protect and prevent against future damage.
2. The power of sleep
A lot of us have busy lifestyles and deal with many competing demands that requiring great juggling skills! It’s easy to wonder where the time has gone and trying to get more hours back in a day.
Although you may have learnt to function on a few hours sleep, or are an ace at pulling all-nighters, make time for sleep too.
Sleep is so essential to your health, not because it’s a time where you wind down and rest, but also because it is a time of healing and reparation. While you slumber the skin begins to repair itself against damage.
By contrast, when you are sleep-deprived, this puts more stress on the body which can increase the chance of breakouts and other skin issues.
If you can get a minimum of 7-8 hours a night it will make a big difference!
Vitamin D has many roles in the body and plays an essential part in maintaining healthy skin too.
Although 90% is generated from the sun (and the rest from certain foods), we all know too much exposure to harmful UVA/UVB rays is probably the biggest cause of premature aging and other conditions.
It’s essential to protect your skin with a high-value SPF every single day (even overcast ones), but also to receive enough Vitamin D. Specifically, Vitamin D3, which is responsible for helping the skin protect itself from environmental aggressors and heal from wounds, among other benefits.
Research has confirmed we do not receive enough from the sun or our diet and you may wish to take Vitamin D3 supplements to boost your body’s store of levels. Another option is a multi-vitamin that contains collagen, silica and other beneficial skin and general health vitamins. Please always consult with your doctor to assess suitability before taking a new supplement.
