Here’s a skincare secret: the most expensive moisturizers, luxurious serums and, yes, even the best facials won’t guarantee you a beautiful complexion. Your skin will look healthy when the rest of your body is healthy. It sounds so simple. But, with our stressed-out, busy lives, finding time to build healthy habits can be hard. We’re here to make it a bit easier. Here are three healthy habits that will not only give you gorgeous skin, but will make you feel gorgeous, inside and out.
Habit 1: Exercise
We’ve talked about how great sweating is for you, but it’s not just the act of sweating that can get you glowing. Exercise increases blood flow, carrying oxygen to all your cells. It also helps flush waste, like free radicals, away from the skin. Exercise also helps lower stress levels, which can improve conditions like acne and eczema.
Habit 2: Meditation
Again, meditation will decrease stress and and the stress hormone cortisol. High levels of cortisol tell your body to produce more oil, which can lead to acne. Cortisol can also lead to premature signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. So, taking just five minutes a day to focus on your breath and the present moment can mean big changes to both your skin and your life. Whether you use crystals and burn sage or use a mindfulness app on your phone, meditation is effective. Imagine, how much more relaxed you’d look and feel if you weren’t always feeling stressed.
Habit 3: Sleep
Not a great sleeper? Lack of beauty sleep can lead to increased inflammation, meaning acne, rosacea and eczema flare-ups. It also means that your body gets less time to heal and rejuvenate, meaning less collagen and more wrinkles. The good news? If you practice the first two habits, exercise and meditation, sleep will become easier.
Still need a skin boost? Even the fittest, calmest, best sleeper can use a great facial once in a while. And our FREEZE facial is the perfect way to practice these healthy habits. We exercise the muscles of your skin with our microcurrent therapy. We encourage deep breathing, especially during the oxygen infusion that’s great for your skin and body. Finally, it’s easy to take a little nap during our LED light therapy.
