Clear Skin Tips
Sometimes, it's not about the choice of products you use. After all, the way we live, day to day habits and lifestyle affects our health inside and out.
1. Good night’s sleep.
It’s not the first time you’ve heard of getting a restful sleep. Cliché, but true. Allow your precious cells to renew throughout the night and wake up to refreshed skin with no dark eye circles!
2. Manage stress.
We get it. How is that even possible? Girlfriend, you can do this! Learn how to switch off your working devices and do something you love! Bubble bath, Netflix or just chilling with your pet! Better yet, sweat it out!
3. Healthy gut.
You are what you eat. It’s a no brainer! Eat fresh vegetables and fruit everyday and, if you need a snack, reach for some nuts! Incorporating more fibre in your diet can help to boost healthy bacteria and helps with constipation too.
This is not up to us. Leave it to the specialists! It’s best to get our hormones level check by a healthcare professional or dermatologist and see what could be the best cure!
