These are some simple changes you can make to you skincare and lifestyle to achieve healthier, happier skin.
Include some of these daily for a moisture boost:
● Leafy greens
Use a serum containing hyaluronic acid to keep skin feeling supple throughout the day. It also reduces the look of lines and wrinkles, can calm inflammation, and reduce the symptoms of acne.
The Eminence Organics Strawberry and Rhubarb Serum is a great source of plant based hyaluronic acid.
2. Double Cleanse Daily

3. Get some exercise
Exercising helps your skin and body to function better. The delivery of key nutrients is improved, this can actually help repair some sun and environmental damage. As we age collagen reduces and fibroblasts - the hard working collagen making cells- function less effectively. Thankfully regular exercise boosts the production of collagen, hence the skin’s thickness will increase. Muscle holds onto more water than fat which boosts hydration levels too.
4. You are what you eat
immediately, especially when prone to rosacea, acne, dermatitis or eczema.
Everyone is different, so figuring out what works for you is essential.
The following are some general guidelines for the best foods to eat for healthy skin.
● Berries: They are very high in antioxidants and vitamin C. These have a neutralizing effect on free radicals, leading to a reduction in inflammation and skin aging.
● Red and yellow vegetables: High in vitamin A and C. Vitamin A repairs damaged cells, even reducing some of the effects of sun damage. This combination helps to boost the formation of collagen. Flaky and dry skin could be a sign of a lack of vitamin A.
● Healthy fats: The skin’s structure is partly made up of omega-3 fats. They keep the skin plump, hydrated, and calm. Good sources include wild salmon, mackerel, sardines, tuna, walnuts and flaxseeds. Almonds and avocados are rich in vitamin E which moisturises the skin from within. Olive oil - rich in vitamins A and E- is another important source of healthy fats.
● Zinc: This is more a nutrient than food group. It boosts the immune system, leading to faster skin healing. In particular it has shown very positive results in improving acne. Sources include- beans, chickpeas, spinach, lentils, lean meat, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, and dark chocolate.
It is important to ask your skin therapist which type of exfoliant is most suited to your skin.
