In order to get the most out of your skincare routine, there are a number of different holistic lifestyle habits you can incorporate into your day to help maintain a flawless complexion.
Stress can wreak havoc on your skin. When you are feeling stressed, inflammation causing hormones such as cortisol are released by the body. This can result in several unpleasant skin issues, such as breakouts, redness, fine lines and can even break down collagen. While it is impossible to completely avoid stress in your life, there are ways to minimise it. Be sure to set some time aside each week to simply relax and focus on yourself. Whether this is taking a bath or spending a few hours reading your favourite book, it is vital to give your self a break from your busy schedule.
If you find yourself feeling stressed throughout the week, aromatherapy can be a great way to relieve tension. Various research studies have found that smell can trigger emotions that affect our nervous system. Essential oils are a wonderful way to naturally relieve stress, keeping your skin protected against the effects of stress hormones! Our Rapture Perfume Oil contains a unique blend of 100% pure essential oils to evoke a sense of calmness and tranquillity.
Along with this, it is important to eat healthily to maximise the effectiveness of your skincare routine. You skin naturally replaces itself about every 27 days. Combining a multi-step skincare routine brimming with intelligent ingredients with a diet rich in fresh food, antioxidants, minerals and lipids is the key to ensuring your body continues to produce healthy, youthful skin. New scientific evidence is coming to light to suggest that probiotics and gut health has a major impact on your skin. Maintaining gut health through the inclusion of probiotics in your diet can reduce the severity of several skincare concerns, such as including acne, rosacea, inflammation and premature aging.
Along with this, including probiotics in your skincare routine will help you achieve glowing, age defiant skin. Our Ecdysis Bio-Ferment Enzyme Cleanse is a wonderful way to include probiotics in your skincare routine. Containing several intelligent ingredients, such as super-fruit derived AHAs, hyaluronic acid and nourishing plant oils, this cleanser gently exfoliates the skin to reveal brighter, smoother skin and removes all traces of makeup.
It is estimated that between 60-80% of skin damage is caused by the sun. The sun’s rays have the ability to transcend past your skin’s surface and damage the deeper levels of tissue with harmful radiation. The sun’s rays damage your DNA, inhibiting your body’s ability to produce healthy, smoother skin and slowing down the production of collagen and elastin. It is estimated that getting a sunburn just once every two years triples your chance of developing skin cancer. The sun’s ultraviolet rays degrade skin quality on a cellular level, causing an array of skin imperfections, including age spots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. Ensure your skin is protected by wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen each day and reapplying every two hours.
Through a combination of holistic lifestyle habits and an intelligent skincare routine, you can fortify your skin against damage, accelerate renewal and achieve ageless beauty.
