Some say that wrinkles are there to remind you of all the times you’ve smiled or cried your heart out.
For other people, they just betray the passing of the years.
Whether you embrace your wrinkles or wish they could just vanish, there are a couple of things that you should know.
Your complexion is one of the most sensitive organs of your body. Therefore, the one that reflects best your overall well-being.
Acne, red spots, blackheads, all of them are evidence of your overall health. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Because the skin is the outer organ, it rarely gets all the nutrients and hydration it needs.
The truth is, neither do the other organs in your body.
Therefore, if you want smoother skin, then you should follow 4 simple tips. These will not only contribute to the health of your skin but also act as a whole-body rejuvenating ally.
Things That Impact your Skin’s Well-Being
1. Your water intake.
The myth of drinking half a gallon of water per day is long gone. You need to drink a quarter of gallon for every 55 pounds you weigh.
Therefore, if you have 165 lbs., your proper intake should be of 0.75 gallons of water.
2. Your lifestyle.
- Do you smoke?
- Are you sleeping on your left or right side?
- Do you skip the moisturizer?
If your answer to one or more of these questions was yes, then you have some things to reconsider.
These habits ruin the elasticity and quality of your skin. Try to do the reverse, and you’ll be baffled by the results.
3. Your dietary habits.
When it comes to nutrition, there’s one secret I must share with you: the more processed food is, the longer will it take for your body to digest it.
That is because we, as humans, lack the enzymes that recognize all the chemical additives that are found in most foods nowadays.
On the other hand, whole foods feed your body with the nutrients it needs, and this can be seen in your complexion, as well.
These habits are 80% responsible for the marks on your skin and are the main thing to tackle if you want an unwrinkled skin.
4. Your pampering routine.
Just as I mentioned, most nutrients never reach the skin, so using creams has become somewhat mandatory for its well-being.
Maintain a daily routine for your complexion, neck, and cleavage – cleanse, tone, and moisturize every morning and evening – and your face will be glowing at all times.
In other words, make sure your habits include external treatments for your skin (a weekly scrub or mask, too!) and making the right food choices.
Your wrinkles will start to fade away in no time!
