We hear these words daily as the experts give us their best skin care advice. Even though we know the basics, we still want to know the “skinny” on some tried and true skin care secrets—the ones no one is talking about but everyone uses to look great.
Here are the best of the skin care secrets out there…any of them look familiar to you?
Do it in style
For all of the yoga enthusiasts out there, you may not be aware of the amazing skin benefits. Downward dog, warrior position … all will promote a beautiful complexion. Consistent yoga routines help the skin to emit a natural glow. In some Asian cultures, the state of the face is indicative of the health of the body and yoga is an incredible health boosting activity. Throw on your fashionable yoga gear, get out there and do something good for your body … your skin will love you for it.
Sleep on your back
Buy comfy pillows
OK, all you comfy pillow side sleepers; it may be time for a wakeup call. Do your skin a favor and purchase a foam pillow that supports back sleeping in comfort. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, sleeping in certain positions can accentuate and lead to “sleep lines”. These wrinkles that form over night can remain on your skin when you wake. Wrinkles on the cheeks and chin are more evident for side sleepers and the dreaded furrowed brow is seen in face-down sleepers. A good pillow can do wonders as part of your skin care routine.
Get your antioxidants
Your diet can play a part in how your skin looks and behaves. If you search endlessly for the best antioxidant face cream, why not ingest antioxidants instead? Beauty really does come from the inside out, especially when you feed your body with healthy fresh foods rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Good dietary supplements rich in proven antioxidants will pack even more skin care ammunition into your regimen, from the inside out. Antioxidants fight against oxidative damage (the result of pesky free radicals damaging cells). This can create a more youthful, radiant look and protect you against sun damage as well.
Wrinkles be gone
The original Frownies were created in 1889 by Margaret Kroesen. These Wrinkle Eradicators, as they were called, became a huge success years later as family heirs realized the amazing benefits. Four generations later, Kathy Wright is still creating the family’s legacy. Frownies, which can be ordered from As We Change are used by many people including top celebrities. Frownies work by reshaping your face muscles while you sleep, vacuum your house, work or do any other activities. You may not want to wear them out in public though!
