Ok, so you’ve got yourself a pretty decent skincare routine but you’re still missing out on that glow that everyone is talking about. Your complexion seems to still be a little textured and it doesn’t make you feel comfortable in your own skin. Does that mean there’s a product that’s missing from your routine?
Not at all! Just because you haven’t seen the results you want in your complexion, doesn’t mean you have to go out and spend a wad of cash to get your skin looking how you want it to. In fact, we’ve rounded up some totally free things you can start doing that will help your complexion reveal that beautiful glow underneath!
Stay Consistent With Your Routine
If your standards for your skin aren’t very high, then it’s probably ok to skip a day of your routine every now and then, but if you’re looking for some seriously life-changing results, you’re going to have to be strict with yourself. Skipping days in your routine even a couple of times can set you back more than you think and put your goals even further out of reach.
Instead, stay as consistent with your routine as you possibly can. Planning ahead and predicting anything that may make you less likely to do your routine is a game changer, and it will help make sure your skin gets access to those valuable nourishing ingredients twice a day. You’d be surprised how much consistency can make a difference!
Make Time To Relax
If you’re over-stressed, your skin can tell. Whether you’re dealing with mental, physical or emotional stress, your body often starts to show signs of it, and one of the places that can start acting up is your complexion which can become dehydrated, slow at repairing damage, and much more.
Making time for yourself not only helps your mental state but can also do a lot for your skin. The more time you take to make sure you’re relieving stress, the more your complexion will thank you. Whether it’s relaxing while watching TV or taking a walk in the sunshine, anything that helps you relax will help your skin start to look and feel more radiant and happy!
Get Enough Sleep
Having a regular sleep schedule is important for many reasons, but when it comes to the skin, it’s our complexion’s chance to repair any damage done throughout the day and make sure all our hormones are running smoothly. One of the main signs that you’re not getting enough sleep can be dark circles under your eyes, which can be a big eyesore for many people - excuse the pun!
To help get rid of those dark circles and make yourself look more alert and awake, try and get enough sleep each night. On top of that, try and make sure you go to bed at the same time every day - having a consistent sleeping schedule can make the world of difference! If you have trouble with sleeping, you can always try taking a warm shower before bed, or even using some calming essential oils to help your drift off.
When you see an issue with your skin, it can be tempting to try and throw money at the problem to help it go away, but you don’t always have to do that. Sometimes, having a healthy routine and living a healthy lifestyle can be enough. Try these tips and you'll see for yourself!
