6 Ways to Maintaining Healthy Skin


Green tea for healthy skin:

Green tea is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help sooth and reduce redness in the skin. Some experts believe green tea can help reduce collagen destruction that leads to wrinkles to help maintain healthy skin. Try starting with even just one cup of green tea a day so increase your antioxidant intake.

Vitamin C:

Topical vitamin C applied to the face has been shown to increase collagen production and protect against UV rays. When L – ascorbic acid, a type of vitamin C, is used, research showed the vitamin can improve pigmentation as well as inflammatory skin issues. Healthy skin can be obtained from not only topical vitamin C but taking it in supplement form as well.

Reduce stress for healthy skin:

Stress is not only felt mentally, but physically as well. Stress can cause breakouts due to an increase in hormones, making the skin oilier and lessening the body’s defense against bacteria. Make sure to get adequate sleep and give yourself time off for relaxation to calm the mind and reduce stress. Did you know that acupuncture can help reduce the stress response and keep you calm and happy? Yep!

Monitor sun exposure:

It is common knowledge that high amounts of sun exposure over the years damages your skin and causes wrinkles. Make sure to always wear sunscreen on your face to protect against harmful UV rays. Even if it is overcast outside, you are still exposed to UV rays. It is important to wear a high SPF sunscreen on your face year round to prevent wrinkles and skin cancer.

Omega-3 fatty acids:

Increasing your intake of omega-3 fatty acids is not only good for overall health, but can also help reduce wrinkles and keep the skin looking youthful. These fatty acids can be found in salmon, nuts, seeds, and fish oil supplements.
