6 Rules For Sexy Summer Skin

Are you dreaming of sun-kissed summer skin but unsure how to get there?

Are you suffering from acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis or any type of rash?

We’re going to let you in on some secrets to build the perfect skin routine!

This may come as a shock, but it’s NOT about expensive moisturizers.

For beautiful, glowing, and youthful skin, you need to start from the inside. Best skin practices are best body practices.

 

6 Rules for Sexy Skin

🚰Drink 2-4L of water per day

🍊Take 3g vitamin C throughout the day

👨👩👧👧Take a scientifically proven dermal collagen daily

😴Sleep 7+ hrs every night

🌿Eat an 80-90% plant-based diet

️Use an SPF containing moisturizer daily (even on rainy days)

 

1. Hydration

You are 60% water. Your skin contains 64% water. If you aren’t properly hydrated, neither is your skin. 

One of the best topical treatments for skin is hyaluronic acid. This is because it is a humectant, meaning that it pulls water into the skin with it. This plumps the skin up, reducing the look of wrinkles and fine lines. Start with proper hydration to see the look of your skin improve!

If you have no kidney conditions or concerns, drink 3-4 L of water per day. 

2. Vitamin C

It has been shown that taking 3 grams of vitamin C per day increases collagen building in the skin. 

When taking vitamin C, at a higher dose, it is brought to the dermal layer of your skin, where collagen is made. 

Your skin receives its hydration (water) and nutrients from your blood. Blood vessels carry oxygen, water and nutrients to the deepest layer of your skin and disperses it throughout. This means that if your insides are happy, and healthy, then your skin will be too. 

3. Take Collagen Daily 

Take a scientifically proven collagen daily. The collagen that we use the most is animal based, and has studies that show reduction in fine lines around the eyes within 4 weeks. 

When you’re taking a good collagen, you should notice that your nails are growing quickly, and are very strong; your hair grows faster, and your skin has a nice glow to it!

4. Sleep

Sleep is an under-rated tool for staying healthy and having beautiful skin. There are many studies showing the importance of sleep for all aspects of our body, and our health. 

You need a minimum of 6 hours of sleep per night. And, you can’t “catch up” on sleep that is missed. 

When you’re asleep your body is cleaning, repairing, and resting. As you sleep, your brain stores new information, cleans itself of toxins. Your body repairs cells, and releases important chemicals like hormones and proteins for different functions. 

5. Plant-based diet 

It’s hard to say one common diet for everyone, because we’re all so different and have different sensitivities and allergies. But if we were to say one over-arching rule, it would be to consume more plants, and less processed foods. 

Focusing on plants, or a plant-based diet gives you foods full of antioxidants, rich in different colours, vitamins and minerals.  

Shift your focus to at least 80% plant-based and you’ll naturally increase your nutrients, consume more nutrient dense foods and less processed and harmful chemicals. 

6. Use SPF daily

It’s become common knowledge that we need protection from the sun and damaging UV rays, but some are still unaware that you should use an SPF every day, no matter what the weather is like. 

Harmful UV rays can penetrate through the atmosphere and clouds, so you need SPF protection even if you live in the pacific northwest where there is more rain than sun. 

Also, don’t forget your neck, décolletage and hands!

Skin Health

The reason that potions and lotions on your skin has little effect is because the skin that you show the world is made up of dead cells. Your skin is made from the inside out, meaning that everything that you put into your body is used as ingredients to make all types of new cells.

 

It has been shown that taking 3g of vitamin C per day gets to the dermal layer of your skin, which is where the vessels are, bringing nutrients to the surface. Vitamin C is one of the vital ingredients to building new collagen! You stop making as much collagen as you break down at the age of 25, and that is why we begin to see the signs of ageing.

Take care of your insides for a gorgeous outside, and then add some fun topical treatments like micropen facials, or PRP injections.
