Glowing Skin, Healthy You: This short guide to skincare can help you maintain the radiant and youthful look you've dreamed of...

Keeping healthy skin is part of a healthy lifestyle. For most people, skin appearance is very important. This is the reason why many skincare companies have formulated different kinds of products such as cleansers, moisturisers, toners, and many more to improve certain skin conditions. There are promising brands that are truly beneficial to the skin; however, if you’re not reading thoroughly and not being careful, you might end up using a product that may irritate your skin rather than nourish it.

There are many causes that affect your skin that may result in many skin problems. But there are also self-help tips that you may do to restore the glow and vitality in your skin. Let’s have a look at some things that can improve your skin condition…

Water: The skin is made of cells, and cells in the body need water to function well. This is why enough water intake is essential to help our skin. Keeping hydrated helps the body to flush out the toxins and increases the blood flow to the skin resulting in a healthy and glowing appearance.

The recommended amount of water intake daily is at least eight glasses of water, so make sure to prioritise drinking plenty of water if you want to keep your skin happy.

Healthy Diet: As the well-known saying goes, you are what you eat. A healthy diet is a very important factor to keep your skin healthy. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables contributes to supplying your body with the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that the skin needs. It is important to avoid processed food because the added sugar in these types of food decreases the collagen and elastin in the skin.

Supplements: Vitamin E, collagen, and CBD aids in healthy glowing skin. They come in different forms such as collagen and vitamin E, aside from being available in capsule form, it also comes in a drink form either infused or on its own. As for cannabidiol, it is available as CBD balm for direct skin application and can also be taken orally like CBD oil and CBD capsules.

Aloe Vera: This plant is one of the best gifts from nature. Not only that it keeps the skin moist, but it also has healing properties that stimulate cell growth. It also soothes the skin without clogging the pores.

Cannabidiol (CBD): This hemp extract wouldn’t have risen to fame if it didn’t have powerful therapeutic properties. Using CBD oil for anxiety and depression, insomnia, and chronic pain is a common thing these days. But aside from anxiety and pain relief, and potent anti-inflammatory properties, it can also nourish the skin. Also, studies and anecdotal evidence suggest that CBD may be useful in treating some skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and acne. What’s more, this natural supplement is available in various formats, such as edibles like CBD gummies, vapes like disposable vape kits, tinctures and endless topicals like creams, face serums, ointments and more.

Virgin Coconut Oil: Known for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties, coconut oil helps with nourishing the skin. Do take note that some people with sensitive and blemish-prone skin may not apply it directly to their skin due to being comedogenic; it can be consumed orally and mixed on your diet.

Sunscreen: Many people overlook adding and applying sunscreen in their skincare routine, and this should not be the case. Applying sunscreen is an important habit because it protects the skin from harmful UV rays from the sun, even on cloudy days. It blocks these harmful rays reducing the risk of contracting skin cancer by 50%, and it also prevents premature skin ageing.
