Supercharge your beauty routine with a few morning habits that are going to boost the benefit of your regular beauty regime. How you start your day is definitely going to show on your face. Here are a few quick and simple tips for glowing skin.
1. Use an antioxidant serum
Anti-oxidants such as vitamin C and E protect the skin from dehydration and also those aging free radicals from Ultra-violet ray’s pollution and bad dietary habits. Use the serum, right after you cleanse your face. Apply it and then wait for a few minutes. After that, you can put on your moisturizer. Anti-oxidant serums just double the effects of your moisturizer and your sunblock because of the added nutrients which strengthen the skin.
2. Eat more proteins
A breakfast high in proteins with eggs, nuts and yogurts builds collagen. Collagen is the protein in skin that keeps it off from wrinkling and your skin from sagging. People who eat protein for breakfast feel full for a longer period of time and tend to overeat less. Proteins also prevent hair loss and are the building blocks for shinier and stronger hair.
3. Use SPF
SPF is a must. You have to use it every day, even on a cloudy day. Take a coin size amount of SPF and apply it to your face and neck. Then add your moisturizer and make up with SPF for added protection. And do not forget to use it on your eyes, your lips, your neck and the back of your hands because this can also show signs of aging.
Dehydration not only makes you feel terrible, but it makes your skin look dull and lifeless. And after a good night sleep, you need to replenish your fluency. What we suggest is take a warm glass of water, squeeze the fresh lemon juice which adds vitamin C and maintains the collagen production. This also adds your glow back to your skin.
5. Move your body
Exercising in the morning pumps up your adrenaline, gives you more energy, oxygenates your cells and adds radiance to your skin. Studies have shown that people who exercise in the morning sleep much better at night. And after a good night sleep, it really shows on your face. So try and work in or work out in your AM schedule.
6. Mist your face
Keep a can of mineral water in your fridge and spray your face the first thing in the morning. Your skin will look fresh and you will look brighter and more awake. The chilly water will also reduce that morning puffiness.
7. Drink green tea
If you need that dose of caffeine in the morning, get it from a cup of green tea. It’s packed with flavonoids which are antioxidants that slow down the aging process and reduces cell damage. But if you can’t do that without your morning cup of coffee, don’t worry about it. Coffee also has some amount of anti-oxidants and it is shown to speed up metabolism. But what I recommend is instead of having that second cup of coffee, go for that green tea.
So rise and shine with these seven beauty habits and you will see the benefits within a week.
