Three things money can't buy for clear skin.
Not every product on your shelf can guarantee perfect and glowing skin. Achieving skin goals comes from much more than a simple product routine. Instead, we have to go deep to try and find the root of the problem and sometimes the most basic things are the most overlooked. Here are three things for youthful and clear skin that everyone needs.
Everyone knows about the benefits of exercise. HGH (human growth hormone) doesn’t need to come from an expensive bottle or face mask, but simply from working out. Studies have proven that HGH production increases up to 771 percent after just a 30 minute vigorous body workout. Physical activity increases hair growth, promotes stronger bones, improves skin repair and increases collagen production. Along with a great workout comes another clear skin factor - perspiration. Sweating boosts the immune system, clearing out the excess salt and cleans all the junk from inside our system. With this comes a drop in the skin’s PH scale, creating a more acidic environment so acne-causing bacteria cannot grow.
You may have heard that “no grease, no dairy, no sugar” will guarantee youthful skin. Some dairy products may actually be good, but sugar on the other hand is disastrous. Too much sugar can cause inflammation, stress, and can erupt the skin. All of these can damage DNA and collagen which results in wrinkles and fine lines. In most cases, people ranging from 15-30 tend to make their skin conditions worse by excessively eating sugar without thinking what it may be doing under the surface of the skin. A healthy and consistent diet of non-glycemic foods can lead to clearer and more healthy skin overall.
Studies have proven that the average human body needs seven to nine hours of sleep a night to ensure positive health. What does this have to do with skin? While we are off in our dreams, our skin gets to work clearing everything out in our body and ensuring water molecules end up where they need to be. Excess water is pushed out of the system, reducing puffy eyes or oily skin. Lack of sleep lowers our bodies circulation which causes red patches and makes it more sustainable for any infection or virus.
