5 Easy Tips For Healthy Skin & Healthy Brows
Finding it hard to keep on top of all your different beauty routines? With an almost unlimited range of beauty products and skin treatments out there, it’s easy for things to get a little complicated. Morning routines, nighttime routines — keeping your skin, hair, brows and lashes healthy shouldn’t be stressing you out!
That’s why The Beauty & Brow Parlour offers you 5 easy tips to remember at all times. A few simple steps that, if followed, will allow you to look and feel your best all the time.
1. Keep Hydrated At All Times
The effect of dehydration on your body cannot be overstated. Our bodies require water to perform basic functions as well as to look beautiful. Made up of three layers: epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissue, your skin is a large and complex organ. Ensuring that you’re drinking enough water (at least 2 litres a day) will help keep the outer epidermis layer of your skin soft, smooth, elastic and wrinkle-free.
2. Wear Sunscreen (Even In Winter!)
One of the best and easiest ways to prevent premature ageing is the regular use of sunscreen. Creating a layer between your skin and the harsh rays of the sun, sunscreen absorbs the harmful UV rays that we’re exposed to every day. Even on days that don’t appear obviously hot, these UV rays can still cause damage to our skin. Accelerating the breakdown of collagen and leading to wrinkled, dry skin, there’s a lot of damage that can be done by the sun. Regular sunscreen is particularly important here in Australia, where we have some of the highest UV levels in the world.
3. Eat A Healthy, Balanced Diet
This one’s pretty obvious, right? Eating the right foods has a huge impact on every single part of our body — and our minds! It’s important to still indulge on the odd occasion, but there needs to be a limit. Consuming a diet that’s full of processed foods that are high in sugar and fat can cause acne, inflammation and a variety of other skin irritations. It’s also important for the health of your hair — which includes your eyebrows. Eating a varied diet rich in fruits and vegetables will allow you to naturally receive all the vitamins and minerals you need to keep your brow hair looking and feeling healthy.
4. Exercise Regularly
With the weather finally starting to warm up, there’s no better time to get out and about. Regular exercise (which can even just be a walk around the neighbourhood) naturally increases your blood flow. This allows oxygen to travel to your skin cells and all around your body. Increased blood flow will not only nourish your skin cells but can also help to remove harmful toxins from your skin, which aids in the ageing process.
5. Avoid Stress
Finally, the most important step of all is to avoid stress. Easier said than done — we know! But, both chronic and acute stress can have severe effects on your entire body. Not only can stress and anxiety causes a range of issues for your skin and hair, but can also act to exacerbate any pre-existing conditions. Anyone who suffers from conditions like acne, eczema or hair loss will understand just how much of an impact stress can have.
The good thing is, following all of the previous steps will help to reduce stress in your life. You can also choose to engage in some sort of regular meditation. This can be anything that works for you, ranging from a structured yoga class to simply reading a book in a quiet, peaceful place.
