What Everyone Needs for Healthier Skin

Healthy skin. It’s something that most people want, but sometimes attaining the goal can be a bit elusive. Besides consulting a medical professional, what are some key steps you can take in your journey towards healthy skin? There are a lot of tips out there for achieving your best skin, but here are a few basics.

A Skincare Routine

The first step towards healthy skin is establishing a routine. Why do you need a good skincare routine? Having a solid skincare routine will help you to establish a pattern of consistency for your skin. If you don’t know at all where to start, try beginning with a basic cleanser, toner, and moisturizer.

You should try to wash your face twice a day – once in the morning and once at night. Begin with your cleanser and when done, follow up by dabbing on your toner. Once your skin is completely dry, put on your moisturizer. As you become more established in your skincare routines, you can try adding in extra steps such as a nighttime eye cream or moisture mask.

Nutrient-Rich Foods

Eating healthy food is a good part of attaining healthy-looking skin. Your skin needs your incoming vitamins and minerals just as much as your muscles, joints, and organs do. But what vitamins and minerals does skin need, exactly? You’ve probably heard a lot about collagen if you’ve been researching skincare. 

Your body has more collagen than any other protein. Collagen makes up 30% of your body’s proteins and up to 80% of the protein in your skin. In addition to taking collagen supplements, you can also try eating foods rich in collagen. These are mostly meats, such as chicken, fish, pork, or beef.

Customized Products

After you’ve established your skincare routine, it will probably become worthwhile to revamp the products you’re using and swap them out for others that are more targeted to your specific skin care needs. If, for example, you notice that your skin tends to be drier, you may want to switch your face wash to a more moisturizing cleanser. Similarly, if your skin tends to be oily and you’re noticing breakouts, it could be a sign that the moisturizer you’re using is too heavy.

Likely you’ll need to play around with the products you’re using to find a good balance to help you achieve your best skin.

Establishing a good skincare routine is vital in the pursuit of healthy skin. And also consider taking supplements and tailoring the products you use to your specific skin care needs.
