Jeune Skin Care Aestheticians

Of course eating the right foods, exercise and simply just taking time for yourself is very important, but there are others…

 

 

 

 

Get Plenty of Sleep

 

There really is such a thing as beauty rest! Since your skin repairs itself while you sleep, being sleep deprived can actually worsen the look of your skin by intensifying dark circles and puffiness around the eyes. Sleep deprivation can also lead to increased breakouts – or even slow down the healing of ones you have.

 

Remove Your Makeup Before Bed

 

Always remove your makeup before you go to bed. It is that very makeup, plus the dirt and oil that collect on the skin during the day, that increases the chance of breakouts.

 

Don't Smoke

 

It is a hard habit to kick, but it certainly takes its toll on your skin. Smoking not only reverses the skin's ability to heal, but it also lowers the blood supply to skin, reducing the production of collagen.

 

Exercise Regularly

 

The revitalizing and energizing effects of exercise certainly can show results in skin, too. Exercise increases circulation and reduces stress, and poor circulation and too much stress can also cause skin to lose its glow.

 

Eat Green Food

 

Skin can be a reflection of what we put into our bodies. Eating fruits and veggies that are loaded with antioxidants will encourage skin to repair itself, not to mention slow down the aging process in the skin.
