At certain points in life anyone can feel a little down in the dumps and not feel like the usual superwomen or superman they usually are. The pile of washing getting you down? Don’t want to walk home from work in the rain? Is your skin looking and feeling a little bit worse for wear? Maybe you aren’t Monday mornings biggest fan…

While you may feel like it’s all doom and gloom, there are certain aspects of your life you can easily alter to make you feel wonderful in every way. While these are simple things, they are effective in helping your skin glow, your body feel healthier and your outlook on life to become larger than life itself.  After all, who doesn’t want to feel as fabulous as they look?

  1. Hydrate to Feel Great

While it may seem like a given, water is one of the main keys to unlocking super skin! While keeping to eight glasses is vital, considering the other ways you use the magic of water is also important.

Consider your water and tailor your skin care products accordingly. Did you know there’s two different types of water which effect your skin differently?

Whatever you do, drinking water is great for your overall health and aids in digestion, circulation, absorption and can help towards a radiant and healthy glow for your skin. No need to wait to do this one- why not go grab a glass and start on your 8 glasses?

  1. Vibrant Food to Match Your Mood

We all know that a balanced diet is best for your skin and general health, but by being a bit more adventurous with your food, your skin will feel fabulous and so will you!

Citrus fruits, red peppers, broccoli and strawberries have been proven to have the benefit of a smooth textures skin, whereas veggies which are dark orange/ red and leafy greens provide a fresher complexion. You can see what other colourful foods give your skin a boost here.

We tend to invest a lot of time and money in what we put on our face, but what about your diet?

  1. Take Ten, Get Your Zen

When resting, your skins repair mechanism swings into action and begins to rejuvenate and repair any problems.

Taking time to relax and putting your feet up reduces stress on your body, and your skin. Stress increases the body’s production of hormones such as cortisol which makes the skin much oilier as well as decreasing the ability to fight off any bacteria.

Instead of working late tonight or doing the washing, why not have an early night and read a few chapters of a book in bed instead of a late-night Netflix binge? We guarantee you will wake up feeling fabulous- and your skin will show it too!

  1. Forget the Chores, Get Outdoors

It has been proven that Vitamin D from getting outdoors helps your skin to glow! The body’s best source of this fabulous vitamin is from direct sunlight, so try to get at least 15 minutes a day.

Whether it be a pleasant stroll, walking to the shop instead of driving or even a brisk jog, getting outdoors not only makes you and your skin feel and look much better, but it has many other benefits such as helping you to sleep, reducing stress levels, improving memory, increasing energy and boosting your immune system.

All these factors link together to form a happier, healthier you, and a more youthful and glowing skin condition. A simple change but a fabulous one!

  1. Have Some Grace, Love Your Face

Your natural skin and complexion is all yours. No one else has the same pigmentation as you. You are 100% genetically unique in every factor about you. This is just one reason why you should love it in every way.

Don’t ever forget that it is your skin, your face and your body. Spend the time, money and energy on it how you want it to feel and look. It’s important to do what makes you feel happy and healthy, however, if you follow a few of these steps and treat yourself with care, your skin is sure to reflect the results.
