With most of the COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in Singapore, many of us find ourselves having to return to our physical workplaces and readjusting to our indoor or outdoor working environment. Unlike previous work-from-home arrangements, being out and about inevitably exposes our skin to the harsh climate and humidity. Here are 7 tips to help you care for your skin and regain that healthy glow::
1. Eat Healthy
Beautiful skin starts from within. If you want healthy, glowing skin, you need to adopt a balanced diet consisting of foods that are rich in antioxidants, collagens, and the right vitamins. This means fruits and vegetables are a must! Foods rich in collagen such as fish, chicken, and egg whites should also be consumed on a regular basis if you want to give your skin that refreshing, youthful look.
But with all the daily hustle and bustle,, it can get rather difficult to incorporate all the required vitamins and collagen into your diet. This is where supplements such as Japanese collagen drinks and vitamins for glowing skin can come in extremely handy.
We’ll go into that later on in this article.
2. Use Sunscreen
You also want to make sure you’re protecting your skin with sunscreen each time you leave your house. UV rays from the sun can damage your skin, causing visible signs of aging as an unwanted result. Applying sunscreen or SPF products in general can help protect your skin from these harmful UV rays, so make sure you do your due diligence especially during this period of unusually hot and humid weather.
3. Adopt a Cleansing Routine
Too much washing of your skin can also rob it of its moisture, causing your pores to produce extra oil that results in oily skin. To prevent this, make sure your cleansing routine is effective such that you won’t have to over-wash. An effective cleansing routine should consist of the following steps:
- Washing your face with a suitable cleanser
- Applying toner, serum and eye cream
- Spot treating blemishes
- Applying retinoid or face oil
- Applying sunscreen if heading out
4. Hydrate Yourself
Drinking more water helps your body clear out toxins that can cause inflammation and blemishes, while also assisting the transportation of nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells. This effectively slows down the aging process of your skin, allowing for a younger, healthier glow. We recommend drinking at least two liters of water per day for best results.
5. Cooler Showers
While a warm shower may feel good, it can strip away natural oil and healthy glow from your skin and leave it looking tired and dull.. In fact, too warm a shower may even result in mild burns and damaged skin cells that can cause slight flushing and ruddiness.
Try to take cooler showers, or at least limit your hot showers to no more than 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can also try slowly turning down the heat as you bathe, and finish off your shower with refreshingly cold water.
6. Rest More
Stress can impact your skin in a number of negative ways, including raising inflammation levels, decreasing blood flow to skin cells, and delaying the healing of micro and macro skin injuries. Making time to get more quality rest and reduce your stress levels can do wonders for your skin. Getting enough sleep is also important to achieve healthy, glowing skin; at least 7 hours per night is a good start..
7. Take Supplements
As previously mentioned, healthy, glowing skin starts from within. Your skin needs lots of antioxidants, vitamins, and collagen in order to be the best it can be. However, trying to include all that into your diet can be extremely challenging and, at times, outright impossible — that is, at least, without the use of supplements.
Beauty supplements can complement your lifestyle habits and give your body the boost it needs to achieve healthy, glowing skin. Japanese supplements are known to work wonders for the skin. Collagen, vitamin B, vitamin C — are available at Sato Pharmaceuticals in the form of either pills, tablets or drinks that come straight from Japan.
