SKINCARE TALK WITH BOLA AKINBOADE-BELLO : HOW TO ACHIEVE A FLAWLESS SKIN

No matter what age we are, we all want a flawless skin. Whatever we do will have an impact on our skin. You can have flawless skin  if you follow these steps.


EXERCISE
Exercising is not only to stay fit but also for healthy and glowing skin;helps you metabolize. Healthy skin is just another part of a healthy body.
Exercising is also good for relieving stress. Regular exercise will balance the stress-related hormones in your body which can delay the signs of aging and help in the production of collagen.
Sweating clears out your pores and relieves you from common problems like acne. After your workout is over, make sure you wipe your face with a fragrance-free cleansing wipe. Most importantly avoid exercising with makeup on.

DRINK MORE WATER
Drinking more water will have a positive impact on your skin and provide you with a radiant complexion.Try to drink 8 glasses of fluids, preferably water, every day! Avoid sugary soft drinks, caffeine, and coffee. 
All the cells in our body are made up of water. When these cells do not get an adequate amount of water, they become dry, flaky and more prone to wrinkles.
When the skin is hydrated properly, it will look plump and minimize the appearance of wrinkles.

SLEEP
Try and get 8 hours sleep every night. Being well rested gives your body more energy to go about its daily routine, and leaves you feeling even better. Flawless skin doesn't have big dark circles.
Do this every day, and you will soon begin to see the results.

EAT PROPERLY
More than half of what we eat directly nourishes our skin. So what we eat does affect how we look. A great menu is a balanced menu. Remember the food pyramid? Eat fruits and vegetables.
Avoid foods with caffeine and sugar, as well as greasy foods and red meat.
Dairy products can worsen hormonal imbalances and can aggravate skin problems such acne and pigmentation. So cut down dairy products and find other sources like spinach to get enough calcium intake. Plus, limit the consumption of white food as they have low nutritional value and can even shoot up your stress hormones

AVOID SMOKING AND 
Avoid smoking completely and limit your alcohol intake as well.

LIMIT YOUR CAFFEINE INTAKE
Caffeine is used by millions of people around the world to improve concentration and to relieve exhaustion. If you drink more than 4 cups of coffee a day, you may experience side effects such as nervousness, irritability, upset stomach, and muscle tremors.
Plus they interfere with your sleep and make you sleep deprived which can lead to other major problems like obesity, diabetes, anger, dark circles, and dehydrated complexion. And, the caffeine in coffee can dry out the skin. So no matter how much you moisturize, it can lead to dryness. So drink no more than 1 cup daily.

EXFOLIATE
Your skin protects you from dust and other external particles. Although most of the dead skin cells are shed by themselves, some remain on the skin which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. So you must exfoliate your skin regularly to discard those dead skin cells.
However, over exfoliating will also result in excessive dryness and redness. So do not exfoliate more than twice a week. 

MOISTURIZE
Moisturizing the skin is important as it makes the skin healthier. Moisturizing is necessary for Oily and Dry skin.
For Oily skin, look for moisturizers that are oil free. When purchasing a moisturizer look for ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin in not just lotions but also in cleansing bars, body washes, and even deodorants.

USE SUNSCREEN
Sunscreen will help block harmful UV-A and UV-B rays that can lead to skin damage and cancers. So get a broad spectrum sunscreen which will protect you from both the rays and the SPF factor can rate how well it can protect your skin.
Many moisturizers these days have sunscreen built into them. Experiment with different moisturizers to see if the sunscreen works well and the moisturizer keeps your face hydrated.
