5 Ways to Improve Your Skin

There are countless assaults on your skin day in and day out. They come from all directions keeping your skin from looking its best. Pollution, sun exposure, toxins, pesticides, poor diet, lack of sleep, and stress love nothing better than to cause harm to your skin. These damaging culprits produce free radicals that steal neurons from healthy cells leaving a path of destruction in their wake.
There are things you can do in your own home that will greatly improve the appearance of your skin and help prevent further damage.
1. Protect your Skin Daily
Protecting your skin every single day with an SPF of at least 30 will help to keep the sun from damaging and aging your skin. It’s a very important step that can often be overlooked, especially on cloudy days. But, believe it or not, you still need to wear sunscreen even on cloudy days. The sun can sneak through clouds and windows exposing your skin to great risk.
2. Topical Antioxidants
Products containing antioxidants such as green tea, pomegranate, acai, vitamin C, and vitamin E will help keep free radicals from attacking your cells. These ingredients will also work to nourish and strengthen your cells promoting a more beautiful complexion.
3. Exfoliate
Exfoliating your skin regularly is a crucial step in obtaining smoother and more vibrant skin. Using a scrub, peel, or mask 2-3 times a week will remove dead skin, dirt, and debris that can build up on the surface of your skin resulting in dull and lifeless skin. Thorough exfoliation will also increase cellular turnover and will allow your other skin care products to work more effectively.
4. LED Light Therapy
LED (light emitting diodes) light therapy actually helps to repair damage that has already occurred. Specific wavelengths have the ability to drench your cells with reparative properties. The wavelengths penetrate deep into the layers of your skin where they almost miraculously repair, heal, renew, regenerate, and rejuvenate. LED light therapy doesn’t stop there, it goes on to stimulate collagen and elastin production which assists in dramatically reducing wrinkles, pore size, and rough texture. This technology, once only available in professional offices, is now accessible in your own home making it convenient and simple to enjoy the benefits that light therapy has to offer.
5. Consume Antioxidants
Foods rich in antioxidants including fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and beans fight free radicals from the inside. These powerful antioxidants scavenge and destroy destructive free radicals keeping them from wreaking havoc on your cells.
