Working Towards a Healthy Summer Complexion: 5 Expert Tips & Tricks

Skin that exudes vibrant health and vitality needs very little make up and effort to look fabulous. It glows from within. In fact, healthy skin is firm, well-hydrated, even-toned and shows few signs of sun-damage and premature aging.

You probably already know that to look like a picture of health requires taking good care of yourself. Easier said than done you say? That’s because our hectic lives can make us inadvertently fall into a routine that can leave our complexion looking tired, dull and lackluster.

Luckily our skin cells regenerate every 27 days! Follow these 10 expert tips and tricks to whip your skin into tip top shape and enjoy a healthy summer complexion.

Drink Water First Thing in the Morning

Make a habit of drinking a tall glass of water first thing when you wake up. After three weeks you’ll notice not only beautifully hydrated skin but more energy and better digestion. Continue to drink either water or herbal tea throughout the day. Coffee or alcoholic beverages don’t count because they actually dehydrate your body and your skin.

Consume Healthy Fats

Your skin can’t look healthy without beneficial fats and oils in your diet. That’s because skin cells have a fatty layer (called a phospholipid barrier) that’s necessary to function, regenerate and repair. Make sure you’re getting plenty of avocado, nuts and seeds in your diet to maintain a healthy cell wall.

Have you Heard of Volite Skin Hydrators?

These are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers designed to boost your complexion. Your physician injects them in tiny amounts all over your face to give your skin a healthy glow. Making positive lifestyle changes can take several weeks or months to notice. Until then, ‘fake it til you make it’ with Skin Hydrators, which attract water molecules to plump and smooth your skin from the inside.

Do This Kind of Exercise

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is the most talked about exercise right now and for good reason. It has valid science backing up claims that it stimulates Human Growth Hormone (HGH). In fact, it’s purported to boost HGH by 700% each time you perform this HIIT. HGH is responsible for keeping your skin firm, supple and youthful. For best results incorporate 20 minutes of HIIT exercise 3-5 times per week.

Quality and Quantity of Sleep Matters

Being deprived of quality sleep can literally rob your skin of its health and make you look older. Not getting enough hours of deep slumber can stimulate the production of the stress hormone cortisol which is really bad news for skin. It has been implicated in premature aging and inflammatory conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.
