With so many skincare and beauty products to choose from these days, our daily routine for applying products is getting more and more complicated. So, what is really the best approach to achieving healthy glowing skin? Read on for our tips for keeping your skin healthy and strong.
1. Drink Plenty Of Water
While drinking water doesn't directly impact the hydration of your skin, it does benefit your skin. Your body requires proper hydration in order to function properly. Drinking at least 8 glasses a day can help minimize inflammation and flush out unwanted toxins. Water is also essential to the production of structural proteins such as collagen and elastin, which keep your skin elastic and strong!
2. Avoid Too Much Direct Sun Exposure
Spending long hours in the sun can cause premature aging, sun spots and wrinkles. In order to prevent skin damage, we encourage you to cover up and avoid going outdoors during peek sun hours. If you have experienced too much sun, make sure to give your skin the nourishment it needs as soon as possible with natural and organic ingredients like cooling aloe vera, olive oil and honey, which you can find in the After Sun Face & Body Lotion.
3. Get Moving!
As much as it feels good to be lazy, sitting for hours can promote bloating, puffiness, acne, cellulite, and overall loss of muscle tone. It is important that you have a 30-minute dose of moderately vigorous exercise daily. Once you start to sweat, you allow your pores to open, which aids in the elimination of chemicals and heavy metals from the skin!
What goes in your body is just as important as what goes on your skin. Smoking, drinking alcohol and indulging in sugar all cause inflammation and dehydration of the skin. It is best to avoid all of these if possible.
We recommend using an organic, all-natural moisturizer daily to keep skin moisturized and protected. Our Honey Girl Organics Face & Eye Crème uses all-natural organic beehive ingredients together with organic olive oil, to ensure healthy looking skin all day, every day. If your skin needs some extra radiance and protection, a face serum our Honey Glo Regenerating Face Serum can penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin to help with cell regeneration. We recommend moisturizing your body as well, and these/HGO targeted body products are organic, all natural and beneficial for the skin.
6. Cleanse & 7. Exfoliate
The best way to keep your skin free of toxins is to cleanse your skin twice a day. At night time, we recommend the use of the oil-based Facial Cleanser & Makeup Remover to get rid of makeup, dirt and particles that have built up on your skin throughout the day. In the morning, it's important to start your day fresh with a mild cleanser (HGO Foaming Wash or Facial Cleanser/MakeupRemover ) to wash off any remaining dead skin cells before following up with a moisturizer like Face & Eye Cream, Matte, et al.
Once to twice a week, we recommend to exfoliating your skin with an all-natural and mild exfoliator like Honey Girl's Facial Scrub. It gently exfoliates, cleanses, and removes dead skin cells, while leaving your skin moisturized. You can also use the Rejuvenating Mask for double-duty exfoliation and masking. This mask gently exfoliates and when left on your skin for 10-30 minutes, helps draw out stubborn impurities.
In order for our body and organs to function at their best, we all need at least 7 hours of quality sleep every night. We can help our biggest organ - our skin - recover while we sleep with a rich and moisturizing Night Crème. Honey Girl Organics’ Night Cream repairs and heals with organic ingredients like honey and royal jelly. It will help lighten dark spots and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. You will wake up to fresher and younger looking skin!
