Follow These Skin Care Tips for a Healthy Glow!

Getting glowing skin isn’t as hard as you think! Don’t be tricked into purchasing a zillion different products that are more likely to help you break out than achieve your glow goals. 

The best way to get that radiant glow is to meet with a skin care professional and develop a personalized regimen that works for you. In the meantime, there are little things you can do every day to keep your skin as healthy and beautiful as possible. 

Read on for three skin care tips guaranteed to get you on the fast track to the results you’ve been dreaming of.

Protect Yourself from the Sun

As much as we love warm, sunny days, the sun can be your skin’s #1 enemy. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, unprotected exposure to UV rays “damages the DNA in skin cells, producing genetic defects, or mutations, that can lead to skin cancer,” as well as premature aging. To protect your skin from sun damage, work on upping protection in several different ways: 

SPF

Using high-SPF products, like sunscreen and moisturizers, should be an essential part of your morning routine. Get into the habit of applying high SPF products, even if you are planning on a day inside. We love Coola’s line of luxury sun care products. Coola products achieve clinically tested, broad spectrum and anti-oxidant-rich protection while using fewer traditional (chemical) actives.

Hats & Sunglasses

– Wide brimmed hats and polarized sunglasses are also great ways to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Your skin and your style will benefit from both of these things!

Invest in the Right Skin Care Products

You might feel the urge to arm yourself with a defense arsenal against acne, dryness, and oil, but using too many skin care products might end up doing more harm than good. Instead of loading up on products, invest in the right ones for your skin type. Everyone’s skin is different, meaning no skin care routine is going to be the same. 

Here at Elements on the Plaza, our skin care experts can help you craft a daily regimen to ensure you are using the right products to achieve the best results. We offer two excellent lines, Image Skin Care and Sorella Apothecary with a full range of solutions to give your skin exactly what it craves.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking water is an essential part of your skin care routine! Make a habit of drinking at least eight glasses a day. If you are not drinking enough water, the cells that make up your skin will not live up to their full potential. Dehydrated skin cells might result in dry, flaky, and wrinkled skin. Stay radiant and firm by drinking your daily dose of H2o. 

Not only is drinking water an important way to keep your skin hydrated, using a hydrating product – like Sorella Apothecary’s Daily Green Moisturizer – will help add and hold moisture in your skin. This ultra-light daily moisturizer absorbs excess oil and hydrates without clogging pores.
