Healthy skin is a big deal
Your skin is the largest organ in your body, protecting you from diseases, helping to rid your body of toxins, helping to regulate your body temperature, and acting as a filter.
Neglecting your skin can encourage rashes, sores, wrinkles, and of course, acne. Unhealthy skin is also more vulnerable to diseases and infections, and is more likely to scar after an injury. If you experience skin issues, such as acne, psoriasis, or skin allergies, proper skincare is even more important.
Having great healthy skin will help boost your confidence. Everyone wants to look and feel their best, but it’s hard to feel your best when you’re dealing with a dreaded breakout!
So, what can you do to help keep your skin healthy, nourished and clear?
1. Start with your inner health
Your skin is constantly growing, so keep it hydrated by drinking plenty of water, maintaining a balanced diet full of vitamins and minerals, fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.
2. Always wear sunblock
Make sure you skin is protected if you are heading outside. Sunscreen is one of the most important ways we can help protect our skin from the damaging ultraviolet (UV) light when outside. And, interestingly enough, it’s still the only class of active ingredients that the US FDA will allow anti-aging claims to be made on products!
3. Commit to a proper skincare routine
Radiant, healthy and hydrated skin starts with a great daily skincare routine, and the EPIOLOGY 3-step system is one of the best ways you can soothe, smooth and nourish your skin.
Start with the Pre-wash Cleanser to prevent the spread of bacteria, remove oil and leave skin clean and smooth. Avoid using hot water when you wash your face as it can suck the moisture out of your skin. Use warm or cold water instead.
Next, nourish and hydrate your skin with the EPIOLOGY cream, clinically proven to prevent acne, improve skin clarity and reduce redness leaving skin soft, nourished and hydrated. Apply the cream within a few minutes of using the pre-wash cleanser to retain the skin’s natural moisture and provide a healthy skin barrier.
If you need to tackle those dreaded spots, use our extra strength spot gel, a double strength powerful gel formula that penetrates deeply to prevent formation of pimples and reduce scarring. This stuff works!
For the best results, complete this routine two to three times each day. Consistency is key!
As Colin mentioned last month, stress can have a huge impact on your skin. Try to de-stress by spending time on a hobby, sport or leisure activity, or make some time to catch up with friends and family. You could even treat yourself to a relaxing facial!
