1.STOP Taking Hot Showers
Taking a hot shower will deplete your skin of moisture. It will also make your skin irritable and prone to acne, psoriasis, and eczema. I love a scolding hot shower but I have slowly adjusted the temperature over time.
2. Dry Brushing
Dry brushing is my secret weapon to healthy skin. Dry brushing exfoliates the skin, allowing an all over healthy glow. It also diminishes the appearance of cellulite. You can get a dry brush at almost every grocery store or drugstore. You can also order one here.
3. Eat Healthy
This is an obvious tip but also the most important. I cannot stress enough how important it is to properly nourish your body. Many people are overfed but undernourished. Focus on eating whole foods to get your daily intake of fruits and vegetables.
4. Always Use Lotion After Showering
Even if you stop taking hot showers it is important to continue moisturizing your skin. I suggest putting lotion on immediately after your shower, while your skin is damp. By doing this you will lock in moisture. My favorite body lotion is Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Lotion.
5. Protect Your Skin
Everyone knows to use a sunscreen on your face to prevent sun spots an wrinkles, but it is equally as important to use sunscreen on your body. I suggest mixing sunscreen into your daytime body lotion. If you only focus on your face, at a certain age your face will still look young but the rest of your body will show your age. I personally love the smell of Coppertone, but if you don’t want to smell like sunscreen on a daily basis, I suggest trying Neutrogena Pure and Free.
