Three Ways to Have Better Skin for Free
I have three rules for improving the quality of my skin - where if I follow them - it doesn't really matter so much about the products I'm using. When I was a full time undergrad student, I was really great at being consistent. These days I struggle with it a bit, but deep down I know if I can just stick to these rules, my skin will be okay.
Some people might argue that this first rule doesn't really work for them, in fact it might even cause more breakouts! But really, I think it just depends on the person.
Exercise. The sweaty kind.
Your pores open up during the process of sweating, which allows nasties to exit your body - that would otherwise clog your pores. It's the same way that steaming your skin is a great way to cleanse, opening up the pores. I'd love to hear about your experience with this!
Drinking loads of water.
The thing about upping your water intake is you can't really achieve good results over night - I think it takes a good week to be able to consume two litres comfortably if you've been consuming a lot less...mostly becuase initially your body isn't ready and you just pee it all out (again, just from my experience).
Loads of sleep.
If you're doing this already you can call me Captain Obvious - but I'm constantly surprised by the number of people I meet who complain about the quality of their skin and burn the candle at both ends. I always notice that my pores seem smaller after a good nights sleep. Get 8 hours, your skin will thank you.
I hope this helped some of you improve your skin for the future! 😊 x
