There are three factors that directly affect the health of your skin. They are the foods you eat, your level of stress, and the products you use to care for your skin. If you are experiencing dry or troubled skin, you may want to begin looking at those three things as they apply to your personal situation.
First, are you eating the right foods? You don’t have to be on some special diet to have great skin, but it’s important to not indulge in processed foods too often and consume a balance of protein, vegetables and fruits, and the right kinds of carbs. This can have a wonderful impact on your skin. If you want to go the extra mile, eat plenty of foods that have probiotics because they definitely contribute to glowing, healthy skin.
Next, how is your stress level? If you rank it high, please know you are not alone. The American Psychological Association reports that in the last twelve months, millions of people are enduring stress levels they’ve never had before. “When considering the physical and emotional toll of increased stress, nearly half of adults (49%) report their behavior has been negatively affected.” But, there is hope and relief. If you are experiencing unusual levels of stress, try to maintain a regular skincare routine. We know exercise is keying combatting stress, and so is focusing on the blessings you have despite the challenges. I also recommend focusing on what you can control and leaving the rest to God.
Finally, if you are reading this article, it’s quite likely you are using products that are good for your skin. Kudos! That makes an incredible difference! Facials are always a perfect way to boost your skin during the dry winter months, but, many women don’t take the time to go to the spa or salon for a facial and let’s face it, that can be expensive these days. So, I’d like to tell you about another super product that is perfect for the winter months because it leaves your skin looking clean, bright, and glowing: Magnolia Skin Essentials’ Fresh Magnolia Glow Stick.
