All over America, staying in has been the new going out – this has been essential to prevent the spread of Covid-19. For many though, spending more time indoors has meant that they aren’t getting enough sunlight and natural Vitamin D to keep their skin looking fresh and healthy. With lockdown now easing, it is important for your skin to spend time outdoors in the fresh air. There are also lots of natural ways that you can get your skin looking beautiful, without the need for harsh chemicals or treatments.
Head to the sauna
The heat in the sauna promotes the production of collagen – this is the natural protein that gives our organs and tissues elasticity and strength. If you sit in the sauna, the heat not only helps to get rid of any dead skin cells, promoting the growth of new ones, but it also makes your skin firmer, rejuvenating the complexion. Sweating in a sauna is actually good for you too: it cleanses your glands and pores, flushing out impurities and toxins. As a result, your skin will be less prone to issues like pimples, blackheads and acne. The temperature of the sauna leads to better blood circulation, and this will give your skin a fresh and healthy appearance that glows. The heat also stimulates the sebaceous glands, helping to keep your skin lubricated and moisturized. After you have been in the sauna, give your skin a good scrub, and it will feel soft and beautiful for longer.
Have a facial
A facial is something that you can do at home, or you can visit the day spa for a relaxing, professional treatment. Industry experts Viva Day Spa recommend a hydrafacial for immediate results, a treatment that uses zero harmful chemicals. The first stage of a facial is cleaning your skin and removing any traces of makeup; this helps to open and unblock the pores. The facial massage then stimulates pressure points and increases your blood circulation, so that your skin cells can get all the nutrients and oxygen that they need to stay healthy. Exfoliation then helps to remove dead skin cells and encourage the production of new ones so that your skin develops a smooth texture without bumps – this is something that you can do at home with a good facial scrub.
Look after your skin at home
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in America – there are almost 10,000 people diagnosed every day. The majority of melanomas are caused by too much exposure to the sun. Whether it is summer or winter, always use sunscreen, especially if you have fair skin. Every time you wash your face, use a natural moisturizer – this will help to seal in moisture, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Finally the simplest way to revive your skin is to eat healthily and drink plenty of water.
Treating yourself to a visit to the day spa for a sauna and a facial will get your skin looking beautiful and glowing. You can maintain this by moisturizing, using sunscreen and looking after your body.
