Embracing the Feel Good Skin Lifestyle

Embracing the Feel Good Skin Lifestyle

Take it from someone who has fought acne for most of her teen years—the road to clear, glowing skin is a long one. It took me around 10 years, multiple skincare products, and numerous diet changes to understand that there is no shortcut. Skincare doesn’t follow a one-size-fits-all motto; it depends on several factors that depend on you.

For me, it all started with the rise of hormonal acne around my teens. The hormonal imbalance resulted in tiny whiteheads and blackheads on my T-Zone and a couple of pimples on my cheeks. Once my hormones came to their senses and got their act together, I was acne-free for a brief period—until it came back in the form of cystic acne across my cheeks, forehead, jawline, and chin. I won’t lie; this wasn’t just physically painful, but emotionally draining.

From falling prey to marketing gimmicks (btw, nothing can dry out a pimple overnight) to slathering on home remedies to even cutting out foods I loved, I tried it all! I didn’t look at treating my skin holistically and I wasn’t patient. Great, healthy skin needs to be treated with care both inside and out, which makes it more of a lifestyle choice than just applying some products and calling it a day.

So, what is the ‘Feel Good Skin’ lifestyle? Read on to know more.

How to Approach Skincare More Holistically?

1 - Watch Your Diet 

By now, we all know you are what you eat, and that stands true for your skin too! One thing I noticed that was a trigger for my breakouts was my poor diet. A lot of food is high in sodium, sugar, or dairy, which makes it unhealthy for your skin. Sugar breaks down your collagen, causing your skin to lose its elasticity and heal slower. Deep-fried foods that contain a lot of vegetable oil trigger inflammatory hormones that cause acne to worsen. Watching my diet allowed me to find out one of my biggest acne triggers.

Your diet is the ultimate source of many vitamins, minerals, and proteins that are essential for general wellbeing, including your skin’s! Therefore, consuming foods that are rich in vitamins A, C, D, E, and K, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants, are really necessary! 

For an extra boost, you could try our Beautywise Advance Collagen. This supplement is packed with skin-loving ingredients like Glutathione, Hyaluronic Acid, Biotin, Vitamin C, etc., to promote skin, hair and nail health.

2 - Follow A Skincare Routine

Treating your skin topically is also important when trying to maintain its health. Our skin goes through a lot, especially with environmental aggressors like pollution, dirt, and UV exposure. Hence, you require a little treatment and protection from the outside world too!

You don’t have to invest in a vanity kit full of products—stick to the basics, but follow a routine religiously.

3 - Exercise Away 

You might think I’m joking, but exercise is not only a great way to de-stress, but also helps improve your skin’s quality. It helps increase blood flow to your skin and keeps your skin cells nourished. Since stress can cause a lot of skincare issues too, exercise decreases the body’s increased hormonal and immune responses that cause it.

4 - Get Your Beauty Sleep 

Beauty sleep is a real thing! Getting your daily dose of 7-8 hours a night doesn’t just rest your body and mind, it helps your skin too. While you sleep, your body works through the night to repair itself, which reflects in your skin. During this time, it produces newer collagen which improves texture, leads to faster production of new skin cells and reduces signs of aging.

Skincare is more than what we see and topical products we apply! Our skin is the largest organ of our body and is a reflection of everything that’s happening inside. While it does react to external factors, it is super sensitive to internal factors as well. It’s your body’s tool for communicating issues occurring within, so keeping an eye out for the signs through your skin is imperative to understanding what may be happening inside.

By integrating Beautywise Advance Marine collagen into your routine, you’re not just supporting your skin externally but nourishing it from within. Embrace the ‘Feel Good Skin’ lifestyle and watch your skin transform into its healthiest, most radiant self!
