Trivia time: what’s the largest organ your body has? No, it’s not the stomach or the lungs. In fact, the answer is your skin. As an organ, the skin does a lot. It protects our body, provides a sense of touch, and determines how quickly we age. But unfortunately, we can’t always choose our skin complexion.
Approximately one and four people have a skin condition, many of which affect complexion. Not everyone can have a glowing complexion right out of the box! Keep reading as we discuss how to brighten your complexion and have the glowing skin that you desire.
Eat Better to Brighten Skin Complexion
You are what you eat, and nowhere is this more apparent than on the skin. Pay attention to how your diet relates to breakouts and other issues that require skin products. It’s usually after you eat junk food or have lunch at McDonald’s. The best thing you can do for your skin is to eat well. Consume foods that are high in healthy fatty acids, antioxidants, and probiotics. Even better, reduce your alcohol intake. If you can’t avoid it, at least make sure to up your water intake while drinking.
Start a Skin Routine
Everybody and their dog these days has a skin routine, and for good reason. Using moisturizer, exfoliating skin products, and light serum will give you the glowing complexion you want. Make sure to be consistent with this routine. The best time for most people tends to be right after a shower. If you have the time and the willpower, you can do this when you wash your face before bed.
Don’t just wash your face with a bar of soap! As one of the most important skin care tips we can give, buy a cleanser. This helps to clear the dirt from your pores without being too abrasive.
Get Used to Wearing Sunscreen
UV rays can wreak havoc on your skin–and make it darker. This is literal radiation that a massive ball of gas (the sun) is blasting the earth with every second. There’s a reason people get very tan after just a day in the sun. Take a look at anyone who has gotten a lot of sun in their lifetime, and you will see the same thing. They have tons of wrinkles and often look much older than other people of their age.
Wear sunscreen anytime you go outside, even if the sun is not visible. You will thank us later. Your skin will get proper UV protection and age much slower–giving you a better complexion in return.
