10 Lifestyle Habits That Will Help You Glow

While having a consistent skincare routine is, other life factors can help look good on the outside and feel amazing on the inside.

Emilia Clark, or Halle Berry, and Zoe Saldana have revealed some of the lifestyle practices that help them maintain their radiant looks. It appears they all have something in common. They practice beauty holistically.

Sometimes skincare is not just about caring for your skin because there are various other contributing aspects. Looking at beauty and skincare holistically allows you to have that popping glow and the confidence to go with it. Here are ten habits to adopt to nurture an inside out glow:

Managing Stress

Stress is a part of life we can’t avoid but can certainly do our best to manage it before it manifests into burnout. Not only that, stress can show up on your face like acne, undereye bags, wrinkles, and dry skin, and beyond the superficial, it can affect your quality of life.

This goes hand-in-hand with managing stress levels before they become overwhelming. Do something every day that feels good for you. It doesn’t even have to take up hours of your day but remember that self-care is not selfish.

Pay Attention To Your Gut Health

Serena Poon, CN, CHC, CHN, chef, and nutritionist, highlights the connection between having an imbalanced gut microbiome and skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis to “The Thirty.”

Poon suggests that the best way to ensure a healthy gut microbiome is through prebiotic and probiotic-rich foods. That means including Kombucha, yogurt, and garlic.

Get Good Sleep

Many people go to bed but still wake up tired. That’s why a good night’s practice is ideal to reap the full benefits of your rest and combat dull skin. With that, make sure you wash your pillowcase regularly.

Ride Your Post Workout Glow

For one, you can ride your “post-workout-glow” for hours past the gym. But long-term, getting the blood circulating can help “deliver oxygen and nutrients to the skin,” says Dr. Marisa Garshick, a dermatologist based in New York City to “Insider.”

In addition to your glowy hours after a workout, Garshaik highlight that the increased blood flow “promotes collagen production, and promotes new skin cells which keep the skin looking glowing and is also helpful for anti-aging.” 

Hydrate

Our bodies thrive when their well moisturized; think of your hair and skin and how radiant they look after being in contact with moisture. Drink more water is a song that will never get old.

Avoid Habits That Are Holding Your Skin Back

Another song that’s been on repeat: ensure you’ve cleaned off your makeup before bed. Secondly, “Healthline” advises against persisted use of alcohol and drugs as they can exacerbate stress. Also avoid unnecessarily touching your face.

Consistent Skincare Regimen

Find the products and routines you like and stick with them. The most basic routine consists of a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen, but you can add treatment or serums and other products that you like to make your skincare enjoyable.
