The Surprising Secrets of People with Great Skin

12 May 2023

Who doesn’t want a complexion that turns heads? While good genes certainly help, there’s more to it than luck. The truth is, people with great skin have smart habits that give them that enviable glow. In this article, we’ll unveil the top five habits of those skin-savvy individuals, with a little twist thrown in—monthly facials as their secret weapon.

1. The Cleansing Connoisseurs:

Clear skin starts with a clean canvas, and these skincare wizards have mastered the art of consistent cleansing, whisking away the day’s grime with a gentle touch. But it’s not just about removing surface dirt—it turns out that consistent cleansing also helps maintain a healthy skin barrier. According to a study published in Dermatologic Therapy, choosing mild cleansers and avoiding harsh cleansing methods can enhance the skin’s natural protective properties, reducing the risk of irritation and inflammation.

2. Hydration Heroes:

These skin superheroes understand the power of hydration from within. They guzzle water like a secret elixir and slather on hydrating potions and lotions, sealing in moisture like it’s their skincare superpower. Studies published in Dermatologic Therapy and Clinical Medicine & Research demonstrate that adequate hydration supports skin elasticity, promotes a smoother appearance, and improves overall skin function.

3. Sunscreen Saviours:

The sun can be a tricky adversary, but these savvy individuals are committed to sun protection. Numerous studies have shown the detrimental effects of prolonged sun exposure on the skin, including premature ageing and an increased risk of skin cancer. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, regular use of broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher protects the skin against harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Research has demonstrated that consistent sunscreen use can help prevent photoageing and reduce the risk of developing skin cancers.

4. Nutritional Ninjas:

Eating your way to great skin is not just a myth—it’s supported by scientific research. A well-balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains provides essential nutrients that contribute to skin health. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition highlighted the benefits of a diet rich in vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, and other antioxidants for maintaining healthy skin and reducing the risk of age-related skin damage.

5. Monthly Facial Fanatics:

Skin lovers have a secret they vouch for—monthly facials!

It’s more than a luxurious indulgence; scientific evidence supports its effectiveness. Professional facials involving deep cleansing, exfoliation, and targeted treatments, can enhance skin texture, hydration, and overall appearance. The skill of skincare professionals, along with specialised products and techniques, can provide improved results beyond regular at-home skincare routines. Besides, monthly facials offer luxurious “me” time, providing invaluable rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation.
