If you’re not happy with how your skin is looking – maybe you can’t get rid of those spots, or you’re suffering from hyperpigmentation in the skin – don’t worry, there is always a solution, you just need to find the right one that works for you.
Here are some of the best tips and recommendations when it comes to improving your overall complexion.
Keep your stress levels down
Stress can affect the body in so many different ways, not only mentally but physically too. It can give you spots, make your skin oilier, and make you look and feel generally run down. So do all you can to relieve yourself from feeling like this. Focus on your breathing, do some exercises to release endorphins, and even try meditating. Anything that you enjoy, whether that be writing, drawing, or listening to music – do it. Your face will thank you for it.
Drink green tea
Green tea has tons of different benefits when it comes to your health, so much so that it has been said that the antioxidants can even help to prevent diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular problems. If you have a complexion that is uneven with red blotches, the anti-inflammatory that is found in the tea can be very soothing. Iced is better than drinking it hot because heat is known for worsening redness in the skin. It can also keep the collagen in your skin which is what prevents you from getting wrinkles, and that is thanks to the epigallocatechin gallate.
Improve the air quality you’re breathing
You may be wondering how you can do this yourself, but it’s very easy. First of all, if you’re a smoker – quit. Secondly, if you’re around smokers a lot – avoid them. Just putting yourself around the smoke can make your body release free radicals, and these are the bad chemicals that damage your skin and make you age a lot quicker. Other bad air includes pollution, a bad air filter in your home that needs to be changed, and even cooking your food with oil. Dry air within the home can also be tough on your skin as it will dry it out, and any lines you have will look deeper than they are. Consider running a humidifier in your bedroom and living room to help minimize these issues.
Sometimes no matter how good the creams and products are, it just can’t get rid of the bad history that you had in the past, and in that case, maybe a cosmetic treatment may be the best option for you. With technology being so advanced nowadays, there are treatments such as the co2 laser treatment for acne scars, that are able to remove old scaring that you may have which was caused from extreme acne in the past. This is done by deeply penetrating the skin removing the outer layer (like the skin of an onion) and will then tighten everything that will essentially pull out any scaring.
