Nutrition & lifestyle

Skin is always linked to nutrition and lifestyle so always keep in mind you need to look after yourself.
Several factors like your diet and the stress levels in your life will influence how your skin looks.
There are habits that can keep you looking fresh or ones that can cause premature skin aging and result in unhealthy skin.

Your friends: Veggies (your 5 a day, of course), fruits (packed with vitamins and minerals), green tea (rich in antioxidants), fish (age-fighting omega fatty acids).

Your foes: Smoking and alcohol are the first 2 things you need to eliminate or get rid of from your list. Countless studies have proven the real damage they can cause to skin and how aging they are.

Another huge topic is hydration: Keep yourself hydrated at all times for that glowy and plump look. Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day to be on the safe side (squeeze some lemon in if you want to make it tastier). Your skin will thank you later, trust me on this!

 Nighttime alert: Pillowcases! That sounds a bit strange to be linked to skin wellbeing, isn’t it? Well, let me just fill you in.
Sleeping with your face in the wrong position every night can lead to wrinkles in the long term. Moreover, it can make your skin break out. Keep in mind you always need to use superclean pillowcases since bacteria can spread quickly on your face during your sleep. Best pillowcases are the smooth and silky ones that can prevent fine lines from developing into wrinkles.
