Why Some Women Have Glowing Skin

You have seen them, those women who always seem to have the sun shining on their faces. How do that get that look? What special things do they know about skincare that makes them look so good? Here are their secrets.

They Protect Their Skin

Skin protection includes two important areas. The first area is insuring that the skin has enough moisturizers and nutrients to be healthy and elastic. Great skin care companies like Jeunesse have researched this area extensively and developed amazing products that address the needs of the skin at the cellular level, to give you glowing skin. The second area is protecting your skin from the sun, and for this, you need to always wear a sunscreen when you are out in the sun.

They Get Plenty of Rest

In the pantheon of things you can do to look your best, consistently getting enough rest is right at the top. In fact, without getting the proper amount of rest, it is virtually impossible to have your skin look great. Adults should always aim to 6-8 hours of sleep every day with no exceptions. This amount of sleep gives the body the chance to rest, recharge and repair itself and it gives the body the chance to create growth hormones that keep your skin supple and more elastic.

We each only have so much energy to work with throughout the day, and if you have too little of it, things that are not vital will be energy neglected. This includes things like skin repair. In addition, when you are fatigued, your body releases a hormone called cortisol that can damage your skin. This combined with your looking drawn from not enough rest will leave your skin dull and causes other things like puffy eyes.

They Exercise

Exercise might be the ultimate activity for creating glowing skin. Exercise helps circulate important nutrients and oxygen throughout your body ensuring that the ones you need get to the places that need them most. It also ramps up collagen production in the body. Collagen is a frontline soldier in the battle against dull skin. This key protein is found in our muscles and bones, and gives our skin strength and elasticity, along with replacing dead upper level skin cells.

Exercise also prevents damage from free radicals in the body, which can damage skin and make you look older. It helps you sleep longer and deeper and as importantly, it helps reduce stress that causes aging puffiness, and deep lines on the face. Finally exercise increases the levels of human growth hormone (HGH) in the body, which makes you look more youthful and aids in better sleep.

They Hydrate

The glow you see on many women’s skin may be mostly attributable to one thing: drinking lots of clean water every day. Water is our lifeblood and aids in all proper functioning of the body’s systems. It is important for cell function and in the elasticity of our veins and arteries allowing them to move more blood to all areas of the body including the surface of the skin. This creates a beautiful glow that is certainly eye catching. In addition, water improves the elasticity of the skin and helps with skin repair. There is not a more important thing you can do to get a great glow than to drink lots of water.
