As much as you try to resist it, the inevitable signs of ageing find their way to your skin—fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, among many others—and often they are furthered by external factors such as excessive sun exposure, strong soaps, poor nutrition, etc.


Having said that, a holistic approach to achieving healthy, radiant skin is essential. Aside from your regular appointments to your aesthetic clinic in Singapore, committing to the lifestyle changes mentioned above is a must to maintain optimal skin health, the natural way.



1. Eat a balanced diet


Optimise your nutrition by eating a balanced diet that includes antioxidants from fruits and vegetables, healthy fats from fish and nuts, and other vitamins and minerals from other whole foods. Having a varied and balanced diet as such should give you the necessary amount of nutrients for radiant skin including vitamins A, C, and E, and zinc.


In this article, we look deeper into these and more natural ways to achieve better skin, as well as why staying devoted to them matters.



2. Keep stress in check


Stress takes a toll on almost every part of your body, including your skin. It can make your skin more sensitive and trigger severe acne breakouts. Therefore, to encourage healthy skin, you should take the necessary steps to manage stress and achieve a healthy state of mind. Get enough sleep, meditate, and make time to do the things you enjoy.



3. Quit smoking and drinking


Smoking makes your skin look older and paler; it depletes its sources of oxygen and nutrients essential to skin health. Alcohol, on the other hand, can cause inflammation or worsen skin conditions like acne and rosacea. It goes without saying that the best way to protect your skin is to quit smoking and drinking, altogether.



4. Treat your skin gently


What do harsh products have to do with ageing? A lot, actually. Your skin absorbs toxic chemicals which can strip oil from your skin, cause dryness, trigger acne, and ultimately speed up your skin ageing process. Therefore, to keep cleaning gentle, avoid using strong soaps, moisturise daily, and if possible, limit your shower time and use warm water.



5. Stay hydrated


When skin is well-hydrated, it looks healthier, plumper, and more vibrant, and is less prone to damage. It can also help fight oil and acne as well as keep your skin from looking dry, flaky, and tight. Don’t be fooled, though. Coffee, tea, and sodas don’t count as water because they have caffeine—a diuretic that draws water out of your skin.



6. Protect yourself from the sun


Another essential step to taking care of your skin is to protect it from the harmful UV rays. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 15, avoid the sun when it’s at its strongest, and as often as possible, wear protective clothing: long-sleeved shirts, pants, and caps.



When Nature Meets Science: Skin Boosters


As earlier said, a holistic approach to skincare involves committing to a healthier lifestyle and of course, turning to aesthetic treatments to guarantee optimal results.


These days, a wide range of aesthetic treatments to boost skin health are easily within reach and these include the Rejuran Healer and Skin Boosters Vital in Singapore. The latter is designed to address problems such as sun damage, dehydration, and roughness in areas like the face, neck, décolletage, and back of the hands.
