The lifespan of a skin cell is two to four weeks. Your skin is in a constant state of renewal, and it takes a minimum of six weeks for new skin cells to replace the old. Basically, the good things you do today will reveal luminous, show-stopping benefits months down the road. So don’t let your skin down!
Here are 3 fool-proof tips for boosting your skin’s radiance this holiday season. The time to start these habits is now!
Go to bed!
Beauty sleep is not a myth! Your body repairs itself while you’re sleeping, manufacturing new collagen, a powerhouse skin protein that makes skin plumper and less likely to wrinkle. According to an article from WebMD, getting only 5 hours of sleep a night can lead to twice as many fine lines as sleeping 7 would.
Befriend vitamin A.
This magical vitamin protects against UV damage and slows signs of aging by encouraging healthy skin cell production. Be sure to indulge in foods rich in vitamin A including orange and green, leafy veggies (e.g., spinach, sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe). Topical vitamin A in the form of retinol and retinoic acid can literally smooth wrinkles and combat signs of aging by boosting collagen production and strengthening skin. At AVIE!, we carry an extensive selection of products featuring vitamin A, including lines by Alastin® Skincare and SkinMedica®. We can help you find the perfect products for your skin during your consultation!
