Your skin takes a hit when you eat too much sugar. Food with high sugar can cause a decrease in antioxidant levels in the blood, which can cause a rise in free radicals and tissue damage.

If you do not drink enough water your skin will not be properly moisturized internally which can lead to dry and haggard looking skin. Not drinking enough water a day can also cause breakouts, chapped lips, dark undereye circles and more obvious wrinkles. Make sure to keep sipping for clear skin!

Alcohol-based products can harm your skin’s protective surface, deplete vital substances needed for healthy skin and make oily skin worse. Good thing there are a lot of options that use natural ingredients to make your skin look its best that are much less likely to cause any reactions – some of which are Simply Skin’s products.

Vital skin maintenance work takes place at night and sleeping with your make up on can actually hinder this important process. Plus! Sleeping with your makeup unwashed exposes your skin to free radicals that causes the breakdown of healthy collagen which leads to fine lines, dark circles under the eye and can clog your pores while you sleep, resulting in breakouts and patchy skin in the morning.

When done right, exfoliation is a rewarding skincare step to add to your routine – from removing dead skin cells to increasing blood circulation for a healthy and glowing skin! Proper exfoliation also helps reduce breakouts and acne, minimizes pores, etc. Who knew a gentle scrub could do such wonders to your skin?

How to Beat an Afternoon Beauty Slump
 
SS-Blog-Beauty-Slump-1.png

We’ve all experienced the dreaded afternoon slump, whether at the office or school. According to a report – women look their worst on Wednesday afternoons at roughly 3 in the afternoon – Here’s some new ideas on how to stay fresh from going to mush in that post-lunch, pre-pack-up period:

SS-Blog-Beauty-Slump-desk.png

When you’re at the office, sitting on your chair for 8+ hours can actually misalign your spine and can tire your eyes, fingers and back. To increase blood flow, try going for a walk or do some desk squats. Repeat a few times and you should be good to go!


SS-Blog-Beauty-Slump-sun.png

Yes, you should wear sunscreen even in the office. Not only can the sun harm your skin but so can the UV radiation that emit from the fluorescent lights and your computer screen. Don’t damage your skin, wear your sunscreen.


SS-Blog-Beauty-Slump-water.png

When you’re dehydrated your skin is dehydrated too. It's easy to forget to drink water when you're doing task after task. Drink your share of water and keep your skin hydrated - no skincare necessary!.


SS-Blog-Beauty-Slump-moist.png

One factor which dehydrates our skin throughout the day is the dry and chilly air-conditioning. Don’t forget to use products with Hyaluronic Acid to help your skin retain the moisture that will be wicked away by the A/C.

Age Prevention Cleanser is available in Simply Skin stores and at Simply Skin Selects.

Some skincare doesn’t last all day. You can moisturize in the morning and at night but how about in between the day? The easiest way to rehydrate your skin is to keep your BFF “Facial mist” wherever you go. One or two spritzes of our favourite facial mist is enough to refresh your skin and make up, giving your skin immediate hydration and a burst of antioxidants.
