For models, fashion week is the busiest time of the year.
Running from show to show to city to show, their jam-packed schedules leave little room for downtime.
And since they always have to be catwalk ready, the secret to their skin success is in the prep work.
Here’s 4 of the easiest ways you can sort your skin out without having to shell out on expensive products and treatments:
What you eat shows on your face and berries are one of the richest fruits in antixodiants. They help fight damaging free radicals and because of their low sugar content, are great for giving your body a boost when you’re in need of a snack.
Love your leafy greens
Vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and kale contain a range of sulphur compounds including indole 3 carbinol which help support detoxification in the liver including detoxification of sex hormones like oestrogen. Try adding in more leafy greens to keep your hormones balanced and avoid skin breakouts around hormonal changes.
Lemon water instead of lattes
Glowing skin equals hydrated skin, and instead of piling on the moisturiser, sip on warm water with half a lemon instead. Lemon is fantastic for the skin, not only because it’s packed with vitamin C, which helps us make collagen but it’s also one of the most alkalizing foods available.
Get a solid skincare routine in place
Late nights, travelling and stress can wreak havoc on the skin so a solid skincare routine is key to maintaining a glow.
Consultant Dermatologist Dr. Justine Hextall explains: “Lack of sleep and stress often result in dehydrated inflamed skin and dark circles. Hydrating with a large glass of water, using a very gentle cleanser before applying a hydrating serum or oil with anti-oxidants will definitely help keep yourskin glowing.”
Dr. Justine Hextall goes on to explain “Our skin cells are always renewing, from time to time gentle exfoliation allows the removal of dead skin cells, again this makes skin appear brighter and allows better penetration of topical serums and emollients.”
