A Guide to Clear, Radiant Skin- Guest Post by Catherine
I have had such an amazing day today. I was given the chance to work with the Top Banana team who are Lush staff who specialise in selling the Gorilla perfume range. They are currently touring the country in the fab perfume bus showcasing the new collection and I was lucky enough to join them and work on the bus today in Oxford. It was such a great experience and I learnt so much, but it has left me super tired so its probably a good thing that I had this guest post lined up by Catherine. If you would like to guest post for Three Little Buhos then just pop me an email at email@example.com
A guide to having clear and radiant skin
Similar to our eyes, our skin is one of the first things people notice about us. Having flawless radiant skin that exudes health, youthfulness and vitality, is the key to looking and feeling great. Whilst much of our skin’s appearance stems from our genes, a huge percentage of our skin’s condition is controlled by external factors.
The good news is that by taking a few simple steps the overall look and feel of your skin can be significantly enhanced – here’s how:
Drink plenty of water Body care is not just surface deep and what we put inside our body is equally as important as the products we apply to the outside.
One of the best ways to achieve clear and radiant skin is to drink plenty of water. Water clears the body of harmful toxins which can have damaging effects on your skin. Whilst it won’t happen overnight, many people insist that after spending a few days drinking the recommended eight glasses of water a day their skin appears clearer and more radiant.
Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables
Consuming the recommended five pieces of fruit and vegetables a day can help ensure you have clear and radiant skin. This is because fruit and vegetables are packed with antioxidants which fight against free radicals, help control acne and prevent the onset of fine lines and wrinkles.
Give up smoking
Smoking plays havoc with your skin and can mean smokers as young as 30 have a ravaged complexion that is well beyond its years. In reducing the blood flow to the lower layer of skin, smoking means less oxygen is delivered to the skin and the result is a sallow and unhealthy complexion.
The good news is that as soon as you give up smoking your skin will start to repair itself and begin to look clearer and more radiant – just another incentive to kick this bad habit.
Cleanse, tone and moisturise
For a great complexion and flawless skin, it’s important that you cleanse, tone and moisturise daily. Ensure you choose cosmetic products that are specifically designed for your skin type. Johnson’s Beauty has a wide range of products which cater for every type of skin and are a good place to begin your search.
To begin your routine, cleanse your face thoroughly to remove any traces of dirt. After cleansing, use a toner to remove any excess grease and create a more even skin tone. Finally, moisturise your skin with a moisturiser containing sunscreen of at least SPF15 as this will protect your skin from the damaging effects of UV rays.
