Many people try to achieve beauty by using makeup and investing in expensive beauty treatments. While these things can certainly help improve your appearance, it’s important to keep in mind that true Asian beauty is about more than just looking good on the outside. If you’re not taking care of your body, no amount of makeup will be able to cover up the signs of dull skin, premature aging, or other symptoms of poor health. On the other hand, if you’re in good health, your vitality will show through your skin, hair, and body in every situation.

For real beauty that lasts, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle that addresses beauty inside and out. Here are three ways to improve your beauty routine for glowing skin, shining hair, and a healthier body.

  1. For More Radiant Skin:

  • Exfoliate regularly.

    Your body regularly sheds old skin cells to make room for newer, healthier skin. However, if you don’t exfoliate regularly, these old skins cells can build up and eventually lead to breakouts. Gently washing your face a few times a week with an exfoliating scrub can ensure that your skin is smooth and healthy.

  • Use products that contain hyaluronic acid.

    Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, meaning that it attracts moisture. Although hyaluronic acid doesn’t work well for every skin type, many people find that using a moisturizer containing hyaluronic acid helps reduce acne and facial oiliness. Hyaluronic acid can be applied to clean skin and used as a moisturizer underneath makeup.

  • Reduce sun exposure.

    Sun exposure is one of the biggest factors in premature aging. If you want to maintain soft, wrinkle-free skin and a smooth complexion, be sure to apply sun protection every day–even on cloudy days. For a simple way to protect your skin, try to find a moisturizer or foundation that contains an SPF of 15 or more.

  • Add collagen to your diet.

    Collagen increases your skin’s elasticity, helping to prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging. Fortunately, it’s easy to add collagen to your diet. Options for increasing your collagen intake include taking fish collagen supplements, adding prepackaged gelatin to your diet, or even making a homemade bone broth.

  • Increase your water intake.

    Some specialists believe that for your skin to look its best, you need to make sure that you’re taking in enough fluids throughout the day. Drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water throughout the day may help skin look fuller and more youthful.

  1. For Healthy, Shining Hair:

  • Use deep moisturizing treatments.

    Shampooing hair regularly will strip it of its natural oils, which can result in hair that’s dull and fragile. This is why it’s important to regularly moisturize your hair with deep conditioning treatments. Almond oil is a popular natural choice for a deep hair conditioner. Simply apply the oil, leave it in for at least one hour, then shampoo it out.

  • Schedule regular trims.

    If you want long hair, then make sure to schedule frequent trims. Although trimming your hair won’t help your hair grow faster, it will remove the split ends that contribute to hair breakage. In other words, trimming your hair regularly will keep it strong and healthy.

  • Add Omega-3s to your diet.

    In addition to being good for your body, Omega-3 fatty acids can help give your hair an extra shine. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in a variety of foods including fish, nuts, and seeds. You can also find Omega-3 supplements in most health food stores.

  • Stay away from heat styling.

    Blow-drying, straightening, and curling your hair using heat styling tools can damage your hair, causing it to look frizzy and dry. If you regularly use heat styling tools, consider taking a heat “vacation” for a few days every week. You can also try researching alternative hair styling techniques, including using hair rollers to style hair without heat.

  1. For a Stronger Body:

  • Exercise for strength and flexibility.

    For a beautiful, healthy body, try different exercises, such as weightlifting, yoga, aerobics, or even simply walking regularly. This will keep your body toned and lean. There are even exercises that you can do to improve your posture, which will help you look more poised every day.

  • Eat foods that are nutrient-dense and anti-inflammatory.

    You may not think that the way you eat affects your appearance, but eating nutrient-dense foods can actually slow down the effects of aging on your body.

  • Make sure to get enough sleep.

    Getting enough sleep does more than keep you alert throughout the week. Lack of sleep can actually increase your levels of inflammation and disrupt your body’s ability to regulate hormones. This means that, more than just giving you dark circles under the eyes, losing sleep can impact your health and even manifest as skin problems, such as acne.

  • Learn to recognize harmful chemicals.

    Many beauty products such as makeup, moisturizers, and hair treatments contain synthetic chemicals that are harmful to your health. It’s important to learn to recognize harmful chemicals – after all, you don’t want your beauty routine to have a negative impact on your health! Harmful chemicals to look out for include parabens, mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, and synthetic dyes. Take the time to read the labels of your beauty products, and research unfamiliar ingredients if you’re ever in doubt.

Addressing all of these aspects of your health and beauty will ensure that you’ll have true beauty that lasts. If you want to learn more about how to improve your beauty routine for best results, please contact us or visit our website.
