Hints and tips for a beautiful skin
Your face is sensitive and exposed and needs greater care, so it is important for you to know which habits you need to stop or start adopting. In this article, you will find out everything your skin needs so that it can be beautiful day after day.
PUT AN END TO GENERAL PERCEPTIONS ABOUT SPOTS

A healthier lifestyle
Good habits are essential for a good skin. The key: less imperfections, more radiance … in short, an extremely healthy skin!
Hydrate. Drink at least 1.5 litres of water a day. This helps your body flush out toxins.
Make sure you get enough of the ‘beautiful skin’ vitamin: Vitamin A. It protects and nourishes the cutaneous cells and helps control the production of sebum. It is found in oranges, grapefruit, carrots and spinach.
Eat essential fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6. They are good for the skin, providing moisturisation, suppleness and beauty. They can be found in salmon, sardines, butter, certain oils such as olive oil and nuts.
Do sports. Physical activity, and fresh air are a wonderful combination. Like food, sport is essential for your balance and health and thus for the health of your skin.
Don’t press, dig into or try to remove blackheads. This is bad for your skin and you risk causing a larger spot forming and even a secondary infection and scars. If you have numerous breakouts and blackheads, go to the beauty clinic or dermatologist for a deep cleaning treatment for your skin.
Prolonged exposure to the sun
The sun is a false friend. It decreases the number of spots and blackheads but at the same time it thickens the stratum corneum, which causes more breakouts. With time the number of spots increase. Therefore, avoid overexposure to the sun and particularly do not forget to apply a non-comedogenic, high factor sun protection lotion.
Tobacco and pollution have destructive effects on the skin, threaten its balance and cause premature ageing. This is the same as saying that all this is not recommended for the improved state of your skin!
