Lots of us work pretty hard to achieve that photo-ready perfection to our look. Grooming and enhancing with products and cosmetics takes up a fair bit of time each morning. But there are times when you wish you could look pretty incredible without all the extra work. Looking good comes naturally when you’re fit and healthy. So what does it take to get the healthy look this summer?
Starting from the top, take a close look at your scalp. Your hair follicles sit beneath the surface of the skin here. You want roots to be healthy, so you don’t end up with thinning patches. And you want the scalp to be clear, so you don’t get lots of dry flakes on your clothing. Sore, itchy scalp is a common problem. You can’t help but scratch, and it can make a mess of your hair as well as weakening the roots. Use a good scalp irritation treatment to rid yourself of this problem and ensure your hair looks incredible every day.
Protect your scalp and hair by wearing a hat or scarf over your head when the sun is out. Damage from the sun can extend far beyond just drying you out. The scalp can suffer sunburn, and the hair can become burnt and frazzled too. Use extra moisturising conditioning treatment if you will be out and about, especially if you plan to be in the water a lot.
Your face can suffer lots of different kinds of breakouts. Boils are one of the worst things to experience on your face. They can be quite dangerous if left untreated. They don’t form a head but continue to grow and cause pain and illness. See your doctor if you have a boil on your face. Acne and the odd pimple are best left alone but keep your skin spotless to avoid it spreading. Try not to touch them. Drinking plenty of water can help get rid of them quicker and even prevent them. Sadly, hormone changes are often to blame.
Your skin needs nourishing. All over your body, your skin could be screaming out for a healthy diet and plenty of water. It will ensure the cells are renewed and regenerated. And it will help keep your skin hydrated and supple. It’s not a recommended way to avoid damage from the sun, but it may help your skin cope with the hazards the environment throws at us just a little better. Best of all, the skin will look naturally healthy, reducing the need for extra cosmetic attention.
Exercise is also good for our looks. Not only can it help tone your body into the shape you desire, but it improves the circulation to our skin. We can get a natural, healthy glow from doing just a little extra activity every day. Sweating is an excellent way to detox the skin, removing dirt, grime, and puffiness. It can even help reduce dark circles the eyes. Of course, you’ll have to do your makeup again after your shower! Have a healthy summer.
