3 tips to achieve a youthful complexion

1) Protect your skin against sun damage

The most common source of uneven skin is sun exposure without protection. Going on holidays and spending hours under the sun sounds great but it can have really bad consequences: it damages skin and you will quickly go from honey warm skin, to blotchy, dull and damaged. However, even a few minutes of sun exposure can have an impact on skin, that is why it is important to use sunscreen no matter where you go. Go for a sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 30, and protects against both UVA and UVB rays.

Fruits and vegetables provide a great basis for nourishing healthy skin.

2) Nourish

If you want to have a soft and clear complexion, it is essential that you nourish your skin since dry skin is more prone to darkening. There are many ingredients that can help nourish your skin and the most famous treatment is using Hyaluronic acid. This acid helps skin retain moisture by their water-attracting ability.

3) Eat for a clear complexion

Everything starts from the inside, so eating well results in better skin complexion. Fruits and vegetables provide a great basis for nourishing healthy skin. They are rich in essential nutrients like vitamin A, which prevents dry and flaky skin, vitamin C, which encourages collagen production, and vitamin E, which re-hydrates the skin. Another good nutrient is Omega-3 fatty acids since they are essential for nourishing the skin. Fish, avocado, and walnuts are some examples of food that contain Omega-3 fatty acids.
