Overworking, staying up late drinking too much alcohol, and having no personal time are all modern contributors to accelerated aging and parched skin. Yet, we are stuck in this vicious circle in the pursuit of a high spot in the career and social food chain. In spite of all that we’re putting ourselves through, we still want good skin. At the risk of having your cake and eat it too, it’s time to take a step back to help rejuvenate your skin.

When it comes to keeping skin looking good and young, all aspects must be considered. Those fine lines and wrinkles that were never there previously? When your body is stressed, it fights back in the form of accelerated aging skin and acne. Consider a lifestyle overhaul and look at the most basic details that will help rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.

One great example is keeping yourself hydrated, eating healthy food, exercising regularly, and getting an adequate amount of sleep. These are the most basic lifestyle changes that you can make and you will immediately see results: when you get enough rest, your skin has time to heal itself and your mind becomes clearer. Eating well and drinking enough water keeps your body healthy and will shine through in better skin and healthier-looking hair. Sweating it out with exercise will rid body of toxins, which will not reveal itself in the form of acne-ridden skin.

The next step you can take is to ensure that you have a good skincare routine to combat aging skin. There are several ways to approach this, and Nu Skin Malaysia is able to help you out with that. The US-based company has always prided itself on innovative anti-aging skincare and has consistently created products that enhance and rejuvenate one’s skin.

One of the ways is by tailoring your skincare to your current skin condition without having the need to purchase a completely different set of skincare, thanks to the Nu Skin ageLOC Me. This device customises anti-aging skincare according to your individual needs, and the device dispenses the most precise doses of serums and moisturisers daily to increase the efficacy of your skincare products.

To further rejuvenate your skin, there’s the Nu Skin ageLOC Galvanic Home Spa, a set of products that not only help combat aging skin, but also increase the efficacy of skincare with the help of the Galvanic Spa System, a technology that channels electrical charges to enhance the delivery of anti-aging ingredients.

With the combined uses and incorporation of these 10 beauty hacks into your lifestyle, consider your skin to be rejuvenated and back to its former glory in no time.

Hydrate yourself well

The body is made up of 70% water, so it comes to no surprise that you should constantly drink water to hydrate your body. Drinking plenty of water will help flush out toxins from your body, and it will reflect on your skin’s condition as well. While different sorts of lifestyles need different amounts of water for hydration, the rule of thumb is to drink at least two litres of water daily.

Remove makeup before you sleep

Perhaps this goes without saying, and many beauty experts have preached this endlessly, yet we know how much of an effort it can be to properly remove makeup and cleanse skin at night, especially when you’ve had a long day. But proper makeup removal is crucial, as it helps unclog the pores of makeup and dirt. Otherwise, you will inhibit the skin’s renewal process and skin will not be able to rejuvenate itself.

Exercise regularly

We’re not asking you to hit the gym for two hours on a daily basis, but it’s good to incorporate some form of exercise three to four times a week. Exercising releases endorphins, the hormones that keep you happy. When you’re happy, you would naturally have that “happy glow” tint to your skin, which keeps you looking young. Also, sweating out toxins makes your skin look great too.

Get sufficient sleep

They don’t call it “beauty sleep” for no reason. Your body produces collagen when you sleep; part of your body’s reparation process. Your complexion will also get a glowing boost when you get sufficient sleep, as your body boosts blood flow to the skin while you’re asleep. Also, remember how the last time you got sufficient sleep, you were in such a great mood? That itself is already a skin rejuvenator.

Get skincare thats tailored to your needs

No skincare works better than the one that’s tailor-made to your exact skin conditions. The Nu Skin ageLOC Me does precisely that: dispensing the accurate amount and type of anti-aging serum and moisturiser according to your skin’s condition. Having the most precise amount of ingredient measured into your skincare means your skin will absorb whatever it needs and look even better from day to day.

Surround yourself with people that make you happy

It might sound like a quote taken right off Pinterest, and you’re not wrong. However, the statement rings true and even Oprah Winfrey said it herself: “Surround yourself with people who are only going to lift you higher.” Negative people are only going to wear you down. When you’re amongst people that you love and who makes you happy, your soul feels lifted and you feel happier. It’ll show on your skin too.

Maintain good dental hygiene

Dental hygiene might sound like a queer variable when it comes to rejuvenating one’s skin, but take a moment to think about it: people look better with clean and well-maintained teeth, and rotting teeth are usually associated with octogenarians. So, brush your teeth twice a day and visit your dentist every six months, because that bright smile is going to keep you looking young.

Slather on the sun screen

While putting on sunscreen daily does not show immediate effect in rejuvenating one’s skin, you’ll certainly feel and see its efficacy later in life. When you approach your mid-30s and your peers start having freckles and skin pigmentation, you’ll be thankful that you religiously applied sunscreen in your youth. It’s never too late to start too — sunburnt skin ages quicker and takes on that leathery feel when you age. Not very attractive now, is it?

Indulge in a home spa treatment

Indulge in the benefits of a spa in the comfort of your own home. Nu Skin’s ageLOC Galvanic Home Spa consists of a kit to help you get your anti-aging spa treatment at home, and nightly as well. There’s the ageLOC Galvanic Spa System, which is a device that helps boost visible benefits of the ageLOC Future Serum by an average of 80%. The ageLOC Galvanic Spa System utilises an electrical charging technology, which helps increase the efficacy of the ingredients in the serum with the positive and negative electrical charges.

Pick up a new hobby

Variety is the spice of life, so shake things up in your life by picking up a new hobby every now and then. Learning new things will also help to stimulate your brain, which keeps you young on the inside and out. Besides, picking up a new hobby will also lead to expanding your social circle, and who knows, you might find a new love connection somewhere. And we all know love can really rejuvenate you.
