Hydrate from Within: "The human body is comprised of roughly 65
percent water. To maintain health, our bodies require a lot of water.
The skin is the bodyís largest organ and is an external indicator of
internal health. Keeping your body thoroughly hydrated will reflect
through your skin," says Delmore. "We should drink half our
weight in ounces of water a day," Leon says.
2. Maintain a
Good Diet: "Eat a diet containing lots of fruits and vegetables
to help keep your skin healthy. Vitamins A, C and E are antioxidants
that will help maintain your skin. Antioxidants help neutralize free
radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that contribute to cell
damage," says Delmore. And donít skip the healthy fat.
"Fat coming from avocado, olive oil and fish will contribute to
healthy skin. Bodies need fat to stay healthy, and so does your skin.
Healthy fats will help keep your skin supple and moisturized as you
age. Oil production in the skin decreases as we age and our hormone
levels shift and decline," Delmore says.
3. Get Moving:
"Incorporating exercise into your daily routine will not only
benefit your health, but your skin as well. Cardiovascular exercise
will increase your heart rate, which will improve your circulation.
Keeping your blood flowing properly will keep the healthy glow in your
skin and help your body filter out toxins," says Delmore.
"The skin cells turn over on a 28-day cycle. We should exfoliate
nightly to help the cells turn over and prevent them from building up
on the skin. A build-up of dead skin cells can lead to a dry, dull
complexion," Leon says.
5. Lather Up:
"Itís important to apply moisturizer in the morning and night
to help hydrate the skin," Leon says.
6. Put Your Mask
On: "Treat yourself to a little TLC and use a hydrating mask to
provide deeper moisture. Osea has a white algae mask that you can put
on for 15 minutes or sleep with a thin layer on. It makes skin look
amazing and is also great for rosacea and sensitive skin," Leon
