Adding LED therapy to your skincare routine can produce incredible results. (Read: How does LED therapy work) So what’s the catch? Your results can be reduced by bad habits that negatively impact your skin.
Not getting enough sleep
Sleeping is important for our health. Not only will it make us feel refreshed, it will also make us look younger. A lack of sleep has been shown to bring about wrinkles and fine lines. People get dark circles when they sleep too little or if they are not getting enough quality sleep due to lifestyle choices like drinking coffee or eating late at night. Both children and adults should be getting 7-8 hours of quality sleep per night.
Drinking too much alcohol
We all know that excessive drinking can have an impact on your skin. Alcohol is a dehydrating agent so the more you drink the more your skin will look dry. But it's not just about dryness, you can also develop redness and inflammation. This is what happens when your body breaks down alcohol, which is high in sugar and carbs, into sugar that is released into your bloodstream too quickly.
A poor diet can lead to bad skin, as it deprives your body from the nutrients it needs to maintain healthy hair, nails and good-looking skin. A lack of water leads to a loss of hydro-lipids in your cells which leads to a dry and dull-looking complexion, along with wrinkles and fine lines.
The benefits of exercise are not just physical. They also include helping you to improve your appearance. Regular exercise will help you look better by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and eyebags on your face.
Not drinking enough water
Hydrating yourself daily will not only help to fight off aging but also give your skin a healthy glow. Skip the water and you'll be stuck with rough and 'shrunken' skin.
