Love is in the air. Fresh air not only revitalizes our minds, but it also does wonders for your skin. Oxygen revives and replenishes skin cells, helping to prevent skin from looking dull and aged. Go for a romantic stroll outside and allow your skin to breathe in some fresh air (but don’t forget to protect your skin from the sun).
You are the only fish in the sea for me. Drink lots of water. Your body ranges from 50-75% water, so it’s no surprise that keeping yourself hydrated is a benefit to your skin.
Eat your heart out. This Valentine’s Day, why not reach for a dark chocolate that contains less refined sugar than its milk chocolate counterpart? Dark chocolate is especially rich in antioxidants that defend against free radicals and may help prevent signs of aging. So indulge in those heart-shaped chocolates without all the guilt.
You make my heart race. Not only does exercise make you feel and look great, but it turns out it’s great for glowing skin, too. Exercise increases blood flow, which directly benefits your skin. To gain the benefits of exercise to your skin, you don’t have to become a gym rat. Even a daily 20-minute walk around your neighborhood will go a long way to glowing, healthy-looking skin.
Love the skin you’re in. Get closer this Valentine’s Day with beautifully soft skin. Invest in and follow a good skin care regimen to achieve that radiant glow with healthy, younger-looking skin. After all, relationships come and go, but your skin stays with you for life.
You’re my glass of wine. Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love, and the one you love, so once you take your seat and settle in for dinner, go ahead and order up some wine. After all, a romantic evening isn’t complete without a glass of red wine. Fortunately, red wines contain polyphenols that have been known to help protect your skin from UV light as well as help to keep it elastic. But that’s not all. Red wine is known to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by strengthening the cross-linking of collagen (a protein that helps protect the skin).
So, toast to your valentine while your skin toasts to you!
