Top 3 Tips for Healthy Skin

Add a Serum to your Routine

Serums often get forgotten when we're busy cleansing, toning and moisturizing already.  However, serums are incredibly nourishing for our skin and can help combat dryness, signs of aging and can be beneficial even for acne prone and oily skin.  The options will vary and are going to depend on your skin type and goals.  

Some of our absolute favourites include the Rocky Mountain Soap Co Serums, Derma E Serums and the Prairie Bliss Serums

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

We say it time and time again but a lot of our symptoms that we want a supplement to fix, could potential improve by just adding some more water to our day.  For our skin, hydration is incredibly important to promote a glowing and beautiful complexion. 

Getting into the habit of drinking water can be tricky for some.  We suggest carrying a big water bottle around with you to remind you to drink that H2O or setting some reminders on your phone.

Omega 3's and Collagen

Omega 3's are a type of essential fatty acid, meaning our body can't produce them on its own,  we need to get them from our diet or through supplementation.   We can get Omega 3's in our diet through foods like nuts and seeds like hemp, chia, flax as well as seafood.

Omega 3's have many different health benefits, but when it comes to our skin, Omega 3's can provide lubrication to the skin from the inside, sealing in moisture and can be helpful for dry, itchy skin, eczema and can even help reduce acne.

Collagen is another one of our healthy skin must-haves.  Collagen is a protein that our body naturally produces and is found in our hair, skin, nails, joints, muscles and tendons.  It's almost like the "glue" that holds our body together.  However, once we turn between 25-30 our own body's collagen production starts to decline and we might start to experience symptoms like aches and pains in our joints, skin wrinkles, elasticity issues or dull skin.
