Here's the deal. No matter how many beauty products we apply to our skin and hair, nothing beats the purifying effect of leading a healthy lifestyle that brings forth changes in your body from the inside, allowing you to achieve that highly sought after glow from within.


So here are our top tips on how to reshape your lifestyle to get you on your way to achieving that healthy glow you've always wanted. Summer is just around the corner; so it's time to #MakeItHappen, Clozetters!


--------------------------


Tip #1: Exercise

When you want to push your body to renew from inside, nothing works better than a good round of exercise that keeps your blood pumping. Whether you're into running, or tennis, or something a bit calmer like yoga or pilates, a good workout not only keeps your body trim and fit but also gives you great skin. The increase in blood flow that comes with any workout nourishes your skin with extra nutrients and oxygen, while sweating aids in cleansing your body of toxins. Keep up a good exercise regimen for a month and you'll start to see a difference in your skin.
Tip #2: Eat Healthy

For a truly healthy glow, you need to eat healthy food that will recharge your body while keeping your waistline trim and lean. Reduce your intake of processed food and carbohydrates while upping your intake of lean proteins, vegetables, and fruits. But with any diet, cheat-days are a must. We all love and need a good burger or a slice of pizza once in a while. At the end of the day, it's really all about moderation, to find that balance of keeping your mind and body happy with the food you eat.


Tip #3: Keep Moving

A stagnant lifestyle equates a stagnant body. So in-between workout days or even just throughout your daily work or school schedule, aim to keep your body moving, whether it be to take an extra 10 minute walk during your breaks or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. The best thing about increasing your body's daily movement: it prevents belly bloat---you know, that thing that happens when you spend your days just sitting down in front of a computer for hours on end.


Tip #4: Vitamin Intake

Give your body the boost it needs from the get-go by introducing daily vitamins to your regimen. Daily vitamins ensure that you're not missing out on any essential vitamins and nutrients that may be lacking in your diet. Nowadays, there's a variety of natural vitamins that target specific concerns, such as vitamins that promote healthy skin, hair, and nails that are available.


Tip #5: Add On The Glow

There is nothing wrong with perfecting and enhancing your healthy glow with beauty products. To achieve that yes-I-am-always-summer-ready type of glow, opt for a lightweight sheer foundation that will give your complexion a dewy finish. Then, dust a light bronzer around the areas that the sun naturally hits. Finish off the look with warm, pink lips for a touch of colour.

Stress, bad diet, and not using the right products are just some of the many causes of skin damage. However, we'd like to think that the worst of all is the everyday combination of pollution and harmful UV rays because it's something you cannot control. How else can you escape smog, car emissions, and haze if it's everywhere? The only way to avoid pollution is to prevent it from penetrating the skin. Thanks to Origins, we can now save ourselves from that disaster.


Say goodbye to dull skin, dark spots, dehydration, increased fine lines, heightened sensitivity, and breakouts with Origins' extensive line of pollution defence products. The need for these products is at its peak now more than ever as pollution causes oxidative stress, damages collagen, and can trigger inflammation that could lead to hyper-pigmentation.


So here are the products from Origins we recommend that will detox, strengthen, and protect your skin!


--------------------------


Detox

Detoxing is an effective way of flushing out toxins in the body and it also works best for pollution-exposed skin. Thoroughly cleanse the skin and follow it up with a pore purifying mask to remove the impurities. Use a gentle cleanser like Checks and Balances to detox the skin and balance its sebum combination. Follow it up with Clear Improvement Purifying Mask. It will absorb toxins from the environment embedded in the skin while the bamboo charcoal in the formula will soak in impurities.

It optimises the skin’s reaction to harmful external and internal factors with traditional Chinese Medicine renowned to help build your skin’s defence system. The Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion, Face Serum and Face Cream also strengthens skin immunity, soothes and hydrates skin, and reduces redness in just one week.
