Is Your Home The Cause of Your Skin Problems?

Have you been noticing your skin flairing up whether that is acne or dry and flaky or maybe just not as healthy and glowing? To the point where even makeup can't help? Well, your home could be the main cause behind that. Thankfully, there are ways to prevent this from happening.

Add Humidity

A lack of moisture isn’t going to help matters because the skin needs moisture to look its best. Without it, the body’s biggest organ will dry out very quickly. Houses tend not to have high levels of humidity, especially in the winter. After all, there aren’t many natural elements that will add moisture. With that in mind, it’s important to take matters in your hands and buy the best humidifier on the market. With a constant stream of invisible mist in the air, the skin will have all the moisture it needs to glow. I am all about humidifiers and you can sooo tell the difference when you wake up the next morning and your face feels softer and you can breath nicer... it's just better!

Filter Your Water

H2O looks the same, but it has lots of differences, one of which is bad for your skin. It’s called hard water and it’s the cause of conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. Typically, it’s found in water that flows through the faucet because it’s not filtered and as clean as spring water. Therefore, the easiest and smartest move is to stop using the taps for drinking and cooking and to buy a filter for the faucet so your water is super cleannnn! Another great option is to buy a water bottle that has a filter attached to it! Literally, my favorite water bottle because no matter where I am, at the gym or just walking around I can fill my bottle up and have filtered water without having to buy a plastic bottle! YAY for saving the environment. (; If you don't know about this then check up Astrea Water Bottles... you're welcome.

Clean More Often

A major cause of skin damage is clogged pores. Once the cells fill with dirt and grime, the bacteria builds and leads to problems such as rashes, pimples, and acne. Your everyday lifestyle affects your skin, and your home is no different. Although you can’t see it, the dust from a dirty interior is landing on your skin and building up. And, moisturizing won’t help as it will only happen time and again. To stop it, you need to clean often and remove as many mites from the surfaces as possible. Focus on the features that you have the most contact with such as your sheets and pillows.

Cut Down Your Screen Time

There is a new buzzword in town and it goes by the name of HEV. It stands for High-energy Visible light and it’s the stuff your devices give off. Sitting in front of them is thought to age your skin as exposure to HEV leads to skin pigmentation. Not only that, but there is evidence to suggest that melismas will grow too. By cutting down your screen time, you can prevent this light from aging your skin.

Let me know if have found of these reasons to be the cause of your skin problems!
