[The Clear Skin Solution]
I’ve had some people comment on how clear and smooth (dare I say radiant and glowing) my skin has been looking lately and they want to know my secret
As a previous Accutane user, I know all about greasy, oily, blemished skin. I’ve dealt with that most of my life
But the truth is I didn’t get clear and smooth skin overnight and it wasn’t just one thing that did the trick
A few of the things that I did are:
1. Switched to a more plant-based diet. I still eat meat but not as much as I did before. I make sure I have some greens with most if not all meals. And I’ve been eating a lot of smoothies with greens and fruit (among other things) mixed in.
2. Exercise! As a physical therapist I’ve known how good exercise is for the body but making it a priority when my schedule gets busy with work and family has been a game changer for my overall physical and mental health.
3. Sleep! Making 8 hours of GOOD, uninterrupted sleep has been a struggle for me and its something I am still working on but makes a big difference as well
4. I’ve also switched up my skin care products to Beauty Counter’s Counterman line. I have the Counterman Collection which includes: Daily Exfoliating Cleanser, Clarifying Toner Pads, Oil-Free Face Lotion, Smoothing Shave Cream, Cooling Aftershave Tonic, Conditioning Beard Oil, Energizing Charcoal Body Wash, and Charcoal Body Bar
I personally love the exfoliating cleanser as well as the shave regimen products. My skin isn’t as oily/greasy (just ask my wife - she hates me putting my greasy face on hers) and has been much more clear and smooth
On top of all these I’ve taken a page from the Okinawans and cover up my skin when I am out in the hot summer sun. If I don’t have clothing to protect me from the powerful rays, I use the beautycounter sunscreen. They also have a NEW tinted version that they just came out with for all of you pale skin folks out there like myself
