Say it with us: Aging. Is. Natural. Purely from a human-being standpoint, if we age, we are lucky. It’s time to celebrate the skin we’re in—no looking back, and certainly no “anti-aging” stance. Only forward-thinking and forward-looking skin care that helps us look and feel our best.
Burt’s Bees is a brand that celebrates nature, natural ingredients, and the cycles of renewal that happen in the natural world. We believe in empowering people to care for their skin so that it can be its most beautiful, season after season. We’ve gathered up a few other ways you can help your skin thrive at any age.
Tips for Healthy-Looking Skin
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
We all know that drinking water is important for so many aspects of our physical wellbeing. It helps our bodies function and is essential to daily life. But, drinking lots of water won’t directly hydrate your skin—your skin needs to create its own moisture, so you need to support it with smart cleansing and moisturizing day and night. You should reach for a moisturizer that contains a natural SPF of 30 or higher to hydrate while protecting your skin from the sun during the daytime and use a night cream that helps lock in moisture overnight.
Catch Some Zzz’s
Speaking of rest, make sure you’re getting enough of it. When you’re not sleeping enough, it shows on your skin. Exhaustion can lead your body to produce cortisol, the stress hormone which causes inflammation and can activate skin conditions like acne, psoriasis and eczema. Fluid drainage also happens overnight, which means those pesky under-eye bags are more likely to stay puffed when you’re sleep deprived.
Spending time outdoors is something we’re really passionate about. We call it “re-wilding,” or reconnecting with our natural habitat. There are plenty of studies that show how being outside is beneficial to your health and overall wellbeing. It decreases stress, reduces inflammation and helps eliminate fatigue—all good things for your skin! (See some of our ideas about getting outdoors here and here.)
