Achieving great skin is a goal that many people have, and for good reason. Healthy, clear skin not only looks great, but it can also boost your confidence and overall well-being. However, the path to great skin isn’t always easy. 

With so many products and treatments available, it can be hard to know where to start. That’s why focusing on habits is the key to achieving and maintaining great skin. 

In this post, we’ll dive deeper into each of the 10 habits of people with great skin.

  1. They stay hydrated

Drinking plenty of water is one of the most important things you can do for your skin. Our bodies are made up of 60% water, and our skin is no exception. Drinking enough water helps to keep skin cells hydrated, plump, and healthy.

When skin is dehydrated, it can appear dull and dry, and fine lines and wrinkles may be more noticeable.

In addition to drinking water, you can also increase your hydration by eating water-rich foods, such as fruits and vegetables.

Some examples of high-water content foods include cucumbers, watermelon, oranges, and strawberries.

  1. They eat a healthy diet

What you eat can have a big impact on the health of your skin. A diet that’s high in processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats can lead to inflammation, which can worsen skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, and eczema.

On the other hand, a diet that’s rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein provides the nutrients your skin needs to stay healthy and strong.

Some key nutrients for healthy skin include:

  • Vitamin C: This antioxidant helps to protect skin from damage caused by free radicals, which can contribute to aging and other skin problems. Foods rich in vitamin C include citrus fruits, strawberries, kiwi, and bell peppers.
  • Vitamin E: Like vitamin C, vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps to protect skin from damage. It’s also important for maintaining healthy skin cell function. Foods rich in vitamin E include nuts, seeds, and leafy greens.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids: These healthy fats help to keep skin hydrated and may reduce inflammation. Good sources of omega-3s include fatty fish, such as salmon and sardines, as well as chia seeds, flaxseeds, and walnuts.

  1. They get enough sleep

Getting enough sleep is essential for overall health, and that includes skin health. While we sleep, our bodies work to repair and regenerate skin cells.

Lack of sleep can lead to a number of skin problems, including dark circles under the eyes, dull skin, and premature aging.

The amount of sleep needed varies from person to person, but most adults need between 7 and 9 hours per night. If you’re having trouble getting enough sleep, try establishing a bedtime routine and avoiding screens for at least an hour before bed.

  1. They protect their skin from the sun

Sun damage is one of the main causes of premature aging and skin damage. Over time, exposure to the sun’s UV rays can lead to wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. It can also increase the risk of skin cancer. That’s why it’s important to protect your skin from the sun.

Some ways to do this include:

  • Using sunscreen: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to all exposed skin, even on cloudy days. Reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating.
  • Wearing protective clothing: Cover up with long sleeves and pants, and wear a hat and sunglasses to protect your face and eyes.
  • Seeking shade: Try to avoid being in the sun during peak hours, which are typically between 10am and 4pm.

  1. They cleanse their skin regularly

Keeping your skin clean is an important step in maintaining its health and appearance. When your skin is clean, it’s better able to absorb the products you apply and stay free of acne and other blemishes.

However, it’s important to be gentle when cleansing your skin, as harsh products and over-cleansing can strip the skin of its natural oils and lead to dryness and irritation.

Some tips for gentle cleansing include:

  • Use a gentle cleanser: Look for a cleanser that’s free of harsh ingredients like sulfates and fragrance. Cleansers that are specifically formulated for your skin type are also a good choice.
  • Don’t over-cleanse: Cleansing your skin twice a day is usually enough. Over-cleansing can strip the skin of its natural oils and cause dryness and irritation.
  • Avoid hot water: Hot water can also strip the skin of its natural oils. Use lukewarm water instead.

  1. They moisturize daily

Moisturizing is another key step in keeping your skin healthy and hydrated. When skin is dry, it can become itchy, flaky, and more susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles. Moisturizing helps to keep the skin barrier intact, which in turn helps to prevent moisture loss.

When choosing a moisturizer, look for one that’s appropriate for your skin type. If you have oily skin, a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer may be best. 

If you have dry skin, a richer, more hydrating moisturizer may be necessary.

  1. They exercise regularly

Regular exercise has numerous health benefits, including for your skin. Exercise helps to increase blood flow, which can help to nourish skin cells and keep them healthy. It also helps to reduce stress, which can have a negative impact on skin health.

Some types of exercise that may be especially beneficial for skin health include yoga, which can help to improve circulation and reduce stress, and cardio exercises, such as running and cycling, which can help to increase blood flow.

     8. They manage stress successfully

Stress can have a negative impact on overall health, including skin health. When we’re stressed, our bodies produce hormones that can cause inflammation and lead to a number of skin problems, including acne, eczema, and psoriasis.

That’s why it’s important to find ways to manage stress.

Some techniques for managing stress include:

  • Meditation: Practicing mindfulness meditation can help to reduce stress and improve overall well-being.
  • Deep breathing: Taking deep breaths can help to reduce stress and promote relaxation.
  • Exercise: As mentioned above, exercise is a great way to reduce stress and improve skin health.

  1. They avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption

Smoking, and drinking are habits that has numerous negative health effects, including for skin health. Smoking can lead to premature aging, wrinkles, and a dull complexion. It can also increase the risk of skin cancer.

If you’re a smoker, quitting is one of the best things you can do for your skin (and overall health). If you’re not a smoker, avoid spending time around secondhand smoke.

  1. They get regular skin check-ups

Regular skin check-ups can help to detect any potential skin problems early on, including skin cancer. It’s recommended that adults have a full-body skin check with a dermatologist once a year.

During a skin check, the dermatologist will examine your skin for any suspicious moles, growths, or other changes. They may also recommend a skin cancer screening if you have a history of skin cancer in your family or have had a lot of sun exposure.


In conclusion, achieving and maintaining great skin is about more than just using the right products. It’s about adopting healthy habits that promote overall well-being. By following the 10 habits discussed in this article, you can give your skin the best chance of looking and feeling its best.

Remember, healthy skin starts from the inside out. Eating a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, and getting enough sleep are all important for maintaining healthy skin. In addition, protecting your skin from the sun, cleansing and moisturizing regularly, and getting regular exercise and skin check-ups can help to keep your skin looking its best.

While it may take some time and effort to adopt these habits, the benefits are well worth it. By taking care of your skin, you can not only improve its appearance but also protect it from potential health problems.

So start making healthy choices today and enjoy the benefits of great skin for years to come.


About author

Selma Durmo M. Pharm

“As far as I can remember I have always struggled with sensitive skin. The issues culminated in my mid-twenties when I started having rosacea flares and redness. My personal quest for effective, safe solutions took a professional turn, and I was given the opportunity to apply my (Pharma) background in developing a new skin friendly product line. My goal was to create something new, a clinically proven sustainable skincare brand. This science backed probiotic skincare derived technology is a product of years of research and innovation in personal care products. Metabiotics contain naturally produced hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, SMase, lipoteichoic acid, over 40 peptides and enzymes. All assigned with specific tasks for activating the skins native repair mechanisms.”

Following the principles of Clean Beauty, we have joined the dedicated stream of safe, non-toxic beauty enthusiasts.

Our products contain carefully selected hypoallergenic ingredients suitable for sensitive and reactive skin.

We’re committed to formulating with natural, organically-derived, and skin-friendly synthetics while excluding popular “good feeling” and potentially harmful compounds to provide the best skincare solutions.

“It is easy to get hooked on conventional products, with inviting perfumes and the instantly pleasant skin feeling. The sooner you understand that those sensations are short-lived the better! Choose Clean Beauty and allow the science backed ingredients time to work wonders on your skin.”

Cinically proven

Our products’ superiority has been proven in a controlled study on 50 volunteers where it was shown that four-week product use leads to a significant increase in skin moisture levels (39%), increased skin elasticity (50%), and a decrease in the appearance of wrinkles (23%).

Other beneficial effects include decrease in skin sensitivity, increase in skin cleanliness, evenness of the skin tone, decrease in acne formation.

This study serves as proof of the skin’s gradual return of its protective layer, integrity, and balance. All study results have been published in a peer reviewed journal as well as the full study report.

“Putting all science aside, we are most proud of our users’ testimonials. All tested volunteers claimed visible and tangible improvement in skin feel and appearance.”


The greatest breakthrough discovery we stumbled upon is that skincare and cosmetics should not be sensational.

Personal care should be comprehensive, accessible, and efficient, just as all solutions that come from nature are.

We are often faced with labels such as anti aging skin care, organic skin care, natural skincare products, which lack the necessary explanation… What do these phrases actually mean?

“Grown tired of all the misleading, incomprehensive, irrelevant information used in the beauty industry we decided to stick to a no-nonsense approach. It is what it is, and skin care is not magic! It requires commitment, patience and understanding your skins’ needs.”


We are dedicated to neutralizing our negative impact on the environment as much as possible and have joined the stream of sustainable skincare brands. We’re taking you on for the ride (we’ve even packed the goodies)!

To help minimize our carbon footprint, for every product order a tree will be planted thanks to our amazing planters at One Tree Planted. It’s estimated that a mature tree nullifies around 20lbs of CO2 a year.

We’re doing our best to reuse, reduce and recycle. Wishing to inspire a circular economy we have partnered up, to create a customized recycling program. Collect three empty plastic packages to receive your Anbiome Recycling Envelope and follow the instructions on how to take part in our recycling mission. 

Your good deed shall be rewarded. For every three products recycled you receive one product gift!


Today’s trends in skincare require the use of synthetic active ingredients which interact with the skin. Our approach is to distinguish natural alternatives, which mimic the skins native repair mechanism and are more efficient and ecologically sound.

Translating solutions from nature into industrial settings is hardly an easy task, but it’s one we enjoy undertaking.

We have screened 500+ different wild probiotic strains from the nature, to find the most powerful ones.

Special fermentation process was developed to harvest powerful molecules (HA, LTA, SMase, LA and 40 peptides).

Result is the composition of native signal components and molecules that keep the skin balanced, healthy and protected.
