Beauty – when we hear this word, we imagine a face with spotless, healthy, and glowing skin with a confident smile. There wouldn’t be any human on this earth who doesn’t want to get flawless, blemish, and acne-free skin.
Although people say that true beauty comes from within and it lies in the eyes of the beholder, do not forget that beauty is often associated with fairness and glowing skin. Clear and youthful skin is one of the main elements of a person’s beauty.
There are many beauty and skin-care products available in the market that promise to give you clear, beautiful, and glowing skin. Instead of relying on these products, you can achieve a healthy and youthful-looking complexion with any skin tone naturally with these simple 9 tips.
Follow these tips for beautiful skin and youthful skin forever.
1. Drink a lot of water
Drink plenty of water daily and hydrate yourself to get glowing skin. Lack of water makes your skin dull, dry, and loose. Try to take at least 6 to 8 glasses of water per day.
According to Jyoti Singh, a naturopath, drinking water from a blue-colored bottle is beneficial as it has cooling effects.
2. Keep an eye on your food
Eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables full of vitamins and antioxidants. Take a low-sugar diet. Avoid oily, spicy, fried, salty, and citrus food. A diet full of vitamins (like vitamin C) and other nutrients promotes glowing and radiant skin. Anti-oxidants help to control inflammation and thus prevent aging and wrinkles.
Some of the best sources of antioxidants include:
• Goji berries
• Wild Blueberries
• Spinach and other dark green vegetables
3. Protect yourself from harmful sun exposure
Ideally, you should apply your best sunscreen every three hours.
4. Sweat it out to get beautiful and glowing skin
Do exercises or Yoga regularly as these activities regulate your blood circulation and accelerate the cleansing process of your entire body. You will observe a radiant glow on your skin after a workout.
Don’t use cosmetic products just before and after the workout. You can apply a toner to oil secretion. After a workout, exfoliate your skin followed by the application of Shea butter or olive oil to moisturize your skin.
5. Remove your make-up before sleep
Always remove your make-up before bed at night.
Your skin also needs to breathe overnight, as you breathe, because leaving the makeup overnight clogs the pores of your skin which may cause blemishes and/or blackheads.
Don’t use a makeup remover. You can softly remove the make-up by using some olive oil on a cotton pad and gently massage that cotton pad on your face. It will also help to remove the pollution and dirt from your skin.
6. Sound sleep
Try to sleep at least 8 hours per day as your skin rejuvenates and repairs itself mostly while you are asleep.
Make sure it should be quality sleep as sound sleep prevents under-eye dark circles.
Don’t forget to remove your makeup before you go to bed. Wash your face with warm water properly and apply some good moisturizer.
7. Avoid stress to get beautiful and glowing skin
Try to avoid stress as much as you can. Stress causes acne breakouts and makes skin oilier. Take time for yourself, and eliminate negative and disturbing people and activities from your life.
8. Develop healthy habits
Quit smoking and alcohol, as smoking & alcohol intake can make your skin dry, dehydrated, and lifeless.
These bad habits are also not good for your heart, lungs, liver, and overall health. Engage yourself in some good habits like jogging, yoga, sports, meditation, etc.
9. Use natural skin-care products for a glowing skin
So, for beautiful & glowing skin, use natural skin-care products. Do proper research before choosing your skin-care products. Look for the ingredients and check if they are safe for your skin type.
If you have any skin problems, visit your physician or a skin specialist who will examine your skin and suggest the treatment as per the requirement. Sometimes, some minor health issues like skin tags, warts, acne & pimples can damage the health of your skin and can be corrected easily with natural medicines like herbal medicines and homeopathy.
Apart from these simple tips, don’t forget that your ‘attitude is the main element’ of your beauty. A ‘Perfect Smile’ maintains the tonicity of muscles and skin of your face.
