Dry skin can trouble even the healthiest people – and it’s difficult to feel your best when your skin is betraying you. Fortunately, you can naturally nourish your skin in plenty of ways without having to resort to reviewing the labels on hundreds of products. Here’s how :
Drink More Water
I know, you must think that this is the least helpful tip, and all you get when you drink water is Pee. But Hydration is actually KEY to having the best skin. Keep in mind, that your skin will only look it’s best on the outside if it’s being treated well on the inside. Remind yourself to drink water at various intervals throughout your day. If you feel bored of plain water, try herbal teas (without sugar) as a substitute. Whatever you opt for, especially in this scorching heat, make sure your body is receiving the hydration is requires!
Use Natural Ingredients on Your Face
Face masks can be a great way to soothe your skin, as well as helping you to relax. This may be hard to believe, but the nutrients and elements of natural ingredients can do SO MUCH for your skin than any store, brought chemical product. For starters, it’s completely healthy and you know the ingredients that you add into your masks and scrubs. Not to mention, simple ingredients like coffee, Aloe Vera and Honey are affordable and can completely transform your skin. One exceptionally simple homemade scrub is a coconut oil and sugar concoction, made by combining a tablespoon of coconut oil and two tablespoons of sugar and stirring.
Eat A Healthy Breakfast
I’ll say it again, what you put inside your body heavily impacts how you look on the outside. Breakfast is popularly known as the most important meal of the day. One well known reason is that, it is crucial for skin health. Eating a diet that’s rich in fruits and vegetables will boost the vitamins and antioxidants in your body. Eating healthy fats, like fish oils, and staying away from processed foods with lots of preservatives may have a direct connection to healthier looking skin.
Moisturize and Use Sunscreen Daily
We cannot stress this enough, Sunscreen and Moisturizers are god sends for your skin. Moisturize your face and body with products that lock in moisture, promote healing, and have antioxidant properties to encourage a glowing, youthful look. Don’t exfoliate your skin when it feels dry, and don’t skip moisturizer just because your face feels oily. Apply moisturizer to your skin when it’s still wet from a shower or from rinsing your face. This will lock in extra moisture rather than working on a surface level to make your face feel smooth.
Wearing sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or above can prevent skin cancer. Keeping your skin shielded from harmful UV rays also guards against photoaging, which is the process of skin aging. Make sure to apply a product with sunscreen every morning, even on days when it’s raining or the sky is overcast.
Manage your Stress
I know that this is so much easier said than done, but Uncontrolled stress can make your face delicate and trigger skin inflammation and other skin issues. Always follow a healthful eating regimen and take probiotic to help the soundness of your gut. Ensure you switch off all gadgets two or three hours before you hit the hay. Also, keep away from caffeine after 6 pm and make yourself a calming cup of chamomile tea instead. It will help you relax before sleeping.
Other things you can do is attempt meditation and breathing exercises to help clear your thoughts and get the blood flowing. Also keep in mind that a good nights sleep is KEY, and will help your skin in more ways than you know. So put your phone down, and if it’s hard then ensure that you keep it away from your bed so you’re not tempted to pick it up.
Find a Good Cleansing Skincare Routine
Before heading to sleep, applying a decent cream or coconut oil helps the skin to soften, and you will get glamorous healthy skin. Using a skincare brightening night cream is another extraordinary method to nourish, maintain, and mend your skin. Search for a cream that has comfrey as its ingredient. It will help advance cell regeneration, lessen dark spots, and give you a brilliant appearance. If you want to stick to the more natural ingredients, then Using Aloe Vera and Coconut oil will do just the trick. For those Gucci eye bags, try some rosewater and cucumber. It may take longer to see results, but will work like Magic. Trust me.
Exercise and Do Yoga
Saved everyone’s favorite tip for last. But it truly makes all the difference. For a body to be fit, you should be active or do yoga because yoga and daily exercise routine decrease stress and anxiety. The various diet plan is a bonus for the skin alongside exercise, which keeps the body fit. Additionally, maintaining true serenity through yoga is an additional advantage to your efforts.
