A beautiful and glowing skin isn’t just for women alone, men also deserve a glowing skin as well. While some people are naturally blessed with a beautiful and glowing skin, for most people a better lifestyle and beauty products may help achieve a glowing complexion.
Many beauty products flood the markets today, promising a glowing skin and most people have invested so much money on these products. While some have been lucky to achieve their desired result, many are yet to discover the best product for their skin.
Using good beauty products for your skin is good, however there are some lifestyles that can make your skin dull and unattractive. Thankfully, you don’t have to break the banks to achieve a flawless and glowing skin. Here are some natural ways to get that beautiful skin you crave for:
Avoid poking pimples
Every time you press against a pimple, it causes inflammation and distress to the skin. At the same time, bacteria is pushed deep inside the pore, and the oil glands burst, causing even more trauma which causes more acne, discoloration and scarring.
Limit Hot Water Baths
Bathing regularly with hot water strips your skin off essential oils and can create a mild burn. When you bath with hot water, blood vessels respond by dilating in an effort to cool the skin, causing flushing and ruddiness. This in the long run can damage your skin.
Watch what you eat
Research shows that a diet high in fats and carbohydrates causes more wrinkles. If you want to keep your healthy skin cells revved up and rejuvenated, it’s recommended to stick to lean protein like fish, white meat poultry, tofu, beans and lentils.
Drink plenty of water
The benefits of drinking water cannot be over emphasized and is one of the easiest ways to achieve a glowing skin is by drinking plenty of water. Water is a perfect replacement for your expensive anti-ageing treatments. It keeps the skin well hydrated and glistening, thereby, enhancing the complexion.
Over time, the natural enzymes in your skin work less effectively at removing dead skin cells, so they hang on and prevent your skin from reflecting light which leads to a dull looking skin. Exfoliation is the removal of dry/dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and is one of the most important aspects of your home skincare routine for face and body. Exfoliation not only helps many skin problems, it also increases blood circulation, which in turn helps you to achieve healthy and glowing skin. Try exfoliators that contain alpha hydroxy acids, such as glycolic acid.
Eat Water Melons
Getting the best skincare products will help you from the surface, but you also need to aid your skin from the inside as well. Watermelon, a lycopene-rich food helps reduce damage and redness caused from sun exposure, prevents future wrinkling and possibly even lowers skin cancer risk.
Detox your body
The outside of your body reflects what’s happening inside it. Skin conditions occurs when the skin can’t do its job of eliminating toxins efficiently, which happens because the other eliminative organs are overloaded as well. Some ways to detoxify your skin includes:
Include Vitamin C to your diet
Vitamins for skin are so important, particularly vitamin C, which is the key to achieving a bright, even complexion. The brightening qualities of this vitamin makes it the perfect option for people struggling with age spots and sun damage. Studies have shown that when vitamin C and vitamin E are taken together internally, they increase the ability of the skin to protect itself from sun damage.
Get quality sleep
Sleep affects your physical and mental wellbeing. While you’re sleeping, the body’s hydration rebalances. Skin is able to recover moisture, while excess water in general in the body is processed for removal. Not having enough sleep detracts from your skin’s natural beauty. Increased inflammatory cells in the body lead to an increase in the breakdown of collagen and hyaluronic acid, the molecules that give the skin its glow, bounce, and translucency.
