Every woman wants to have flawless skin. Beautiful and healthy skin helps you feel beautiful and confident. Your lifestyle habits and skin care regimen are the primary predictors of your skin’s health. Some of the main factors that can affect your skin, change its quality and texture are cigarettes and alcohol, stress, poor nutrition, lack of sleep, pollution, etc.
There are million of skin and beauty products that promise to protect and give you glowing skin. But, instead of relying on such products, you can try some simple and much cheaper home remedies. For today we have some clever dos and don’ts for naturally beautiful and glowing skin that will leave you speechless.
DO: Make sure you always remove your makeup before going to sleep. If you don’t remove your makeup, it will clog the pores, which may cause blackheads and/or blemishes. Your skin needs to breathe, so I advise you to use a makeup removal. Olive oil is also a great option to get rid of the dirt and makeup.
DON’T forget that exfoliation is of the utmost importance. At least once a week, exfoliate your skin to remove the layers of dead skin. A paste of walnut in powder form with yogurt is ideal to promote radiant skin and remove dirt.
DO: Drink at least 8 glasses of pure water daily. Eat veggies and fruits with high water content like cantaloupe, grapefruit, strawberry, orange, cucumber, and watermelon.
DON’T ignore rose water. It naturally hydrates your skin, maintains pH balance and helps prevent and reduce eye puffiness in the morning.
DO: Try to sleep at least 8 hours, otherwise your skin will get tired just like you. To naturally soothe your skin, apply honey on your face once a week.
DON’T forget to wash your face before going to sleep. If your skin is dry, avoid hot water and use milder cleaners that are free from alcohol.
You Are What You Eat
DO: Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, sufficient vitamins and protein. A diet low in sugar and fats and rich in vitamin C promotes glowing skin.
DON’T eat fermented and spicy foods, salt, fried food. Instead eat blander foods like applesauce, oatmeal, and rice.
Sweat It Out!
DO: Yoga, jogging or running will accelerate the cleansing process of your entire body and give it necessary blood circulation.
DON’T skip skincare after a workout. Exfoliate your skin after you are done and to moisturize the skin, apply olive oil.
DO: Try to avoid stress as much as possible. Stress causes your body to produce cortisol and some other hormones, making the skin oily. Meditation, yoga and breathing exercises can help you manage the stress easily.
DON’T forget to smile. While we spend so much time and energy to look perfect, we forget to express our inner happiness and joy. So keep smiling – it will help maintain the tone of your skin.
