Tips to Achieve Beautiful Glowing Skin
We all want to have a healthy, beautiful and glowing skin that we can be proud of. However, we cannot prevent our facial skin from having acne and pimple all the time, which is therefore essential to follow certain steps to make our skin healthier.
A healthy glowing skin comes from proper care and nutrition. Most of the time we fail to see that achieving the healthy glow of the skin come from simple steps and does not require application of expensive products. Let us see how we can have the healthy glowing skin that we want:
Apply Aloe Vera
Applying Aloe Vera on your dry skin daily can significantly improve the glow of your skin. Aloe Vera has properties that remove dead skin cells while also improving the skin of the acne affected areas. Continuous application of Aloe Vera can lighten up acne and pimple scars.
Drink Orange Juice
Drinking natural orange juice without preservatives and sweeteners can beautify your skin. Orange juice is rich in vitamin C that is great for the reproduction of collagen, which gives the skin that smooth and rosy look.
Always remove your Makeup
There are days when we get so tired that we often forget to remove our makeup after getting home. This constitutes one of the biggest mistakes since forgetting to remove makeup and going to bed with our makeup on promotes the clogging of pores. Our makeup is exposed to dirt and bacteria during the whole day and this accumulate even if we cannot see them. Forgetting to remove makeup and cleansing our skin not only clogs our pores, we also transfer the dirt on our pillows!
Exfoliate your skin
If you have visible pores that is prone to dirt buildup and blocked pores, it is important to exfoliate daily. Use a soft loofah to lightly scrub your skin. Do this in small circular motions to promote proper blood circulation especially on your cheek area.
Dry skin is equal to dull skin. It is very important to regularly moisturize our skin especially after washing and applying toner. Applying moisturizer on our skin ensures that our skin will not remain dry after washing to avoid flaking. Even if you have oily skin, you should look for a moisturizer or facial oil made for your skin type since this can greatly promote the healthy glow of your skin.
Get the right amount of sleep
Most people fail to recognize the importance of having an adequate amount of sleep and its effects on our skin and body. Sleep is the process in which our body regenerates and rebuilds itself, including our skin. So when we lack sleep our skin does not have enough time to reproduce collagen and elastin. Without the reproduction of collagen and elastin which are the tissues responsible for the skin’s tone and firmness, our skin will look dull and dry.
Don’t overuse products
Some people feel that using all the available products and cosmetics in the market can remove their acne and prevent breakouts to happen in the future. This is a great mistake since overusing cosmetics and piling them on your face can cause irritation and damage. Placing layer upon layer of facial creams will not only make you look unnatural, but they can also counter the effect of another product’s ingredients. When using facial products, it is important to use the essentials: facial cleanser, toner, moisturizer and sunscreen.
Don’t change products easily
In the same way that you should not overuse products, you should also stop changing your facial product too often. Most of us get too impatient waiting for changes to happen, especially when a specific facial product claim to provide you with instant effect after only a few days of use. Most products take at least two weeks for you to see its effects so you should not chuck it on the trash bin if you do not find any changes after a week of use. The only exception you should take when changing products instantly is if it causes allergic reactions like redness and swelling.
Use sun protection
The healthy glow of our skin comes from its overall natural health. Exposing your skin to the harmful rays of the sun can instantly cause skin damage that will promote skin ageing and wrinkle formation. This is the reason why using sunscreen is essential even when the weather is cloudy since the ultraviolet rays of the sun can penetrate your skin even when it is not sunny. When visiting the beach or during sunny days, apply facial and body sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher to protect your skin. Using a wide-brimmed hat can also be an extra precaution.
We often hear that ‘beauty come from within’ and this does not mean only on our personal attitude and character. What we consume daily plays a huge amount on our body and skin’s overall health. This is why people who often eat junk foods and fast foods are more prone to pimples because of the unhealthy ingredients in these types of foods. It is important to balance our meals by including healthy and natural ingredients on our diet. Fruits and vegetables are great sources of vitamins and minerals like vitamins C and E that promote skin health. By eating healthy, not only are we achieving a healthy skin, but also a healthy body.
All in all, it does not really take much to have a healthy glowing skin. The key to this lies on proper skin care and protection. Having a healthy lifestyle will also be a huge advantage to maintain the glow of your skin even without makeup.
