Natural Skin Care Tips for Healthier, Beautiful Skin
Getting healthier skin is not contingent upon high-cost prescription
medications or obsessive skin care routines. Modifying your daily
routine a tiny bit and upholding disciplined cleansing habits can help
to add flawless skin to the list of your best qualities.
By avoiding foods that often make your face
breakout, your skin will be less oily and more resistant to blemishes.
Some problem foods that may cause pimples or breakouts include
chocolate and other candy, French fries, fast food, pizza and soft
To get your skin in better shape, you may not have to give up
everything that has negative effects on your skin, but rather, eat
those things in moderation. Have greasier foods as a special treat or
on rare occasion when eating a healthy, balanced meal is out of the
Hydrate and exercise
Drinking the recommended eight glasses of
water per day coupled with some regular exercise - walking, running,
bicycling, engaging in sports - should have a great impact on one's
complexion. Increased blood flow due to aerobic exercise will
positively impact one's complexion with a glowing look to replace dull
Not only will exercise and drinking water help skin tone and
texture, but it will also make you feel more energized and great about
yourself. By keeping your body in shape, you will feel less stressed
and more capable of achieving those things you set out to do.
Monitor sun exposure
By using a moderate strength sunscreen, you
will be protecting your skin from sun damage, skin cancer, aging and
premature wrinkles. Too much sun can blister one's lips, leaving them
red, sore and charred. Sunburned skin will eventually peel most times,
leaving skin areas blotchy and sensitive. The best approach to
preventing sunburn and other sun-caused skin problems is to monitor how
much time one spends in the sun and to avoid sun exposure by using
sunscreen with SPF 15 or greater.
Practice a regular cleansing routine
Cleanse, exfoliate, tone and
moisturize…this daily routine should carry you on your way toward
healthier skin. Select a gentle skin cleansing solution that works for
your specific type of skin - dry, oily, normal. Using your selected
product, cleanse face in a circular motion and rinse with lukewarm
water, as hot water zaps skin's moisture.
Follow the cleansing stage with an exfoliant. A granular product is
often especially effective in smoothing rough areas and releasing dead
skin cells, allowing the face to be better moisturized.
After the exfoliation process concludes, use a toner or an
astringent to tighten skin and remove any makeup or cleanser residue. A
nice alternative to a toner or astringent would be doing a facial
masque at least once a week, which tackles clogged pores while also
firming skin and leaving it soft and silky.
Finally, pat skin dry with a soft towel but do not dry up all the
water. Apply a moisturizer (with or without sunscreen) to help protect
skin from dryness. Those who have oily skin do not have to moisturize
as often as those who have dry, normal or combination skin.
