Every woman knows the importance of healthy looking skin. The vision of a lady with smooth, silky, gleaming, radiating skin devoid of pimples, blemishes and warts is one that can linger in your memory for a long time but one look at a lady with rough skin, acne and spots can really put anybody off. The question is how can you get your skin to look beautiful without using over-rated chemical treatments or breaking the bank?
Here are four simple tips.
Drinking six to eight glasses of water everyday enables the toxins from your body to get flushed out, causing the skin to look fresh and is important for overall good health because water aids in digestion, circulation, absorption and even excretion. Also, the skin is made up of cells. Skin cells, like all other cells in the body are made up of water. Without water, the body organs will not function properly and certainly not at their optimum, therefore you need to keep your skin hydrated.
If your skin is not getting the sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will make your skin dry, tight and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and is prone to wrinkling. Water moisturizes your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. It gets rid of wrinkles and is the best anti-aging treatment yet known!
Watch what you eat:
Ladies, what you put in your mouth is as if not more important than the products you apply on your skin! Oily foods and junk foods will soon make your skin look old and drawn. Proteins, fruits and vegetables are great for your skin and will leave you looking fresh and beautiful always.
Get enough sleep:
Do ensure you get at least eight hours of sleep every day. Stress caused by sleep deprivation causes the release of a hormone called cortisol which is one of the reasons for oily skin and acne.
Exfoliate your skin:
Exfoliating is an important part of your skin care regime. It’s simply a way of scrubbing out dead skin matter to let the new shiny part show. If done properly at least it would help to remove impurities and dead skin cells from the face and other parts of your body. The scrub, after being applied to the face has to be gently rubbed into the skin in small circular movements with your finger tips for at least five minutes. You can make your scrub at home with any of the following steps:
