Ever wonder how those girls in magazines get their skin so beautiful and glowy? Much can be said about how to care for your skin, but ask any beauty specialist, and they will tell you about the six fundamental things you can do to keep your skin young and glowing.
Before we get into those, itís important to remember that what causes skin not to look as great as it should, is lack of hydration, lack of nutrients, and impurities or toxins that are not removed from the surface.
Drink Gallons Upon Gallons of Water
For some people, it is torture to drink plain water, but there is nothing like it to improve skin health. Water is what will purify and hydrate your skin along with all the other tissue in your body. If it is too much of a sacrifice to drink plain water, other alternatives are green tea, mint tea, or chamomile. Having these throughout the day is refreshing and will assist in keeping up your skinís natural appeal.
Eat Plenty of Fruits and Vegetables
The vitamins and antioxidants found in different fruits and vegetables provide you with much-needed micro-nutrients that help maintain the skinís natural, healthy appearance. Other foods that promote skin health are foods that contain collagen. You can also consume collagen as a supplement.
Stay Away from Saturated Fats and Junk Food
When you intake foods that are heavily processed and fried in unhealthy oils, the outcome is visible on your face as well as other parts of the body. Junk food causes those unsightly blemishes. We often resort to makeup to hide them, which only worsens the problem. This amount of oil is too much for our bodies to process which is why it eliminates through the pores in the skin.
Get Enough Daily Exercise To Rid Your Body Of Toxins
Taking a walk, going for a run, or doing a 20-minute workout are great ways to purify your skin from all the excess oils, toxins and additives that come into contact with your skin through beauty products, lotions and everything else. Doing these exercises is vital; otherwise, your skin will pay the price.
Follow A 3 Step Skin Care Regimen
One of the most impacting ways you can care for your skin is to have daily and weekly regimens to nourish and cleanse your skin. Here we are focusing on facial products, but the tips are right for the skin all over your body. With that said, you have to learn these three magic words, cleanse, tone and moisturize. On a weekly basis or more, if needed, you will want to exfoliate the skin with a gentle exfoliation product and also apply a weekly mud mask to eliminate impurities from deep within the surface.
Be Conscience Of What You Put On Your Face
Now that you are removing toxins and feeding your skin the right nutrients, you will also want to put some focus on making sure that you do not expose your skin to damaging elements. Hygiene comes into play here, everything that you put on your face must be germ-free. That means, number one, your hands. Secondly, pillowcases and towels must be kept exceptionally clean and makeup brushes even more so. These items that come into contact with your skin have a lot to do with how it looks on a daily basis. ††
