- The Golden Rule of a healthy skin
Make sure you always (and we mean always) remove your makeup before hitting the sheets. The skin needs to breathe overnight. And makeup prevents that, as leaving it on overnight clogs the pores which may cause blemishes and/or blackheads.
Also at least once or twice a week, exfoliate your skin to remove the layers of dead skin, sure to leave you with a more healthy glow and brighter skin. Follow a skincare routine religiously using products that suit your skin.
- Rest is the best
Try to sleep at least 8 hours every night. If you don’t get enough shut eye, your skin gets tired just like you – it sags and you get bags. So don’t risk it. Glowing skin has a smooth texture and hence, is able to reflect light to give your face a glow, and sleep is an absolutely great way to bring this glow.
- Eat Right And Healthy
Remember the saying, ‘you are what you eat’. This is absolutely true and will make sense once you switch to a healthy diet. If you eat fresh and healthy food, your skin will reciprocate the same, offering the glow you require. Some of the foods for healthy skin include:
- Stay Hydrated
You’ve heard it one hundred thousand times. But we would like to repeat the importance of drinking water. Water forms the crux of your skin’s natural barrier. When there is water loss from this barrier, your skin is prone to damage.
Count the amount with formula: 30ml per kg ( eg. 0,3l x 60kg : 1000 = 1.8 liters) Drink enough water every day and see what wonders it can do to your skin. Your skin not only glows but it also gets soft and supple as it is hydrated.
- Sweat It Out!
Exercise regularly. Running, jogging and yoga will give your body the necessary blood circulation, and also accelerate the cleansing process of your entire body. You will notice a glow on your face after working out. Racing against time? Just take a brisk walk around the block. But don’t forget about skincare before and after a workout. Apply a toner to help minimize oil production before heading out. Exfoliate after, and then apply shea butter or olive oil to moisturize the skin.
