Just so you know, the skin is the largest organ in our bodies and that is why we practice a range of skin care routines to enhance its appearance. A healthy skin is the one that glows and that is why we try as much as possible to stick to the routines that relieves the skin. You also have to understand that it is okay when your skin does not respond the way you wanted it to.
Time to time we may experience the red pus-filled bumps on our faces, itchy, scaly, dry and irregular patches on our skin. This should not worry you much because we have a couple of changes that you can implement in your beauty and skin care routine to get the naturally glowing skin that you’ve always wanted.
#1. What do you eat?
We know that most of us are familiar with the saying, “You are what you eat.” We cannot be perfect all the time but we should try at least to incorporate a healthy lifestyle to get positive long-term results. Sometimes it may be a pain in the neck to try and eat healthy but getting healthy, energetic and a good appearance needs good dieting.
Most of the fruits and vegetables that we eat are actually a good source of vitamin C. It is needed in repairing of damaged tissues and formation of collagen. Therefore, the best way to get a glowing and radiant skin is by eating all the juicy red strawberries, blueberries, oranges and sweet potatoes.
#2. What do you drink?
There are way more drinks that contain essential ingredients like anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories aside from the obviously recommended water. You might want to stop investing hard in you beauty regimen and start focusing on saving more on the healthy drinks like coconut water and fresh juices that actually serves your skin with goodies.
We have discovered that coconut water leaves your skin glowing due to the intense hydrating properties. You might want to drink some coconut water once you are done with your intense workout because it replenishes electrolytes lost when exercising.
Eating fruits helps our bodies to get optimal nutrition and that is why juicing all types of fruits enhances their ability to be easily absorbed by the body. We know that not all are big funs of eating fruits and vegetables. That is why juicing is a great way to incorporate the fruits and veggies that you might not eat in your diet. An easier way to get the perfect skin right?
#3. What do you apply on your skin?
We recommend investing in products that your skin loves because some products may be pretty harsh to your skin. You do not want to keep looking for regimens that will relieve your skin due to sensitivity that is caused by some products.
If you are still not satisfied with the idea of using face masks, here are some of the reasons why you should start using them. The right face masks give the perfect treatment to the skin. If you are concerned with dehydration and oily skin, the face mask will treat these by purifying your skin.
Remember that your face is not uniform
We encourage you to pay attention to areas of your complexion that seem to have different needs. For instance some of us suffer from oily skin, sometimes dry skin and this may lead to peeling or scaling of the skin. Do not be rough with your face when this happens cause sometimes your skin only needs a little bit of pampering for it to behave well. So just give it some time!
Check out for seasons
You need to try to pay attention to seasons because our skin tend to change throughout the year just the way seasons change yearly. You need also to understand that the skin routine that you have been consistent with in summer should be different with the one you practice in winter. For colder months, look for products that hydrate the skin intensely because cold weather tends to leave our skin dry and flaky. For summer, you can use light moisturizers.
Most people prefer using sheet masks to using the regular ones because they are less messy. They contain ingredients that are powerful and friendly to the skin. It take less energy and time therefore all you need to do is to just pop it on your face for 10 to 15 minutes. This is to allow all the essential ingredients to be absorbed by your skin. The end result will be nourishing and hydrating and your skin look clear, smooth and feel clean.
It is important to apply sunscreen on exposed areas of the skin. It does not matter whether you are spending time outdoors or indoors. Sunscreen protects your skin from the sun. If not, your skin will suffer from hyperpigmentation and wrinkling. For oily skin, look for a non-comedogenic sunscreen that does not block your pores. For sensitive skin, go for mineral sunscreens that contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.
Use Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is one of the plants that widely offers natural treatment for topical skin concerns. The gel component that it has is said to have cooling properties. Therefore it is a natural treatment to skin conditions like acne, irritation and sunburn.
#4. A Giveaway
Sometimes you just need to focus on yourself and relax. Looking after your skin is essential because you will live in it forever. Take your time to treat it well because if you do, your skin will always flourish.
