Beautiful skin comes from good genes. Though this is undeniable, I believe there is still a lot you can do to achieve a glowing complexion. I have read a lot on this topic and have come to my conclusions. Here are my 6 skin-perfect tips delivered straight to you:
♦ Daily Cleanse ♦ Maintaining a good face hygiene is particularly important. Washing your skin with water daily or using micellar water to clean off dirt is the first and most important step to your skin goal.
♦ Hydrate ♦ Drinking water is a common tip, but there is a good reason behind its popularity – it works! The more hydrated your body is, the softer your skin will be.
♦ Diet ♦ Beware what you’re consuming, because you’re what you’re eating. Fruits and vegetables are great for the whole body and definitely work well for achieving beautiful skin. I myself try to eat as many of them as possible. Another precious tip is avoiding sweets and chocolates, as well as foods full of preservatives. These all have a negative impact on how your skin looks.
♦ Exercise ♦ Doing sports improves circulation and oxygen capacity which has a pretty favorable effect on your glowing skin. Don’t forget to raise your pulse daily and watch out for the effect. Just bare in mind – it comes with time.
♦ Sleep ♦ Do sleep a minimum of 7 hours per night. Yes, per night! Nothing can substitute a good night rest, because our bodies are programmed to sleep at night.
♦ Use the right skin products ♦ Though you can do a lot to hydrate your skin from the inside out, the environment we live in is extremely harsh. This makes the use of skin products a need, even a must. However, make sure you know your skin type and problems, and choose appropriate natural products.
Since I’m prone to having generally dry skin, applying rich nourishing products feels great for me. A product I’ve been introduced to lately is Bio Oil. Though it’s been on the market for quite a long time, I’ve never tried it before. However, what I like about it the most is the fact it’s an oil, but at the same time its not greasy. Also, Bio Oil has this really gentle flowery scent I do enjoy. Additionally, this product is good for preventing and fighting scars, stretch marks, and signs of ageing. Maybe with time I’ll be able to tell if it works for these in particular. At this stage I can assure you – it feels great for my skin.
