Beautiful skin is a must have for both men and women. Not only is your skin the tell-tale sign of your age, but it is also tells a lot about your personal habits. Having skin that is beautiful is not an overnight journey that can be quickly achieved, however you can make small adjustments in your routine every day that will go a long way in improving the beauty of your skin.
Step 1: Breaking a sweat is a big way you can clear your complexion. People who exercises less frequently tend to have more acne, blackheads, and blemish problems that those who exercise a minimum of four or five times a week. While exercising the sweat that you release helps to cleanse your pores of bacteria and impurities that would otherwise block your pores and cause acne. Exercising also helps increase the blood flow to your skin, thereby increasing the oxygen which will help your skin to have that glowing look and feel. Try exercising for a couple of days and you will start to notice a marked difference.
Step 2: Exfoliating your skin is what comes next. After you’ve had some serious power workouts it’s time to hop in the shower and scrub all that sweat off. What you don’t want is that the sweat that just expelled all the impurities stays on your skin and sinks in all over again. Use a bath scrubber and body scrub. Natural ones work best. And with a bit of research online you can come up with some simply DIY bath scrubs that can be made in the convenience of your home and with the ingredients in your kitchen. Exfoliating, however, should not be done every day. Three or four times a week, tops. Give your skin some time to repair itself without having the daily grind of exfoliation. On the days when you are not using a body scrub, go for a mild body washing gel or shower cream. These are generally gentle on the skin but cleansing at the same time.
Step 3: In order to have skin that is truly flawless and blemish free, one must be sure to drink plenty of water. This will help to flush toxins out of your body and keep your skin hydrated and feeling fresh from the inside out. Moisturising your skin through using moisturizing lotions, essential oils, or rose water is some of the best ways for moisturising your skin from the outside. When it comes to moisturizing your skin, try as much as possible to go for natural products with less chemical compounds in them. Essential oils like olive oil, rosehip oil, chamomile oil, grape seed oil, and even grape seed oil work perfect in repairing scars, dry skin, stretch marks, or scars. Using oils also helps the skin to retain a natural youthful look. Grape seed oil, for example is best known for its anti-ageing benefits. Other oils like Bio Oil have been created using a culmination of essential oils like calendula, lavender, rosemary, and chamomile. Because the ingredients used in making Bio-Oil are natural and organic it is safe to use even for those with sensitive skin. Oils are best used on the skin within five to ten minutes of coming out of the shower.
Step 4: Eat foods that will boost your skin’s health. Foods that are high is salt and sugar tend to lead to skin problems and blemishes. If you want your skin to be truly healthy then remember that you are what you eat. What goes inside your mouth will start to show itself on your skin. So be wise and priorities what should be on your shopping list and what should end up on your plate. In general, an abundance of good fruit and veggies does wonders. However these should not be processed, either washed and eaten raw or cooked at home where you can monitor what goes into the making of it. Fish and poultry also help to replenish your skin cells and give your skin that necessary glow.
