How to Achieve Healthy Skin Naturally
The saying may state that beauty is only skin-deep. But the importance of skin goes a lot deeper. The skin is more than just the body's visible outer layer; it's an organ charged with many important duties. Taking care of your skin the right way is not just beneficial for your physical look but also your overall health. These are some ways you can show your skin some love--chemical-free!
STICK TO A NUTRITIOUS DIET
Everything healthy that shows outside starts from the inside. Did you know that digestive problems are often the result of skin impurities? Hence, taking in the right amount of micro-nutrients and vitamins is really essential for healthy skin. Include in your daily diet protein-rich foods like fish, nuts and white meat; grains like buckwheat, brown rice and quinoa; and vegetables like broccoli, tomato and carrots.
DRINK LOTS OF WATER
You've probably been told a hundred times already that drinking lots of water daily is beneficial for you, and your skin is no exception to those parts of yourself that reap the benefits of your water intake. Water cleanses your body and eliminates toxins and wastes. It also hydrates your body, removes excess oil and dirt, rids your skin from dryness and wrinkles and boosts your immune system.
ADD HYDRATION TO YOUR SKIN REGIMEN
Your skin needs as much water on the outside as it does on the inside. That means you need to hydrate it regularly. Look for facial hydrating products that contain natural ingredients like SIBU SEA Berry THERAPY'S Hydrating Facial Serum, which has the wild-crafted, Himalayan sea buckthorn known as Turkistanica, helping maintain youthful skin tone and texture and brighten complexion.
For your hands and other parts of the skin, you can try out Nature Bare's Hydrating Hand Butter. It has ingredients like Aloe Vera, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Jojoba Oil and Candelillia Wax, all working perfectly to help hydrate and soften extremely dry skin.
DON'T FORGET TO EXFOLIATE
When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. The build-up can also result in excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne. Get rid of old skin cell build-up with proper exfoliation. Try out chemical-free products like Yorba Organics' Exfoliating Clay Wash, which has Bentonite Clay that gently scrubs skin surface to detoxify and reveal smoother, more youthful skin, as well as Wild Harvested Kalahari Melon Oil, Organic Spearmint Oil, Rooibos Leaf Extract and Orange Peel Oil to balance the skin and leave it soft and hydrated. You can also opt for Sula NYC's Exfoliating Olive Soap, which treats your skin to a healthy dose of olives that give your skin a naturally glowing texture and abundant moisture.
GET SOME REST
Getting some rest is your final secret to getting flawless and glowing skin naturally. Stress hormones lead to excessive oil production which in turn result to various skin problems. At least 7 to 8 hours of sleep is needed for an active mind and glowing skin. Apart from sleep, you can also get some rest by having occasional visits to the spa, doing some yoga, or having any other hobby that makes you relaxed and happy.
