Your face reveals it all – what you have been eating, who you are in love with, how many hours you have slept, even the fact that you have been partying all night! Thus, it is imperative to keep your face healthy, glowing, and radiant. In this date and age, both men and women are spoilt for choice when it comes to skin care products and cosmetics – those that restore youthful skin, those that help in retaining moisture, those that protect the skin from damage from the sun, those that exfoliate and so on. Apart from cosmetics and skincare products, there are some basics about skincare that are easy to follow and yet their importance cannot be over-estimated. Here’s what you must do to get glowing radiant skin.
Tips To Get Radiant Beautiful Skin
Water! Glorious Water!
The importance of drinking at least three to four liters of water every day could never be emphasised more when it comes to achieving healthy skin. It helps hydrate the skin and rid the body of toxins, which cause pimples, and boils.
Exfoliation, or the removal of a layer of dead skin from the face, is important as it helps the new layer of skin that is underneath, to breathe. If skin cannot breathe, it becomes pale and prone to pimples and blemishes.
C The Light!
Abundant vitamin C in our body helps in keeping skin youthful as it helps in absorption of anti oxidants and helps prevent the toxins from entering the blood stream.
Make It Up Right!
If you must apply makeup, make sure you use the right products that do not damage your skin. Foundations, lotions, lipstick, mascara, rouge are some products that, if not used wisely, could damage the skin, causing pimples, blemishes, or rashes. Before applying any cosmetic product, be absolutely sure you are not allergic to it and it does not cause eruptions or boils on your skin.
Off With It
If you have applied makeup on your face, especially if it is around your eyes, make sure you take it off thoroughly before you go to bed; you could otherwise be prone to all kinds of skin infections, eczema, and pimples. The cosmetics are not natural products and can prevent the skin from breathing. Be especially careful about products that you use around the eyes; they could cause long-term problems if not cleared properly.
No Fear Fat
Some forms of oils and fats are actually good for skin and act as skin regenerators. The most potent one among them is flax oil, which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which helps regenerate and rejuvenate skin.
Eat Light! Shine Like Light!
If you eat and live the right way – try and get enough rest, include larger servings of fruits and vegetables in your diet, go low on the alcohol and coffee, completely cut out the smoking habit, you will see your skin glow in no time. Fruits and vegetables are a rich source of anti-oxidants and anti-toxins, which prevent the skin from developing blemishes. Caffeine in coffee and alcohol prevent the absorption of water and essential nutrients in the skin.
