Nutritious diet and drinking tons of water have been long attributed to perfect skin. But very few people take the pain of following healthy habits to nourish their skin.
Adding these things into your routine can make a big change. There are number of healthy habits which make a huge difference on your skin’s overall health. Giving your skin the proper nutrition, hydration and protection, you will be surprised that how much these tiny adjustments can transform your skin. Here are seven healthy habits to help your skin glow beautifully and be at its very best.
- Drink more water
Water naturally brings benefits to your body. The fact is, skin is also an organ of a body. If it is not getting sufficient amount of water, skin will dehydrate and become dry, with a flaky texture on it. Make it your habit to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. It will keep your skin hydrated and will help rid of the body toxins. Replace all your fizzy drinks with water and keep your skin healthy.
- Moisturize your skin
Dry and rough skin can make you look old and dull. Moisturizer provides deep and thorough hydration to your skin. So whether you have a dry, oily or normal skin, one must moisturize their skin daily as it is essential for the dermal cells to function optimally and give you a beautiful looking skin.
- Exercise regularly
Do you know that exercise is beneficial to your skin as well? For tighter and plumper skin “facial exercise” is the best. This exercise works on your face muscles to increase their strength. The movement on facial muscles increase micro-circulation in those particular areas making the muscles stronger and skin surface tighter. You can also massage your skin daily in the morning and at night before going to bed, to get tighter and youthful skin.
- Be gentle to your skin
Don’t wash your face a lot. If you want to remove your makeup, use soft cotton and natural olive oil. Too much washing and rubbing your skin can lead to irritation and inflammation. So be gentle to your skin as it is the most sensitive part of your body.
- Drink green tea
Green tea is more than just a green drink which originated in China. If you look at the past cultures like those of Asia, they all seem to have naturally radiant and flawless skin. This is because of green tea consumption. It is high in antioxidants which protect cells and molecules from damaging, and prevent your skin from aging.
- Get beauty sleep
When you sleep at night, your body undergoes cell repairing processes. Skin makes new collagen (protein) which prevents sagging and your body’s blood flow boosts-up while you snooze which gives you a healthy glow in the morning. So doctors suggest that one should take 6 to 8 hours of sleep at every night. These hours are considered as quality and beauty hours. Allow your skin to breathe at night and this will help it treat itself.
When a person is stressed everything looks lifeless, even the skin appears dull and tired. Daily meditation remarkably reduces stress levels, balances your hormones and lowers blood pressure to keep you calm and relaxed. Take a few minutes daily to meditate your body. This will leave significant effects on your skin and its condition will naturally improve, considerably.
