As with many other things in life, when it comes to skin care it doesn’t take an expert to know that natural is best. Unfortunately many people associate natural beauty products with a hefty price tag, and although this may often be the case there are very many methods which can be help to keep the skin soft, supple, beautiful and youthful – naturally.
Hydration – is one of the easiest and most effective natural skin care tips there is. The importance of drinking plenty of water cannot be emphasized enough. Not only does this keep the skin naturally hydrated but also helps to flush out many of the toxins which are an inevitable part of modern day living.
Exercise – is equally important. If a person exercises to the point of sweating this will open up the pores of the skin which allows the toxins to escape quickly and easily.
Diet – a diet of natural, healthy food can also make an immense difference when it comes to skin care. The body is a temple and can only be as healthy as the fuel which is put inside. A good diet which is packed with the minerals and vitamins required for healthy skin can make a real difference. A diet which is rich in natural proteins like fish, white meat and nuts is a good start, mixed up with plenty of vegetables like tomato and broccoli and grains like quinoa and brown rice. Limiting the consumption of fried and spicy foods is another great tip.
Pre Bedtime Routine – the importance of removing all traces of make-up and dirt from the face cannot be emphasized enough. Without going through this important procedure the skin will be dirty and clogged for many hours which can result in a dull, lifeless complexion and even spots or acne.
Exfoliate – this is another important step on the road towards great looking, smooth skin, and can make a huge difference to the health and appearance of the skin, removing dead skin cells, blackheads, impurities and dust. Stick to natural ingredients like oats for the best results.
Sleep – this gives the body and the skin an opportunity to recharge. Getting plenty of stress free sleep is an important tip for day to day health and a great step forward when it comes to natural skin care.
Avoid the Sun – although a glowing tan may give the appearance of health, nothing could actually be further from the truth. On the one hand the sun is a great source of vitamin D which is an important health benefit, so the best idea is to take in the early morning sunshine between around 7am through to 9am before avoiding it during the day, particularly between the hours of 10am through to 2pm when it is at its harshest. Always apply Sun Screen which has an SPF rating higher than 45 before going outdoors.
Following these few, simple techniques can help to maintain a beautiful, natural and youthful glow for longer without costing the earth. It also will not be so harsh on your pocket book.
