#1 – Feed Your Skin
They say beauty comes from within, right? Well it’s true, if you eat a healthy, nutrient rich diet, you’re going to have radiant, and beautiful skin.
The antioxidants in healthy foods will help protect your skin from sun damage, keep it tight, and wrinkle free.
- Raw fats
Avoiding foods that make your skin break out helps a lot, this means avoiding sugar, and processed junk foods.
Throw these away!
- Anything containing sugar
- Deep fried food
- Processed foods
#2 – Water
You probably hear this everywhere, and it’s true. Staying hydrated is important for your skin. This is easy if you eat a lot of nutritious foods, like raw fruits and vegetables, which are high in water. Otherwise, just keep drinking pure, filtered water. I drink 8-12 glasses a day and that feels like enough.
#3 – Relaxation
Stress is one of the worst things for your skin and face. Stressing and worrying makes you look older than you are. So take a few deep breaths whenever you start feeling stressed. You could even take up meditation or yoga, they help, trust me! Take some time to relax, it is as easy as lighting some candles and putting on a face mask!
#4 – Physical Exercise
Exercise keeps the blood flowing, it gives your face a vibrant color and keeps you young. Any exercise will do, as long as you get your heart pumping and your juices flowing. Daily walks are easy to implement and cost nothing!
#5 – Beauty Sleep
Getting enough sleep is crucial! During the night, your body regenerates. So if you want to keep looking good, get your eight hours of beauty sleep.
#6 – Natural Care
The chemicals in regular beauty and facial care products can irritate your skin, or make it more sensitive. You can avoid this by using natural products that do not contain harmful substances. There’s a great variety of natural organic face care products nowadays. You could even do as I and make your own products!
#7 – Facial Siesta
Let your face relax from time to time. That means no creams, no make up, no face mask, no soap, no face toner, no nothing! Just your skin and some fresh air, recovering and taking a break from everything.
If you cover these things, especially #1, you will be on your way to a more beautiful face, and who doesn’t want that? Easier said than done, I know. But we can always aim to do our best and remember these important basic face care tips.
