Beauty is a feeling that gives you joy and confidence, unfortunately in many parts of our planet beauty is measured with the complexion of skin and thus many look for home remedies to get fair skin but for me it is all about the glow and good health of skin that comes from maintaining a healthy lifestyle and not from the chemical tubes and tubs as I call them sarcastically.
If I say that I do not care for skin complexion I will be dishonest to my readers, even I crave for a fairer skin but for me skin glow and fairness go hand in hand, and if I have to chose one I will certainly choose glow and radiance over fairness.
Now having done a lot of blah blah let me come to the topic which is how to get glowing skin naturally with simple lifestyle changes. Trust me you will not require any cosmetic product for attaining that radiance which you long for if you simply make and maintain these simple lifestyle changes in your routine.
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
Drinking water has many health benefits and adequate water consumption is very important for our inner and outer health, it improves digestion and hydrates our body. From outer health I refer to the skin which itself is composed of 15% water.
A normal adult must drink atleast 2 liters of water daily by doing so you ensure that your body is well hydrated and that the toxin is eliminated from your body.
TAKE NUTRITIOUS DIET
Food has its own significance when we talk about glowing skin, Good nutrition is the base of skin health, the natural nutrition that we get from a well rounded diet will help your skin become smooth and soft from within.
You daily diet must have a balanced combination of Vitamins, Minerals, Protein, Antioxidants that will help to improve the overall health of skin and will keep major skin problems like wrinkles, acne, ageing etc. at bay.
Include Fiber rich food to your daily diet and eat lots of fruits and veggies.
SWEAT IT OUT
Sedentary lifestyle is one of the biggest enemies of skin radiance. Physical activity improves blood circulation, metabolism and keeps you fit and energized.
Moderate sweating helps in opening up skin pores and driving out the build up, it will flush out impurities and toxins from the body. Normal 30 minute walk, cycling, dancing, jogging or any activity that will make you sweat moderately is recommended to maintain a physically active lifestyle and has an added advantage of flawless radiant skin naturally.
THREE STEP SKIN CARE
The skin basic steps that must be followed on daily basis to get flawless glowing skin are Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing.
Cleansing is the building block of the three step skin care regime it helps in removing dirt and excess oil from the skin, and it also prepares the skin for the other steps of your skin care program. Be it bleaching or skin clean-up everything begins with cleansing.
Toning helps in removing the residual dirt or cleanser from the skin, its most important role is retaining the ph level of skin.
Moisturizing: This step will restore the moisture of the skin that was lost in previous steps thus leaving the skin soft, supple and glowing.
REMOVE THE MAKE UP BEFORE GOING TO BED
Make Up is NO SIN, I love to do make up and it plays a vital role in modern days grooming, but at the same time it is loaded with harsh chemicals and has the tendency to attract dirt, thus clogging skin pores and even causing reactions if left un-removed from skin pores.
All the make up from the face, eyes and lips must be removed before going to sleep. This can be done using a basic cleansing milk and a foaming facewash.
