Glowing skin, one that is soft and smooth, free from dryness, dullness, spots or blemishes, is what each person desires. And with lifestyle changes like hectic schedules, irregular eating habits, inadequate sleep and pollution, achieving and maintaining flawless, glowing skin has become difficult.
Glowing skin is an indicator of the external and internal health and vitality of our skin. Any signs of deviation from these means that there is something wrong that needs to be addressed. However, making frequent trips to beauty salons or skin treatment centres to get an appealing skin is not only a timely affair but a costly one.
And since skin care should be a daily routine, it’s best to devise ways to achieve it at one’s home. Infact, keeping the skin glowing by indulging in natural skin care habits are far better than the short term extensive chemical treatments which harm your skin in the long run.
So, here are some easy ways you can give your skin a natural healthy glow, from the comfort of your home.
Use natural herbs like Turmeric, Rose water and Aloe vera
The most heard kitchen herbs are the best ingredients for natural organic skin care routine. Turmeric’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties work wonders for skin repair and improvement. Moreover, it produces collagen to fight signs of aging. Aloe vera works it’s magic by clearing the skin of impurities and rejuvenating it from daily damage, while rosewater is another skin saviour that soothes and softens the skin by gently cleaning it.
You may use these things off the kitchen shelf directly into skin packs or go for herbal or organic beauty products that contain tem as active ingredients.
Update your diet with healthy fats
Our diet is the internal factor that affects the external appearance of our skin. A good diet is always reflected in beautiful skin. Healthy diet is a great way to feed your skin with proper nutrients that repair and renew it from any damage. Healthy fats such as Omega 3, are one of the great nutrients that are specifically effective for skin. They are found in nuts, seeds, fish, etc. Additionally foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables also make the skin spotless and bright.
Exercise your way to a glowing skin
Exercise is essential not just for maintaining a healthy weight and body, but also to get a glowing skin free from any skin woes. The sweat secreted during a workout removes all the dirt and dead skin buildup that’s accumulated on the skin. Keeping a regular exercise routine maintains a healthy and trouble free clean skin.
Use a safe,sunscreen daily
Most of the external damage to the skin occurs through environmental factors, and sun damage is one of them. Using a mineral based sunscreen on a daily basis year-round irrespective of the weather, protects the skin from the Carcinogenic Ultraviolet radiation that is present outside in the open, even when it is cloudy or foggy. A mineral-based sunscreen with active ingredients like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide with an SPF 30 or higher protects the skin from aging signs which are caused by exposure to sun.
Use products that contain collagen boosters
The skin is made up of an essential protein known as collagen which unfortunately depletes with age. In that case supplementing Collagen through oral supplements or skin care products which contain collagen boosters, becomes necessary to maintain youthfulness and glow. It is the reduction or loss of collagen that makes the skin age and lose its elasticity.
Exfoliate and moisturize regularly using herbal products
Skin care routine both beforehand after bathing require regular exfoliation and moisturizing post the shower. These two small actions can help keep the skin healthy and young. Exfoliating with gentle exfoliator scrub in circular motions removes dirt, dust, blackheads and dead skin cells, renewing the skin. And applying a herbal moisturiser post bath, restores the lost moisture, to keep the skin soft and supple always.
