Skin care is important as well as having a healthy regimen. Whatever is happening on the outside of your skin is an indication of what is happening internally. Stress, diet, and lifestyle have a large factor in your skin’s condition, but using the right products correctly will also help create healthier looking skin.
Use sunscreen: Sunscreen protects the upper layers of skin while preventing blemishes and the darkening of skin.
Drink plenty of water: Water hydrates the skin and helps it look healthy and radiant. Dehydrated skin can look dry, scaly, and dull. Drinking plenty of water also keeps you alert, as well as being a healthy alternative to soda, coffee, and juices, which can contain plenty of unwanted sugars and caffeine. Water also helps your body function properly.
Use aloe vera: Besides being a great natural remedy for burns, aloe vera has natural whitening properties. It also helps clear up blemishes while working as a good moisturizer. Aloe vera is also known for keeping skin youthful and supple.
Sugar scrubs: Using a sugar scrub is a cheap alternative for keeping healthy and clear skin. Either a honey and sugar or milk and sugar scrub is effective. The sugar helps scrub away the dead skin cells, while the honey or milk is a natural moisturizer that softens the new layer of skin. Milk is a natural whitener as well. If you did not want to use the scrub you can pour milk on a clean towel and gently rub over your face.
Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables: Having a healthy diet includes eating plenty of fruits and vegetables. They can help your skin look healthier with their nutrients and vitamins. Citrus fruits and dark green vegetables have higher nutrient values than light colored vegetables. Besides being great skin nutrients, fruits and vegetables are also healthy and delicious for a well functioning body.
Have a daily regimen of clean skin: Wash your face everyday with a gentle cleanser to remove any dead skin cells and debris as well as any excess oil.
Use a whitening cream: A good and inexpensive whitening mask such as a yogurt mask with a hint of lemon juice or a tomato mask with a hint of lemon/lime will work effectively.
Take a vitamin supplement such as fish oil or flaxseed oil: These vitamins help hair, skin, and nails look healthier and shinier while also being great nutrients to the rest of your body.
