Here are some of the tips you can do to get that radiant and healthy skin.


1. Stay hydrated

Drinking water has a lot of benefits to your body. Water flushes out toxins from your body and keeps you hydrated making your skin more moisturized, glowing and soft. So, it is very essential to always hydrate yourself by drinking at least 8 glasses of water every day for a healthier and brighter skin. Eating high water content fruits and vegetables can also do wonders for your skin.

2.  Cleanse

While it is true that makeup can make you feel good and more confident, it can also cause long-lasting damage to your skin if not removed properly. Research shows that sleeping with makeup on can cause premature aging. Leaving makeup overnight can clog pores which results in the development of acne and other skin issues. Make sure to remove your makeup properly before going to bed by using a makeup remover or if unavailable, you can use olive oil as a substitute instead. Just put it on a cotton pad and gently apply it onto your face to remove the dirt and impurities.

3.    Exercise regularly

Exercising may not be that interesting for others. But, doing exercise regularly can actually improve your skin condition. Working out improves blood circulation making your skin more radiant and glowing. Sweating can help release toxins, dirt, pollutants out from your body which can also clog pores. Remember to cleanse your body properly after working out to be completely free from toxins and dirt. Make sure then to apply a moisturizer or olive oil to keep your skin nourished. Doing exercise doesn’t mean you have to go to the gym every day. By just walking at least 30 minutes a day, your skin can definitely maintain a healthy glow.

get good sleep

4.    Get good quality sleep

A good night’s sleep can help promote a healthier skin as it repairs damaged cells and recovers skin moisture.  When you lack sleep, your body releases a stress hormone that can cause skin problems such as acne and eczema. It can also make your skin dry and saggy.  To prevent this, you should sleep at least 8 hours every night to help your skin look more radiant and glowing. Good sleep can also reduce puffiness around your eyes which is one of the signs of skin fatigue. If you’re having trouble sleeping at night, make sure to turn off all your gadgets and other electronic devices as they can greatly affect your sleep. You also have to regularly wash your pillows and sheets as they collect dust and mites and keep your room dark, quiet and cool for you to feel more comfortable.

5.    Eat healthy food

Food is where we get vitamins and minerals which are essential for our body. When we choose to eat unhealthy food, our body will not be able to function well. And when it doesn’t get the proper nutrition, it will seriously affect how our skin appears. Eating the right type of food is one of the keys for a healthier and more vibrant skin. Make sure to eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day. Food rich in protein and vitamin C increases the production of collagen which is responsible for the firmness and elasticity of your skin. Green leafy vegetables also help fight free radicals as they contain antioxidants which make your skin appear younger so make sure to put them on your plate.
