How to Have a Healthy, Younger Looking Skin - 5 Easy & Natural Ways

Updated on July 17, 2011

Who doesn’t want to have a naturally healthy younger-looking skin?

Of course, everyone does!  And perhaps, many are still dreaming of having not just a healthy skin but a glowing younger looking one.  Yet to achieve this dream, it doesn’t have to cost anyone a fortune.  A “naturally healthy” skin is just a simple result of how a person nurtures, takes care of, and maintains his/her body in the simplest, most natural ways both inside and out.

By simply following these 5 easy and most natural ways, one can certainly have healthy, radiant, and glowing skin... all the time!

Well-balanced diet. Maintain a well balanced diet by eating a variety of vegetables and fruits everyday. Healthy foods especially those that are high in vitamins E, A and C such as nuts, oily fishes, carrots, avocados, sweet potatoes, and low fat dairy products (milk, yogurt, cheese, etc.) when eaten regularly as part of your overall diet can boost your skin’s overall appearance.

Vitamin E (Tocopherol) for instance, is a fat-soluble vitamin and a powerful anti-oxidant which helps prevent formation of excessive scar tissues on the skin. They are also responsible for replenishing dead skin cells replacing them with new healthy ones. Fruits which have high levels of anti-oxidant and Vitamin C content such as varieties of berries: strawberries, raspberries, cranberries, blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, etc. can be very helpful in improving your skin’s health and overall appearance.

Eat plenty of healthy fruits and vegetables.

Exercise

A moderate yet regular exercise such as walking, bicycling or jogging for at least 15-30 minutes once or twice a day will not just make you fit and healthy but can also give wonderful benefits to your skin. Regular exercise helps prevent minor skin problems from occuring such as pimples and acne breakouts. Everytime you exercise, you burn fat which helps to release toxins out from the body through sweat. Exercise also accelerates blood flow and helps a great deal in overcoming stress which is the one great cause for pimples, acne breakouts and other serious skin problems.

Sleep

People who have enough time to sleep are more likely to stay healthy and show an obviously radiant & glowing skin. This is because a good night's sleep not only beats stress but it also helps in contributing a healthy physical and mental well-being. Health researches show that a good night’s sleep even delays our normal aging process. Therefore, getting yourself at least the recommended 8 hours of sleep at night is just as important as having proper nutrition and exercise. Sleep deprivation such as by cutting back on your sleep in order to do things that you cannot do during the day can weaken your immune system thus it can also give devastating consequences to your health.

Water

Don’t forget to drink plenty of water everyday as proper hydration is very important for your overall health. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily helps improve your regular bodily functions such as digestion, circulation, absorption, etc., and will do a lot of healthy benefits for your skin. You can also help hydrate your body through other liquid intakes such as by drinking milk, fresh fruit juices, and other healthy beverages as well as by eating water-rich fruits and vegetables like melons, cucumbers, etc. which all contributes in making your skin look healthier. This is because water not only helps carry nutrients into your skin cells but it also helps in flushing out and removing harmful toxins from your body. If your body is dehydrated, the harmful toxins can build up and escape through your skin pores thus contributing to acne breakouts.

Skin care regimen

Take care of your skin by following a regular skin care regimen that works best and most convenient for you. Cleanse. Tone. Moisturize.

Whatever method you’ll use in cleansing, toning and moisturizing, your skin will still feel great and look healthy as long as you'll do it regularly. And you dont need to spend a lot of money from your pocket just to improve or treat your skin’s appearance. You can either prepare your own homemade natural ingredients such as by using milk, yogurt, avocado, honey, etc. to make a skin cleanser, toner or moisturizer mixture - or choose a quality yet affordable ready-to-use skin care products available in the market.

If you don't really have time to prepare a homemade skin care mixture out of all-natural ingredients and would prefer to just buy the ready-to-use natural skin care ingredients, then try to opt for those commercial products that are made with pure natural organic ingredients that will best suit your skin type.

For instance, if you have a dry skin type, choose a natural skin care cleanser, toner, or moisturizer that is specially formulated for dry skin. With the wide variety of all-natural skin care products in the market these days, there are several skin care products formulated with 100% natural and pure organic ingredients that can really do a great deal in maintaining your healthy skin.

      @ europewalker - absolutely true, getting 8 hours of sleep a day especially for busy working adults can be very difficult. I do the rest of the above, too but like you I also have difficulty in trying to get as much as sleep as I can - but I still keep on trying. Thanks for your good comments and for reading my hub! :-)

      @ breakfastpop - I hope you liked reading my hub and the advices given above. Thanks for dropping by! :-)
