10 Beauty Tips that Will Give You a Glowing Skin

The hair might be a woman's glory, but a beautiful radiant skin comes a close second, which is why quite a number of women do not mind spending hundreds of dollars each month trying to achieve this beautiful skin.

Women who are aware know a radiant skin is the first step towards being beautiful and it can only be gotten when you work towards it. Luckily, achieving this beautiful skin doesn't have to see you breaking the bank as you can achieve this by adopting some everyday beauty tips or using very natural means and lifestyle habits.

Here are ten of such natural beauty tips or ways to get a great-looking skin in no time

Taking water is one of the easiest beauty tips you can adopt as it will flush out toxins from your system and also hydrate your skin from within.

9 Really Simple Beauty Tips for a Radiant Skin

1) Take a Lot of Water

This has got to be one of the cheapest beauty tips or ways to get great-looking skin. Water is readily available and you can take as much of it as you want. Health practitioners recommend taking 7 to 8 glasses of water daily to get the fully benefits of water.

When you take water, it flushes out the toxins which we accumulate from the food we eat and our interactions with the environment. With these toxins gone, your system is bound to function optimally, including blood circulation, this way, your skin gets much more nutrients.

Water also hydrates the skin from within which will reflect on the outside, leaving it soft, supple and well moisturized.

If you find you're having a hard time taking up to seven glasses of water daily, you might want to start with a few glasses daily and increase it as you go. You can also take flavoured water as this has been known to increase water intake.

2) Avoid the Sun or Make Use of a Hat on Sunny Days

The sun is very damaging and each minute you spend under it, your skin loses a little of it's elasticity and radiance. The sun is made up of ultra violent (UV) rays which have been linked to skin cancer among other skin conditions.

You should endeavour to avoid the sun as best you can or make use of a few protective clothing if you must spend some time under it. You also want to wear clothing that won't necessarily cause you heat, but will keep the majority of your skin covered.

3) Use a Cream with a Sun Protection Factor of at Least 30

Due to this damaging effects of these UVA and UVB rays, lots of cosmetic companies make sure to include a Sun Production Factor (SPF) in their skincare products. When going for a range, you should look out for a product that has an SPF of at least 30 as anything lower may be unable to fully protect your skin from the harmful effects of these UV rays.

4) Eat Foods Rich in Antioxidants

Antioxidants help eliminate free radicals from the body which have been known to be damaging. Some effects of these free radicals on the body include:

- Causing damage to the body cells.
- Bringing about more oxidative stress.

Foods rich in antioxidants will help repair any damage done by these free radicals to give you that youthful, healthy skin.

Some foods that contain high antioxidant properties include strawberries, blueberries, dark chocolate, pecans, kale, antichokes, goji berries, beans and red cabbage.

5) Use Collagen Boosting Creams

Collagen is a protein and one of the major items needed for the skin's structure and health.

It helps your skin stay firm and supple. Sadly, as you age, your body produces less of it, which is why you have to turn to collagen boosting creams and powders to get the amount you need.

Some examples of good collagen boosting creams include Pond's Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Face, Murad Rapid Collagen Infusion and Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream.

6) Go For Regular Massages

A massage benefits your skin in the following ways:

- It improves blood circulation to parts of your body, including your skin which invariably means more nutrients get to your skin, leaving it healthy.

- It improves your skin's elasticity, making it a lot more supple.

- It will reduce the build-up of dead skin cells, leaving you with a more radiant glow.

You should endeavour to get a regular massage; about 2-3 times a week to avail your skin with these health benefits.

7) Avoid Skincare Products with Certain Ingredients

Just as there are ingredients that are essential for healthy skin, there are also ingredients that are harmful and should be avoided.

Some skincare ingredients to be avoided include hydroquinone, aluminium, methyl, prophyl, diethanolamine, formaldehyde, triclosan and DMDH hydantoin & urea.

These skincare products can bring about adverse effects like

- Scarring the skin.
- Thinning the sin
- Causing damage to your kidneys and liver with prolonged use.
- Increasing your risk of skin cancer.

8) Drop Unhealthy Lifestyle Habits Like Smoking and Drinking

Smoking is bad in a lot of ways. Besides making you prone to cancer and heart disease, it also accelerate skin ageing.

The carbon monoxide in cigarette causes premature skin ageing by displacing the oxygen in your skin. It also contains nicotine that contracts your blood vessels thereby reducing blood flow to the skin as well as delaying how fast wounds heal.

It might look really simple, but dropping this habit is one of the best beauty tips that will benefit you in a lot of ways.

Drinking, on the other hand, is not bad in itself. What is bad is excessively drinking.

Research has discovered that drinking moderately might make you less prone to heart diseases. Moderate to light drinking has been pegged at one drink a day for women and two for men.

9) Desist from Using Too Many Products at the Same Time

The quest for a beautiful skin is real and most women (and men) try to achieve this by using a few beauty products all at once.

However, while these beauty products promise to give you great skin (and some deliver on this promise), using too many at once can be bad for you.

You could start reacting to one or more ingredients in one of these products and would be unable to pinpoint which exact product is causing the reaction.

You also might have a product or ingredient that is not to be used alongside another to prevent a reaction and one of these other products just might contain this ingredient to be avoided.

      Farah, these are real beauty tips. But I noticed you omitted exercise, and replaced it with massaging. Although massaging is good, it can't really take the place exercise can play. Thanks for sharing and enjoy a lovely weekend.

      Great tips and as I have a sensitive skin I tend to stay out of the sun during the hottest times of the day. I use natural ingredients as much as possible and tend to stick to one that suits. I never spend a fortune on products as many of the brand names contain too much perfume. I am so glad you included dark chocolate on your list as this is the one thing I am addicted to. Take care and stay well Farrah.
