How to Get Glowing Skin in Only One Day

Updated on October 28, 2015

The skin is one of the most important parts of our body. It protects us from the elements and pollution.

Skin must cope with strain from both external and internal sources: The environment can be harsh, and the foods we eat may not always support healthy skin.

We all want to look our best, but it can be challenging in our hectic world to protect our skin as it protects us.

Factors That Damage Your Skin

Our skin endures attacks from the outside world all the time. Our job is to help our skin handle the challenges of modern life. Examples include:

  • Harmful vehicle and factory smoke that contains methane, sulphur, and other substances. These chemicals get onto our skin and penetrate deep into skin cells. This can lead to black spots and pimples.
  • Decreasing ozone, allowing ultraviolet rays from the sun into our environment with greater force. These ultraviolet rays are very harmful to our skin, creating skin damage and uneven pigmentation.

Some Commercial Products Can Be Damaging

A number of skin creams on the market claim to make the skin glow in one or two weeks. However, continuous use of these over-the-counter products can be very harmful. It is common for certain products to cause a bad reaction: black spots, blemishes, and even a rash.

Home Remedies for Tired, Damaged Skin

  • Rose water has a deep cleansing property. Before going to bed at night, combine equal amounts of rose water and raw milk. Apply to your face and leave on overnight. Your skin will be very bright and glowing in the morning.
  • In India's past, our forefathers used to eat fennel seed after meals. It has a digestive property and also cleans the blood, which helps make skin glow.

Aloe Vera: A Natural Way to Invigorate Your Skin

Aloe vera is beneficial for many ailments, particularly skin infections and diseases. Take one aloe leaf and extract its pulp (or purchase aloe vera gel), apply it to your face, and leave on for 15-30 minutes. Aloe vera has moisturizing and anti-bacterial properties to heal and protect the skin.

Healthy Skin from Within

The most important way to support glowing skin is to eat a balanced diet full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and carbohydrates. Exercise daily and drink lots of water. Water removes all of the toxic chemicals from our bodies and helps prevent all types of skin ailments. Drinking plenty of water will also help prevent dry, flaky skin.Experts recommend eight full glasses each day.

  • Include fruits and vegetables in your diet. Regular intake of fruits and vegetables dramatically improves the skin's health. Vitamin C-rich fruits such as guava and papaya are especially beneficial as they strengthen skin cells.
  • Drinking fruit juice is not as effective as eating whole fruit.

  • citrus fruit including lemons, oranges, and grapefruits
