How to get an instant glowing skin?

An unhealthy lifestyle reflects on your skin therefore you will have to change your lifestyle to begin with. Include a variety of fruits in your diet. Raw salads, sprouts, yogurt, leafy vegetables, oats are also healthy for good skin.

Drink plenty of water. You need to be well hydrated Try to avoid very cold water for drinking. Warm water flushes out toxins and cleanses the system which will add a glow to your skin. You may also add lemon juice to the water for better results. Our body needs to be moisturized from within also therefore include nuts, avocado.

Eyes are the first attraction to your face so you cannot neglect your eyes. Dark circles and fine lines around the eyes are an eyesore.

Dark circles can be reduced by following these simple tips.

  • Getting proper sleep. At least 8 hours regular sleep.
  • No stress.
  • Avoiding late hours on TV or working on Computers after 10 p.m. Reason is simple. It is very difficult to get sleep if you have been working after 10 p.m.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Add beetroot to your diet. It will cure Anaemia if in case you are anaemic.(Also a reason for dark circles)
  • Include almonds in your diet. Soak 4-5 almonds overnight and eat them next morning. They are rich in Vitamin E which is essential for good and healthy skin.
  • You can also apply sweet almond oil under your eyes to reduce dark circles. it will take a month or two depending upon the dark circles. the light ones will go away in a month but the dark ones will take two months if applied daily at night.
  • Apply Extra virgin olive oil (rich source of Vitamin E) under your eyes. You may massage it around your eyes. It will not only reduce the dark circles but it is very effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Homemade Facial scrubs

Another common skin problem is blackheads and acne. Excessive oil accumulation leads to Blackheads. These blackheads later result in acne and pimples which can leave an ugly scar on your face. Factors leading to excess oil production are stress, Oily food, skin disorder, Skin allergy or steroids intake.

Cleansing is a must in order to avoid getting blackheads. If the skin is not cleaned regularly dead skin gets accumulated in the pores which get clogged resulting in oil build up. Follow a regular cleansing routine. Steaming and cleansing is very important for a healthy skin.
Blackhead scrubs like apricot scrub or walnut scrub can be used to remove blackheads.

Use a facial scrub twice a week. Fruit packs add radiance to the skin. It helps to remove dead skin cells resulting in a brighter and glowing skin. It improves skin texture and also produces an even colour tone. It is a perfect cleansing treatment, leaving the skin rejuvenated, refreshed and glowing. You can prepare these facial scrubs at home.

  • For a scrub, mix ground almonds with yogurt. Dried and powdered lemon and orange peels can also be added. Dry and powdered mint leaves also help to add a glow. Apply the mixture on the face and leave on for a few minutes. Then, rub gently, with small circular movements, washing off with water.
  • A facial scrub can also be made with walnut powder. The procedure is similar to almonds scrub. Add honey and lemon juice.
  • For a sensitive skin boil carrots. Add 2-3 teaspoon of honey to the smashed carrots. Apply the mixture on your face and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Wash it with cold water .This natural facial mask will give you an instant glow.
