Healthy and Glowing Skin : Not Just A Dream

All of us wish to have a skin like those favorite actresses and TV commercial models. They might not actually have that great a skin actually but, with the steps that i will elaborate on , YOU can surely make this dream to a reality.

Before we begin with the various steps that we can take to improvise our skin, we need to understand what is reflected on our skin. The general state of health of our Mind and Body is what is reflected on our skin. What we see today is a result of the routine activities that we have been doing knowingly or unknowingly.

Mind Your Diet

What we eat and at what time we eat is very important. Schedule your major meals of day at fixed time and regular time intervals. Don't have very long gaps in your meals as being empty stomach can cause increased gastric acid production and in the long run cause gastritis. This will reflect on your overall health and make your skin dull.

As much as possible try to eat a balanced diet, have a good share of vegetables and fruits as they are the primary source of those anti-oxidants for you. These will also improvethe elasticity of your skin.

Healthy Diet: The First step to Healthy Skin

Drink Plenty of Water

Water is not just a means to quench your thirst but the function is way beyond that. It constitutes more than 70% of body weight. Always be sure to have 1.5-2 L of water per day to keep your body and skin hydrated. It helps to wash off toxins from your body and keeps all internal systems functioning well.

Have a glass of water on waking up to clarify your body, a glass in mid-day to hydrate, a glass after each meal to aid in digestion and any time to quench your thirst.

Drink Healthy

Skin Cleansing Routine

The Mantra is to keep your skin clean, wash your face twice a day and use the soap and follow-up with a moisturizer as per your skin type.Avoid touching your face frequently as it may cause infection and breakouts. Use a good quality sunscreen when going out to protect damage caused by sun. Be cautious to replenish your beauty care products stock regularly, keep your make-up brushes and other applicators clean, try washing them weekly.

Use mild soaps and shampoos to save your skin from harmful and irritant chemicals. Before going to bed cleanse and moisturize your skin.
