Our skin reflects our health condition whether we are in a good condition or not. A healthy person usually has a glowing and youthful appearance. Our skin also is the largest barrier that we have to fight off infections. Therefore, proper skin care is important to make it stronger.
However, nowadays, a lot of skin care products do more harm than good because of the amount of harmful chemicals they contain. In a long turn, these chemicals can eventually do some damage not only on our skin but also to our body. If you go back to ancient times, people didn’t use cosmetics yet maintained a healthy glow by using natural methods.
Here are some organic skin care tips you could try to get that radiant glow:
Exercise regularly. Exercising daily can help you produce sweat which can be a way to release toxins from your body. It also can help increase blood flow that could help nourish your skin cells. In addition, exercising can help you release stress which can keep you looking fresh and reduce the occurrence of acne.
Keep hydrated. Drinking a sufficient amount of water daily can help you flush out toxins from your body and it will also leave your skin naturally hydrated. Skin cells are also made up of water so, it’s necessary for them to stay hydrated to function properly. Lack of hydration can leave your skin dry and flaky.
Eat a healthy diet. Eating healthy and balanced meal can help you get the necessary vitamins and minerals to keep your skin healthy. What you eat affects your overall health including your skin condition.
Use organic products. Avoid chemical-based products which can do harm such as allergies and migraines. Try to go for organic skin care products but, always read the label or the ingredients to make sure.
Cleanse before sleeping. Before you hit the hay, cleanse your face to remove any dirt or make up. You skin is still an organ and needs to breathe to be refreshed. Leaving your make up during bedtime is a formula for acne breakouts.
Avoid stress. Stress stimulates the body to produce cortisol which can leave you looking tired and unhealthy. Always have time to release your stress by doing relaxing activities such as sleeping, reading a good book or sharing a laugh with your family.
Sleep sufficiently. Lack of sleep can lead to increase inflammatory response which can lead to acne and other bad skin conditions. Enough sleep can help clear up your skin and reduce wrinkles.
