I have always received compliments on my ‘flawless’, ‘perfect’ skin. My friends and family wanted to know ‘the secret behind it’. It never occurred to me to follow home remedies or tutorials to work upon getting a healthier looking complexion and to even out the skin tone.
Sadly, my face doesn’t fall short of seasonal breakouts and black heads. In fact the black head situation is chronic and tends to elevate during winter. It just doesn’t ‘show’. This is to remind myself and everyone else that seemingly intact skin type might just be breaking away internally.
Skin is undoubtedly the most visible expression of individual beauty; made up of both spirit and matter. This similar to any other part of the body needs to be nourished and pampered; no matter how healthy it may seem.
Mentioned here are 9 tips that every individual should incorporate into their routine for a healthier, glowing skin.
- Up Your Hydration Game
If you’re thinking about applying high H2O make up products, you’re limiting your habit to temporarily hydrating your skin. Your skin might ‘look’ hydrated but the skin cells might not absorb any water in order to stay healthy.
No matter the alternatives, you must resort to drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. This will truly hydrate the skin internally by removing toxins from the body and give you a natural glow.
- Rest is Best
Wechsler has noted that some people consider sleep to be a luxury and something they want and not necessarily need. This, however, is not true. Wechsler suggests that an average individual needs at least 8 hours of sleep in a day ‘in order for the body to restore and heal’.
Your body tends to go in the mode of repair while you’re asleep. Oxygen is passed to each skin cell which under lack of sleep is not possible and you might end up with a pale face. This is a major no-no for the future prom queen/king!
- Reduce That Work Stress
If stress could kill, it definitely would. Individuals who suffer from skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and eczema must have noticed that their skin situation worsens during stressful times.
Staying stress-free and calm is key for healthy looking, glowing skin. Incorporate meditation and yoga to your releasing stress starter pack and begin your journey towards achieving a skin that blissfully shines! If you are new to yoga, try taking a retreat with your loved one and you’ll come back hungry for more.
- Say Hello to Vitamins and Minerals
A balanced diet consisting of copious amounts of fruits and vegetables is essential to provide the right amount of vitamins and minerals to your skin. Vitamin C is exclusively wonderful to the skin as it reduces aspects of inflammation, irritation and eradicates signs of premature aging.

- Herbs and Tea Belong Together
As mentioned in this article tea and liquids, specifically green tea, is an excellent source of antioxidants.
If you struggle to reach your daily target of fruits and veggies, make sure to have one or two cups of green or any herbal tea in order to compensate for the solid antioxidants. Herbs such as dandelion and omega 3 fish oil are essential in maintaining your inner and external well-being and health.
- Get That Heart Rate Pumpin’
All day sitting at the desk is not going to help elevate that skin glow. Any activity that boosts your heart rate up is one step in the right direction of achieving your skin goals.
- The More You Mediate, The More You Radiate
Meditation might seem like an if-nothing-works option but the process can greatly influence your thinking abilities and overall mental health. Your skin will truly become radiant if you learn to become calm from within.
- Work On the Social Vibe
It is not a crime to think about yourself once in a while. Call up your friends and hang out with them to take a break from life’s mangy stressors. Inner peace would make your skin look fabulous and new like never before!
- Au Naturale
Glowing skin calls for a sticky, oily situation. Facial oils are highly concentrated than creams and lotions. One needs oil only in tiny amounts where the molecules travel deep down in the lower layers of the cells to achieve the desirable outcome of the skin. Oils have never been better. Many other herbs treatments and supplements can also give you a support for better growth of your skin cells.
By incorporating these tips into your daily routine, you can surely have a healthier looking skin, true to its form. Don’t forget to reward yourself for the changes that you bring in your daily life. It’s difficult to adopt to change but then it’s liberating as well.
