Natural Skincare tips for immediate use

Healthy foods

Obviously! If you don’t eat healthy, your body cannot function efficiently. An antioxidant rich diet including fruit and vegetables is a great place to start. Cut down on sugar as sugar increases the risk of acne and makes skin age more quickly. It messes with the layer of collagen under your skin and gives you cellulite. Ugh.

Regular exercise

Overall good health depends on regular physical activity so your metabolism is at the right speed. Including exercise on a daily basis increases blood flow, giving you a refreshed appearance. t helps cells regenerate faster. Don’t forget to get your sunblock on when you go out in the sun, and of course, bathe regularly to cleanse your skin and help it breathe.

Drink up!

Hydrated skin has less to do with how much water you drink than with how well your skin holds on to moisture: drink green tea which is rich in antioxidant and drink lots of water.

The right oils

To keep your skin looking young and supple, take omega 3 (fish or flaxseed oil supplements or
eat omega 3 rich foods. Examples are salmon, flax, flaxseed oil, linseed oil. If you have dry skin, keep it moisturized with body oils.

Supplements

Experts recommend the following to fight aging: Vitamins C and E, lycopene which you can get from tomatoes, Lutein from spinach, kale and other dark greens, foods rich in beta carotene and Vitamins A and B.

From your kitchen

Nothing like homemade remedies to make you feel safe and healthy! Did you know cucumbers have an
anti-inflammatory capability, reduce puffiness, cool you down and also reduce blood flow to the area where you apply them externally? Think cucumber slices on your eyes!

To reduce the redness in your eyes, place cool damp black tea bags on them. The caffeine in the teabags shrinks blood vessels and reduces those dark circles around your eyes.

Get your Zzzz

Sleep has a solid effect on everything you do, including your weight management. Getting enough sleep is vital to keep your body functioning efficiently. When you sleep, your body regenerates cells; if you don’t get enough sleep. the body doesn’t get enough time to create new skin and regenerate those cells.

Got any tips to add?

Stay healthy!

After more than a decade in the corporate corporate work, I retired from my corporate career at 33 to focus on family. A change in priorities, and a passion for writing inspired me to start working from home and I am now living my dream as a writer and editor. I write content for clients, blog for businesses and edit manuscripts for publishers/authors. With six blogs of my own and published contributions across the web (The Huffington Post, PTPA, World of Moms, SheKnows), I writes to collect smiles and donate to charities. I shares stories about all the things I enjoy in life; parenting, mindful living, conversations, coffee, books, food, music, health, DIY, travel, photography and showing my diabetes who’s boss.

    Hi Vidya,

    I absolutely agree with all of your natural skin care tips!

    I take supplements every day including Vitamin C, fish oil, evening primrose oil, and a probiotic that contains all of the nutrients we could want to keep our skin and body healthy. I also take a natural acne supplement that has vitamins, minerals, and an amino acid in it that really helps with hormonal acne and reducing redness.

    I have recently started eating cucumbers and have noticed that if I have inflammation on my face due to a rosacea breakout that they help reduce the inflammation and redness. It is a great natural food for us to eat because it is mostly water and will keep us hydrated and they taste great too!

    Thanks again for sharing these tips, they really work if you try to implement each of them into your life.

    Hi Vidya,

    You already mentioned all important tips to provide best skincare. And I think there is nothing left for me to add on. But certainly suggest that stop using costly cosmetic products which claims to offer stunning skin. Instead you should consult with dermatologist.
