Get Healthy, Flawless, and Glowing Skin
Below are some of the easy to do tips for your skincare to make smooth and glowing skin this winter:
In order to get that glowing skin that everyone wants, make sure you drink plenty of water each day. The recommended amount to drink is eight glasses. The water that you drink keeps your skin hydrated and supple and allows any toxins that might build up to be washed away instead.
A homemade mask is a key to glowing skin.
Form a smooth paste out of olive oil, raw almonds, and milk. Once you have this paste, stir in some orange zest. Put it on your face, then let it sit for approximately 15 minutes. Next, you would wash this mixture off gently, then run an ice cube over your face.
For glowing skin and a healthy body, eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, and drink lots of water! At least fifty percent of your food should be fresh fruits and veggies, and you should drink at least 64 ounces of pure water every day. The moisture and roughage in fresh fruits and vegetables work to detoxify your system and keep your insides running smoothly. Pure water washes away toxins for glowing skin.
Moisturize your skin regularly:
Your skin not only needs more moisture but moisture right after you wash. Applying moisture to damp skin helps seal that dampness into the skin. Keep a bottle near the bathtub or sink and use that every time you wash.
Apply sunscreen even on grey winter days:
Wear gloves and scarves to protect your skin from cold winds. Don’t forget the sunscreen. The Winter sun can be just as damaging as the summer sun.
Hydrate from the inside out:
We tend to drink less water in the winter but don’t forget that your skin needs hydration from the inside out. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and hydrating at the same time. Eating foods high in water content can help hydrate your skin. You can eat apples, oranges, kiwi, and watery veggies like tomatoes, cucumbers, and carrots.
Use DIY Masks:
Homemade hydrating masks can provide needed moisture on cold days. Use natural moisturizing ingredients like honey, avocado, yogurt, olive and jojoba oils, almond oil, bananas, and aloe. Mix what you like together to create a cream or paste, and leave it on the skin for 10-30 minutes for lasting hydration. Just do a patch test on your skin before applying it to your face or body.
Wash in Lukewarm Water:
Hot showers and baths always feel good in the winter but try to take bath with lukewarm water. This will prevent your skin from getting dry or patchy.
