If not the intensive care for your skin, you can apply these basic rules to enhance your natural beauty. Natural remedies does not harm your skin as well as it enhances the beauty that you are. Various beauty products not only hamper our skin but also is expensive method to get that clear, beautiful skin. Natural method is not an overnight miracle but if used regularly on the needed basis will help achieve the goal that you want.
Here comes the tips:
1. Remove make up before sleep.
Make sure you always remove your make up before going to sleep. That way the skin can breathe overnight. And make up prevents that as it clogs the pores which may cause blemishes and black heads. Take olive oil on a cotton pad and gently massage the oil onto your face to get rid of the make up and dirt. You can also use Vaseline to remove the make up.
2. Exfoliate your skin.
Exfoliation removes the layers of dead skin, and leaves you with glow and brighter skin. You can apply a paste of walnut in powder form with yogurt to exfoliate, as the antioxidants present in walnuts help remove dirt and promote radiant skin. Using various products that are toxic to soft skin is harmful as the skin absorbs toxic chemicals and that speeds up your skin’s aging process.that is why, you should use non-toxic cleaning products. You should exfoliate your skin two to three times a week for healthier skin.
3. Apply sunscreen.
Vitamin D which we get from daily sun is beneficial but too much sun promotes many skin problems. Thus, apply sunscreen with SPF of at least 15 that reflects both UVA and UVB rays since sun exposure can damage, tan, create wrinkles and age spots on your skin. Don’t skip the sunscreen whether its cold and cloudy outside. Be aware that the product does not block pores, so make sure to read the label that says ‘nonacnegenic’ or ‘noncomedogenic’.
4. Eat food that’s good for your skin.
Experts say,”Food choices can cause and combat skin problems”. Eat fresh fruits, vegetables, sufficient protein and vitamins. Consume a low sugar diet which keeps insulin levels down allowing cells to maintain a healthy balance. Low fat diet, spicy food, salt and fried food and especially fast food are the don’ts for your healthy skin. Instead, consume rice, oatmeal, organic food and food containing roughage. Vitamin C rich food promotes radiant skin and leads to fewer wrinkles. Also eating foods with antioxidants help your body to fight disease and ageing. Some of the best sources of antioxidants are: blueberries, pomegranates, spinach, nuts, green tea, etc.
Exercise at least 3 times a week to promote a healthy living and glowing skin. Yoga, running, jogging and cardio will give your body the necessary blood circulation and accelerate the cleansing process of the entire body. It increases the circulation of oxygen and nutrients and releases toxins through sweat, which leads to clearer, firmer skin. You can release your stress by doing yoga, meditation and exercise as stress hampers the beauty of your skin and takes away the charm. Do not skip the skincare before and after the workout. Exfoliate after and apply moisturizing cream.
6. Beauty sleep.
Our skin rejuvenates and repairs itself mostly while we are asleep. For a healthy face and skin, try to sleep at least 8 hours at night. Lesser sleep will tire your skin just like your body and will result in you looking pale and not fresh with eye bags and dark circles around your eyes. Don’t forget to wash your eyes and face and moisturize your skin before going to bed.
7. Drink water.
Drinking at least 2.7-3.7 liters of water will keep your body and skin hydrated. Also, eating fruits and veggies with high water content such as watermelon, cucumber, orange, strawberry, etc. hydrates and provide water to your exhausted body as it acts as a water substitute. Drinking water from copper utensils is beneficial for health and has cooling effect. If you are dehydrated, your skin looks dull, flaky, saggy and loose. Water keeps your skin plump, elastic, and smooth.

You can also use tightening pack. Some methods include: egg whites, aloe vera, lemon, cucumber(as in movies), and oil massage. Remember to smile. It’s the best exercise for your face.
9. Bath daily.
Daily bathing is healthy for your body and to freshen your mood. Harmful, toxic and stressful environment and thoughts causes your mood swings and causes various stressful hormones to secrete and affects on your facial beauty. Not only it takes away your charm but it also makes you look older and wrinkles, acne starts to appear. Daily bathing will cheer up your mood and improve the physical hygiene.

10. Cleanse your body.
Bathing only cleans you from the outside. But you also need to clean your inner parts to completely cleanse your body. Cleansing helps you to keep your mind and body healthy. A build up of toxins in the body due to the air, water and food causes damage to the body. Detoxing by way of a juice cleanse is recommended for the body. It helps to focus on energy production and eliminating toxins. Having a glass of water with squeezed lemon first thing in the mornings is also very cleansing. This also helps to lose weight.
