11 Things People with Flawless Skin Do Differently

11 Things People with Flawless Skin Do Differently

The people who invest in their skin are sure of reaping the fruits of their hard work. Investing in a daily routine will ensure that the skin is shiny and flawless even as one ages. The quality of our skin is determined by our genes, but our daily habits also play an important role.

Here is a list of things that people with flawless skin do differently.

They Eat Healthy

They ensure that they have a healthy balanced meal at all times. Anything that has to do with your body’s health will start from what is ingested. We are what we eat! People who have flawless skin practice healthy eating. This involves taking natural foods like whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and avoiding processed foods. Omega-3 fatty acids should be incorporated into the daily diet because it helps make the skin shiny and leave it glowing. Oscar winning actress Halle Berry has shared her skin care secrets, which include regular exercise and taking a healthy meal daily.

They Stay Well Hydrated

They take plenty of fluids to make sure that their skin is flawless. Water helps in removing the waste products from the skin and the body. This, in turn, helps to make the skin glow. It also aids in removing excess dirt and oil, ensuring that the digestive system is working well. 15% of the skin is water. Therefore, it is important to take at least 2 liters of water daily. Lucy Liu, a beautiful actress, attributes her radiant skin to avoiding caffeine and proper hydration.

They Avoid Excessive Sunlight

They wear clothes that cover most of their body parts when it is too hot and they can’t avoid the sunshine. The rays of the sun are a good source of vitamin D. It is advisable to expose oneself to the sun in the early hours of the morning because the sun is not too hot. However, one should avoid excessive sunlight because the rays can damage the skin, and also cause skin cancer. One can apply sunscreen when going outdoors, wear linen that covers most parts of the skin, or carry an umbrella. Halle Berry, one of the actresses mentioned earlier, reported that she is “careful with the sun”. She credits this as helping to keep her skin radiant.

They Have Good Hygiene

They maintain hygiene by taking a bath at least twice a day. It is important to hydrate the skin from outside, as well as inside, to keep it flawless. Cleansing the skin at least twice daily is very important. However, excessive washing is discouraged. This is because it can remove the natural oils that help to nourish skin. It is advisable to rinse the skin using cold water to keep the pores closed after cleansing. This prevents the foreign materials from getting access to the skin, as they can be a source of infection.

They Take Care Of Their Acne

They ensure that there is proper care of acne and pimples. Popping of a pimple is very tempting, but this will only result in redness, inflammation, and scars. The infected area may be pushed further through touching. This can cause the appearance of more pimples. Blemishes will take more time to heal than a pimple itself. The scars caused by fingering the pimples may leave spots that take a lifetime to heal or clear away.

They Exfoliate

They concentrate on moisturizing, cleansing, toning, and exfoliation. Exfoliating the skin is important since it helps to remove the dead cells from the skin. It is advisable to exfoliate the skin periodically. This can be done using natural ingredients like oats, lentil powder, Bengal gram flour, and orange peel. Exfoliation aids in removing dust, blackheads, impurities, and dead cells, leaving it flawless and smooth. Exfoliation also helps to clean the clogged hair follicles and skin pores, preventing the breakout of acne and pimples. Regular exfoliation enables the skin to be able to absorb serums and moisturizers that are applied on the skin.

They Use Toners

They ensure that the three basic steps to make the skin shiny and flawless are maintained. These are toning, moisturizing, and cleansing. Toning is done after cleansing in order to restore the PH of the skin. The skin toners that are healthy will provide the skin with substances that help to repair it. This includes ceramides, antioxidants, glycerine, and fatty acids. Toning the skin helps in cleansing the deep pores and reducing the open pores, leaving one with a younger, fresher, and smoother appearance. It is important to tone regularly the skin as it helps one to be able to deal with acne. Cleansing causes small gaps to appear, and this can be a gateway for impurities. Toning provides the skin with an added layer of protection because of tightening the cell gaps that are left behind after cleansing.

They Remove Makeup Before Sleep

The people who have flawless skin ensure they remove makeup before sleep. Most women sleep with their makeup on because they are too tired. Makeup helps to enhance attractiveness and radiance of the skin, but it is also filled with harsh chemicals that can harm it. When makeup is left on the skin, it can increase acne and pimples by clogging the pores. Therefore, it is very important to remove the skin before one goes to bed on a nightly basis.

They Avoid Stress

The people who have flawless skin have learned the art of leaving stressful conditions behind. Most of them know how to relieve stress by taking vacations and having a good time. Stress hormones increase the production of oil, which leads to acne. Sleeping for 7-8 hours is important for one to remain active and also have glowing skin.

They Exercise

They know the importance of exercise in making one have youthful, flawless, and radiant skin. Exercise helps to increase oxygen and blood flow to the skin. This neutralizes the free radicals that damage the skin. Exercise helps to cleanse the skin from the inside, and this radiates to the outside making one look flawless.

They Take Vitamin C

People who have flawless skin know the importance of taking vitamin C every day. Vitamin C aids to prevent aging signs, as well as enhance the complexion. Daily intake of vitamin C will help to enhance the brightness of the skin, increase production of collagen, and prevent acne. Foods that provide the body with vitamin C include pineapple, strawberries, black currants, kale, kiwi, and other citrus fruits.

In Conclusion

The daily skin care routine will involve money-saving ideas like living a healthy lifestyle, healthy eating, and using natural products on the face. It is important to take a balanced diet and drink plenty of water daily. The other things that can be done to ensure the skin remains flawless include avoiding excessive sunlight, toning, cleansing, moisturizing, exfoliation and acne care.

Why Assuming Positive Intent Is an Amazing Productivity Driver

Why Assuming Positive Intent Is an Amazing Productivity Driver

Assuming positive intent is an important contributor to quality of life.

Most people appreciate the dividends such a mindset produces in the realm of relationships. How can relationships flourish when you don’t assume intentions that may or may not be there? And how their partner can become an easier person to be around as a result of such a shift? Less appreciated in the GTD world, however, is the productivity aspect of this “assume positive intent” perspective.

Most of us are guilty of letting our minds get distracted, our energy sapped, or our harmony compromised by thinking about what others woulda, coulda, shoulda.  How we got wronged by someone else.  How a friend could have been more respectful.  How a family member could have been less selfish.

However, once we evolve to understanding the folly of this mindset, we feel freer and we become more productive professionally due to the minimization of unhelpful, distracting thoughts.

The leap happens when we realize two things:

  1. The self serving benefit from giving others the benefit of the doubt.
  2. The logic inherent in the assumption that others either have many things going on in their lives paving the way for misunderstandings.

Needless to say, this mindset does not mean that we ought to not confront people that are creating havoc in our world.  There are times when we need to call someone out for inflicting harm in our personal lives or the lives of others.

Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of Pepsi, says it best in an interview with Fortune magazine:

My father was an absolutely wonderful human being. From ecent emailhim I learned to always assume positive intent. Whatever anybody says or does, assume positive intent. You will be amazed at how your whole approach to a person or problem becomes very different. When you assume negative intent, you’re angry. If you take away that anger and assume positive intent, you will be amazed. Your emotional quotient goes up because you are no longer almost random in your response. You don’t get defensive. You don’t scream. You are trying to understand and listen because at your basic core you are saying, ‘Maybe they are saying something to me that I’m not hearing.’ So ‘assume positive intent’ has been a huge piece of advice for me.

In business, sometimes in the heat of the moment, people say things. You can either misconstrue what they’re saying and assume they are trying to put you down, or you can say, ‘Wait a minute. Let me really get behind what they are saying to understand whether they’re reacting because they’re hurt, upset, confused, or they don’t understand what it is I’ve asked them to do.’ If you react from a negative perspective – because you didn’t like the way they reacted – then it just becomes two negatives fighting each other. But when you assume positive intent, I think often what happens is the other person says, ‘Hey, wait a minute, maybe I’m wrong in reacting the way I do because this person is really making an effort.

“Assume positive intent” is definitely a top quality of life’s best practice among the people I have met so far. The reasons are obvious. It will make you feel better, your relationships will thrive and it’s an approach more greatly aligned with reality.  But less understood is how such a shift in mindset brings your professional game to a different level.

Not only does such a shift make you more likable to your colleagues, but it also unleashes your talents further through a more focused, less distracted mind.
