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.

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

1. Camping

A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

2. Staycation

You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

3. Island Getaway

People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

4. Fancy Resort

Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

5. Road Trip

The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

6. Charter a Boat

If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

8. Themed Retreats

There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

9. Working Honeymoon

Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
