15 Precious Tips for Beautiful and Radiant Skin

15 Precious Tips for Beautiful and Radiant Skin

Does your skin look tired and washed out? if you long for soft, glowing skin, don’t fret. There is still hope. However, getting your skin in good condition is no different than your body shape. It doesn’t just happen. Having beautiful skin requires work, but it’s certainly an attainable goal. Follow  these simple guidelines and you will soon be on your way to having vibrant, healthy looking skin.

1. Cool It Down

While a good, steaming shower can feel wonderful, the excess heat can wreck havoc on your skin. When the water is too hot, it removes natural oils from your skin and causes it to feel dry and look dull. Try turning the heat down when in the shower and opt for a more lukewarm temperature instead.

2. Steer Clear of Dyes and Fragrances

Some ingredients in makeup can be harsh. Select products that have as few ingredients as possible to avoid potential problems. It is best to refrain from all facial products that contain dyes and fragrances, as these elements are more likely to cause dryness, redness, and breakouts.

3. Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen

Ninety percent of wrinkles are caused by sun exposure, so sunscreen is a crucial part of having healthy, glowing skin. Choose a suscreen that is 30 SPF or higher and offers broad-spectrum protection. Broad-spectrum protection guards your skin against both UVA rays which cause premature aging and the UVB rays that can lead to skin cancer.

Don’t forget to use sunscreen on cloudy days and in the winter months when the sun can reflect off sidewalks, snow, and buildings and can cause damage to your skin. Re-apply sunscreen every two to three hours when spending time outside and even more often if swimming.

4. Exercice

Exercice is good for every single part of the body. Including your skin. Not only does exercice boost circulation and increase blood flow but when you sweat, toxins in the skin are eliminated as well.

5. Use Serum

Serum is a skin care product that contains high concentrations of various active ingredients. Apply a small amount of serum to freshly washed skin, then apply sunscreen to lock in hydration. Serum offers needed antioxidants and boosts collagen for beautiful skin. The key is to use serum correctly and consistently for a firm, youthful, glowing appearance.

6. Wash Brushes and Sponges Regularly

Bacteria and dirt can build up on makeup brushes and sponges causing breakouts. To clean them, add a few drops of facial cleaner or your favorite shampoo to some lukewarm water. Wash, rince and then pat or air-dry your makeup tools. Wash powder brushes and sponges every two weeks, while foundation applicators will need to be cleaned weekly.

7. Exfoliate Weekly

Exfoliating rids your skin of dead cells that could otherwise cause blemishes and can give your skin a dull appearance. Exfoliate on a weekly basis to reveal fresh, new skin underneath.

8. Drink Soy Milk

If you don’t care for soy milk, any food or drink product containing soy will do. Remember as with anything, moderation is key. Drinking or eating soy boosts collagen production, reverses sun damage and can help tighten sagging skin. There are also skin care products that contain soy. Apply soy topically offers softening and smoothing effects and can even out skin tone.

9. Use Retinol Daily

Retinol is an anti-aging product that supports skin efficacy, boosts collagen production, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Retinol treats acne, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Also a related research has shown that retinol can reverse cancerous and abnormal growth as well as other forms of sun damage. Sunlight can deactivate retinol and render it useless, so always apply it to your skin at night.

10. Avoid Dairy Products

Cow hormones stimulate pores and oil glands which in turn can cause acne. If you don’t feel you can live without milk, try switching to skimmed. Skimmed milk is less concentrated than whole dairy and less likely to cause breakouts.

11. Sanitize your Smartphone

Most smartphones are germ-infested and full of bacteria. Use antibacterial wipes to clean your smartphone, at least, two or three times a day to help keep all the disgusting stuff off your face.

12. Use Olive or Coconut Oil

Both olive oil and coconut oil have loads of nutrients that infuse with the skin leaving it more hydrated, and offers a subtle, healthy glow. These products can be found in many skin care products or can be used in conjunction with a home remedy treatment.

13. Eat a Handful of Nuts

Brazilian nuts have selenium which increases elasticity and helps you avoid skin cancer. Walnuts contain omega-3 and fatty acids that fight breakout and inflammation. Macadamias offer quality oils and fatty acids for skin repair and rejuvenation.

14. Drink Water

Is there any problem drinking water cannot help? Your body is made up of 90 percent water so it just makes sense that your skin would thrive on the clear stuff and even more if opting for alkaline water known for its ultra-hydrating vertues, its skin rejuvenating abilities and its antioxidant properties (anti-aging and anti-disease). But before you start sipping the trendy drink, read up on others’ experiences on facebook .

15. Get a Good  Night’s Sleep

Lack of sleep can wreck havoc on the skin bringing on dark circles, puffy eyes, and pale looking skin. In addition, too little sleep can cause the body to release too much of the stress hormone cortisol. Excess amounts of cortisol trigger inflammation, which breaks down collagen, a protein that keeps the skin smooth and elastic. On the other hand, a good’s night sleep can rejuvenate the skin. Also, cells renew themselves at night, so getting enough rest is an essential part of having healthy, glowing skin.

Final Words

Let’s face it. Most people aren’t born with perfect, gorgeous skin. Nevertheless, having beautiful, glowing skin is possible with a few simple, inexpensive lifestyle changes. You can start by eating a healthy, balanced diet, getting plenty of sleep and exercice, and remembering to apply the above-mentioned skin perfecting care tips and advices.
