4 Natural Tips for Beautiful, Glowing Skin

Use these four natural tips for your daily skin care routine for more naturally beautiful and glowing skin.

We’ll let you in on a secret. Glowing skin isn’t just about what you put on your face; it’s about a whole lot more.

Is your skin looking dull, dry or dehydrated? Thankfully just a few simple changes to your lifestyle can quickly and easily have you on the road to glowing skin.

Here is a step by step guide that will allow you to achieve the radiant skin you have always wanted:

Get the right amount of zzz’s

For starters, the right amount of sleep is key as this is the time when the skin repairs itself. Little sleep can mean excessive levels of cortisol, a hormone that can hinder how smooth and elastic your skin is. Furthermore, a lack of sleep can also cause your blood vessels to dilate, which leads to dark circles.

So, how much beauty sleep do you need exactly? Seven to nine hours of sleep every night is ideal.

Relax and overcome stress

Stress is also thought to be linked to your skin’s appearance. When stress is on your mind, it can lead to acne, eczema, rosacea, hives, and vitiligo (depigmented white spots on the skin).

Even though you can’t completely avoid stress (it’s a natural reality), you can control how you overcome it. So, find a technique that works best for you and your lifestyle. Relaxation techniques such as meditation, yoga or tai chi could relax your skin as well as your brain.

Maintain an active lifestyle

Staying active not only helps keep you in shape but can improve your skin’s appearance as well, thanks to the increased blood flow nourishing your skin. To maintain your glowing complexion after a workout, don’t forget to clean your skin after you exercise; as perspiration can irritate your skin.

A non-abrasive, alcohol free cleanser is best, and will offer you the results you need, such as the AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Brightening Cleanser.

Maintain a healthy and well-balanced diet

While the relationship is complex, diet can also play a part in how your skin looks. A diet that is rich in fruits and veggies is ideal for healthy and radiant skin.

The top foods for healthy skin, which should be a part of your diet, include: calcium-rich foods, such as Greek yogurt or low-fat milk, and low-fat or lean meat, poultry or fish. Combined with your daily skin care routine, these foods can help keep your skin glowing and looking its best.

Drinking plenty of water and staying well hydrated is also important. This will help ensure your skin looks healthy and has minimal moisture loss.
