The glowing skin secrets lie in the practice of proper skincare. There are certain things you can add to this routine to shine bright like a star every day. Read on to know some of the best glowing skin secrets.
Did you know your glowing skin secrets are actually enclosed in your kitchen’s closet? Use natural ingredients in your pantry to get young and plump skin. Some of the best natural ingredients for healthy skin are:
Raw honey is your skin’s best friend. It nourishes your skin and hydrates it. Just apply 3 tablespoons of raw honey on your face, leave it for 25-30 minutes and wash it with lukewarm water. A massage of a tablespoon of honey mixed with the same amount of sugar helps in exfoliating the skin. Repeating these procedures twice a week can have considerably good effects.
The best skin glowing secrets lie in the hydrating, astringent, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties of aloe vera and rosewater. Squeeze out the gel from fresh aloe vera leaves, grind it and mix in a little rose water. Put the mixture in a spraying bottle and spray the refreshing mixture on your face twice a day. It soothes the skin, banishes blemishes and redness, heals scars, prevents acne, and balances the ph level of the skin. Overproduction of sebum makes skin oily and gives way to pimples popping out. Eww! Well, use rosewater which is one of the ways to get rid of oily skin as the rosewater controls the skin’s sebum production.
It’s an old saying that you are what you eat. A healthy body from inside reflects in the radiance of the skin. So make sure you get a balanced nutritious diet. Increase the intake of sappy and juicy fruits. Steer clear of oily food and junky stuff. You can say they may be a paradise for your taste buds but a big turnoff for your skin. Eat your greens, guys! Ask your nanna, the greens have always been one of the key ingredients to their glowing skin secrets.
Additionally, add proteins to your diet. Proteins are specifically good for your liver and a healthy liver ensures fresher skin. The liver is responsible to flush out the toxins from the body. If you have a healthy functioning liver, your skin will get a boost automatically.
No beautician or dermatologist can emphasize enough the importance of water for your skin. Watch the interviews of your favorite stars to learn that water comes first in their list of perfectly glowing skin secrets. Eight to ten glasses of water (about 2.5-3 liters) are essential to get clearer skin.
Water removes the puffiness on your face and evens out your complexion. It fights off pigmentation and acne marks. It is necessary for maintaining the ph level and cleanse the body.
Moreover, add splashing cold water on the face to your morning regime. Did you know that the famous American model and actress, Marilyn Monroe used to splash cold water 20 times a day? Yes, it was one of her glowing skin secrets. Splashing cold water or gently rubbing ice on the face for about 20 minutes improves blood circulation in that area and gives you the blush you deem for. Beware, not to wash your face every other hour for it will get the skin rid of natural oils required for its nourishment. Washing your face with a mild face wash once a day is enough if you don’t want a flaky skin.
Excessive use of makeup products can increase the production of sebum leading to acne and pimples. No honey, we are not asking you to abandon that beautiful makeup. But never, we repeat, NEVER sleep with your makeup on. As soon as you get back home, remove it. Use micellar water to remove the makeup. Rinse your face with lukewarm water. Splash it once with cold water to close the pores, and apply any moisturizer to enliven your skin.
For smooth and youthful skin, massage your face for ten minutes before going to bed. Take 2-3 drops of olive oil and massage your face with it. Get a face roller or use your hands. Massage the face in anti-clockwise circular motions. Use the tips of the third and fourth fingers to massage your temples. This improves blood circulation and prevents premature wrinkles and pigmentation. Get an eight hour night sleep to let the body repair damaged cells so you can wake up to naturally radiant skin.
