Try these simple tips for naturally healthy, glowing skin.
Eat Nutrient Rich Foods
To improve your skin start by eating well. Eat simple natural foods, fresh fruits and vegetables which include vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Proteins will help to tone and repair your skin, try eating nuts and seeds, foods rich in Omega 3, such as oily fish, walnuts or flaxseeds to help hydrate and moisturise the skin.
Drink Enough Water
Aim to drink 2 litres of water a day to hydrate, tone and moisturise the skin from the inside.
The skin renews and repairs itself as you sleep preventing dull sagging skin. Always cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin before you sleep to avoid clogging the pores. Leaving make up on the skin can cause the skin to age quicker. Try adding some olive oil to a cotton pad and massaging it into the skin to gently remove traces of make up and dirt. Follow with a natural toner and moisturiser.
Exercise regularly to boost circulation and reduce stress levels which can show on the skin.
Always wear sunscreen with a high SPF, even on a cloudy day to protect the skin from UV rays that can lead to ageing of the skin.
