10 Steps To Clearer Skin
At some stage in all of our lives, we want clearer, fresher, younger-looking skin. Well, it can be achieved without losing a ton of money, and it can happen naturally! What you must do is persevere and stick to your routines suited for your skin type, and your skin will begin to look lovely fresh and glowing in no time. Follow the steps below:
Keeping your skin clean is your first priority! You must cleanse your face morning and night with a gentle natural cleanser. This will rid the skin of dirt and grime. If you have oily/ acne-prone skin you may also want to use an antibacterial ingredient like tea tree oil.
After cleansing your skin pat dry. Then spray a fine toning mist over your face to cool and help close the pores while they are clean. Let this mist dry on your face. Toners usually have ingredients that will also help with specific skin problems such as acne or dryness depending on what you use.
When the toner has dried apply a very small amount of moisturiser over your entire face and neck. Look for a moisturiser with ingredients that are suited to your skin type. For example, tea tree oil is great for oily skin and aloe vera is great for dry skin. These ingredients are gentle but very effective at clearing and hydrating your skin.
Getting the right amount of restful sleep your body needs nightly will reflect in the state of your skin. Seven hours is generally adequate. Not enough sleep over time will result in problems that are hard to cure such as loose skin under the eyes and dark circles.
The food you eat is of the utmost importance for healthy, clear skin! Make sure you are getting a good amount of fresh fruits and vegetables and limit your red meat intake to three or four times a week. Foods that are easily digested will help your system keep your skin nourished and promote fresh, new cell growth. Drink lots and lots of water too!
Cleanse the skin on your body and face with a weekly scrub. When using a body scrub, start at your feet and work towards your heart, this helps eliminate toxins. Doing it in the opposite direction will push the toxins back into your system. Use a very gentle facial scrub on your face and neck as these areas can be easily damaged.
Try an Aspirin face mask! This mask is fantastic for anyone with large pores, pimples, and acne. Crush about 6 aspirin tablets into a powder, add a teaspoon of warm water and mix to a paste. Then apply to a cleansed face. Leave for twenty minutes to work its way into the skin and then rinse off and apply a light moisturiser. Try this weekly, after a face scrub.
Once a month use a home steam treatment to thoroughly draw out impurities from the face. Add boiling water to a basin or bowl and add two drops of tea tree oil. Place your face over this with a towel covering your head and gently let the steam open and cleanse the pores. Be careful not to let the steam burn your face. Finish with a cold face wash or toner to close your pores.
Get out into the fresh air and take a walk, swim in the sea, ride a bike, and have fun! The exercise will boost your system and your skin will love it.
Take a fish oil supplement daily. Cultures that eat a lot of fish have clearer skin, the fish oil helps eliminate toxins from the body which is fantastic for your skin!
These ten easy tips will help you get that clear glowing skin you so desperately want. Remember to make the lifestyle changes you need to and enjoy the benefits that will come with it! A fresher, clearer, more youthful-looking complexion.
