There’s no major secret for gaining younger looking skin and our top 10 tips for glowing skin will show you how to achieve this goal quite easily.
In the quest for younger looking skin many people wrongly assume that you need to spend a fortune on skincare products to achieve radiant, glowing skin.
The following glowing skin tips will show you how to get glowing skin and achieve a more vibrant complexion the natural way.
1) Eat Food That Encourages Glowing Skin
The foods you eat affect the speed at which your skin ages. A diet for glowing skin includes all the foods that are rich in essential vitamins and minerals.
Fruits and vegetables contain many skin enhancing goodies and these should form a large part of your glowing skin diet.
Unrefined and unprocessed foods i.e. foods that are in the most natural state as possible are also vital if you want to maintain youthful, vibrant skin.
If you stick to a nourishing diet of natural foods for a few days you will see and difference to your skin and feel the difference to your overall health within a short period of time.
The quality of the foods you put into your body shows up on your skin so if you eat highly processed foods or foods high in fat, salt and sugar you will find yourself with a dull, lifeless complexion.
Stick to natural, vitamin-packed foods and you’ll be rewarded with a glowing complexion.
2) Don’t Overeat
Eating too much can age your body and your skin, with overweight people experiencing far more health problems than those who maintain a healthy weight.
Consuming more food than your body needs can lead to a build up of waste matter and increase the production of bodily toxins. These toxins can lead a dull, gray looking complexion.
3) Hydrate Your Skin From Within
Water hydrates your skin from within, helping to purify your system and maintain adequate moisture levels in the skin cells. If we become dehydrated our skin will become dull and fine lines and wrinkles may become more pronounced.
Ideally you should try to drink 1.5 to 2 liters of water throughout the day.
People who increase their water intake to a safe level (too much water is not good for you) find that the overall appearance of their skin improves and a more glowing complexion occurs naturally.
Water can also help to banish those annoying dark circles found under the eyes.
4) Kick The Bad Habits
Caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes – they will all compromise your skin. If you want a healthier looking complexion avoiding these skin sapping habits is vital.
Smoking not only causes premature wrinkles but leads to a duller looking complexion, alcohol and caffeine dehydrate the skin and can be a cause of premature skin aging.
5) Banish Dull Looking Skin – Exfoliate
Exfoliating your skin is a great way to achieve healthy glowing skin.
When you use a gentle exfoliator, preferably a home made one, you remove the build up of dead skin cells that leave your skin looking pallid.
Exfoliating also encourages the renewal of your skin cells, which leads to brighter looking, radiant skin.
6) Exercise To Achieve A Healthy Glow
Exercise keeps you fit, prevents premature aging and improves the health of your bones, it also improves your complexion.
When you exercise you increase the circulation and blood flow in your body and this has a positive effect on your complexion as oxygen and essential nutrients are delivered more effectively to your skin cells.
7) Get Your Beauty Sleep
Getting enough sleep and adequate ‘chill-out’ time will also improve your complexion. It’s no secret that some top models take a quick power nap directly before a photo shoot as sleep rejuvenates and replenishes your skin and the results show on your face.
Sleep encourages skin cell regeneration, where your old dead skin cells are replaced with new ones and this process occurs faster when you are asleep, so make sure you get enough if you want to achieve a dewy, model-like complexion.
8) Relax And Let Yourself Glow
Stress can affect your skin in a number of ways ways. Firstly stress can lead to insomnia and as we know sleep is a powerful beauty tool when it comes to achieving glowing skin. Lack of sleep will leave your complexion pale and puffy.
Secondly when you are stressed your body produces higher levels of a hormone known as cortisol. Too much cortisol in your system can lead to spots and accelerate skin damage and therefore the aging process.
Tackle your stress by being kind to yourself and taking time out to relax. Talking your worries over with a good friend or your partner can be helpful as can practicing relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation and breathing exercises.
9) Brighten And Enliven – Practice Facial Exercises
It’s a little known secret that facial exercises can help you to achieve glowing skin.
Most people associate the exercises with firming and toning the facial skin but one of the very pleasant side effects of performing face exercises is that your complexion also becomes brighter and more radiant looking.
10) Make Your Own Home Remedies For Glowing Skin
