Six Tips To Achieve Glowing Skin Without Visiting A Clinic

In this era of globalization, for the quintessential working women following a regular skin care regime seems like a completely unattainable task . Thus, they would rather invest obscene amounts of money buying those celebrity marketed anti-aging products or take a quick appointment in the skin clinic to get rid of their skin trouble almost instantly. However, remember there is a reason it is called natural, because the effects are long term and obviously easy on your pockets. Hence here are six tips to achieve a glowing skin without visiting that clinic:

Apply Sun-blocks always

Sun, the most natural source of vitamin D which is essential for the human body, however the UV Rays are the cause for most of the skin problems ranging from early aging, to tanning to skin darkening. No matter where you go and what time of the day it is, always wear a sun block. Choose a sun-block that suits your skin type, preferably a SPF 40 and apply it in a diluted form with your daily moisturizer. And you are ready to shine.

Cleanse, Moisturize and Exfoliate

This should be a normal skin care regime for any women who want to have that glowing skin. Living in the 21st century amidst a hurricane of pollution, your skin needs to breathe as much as you do. Cleanse your face twice daily, first with water and then with a mild cleanser, following the process up with an astringent free toner and finally exfoliate it with walnut or apricot based scrubs. Do not forget to complete the process by adding on a little bit of moisturizer once you finish the cleansing routine.

Use Face-Packs

Apart from the regular skin care regime, don’t forget to apply a herbal face-pack containing the ingredients of neem, sandalwood, turmeric or otherwise atleast twice a week. The anti-aging face-packs again as available in the market, are with slightly heavy chemical composition, however may work wonders if applied at intervals of two weeks or similar gaps.

Eat Healthy

Your skin reflects what you eat, hence a sick body would reflect a problematic skin irrespective of whichever anti-aging products you might be applying. Consume atleast 2 litres of water on a daily basis to detoxify your skin cells. Further your diet should include atleast 4 fruits, 3 vegetables and daily supplements of protein and vitamins. The vegetables should preferably be citric and colored.

Avoid Addictions

Addictions are not good for your skin or your body for that matter, be it in the form of caffeine, nicotine or alcohol as the case may be. Cut down at the earliest if absolute abstinence is not your call. The intake of caffeine should be restricted to 250ml per day, and so far as alcohol and nicotine is concerned the consumption should be restricted to the least. Handle your stress in a more productive manner, opt for counseling if necessary.

Exercise and Meditate

Body sweat works wonders for one’s body, since it releases the excess of oils and thereby acts as a natural detoxifying agent. Thus it is recommended that every women should take out atleast 30 minutes from their busy schedule and engage in some routine exercise, meditation and yoga. Remember if you are at peace with your body and mind, your skin would reflect the same.

The above mentioned skin care regimes have been suggested keeping in mind the daily lives of millions of women. A little bit of discipline and love towards your own self, and that mirror would most definitely smile back at you.
