How do I get healthy skin is probably the number 1 question from clients at the spa. Everyone is different and so the answer may be different for every person. Healthy skin is a combination of nutrition, lifestyle, and products used on your skin. One thing is for certain, your skin is a reflection of your health. When you are healthy, your skin is healthy. Likewise, when your skin is a mess, you need to listen to your body. It is telling you that you need to change something with either your skin care regimen, your lifestyle or your nutrition (i.e. food).
4 Tips to Get Healthy Skin
Getting healthy skin can be a trial and error process both from a nutrition aspect and from a skin care regimen. Working with your body and listening to signals from your body will help you fine-tune your skin care routine.
Know your skin type
It’s imperative that you know the skin type you have so that you understand its behavior in order to use the best ways for clearing it. Basically, there are three broad categories of skin types; normal skin, dry skin and oily skin. All these types require different treatment and this knowledge is important while trying to get a healthy skin naturally.
Drink a lot of water
Water is very crucial for the health of the skin. It hydrates the skin and makes it supple thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles and giving you a brighter, younger look. It also eliminates the toxins that clog the skin pores. The toxins are responsible for attracting other foreign particles which inhibit the growth and development of healthy skin.
Avoid chemical cleansers
Instead of using harsh chemical cleansers, use the natural cleansers as they are milder and they won’t have any harmful effects on your skin, like over drying. Organic cleansers are known to clear the skin much faster and they are more effective than most of the unnatural cleansers that are available on the market today.
Proper diet and nutrition
Adjust your diet to include the foods that are known to improve the health of the skin. Eat plenty of fruits, nuts, vegetables and seeds. These foods are rich in antioxidants which fight the free radicals that affect the appearance of the skin. Avoid artificial or processed foods because they lack any nutritional value.
Getting healthy skin naturally is a process. It takes time and diligence to achieve. While doing so, never use any method that can jeopardize the #bellahealth and safety of your skin. Keeping a journal of what you use and the foods you eat can help you understand how your skin is responding to your skin care regimen and your diet.
