Having a glowing beautiful skin can be expensive. But here are 10 tips on how to get beautiful, glowing skin, with little or no money.
- Wash your face at night.
Over the course of the day, makeup, dirt, and oil build up on your face. Make cleansing your skin part of your bedtime routine.
- Use a gentle cleanser for your face.
Avoid the use of bar soap. Remember that you want to clean your skin, not completely strip it of all oils — if it feels tight and dry after washing, you’re using something too strong. I recommend an organic cleanser specific for your skin type.
- Rinse off by splashing water on your face.
Using a washcloth or rag to roughly wipe your skin clean can irritate it more. Instead, bend your face over the sink, cup your hands together, and bring up small amounts of water to splash over your face. About 10 splashes should do it.
- Pat dry.
Don’t roughly rub your skin dry with a towel. Instead, dry it with small, gentle pats or let it air dry.
- Smooth on some moisturizer.
Using lotion in the morning acts as a primer for your makeup, helping it “stick” to your face throughout the day. Moisturizing at night helps your skin repair itself and stave off wrinkles.
Using quality organic products will not only moisturize your skin both day and night, but also prevent sun damage on your skin, it’s one of the best things you can do for glowing skin over the long term.
- Exfoliate once a week.
If your skin tends to be dry and flaky, a weekly exfoliation can clear out dead skin cells. An organic Exfoliating Scrub is good for this routine, gently apply and don’t rub it roughly into your skin.
- Drink up.
Aim to get 6 to 8 glasses of water a day. The water will clear your skin and make it glow because it makes it easier for your body to flush out toxins quickly.
- Eat a healthy diet.
Healthy proteins and nutritious fruits and vegetables go a long way toward making skin glow.
- Eat less sugar and salt.
Try to consume less than 45g of sugar on a daily basis, and cut down on salty foods. Eating too much salt can make your face look bloated.
- Work out.
Cardio makes your skin glow because it stimulates blood flow. It’s also healthy for your body and will make you stronger. You’ll see results immediately and long term, too.
