The Best Beauty Secrets For Healthy, Glowing Skin

Your skin is easily one of your most precious commodities, so you want to do everything you can to take care of it. Here are a dozen professional tips that will help you achieve the gorgeous, glowing skin you’re after:

Healthy Glowing Skin

Enjoy More Water

You may think the daily recommendation for water intake seems high, but your body needs it. First thing in the morning, your internal organs benefit from a tall glass of water, because they’ve gone the night without. Since your skin is also an organ, it, too, needs constant hydration. On the other hand, the coffee you might be having is a diuretic, meaning it draws water from your body and that’s not going to help with a fresh morning face.

Manage Stress Effectively

Stress beats up your mind and body and if you’re under constant stress, your skin looks dull, dark and sullen. Worse still, stress can prematurely age your skin, adding years to your face. That type of aging is not reversible, short of cosmetic surgery. Although a little stress is a normal part of life for everyone, if you’re under too much, do something about it. Yoga and meditation are two excellent ways to manage stress; you will notice a healthier glow to your complexion within a week or so of doing either.

Try Shaving With (Hair) Conditioner

Shaving is hard enough on skin, and some shaving creams make it harder. If you’re not happy with your current brand (of if you ever run out), try using conditioner. It’s thick and creamy, making the razor slide smoother, and it will leave your skin softer than ever!

Never Go Without Sunscreen

Even when it doesn’t look too sunny outside, the rays are actually penetrating right through the clouds. Particularly on your face, neck and chest, where skin is most vulnerable to sun damage, you need a good SPF everyday. Look for one with a touch of foundation, to make getting ready for the world faster and more efficient every morning. You’ll be protecting your precious, most delicate skin and have a soft glow to boot.

Remember Your Knees And Elbows

Most people focus on the face first, followed by a quick all-over moisturizer. Forgetting to focus on elbows and knees, however, can mean a lot of drying out. These two areas can say a lot about your age; you might look 10 years older if your elbows and knees have that alligator look! Look for a concentrated moisturizer formula and use it on these vulnerable and highly visible areas everyday.

Use Two Shads Of Foundation For Hollywood Sculpting

A single shade of foundation evens and smooths your complexion, but adding in a slightly darker shade under your cheek bones and around the jaw line will give you a professional and sculpted look. Don’t over do it and keep the second shade just a tad more dramatic than the first.

Use What’s In Your Fridge For A Fresh Face

Everyone wakes up with puffy skin and/or shadows under the eyes, but some mornings are much worse than others. If your skin looks like you partied all night, reach in the fridge for fast and effective solutions. Slice cucumber or (raw) potatoes and cover your eyes for about ten minutes. If you’re pressed for time, grab an ice-cube and melt it all over your face, focusing on your puffy eyes. These are all natural ways to offer your skin a little extra TLC when needed.

Use A Blotter For Late Day Oil

Most people experience an accumulating of oil as the day wears on, but too many of them try to solve the problem by caking on more powder. Not only does this look blotchy around your nose, chin and forehead, but it also ruins your powder puffs rather quickly. First, use a tissue or blotting paper made especially for the face first; once your oily deposits are remedied, then it’s safe to lightly powder. Your face will look morning fresh, even though it may be late afternoon.

Treat Your Skin To A Spa Day At Home

While going off to a spa is a wonderful thing, you might be too busy or not have enough “disposable” income to make these visits frequently. Set aside an hour or so on the weekend and really treat your skin to luxury. Start with a bath drizzled with your favorite oil, and finish with your favorite lotions slightly heated in the microwave. Not only does this feel wonderful, it gives your skin a healthy and radiant glow.

Exfoliate Often

Provided you are using a gentle product, exfoliation can, and in most cases, should be done on a daily basis. Your skin accumulates all kinds of debris and particles from the outside world, not to mention makeup and dead skin cells (ew!). Gentle exfoliation rubs it all away, leaving you with a fresh, clean face that’s far less likely to break out. Use an all natural exfoliant with some kind of scrubbing element in it, accompanied by a low-powered brush or loofah.

Go Easy On Daily Moisturizers

To be effective, any product you apply to your skin must be absorbed. That means applying too much does not produce the affect you’d think – of moisturizing more. Lightly cover your face, allowing for full absorption of the product. This of course save you money, too, especially considering how expensive daily moisturizers can be!

Eat Like Your Face Depends On It!

Essentially, your beautiful skin is dependent on a healthy, well-balanced diet. Think of that next time you’re tempted to reach for something too decadent. Your skin needs loads of water and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Eating too much of the “sinful” stuff will show in your complexion – in the worst ways possible!

Unless you were born with perfect skin, taking care of it can be a lot of work. The effort is well worth it, though, when you know you look your best. Employ these beauty secrets for healthy, glowing and enviable skin.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
    up losing months of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

      very good question, but no not yet nobody haven’t hacked my blog. Who knows when it will happen, but I’ll take a backup every time I update or write new posts. Hopefully I’ll never have to use them 🙂

    about starting my very own weblog and was curious what all
    is required to get create? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    could be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
