1. Adequate amount of beauty sleep
Start from the easiest of all the lifestyle habits that are taking an adequate amount of sleep. Taking sufficient naps will also be very helpful as it gives your facial muscles and your body to relax. Our body needs six to eight hours of sleep to heal and replenish. Sleep allows your skin to rejuvenate and helps you to attain the blinding glow that everyone would get covetous of. There is a reason why it is called beauty sleep. So go and crash on the bed and have that glow without actually putting any effort.
2. Avoid stress
Believe it or not, your skin gets affected most by taking the stress and letting it take control over your mind. And in the long run, it will fasten the aging process as you look older than you actually are. Also, stress can cause skin breakouts. When your mind is stress-free and relaxed, your skin looks better and relaxed too. As it is the mind that controls all the body functions. To manage stress, you can try meditation or indulge yourself in your hobby or listen to your favorite music playlist or spend time with your loved ones. Taking a break and slowing down, giving yourself some time to cherish what you possess can play an important role in avoiding stress.
3. Treat your skin right
a. Apply sunscreen- You should never overlook or underestimate the power of good sunscreen as it prevents harsh effects of the harmful Ultra Violet rays.
b. Handle with care- Do not ever rub your skin vigorously. Always handle it gently and pat it dry instead of rubbing it roughly.
c. Avoid direct exposure under the sun- Try to have your skin from the wrath of harsh sunlight by covering your skin. You can do it by wearing full sleeves clothes or by covering it using a soft cloth piece.
4. Avoid smoking and limit the amount of alcohol
Smoking is not only injurious to health but it is harmful to our skin too. The same goes for alcohol too. As they both make your skin sag as it affects the skin by making it lose its elasticity and can cause dehydration in the skin resulting in early aging of the skin.
5. Eat clean
I need not tell you about the enormous benefits of eating clean and following a healthy diet. They are some superfoods that you can include in your diet and make your skin look fresh and better like flax seeds, fish, the food rich in omega-three fatty acid and vitamin C. Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, egg whites, and whole grain. Avoid fast foods, fried foods, and sugar. Because whatever you put inside it will show up on your skin directly. Having a healthy diet doesn’t mean you have to eat less. Just have the right kind of nutrition with the right amount. You can even take supplements of the nutrient by consulting a doctor.
6. Power of yoga and exercise
Trust me when I say this adding yoga and exercise to your lifestyle would change your entire fitness game. It would keep your body as well as your mind fit. It also helps in distressing all the stress and anxiety you possess. There are some certain facial exercises if you want to try something for your face too. Add this to your routine and your skin will thank you for this. It will render you that inner glow that you have always wished for.
7. Hydrate yourself
Drench your inner system into the water baby because why not! There is no other better way to hydrate yourself other than drinking enough water. When your skin is hydrated, you glow from within without applying any highlighter. A person should drink at least eight ounces of water to be hydrated. If you find it difficult then try taking it with other stuff like lemon, honey, etc. So go and grab a glass of water right now!
No matter how much you spend on serums, lotions, and other beauty products to layer your skin, without having a healthy lifestyle, all of this is going in vain. I hope you do understand the role of our lifestyle in shaping the health of our skin. Follow a healthy lifestyle to attain #wokeuplikethis look without any filters or any makeup.
