Detoxify and cleanse your body naturally

Go for natural skin products
All of us have different skin – dry, oily or both depending on the season. Using expensive and high branded skintips for healthy skin products does not mean that you are getting rid of all the dirt, wrinkles blemishes, etc., instead you are loading your skin with harmful and toxic chemicals. The best way to select the right skincare product is to rush for the label, which entails all the contained ingredients. Mild moisturizers do well for summers, while thicker ones are good for winters. So choose wisely!
Go for non-toxic cleaning products
If anyone says that choose non-toxic cleaning products for your skin, but is it that easy to select one and use? Why not to use homemade cleaning products, which would be both safe to use and not expensive. The skin absorbs all that comes on it, so go gentle.
Get enough of vitamin C
Vitamin C is naturally present in many foods and is water soluble. It is helpful in biosynthesis of collagen, acts a potent antioxidant and boosts your immune function. To get rid of blemishes, dark circles, wrinkles and discoloration, consume a vitamin C rich diet. All citrus fruits, cabbage, kiwi, red pepper, green pepper, spinach, tomato, etc. are few examples of foods rich in vitamin C.
Eat fats good for your health
Both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are good for you. Avocados, walnuts, olives, natural peanut butter, flaxseeds, soymilk, tofu, nuts (pecans, almonds, hazelnuts, cashews and macadamia nuts), seeds (pumpkin, sunflower and sesame) and fatty fish (herring, salmon, sardines, mackerel, trout and tuna) are few examples of healthy fats. Remember, not all fats are bad – some are good, some lay in-between and some are really bad!
Avoid having sugary foods
Sugar causes damage to your collagen and elastin, resulting in wrinkles and dullness. To get a clear healthy skin, quit sugar for few days. You will notice the change yourself. You will be surprised to see vanished blemishes, blackheads, shiny skin along with reduced waistline. Free your skin from inflammation, redness and rashes and free radicals too.
Engage in social activities to lower down your anxiety and stress
Networking, social activities and practicing yoga and meditation with same group people will not only energize your system but will make you happy. The happier you feel the clear and glowing skin you have. Let not stress take toll on your skin. Talk openly to your friends; share your troubles and worries. See a changed inside-out you.
Get plenty of sleep
Increased inflammatory response, more acne, itchy and dry skin, increased skin sensitivity, eczema and psoriasis are few problems caused when you are not taking enough sleep. Sleep is the time when your skin gets time to repair and rejuvenate itself. So make it a habit to sleep for 7–9 hours daily for a glowing complexion and skin. Nothing will help your look if you do not get enough sleep. Right diet and right timings of sleeping are best for your skin and makes you look even younger.
Remove makeup before pulling your sheets
Remember to wipe off the makeup before bed time. When you sleep, your skin breathes. If you do not remove your makeup, your skin pores will remain closed and promotes the growth of yeast on your skin, as many products are laid down with harsh chemicals attracting dirt and thus clog your skin pores causing acne and pimples. So don’t you think it is essential to remove all the makeup with mild cleansing milk or a cotton ball with olive oil?
Of all, exercise regularly
Must be thinking that how exercising can help your skin. Foremost, understand that exercising and physical activities increase the nutrients and oxygen circulation in the body. This helps in flushing out of toxins via sweat. Thus, you get a clearer and firmer healthy skin. Remember to smile always – it is the best facial exercise.
