The Ultimate, Short Guide to Better Skin


Who doesn’t want beautiful glowing skin? When we look in the mirror and see that our skin is radiant and full of vitality, it makes us feel confident. To obtain gorgeous skin, less is often better than more. Use products for your particular your skin type, exercise regularly, drink plenty of water, get enough rest, and follow these helpful tips so that you can have lovely, radiant skin.

Create a Beauty Routine


Women who have beautiful flawless skin have one thing in common, they have a simple daily beauty routine and they stick with it. Always be gentle with your skin. Try not to tug and pull on your skin, especially the delicate part around your eyes. Wash your face with warm water in the morning using a simple natural face wash that works for your skin type. Always moisturize afterward and apply a broad spectrum sunscreen designed for the face with an SPF of at least 15.

In the evening, no matter how tired you are, never go to sleep with makeup on. Makeup can get pushed into your pores when you sleep and dead skin cells can get trapped under the makeup. Use a gentle makeup remover every night and wash and moisturize before bed.

Keep the Humidity Level Just Right

Humidity levels greatly affect our skin. If the humidity levels are too low or too high the skin will lose some of its vitality. According to the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology, ideal humidity levels for healthy skin range from 45-55 percent. If the humidity is lower than that, you will experience dry and chapped skin, and if it is higher, you will get oily skin that is prone to acne or breakouts.

When the weather is very dry and humidity levels are low in the house, the epidermal layer of the skin loses its ability to retain water, resulting in dry, tight skin that can result in premature wrinkles. When humidity levels are high, it causes the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum leading to oily skin and the potential for breakouts. Be sure to keep the humidity levels low enough with a dehumidifier to prevent oily skin and a humidifier when levels are high to stop dry skin.

Drink Plenty of Water

Skin is the largest organ of the body and is made of cells and blood vessels. In order to function properly, the skin needs enough water to stay soft and resilient. Drinking sufficient amounts of water on a daily basis is vitally important in keeping your skin pliable, moist, and wrinkle-free. In addition, water helps to flush dead cells and toxins out of the body, giving your skin a healthy glow.

How much water should you drink daily?  A good rule of thumb, according to the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine is 3.7 liters of water for adult men and 2.7 liters for an adult woman. Or, simply drink 8-10 glasses of water per day to help keep your skin healthy.

Having gorgeous and radiant skin is simple and easy to do. With these helpful suggestions, you can have beautiful glowing skin that you are proud of.
