We all want fresh, dewy skin that stands out in a crowd. Pimples, blemishes, and scars are all our worst enemies. We all also desire to look beautiful and spot-free without makeup. Let’s admit it, it becomes bit of a hassle wearing makeup every single day. But still, the desire for a radiant and fresh skin stays there. But what can be done to achieve that desirable skin? I’ve rounded up few tips for a refreshing and  flawless skin.

Relax for a Healthy Skin

The first step to naturally glamorous skin is to not stress yourself out over your skin, or anything for that matter. Stress is known to increase oil secretion on your face, resulting in clogged pores and acne. One of the healthiest ways to de-stress your mind and body is meditation.

  1. Lie down on your bed with your hands on either side and close your eyes.
  2. Thinking about nothing, and any thoughts dare come your way, shut them out.
  3. Keep doing it until you feel like you’re slipping into a subconscious state.
  4. Continue this for about 20 to 30 minutes in the middle of your day or whenever you get time.

With these steps towards de-stressing your mind, come un-avoidable effects on your skin as well. Always remember, healthy mind leads to a healthy body, and a healthy body can get you a healthy skin.

Drink Lots Of Water and Keep Your Skin Hydrated

Start your day with a glass or two of room-temperature water; not too cold and not too warm. Drink a minimum of 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. Why? It’s pretty simple. By drinking ample quantity of water, you excrete many harmful toxins from the body that also hurt the quality of your skin. Also, did you know that your skin is the last organ of the body to receive whatever supply of water you choose to give to it?

That’s why even when sometimes you think you’re drinking enough water, but are noticing frequent bouts of oiliness on your skin, know that it may not be enough for you. In some similar cases, just increasing the intake of water can solve your issue.

Water makes your skin look radiant, fresh, helps recover the dark under-eye circles and fill gaps between wrinkles.

Keep Oily Foods To A Minimum

Oily foods such as chips and crisps and junk food loaded with cheese and mayo should all be the last of your meal options if you are hell-bent on naturally improving the quality of your skin.

What should you eat instead? Eat healthy green vegetables, eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fruits loaded with Vitamin C! All of these contain variety of minerals and nutrients such as Vitamins (A, B, C, K), minerals such as iron, potassium and magnesium. These greatly contribute to a fresher-looking and a more radiant face, since they work towards cleansing your mind, ultimately reflecting on your face.

Try Coconut Oil

Virgin oil is known for its contribution towards a healthier-looking skin. It has amazing anti-oxidant properties that help fight free radicals in the skin. It also helps even your skin tone giving a subtle glow and improving the texture of your skin. Besides that, it also has healing properties on the skin.

Never Miss Out On Beauty Sleep

When you sleep, you let your body rejuvenate and grow. When you do not get enough sleep, the process remains hindered and incomplete inevitably showing on your skin as blemishes, acne, and large pores.

Always try to take a nap in the afternoon, even if it is for only 30 to 40 minutes, and get a sound sleep of 7 to 9 hours in the night.
