Who said flawless, beautiful skin is proportional to the cash in your pocket spent on beauty products? It may seem like that, and may be true to a certain extent. But do not be sad if your pockets are a little too tight to spend fortunes on beauty products.

You can get fresh, glowing and healthy skin naturally too. There are a variety of tricks and techniques that can be implemented easily without having to sell your kidney to do them.


You can apply all the expensive moisturizers in the world, but they won’t do what eight to 10 glasses of water a day can do for your skin. Superficial moisturizing of skin is no exchange for the natural hydration of cells from within. Water not only works best at quenching your mouth’s thirst, but also your skin’s thirst. Along with that, it works great at eliminating toxins from your body, making it look healthier and glowing.

Water may be the answer to more of your problems than you may think; dull skin, freckles, acne, brittle nails, thinning of hair, lack of alertness, you name it. One of the leading causes of dull skin and freckles is insufficient intake of water. It makes your pores and wrinkles to be more prominent. This, apparently, is because water is essential for a number of collagen-building processes. The skin is less likely to crack and become visibly flawed when it is properly hydrated, plumped and elastic. Hydration makes it difficult for external particles to penetrate it, and cause damage.


The true vitality of moisturizing can never be stressed on enough. You definitely don’t have to stress over your high fashion celebrity endorsed moisturizers. Simple ones will do too. Even better alternatives are almond oil, coconut oil and olive oil.

This is important to help control crackling of your skin, making freckles and fine lines disappear, giving off a younger look and slowing aging.


The top most layer of your skin is composed of dead skin cells. With too much of it, your skin and complexion may start looking dull and unattractive. What helps is exfoliation of the skin to get rid of this layer of skin. The easy way to do it at home is by opting for the DIY way – mixing olive oil with brown sugar. See? Not heavy on the pockets at all!


Stress is one of the many things that will rob you off your skin’s beauty in no time. It is therefore of utmost importance to deal with any stressors effectively and religiously. After a tiring day, just lie down and meditate, even if it is for just 20 minutes. Do whatever helps you rejuvenate your mind and body since that will ultimately be good for your skin. Whether it’s a long, warm bath, a trip to the spa, an early-morning run, do it! Know that dealing with stress is vital for flawless skin!


Who said exercise is only good your heart and physique? When you exercise and ultimately sweat and work your body, you are ridding it off many toxins and increase blood circulation and flow to your face.

So try these inexpensive tips and see the difference for yourself!
