How To Have A Clear Face With Clear Face Tips
A friend said to me that what we do or do not do to our health, how we live every day and what choices we make every day – can be reflected in the health of our hair and skin. What are your thoughts? I sad, Do you know that the condition or health of your hair or your skin is a reflection of your overall health?
- Personally, I agree with her. In fact, my dad and mum mentioned the same thing. How we take care of our bodies internally, especially, makes the big difference – although it is also important to take care of ourselves every day ‘on the outside.’
- For example, keeping our ‘insides’ clean (good digestive system, toxins flushed out and liver functioning well) and functioning at optimum health is a lot more important than just doing our daily ‘external’ cleaning routines. Here, diet and lifestyle play important roles.
- I would like to share with you 13 practical tips of how to ‘generally’ take care of yourself internally and externally to have healthy and good skin. In fact, for those having problem skin like acne or acne prone skin, should make these tips a daily habit or routine.
- First remember, Maybe some of you have heard of water therapy? I do this every morning. say it is good to drink 2-3 glasses of plain water first thing in the morning before breakfast.
- Do drink enough water every day and even more so if you have acne skin. It is common that dehydration aggravates your skin and causes acne to flare up. To keep your skin cells healthy, keep yourself well-hydrated.
- Be aware of your hands – avoid touching your face unless necessary. You do not want to spread the dirt, bacteria and what not to your face. Keep your hands clean at all time, especially before washing your face.
- Even rubbing your eyes or resting your face or chin on your palms or hands can get the bacteria to your skin. Your pores can get infected. Your acne can be aggravated and get worse.
- Your skin does not need to be ‘squeaky clean’ because this dries your skin too much. Instead, wash your face gently – massage gently with your fingers in circles around your face, thoroughly. Use a good quality cleanser. The common practice is to wash your face twice daily.
- It is best to eat fresh food, eat more vegetables, eat more fruits and drink enough water. What you put into your body affects not just your overall health but the health of your skin and hair. That being said, diet does not cause acne. However, diet can aggravate skin problems and acne. So eat healthily. Avoid stuff you may be allergic.
- How well do you sleep? Do you sleep 8 hours? Do you sleep regular hours or do you have a ‘mixed-up or scattered’ sleeping schedule? They say, 8 hours of quality sleep is important. In simple words, it is best to ‘sleep like a baby.’
- Though stress does not cause acne or skin problems, stress especially extreme stress aggravates skin problems like acne and makes the problem worse. So Sleep gives our whole body rest and eases tension and stress. But what about when we are awake?
- Although not taking vitamins and supplements do not cause acne, the skin specialist did say taking vitamins and supplements or giving our bodies the necessary nutrients it needs will help with the healing process and to keep us healthy.
- Nutrients play a part in healing, in building and in keeping skin cells healthy to give us a glowing and healthy complexion.
- Some regular exercise is good like maybe 3 times a week – to get your blood and oxygen circulated throughout your body. This is good not just for your overall health but also great for your skin.
- Stay positive. Smile and laugh. Besides, laughter is the best medicine, as many people say. And if I recall this correctly – it is a fact that we use a lot more facial muscles when we frown than when we smile.
