Simple Beauty Tips for Healthy Skin

simple beauty tips for healthy skinWith our busy lives is no wonder we may not pay as much attention to our skin as we should.

But whatever your age or skin type, we really can give our skin a boost just with a few changes to our daily routine.

Here are few suggestions to get your skin looking and feeling its best.

1. Diet

Getting into the habit of eating a healthy, skin-friendly diet will boost and enhance your regular skin care routine.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are, of course, key components to a diet that is good for the skin. But there are certain foods that contain vitamins and minerals that are promotes radiant skin. Here is a partial list:

* Spinach (Vitamin A)

* Sweet potatoes (Vitamin A)

* Nuts and seeds (healthy fats and antioxidants)

* Berries (antioxidants and Vitamin C)

* Avocados (healthy fats, Vitamin E)

* Citrus fruits (Vitamin C)

* Raw bell peppers (Vitamin C)

* Cantaloupe (Vitamin C and A)

* Turkey (zinc)

* Salmon (healthy fats and zinc)

* Brown rice and other whole grains (B vitamins)

* Olive oil (healthy fats)

So a healthy diet of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, fish and poultry (the kind of diet that’s been generally considered the healthiest for years) is best for your skin.

2. Exercise

Exercise is important even for your skin. For one thing, exercise promotes healthy circulation and blood flow to the skin. It is through the flow of blood that the body clears toxins out of the body, including the skin. And blood carries oxygen and vital nutrients to skin.

Another way in which exercise may restore your skin’s glow is by reducing stress and the “worry lines” that go with it. Stress reduction may also balance your hormones, reducing hormone-related skin problems. Yoga and Pilates are great exercises for stress reduction.

3. Rest

Adequate rest is important for skin health – it’s called “beauty sleep” for a reason! Tired skin looks saggy and undereye skin can develop dark circles or puffiness.

So make a point of getting those eight hours of sleep and, if possible, make some time to rest in the afternoon if you’re short on sleep.

4. Exfoliate

Weekly exfoliating treatments are considered important for glowing skin. You can make your own homemade exfoliant or purchase one, (one to try is, Olay Regenerist Microdermabrasion & Peel System Kit) but make sure it fits your skin type. Exfoliants should be gentle, not harsh.

5. Facial Cleansers

Honey, yogurt, and sweet almond oil are key ingredients in homemade cleansers that give skin radiance.

You can make your own moisturizing cleanser by mixing 1/4 Greek yogurt with 1/2 teaspoon raw honey and 1/4 teaspoon sweet almond oil.

You can also purchase cleansers specific to your skin’s problems, such as cleansers for dry skin, wrinkles, or oily skin. (BTW…One excellent soap-free cleaner is Eucerin Sensitive Skin Gentle Hydrating Cleanser).

Experts generally agree that using harsh soap, especially on a regular basis, is not good for skin. Soap-free cleansers are commercially available, or you can make your own as noted above.

6. Sun Exposure

One of the most overlooked culprits in dull skin is the sun.

If you really want to restore a youthful glow, limiting or eliminating direct sun exposure is a good idea.

Consider wearing a daily sunscreen on your face and exposed skin. You can even purchase moisturizer/sunscreen liquid make-up combinations. (One that I LOVE using is CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation).


Healthy looking skin really starts with the choices we make everyday. Just a few changes to our daily habits can make a big difference.
