Okay, it doesn’t mean that it will be totally free because you always have to pay a price, either in effort or money, but to apply these tips you don’t have to spend millions of dollars in surgeries or aesthetic procedures to get a glow up, just modify small things in your daily routine, so you will see how to improve your skin practically for free.
How to get a perfect glow up on your skin?
1. Avoid alcoholic beverages and don’t smoke
Who doesn’t like parties and going out to dance with a few drinks to set the mood? I love it, but what do you think? It’s causing your skin to wrinkle.
When you consume alcohol in excess your body dehydrates. Over time this dehydration causes damage to your skin.
Tobacco smoke dries out the skin causing it to dehydrate. In addition, the toxins in cigarettes affect our cells that make the body look sick and the skin far from looking perfect looks wrinkled.
Next time you go out for a few drinks, think twice and don’t overdo it.
2. Eat healthy
Are you sugary, fatty and processed foods lover? It’s something that in addition to affecting your health, in the long term can bring symptoms of premature aging.
If you want to have perfect skin, always choose foods rich in nutrients and antioxidants, these help prevent and fight diseases, inflammation and symptoms of premature aging, and so your skin will look more radiant.
The foods with more antioxidants are:
- Berries (blackberries, strawberries, blueberries).
- Green tea
- Black grapes
3. Sleep 7-8 hours a day
Take care of your sleep. When we sleep we give our body the opportunity to renew our cells. Poor sleep increases the possibility of premature skin aging.
In addition to unwanted dark circles and eye bags, your skin becomes very dull when you don’t sleep.
If you are wondering how to get a glow up always think before go to sleep late that your skin will thank you more if you sleep your 7-8 hours.
4. Drink water for perfect skin
Your skin is the largest organ of your whole body. When we’re dehydrated our organs stop working properly, imagine what happens to your skin. Dehydration causes sensitive skin, dryness, irritation and premature aging.
When skin is dehydrated, it is less effective as a protective barrier, and tends to react easily to active ingredients or external elements, which is what we know as sensitive skin.
Re-hydrating the skin by drinking water restores its balance and makes it stronger, healthier and more tolerant. And even better if the hydration is with alkaline water, alive and full of nutrients.
Even if you already have symptoms of aging, hydrating your skin will reduce them, and depending on the degree of advancement, they may disappear.
5. Exercise regularly
By exercising we release toxins from our skin through sweat, and also release in our body the substance of ‘happiness’. If we feel happy our skin will also show it and look radiant. That’s why it’s important to always be on the move.
So don’t take this hackneyed phrase “eat well and exercise” for a tangent, because to stay healthy, with a perfect, radiant and youthful skin you will have to apply it.
If you don’t have time during the day you can do a morning routine when you wake up, it will help you start the day with more energy and focus.
6. Learn to manage your emotions
Have you noticed that when you are sad, depressed, angry or frustrated your face and skin look different? That’s right, when we keep our emotions inside and we don’t know how to express them they stay in our body, and sooner or later our body needs to get those toxins that you couldn’t handle out and many times it does it with pain, diseases, wrinkles in the skin, or any symptom that is out of the ‘normal’.
Dare to feel, don’t repress your emotions whether you consider them as ‘good’ or ‘bad’.
And don’t be overwhelmed, feeling those emotions is not bad, although if you are constantly in that negative state and you don’t know how to handle it, it is better to ask for help. You can also help yourself with meditations.
7. Say goodbye to the century drug.
Addicted to candy? You won’t believe it, but this ‘drug’ beyond staining your teeth and modifying your silhouette is killing your skin.
Sugar damages collagen fibers which causes the appearance of wrinkles in the skin. In addition, sugar induces inflation which worsens acne and rosacea.
The best thing to do is to reduce your sugar intake, believe me these small changes will make a difference to have a perfect skin.
8.Eat good fats
Unsaturated fats such as avocado, olive oil, nuts, fish, etc., are some of the best foods to improve and maintain skin hydration, be sure to include these fats in your diet.
9.Do a detox
It is good that every so often you do a detox, where your body will use the energy it uses to digest to cleanse, repair and rejuvenate. There are very good detox programs with juices, you can try and see which one works best for you.
10. Beware of too much sun
When the skin is exposed to the sun, it wears out the fiber breaking down the rays called elastin, which causes a greater inability of the skin to be balanced and produces wrinkles.
It is fine to take 15 minutes of sun, preferably in the morning before 9am when the UVA index is not so high, but if you are going to be exposed longer always use sunscreen.
Finally 2 actions that may cost you more financially, but do not see it as an expense, remember that the best thing you can do is to invest in yourself, in your physical and mental health.
11. Take Supplements
Our nature is becoming more and more polluted and with less nutrients, consequently, the natural foods we get from it are already low in nutrients.
That is why it is important to take supplements, of course not to replace the food we should eat but to supplement our nutrient intake. Consult with a professional, so he/she can tell you what you are missing and which are the best supplements for you.
12. Opt for natural products to have a perfect skin.
Have you noticed that most of the products on the market contain chemical ingredients? When we read the labels we see unpronounceable names that we don’t even know what they do or what they are for.
Go back to what is natural, to what you know what it is and what it is for. When you buy a product look at its label, ideally all its ingredients should be natural, but if not, with more than 3 unpronounceable names you’d better choose another option.
