As we learn more about the advantages of a whole foods diet and our bodies, it's increasingly clear that what we eat can make a huge difference to achieving clear healthy skin. We also know that prevention plays a big role in how our skin ages and the sooner we start eating a healthy whole foods diet and putting in place a regular natural skin care routine the better our skin is for it. Everyone wants great skin and we have put together a few tips below to help you achieve clear healthy skin.
Eat Lots Of Colorful Berries & Veggies
Try and avoid fried foods and eat plenty of spinach, broccoli, kale, carrots, tomatoes, red bell peppers (they have more vitamins than yellow, orange, or green), other colorful berries and vegetables. Fruit and vegetables contain powerful antioxidants that help to protect skin from the cellular damage caused by free radicals such as pollution and sunlight etc.
Cut Out Sugar
This means no fruit juices, sweets, and no sugar in your drinks as sugar can and does play havoc with your skin. Most people notice an improved complexion when they limit their sugar consumption.
Get Plenty of Sleep
Staying out late or watching TV until 2am is not healthy for you or your skin. Not sleeping enough can raise your body's stress levels, so try and get at least seven to eight hours of sleep each night to assist in achieving clear healthy skin. It always pays to remember that what goes on inside our bodies ends up showing on the outside of our bodies.
Wash Those Makeup Brushes
Make sure to wash your makeup brushes and makeup sponges regularly with brush cleanser, a natural hand & body wash or plant based shampoo. Dirty brushes can make even the best natural skin care routine go to waste.
This is an important step for clear healthy skin as you will notice a big difference in your skin if you exfoliate regularly to remove the layers of dead skin cells and dirt that are blocking your pores.
Never Leave Sleep With Your Makeup On
If you are serious about achieving clear healthy skin always wash your face before bed. If you don’t cleanse your skin before going to bed and sleep with your makeup on your skin will certainly pay for it.
Clean Your Mobile Phone
This is a tip that not many people think about however, your mobile phone can easily pick up bacteria, which can then get transferred to your face when you make a phone call. It pays to clean your phone on a regular basis.
Hopefully some of the tips above will help you achieve clear healthy skin.
