Have you ever wondered why no amount of facials, skincare treatments or products help you get the perfect skin? You might be skipping these daily, essential habits you need to adopt for instantly better skin. Here is all you need to do:
1.Detox Drink First Thing in the Morning
Did you know that your gut health has a direct affect on your skin. All you need to do is opt for a detox drink first thing in the morning – take a warm cup of water and add a detoxifying agent like lemon. This will not only help get rid of toxins, it will also help you lose weight (just an added benefit). If you want to really fancy it up, add ginger, cinnamon, apple cider vinegar, honey or even cucumbers to your drink. Get creative!
2.A Facial Massage
A face massage in the directions as given in the above image stimulate blood flow and help oxygen reach more congested areas so that there is ample oxygen for your skin to heal and recover.
3.Sweat It Out
Exercise isn’t only great for the body and the mind, but it also works wonders for the skin. It boosts blood flow which helps in skin renewal and also helps you sweat out the toxins. Exercise helps reduce stress and we all know, stress is your worst enemy. Not only does it lead to frown lines (BAD, BAD, BAD) it also increase the level of cortisol in your body (the hormone that increases oil production) thereby increasing the chances of clogged pores and unwanted pimples.
Don’t meditate cluelessly – meditate with your skin in mind. Do it for 5 to 10 minutes in the day so that it helps you de-stress and since it largely focuses on breathing, it allows a lot more oxygen to reach your skin which is great for skin rejuvenation. Bring out the yoga mat and call out to your inner yogi!
5.Get Your Beauty Sleep
Makes us wonder if Snow White really knew the secret behind her beauty – it has to be nothing less than the beauty sleep. Sleep is essential to help your body heal, repair and fix itself, and this applies to your skin too. Your skin cells reproduce while you sleep and it allows you to wake up looking no less than Snow White herself. Try clocking in 6-8 hours, beauty queens!
