If you ask a girl what she would change about her look if she had the opportunity, she would most probably say that she would want to lose some weight, or that she would change a part of her body she does not like. Not many women will first think about their skin and whether they would want to change it. The truth is that very few people in the world have perfect skin, without traces of any zits, acne or other annoying skin problems. And skin is very important in general for the outer appearance. And a person’s skin is the window to their health, literally. And if you have perfect health and skin, then it means you are beautiful. Here are the top secrets you need to know if you want to have perfect skin.
- Change your diet
You have probably heard that you are what you eat. This, of course, is not literal. It means that your body reacts to the food you eat. If you eat greasy, oily food, your skin will become oilier, thus more zits will appear. So, if you want not to have problems with your skin, begin with changing your diet. Start eating more fruits and vegetables, especially more green vegetables like kale and arugula. They have a lot of vitamins and minerals, and as a plus they have very few calories, so that you would not have to worry about your gaining weight. They have a lot of proteins that will make your skin well hydrate and thus perfectly glowing.
- Get enough sleep
A lot of people do not realize how important getting their daily amount of sleep is. It not only improves one’s health, but it makes you look more beautiful. Have you noticed that when you wake up in the morning by yourself and not by any alarm clocks or noisy neighbors, you look much more relaxed and your skin looks much fresher. This is because when you sleep your skin also takes a break from all the work during the day. The skin plays a role in your metabolism, protects your body from the UV radiation and regulates the body temperature. So when you go to bed thinking of your skin also and remove all of your makeup to give it the chance to breath.
- Stop picking your zits
When you have a pimple with a white top you probably cannot bear not to squeeze it. Yes, it is true that is very annoying and unpleasant, and definitely won’t make a good impression to the people around you, but it is not a good idea to start picking your zit. When you do it, you spread bacteria not only to the rest of your skin, but also in the small wound you have created by picking it, so you will make even worse. It will take a lot of time to recover, sometimes even weeks. So, remember not to pick your zits and to treat them with some good facial products. Also avoid looking at the mirror because it will just provoke to pick it.
- Let the magic of ice help you
Ice can do a lot of good things to you, for example, if you have fallen down the stairs and you have hurt your leg, you put ice on the spot to relief the pain and the swelling. However, ice has some other positive characteristics. It could be used as a natural exfoliant. Here is how it works: think of it as a freezer, when you put some kind of food in the freezer, it preserves its ingredients. So, it is the same when you apply ice to your body. It is a bit chilling, but it is totally worth it, especially in the summer. Just keep in mind that you should move the ice and not keep it just in one spot. It can also make you wake up and refresh yourself.
- Try skin oil
Together with all the products you use to have a healthy and clean skin, like lotions and face creams, you should try skin oil. It will make your skin look like it has a natural glow, which will be very attractive as well. Skin oils will nourish your skin from within. Another positive feature is that it will keep your skin moisturized and will balance the production of your natural skin oil, in other words, your skin won’t be as oily as usual. Apply it twice a day, in the morning and before going to bed, with the help of a cotton bud and this will be enough to have a perfect glowing complexion.
