Follow Foreverfit’s top 6 suggestions for skincare, guaranteed to give you a glowing complexion.

Our skin is a reflection of our health and lifestyle. Hence, skin problems are usually an indication of underlying imbalances in the body, which can be alleviated by making simple changes.

But if you have persistent skin problems such as chronic acne, dermatitis, allergies, or eczema, please see a dermatologist. Otherwise, follow our tips to help you attain the glowing complexion you have probably only dreamed about till now.

#1 Eat Right

A good diet is important for a fit body and mind, and a radiant complexion too. Make sure you include vital micronutrient and vitamin rich foods in your diet.

Eat healthy portions of protein rich foods like fish, nuts, grains, and fresh fruits and vegetables daily, and up your quotient of anti-oxidant and zinc containing foods, to protect the skin from harmful free radicals responsible for wrinkles and creases.

#2 Drink plenty of water

There are many health benefits of keeping your body well hydrated. Drinking 10 to 12 glasses of water a day cleanses the body from within, and ensures you have a glowing complexion.

#3 Protect yourself from sun damage

Get all the sunshine you need during the early morning hours, as the harsh afternoon sun can be damaging to the skin. Apply a good sunscreen with an SPF of 45 or above while going out in the sun.

Cover your skin to the maximum extent possible, and use an umbrella when you are going out in the sun.

#4 Have a glass of lemon water daily

Start your day with a glass of warm lemon juice, or amla juice and honey, since this regulates your body’s pH levels to a favorable alkaline state. The Vitamin C content of these drinks has an amazing impact on the skin.

# 5 Maintain a good skincare routine

Maintain a good skin care routine to get rid of pimples, zits, and hyperpigmentation. Stick to a cleanse-tone-moisturize schedule daily, and exfoliate regularly to remove dirt and oil. If you wear makeup then don’t forget to remove it with a good cleanser, before going to bed.

# 6 Keep your stress in check

Stress harms the health in more ways than one. Hormones released when you are anxious may lead to premature ageing and wrinkles. So keep your stress in check with yoga, pranayama, and regular exercise. Also, do get least 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night.
