Every woman wants smooth, glowing skin that looks flawless without makeup and shimmers year-round. It is very important to take care of one’s skin and with the current weather conditions your skin care just goes for a toss. It is an integral part like you take care of your teeth. Everyday care and moisturizing helps your skin in a very long run. It can make a good amount of difference once you start taking care of your skin. When I say skin it doesn’t mean your face is the only thing that has to be taken care and you should take care of your whole body.
1. Get Your Rest
Don’t skimp on sleep! Your skin needs eight hours of sleep each night to look radiant and healthy. Skip the z’s and you’ll end up with swollen, puffy eyes, dark eyelids, under-eye circles, and skin that’s dull and drab. If you’re exhausted, your face shows it!
2. Eat Well
Eat a healthy, balanced diet every day. What goes in your body shows on your skin. That means that anything greasy, fried, fattening, sugar-filled, or chemically processed can make your complexion look oily, pasty, yellow, sallow, and sick. Give your body the nutrition it needs and your skin will reveal radiant results. Lean meat and fish, whole-grain complex carbohydrates, and lots of fresh fruits (especially berries) and vegetables (especially green leafy ones) are key to sustaining a healthy diet for radiant skin. You are what you eat: Eat these healthy foods for healthy skin.

3. Drink More (and Less)
Drink a lot of water but not a lot of alcohol. Water keeps skin hydrated, moist, and radiant, so make sure you drink at least eight eight-ounce glasses every day. Carry water with you and sip as you go. Try to reduce or eliminate your alcohol intake. Alcohol makes skin dim, causes under – eye circles, sucks skin’s moisture out, and prematurely ages you.
4. Sweat it Out
If you’re thinking of skipping the gym today, don’t. Exercise gets the blood flowing and the oxygen circulating; it also relaxes your mind, which comes through in healthy, radiant skin.
5. Get Out of The House
Turn off the TV and head outside. Fresh air does your skin good, provided you’re protected from wind and harmful UV rays.
6. Be Sun Smart all Year Long
Be wary of the sun. Always wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more. Never use tanning beds. Don’t strive for a temporary, healthy – looking tan – it will leave you with dry, leathery, wrinkled skin that you have to live with forever.
7. Open Your Eyes
Don’t squint. Wear your shades all year long to protect your eyes. If you’re squinting indoors, get your eyesight checked and make sure you wear your glasses or contacts when necessary. Squinting leads to lines and wrinkles and detracts from smooth skin.
8. Calm Down
De – stress. Stress shows on your face. If you hadn’t already guessed, it causes acne breakouts. And grimaces in time lead to worry lines. Learn to meditate, practice yoga, breathe deeply, or find a stress – management technique that works best for you.
9. Keep it Clean
Keep your skin clean and exfoliate weekly to remove grime, cut back on bacteria, scrape off dead cells, and leave it looking radiant. Use as few cosmetic products as possible, and make sure they are always unscented, hypoallergenic, and dermatologist approved. Too much makeup gives you a flat, fake look rather than the glow you’re looking for.
10. Take Fish Oils
Fish oils may be great for your heart but did you know they can help to reverse the signs of aging too? Premium oils contain powerful antioxidants like astaxanthin and lycopene which help to increase the thickness, decrease scaling and reduce the roughness of the skin by up to 60%.
