It's every woman's dream to have a beautiful skin. What exactly is beautiful skin? A skin that is beautiful is well hydrated, radiant and smooth complexioned. It looks healthy, even toned and also has an inner glow to it.
You are what you eat. If you are going to eat junk food that is oily, salty or extremely sweet, you are going to get pimples and acne which may leave pock marks, for life. If you do not drink enough water, you will be most probably have skin that is dehydrated and not clear-complexioned.
Protein, vitamins, minerals and water are the basic, important ingredients for a beautiful, healthy, glowing, smooth-complexioned and even-tone skin.
Let's look at the food that is the basis of proteins, minerals and vitamins for beautiful skin.
Eat plenty of:
1. Vegetables especially leafy green vegetables, carrots, sprouts, cabbage and others.
2. Fruits, like oranges, lemons, berries and dried apricots have a lot of vitamins.
3. Sunflower seeds and sesame seeds.
4. Nuts, like almonds, walnut, Brazil nut and cashews.
5. Whole grain food like whole meal bread, rolled oats and brown rice.
If you eat at least one item from each of these groups of food above, you are likely incorporating the whole range of important nutrients like proteins, vitamins and minerals for skin.
Water is also important in its pure form and not as mineral water. The reason why water is so important is that it removes the daily toxins from the body. If you drink at least eight glasses of water a day, it is more than enough to cleanse your system of toxins, and so toxins do not have the chance to accumulate in your body tissues, like your skin, and give it a multi-shaded look.
Let us now look at some home remedies for beautiful skin:
Use natural cleansers, astringents and moisturizers. But all this depends on the type of skin you have, that is whether it is dry normal, oily or combination.
Natural cleanser: Green gram flour can be used for all skin types with a little bit of variation for each type.
1. For normal skin, just add adequate water to make it into a paste.
2. For dry skin, add a teaspoon of almond or olive oil and water.
3. For oily skin, you can add two tablespoons of lemon juice and water.
4. For blemishes, add one tablespoon of turmeric to green gram flour plus water.
Apply the paste by massaging very lightly and wash off with warm water.
Natural toner or astringent: Lemon juice is a great toner and astringent for oily and blemished skin. For the other types of skin, you may use witch hazel or even rose water.
Natural moisturizer: For normal and dry skin use a drop of olive oil and lightly apply evenly on the face. To do it evenly, drop the oil-drop into a tablespoon of water and then apply on to the face. Pat the skin dry. For oily skin, it is better not to put any moisturizers, as the skin is already producing a lot so oily sebum.
Scrub: Once a week when applying the cleanser above, let it dry and then scrub it off gently from the face. Exfoliating the top layers will let new skin grow and this is one of the important home remedies for beautiful skin.
Maintain your face with these simple and easy to use home remedies for beautiful skin. Also watch your diet and drink lots of water. And in no time you will soon have beautiful skin that is flawless and radiantly glows from the inside out.
