Tips for healthy skin!

The trend of spending much money on cosmetics of all types is in vogue but ladies! what matters is the inner health. Your healthy skin means a
healthy "you." So here's what it takes to get a healthy, glowing and
beautiful skin. 
1. Maintain a healthy and balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables and sunflower seeds. 
2. Avoid fried and fatty foods as they increase the sebum secretion in skin and cause acne and pimples. 
3. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water per day. This will help to keep your skin moist, refreshed and supple, which will help  developing wrinkles and blemishes.
4. Moisturize! Applying moisturizer after a warm face wash or a warm shower is the best remedies for skin. Moisturizing helps to restore the oils that our skin has and helps to keep the skin hydrated. Moisturizing for men is just as important as the oils in men's skin can be lost more easily than those in women.
5. Protect yourself from tanning and sunburn as this is the main reason for premature aging. Keep an SPF 35-40 sunblock in your use. (SPF 30 to 40 because this range is the most suitable for asian skin)
6. Regular exercise helps to keep the skin elasticity which prevents wrinkles. Exercise is also good for your body as a whole as it helps to maintain a low amount of body fat.

7. Vitamins and minerals help normal functioning of the body. By taking one multivitamin a day can help to keep your skin fresh and clean.
7. Sleep is the body's time to restore itself and to re-energies the body's organs and skin. By maintaining a regular sleep pattern, you'll give ample time to your body and skin to perform the daily repair of tissues. 

8. Do not scrub and wash too hard. By doing this it removes the required oils that the skin needs to regenerate. When washing, wash lightly and in circular motion. This helps to keep the blood flow in your skin and does not allow the essential oils to escape.

9. Do not squeeze pimples/acne . Although very tempting, by squeezing spots and black heads, they spread and marks develop on face. By not squeezing; your skin can heal the spot on its own and marks/scars will not be formed. Constant squeezing of spots will cause scarring of the skin.

10.  Smoking causes premature aging and yellowing of the teeth and skin. The tobacco that is released into the air dries out your skin, while the smoke you inhale constricts the flow of blood to blood vessels, therefore preventing your skin of essential nutrients that your body supplies.
