If you’re looking to pamper your skin in some special way, there are plenty of ways to do so naturally. Here are some tips and tricks you can use to get the most out of your beauty routine, both internally and externally. Try these 8 tips and tricks out, and soon enough you’ll be on your way to beautiful skin!

Start an Anti-Aging Skin Routine

If you’re looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, you don’t have to rely on skincare products that claim to be all natural. It turns out there are certain foods with anti-aging properties that can help keep your skin looking vibrant without additives. Did you know that some varieties of fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids? Eating two servings of fish (particularly salmon) each week is linked to younger-looking skin. Consuming more leafy greens is another easy way to get naturally beautiful skin. Oils like olive oil and coconut oil contain linoleic acid, which helps restore damaged skin cells. Olive oil also contains squalene, a powerful antioxidant that protects against sun damage.  Counter to what you’d expect when moisturising your skin with oils (expecting a breakout of spots) when I started using olive oil as my daily moisturiser, within days people were commenting on how good my skin was and asking what products I was using.

Eat Right

Your diet has a major impact on your skin health, so keeping it as healthy as possible is vital to keeping it looking its best. Eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables; incorporate seafood into your diet several times a week; drink plenty of water; keep processed foods to a minimum. Some people swear by eating yogurt or taking probiotics (similar to those found in foods like kefir) each day, saying that they help maintain clear, beautiful skin. But if you’re looking for an easy way to incorporate more healthy foods into your diet, try juicing. Freshly-pressed juices are filled with vitamins and minerals that can make a huge difference in how you look—and feel—over time. Plus, juices taste great! If you don’t have a juicer at home, most supermarkets sell bottled versions made from fresh fruits and veggies; these are perfect if you want to squeeze some extra nutrients into your daily routine without much effort.

Hydrate from the inside out

To prevent dry skin, drink lots of water throughout the day. When our bodies are hydrated with fresh water, it helps flush out impurities that could clog pores, cause breakouts or dehydrate your complexion. Aim to drink a minimum of eight glasses per day—more if you live in a hot climate or tend to sweat easily. Over time, you’ll develop a schedule that works best for you. And keep in mind that even mild dehydration can make your skin look dull, so don’t wait until you feel thirsty to quench your thirst!

Remove your make-up at night

Keep your skin clean! This is one of the first steps to achieving naturally beautiful skin. Even if you don’t wear a lot of make-up, it can be good practice to remove the day’s activities and any makeup each evening before bed. It removes any daily dirt or dust that may have accumulated on your face throughout your day. Using a mild cleanser can also keep pores clear of build-up and help with acne breakouts if they tend to be a problem. Washing with warm water will also open up capillaries, making it easier for blood flow throughout your face and especially good when followed by a light massage of oils or lotion, you can be sure that you’ve allowed your lymphatic glands to do their job effectively.

Use Natural Remedies

There are many natural remedies that you can use to help with skin concerns. Everything from tea tree oil, to aloe vera, is good for keeping your skin looking healthy and preventing breakouts. If you choose to use these kinds of products though, it’s very important that you follow all directions on how to apply them properly so as not to have a negative effect on your skin or health. For example, if someone has sensitive skin, it’s not a good idea to apply something like peppermint oil directly onto their face in order to prevent irritation or discomfort. Other options include mixing natural ingredients into a paste or lotion or mixing them together in warm water as a liquid or spray cleanser which you can rinse off when done.

Adopt a Morning Skincare Routine

Your skin is an organ, which means that it needs care, just like your heart or kidneys. As such, your skin will benefit from a good skincare routine to keep it hydrated and youthful. When you shower in the morning (or night), don’t forget to use a cleanser! It’s important to cleanse your face every day before applying lotion or moisturizer. These products can clog pores if not applied over a clean base. Try using a gentle exfoliator once or twice per week to remove dead skin cells and allow new ones to grow. Also, remember: sunscreen is key! Protecting your skin from UV rays with sunscreen helps prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Get Restful Sleep

If you are sleep deprived, your skin will suffer. One way to get that beautiful look is to make sure you’re getting a full eight hours of rest each night. During sleep, our bodies produce human growth hormone (HGH), which helps build collagen—the protein responsible for keeping skin firm and smooth. As we age, HGH levels drop off; unfortunately so does collagen production, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. To keep those pesky fine lines at bay, make sure you’re getting enough shuteye. Aim for seven to nine hours of sleep per night.

Avoid Sun Damage

We all know it’s important to wear sunscreen on sunny days, but did you know UV rays can actually penetrate through glass? If you spend a lot of time driving or even at work, be sure to use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher—and be sure it protects against both UVA and UVB rays. As an extra precaution, consider investing in anti-aging creams like tretinoin or vitamin C that will further protect your skin from sun damage.   Sunscreen is often marketed as a beauty product, but it’s really just a defence mechanism for your skin. When you choose one with SPF 30 or higher, make sure it has broad spectrum protection (it should say so on the label) and also contains antioxidants such as vitamins C and E.
