Drink plenty of water for great skin health

Drink plenty of water for great skin health

For more reasons than one, staying dehydrated is a bad idea. Amongst other things, it is extremely bad for your skin.

So, make sure you drink plenty of water for beautiful, glowing, and healthy skin.

Doctors usually recommend a daily intake of 8 to 12 glasses for your overall good health.

Stress

Get rid of stress for better skin health

Keep your exposure to sun in check

Sun exposure

Keep your exposure to sun in check

It's a no-brainer to minimize your sun exposure if you want a healthier skin. But mind it, sun can enter your space in more ways than you expect.

Sometimes, indoor sun-rays trespassing like at home, in office, or in cars can also damage your skin health.

We suggest you to use a sun-screen, wear full-sleeve clothing to reduce your indoor sun-exposure.

Sleep

Sound, full night's sleep is imperative for skin care

Research finds not getting enough sleep can cause acne and other skin problems.

This is because lack of sleep induces stress, and stress, as mentioned, releases coritsol and other hormones, that are ultimately going to ruin your skin.

So, while easier said than done, we suggest you to make it a habit to get a satisfying, sound 7-8 hours of sleep each night.

Opt for natural skin care products

Products

Opt for natural skin care products

Certain unnatural and packaged skin and hair care products, ie. conditioners, creams etc. can block the pores on your skin and cause acne, and other issues.

A general piece of advice would be to avoid the products that contain wax or oil in them, and opt for more natural product options ie. water-based products.
