A naturally glowing, rosy skin is the epitome of beauty as it makes you look glamorous. However, the skin is a reflection of internal health and being the largest organ of the body requires a lot of pampering and caring to maintain its natural radiance. Excess use of makeup and commercial beauty products can be harmful for the skin so it is better to choose right skincare product. Other factors like environmental hazards, lack of sleep, overwork, poor food choices, as well as emotional factors such as stress, anxiety, and depression affect the skin. You can easily add a pinkish hue naturally with easy homemade remedies keeping in mind your skin type.
Tips for naturally glowing skin:
Eat a diet rich in fresh fruits and Vegetables:
An important way to achieve healthy, pinkish complexion is to consume a healthy, balanced diet rich in proteins. Fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and carotenoids. Citrus fruits and green leafy vegetables are rich in Vitamin C and E that protect the skin from damaging free radicals. Crash dieting and skipping meals take a toll on the skin causing it to lose its radiance. Add foods such as watercress, cabbage, beet, tomatoes, carrot etc. to your daily diet that help in eliminating the digestive wastes from the body and also help in boosting blood circulation.
Fill in the deficiency:
Vitamin E and C are vital for giving a natural glow to the skin. Apply a paste of orange peel cream and a broken Vitamin E capsule, leave for minutes, wash it off with luke warm water. Vitamin A helps give skin strength and elasticity and minimizes the effects of sun damage on the skin.
Minimize your exposure to harmful substances:
UVA/UVB rays are known to be harmful to the skin because they slow down the body’s ability to repair damaged skin cells and clear dead ones. Pollution is also a major cause of acne and dull skin tone. Stop smoking as it restricts blood flow imparting a greyish skin tone. Reduce sun exposure with useful accessories and long-sleeves or pants.
Manage anger and stress and sleep well:
Practice stress management techniques like deep breathing exercises, meditation, yoga, Tai Chi to reduce stress and enhance your complexion naturally. Adequate sleep is required to reduce stress; the skin replenishes itself with oils during sleep.
Exercise and Hydration:
Regular exercise and proper hydration i.e. drinking lots of water and natural fruit juices helps maintain and preserve an upbeat and stunning skin. Exercises like brisk walking, jogging, swimming impart a natural glow to the skin because of the blood circulation it stimulates, increasing the oxygen and nutrient supply. Apart from maintaining the lost moisture, staying hydrated helps to flush away toxins from the skin.
Daily exfoliation with a mild homemade facial scrub sloughs off dead cells exposing new skin cells with a naturally rosy hue. A natural face scrub can be made by mixing a teaspoon each of sugar, olive oil, honey and lemon juice.
Gentle massaging using the fingertips in circular strokes in a lower to upper movement stimulates blood circulation, adding a natural glow to the skin. Your skin may look dull and tanned due to accumulation of dead skin and toxins on the skin. Massaging sugar on damp skin for 3-4 minutes will make the skin look pink in a week’s time. Washing face with warm water also increases blood circulation, creating a rosy complexion.
