Despite how common skincare products are nowadays, taking care of your skin through these products can both time consuming and costly. But no need to worry, because there are other ways to obtain the glowing skin of your dreams, these include making use of natural ingredients, following a specific diet, having a healthy sleeping schedule and more. So, if you’re wondering about the idea of getting a glowing skin at home without the need for products, then look no further than this article!
The Importance of Sleep
To obtain the glowing, young-looking, soft feet and hands, simply apply some moisturizing cream then cover them in some thin gloves and socks when you’re about to go to sleep.
Another trick is making sure that your humidifier is running every night in winter time, it’ll help moisturize the air in the bedroom, thus dealing with any dry and itchy skin that you have, and enabling you to breathe more freely while asleep.
If you want to eliminate disturbances or insomnia caused by ambient light, hang some room-darkening shades around your bedroom for maximum sleep. Sleep alone is very crucial to your skin’s health because most of the skin cells repair and regeneration happen when you’re asleep, in other words, if you don’t get enough rest, your skin will not heal properly.
If you’re someone who’s into long and steamy showers, then try to replace them with shorter, cooler ones. Why? You may ask, well, because long hot showers dry your skin and eliminate most protective oils which are never a good thing. That’s why most dermatologists, all around the globe, recommend under 10 minutes long showers with somewhat cool water.
Moreover, make sure to use a loofah on a daily basis to keep dry, scaly skin and ingrown hairs at bay. When showering, put a few drops of an alpha-hydroxy product on the loofah and scrub flaky skin spots in a circular motion to get rid of any dead cells and obtain a moisturized and smooth skin.
Also, switch from a deodorant soap to an added-fat soap as soon as possible, some of your options include Oilatum, Neutrogena, and Dove. This is due to the fact that soaps with added fat leave a highly beneficial, oily, film on your skin after using them, unlike deodorant ones.
Finally, the following are some bath add-ins that you can use to deal with itchy and dry skin:
Choose Your Drinks Wisely
For starters, you can drink your tea instead of throwing it as an add-on in your bath (duh.). As mentioned above, tea provides you with vast amounts of antioxidants (molecules that fight the damage caused by smoking and sun exposure).
A study done in the state of Arizona found that people who drank more tea than others (especially tea with lemon) have way lower chances of developing cell skin cancer.
If drinking is your thing, however, then make sure to consume no more than a glass of wine or a single alcoholic drink naturally because overdrinking will enlarge the blood vessels near the surface of your facial skin causing problems to appear.
Be Ready Before Going Outside
If you’re about to go out in a sunny day, then try to avoid using perfumes and scented lotions for the sole reason that once scented products meet the sun, they can lead to blotchy skin spots.
Although this may sound wrong for many, make sure to sweat by cycling, jogging, working out in general. Because sweat is nature's answer to all the different toxic chemicals that build up in your skin. Additionally, exercising maintains a consistent blood flow throughout your body, your skin included.
Anyway, if you're exercising outside on a hot day, make sure to wear some sunscreen to protect you from all the UAV rays that come off the sun. In case you want the extra protection, apply a cream that contains high amounts of vitamin C, vitamin E, or beta-carotene, due to their multiple properties that help prevent skin dehydration & wrinkles (vitamin E) and provide a sunblock (vitamin C).
Keep It Moist
First, keep in mind that your skin needs more moisture in winter time more than any other season, so if you happen to have started wearing your sweaters, make sure to buy a heavier moisturizer alongside them. And if it's summer, and you're using shorts instead of sweaters, then switch to a lighter moisturizer.
Second, carefully select your moisturizers, make sure to buy ones that contain skin repairing humectants, these include: glycerin, urea, propylene glycol, etc. Also seek skin products that contain AHAs, short for alpha-hydroxy acids, these acids are usually found in grapes, apples, sour milk, and more. They help reduce wrinkles and help with acne, age spots and such.
A quick note for men: Skin-preserving products, although commonly used by women, can be used by men too, that’s why I recommend using your wife or sister’s skin care product to eliminate wrinkles and the chance of getting skin cancer and such.
