How Do You Get Beautiful Skin

Remember that there is no magic potion here. No genie in a bottle, either! Most people get good skin courtesy of expensive skin treatments and pricey skin products. Others cover their skin with layers and layers of make-up to hide their imperfections, but if you are serious in your quest of getting that naturally gorgeous glowing skin, here are some tips which may help you.

# Summon the help of the ever-dependable skin vitamins! Beautiful skin is a manifestation of good health. We are in a time where nutrient deficiency is almost a trend, a walk of life. Sadly, we are so very fond of eating junk foods, which do not contain the essential nutrients needed by our body. To correct this, we need to take a closer look at our diet and start doing the necessary changes.

What are the vitamins, which play a vital role in maintaining beautiful skin? Here they are:

Vitamin A. This vitamin repairs damaged body tissues, provides moisture to dry skin and delays the overall ageing process. Among the foods rich in vitamin A are eggs, milk, cheese, butter, broccoli, carrots, spinach and fish oils.

You may also take vitamin A supplements but essential caution should be observed since this vitamin is fat-soluble and any excess amount can be stored in the liver. Hence, there can be a danger of over-supplementation, which may prove to be hazardous to health.

Vitamin B is known to improve blood circulation and skin tone. Essential doses of this vitamin can be supplied by a number of foods such as brown bread, cereals, wheat germ, yeast, yoghurt and green leafy vegetables.

A daily supplement can be taken safely since vitamin B is water-soluble and any excess is simply eliminated from our body.

Vitamin C helps by maintaining the optimum level of collagen, the protein responsible for healing the skin. It gives skin that healthy glow and also helps keep the skin smooth and firm. Among the rich sources of vitamin C are citrus fruits, strawberries and blackcurrants. Broccoli, cabbage, potatoes and sprouts are also very good sources of vitamin C. Like vitamin B, a vitamin C supplement may also be taken daily.

# Drink up. Water helps by speeding up the elimination of toxins from our body. It is therefore essential to load up on water. For maximum results, make it a habit to drink at least 8 to 12 glasses of water daily.

# Rest. Most of the repair and maintenance of the damaged cells and tissues of the skin occurs while we sleep. So be sure to get enough rest.

# Avoid stress. There are an awful lot of damaging effects brought by stress to our overall state of health. Unfortunately, much of it shows in our face and in our skin. Stress triggers the formation of lines around the eyes and several other skin conditions such as acne and eczema.

# Protect your skin from the damaging effects of the environment. The sun, the wind and other environmental factors damage our skin. As such, we need to do our best to protect it.

Wearing a good sunblock or lotion may do. Just remember to wear one with the correct SPF every time you spend time outdoors.

# Stay away from alcohol, drugs and smoking. Say hello instead to healthy living!
