How could get beautiful skin from inside out

Posted on: March 5, 2009

The cosmetics industry is flooded with millions of products that promise to give you a healthy and radiant complexion. But you only need to stop and think. Your skin might be paying the price of your indulgences such as sun bathing, stress, intake of an unhealthy diet and inadequate sleep that account for the development of multiple skin woes and can accelerate the process of ageing. One of the best ways to get beautiful skin is by taking care of your body inside out and aim towards achieving the overall wellness of the mind and body instead of using an array of cosmetics to camouflage your imperfections.

Natural Remedies for getting a flawless complexion:
In order to get a radiant glow, you must make a few lifestyle changes. Increase your daily supply of the vital nutrients and go high on water. Try exercising on a regular basis and give up all unhealthy habits.

Say no to smoking: Nicotine lends to skin irritation and weakens collagen. It also results in the loss of the natural protective barrier safeguarding the skin against the harmful action of free radicals resulting in premature ageing and the formation of prominent lines and wrinkles.

Avoid alcohol: This dehydrates the body and results in excessive dryness of the skin. It also slows down the release of toxins from the body, making your eyes and face look puffy.

Combat stress: Stress results in dark circles, acne and impairs the skin’s immunity against free radical damage making you look far older than your actual age.

Relax: It is essential for you to take out time for relaxation and recreation on a daily basis. You can pamper yourself by taking a warm bath just before hitting the bed or try listening to some soothing music or meditate. Just about anything that brings you to closer to the self helps relax the mind and combats stress.

Regular exercise: This helps release endorphins in the body that safeguard the body against stress and stimulate feelings of pleasure and happiness. Walking, yoga, aerobics, fitness ball, jogging and swimming are some of the best forms of exercise.

Garlic: This is a wonderful natural remedy for keeping your skin looking youthful and supple. It is a rich source of antioxidants and provides ample nourishment to the skin. Eating 2-3 raw garlic cloves on a daily basis helps maintain skin elasticity and prevents the onslaught of wrinkles.

Aromatherapy: This helps relax the mind and combats stress effectively. The essential oils of lavender and tea tree can be used in warm baths, candles or diffusers to alleviate strain and induce calmness.

Basil or tulsi is one of the best natural remedies for combating acne. You can take a few fresh tulsi leaves and grind them into a paste. Apply this along with sandalwood powder on your face for treating blemishes and acne. Rinse with warm water after half an hour.
