Are you confused too what should be done to get clear skin after hearing to all the beauty icons on social media and getting baffled by the marketing hype of different products each claiming to be the best?
If you are still reading this article I am pretty sure like me you too are not satisfied by what the beauty influencers say or what the marketing campaign claims.In this article, I will get you through five lifestyle changes that you can follow if you like to get a glowing and radiant complexion.
Change 1. Wash your face twice a day
If pimples or oily skin is something you are trying to avoid don’t skip on washing your face. Doing as simple as washing your face twice a day can do wonders for your pimple and oily skin. In a recently conducted research participants of the research were asked to wash their face one, two, or four times a day for 8 weeks. Research concluded that the skin of those who were washing their faces twice a day showed a considerable improvement.
Change 2. Drink Water
While simple it may sound, not many even think of doing this when it comes to improving the health of our skin. Drinking at least 1.5-2 liters of water can do wonder for your skin since skin is 64% water only. One research states that drinking at least 2.25 lt water for four weeks has a significant effect on skin density and thickness. Sounds great right! Then why think twice grab a bottle of water now!
Change 3. Improve Sleeping Habits
I know you are loaded with work, study or some other stress and have forgot to sleep like a baby. Research states that not having a good night’s sleep can deteriorate your skin health. Since the body doesn’t get enough time to repair itself at night, your body releases adrenaline and cortisol to cope with pressure. This excess adrenaline and cortisol release can cause skin breakouts and pimples.
Change 4. Coconut oil
Winters are coming and I know how much you are scared of your dry skin. Moisturizers! Right that’s the first word comes to both of our minds when we think of skin dryness, but my concern is what’s the use of paying for moisturizers which majorly contains either coconut oil or extract of the same when you have the same available in your home for free. Yeah, you are reading it right applying a bit of Coconut oil on your skin in the place of your fancily wrapped moisturizer can put an end to your dry skin worries.
Change 5. Pollution Mask
Pollution levels in the country are on a rise, and wearing a pollution mask can be of much benefit. I know you would be thinking, why am I writing about pollution masks in a writeup for clear skin. So read this out now, Statistics says pollutants present in the air today not only can cause difficulty in breathing or reduce the functioning of the lungs but can also strike you with some serious skin issues. So the next time you step out, don’t forget to wear a pollution mask.
Change 6. Green Tea
So this right here is the most go-to advice you would have come across when it comes to having clear skin. But the question is do you follow it? Many Dermatologists recommend drinking green tea which not only possesses antioxidants but is also inflammatory in nature. Green tea can also help you in getting your skin oil-free.
