As you might know, your skin is your largest organ and it protects all your inner organs from the elements, pollutants, dirt, dust and microorganisms. So, having a healthy skin is essential, not only for beauty but even for your health. Earth’s Wisdom today wants to share some easy natural remedies to keep skin glowing and healthy.

1. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera has been recently famous in the Western World for its therapeutic properties and especially for skin health. It has healing qualities and it can promote growth of new cells. It moisturizes skin without clogging pores. You just have to apply aloe vera every day after washing your face. You should first check if you are not allergic to aloe vera and if you are not so, only then should use it.

2. Virgin Coconut Oil

Coconut oil contains antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and healing properties. However, it should be kept in mind that it’s not good for every skin type. Thus, here too you should first ensure your skin is not allergic to coconut and if it’s not so, only then use coconut oil to get its outstanding benefits for your skin.

Studies have shown that coconut oil is a great moisturizer. It can also be used to take makeup off.

3. Effective Cleaning Routine

Washing your face too much can rob your facial skin of moisture and encourage your pores to create excessive oil to balance for too much washing. Washing your face in the morning, just before going to bed and whenever you worked up a sweat in between is an effective cleaning routine.

4. Sunscreen

Using a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or more can keep your skin safe from cancer and photo aging that can be caused by the damaging UV rays. Make sure to use sunscreen every morning even if there is rain or sky is cloudy.

5. Moisturize

Moisturizing your skin is very important to lock in moisture. Choose products that not only moisturize but also heal and have antioxidant properties. Don’t skip the skin moisturizing routine only because your face is oily. Applying the moisturizer just after a shower or after rinsing your face when the skin is still wet is advisable.

6. Short Showers

You may be fond of standing under hot shower and it’s good for your skin in a way because the skin pores are opened due to the heat and steam and ooze out toxins. However, doing this too much can snatch oil from your skin, leaving it dry, dull and tired. So, minimize your hot shower time. Cooling down the water during the latter part of the shower is also a good idea to enhance circulation, and get a more youthful and toned look.

7. Nutritious Food

To get proper nourishment for your skin i.e. vitamins and antioxidants, you should eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Studies have also shown that eating healthy fats like fish oils and avoiding processed foods with a lot of preservatives may have a direct relation to healthy skin.

8. Adequate Water

Just like any other cells in the body, your skin cells too need water to work well. There is a strong connection between healthy skin and drinking adequate water. Make sure you drink minimum eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day.

9. Avoid Smoking and Indirect Smoking

Whether you smoke or be in the company of a smoker, the smoke can cover your face with all types of chemical toxins. They make your skin cells undergo oxidative stress, causing premature aging of your skin.

10. Probiotics

Probiotic supplements can improve your digestion, boost your immune system and decrease inflammation and bloating in your digestive tract. A 2014 study has shown that probiotics can lead to healthy hair as well as noticeably glowing skin.

You should try to achieve glowing skin not only for beauty but for health. Sometimes nutritional deficiencies, stress, hormonal imbalance and other health conditions can make this mission difficult. In that case, take help of your healthcare provider or a dermatologist.
