Not all are blessed with clear and spot free skin, which means extra effort is needed to maintain the shine and glow of the skin as it is the first thing after your smile that a person notices about you.

Having clear and glowing is a dream of all of us, especially women, but the fact is it remains dream for most of us because not all are blessed with spot free clear skin that requires minimum maintenance effort so that it remains clean and clear forever. So what should we do? Make peace with the situation or do the best we can to have the skin or of our dreams naturally?

Well, of course one should make enough efforts to have a clear, glowing, blemish free skin, how about some natural and not so expensive ways to get that clear skin naturally? Here we bring you best tips for clear skin and all they need is little effort from your end.

Clear Skin Diet

An old saying ‘what you eat is what you are’ goes perfectly with the quality of your skin because what you eat ultimately reflects on your skin. The diet you take provides essential nutrients to your body, which uses them for repairing damaged tissues, build new cells, mend collagen levels, produce enzymes, protein buildup for strong bones, etc. Following a healthy diet with balanced nutrition is your key to have glowing skin naturally.

Include as much fruits, vegetables, fiber, complex carbohydrates, lean proteins, etc. With less saturated fat in your diet. Berries are considered as the best food to have here as they are the powerhouse of antioxidants that work excellently for aging skin.

Another clear skin secret is to avoid too much of alcohol, smoking and drugs as they lead to pre-mature aging of skin thus leaving it dull and lifeless.

Hydration is The Key To Clear Skin

Do you find yourself asking the question ‘how to maintain clear face’ quite often? Then here is the answer: keep your skin hydrated as much as possible from inside as well as from outside. One of the basic functions of our skin is to detox our body through the process of sweating, thus it becomes important to drink a lot of water for preventing the chances of acne and have clear blemish free skin.

However, sipping on your favorite beverage like tea, coffee, soda, etc. will not be counted under hydration, as these things can never give the same result that water can give. Instead excess of caffeinated beverages and other junk food items will leave your skin more dehydrated rather than hydrating it.

Exercising & Washing Are Your Every Day Steps for Clear Skin

Your skin releases toxins everyday which lead to excessive secretion of oil by skin glands, which are also the prime reason for most of your skin related problems. Regular exercising and maintaining a cleaning, toning, moisturizing routine will help in stimulating blood circulation not only on your face but throughout your body.

Also sweating during exercising results in open pores, which cause unnecessary breakouts, thus it is crucial for your skin and body to take shower after exercise and wash your face with a good quality face cleanser that compliments your skin type to get glowing skin.

Remove Make-Up Before Sleeping 

One of the most important clear skin tips is to remove all the make-up nicely using a natural or over the counter make-up remover. Your skin also needs to breathe to maintain its youth and charm, if you sleep without removing make-up you will end up clogging your pores thus making it difficult for your skin to breath.

Additionally, adequate amount of sleep is also required to fix the damaged tissues of your skin. Also ensure that you are sleeping on a clean pillow and using washed quilts only as dirty linen might lead breakouts in your skin. Make it a habit to change your pillow covers once a week as all the oil, grime, saliva stuck on your pillow will get on your face while you sleep, which will again clog the pores and lead to acne breakout.

Also, ensure that you are tying your hair before sleeping so that they wont keep on touching your face while sleeping as oil present in your hair glands is also one of the reasons of acne breakout.

Maintain Good Hygiene 

Following good hygiene is not only good for your skin but for your overall well being as well. Using a herbal face wash in morning and at night to wash your face helps in restraining bacteria growth to have a clear skin. Avoid touching your face during day time as much as possible and even if you do make sure you clean your hands first so that the germs and dirt from your hands will not get transferred to your face.

Use only mild cleanser on your face and never use harsh wipe or scrub on your face as it may leave you scarred. If you have oily skin consider using alcohol free natural skin toner to remove oily skin, same can be applied for combination skin, but if you have dry skin avoid using toner. Instead apply heavy base moisturizer on dry skin and light base moisturizer on oily to combination skin for keeping it soft and supple.

Follow these simple tips to get clear and glowing skin naturally as much as possible to look beautiful ever after. You can also consider adding natural and herbal clear skin products to your cleansing routine to maintain the youthfulness of your blemish free skin.
