7 Daily Habits for Beautiful and Healthy Skin

Taking care of your skin is not about going to cosmetic treatments and regular spa visits. It's all about your daily habits that will serve as the first line of defense against aging and irritations. Your lifestyle plays an important role as the products you use to have perfect skin all over your body. And by adopting the following daily habits you will be on the right track to having beautiful and healthy skin. 

1.   Switch to a healthier diet

Excess sugar is one of the biggest enemies of your skin. High glycemic index foods like candy and white carbs lead to glycosylation which weakens the collagen. So, to have gorgeous skin you have to switch to a healthier diet full of antioxidants, vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acids.

Try some of the healthy smoothies with kale, berries, and walnuts to increase the intake of these important minerals and vitamins. Avoid or completely stop eating fast food which is full of trans fats that cause skin inflammations like acne and accelerate aging.

2.   Find your ideal beauty regime

A proper beauty regime depends on your skin type and whether you are sensitive to some of the ingredients in cosmetic products. However, it also depends on having the patience to do it every morning and evening for the best possible results.

Besides cleansers, always use moisturizer even if you have combination or oily skin to hydrate your skin. Since UV rays are responsible for aging and some skin diseases, using sunscreen on a daily basis will protect you and give you a radiant look.

3.   Improve your sleep

Sacrificing your sleep is one of the biggest mistakes you can make that will greatly affect your skin. Having at least 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep every night will regenerate your cells and rejuvenate your body and mind. This means you will look more youthful and avoid getting dark circles under your eyes in the morning. So, remove electronic devices from your bedroom and play soothing sounds to easily fall asleep and wake up looking refreshed.

4.   Make time for massage

Stress and tension make your body produce more cortisol which breaks down elastin and collagen – two chemicals crucial for healthy skin. Massage can help you to relax and avoid getting some stress-induced skin conditions like psoriasis and rosacea. Daily self-massage is something you can do over coffee and in less than 10 minutes that will leave you energized and with a healthy complexion.  


5.   Get yourself moving

Exercising every day sounds like too much work for your already busy schedule, but the truth is you need only 30 minutes to feel the benefits. You will free your body of toxins by sweating and get a healthier appearance. And the best thing is that you don't have to go through the soul cycle to have healthier skin.
A simple physical activity like walking will also have help your cells renew and slow down the aging process. Moreover, it will boost the blood flow all over your body and get more oxygen to your organs including the skin.  

6.   Start using a bidet

Every piece of your skin needs to be healthy, even the parts that are not visible which tend to be the most sensitive to irritations. One of those parts is your genitals which are exposed to the daily wearing of clothes and use of toilet papers. So, pick one of the available varieties of jet spray bidets and protect your nether regions from abrasive dry wipes. Above all, bidets will improve your hygiene and preserve already sensitive skin from bacteria and inflammation.

7.   Say bye-bye to bad habits

Nicotine reduces blood flow depriving your skin of oxygen and leading to discoloration. And while quitting smoking is not easy, it is well worth the trouble especially when it comes to your skin and overall health. Additionally, alcohol can be a damaging factor since it dehydrates the body and leads to more wrinkles. It also has inflammatory properties causing flushing of the skin and persistent redness as you continue drinking.


Having beautiful and healthy skin includes a series of lifestyle changes that sometimes seem hard and too demanding. However, take one step at a time so you wouldn’t overwhelm yourself and hinder your efforts. And in a short time, you will notice the first signs of radiant complexion and fresher look.
