You don't need expensive facials and spa treatments to have glowing skin everyday. What really makes a difference is your daily practice of taking care of your skin. Create daily habits that are healthy for your skin and your body with intention.
If you don't exfoliate already, you should. Removing dead and dry skin cells allows your skin to soak up moisturizers better and keep skin hydrated and healthy. This can be as simple as using a warm cloth to gently exfoliate your skin or you can use (one of my favorites) a konjac sponge. It is a very gentle way to manually exfoliate on a daily basis.
Another option is to use a chemical exfoliating face wash that contains salicylic or glycolic acid. These work by breaking down oils to remove dead skin and help prevent breakouts. The problem is that it's very hard to find a face wash that has these ingredients and is also safe to use. Always check your products on the Skin Deep Database and look for a rating of 1 or 2.
There are easy ways to detox your skin at home. Face masks including ingredients like activated charcoal or bentonite clay are great options. It's also easy to mix your own if you purchase these ingredients and mix them with honey or coconut oil.
If you enjoy baths, get a whole body skin detox by adding clay or epsom slats to a warm bath. It's great when you are fighting off a cold or just feeling tired and sluggish.
Moisturizing is important, it will be even more nourishing if you apply after exfoliation. There are so many options available, I prefer simple moisurizers with natural oils and beeswax. Some may seem heavy or greasy at first but they soak in within minutes to nourish your skin. Try my Renewing Facial Serum for a light and nourishing facial oil.
I can't write a post about healthy glowing skin without talking about diet. Our food is such an important part of our overall health and it has a huge effect on how our skin looks. Eat a diet full of organic vegetables and responsbility sourced animal products. Eating a diet low in grains and refined carbohydrates also helps to keep skin looking it's best.
If you have a juicer, green juices are amazing for your skin. The concentrated source of vitamins and minerals give skin that extra glow. My favorite is this omega juicer, it works well and the juice will last up to 72 hours so you can make a bigger batch at once.
An overall healthy diet will not only give you glowing skin but overall better health, more energy, and a stronger immune system.
