Basics of Keeping Skin Beautiful

Everyone wants beautiful skin. Most of the time beautiful is equated with young, but skin does age eventually no matter how well cared for it is. However, there are some basic things to keep in mind all throughout life to keep skin beautiful and here they are.

Drink Plenty of Water

This suggestion is said so often that it probably either fails to be adhered to or people feel that they are already doing this and that they want a different recommendation for beautiful skin. The reality is that water hydrates from the inside out. There is no doubt that it helps plump the skin up and it helps flush the body- and the skin – of unhealthy toxins.

Limit Sun Exposure

One of the biggest things to age a person’s skin is sun. Try limiting exposure to it. If you cannot, always be sure to wear at least a layer of moisturizer on your face and exposed areas. The thin film of moisture is better than nothing at all. A better bet is to always use an SPF moisturizer or sunscreen whenever planning to be outdoors in the sun.

As for moisturizing skin, there are two excellent ways to keep it healthy and young looking. You can use coconut oil to help boost collagen production, keep rashes away, increase softness and moisturize. Instead of using traditional makeup removers available at drug stores, makeup can be removed with coconut oil. If you do not have coconut oil, look to olive oil. Add some to a cotton pad or cotton ball and gently wipe away all traces of makeup.

Beautiful skin starts from the inside. Make sure to eat healthy vegetables and fruits to get a good dose of antioxidants to help beautiful skin stay beautiful all throughout your life.
