We all want natural smooth skin which is well hydrated, supple and radiant. Your skin is a window to your health, becoming dull and lifeless when it is not taken care of and glowing when you follow a healthy lifestyle pattern. The skin works hard and needs to be taken care of. So follow some simple ways to keep your skin strong, healthy and radiant.

  • Coconut Oil for Radiant Skin

Using virgin coconut oil is a great way of keeping your skin radiant. It has the power to rejuvenate damaged skin cells and heals and repairs your skin. It also has antioxidant properties and destroys free radicals hence, protecting your skin from ageing. Use coconut oil to give your skin a healthy-looking texture and leaving it with a subtle glow.

  • Take Vitamin C

Vitamin C helps fight age spots, sun damage and contributes to a bright healthy skin. A combination of vitamin C and E if taken together, provides the skin with natural sun-protection and increases the skin’s ability to fight the harmful damages caused by exposure to sun’s rays. Take vitamin C rich foods such as bell peppers, chili peppers, citrus fruits, dark leafy greens and broccoli.

  • Supply Your Skin Vitamin B and vitamin D

Vitamin B helps the skin combat ageing and also increases blood flow to the cells. It also helps reduce skin irritation and redness of the skin. Lack of vitamin D, on the other hand, makes the skin susceptible to congestion and breakouts and results in the skin looking pale and dull. So ensure that you are supplying your skin enough vitamin B with squash, almonds and grape seed oil and sit outside to help it synthesize vitamin D from the sun to keep the skin radiant and glowing.

  • Follow a Healthy Diet

The continuous process of the older cells being replaced by newer ones needs a steady supply of nutrients. So, eating a balanced diet is essential for your skin to stay healthy and radiant. Consume a multitude of colorful fruits and vegetables. Beta-carotene which is found in carrots, pumpkin and sweet potatoes and lutein which is found in papaya, spinach and kale are essential antioxidants that will keep your skin glowing.

Consume shellfish, fish, eggs, tomatoes and broccoli to supply selenium to help your skin protect itself against the sun’s rays, age spots and skin cancer. Provide your skin the essential fatty acids from foods like fish, seeds, nuts and avocados, which act as natural moisturizers and keep your skin supple and smooth. You should also ensure that your skin is getting enough omega 3 fatty acids from oily fish and plant sources (flaxseed oil, rapeseed oil and walnuts) for protecting the skin against inflammatory conditions like psoriasis and eczema.

  • Take up a Detox Program

Your skin needs to eliminate toxins to look radiant and be free from skin-related conditions. Take up a detox program after consulting with your health care professional or you can also follow your own program to detox and keep your skin glowing and looking radiant.

  • Drink warm lemon water every day which helps flush out the toxins from your body.
  • Stop alcohol and sugar for a few days to help your skin and your body relax.
  • Stuff your diet with colored fruits and vegetables to give the skin nutrients to boost its health.
  • Cut down on those salty snacks to prevent swelling.

  • Don’t Miss your Sleeping Hours

Sleeping is one of the most essential factors which contribute to the radiance of your skin. While sleeping, the body releases hormones for the cells to begin their healing process. Hence, allow your body its natural sleep cycles so that your skin radiates and glows.
