Have you ever wondered how to get naturally glowing skin? Nutrient-packed and easy-to-apply
products are pretty high on every woman’s list. One of the most important aspects of achieving
glowing skin is to understand what your skin needs, and the proper way to care for it. Create
hydrated skin that glows from the inside out with a few conscious changes for a complexion
One of the biggest factors within your control is to products that are free from harsh chemicals.
You will want to choose lotions and oils that add the right amount of moisture for each area of
your body. Choosing proper products depends on the area of skin you wish to treat. A common
mistake is to use lotion as an all-over-the-body product when it is actually most effective on skin
that loses elasticity quickly or shows signs of age. Lotion is best applied on the face, neck, and
back of your hands for a creamy and consistent layer of moisture. With consistency, body lotion
can repair and make your skin firmer over time while increasing that naturally dewy look of
healthy, hydrated skin.
For thicker areas of the body or areas that are prone to stretching, try switching to more
compact body oils. Oils tend to pack in long-lasting moisture that seeps into deeper layers of
your skin to support elasticity and reduce stretch marks. Body oils are ideal for nourishing areas
of the body like the thighs, stomach, and upper arms. Whenever possible, choose an oil that is
free from sulfates and minerals.
As you find the right products to support your overall glow, choose products that use ethical and
reusable resources. Simple factors such as buying recyclable packaging means the plastics or
bottles you use can be reused and recycled. This means your products won’t be contaminated
with any excess chemicals from the packaging.
Another simple home remedy to help your skin glow is to look at what you eat and drink on a
daily basis. High-quality water and proper hydration are keys to supple, moisturized skin. You
want to continuously replenish your body with water so you can naturally sweat out and release
toxins in your body. Drinking the proper amount of hydration has many health benefits, but also
allows your skin to renew and regenerate faster.
Watching the number of acidic beverages you drink is also a good way to ensure your water
isn’t being absorbed by other liquids. A few examples may be to reduce the amount of caffeine
and or alcoholic beverages you choose to drink in a week.
It’s also great to look at your diet and increase the number of foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
Foods such as salmon, avocado, and walnuts are all easy ways to bump up your healthy fat
intake. Eating the right fats allows your body to retain moisture longer.
On top of these additions to your diet, a helpful routine to incorporate at home, is to gently dry
brush areas of your body to improve circulation. Not only does this bring blood flow to your skin,
it removes old or dry damaged skin cells. It’s important to exfoliate before you apply your
skincare products to keep your skin vibrant and blemish-free. When finished, pat dry and add an
even layer of lotion or oil all over the body and allow it to absorb fully for glowing skin you’ll love
With these few simple conscious choices in diet and products, you can create a naturally
healthy glow from head to toe.
