Drinks Lots of Water

Drinking enough water will help you fight a wide range of problems, including psoriasis and eczema. It does this by helping to flush out toxins from the body from your digestive system. So, in effect, it will boost and help you have a vibrant complexion.

Ideally, you need to drink at least eight glasses of water everyday. Drinking water helps you have fewer wrinkles as well. Water helps to maintain moisture in your skin, which increases your elasticity.


Use a Cleanser

Use a gentle cleanser to wash your face and then use cotton lotion to really clean your skin deeply. Your goal is to remove the layer of dirt and debris from the surface of the skin to reveal these healthy cells to breathe. When it can breathe, the skin is happy and healthy.

Take a Warm Bath

After a holiday or long flights, spending 30 minutes in a pool can help combat jet lag. It helps the body’s electrolytes to re-balance and normalize. If you have an ocean or a nearby swimming pool, swim for a while, and have a long bath afterward. You can also add one cup of Epsom salt to your bath water to further assist with detoxification. This helps the impurities to be removed and also soothes any sore muscles. With just a nice bubble bath, you can’t go wrong either.


Too much of the sun and alcohol’s most apparent side effect is dehydration, so be sure to replenish the skin with a moisturizer and hydrating serum. Face masks can also be used to further moisturize the face. Such types of masks will improve the skin’s ability to repair and will increase the supply of skin oxygen.


Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep will help recharge the body, which will improve the health of the skin. The growth hormone induces the regeneration of all the organs of the body, including the skin, as you sleep. So make sure you are getting a good rest.
