Edited By Stephanie Dawson
Your skin can tell many things about you, how healthy you are, your age, what you eat, or even how much you drink. It’s important to take care of your skin and keep it clean. Here are some natural ways to keep your skin clear:
Mint contains menthol which has cooling and cleansing properties. You can apply mint juice to your face every night before bed. You can also make a paste of mint leaves by adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and warm water. Apply this paste all over your body for beautiful and clear skin.
2. Wash your face
It’s important to keep washing your face with clean water using a natural cleanser. This will allow your skin to breathe and keep it germ-free.
Lemon works great as a natural exfoliate. Squeeze a lemon into a bowl and pour on a cotton ball. Wash your face then apply soaked cotton ball. Let it dry for 10 minutes and wash off with cold water. You can dilute with water if your skin is sensitive.
4. Stay calm
Too much stress increases production of oil that leads to clogged pores and whiteheads. Try to keep yourself calm and composed. Do things that keep you cool and relaxed.
5. Avoid soap and hot water
Washing your skin with hot water and soap can dry out your sebaceous glands which makes your skin dry and unhealthy. Sebum production is necessary to keep your skin clear and healthy. A natural soap can be used with lukewarm or cold water only.
Diet plays a vital role in keeping your skin healthy and clear. Include foods rich in water in your diet. This will enhance blood circulation and will nourish your skin cells, eliminating the waste that your skin cells generate. Choose fresh vegetables, fruit, and dark green leafy vegetables. The natural vitamins, minerals, and fiber in these foods will help optimize blood circulation.
7. Avoid too much make-up
Try to avoid excessive use of make-up products on daily basis. These products are chemical-based and may harm your skin, even causing rashes. You can try natural products or other products with less chemicals.
Papaya contains the enzyme papain and has amazing antibacterial and wound healing abilities. It’s also good for removing dead skin. Regular application of papaya juice can help remove freckles and brown spots from sun exposure.
Cucumber has hydrating, nourishing, and astringent properties which is good for your skin. The pH of cucumbers is same as our skin which is why they help restore the skin’s natural acid mantle. Regular consumption of cucumbers helps prevent pimples, blackheads, wrinkles, and dry skin.
10. Boiled cabbage water
Boiled cabbage water has amazing properties that help treat acne. You can apply freshly squeezed cabbage juice or you can eat cabbage leaves and juice.
