Avoid too much direct sun exposure:
Sun rays are one of the biggest causes for skin tanning, age spots, wrinkles, and pigmentation. So never leave home without applying a sunscreen of a minimum SPF of 15. If you have prolonged exposure to the sun, reapply sunscreen in 4 hours time.
Exercise help circulation going bringing fresh oxygen to your skin cells keeping then alive and healthy. Do Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week. The sweat that oozes out of the skin opens the skin pores and throws the toxins out. The open pores also allow the skin to breathe. Exercise also relieves stress, which is the cause for skin related problems like eczema and acne.
Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol:
Always the most important to reiterate – smoking and excessive alcohol dehydrate the body. Makes the lungs and liver both of which are responsible for removing the toxin from the body; to malfunction. So quit today.
Use natural moisturizers like yogurt, papaya, glycerin. They are never harsh to the skin and will keep your skin supple and soft. If using store bought moisturizers, then go for a gentle unscented one. Apply moisturizer every day.
Once again natural makeup products are recommended over chemical and harsh products. Never neglect your skin care regime, most important of which is to remove all makeup before going to bed. The skin should be clean and all pores open while sleeping to rejuvenate itself.
Lack of sleep causes puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. This is because when you sleep less the blood vessels under the eyes dilate. The body restores itself while we sleep. Although sleep requirement is an individual requirement based on metabolism, 7 to 8 hours of sleep is recommended.
Stress is perhaps the biggest silent killer of beauty in the body. It works silently in the mind to create trouble both physically and mentally. Keep your mind always engaged. Learn the art of mind control through meditation. Look into learning a new art form. All these reduce stress. Learn to say “no” to do more than you can manage.
More and more can be said about how important a healthy diet if for the body. By eating healthy and providing all essential nutrients to the body, you are challenging the body to radiate health. Eat more fresh vegetables and fruits. Also, eat only lean meat and fat-free dairy products.
Exfoliate once in a week:
In the past, when there was not soap, women used gram flour or rice flour to wash their faces. They need have to be instructed to exfoliate, as this did it in the natural course of their beauty regimen. Exfoliation at least twice a week will clear clogged skin and remove dead skin cells. Use either natural products or gentle exfoliates available in the market.

Remember, these efforts need to be consistent over a period of time to show results. But these breadth-taking results also longer than your instant commercial products give. And in the long term keep your skin glowing and allow you to age gracefully like your grandmother.
