Nowadays, glowing skin is a sign that you are taking good care of not just your skin, but your whole well-being. Everyone wants to have that level of beauty. Influencers use expensive products to have that glowing and healthy looking skin. That is why most people think it is not affordable and achievable. Fortunately, that is not true. You can have glowing and healthy skin through these 5 bathing tips:
Temperature of water. It is winter season so everyone enjoys a hot bath. Although hot bath is enjoyable and relaxing, it tends to dry up your skin thus your skin won't be able to absorb the essential oils that were put in your bath. Your bath water should not be too cold or too hot. The temperature of the water should be enough for your body so that is will not lose moisture.
Moisturize your skin after taking a bath. Your skin will lose body oils and some moisture after taking a bath. A good alternative for losing moisture on your skin is putting lotion. Put the right amount in your skin after taking bath and your skin will be bouncy and glowing. One of the best natural moisturizers is Shea Butter, this helps your skin lock down moisture and it can also act as an anti-inflammatory if you have rashes and/ or acne. It is also for skin pigmentation. If your skin have even skin tone, it is easier for other people to see that your skin is glowing.
Put oil in your skin. The cold weather tends to dry up your skin even if you put on lotion. Putting on body oil on your skin is also a way to lock in moisture and it gives you that extra glow. There are a lot of natural oils you can use. But since it is the winter season, the best natural oil to use is avocado oil. Avocado oil heals dry skin faster and it has antioxidants as well so your skin will look young and glowing. Best to do this after using an exfoliator.
Limit the use of soap. Many people use soap to cleanse their whole body. That is good for proper hygiene. But using soap too much will dry up your skin. Use a soap that is gentle to you skin and do not use a soap that has micro scrubs if you exfoliate weekly. Those kinds of soaps can irritate your skin and remove all your body oils and moisture.
Exfoliate. Taking a bath and using soap is not enough to get you clean and remove all the dead skin cells in your body. Dead skin cells can make your skin look dry and dull. The best way to remove them is to exfoliate. You do not have to do this daily as well. Your skin might get irritated and will dry up faster than normal.
Of course these tips are not enough to maximize the glow of your skin. So here are a few extra tips to help not just your skin but also your whole well-being: Drink homemade detox water. Detox water can cleanse your whole body from within. Another positive feedback that detox water have is it helps you lose weight. So drinking this is like killing two birds with one stone. The easiest detox water to make is adding lemon and cucumber to your water. You can do them separately as well. Cucumber helps you hydrate your skin and lemons help your pores close. Do this daily and your skin will look younger. Sleep at least 6 to 8 hours. Sleep is very essential to your health because sleep recharges your organs to help them perform better. Since your skin is the largest organ in your body, your skin will get recharged too! Last tip is to exercise at least 10 to 15 minutes. It does not have to be daily, maybe 2 to 3 times a week just to have your blood pumping all over your body. Blood carries oxygen that can help your skin look bouncy so the more blood your body pumps all over your body, the more oxygen your skin gets.
See these tips are not expensive and they are easily done. With proper diet, drinking at least 8 to 12 cups of water daily (yes, you need to also hydrate your skin for even better results) and following these tips regularly your skin will be glowing and it will look healthier than ever!
