You have probably received tons of advice instructing on you how to take care of your skin throughout your life. However, it is important to remember that what may work for you does not necessarily mean that it will work for everyone. It also means that there aren’t any general rules that apply to all types of skin.

I have gathered for you a list of 5 things to do to keep your skin healthy:

Do Take Notice of Your Skin Type.

This is the first step to get the healthiest possible skin. Once you understand your skin type, you will be able to choose all of the right products. There are many skin care products that are designed specifically for your type of skin and will help enhance your complexion significantly.

Do Drink a Lot of Water.

You may have already heard this piece of advice many times; drink plenty of water. Water is great for your body and especially good for your skin. Water helps rid the body of toxins, opens pores, and gives your complexion a youthful appearance. The problem is that your skin is the last organ to receive water and nutrients. It is also the body’s largest organ. That is why you should not only drink water, but plenty of it.

Do Cleanse Your Face Daily:

Cleansing is a must for all skin care routines. Think about it, you can’t apply any creams or wear makeup if dirt and grime is already covering your skin. It is recommended that those with dry skin only use a cleanser at night and a toner in the morning. If you over cleanse you can strip the skin of its natural moisture, this puts your skin at risk for increased dryness throughout the day. If you have an oily skin type it will be best for you to cleanse both morning and nightly to remove excess oils from your face.

Do Stay Active:

Fitness is important for your overall health and has specific benefits for your complexion. Exercising regularly increases blood circulation to all your organs including your skin. This nourishes skin cells and gives you lovely radiant skin.

Do Clean Up Your Diet:

You are what you eat; that is a fact. The foods you eat show not only on your body but also on your skin. Try to follow a healthy diet for a while and you will notice how it brings a glow to your skin. Add greens, berries, raw tomatoes, fruits, and veggies to your meals and watch your skin brighten!
