Welcome back loyal luxers, I hope you had a beautiful day, today we will be explaining to you girls what is natural skincare. Many of you have been emailing us on this topic and we've decided to put together something that all of you will enjoy reading. Let us get right into it, natural skincare is caring for your skin in a natural and chemical-free way. Natural skincare advocates enabling the skin to take care of itself without any assistance from synthetic materials or chemicals. Natural skincare is about the inculcation of good habits in the way you lead your day to day life from waking up in the morning to going to bed at night. Most of the natural skincare measures are actually the same as those for body care in general. Speaking of bodycare, if you wish to see an article on it do leave a comment down below and let us know! ;)
Alright, after that brief explanation of what natural skincare looks like. Let's dive into details and see what these natural skincare measures are.
The first and foremost natural skincare measure is pretty commonly known. Most of you might have already heard of this. Yup, you got it right, it's water. Drinking lots of water every day. Roughly around eight glasses of water every day is a must. The reason being is that water helps in flushing out the toxins from the body in a natural way. It helps in the overall upkeep of the body and promotes good health for all organs, not just skin. Talking about killing two birds with one stone, there you go.
Secondly, regular exercise is the next thing on the table. It's something that most people either are too lazy to do it or simply don't have the time. Well, all it takes is 30 minutes! It's all about discipline. Exercise increases the blood flow that helps in getting rid of body toxins and keeping you strong and healthy. Exercise also helps in beating stress, which is the worst enemy of good health.
The next one might come as a surprise to some of you girls as some of you might take this lightly. It is general cleanliness. General cleanliness is another inexpensive way of natural skincare. Showering daily, wearing clean clothes and sleeping on a clean mattress and pillow are all part of general cleanliness. After all, clean skin is the key to keeping skin disorders at bay.
Healthy food and healthy eating habits are also highly recommended for natural skincare. Certain types of food e.g., oily food is known to cause acne and should be avoided as much as possible. Your diet should be a healthy mix of various nutrient providing foods. Raw fruits and vegetables are known to provide freshness to your body and help in getting rid of body toxins.
When the day comes to an end, having a good night's sleep is also instrumental in maintaining good health and in beating stress. As a natural skincare measure, a good sleep delays the slacking of skin. A recommended amount of sleep you should get every night is at least 8 hours.
Conquering stress is also another natural skincare therapy. You might not know it, but stress causes overall damage to body and health. Drinking a lot of water, getting a sound sleep, and exercise has already been mentioned as stress busters. Indulging in a warm bubble bath, listening to music, and playing your favorite sport are also good ways of conquering stress. Yoga is also another way of beating stress, and it is fast gaining popularity amongst the masses too.
When you're outdoors, regardless if you're heading to work or to the grocery store, make an effort to avoid excessive exposure to the sun by a cap, holding an umbrella or wearing long-sleeved clothes. Avoiding exposure to the sun is definitely a natural skincare strategy. Sunscreen lotions are also recommended as necessary.
Not to mention, a lot of traditional and homemade natural skincare products or measures are also known to be very useful. Such measures are not only natural and easy-to-follow but also relatively inexpensive. We'll leave that up to you girls to find out what those are, as there are just way too many for us to include in this article.
Besides that, a lot of natural skincare products are available in the commercial market. These include things like lavender oil, aloe vera, etc., which doesn't have any side effects. Well, with that, we've come to the end of the article. We hope that you've learnt something new today.
