Say 'ALOHA' to Healthy Skin

Healthy, clear skin is something everyone would be grateful for, but we aren't all that lucky. When it comes to my own skin, I love looking for natural ways to keep my skin looking healthy, I love trying out lots of different skincare products, but it's not always necessary to spend a fortune on skincare, most of what you need, is all through lifestyle changes, and what you put into your body.
I'm going to share with you a few tips that help me personally, and i really hope they benefit you in some way!

Drink plenty of water

Everyone knows that your skin benefits from keeping yourself hydrated, if you don't drink enough water throughout the day, not only will it make you dehydrated, it will also make your skin dehydrated.

Protect yourself from the sun

Sun exposure, over time, can give you wrinkles and age spots. To prevent this, always use sunscreen, and maybe invest in a cute floppy hat, you can protect your skin in style.

Don't forget your neck!

A bit of a random tip, but a lot of us forget that our neck is a very delicate area, i've realised that the hard way, i've always neglected my neck, and the skin is starting to line. It can start to sag and wrinkle if you neglect it for too long.

Take off your makeup before bed

Most of us beauty lovers take great pleasure in using lovely cleansers, toners, and other skincare products, but i think you'll agree with me that occasionally we will get lazy, and resort to a makeup wipe before bed, which is fine, i'm guilty of doing that a lot, as a lot of the time i'm too tired! But taking your makeup off with a wipe, is much better than not taking it off at all, who wants clogged up dirty skin when we wake up?!

Don't Smoke

Did you know that smoking not only affects your teeth, nails, hair and overall health, it also affects your skin, it can leave your skin looking heavily wrinkled and sallow over time, it affects collagen, which gives your skin elasticity. It can make you look so much older than you are.
I know, I know, it's not easy to give up smoking just like that. It's a habit that some people just can't break. But think about your overall appearance, skin, and most importantly your health.

Eat a well balanced diet

Eating a well balanced diet is important, in so many ways. Eating too much of one thing is never good for you. I'm going to share a few of my favourite foods with you, and each food has a load of benefits to them. 

Did you know Vitamin C helps to heal blemishes? You can find Vitamin C in a variety of foods, for example Stawberries, Blueberries, Oranges, Broccoli and sweet potatoes!

I know a lot of people try and stay clear of fatty foods, and too much fatty food is never good for you. But certain fats, for example the fats found in fish, act as a natural moisturiser for your skin.

Has any one tried nettle tea? Personally it doesn't appeal to me, but i've recently found out that they have an anti inflammatory affect and will help calm down breakouts and acne. Who knew?!

Beetroot is one of my favourite foods, mix it in with a nice salad, and i'll demolish it. It is high in Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Potassium and also sodium, and probably much more. Beetroot is not only super delicious, it's a must for skin health.

Last but not last, good ol' greens. Runner beans, Kale, Spinach, Lettuce, Cucumber, all help towards healthy glowing skin, and a healthy body.
