6 feel-good skin care tips to give you a healthy, happy glow

Apply pressure

Everyone knows the benefits of using facial moisturizers, especially those with SPF to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays, but how you apply your moisturizer makes a big difference too.

  • Use a circular massaging motion and don't be afraid to apply pressure. This boosts your circulation and helps your skin absorb the lotion more easily, resulting in that warm, healthy glow.

Sleep in

If you want to look and feel rested and healthy, the only way to do it is to actually get some rest. After all, it's called beauty sleep for a reason!

  • Sleeping at least seven hours each night will help your skin maintain its elasticity and will get rid of dark circles or puffy skin under the eyes.
  • Do what you can to try to get to bed at the same time every night to maintain a healthy sleep schedule.

Use citrus

Citrus is a great natural healer for your skin.

  • Lemons help to detoxify your liver and kidneys, which leads to healthy skin. These organs are responsible for filtering out waste and processing healthy nutrients, which affects everything from your heart to your skin.

Mix up a facial

Once a week, give yourself a facial at home to save money and give your skin a natural boost.

  • Mix some steel cut oats with yogurt and honey, paint it on your face, and allow the mask to sit for 10 minutes. The oatmeal helps to exfoliate while the yogurt and honey moisturize your skin.

Exercise more

Exercise isn't just good for your heart and your muscles. It's also great for your skin.

  • Exercise helps to deliver oxygen to your skin, which makes it look more fresh and healthy. It also opens up your pores once you start sweating, which helps clean them out and get rid of the dull, flaky skin.

Drink up

Staying hydrated is very important for your skin.

  • Make sure to have at least six to eight glasses of water a day to keep your skin hydrated and well-nourished. If plain water isn't your favourite drink, try coconut water or unsweetened ice tea.
