The skin is the largest organ of the body. It protects our muscles, helps hold moisture in the body, gives us our identity and is the first thing anyone notices at first glance. The beauty industry makes billions of dollars promoting products to keep the skin flawless and glowing, but you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to do so.
Here are five quick and inexpensive ways to keep your skin healthy and smooth.
Drink more water.
When the body is dehydrated, the skin becomes dry,cracked and brittle. Keep your skin looking refreshed and moisturized from the inside out by drinking at least eight glasses of water a day. You can also try alkaline water and coconut water that both hydrate the body better than regular tap or mineral water.
Get proper amounts of rest.
When you are tired, blood doesn’t flow efficiently, which can cause the skin to look dull and lifeless. Getting seven to eight hours of sleep nightly will help the body produce collogen which helps the skin remain plump and smooth. Sleep also helps in the process of skin cell regeneration. It’s no wonder they call a few extra hours of sleep beauty rest.
