These results aren’t something that will appear overnight, and patience and persistence are key for skin you can feel proud of. As you may have guessed, natural is best.

6 Natural Steps to Healthy, Glowing Skin
Drinking an optimal amount of water has many benefits for our body, including naturally healthy, glowing skin. Staying hydrated will also keep our lymphatic system flushed and will aid the removal of metabolic waste. This is essential for our bodies to detoxify, which encourages tissue nourishment and regeneration. Blockages can cause eczema and blemishes, which can make you feel self-conscious.
Getting the right amount of good quality sleep is another essential step to achieving healthy, glowing skin that you are proud of. Your mattress plays a key role in the sleep you get. If you have an old or uncomfortable mattress, your sleep could be compromised and this will become visible in your skin. If you feel like your mattress needs to be replaced, you can look at reviews and the differences between mattress sizes in Each Night’s guide.
Exfoliating helps to remove the top layer of skin and toxins, revealing a smooth healthy layer beneath. You can naturally exfoliate using a granular substance or an exfoliation tool. You should only exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week, less if you have sensitive skin. Making your own exfoliating scrub out of natural products in your home is much kinder to your skin than shop-bought products.
Moisturizing using a natural, cruelty-free moisturizer is key to getting the healthy glow to your skin that you dream of. Moisturizing will prevent dryness, giving your skin a smooth appearance. It will slow the signs of aging, making you look younger for longer. It can soothe sensitive skin, making you feel more comfortable in return. Moisturizing can also fight acne and provide protection from the sun.
A steam bath or a sauna will encourage your pores to open up, which will allow your lymphatic system to remove any toxins from your body. If you want to do this at home, then you should fill a large bowl or your sink with hot water. Then add some drops of tea tree essential oil and/or peppermint. You should then sit over this heat for about 10 minutes with a towel over your head to trap the steam.
Your diet will play a huge role in the appearance of your skin. Eating nutrient-dense, organic products and plenty of fruit and vegetables will do wonders for your skin’s natural appearance. To ensure you are getting the right nutrients to support your skin’s health and appearance, you should take supplements alongside your diet, such as vitamin A, C and E, Zinc, Biotin, Iodine, Niacin and Riboflavin.
The natural changes you make to your lifestyle to encourage healthy, glowing skin will do wonders for your health as well as your appearance. Finding the right balance is key and everyone is different, so make sure you do plenty of research into any lifestyle changes, to make sure they will work well for you.
