5 Holistic Ways to Achieve Radiant Skin

You are probably longing for radiant skin (who doesn't) so you don't have to layer on tons of makeup during the Summer. This time of year your makeup may be melting right off your face. Not a good look, right?!

You may have heard that radiant skin comes from within which is absolutely true. However, environmental stressors like smoking and overindulging in junk food & alcohol strip your skin of vitamin A & C, and other vital nutrients causing blotchy, gray, inflamed, wrinkled, dulled complexion. Add in overexposure to the sun which absolutely causes photo-aging that creeps up as dark spots, that rough, weathered skin look plus pre-mature lines and wrinkles.

 

You might not know this but our bodies do need those rays of sunshine to convert Vitamin D, so it is vital to have 10 minute daily sun exposure sans sunscreen. Just make sure, ladies, to ALWAYS wear sunscreen when outdoors longer than 15 minutes.
 
So many things contribute to skin health. The list is long. To keep it simple, try these 5 holistic ways to bring on that glow.

 

5 Holistic Ways to Achieve Radiant Skin

  1. Get 8 hours of sleep each night. Your body repairs itself during sleep. A hormone called cortisol begins to build up if you don't get enough sleep which leads to inflammation, water retention, and poor blood flow. Enter puffy eyes & dull skin, no one wants that. Try a nice warm bath ritual with Float in the Buff before bedtime with a cup of herbal tea to signal the body it is time for sleep.
  2. Strive to drink a gallon of water daily. Hydration is key to healthy skin. Skin cells are made up of 70-80% water so if your body dehydrated, it doesn't work properly and your might break out, look more crepey, fine lines are more apparent. If you like, add sliced lemon and mint leaves for extra detoxing benefits. Plus, it is super refreshing.
  3. Reduce stress. Take a walk, meditate, work out, read a book, take a bath, garden, focus on breathing, or sit outside in nature. Stress affects us on cellular level. Stress shows up on your face as pre-mature aging. Cortisol, the stress hormone, shows up once again causing inflammation. Stagnant inflammation causes breakouts, blotchy skin, and an overall dull complexion.
  4. Eat more plants. Incorporate more plants into your diet such as berries, leafy greens, tomatoes, broccoli, carrots, watermelon and oranges. Feeding your skin lycopene, vitamins A, C, & B, beta-carotene, and other phyto-nutrients from the inside makes a huge difference in the development of skin cells and the functioning of your entire body.
  5. Up your skincare game. Incorporate a daily skincare routine with 100% natural skin care rituals. Cleansing, exfoliating, hydrating, masking, and moisturizing all help slough off dead skin cells, remove dirt, pollutants, purify, help reduce breakouts, brighten your skin, plump, leaving behind a radiant dewy complexion.
I encourage you to give these holistic tips a try for 28-31 days. That's is the average time it take for skin cells to regenerate and make their way to the top layer of your epidermis. Let the compliments start pouring in, gorgeous mamas.  For more tips grab my FREE guide 15 Secrets for Glowing Skin.
