Life can take its toll on us, and it mostly shows on our face. You can always tell whether someone is stressed or overworked by the dark circles under their eyes, the dull complexion, and the occasional breakouts on their face. Having a smooth facial appearance isn’t just about looking young, it’s about looking and feeling energised. With that in mind, here are a few ways to preserve the natural beauty of your face, no matter how much work you have to do.
Renew your complexion
The best way to get an energetic glow back into your face is to use a lot of citrus. The citric acid present in lemon helps keep the skin clear by removing dead cells, and its vitamin C content helps reduce dark spots by increasing the cell renewal process. Lemon also has bleaching properties that will help improve your overall skin complexion. The method couldn’t be easier; simply apply fresh squeezed lemon juice to your face and neck, leave for ten minutes, then wash off with lukewarm water. Next, rub cucumber slices on your skin to soften and moisturize. Do this once every other day.
Acne is a problem for a lot of people, even long after puberty. You could reach out to a dermatologist and spend a lot of money on treatment, or you could turn to the worst-kept dermatological secret in the world; aloe vera. Not only does it soothe sunburns, it can clear even the most stubborn acne. Aloe vera has antibacterial properties that help kill bacteria that cause acne, anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe irritated skin, and astringent properties that help heal scars. Plus, it moisturizes the skin and stimulates new skin cell growth.
The one thing that can give away exhaustion is your eyes, but sometimes it seems that no matter how much sleep you get, you can’t reduce the bags under your eyes, or the wrinkles that are slowly appearing. There’s nothing wrong with the changes that are occurring in your face, but it can kill your confidence. However, if you don’t want to try something as drastic as plastic surgery, then why not look into a thread face lift procedure; it’s a non-surgical alternative to having a surgical face or neck lift, and it can reduce the eye bags, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. It can even reduce the upper eyelid droop to make you look more awake.
Just like the other organs of our body, skin is also made of several cells. Skin cells like any other organ cells require water to function properly. One of the many benefits of water is that it can purify the impurities in your skin, get rid of dryness and wrinkles, and remove excess oils and dirt. Drinking at least 2 liters per day gives the skin a bright, noticeable change in less than a week. Water also helps your kidneys flush out toxins, hydrate your brain to improve concentration, and can help you lose weight.
