Natural Skin Care - The Secret to Looking & Feeling Like New From the Inside Out

Do you know the secret to healthier looking skin? With all the millions of skin care products in the market today, and many of them being of very good quality too, I still believe it all comes down to our daily habits and how well we are treating ourselves and our bodies. You see, I truly believe that skin care really is holistic. If you really want to start having healthier skin and looking and feeling better about yourself, it all starts with becoming aware of what you are doing and what you are putting into your body everyday.

So below I've put together a quick list for you of a few of what I feel to be the top most important things, the "secret" if you will, to improving how you look and feel from the inside out. Really take a look at them and honestly ask yourself what areas of your own life could improve a little or maybe even a lot, and then start with just the first step.

1: Healthy Diet + Water + Exercise:
How is your diet? Are you eating a healthy, high fiber diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables? The truth is how healthy our skin is and how healthy we feel physically really comes down to how well we are treating our bodies by the food we put into it. If your daily diet contains a high level of sugar, fat or chemical additives, then what you're doing is polluting your body as well as your skin with excess toxins that it may not be able to get rid of properly. Diseases such as cancer thrive on excess levels of sugar and fat in the body. On the other hand, fresh fruits and vegetables containing high levels of nutrients and antioxidants can prevent disease and some experts would even argue, cure disease. However, eating a regular diet with plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, fiber, good proteins and carbohydrates, as well as essential fatty acids, will significantly help the body improve its detoxification and a clean body means cleaner organs, blood and also skin.

In addition, be sure to also drink plenty of water. The body needs plenty of water for proper functioning of the organs and also in maintaining proper hydration of the skin. And don't forget regular exercise too. Exercise is not only good for healthy weight management, it is also important for the body's overall circulation and oxygenation. Exercise gets the "body's juices going" and you just feel healthier and better overall after you're done. So the first important secret to looking and feeling good from the inside out is having a healthier diet, drinking plenty of water and exercising regularly.

2: Take Natural Herbal Vitamin Supplements:
Are you taking any vitamins or supplements everyday? The next secret to looking and feeling good from the inside out is to take a good natural herbal vitamin supplement. With our busy and hectic schedules everyday, it really is very difficult to get all the recommended amounts of vitamins and nutrients our bodies need on a daily basis so taking a good natural herbal vitamin supplement in combination to a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water and regular exercise, I feel is also essential. Look for a complete "whole food" concentrated vitamin supplement that is rich in vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, fiber, antioxidants, good probiotic bacteria, digestive enzymes, and essential fatty acids.

These herbal supplements are excellent for increasing energy and vitality, promoting good circulation and bowel regularity, strengthening the body's immunity and also reducing free radical damage. These herbal vitamin supplements can be found in a pill or capsule or also as a powder to combine with water. I prefer using the powder form with water because it also helps me increase my body's fluid level. Whichever form you prefer, both will be very effective. So the second secret to looking and feeling good from the inside out is to take a good natural herbal vitamin supplement daily.

3: Have Good Skin Care Habits:
How are your skin care habits? Do you have good habits? Another secret to looking & feeling good from the inside out I thought important enough to add to this list is the importance of having good skin care hygiene and habits. For healthier skin, gently cleansing at least 1X-2X daily of all dirt, oil and impurities is essential. Also equally important is to exfoliate your skin at least 1X a week or more depending on your skin. Exfoliation is important because it helps unclog pores by extracting old dead skin cells from the skin's outer layer surface. Exfoliation also helps control oil and improves the skin's tone and texture leaving it looking newer and fresher in appearance.

Lastly, I recommend also using a good toner because no matter how well you have cleansed or exfoliated your skin, there is always some dirt, oil or debris remaining. However with a gentle, oil-free, natural toner, any remaining dirt, oil or impurities are removed, and the skin is left looking and feeling clean, fresh and naturally hydrated.
