How to Have Clear Skin Naturally

Know your skin type. Different skin types need different types of care. It's very important to know what type of care you need to pick the best methods for clearing your skin. Here are some different skin types and their descriptions:
  • Dry Skin Dry skin usually has a dull appearance, feels dry and itchy and is sometimes sensitive. Dry skin must be hydrated regularly from the inside (with fresh water) and outside with (mists), as well as moisturized with rich hydrating creams or lotions.
  • Oily Skin Oily skin usually looks slippery and shiny and has a greasy texture. This type of skin is prone to acne. Oily skin benefits from periodic herbal steam treatments and clay masks.
  • Normal Skin This skin type is a gift. Not too oily and not too dry. Normal skin looks consistently plump, moist and vibrant. What a great blessing, but it still requires as much attention as the other skin types. It benefits from regular cleansing, toning and moisturizing.
  • Most people have at least two different types of facial skin at any given time. The combination of skin is frequently characterized by an oily “T-zone” area, which covers the forehead, nose and chin. While the skin around the cheeks, eyes and mouth is normal or dry. These different types of skin call for different treatments, so people with combination skin should assess their skin regularly and use different products on different areas of the face.

    Drink water. Water cleanses your body, helping eliminate toxins. It also hydrates you and rids your skin of dirt and oils. Try to drink half your body weight in ounces.-- For example, if you weigh 100 lbs (45 kg), drink 50 oz (1.5 l) of water each day).
Use natural cleansers. Facial cleansers with too many harsh chemicals can actually be harmful to your skin. Harsher chemicals have been known to strip                paint off of walls and bleach certain fabrics. Using natural, organic cleansers will help            your skin clear up faster and can be much more effective than unnatural cleansers.

Ensure a proper, nutritious diet. Eat lots of fruits, nuts, seeds, beans etc. Eating healthy, along with taking in the right vitamins and micro-nutrients can do                    wonders for your skin. Try going vegan for a week to see what it does for you.
  • Avoid meat, fish, eggs, fried foods, white flour and white sugar products, coffee, tea, soft drinks, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, including contraceptive drugs, and any other stimulating over-the-counter medicines. Anything that is artificial, man-made or processed will be lacking in some way when compared to natural, unprocessed products.

  • 5Wear less makeup. Wearing too much makeup will be damaging for your skin in the long run. Chances are people don't notice skin breakouts when they first see you. If you have to wear makeup, use natural and mineral makeup only.
