#1 fat for skin
So when it comes to skin health, there are many foods you can eat but the most important one will surprise you — no, it’s not collagen, biotin or vitamins. It’s fat! Yes! Fat is essential for glowing skin. There are two types of healthy fats – omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-6 fatty acids are the building blocks of cell membranes. They keep the skin healthy and hydrated by preventing flaky skin. Omega-3 fatty acids nourish your skin and add radiance and suppleness to your complexion. So don’t forget to eat foods rich in Omega 3 – this includes fatty fish like salmon. Nuts and flaxseeds are good vegetable sources of omega-3. Alternatively, our traditional ghee also contains moderate amounts of omega-3. So you can cook food in pure ghee.
#2 Take a chill pill!
When we sleep, our body rests and repairs itself. Overnight, the body goes into repair and restoration mode, meaning it removes toxins, repairs damaged cells, and creates new ones, all while restoring our energy. So after good quality sleep, we look fresher, younger and more radiant. Active relaxation techniques such as meditation and conscious deep breathing are also known to calm your mind and body. Also, adequate rest is very important as it allows your mind to think more clearly, making your mind feel less cluttered with unnecessary thoughts.
#3 Exercise, even if it’s for 30 minutes!
Exercise increases blood circulation, which means oxygen and nutrients reach every organ quickly and efficiently. A body with adequate oxygen supply appears visually healthy. Just looking at your skin the day after a workout can tell you how exercise makes your skin glow. Exercise also causes us to sweat, and sweating helps remove toxins from the body. They start your day and boost your mood. You don’t have to stick to a strict workout schedule; The best exercise is the one you enjoy the most.
#4 Get a skin care routine!
Of course, we all want to have radiant, clear skin. So, to do that, you should start treating your skin in the same way. Your skin represents your overall health; The healthier your skin looks, the healthier you are inside. Additionally, “prevention is better than cure.” While makeup can hide skin problems like acne, pimples and dryness, it doesn’t make your skin healthy from the inside out. That’s why you need a skin care routine tailored to your skin’s needs. A clean face is the most basic requirement for glowing skin. Clean the face regularly. It is not always necessary to go to the salon. Even a basic cleanse, steam, scrub and moisturize routine at home can make a big difference. Furthermore, treating your skin with proper nutrients is an important aspect of a skin care program. Keep yourself hydrated and eat healthy meals at home. Try it for 15 days and you will see the improvement.
#5 Moms need care too!
After childbirth, to get a postpartum glow. Dr. Venkataraman recommends yoga and meditation to new mothers for their mental and physical peace. A must have resolution for new mothers. Mothers also need plenty of rest to keep their skin healthy and glowing. They can give the baby to the father, grandparent or caregiver while they rest. Drinking water is an essential resolution for your list. Water is essential not only for mothers, but for everyone. To regain their postpartum glow, new mothers should drink 8-9 glasses of water every day, and a glass of water before feeding the baby to keep hydrated. A good diet should be maintained to avoid junk food, greasy food and sugar (use jaggery instead). Eating a balanced diet that includes vegetables, green leafy vegetables, fruits, and nuts, staying hydrated, and getting regular exercise while giving your body enough rest will help with the glow. When you’re healthy on the inside, you’ll naturally glow on the outside.
