Glow from the Inside out
I'm sure you have heard of the saying, "you are what eat" right? Well, the food you consume does play a major role in the overall health of your skin. Add some extra nutrients such as carrots and beetroots which contain vitamin A, excellent for ageing skin.
Eat more vitamin C, it's a powerful antioxidant that promotes cell renewal and healing. Add kiwi fruits, blackcurrants, blueberries, bell pepper and broccoli to your diet.
Selenium is also a powerful antioxidant that works with vitamins E and C to protect and nourish the skin. Also, selenium is great for hair growth and nail growth. One of the best sources of selenium are Brazil nuts. You can also get selenium from oily fish such as salmon, shellfish, wheatgerm and eggs.
Remove Your Makeup at the end of the day
It is quite tempting to leave your makeup on and just go to sleep but this is one of the worst things you could do for your skin. Your skin renews itself at night, leaving your makeup on will disturb the natural process of renewal that your skin goes through at night. Leaving your makeup on will clog your pores and possibly cause unwanted pimples and skin irritation.
