5 Tips To Clear Skin
As we go through puberty, sadly, every single one of us has to or has had to deal with the odd pimple, they can come at the most unexpected and worst time and unfortunately they can be quite noticeable and painful. These are a few tips to help reduce pimples and to keep your skin healthy and glowing:
Tip #1 Maintain whole body hydration. 
The human body is 70% water- we need to maintain our hydration to ensure our body functions the way it should; this is how our cells remain nourished, our organs work properly and our bodily tissues (SKIN) keep moist and smooth. 
You should aim to drink 1.5- 2L of water everyday 
You can flavour your water with lemon, lime or mint to make your water extra tasty
Tip #2 Eat a healthy and clean diet. 
It’s true.. we are what we eat. 
Eat well-balanced nutritious food
Organic food especially gives the skin what nature intended for us 
Choose low Glycemic Index (GI) foods!! Try and avoid carbs :( 
Your skin loves essential fats- Omega 3,6,9 and antioxidants 
Super foods packed with antioxidants:
Carrots/sweet potato 
Berries 
Tomatoes 
Spinach 
Brocoli 
Nuts and seeds 
Beans 
Salmon 
Green tea
Tip #3 Stress less. 
Under stress 
Cortisol levels rise (body’s stress hormone) 
Oil production increases- can lead to oily skin, acne and other skin problems 
So…
Allow time for adequate sleep and relaxation 
Exercise as much as possible (even just a 20 minute walk) 
Meditate 
Tip #4 Maintain good basic skin care 
Basic three step process: 
Cleanse- Cleans the skin 
Tone- Hydrates the skin 
Moisturise- Protects the skin 
Other important steps: 
Exfoliation- Scrubs/peels removes dead skin and helps the renewal process
Eye cream and eye masks 
Serums/medication for targeted concerns 
Tip #5 Ensure your skin is always clean. 
Wear minimal make up and insure you take it all off before you sleep (facial wipes are easy and quick) 
Keep your skin always clean; away from dirt and germs. For this keep your hands off your face and ensure your pillow cover is spick and span. 
All these tips are essential and fast effecting ways to get your skin to recover and glow!!!
