Ways to Clearer Skin

At some stage in our lives we tend to want clearer, fresher, younger-looking skin. Well, it can be achieved without spending a lot of money and it can happen through natural means, without cosmetic procedures. What you must do is persevere, and if you follow the forthcoming ten tips for a better complexion, over the course of three weeks your skin will begin to look fresher and clearer. Here are those tips:

1. Keeping your skin clean is your first priority. It's best to cleanse your face morning and night with a gentle, natural cleanser that not only rids the skin of dirt and grime but then finishes with an antibacterial ingredient like tea tree oil.

2. After cleansing the skin, pat it dry and then spray a fine toning mist over the face to cool and help close the pores while they are clean. Let this mist dry on the face. My own recommendation is to fill a small spray bottle with witch hazel, and use this as the mist. I don't think you'll find anything better, and certainly not at the minimal cost of witch hazel.

3. When the toner has dried apply a very small amount of moisturizer over the entire face and neck. Look for a moisturizer that is made for problem skin types and contains antibacterial ingredients like tea tree oil and lavender essential oil. These ingredients are gentle but very effective at clearing the skin from blemishes and pimples.

4. Obtaining the right amount of restful sleep your body needs nightly will reflect in the state of your skin. Seven hours is generally adequate. Not enough sleep over a period of time will result in problems that are hard to cure such as loose skin beneath the eyes and dark circles.

5. The food you eat is of the utmost importance for healthy, clear skin. Make sure you are getting a good amount of fresh fruits and vegetables, and be sure to include healthy fats (like avocado) too, as your skin needs these in order to remain supple. Foods that are easily digested will help your system keep your skin nourished and promote fresh, new cell growth. Drink lots and lots of water also, as always.

6. In addition to cleaning your face daily with a gentle, natural cleanser, add a weekly scrub to the skin of your body and face. When using a body scrub start at your feet and work towards the heart, this helps eliminate toxins. Doing it the opposite direction will push the toxins back into your system. Use a very gentle facial scrub on your face and neck as these areas can be easily damaged.

7. Try an aspirin face mask. This kind of inexpensive mask often yields fantastic results on those people with open pores, pimples and acne. Crush about 15 aspirin tablets to a powder mix to a paste with a little water, less than 1 teaspoon and then apply to a cleansed face. Leave for twenty minutes to work its way into the skin and then rinse off and apply a light moisturizer. Try this weekly, after a face scrub. By what mechanism does this work, you might be wondering? Well, aspirin contains acetylsalicylic acid, which is in turn made from salicylic acid. If you're not familiar already with salicylic acid, it's used in all manner of skin products, from skin toners to acne creams, and rightly so. It's a beta hydroxy acid and is one of the most "active ingredients" you're likely to find to benefit your skin. It tends to alleviate virtually any type of skin problem.

8. Once a month use a home steam treatment to thoroughly draw out impurities from your face. Add boiling water to a basin or bowl and add two drops of tea tree oil. Place your face over this with a towel covering and gently let the steam open and cleanse the pores. Be careful not to let the steam burn your face. Finish with a slightly warm face wash. This is also likely to clear out your sinuses a bit as well.

9. Get out into the fresh air and take a walk, swim in the sea, ride a bike or just do whatever in the backyard. The exercise will boost your system and your skin will love it.

10. Take a fish oil supplement daily. Cultures that eat a lot of fish have clearer skin and the fish oil helps eliminate toxins from the body, which by now you likely realize is fantastic for your skin. I can honestly say I've taken fish oil, of one variety or another, every day for at least the last 15 years, if not longer. The mainstream media may have sent fish oil on an ongoing roller coaster ride (one week it's great, the next week it does nothing, according to them), but it's always had a place among my many supplements.

These ten easy tips will help you get that clearer skin you so desperately want. Remembering to make the lifestyle changes you need means later enjoying the benefits that will come with these alterations. A fresher, clearer and more youthful-looking complexion awaits you.
