Nonetheless, we appreciate the need to wake up every morning looking refreshed and reinvigorated, even before starting the morning beauty routine. Does this sentiment make one lazy? Quite frankly, no! It is rational to fancy having a naturally blemish-free skin as the foundation.

While we must continue using essentials and any other natural skin care product we find effective at yielding a glowing skin, it is important that we also consider the health issues related to skin care. These are natural means are easy and straight-forward.
#1. Drink Lots Of Water
By all accounts, this advice is quite a cliché. However, it has to be said. Being dehydrated negatively impacts your body, affecting how it works. Moreover, being in such a state makes any wrinkle more visible. You should also note that the body uses water for cleansing purposes. If it does not have adequate water to flush the waste material in our bodies, it will accumulate. This will be visible in the form of skin blemishes.
Importantly, you should drink water in the right manner. By the right manner, we mean that you should consume water slowly all through the day, every day. Chugging a lot of water at once negates the benefits you stand to gain from drinking the water as it hardly will be absorbed by the body. Alternatively, you can prepare yourself for numerous visits to the washroom. And, if it at night, you can expect this to affect your beauty sleep.
Additionally, if you tend to consume dehydrating fluids such as coffee or alcohol, it is important to make concerted efforts to hydrate before and after. For instance, in the case of a morning cup of coffee, take water as soon as you wake up to prepare your body for the cup of coffee you have to take.
#2. Make A Point Of Sweating
Approximately 20% of all the body waste is eliminated through perspiration. As such, it is important to keep sweating. Exercise or attend sauna sessions. If possible, do both.
If you prefer working out for a sweat, jogging, yoga, and even cycling are perfect physical activities for you. However, you should make a point of washing your face before and after the workout. When you sweat, your skin pore open up widely, and anything on the skin get absorbed pretty easily. After the workout, washing your face reduces the chances of the eliminated waste from being reabsorbed.
Exercising also has the effect of producing endorphins, which makes you happy. This, in turn, keeps your skin beautiful and healthy.
#3. Take A Bath As Often As Possible
There is no denying that taking a bath is exceptionally relaxing. It relieves any stress that you have, leaving you and your skin healthy.
To take your bathing game to the next level, brew a nice big pot of tea and add it to your bath. Of course, do make sure that your bath water is not dangerously hot before jumping in. Skin burns are painful, so lest avoid them

Having an ample supply of minerals in our bodies keeps our skins and hair silky smooth. For a good supply of sulfur, eat eggs, cabbages, broccoli, and radishes.
Another mineral to consume in good measure is zinc. Pumpkin seeds, poppy seeds, sunflower seeds mussels, and spirulina are excellent sources.
#5. Enjoy Being Naked
Every week, choose a day to have our face naked – makeup free. This will give your skin’s pores the chance to breathe unimpeded. However, if you religiously use makeup, make sure to use mineral makeup negating the possibility of absorbing harmful toxic chemicals.
#6. Consume Orange

#7. Whiten Your Teeth (With Charcoal)
