What Is Natural Skin Care?

Natural skin care refers to caring for your skin in a natural and chemical-free way. ‘Natural skin care’ advocates enabling the skin to take care of itself without any assistance from synthetic materials or chemicals. Natural skin care is about inculcating good habits in the way you lead your day to day life. A lot of natural skin care measures are actually the same as those for body care in general.
Here are some natural skin care measures. 

Drink a lot of water
Drinking about 8 glasses of water every day is very important. Water helps in flushing out the toxins from the body naturally. It helps in the overall upkeep of the body and promotes good health for all organs and not just the skin alone. 

General cleanliness
 Another inexpensive way of natural skin care is over all cleanliness.  Daily shower, wearing clean clothes and sleeping on a clean mattress and pillow are all part of general cleanliness. After all, clean skin, exercise and healthy eating habits are the keys to keeping the skin disorders at bay. 

Regular exercise
Exercise increases the flow of blood which helps in getting rid of body toxins and keeping you healthy.  Exercise also helps in beating stress which is the worst enemy of good health. Making regular physical exercise a part of your daily routine is very essential. 

Healthy food and eating habits
Healthy food and a healthy eating habit are recommended for natural skin care.  Some types of food (e.g. oily foods) are known to cause acne and should be avoided as much as possible. Your diet should be a healthy mix of various nutrient providing foods. Raw fruits and vegetables are known to provide freshness to your body and help in getting rid of body toxins.

Good sleep
This is also an important instrument in maintaining good health and in beating stress. As a natural skin care measure, a good sleep delays slacking of skin. 

Beating stress
This is another natural skin care therapy. Stress causes overall damage to body and health. Drinking a lot of water, getting a sound sleep and exercising regularly has already been mentioned as stress busters. Listening to music and playing your favourite sport are also good ways to beat stress. 

Avoid excessive exposure to the sun
It is a fact that you cannot avoid contact with sunlight completely. However you can reduce the effect of the rays from the sun on your skin by wearing long sleeved clothes, hat and umbrella. Sunscreen lotions are also recommended. 

Beside all these, a lot of natural skin care products are available in the market. These include things like lavender oil, aloe Vera and many more which don’t have any side effects.
