Ahh, there’s something alluring about a beautiful woman with glowing skin. As a man, I love to see those lovely ladies looking good, and I have no doubt the ladies like a man that takes care of his skin as well!

Did you know that it’s actually pretty easy to keep your skin healthy and beautiful? Here are some things you can do:

Eat Up — The best way to keep your skin looking good is to eat the right foods.

Tomatoes and cantaloupes will help to fight off the free radicals that will wear out your skin.

Citrus fruits like limes, lemons, oranges, and grapefruits will produce collagen to keep your skin firm and fresh.

Green tea will prevent inflammation and sun-induced aging.

Dark greens will keep your skin producing healthy skin cells and

Fish like salmon and tuna will give your body a ready supply of Omega-3 fatty acids to protect your skin!

Drink Up — Drinking enough water is the key to having healthy skin, as water will promote the elimination of wastes.

If you don’t get enough water, your skin holds in the sweat – holding in the toxins as well. Drink enough water and let your sweat cleanse your skin!

Add some skin health-boosting herbs or a green tea bag to your water, and it will do wonders for your skin!

 

Did You Know: Taking aspirin has been known to cure dandruff, but a new study may prove that it’s beneficial for your skin as well! Taking aspirin is believed to protect the skin from melanoma. [1]

 

Care For Your Face — Using commercial face masks can be a good way to keep your face looking beautiful, but why not make one at home?

Mash up a banana with an avocado and some honey, or use yogurt and cucumber if your face is very oily. Add some jojoba oil into your face mask, and you’ll find your face has never looked better!

Go with a natural exfoliating scrub of brown sugar, and use a damp hand covered in the sugar granules to scrub away your dead skin cells.

Sleep for Health — If you don’t get enough sleep at night, you can bet that your eyes will look puffy and those dark circles will form around your eyes.

Sleeping enough will not only keep your face looking good, but it will give your body the chance to repair the damage the sun and pollution has done to your skin. Make sure to sleep at least 7 hours a night, and you’ll be amazed at how great your skin looks!

Apply Right — For those who like to use commercial creams, lotions, and skin care products, use them wisely.

Apply creams to your face when it’s damp – not wet – as damp skin soaks up nutrients like a sponge. Use non-comedogenic (won’t clog your pores) creams and makeup, and make sure to use warm water to wash your face instead of cold or hot water.
