Skin, and not just any skin but good skin, and beauty go hand in hand. When you are taking care of your largest organ in the body, it will glow and so will your confidence.

However, we are sometimes prone to dry skin, breakouts and other irregularities that pop up when you least expect it.

Good thing is, there are certain things you can do to make those bad skin days less and maintain healthy skin longer.

Here are some amazing healthy skin hacks that will definitely help you do just that.

Keep your skin clean

The first step to having healthy skin is observing high levels of hygiene. Throughout the day, we are constantly exposed to dust and bacteria. When these components get into contact with our skin, they can easily cause annoying breakouts. At the end of the day, ensure that you at least wash your face with warm water and a mild soap in order to prevent bacteria form thriving.

Use sunscreen

Considering the current change in weather patterns, we are exposed to harmful UV rays from the sun as the ozone layer continues to fade away. These rays cause premature ageing which is something none of us wants. If that isn’t bad enough, there is the risk of skin cancer. It is therefore a good idea to always apply sunscreen 10 minutes before stepping out. This will protect your skin from harmful exposure and keep your skin looking youthful and healthy.

Watch what you eat and drink

It’s no secret that what you consume directly affects how you look. Even if you have been blessed with good skin naturally, poor diet will still catch up with you eventually. In order to have healthy skin, you have to increase your water intake and have a healthy diet for the most part. You should limit your consumption of oily foods, sugary drinks, alcohol and other junk that do nothing to help your skin care journey. Smoking on the other hand is a big no! It has the potential to age your skin and break down your healthy cells. Focus on getting rid of bad habits and watch what you consume on a daily basis.


Dry skin is a common problem. It can be a challenging thing to deal with when you have tried everything and still feel some tightness and experience some discolorations that comes with it over time. The trick here is to find the right moisturizer for you. When buying one, go for a product that will tackle dry skin amongst other skin problems you may be fighting. This will help you kill two birds with one stone.

Get into a routine

Beauty experts continue to shout at the top of their lungs to get the message home on the importance of a good skin care routine. The good news is, you don’t need to have ten or more products for your routine. You also need to keep in mind that what works for someone else might not work for you so don’t be in a rush to use what someone else is using. Even if you have just two products for your routine, it can still be just as effective as long as you know what you are targeting and treating.
