Thinking about the care of your skin isn’t just reserved for your daily beauty regime. Nourishing your skin is an integrative process inclusive of non-toxic skincare products, optimal nutrition and mindful lifestyle choices.
Here are 15 healthy habits to incorporate into your lifestyle to naturally maintain your inner and outer glow and youthful-looking skin.
Check skincare labels and look for certified natural and organic plant-based ingredients in your skincare because they work naturally with your skin to fight free radicals, protect against inflammation, combat the aging process, and boost production of collagen and elastin.

Double cleanse your skin to achieve the most thorough clean that won’t leave your skin feeling dry. Start first with a lightweight makeup remover to sweep away makeup, dirt and environmental debris then follow with a gentle cleanser that will purify and deeply cleanse beneath the surface.
Dry, dead skin cells can build up on your skin, making it look dull. Exfoliate skin 2-3 times a week for a polished, healthy-looking complexion. Not only will it give you a nice glow but also promotes healthy cell regeneration that makes your skin look more refreshed.
A toner performs an important balancing act between controlling excess oil, refining pores, and removing makeup residue. A toner also helps to balance the pH level of your skin and remove environmental toxins.
Keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and glowing with a combination of treatments that target specific concerns and areas of the face. These include complexes or serums, moisturizers, and eye creams.
We all need some Vitamin D, but we do not need harmful UV rays. Avoid the “high sun” times, and when you are outside, always protect your face with a wide brim hat, sunglasses and a natural sunscreen.
Take time and treat yourself to some "quiet time" every day. Set reasonable limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy.
One of the absolute best things for your skin is resting. While you sleep, your internal systems continue working to regenerate at the cellular level. Give yourself the gift of rest and aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night!
Breathe deeply and exercise! This will flush out toxins in your skin and release your “happy” endorphins.
Eat a full-color spectrum of fruits and vegetables to nourish your body with the highest concentration of antioxidants and phytonutrients. Antioxidant-rich foods fight free radicals which can cause inflammation and break down collagen.
Shop for organic produce and animal products as much as possible to decrease pesticide exposure.
Begin to eliminate processed foods and instead, fill your plate with a wide variety of unrefined, whole and plant-based foods that are seasonal, organic, and in as close to their natural state as possible.
Simply resist refined sugar! It aggravates and inflames your skin thereby accelerating the aging process. To quell that sweet tooth, enjoy blackberries, raspberries and blueberries which offer you antioxidants and fiber as well.
The body needs water to perform major functions such as flushing toxins from our system. Aim to drink half of your body weight in ounces per day. For a digestive boost, start your morning with a mug of warm lemon water.
