This is something which you would be seeing on any blog related to health. But trust me water is a wonderful and cheap medicine for everything!
It helps flush out all the toxins out of the body, keeps your skin hydrated and healthy. After 8 hours of long sleep, our body becomes hydrated and we need to make it hydrated again as soon as we can. So make a routine to drink at least 12 ounces of water early morning. If the water is warm, it is better, as it would have a lot more benefits like managing weight, preventing obesity etc. Also, add some lime juice or honey for added benefits. But this does not end here. You need to keep drinking water after short time periods.

2. Exfoliation (Every week)
We may not even be aware, but our skin keeps producing new skin cells every hour. If not removed, the dead cells keep collecting in the outer layer of skin, and what we are left with is old, pale and dead skin. We have to remove this dead regularly so that new skin can come to the surface. Thus we need to exfoliate our skin regularly. But exfoliation does not mean that you need to buy expensive and branded scrubs. Exfoliation can also be done using natural remedies such as sugar and lemon juice, oatmeal and honey etc.

3.Moisturize (Everyday after shower)
Regardless of your age and your skin type, your skin needs moisturization daily. All your cleansers and face washes wash out the skin’s natural oils.
So you need to rehydrate the skin with the beneficial moisture and oil. Try to wash your face as less as you can, and always moisturize the skin with a good moisturizer, which does not clog pores and is light and not too greasy for the skin.
4. Sunscreen (Every sunny day)
Yes, sunscreen is very important for your delicate skin. It protects you from harmful UV rays and prevents your skin from getting tanned. Apply SPF of at least 15 to your face for the daytime to prevent tanned, sunburnt and wrinkled skin .Make it a routine to use sunscreen everytime you go out.
5.Wash your face (Every night)
Every day, your skin meets up with pollution, dust, germs, and bacteria. It is really not good to let it stick to your face for long.
Always wash your face before going to bed. Some girls also have a habit of sleeping with makeup on, which is a very harmful habit. Keeping makeup on while sleeping every day will clog your pores, allow the bacteria and dust particles to form pimples and acne to your skin, and prevent your skin from breathing. So it is really mandatory to clean your face with a mild face wash and apply a night cream before going to bed.

What you eat always reflects your health and skin. Continuous use of oil, spices, and processed foods in your diet can cause a dark, pimple prone and oily face.
Your face may also looky more chubby than before because of continuous intake of a lot of calories through processed foods.
On the other hand, use of juices like beetroot juice, carrot juice, orange juice etc. can help your body repair your skin from within. These juices are loaded with many vitamins and antioxidants that help in skin repair and rejuvenation. If not juices try eating some raw fruits like a banana, some strawberries, some blueberries and some nuts. You can also make a smoothie of all these good foods to get the benefits of all in one drink. So make a “new year revolution” to eat lesser processed and junk foods and more of healthy foods to make your skin beautiful and clear.
Exercise is really important to achieve a flawless skin. Whenever you exercise, the heart rates increase, the increased blood flow pushes vitamins, minerals, and oxygen into those capillaries. The increased blood flow rejuvenates damaged skin and also boosts the glow of the skin.
Better circulation means toxins would be flushed out of the body, and new cells would build up. There are dozens of benefits of exercise not just to skin but to the overall health and well being. So always try to have a workout session within the day, it can be walking, jogging, some pushups, yoga or skipping. You can also incorporate a mix of all these and divide them into different days of the week.
