Having glowing skin is more than just using makeup products like bronzer or highlighter, it is actually making sure you are healthy! It means you are "glowing from within".
One of my goals now that I am on my 30s is to have clear and bright skin through a healthier lifestyle. There are many ways to do this, here are some of them.
This might sound easy to me as a vegetarian, but honestly, I always find myself eating dairies, carbs, and junk foods all the time instead of my greens!
Nutrition is important not only to stay healthy, but also to get clearer skin. Some healthy foods that will help you achieve great skin includes avocados, tomatoes, walnuts, broccoli, and green tea.
Indulge in these, and add high fiber foods in your diet like brown rice, whole wheat bread, grains and oatmeal to achieve a healthy body from inside and out! You can also take RiteMED Fibermate to your diet (2x a day, with your heaviest meals). It is easy to prepare by just adding water, and comes in small sachet so it's easy to bring even when you're on the go.
DRINKS LOTS OF WATER
Drinking 8 glasses a day will rid your body and skin with toxins. By increasing your water intake daily, your skin will have more radiant glow. Some even say that it helped them with their acne problems, although this will take time and not happen overnight. Consistency is key!
Aside from losing weight, exercise is actually good for the skin! Sweating out purges your body toxins that clogs your pores. Make sure to take a bath after you workout!
I also love the "instant glow" I get after a day at the gym! Exercising tones and firms the skin, and when you get your heart pumping, your skin receives a good dose of oxygenated blood that gives you that natural glow from within. I hope I get back to my fitness life this month, and go to the gym at least 3x a week!
TAKE VITAMIN C DAILY
Vitamin C strengthens the immune system, and it also boosts our body's ability to absorb collagen and glutathione --meaning if you are taking collagen or glutathione supplements, vitamin c helps them be more effective! That's why I make sure not to miss drinking my RiteMED Sodium Ascorbate twice daily (morning and night time). I prefer taking this non-acidic Vitamin C so I don't have to worry about my empty tummy.
SKINCARE IS LIFE!
Last but not the least, make sure to religiously follow your skincare routine--especially before ending the day! I think my skin visibly improved when I started giving it more TLC when I got hooked with Korean skincare brands. 10-Step Korean skincare might sound tedious, so you simply just have to follow these simple steps:
1) Double Cleanse - Facial wash is not enough. Make sure to remove oils and makeup with the right product, before proceeding with your facial wash.
2) Apply serum or essence that your skin condition needs. It can either be for acne treatment, dry skin, dull skin, or large pores--there are products in the market dedicated for all these concerns.
3) Lastly, make sure to wear SPF every time you leave the house--rain or shine!
MY RITEMED 15-DAY CHALLENGE
I recently took the RiteMED 15-Day Challenge, and in all honesty, it was easier for me since I really take Vitamin C daily! I like that with the Sodium Ascorbate, I feel healthier and more energized even when I have a lot of work to do, and even during my travels where it requires physical and mental strength daily.
Meanwhile, Fibermate may be a new addition to my daily diet, but it was helpful in maintaining my weight even with all the food trips I did while in Thailand. I also feel full after drinking a glass of water with Fibermate, so I guess it also helps not only in improving my digestion but also in moderating my food intake!
I guess it's safe to say that I'll continue with my daily RiteMED supplements since they've done nothing but wonders and improvements in my overall health: from better skin, weight management, and it keeps me healthy at all times.
