10 Tips to Glowing Skin


glowing skin

It is undeniable that glowing skin enhances your beauty. But glowing skin is also an indicator of good health; meaning you are beautiful inside and out. For some it’s genetics, but if you put in the right work now, you can look forward to a lovely countenance for years to come. And remember, you need the skin all over your body to glow, not just on your face! Here are 10 tips to help you get that glowing skin, courtesy of Reader’s Digest ( http://www.readersdigest.ca/health/clean-living/10-secrets-glowing-skin )

1. Avoid Long Steamy Showers

Instead, opt for shorter, cooler sprays. Long, hot showers strip the skin of its moisture and wash away its protective oils. So limit your showers to 10 minutes and keep the water cool.
2. Apply Aloe Vera Gel Daily

Smooth some aloe vera gel over extra dry skin everyday. The acids in aloe eat away at dead skin cells and speed up the healing process. Buy a pre-prepared product or cut the end off of an aloe leaf, split it open and spread the gel on the dry area.
3. Cook with Garlic Every Day

A 1996 Danish study found that skin cells grown in a culture dish and treated with garlic had seven times the lifespan of cells grown in standard culture. They also tended to look healthier and more youthful than untreated cells. Plus, garlic extract dramatically inhibited the growth of cancerous skin cells.

4. Drink Plenty of Orange Juice

Orange juice is rich in vitamin C, essential for the manufacture of collagen, which helps to keep the skin smooth and youthful. Other foods rich in vitamin C include guava, kiwi fruit and red peppers.

  • Point number 6, really! Take multi-Vitamins daily?! Don’t mislead people, they are supplemental for those not getting enough of the vitamins due to dietary challenges. Advocating for a balanced diet would be the right thing here, other than supplements on a daily basis. The article is informative nevertheless.

  • This is the Most misleading article av ever read. Who wrote this??

    • waridi

      Well if you read it well well then you would have seen the authors name lol and what does a man know about glowing skin for females?

  • kenyanna

    You can tell it is not a serious article because she is talking of winters and summers to local readers. Guess she copy pasted this from somewhere. I would love to see her skin though…

    • Dear Reader,

      Thanks for visiting Capital Lifestyle Magazine. We value and appreciate your feedback.

      The author was inspired by a previous Reader’s Digest article about glowing skin, as she has mentioned. Instead of “winters and summers,” the author also meant to say “dry and rainy” seasons.

      The errors have been rectified.
