6 Simple Ways To Get Better Skin

Having good skin not only makes you look better but also helps you to feel better. While it might seem like an overwhelming process to get good healthy skin there are some tips and tricks to help make it easier. Below are some simple ways to help nourish and love your skin more.

Eat A Well Balanced Diet

One quick and simple way to get better-looking skin is to eat a well-balanced diet. A well-balanced diet includes a diet filled with whole grains, fruits, vegetables and other nutrient-filled foods. Not only do these healthy foods help to keep skin clear but it also helps skin to look and feel better from the inside out. Some good foods to include in your diet for healthy skin include apples, bananas, carrots, salmon, walnuts, sweet potatoes, kiwis, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, cucumbers, spinach, kale, pears and even dark chocolate. 

Lemon Water

While water itself has a variety of healing benefits especially for the skin lemon water can be even more beneficial. Not only does water in general promote hydration which helps to reduce dryness and wrinkles on the skin but adding lemon can promote even more hydration. Lemon water is also a good source of vitamin C which helps to build the immune system and add a variety of antioxidants to the skin. Lemon water also aids in digestion which can help promote weight loss. 

Good Skincare Routine

Another great way to keep skin looking and feeling its best is to have a good consistent skin care routine. A skin care routine can consist of anything from cleansing to toning and moisturizing. Using systems such as the Le-Vel Thrive skin care system can help offer all of the benefits in one routine. Not only do these systems help to relieve dryness but they also help to tone and improve the texture of the skin.

Use Sunscreen

Many underestimate how important it is to use sunscreen on a daily basis even when the sun is not out in full effect. Sunscreen not only helps to moisturize the skin but it also works to reduce and eliminate UV damage. Sunscreen helps to keep the skin hydrated and supple and avoid any unnecessary skin damage. Using sunscreen on a daily basis can also help to prevent wrinkles.

Avoid Smoking

Smoking causes a variety of different health effects. One of the biggest health effects is causing dry and wrinkled skin especially on the face and hands. To help combat this avoid smoking and also avoid being around second hand smoke which can be just as damaging.


Another way to get good skin that is often overlooked is to exercise. Not only does exercise help boost endorphins which gives skin a natural subtle glow but exercise also causes sweat which works to remove toxins from the body. Exercise along with a good skin care routine for removing sweat and dirt is a great way to get better-looking skin. Aim to get at least 30 minutes of vigorous activity in a day. Some of the best exercises include running, jogging, walking, weight training, yoga and Pilates.

Overall, these are just a few simple ways to get better-looking skin. Some other key things include having a facial every so often, applying a face mask once or twice a month, taking supplements that can add nutrients to the body and being sure to keep dirty hands off of your face.
