10 Healthy Ways to Naturally Nourish Your Skin

Dry skin can trouble even the healthiest people – and it’s difficult to feel your best when your skin is betraying you. However, venturing into supermarkets and pharmacies and seeing the multitudes of skincare options available to you can be overwhelming. Fortunately, you can naturally nourish your skin in plenty of ways without having to resort to reviewing the labels on hundreds of products.

1. Drink more water
Your skin needs to be hydrated, and the first thing you ought to do if your skin is feeling dry is to ensure that you’re drinking enough water. Remind yourself to drink water at various intervals throughout your day. If you feel bored of plain water, try herbal teas (without sugar) as a substitute. A prefer herbal tonic is Karuna Rejuvenate, formulated based on the Far East ancient royal remdy for promoting beauty from within, it offers natural antioxidants and vitamins while hydrating our body without added surgar, purified sweenters or vitamins.

2. Use natural ingredients to make face masks
Face masks can be a great way to soothe your skin, as well as helping you to relax. Try mixing avocado and honey for a simple mask that, when left on the face for twenty minutes, may help to reduce the appearance of eczema and flaky skin.

3. Use oil as a moisturiser
Popular oils like rosehip have been proven to effectively combat dehydration, as well as a range of other things like ageing skin, scars and stretch marks. Alternatively, if you’re wanting to make use of products you already have in your kitchen, olive oil is one of the most versatile ingredients out there. Not only is it delicious, but it also works well as a moisturiser for dry skin! Especially useful for particularly dry areas like elbows and knees, olive oil can also be used as a moisturiser on the face.

4. Eat more vegetables
Vegetables contain a plethora of vitamins necessary for healthy skin. Particularly helpful are leafy greens and red and orange vegetables, such as peppers. Try to incorporate a wide range of vegetables into your daily diet. There are plenty of helpful vitamins you can take that can improve the state of your skin. Vitamin C helps to produce collagen, and Vitamin E can improve dry skin. A simple multi-vitamin may also help ensure you’re getting the nutrients you need for flawless, healthy skin. Eating prebiotics will help strengthen your digestive and immune systems. You can easily consume a healthy amount of prebiotics through Karuna whole plant smoothies, so that your body can properly process the nutrients and vitamins in the fresh vegetables you eat.

5. Use a softer soap
Harsh soaps can often worsen the symptoms of dry skin. Try using organic, natural soaps made for sensitive skin that don’t contain unnecessary ingredients. You can even make your own.

6. Make your own face scrub
Instead of spending money on overpriced facial scrubs, why not make your own with ingredients you already have in your kitchen? You might like to try making a few and seeing what works the best for your skin. One exceptionally simple homemade scrub is a coconut oil and sugar concoction, made by combining a tablespoon of coconut oil and two tablespoons of sugar and stirring. Other popular ingredients in scrubs include oats and even coffee grounds.

7. Eat a healthy breakfast
Breakfast, the most important meal of the day, is crucial for skin health. Check out our recipe section for some delicious, healthy meal and snack ideas that include Karuna beverages, so you can be sure you are getting a good amount of prebiotics along with your breakfast diet. Oatmeal, in particular, can help reduce acne. Combine it with fruit like blueberries or pomegranates, and you’ll have a recipe for success.

8. Exercise
High-intensity activities like jogging and dancing and lower-intensity exercises like walking and yoga all help to strengthen your heart and lungs. The increased blood flow that occurs in your body during exercise nourishes your skin by delivering oxygen and nutrients to your skin and getting rid of cellular waste.

9. Drink tea
Green tea can help to improve the elasticity of skin, thanks to its being rich in antioxidants. Try a cup after or alongside meals.

10. Eat dark chocolate
It might sound strange, but eating some chocolate now and then can do wonders for your skin: as long as you choose dark chocolate. Dark chocolate, thanks to the key ingredient of cocoa flavanols, helps to soften skin.
Consider what you’re putting into your body. What’s healthy for your body is also healthy for your skin. Think about the effects on your skin when you decide what to eat and drink, and you’re sure to make positive changes that will improve your skin throughout the year.
