In order to gain a perfect skin, we need to make some kind of sacrifices and also try a little harder compared to anyone who has been gifted with glowing skin naturally. There are different skin types and there are skin problems associated with them. A person’s face may vary in different facial skin areas. Variation in skin type is also caused by health issues or various other factors.

Here are some great tips for clear skin. These are all natural and easily accessible:
Nutritious and Fiber Rich diet- Diet is really essential for healthy skin as digestive problems result in skin impurities. Taking the right amount of micro-nutrients and vitamins is essential for clear skin. Food should be carefully selected. Fish, nuts, white meat, grains like brown rice, buckwheat and vegetables like broccoli, beets, and tomatoes are very healthy and good for the skin. More intake of fruits will leave you with spotless, clear skin.
Keep Yourself Hydrated- Drinking lots of water and juices makes your skin get rid of impurities. Water cleanses the body and eliminates the toxins and waste. It hydrates the body and removes excess oils and dirt. Drinking at least two liters of water every day gives the skin a bright and a noticeable change. It also boosts the immune system and rids the skin from dryness.
Avoid the Sun- The sun is a great source of vitamin D but it is essential to avoid the sun after 9 am. The UV rays are very strong and they damage the texture of the skin. Overexposure to UV rays can result in skin cancer. To avoid the sun, try wearing clothing that covers most of your skin and applies sunscreen with SPF above 45.
Exfoliate- Generally, we concentrate more on cleansing, toning and moisturizing and completely ignore exfoliation. Skin experts emphasize the importance of exfoliation as it removes the dead skin cells. Periodic exfoliation using natural products like gram flour, oats, orange peels, etc removes dead skin cells, dirt and oil from the skin and makes it smooth and flawless.
Leave Stress Behind- Stress hormones lead to excessive oil production which results in whiteheads. Sound sleep helps in releasing stress. 7 to 8 hours of sleep is required for an active mind and glowing skin. Your body will lose excess oils and regains the bright and youthful texture. Stress can also be relieved by practicing yoga and by listening to soft and relaxing music.
Physical Activity- Physical activity is essential for getting a flawless skin naturally. It increases the blood and oxygen flow to the skin cells that help in neutralizing the harmful effects of free radicals and oxidative stress and carries away waste products from the cells. Exercise is the best way to cleanse the skin from inside.
