Also include foods that are high in protein like eggs, chicken, kidney beans,lentils, chickpeas and cottage cheese.
2. Drink plenty of water
Water is the only thing that helps in flushing toxins from body. Try to carry a bottle everywhere and drink atleast 8 glasses of water everyday. The best way to consume water is to fill up a bottle with cucumbers, lemons,zucchinis, mint leaves and other such brightly colored veggies and make your detox water to drink on-the-go. Doing this gives you the nutrients as well as the hydration to help your body utilize and hold onto the water more efficiently.

A good sleep is necessary for beauty. Your body repairs itself when you sleep. By sleeping 6 to 8 hours, you will have a glowing complexion, less of those dreaded dark circles under your eyes and you’ll slow down your aging process. The skin produces new collagen when you sleep.
4. Be ingredient conscious
Ingredients affect your overall beauty and aging process. So whenever you need to choose them , you need to choose them wisely. Go for natural rather than artificial chemical based items.
5. Working out
Working out not only gives you a healthy posture but also improves skin life. A minimum of three hours of physical activity per week will result in improving your health. It improves your blood circulation, helps get rid of toxins, increases the amount of oxygen delivered to your skin, provides a boost of endorphins that reduce stress and calm your entire body, including your skin! However, if you’re heading out to the park for a run, never ever forget to wear sunscreen.
6. Consistent skin care regime
Following a certain routine can improve your skin by millions. Follow a consistent morning and night routine, and we guarantee that you will see a drastic improvement in your skin’s appearance. Also, do not, under any circumstances, go to bed without adequately cleansing it out. You will only invite a whole bunch of problems for your skin. Use a hand cream and body lotion for your hands and legs.
Our skin is continuously dividing and dead cells do accumulate on the surface. Exfoliating the skin helps in removing these dead cells and showing the actual beauty of your skin.
8. Make sunscreen mandatory
Sunscreen can help you out in the sun and you should always apply it an hour before going out in the sun. It prevents tanning and sun burns.
9. Bust the stress
Outcome of stress can be severe and we all have stress about something or the other. So while you can’t entirely avoid bills, work, your life and all the stress that comes with it, you should find a way to manage it. Meditate, drink a nice hot cup of tea, listen to music or make some time for anything you love.
10. Drink green tea
There’s a reason why green tea is so popular amongst health enthusiasts. It perhaps is the healthiest beverage out there and is enriched with nutrients and antioxidants that are incredibly beneficial to the body. It contains ‘catechins’ that are a form of antioxidants that prevent cell damage. It improves blood circulation, lowers cholesterol and blood pressure and improves the health of your skin. The ingredient EGCG that’s present in this tea also helps in weight loss by reducing fat absorption.
11. Give your face a massage
A good facial massage every other day can reduce the appearance of fine lines, tighten your skin and make it appear more radiant. Besides, it also makes you feel relieved from stress and rejuvenates your skin. You can use some moisturizer or coconut oil to get double benefits.

After all that your hair goes through each day , its necessary for you to take care of your hair. Cleaning and oiling hair regularly helps it stay strong and shiny. You should also avoid styling irons and dryers.

17. Deal with pimples the right way
Do not, under any circumstance, touch your pimples or try to squeeze them – you are only going to make the situation worse. Instead, opt for methods that will treat these pesky babies and remove them without leaving a scar. You can dab some tea-tree oil on the zit and be patient until it dries up. You can also use retinol or benzoyl peroxide to get rid of them. Use a face wash with a percentage of salicylic acid, and you can avoid breakouts to a great extent. Patience is key here.
18. Use basic dietary supplements
There are a variety of minerals and nutrients that our body needs , but the problem is that we don’t include them in our diet. Popular supplements include vitamin A, B12, C, D and E, calcium and iron, zinc and special products like fish oils and probiotics. Health supplements are essential because factors like alcohol, infections, and allergies rapidly deplete the body of its nutrients.
19. Cut down on the junk
Junk food is not a good type of diet. It’s actually not a diet at all. What you eat are just some sugars and added colors. They give you those pimples and marks. So avoid them seriously.
