Yoga
 

Yoga

Daily yoga practice is one of the best ways to get clear and glowing skin. The various asanas in yoga are not just fun, but they also help rejuvenate and revive your skin. The physical, mental and emotional balance that yoga offers, works just as well as a regular skincare routine.

Running
 

Running

While your daily jog helps you lose weight and relieving stress, did you know that you’re also improving the health of your skin? It increases blood circulation and delivers a greater amount of oxygen to your skin, which helps repair it and increase collagen production. So the next time you are feeling tired after a good jog remember you’ve just done your skin a big favour.

Sex
 

Sex

What if we told you that the steamy hot session that you just had in the bedroom with bae has done wonders for your skin too? Yes, you read that right. Sex improves blood flow and the influx of happy hormones work together to make your skin look vibrant and glowing.

Hydration
 

Hydration

How many times have you told yourself that you need to drink more water, but haven’t gotten around to doing it? As your skin cells are made up of water, it is a no brainer that lack of it is only going to degrade the quality of your skin. There! We just gave you another reason to fill those bottles.

Sleep
 

Sleep

This is perhaps the easiest ways to get healthy, glowing skin. Getting a good night's sleep helps clear out skin, reduce under eye puffiness and reduce inflammation in general. Your body boosts blood flow to the skin while you snooze, which means you wake to a healthy glow. Skimp on sleep and your complexion can look extremely dull and lacklustre.
