If you are a regular reader here, then you know how I feel about drinking more than eight glasses of water every day – skin fitness requires hydration. Drinking water helps maintain an acne-free, clear complexion.
By running fluids through your body you not only push toxins through and out of your body, but you also keep your skin supple, taught, and moisturized (with the help of products too, of course). But the problem is that some of us get bored drinking so much water with little flavor.
So why not add herbs to the water for some flavored pizzazz? On top of the added flavor, the herbs will improve your skin fitness too.
Purifying herbs can do wonders for maintaining a healthy complexion, especially for acne-laden skin.
Herbal teas—including mint, ginger, and cinnamon—cleanse the blood and liver helping your digestive system to push those pesky toxins out of your system and to keep your digestive system working regularly. The condition of your organs is often apparent by the clarity of your skin. So if your insides are in good condition, then so will your skin.
Here are a few more herbs beneficial to skin fitness:
- Pansy herb
- Birch leaves
Teas are a great morning beverage, but it wouldn’t hurt to have an afternoon and evening dose too. Most skin clarifying teas are caffeine-free so they won’t interfere with sleep or your coffee drinking, if you are so inclined.
One last tip … avoid sweeteing your tea with white sugar (white sugar doesn’t help skin fitness, at all). Instead, use honey or other natural sweeteners.
