After two weeks of spending most of the day inside the house, you might be thinking, "What more can I do?" While you are most likely bored at home, look at the bright side: You have plenty of time to do things, maybe start a new habit. If you have recurring skin problems, this stay-home period could be the best time to start a new skincare routine, well, if you haven't yet. Plus, staying at home lets your skin take a break from pollutants and sunlight. So now, what must you do to achieve healthy and glowing skin? Here are 5 useful tips.
Regularly Cleanse Your Skin
The key to luminous skin? Regular cleansing! If you clear your skin from dirt, oil, and pollution particles that can clog pores and cause dullness, you'll have a healthy and radiant complexion. So wash your face with water in the morning and at night. Massaging a small amount of face cleanser on your face can also help to remove debris. Even if you are not currently exposed to outdoor elements, washing your face daily is still necessary.

Exfoliate Your Skin
One of the best ways to brighten complexion is by exfoliating. Exfoliation is the process of removing the skin's outer layer of dead cells so that the now-smooth and clear surface can reflect light and you'll look glowing. You can try using a physical exfoliant such as face scrubs two to three times per week.
Don't Forget to Stay Hydrated
Staying hydrated is the key to a healthier you. Drinking plenty of water, at least 8 glasses per day, improves your body's overall health and does wonders for your skin. Also, consume fruits and vegetables with high water content such as watermelon, cucumber, and orange. Always remember that to look glowing, you should be healthy from the inside.
Eat Antioxidant-Rich Foods
What more should you intake? The answer is, foods rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants decrease free radicals in the skin to help protect the cells from UV damage. Eat fresh fruits, leafy greens, and Vitamin-rich foods, and cut down on fats and sugar if you want to have radiant and healthy skin. Starting today, make it a goal to always keep a note of what you put on your plate!
Get Beauty Sleep
After you have done your house chores, what do you do next? Most of those on quarantine rest and sleep. Well, congratulations as you may now have completed the required 8 hours of sleep. Even after all these are over, never forget to get some more beauty sleep so you won't get saggy bags in your eye area, which is a sign that your skin is tired and needs to rest.
Surely, everyone will be surprised to see a better version of you after this lockdown!
