Skin is part of our personality. It is something that helps in making a good first impression, as well as important to how we view ourselves. Whatever your age, and whatever your skin type, keeping your skin healthy and glowing requires not too much of an effort, but seldom do we put that effort. In this article we’re going to share some simple tips that will help your skin preserves its glow and continue looking healthy and natural for years and years to come.

1. Honey and lemon, blended in warm water

Keeping your skin hydrated is one of the most important aspects of keeping it glowing. By drinking a mixture of lukewarm water with honey and lemon when you wake up, you are not only giving your skin the hydration it deserves but also detoxifying it. The vitamin C boost that this mixture delivers is the perfect way to keep your skin glowing throughout the day! And of course, if you don’t have lemons, drinking lots of normal water keep you, and your skin, hydrated all day long.
