The best way to achieve gorgeous skin is to take care of your skin the best you can. That means protecting it from the sun and practicing healthy habits. It also means paying attention to hydration and being gentle with your skin.
Are you one of those girls or guys who can never achieve that perfectly even skin tone or that fresh dewy look? Well you’re in luck! Here are some tips for you to try to give your skin that even and gorgeous glow!
Below are 9 tips to help achieve that evenly glowing skin that you desire. 

1. Drink Enough Water
If you’re dehydrated, your skin is dehydrated, and by the time you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. Your skin is likely prone to harshness if you’re not moisturizing your skin properly, and drinking water is a big part of it. Make sure you are getting enough water throughout the day. The old standby is 8 glasses of water, but make sure you are drinking enough that you don’t feel constantly thirsty.
Tea and juice are a part of your water intake, though be aware that juice can add empty calories. Try adding slices of fruit (such as grapefruit or orange) or veggies (such as cucumber) to make your water more refreshing.

2. Skip The Hot Water
Very hot water strips your skins of oils. While very hot water can feel good on your muscles, using it can be very tough on your skin, leading to dry, cracking skin. Dry and cracking skin can be uncomfortable and tight.
Instead, take lukewarm baths and showers. Also, try to keep them short. Don’t spend 30 minutes in the shower. Stick to 5 to 10 minutes.

3. Use A Good Lotion
It’s important to moisturize after you wash your skin, such as when you get out of the shower or when you wash your face or hands. Pick one that’s right for your skin type. If you have oily skin, look for one that is labeled for oily skin. You may also have normal/regular skin or dry skin. Read the labels to see which lotion is right for your skin.
If you have especially dry skin, you may need to apply an oil or cream-based lotion at night.You may need a separate moisturizer for your face and body. For your face, make sure to pick one that says its non-comedogenic, as that’s less likely to clog your pores.

4. Pick A Gentle Soap
If you use a strong soap, it can pull the oil from your skin. In return, you’d need to add extra moisturizer, meaning it’s a viscous cycle. The better option is to choose a gentle soap to begin with.
Look for soaps that say gentle or for sensitive skin. Also, choose soaps that already have added moisturizers for your skin.

5. Blot your skin dry
Roughing up your skin with a towel after you get out of the shower will just agitate your skin and dry it out. Instead, gently blot your skin dry with your towel.

6. Always wash your face before bed
Whether you wear makeup or not, it’s important to wash your face before bed. Leaving makeup on is never a good idea, and you’ll have grime, oil, and dirt on your face from the day.
Pick a cleanser that’s appropriate for your skin, whether you have oily, normal, or dry skin. The label will help you choose. You can also just use a gentle soap.Don’t forget to add lotion after you wash.

7. Get your fruits and veggies
A healthy diet gives you healthy skin from inside. Therefore, making sure you are getting all the right nutrients in your diet is an important step to creating beautiful skin. Also, a healthy diet helps cut down on acne.
Make sure to include fruits and veggies at every meal. In addition, eat lean proteins, such as chicken and fish, healthy fats such as nuts, avocados, and fish, whole grains, and low-fat dairy.

8. Protect your skin from the sun
While having darker skin does offer some protection from the sun, the sun can still damage your skin over time, and protecting your skin can keep it looking beautiful. Slathering on sunscreen is a good way to protect your skin from the sun. Put it on every day for the best protection.
Choose one that is SPF 30 or higher and that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Try to pick one that is water resistant in case you sweat it off, and reapply it every 2 hours or after sweating, swimming, or drying off your skin. However, sunscreen alone isn’t sufficient to protect your skin from the sun.
One way to make it easier is to choose a daily moisturizer that has a built-in sunscreen. In addition, check to make sure your lip balm also has sunscreen. Clothing can also block harmful rays from hitting your skin. It can fit loosely, but tighter weave clothing is better than loose weave for blocking rays. Pick long-sleeved shirts and long pants. Don’t forget a wide-brim hat and sunglasses. Also, you can look for clothing that has built-in sun protection.
One of the best ways to protect yourself against the sun is to avoid it as much as possible when it’s at its strongest. Between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., stay indoors as much as possible. When you are outside, find shade or use an umbrella. Also, don’t be fooled by the clouds. You can still get damaging rays on cloudy days. You can also get reflected sun off of light surfaces, such as snow, concrete, and any surface that is painted white or light colored.

9. Skip smoking
You already know that smoking is bad for your lungs. However, you may not know that smoking is also bad for your skin. Smoking can make your skin look much older than it actually is.
Smoking means your skin gets less oxygen. In turn, not as many nutrients are carried to your skin cells, which can result in more lines and wrinkles.
