Limit oily and sugar-loaded foods
Festivals are the perfect time for loading ourselves with sweets and snacks, without thinking about the consequences of how they can impact our skin. Try to lessen intake on oily food as excess oils can cause breakouts on your face. Also, an increase in the blood sugar levels can alter your hormones and end up giving you unhealthy skin.
Consume loads of fresh fruits and veggies
It is essential to eat fruits and vegetables that have a high water content as they are good for your skin. Kiwis, oranges, and lemons are full of Vitamin C, which not only help in retaining the moisture but also protects against ageing.
Sweat it all out!
Exercising is a must if you want to achieve that perfectly toned body and glowing skin. Working out for a minimum of half an hour a day can help in getting rid of all the toxins from your body and improvise the blood circulation.
