We all want beautiful and spotless skin like those airbrushed models that we see on magazine covers and billboards. And, there are people with that good skin without putting on any makeup or using the airbrush tool over their photographs. Let’s admit it. We do feel a bit jealous when we see other people who have glossy and healthy skin because we never really get to enjoy that. But what if we told that even you can get the perfect skin you always wanted to have? Now here’s the thing. To achieve something, you’ve got to invest your time and effort in it. Beauty isn’t really a given to anyone. It’s a lot of hard work and perseverance that results in good skin.

In this article, we will share with you 8 important habits that people with incredible skin follow. If you practice these skincare secrets religiously, you’re definitely going to see the results within just weeks. So, let’s dive in!

1. They Sleep Well

Your body repairs itself while you are asleep and this applies to your skin as well. So, it’s vital that you get a minimum of eight to nine hours of quality sleep at night. Sleeping five hours at night and then the rest three as naps throughout the day isn’t counted as “sleeping well.” Also, you need to make sure that you sleep without any interruptions or waking up too many times. Going to bed and waking up at a specific time on a regular basis will help you achieve good sleep faster. Also, make sure that your room is comfortable, silent, and dark enough for you to sleep. Avoid using your phone/ laptop or watching TV right before you go to bed.

2. They Eat Well

A balanced diet is very important to maintain good skin, hair, and overall health. Try taking a few vitamin supplements if you think that it’s impossible to add all the nutrients that you want. Also, it’s not just about eating the right food, it’s also about eating them in the right proportion at the right time. Do not skip your meals no matter what and remember to drink a lot of water. Haven’t you ever noticed actresses and models saying that the secret to their glowing skin is nothing but just water? Don’t ditch this idea thinking that they are bluffing, because it is actually true.

3. They Keep Their Stress Under Control

If you get stressed, it takes a toll on your sleep and food habits. You might not eat enough or you might overeat to cope with the stress. Nobody likes to get stressed, but we all have to deal with it at one point or the other, thanks to the ultra-modern fast-paced life that we lead. To deal with stress, make sure that you keep aside some alone time. Enjoy a bubble bath, have a girls’ night, go out for shopping, or watch your favorite series and chill. Try to get into meditation and yoga every morning and before you go to bed to keep your body and mind relaxed.

4. They Keep Their Skin Clean

This is a non-negotiable if you want to have beautiful skin. Wash your skin in the morning, as well as in the evening after you get back home. If your skin is too oily or you go to the gym after work, wash your face in the middle of the day as well. Use a scrub once in three days after taking steam so that your pores are clean. Also, never go to bed without removing every bit of makeup from your face.

5. They Tone, Moisturize, And Sun Protect Their Skin

Use skincare products and follow skincare routines according to your age, skin type, lifestyle, and skin problems. Do not make your skin a platform to conduct experiments on. Try to minimize artificial products filled with chemicals and include more natural recipes in your skincare routine.

Your bed sheets and pillow covers can get dirty really fast. You don’t want the dust and dirt that accumulates on them to rub against your skin while you are asleep and cause skin problems like acne, right? So, try changing your sheets and pillow covers once every week or at least once every two weeks.

8. They Get Oil Massages
