Sleep is the body’s natural process of repairing skin cells damaged by exposure to excess free radicals. These free radicals can increase in number if the body is often stressed, exposed to sunlight, and pollution or cigarette smoke. If you are sleep deprived, your facial skin will look duller, which can lead to the appearance of fine lines and dark circles around your eyes (panda eyes). Make sure you sleep at least 7-9 hours a day and avoid heavy meals or consume coffee 6 hours before bed to get quality sleep. You can also use supplements for glowing skin.
Then, what else do you need to do to get a bright face?
Stress will not only make your skin duller, it can also increase the risk of skin problems, such as acne. Therefore, you need to manage stress to get bright and healthy skin. Managing stress can be done in several ways, such as exercising regularly, doing hobbies, and doing relaxation, yoga, or meditation.
Regular exercise can not only maintain a healthy body but also maintain the flexibility of facial skin so that the skin looks bright and youthful. Therefore, do light exercise, such as jogging, regularly for at least 30 minutes every day.
Use coconut oil
According to research, coconut oil contains antioxidants that can protect the skin from germs and exposure to harmful substances. In addition, coconut oil is also believed to be effective in treating acne and is often used as a makeup remover. Massage for a few minutes, then rinse with clean water or use a soft facial tissue. Leave a thin layer of coconut oil left on your face overnight, then rinse it again until clean the next day. If coconut oil is not available, you can also substitute olive oil or aloe vera.
In addition to the steps above, how to naturally lighten your face can also be done by not smoking or staying away from exposure to cigarette smoke. The toxic content in cigarettes and their smoke can make the skin dry, dull, and easily damaged. Given that everyone’s facial skin type is different, it’s better to consult with a dermatologist before you do the natural facial lightening method above. The doctor will help determine the right way to brighten your face and according to your facial skin type.
