Plenty of H20 Drinking eight glasses of water, whether it’s coconut-enriched or straight from the tap, will help keep your skin healthy and well-hydrated. It’s also important to include plenty of water-rich veggies like cucumber, spinach, bell peppers and cauliflower as part of a balanced diet – all of these are made up of 90% water and are naturally low in calories.

More shut-eye Up at the crack of dawn to run errands before work and not falling into bed until gone midnight? We know that getting the eight hours of sleep experts recommend is not always do-able but a few extra zzzs will help rejuvenate your skin and give your skincare time to do its thing. So switch off Netflix, put down your phone and hit the pillow an hour earlier when you get the chance. Your skin will thank you for it.

Regular exercise Whether you go for a quick run before work or do regular fitness classes or yoga – any type of exercise that speeds up your heart rate is a step in the right direction to healthy and more radiant skin. Exercise also helps reduce stress, which can cause skin issues like acne – so the next time you’re thinking of skipping the gym, let a clear, glowing complexion be your motivator.
