Getting Clear: Cheap Tips For Glowing Skin

Clean, clear, and healthy skin is a common enough goal of many people on Earth – male or female, old or young, rich or poor, etc. – but it can easily seem out of reach if you don't have the time, money, or energy to try out every new skin cure-all that comes onto the market. But does that mean you're doomed to a life of scowling at your own skin in the mirror every morning? If you're looking for a few beauty tips that can get your skin to look as glowing and fresh as all the ads you see on TV, then here's what you need to know.

Drinking Water

Water, the liquid of life – and for clear skin too, it turns out. Keeping your body hydrated is not only a wonderful way to avoid constant dehydration and headaches, but is also keeps your skin moist and healthy, which is the first step towards glowing skin. You don't need to splurge on $3 bottles of refined, expensively packaged water either – ultimately, even your tap water will keep you hydrated and healthy, and prevent your skin from sagging, drying out, cracking, or growing dull. For an extra boost, add in a few stripes of orange zest; not only will this make it delicious, but the limonene in the zest protects your skin against UV damage.

Face Masks

No, they're not just for rich old ladies at the spa – face masks are the skin equivalent of using conditioner for your hair; it helps smooth out the wrinkles and leave you with soft, silky skin. Your best bet for cheap face masks that won't make you break out is the internet; in particular, along with being very trendy right now, Korean face masks with natural ingredients and smells are particularly non-reactive and can be found for pennies per mask at online retailers.


The biggest skin wrecker you can have in this life isn't sun exposure or even acne – it's stress circulating around in your body. When you carry a lot of stress with you, it can cause you to tense up, creating wrinkles and fine lines in your face and causing your skin itself to dry out more easily and break out more often. To prevent your stress from ruining your skin, be conscious of when you're squinting or frowning, which can cause wrinkles by your skin and your eyes and boost your skin's elasticity by upping your consumption of soy (found in tofu, soybeans, and tempeh, just to start).
