How to get rid of pimples quickly requires you to maintain healthy skin. While there are thousands of products and treatments available to help improve the quality of your skin, only a small percentage of these are natural.

Most beauty products contain harsh, damaging chemicals. Although treatments such as chemical peels and botox have become popular, there is no conclusive proof as to what most of these treatments and chemicals will do to the skin years later. If you want to have great looking skin without dangerous chemicals or procedures, here are 5 tips to help keep your skin remain healthy.

Tip #1: Nutritious diet. You’ve probably heard the phrase "you are what you eat." If you think about it, this old saying is quite true. If you want your body to function properly and look its best, you need to include the nutrients it needs and avoid foods that cause damage. For beautiful skin, you should try have more fiber intake and "good fats" in your diet; and avoid foods with a lot of sugar.

Tip #2: Drink 8 glasses of water a day. All cells need water to function properly. If your skin cells aren’t properly hydrated, waste products build up in your cells. Also, if you don’t drink enough water, your cells will retain as much as they can and you’ll end up looking puffy and bloated.

Tip #3: Circulation. To function properly, our cells need to get plenty of oxygen. If you spend your days sitting at a desk or remaining mostly immobile, your circulation probably isn't as good as it could be. Increase your circulation by getting more exercise, stretching, or getting regular massages. You can also use a brush to exfoliate your skin which improves circulation while removing old, dead cells. Not only will this give your skin a better look, it can also reduce the appearance of unsightly cellulite.

Tip #4: Stay out of the sun. Although a little sun is good for you, due to it providing Vitamin D, too much sun can age your skin. Use hats, clothes, or sun block to protect you from damaging UV rays.

Tip #5: Natural skin products. Traditional beauty products contain all many unnatural chemicals. Most are there as preservatives, which are designed to enhance color or texture. These chemicals not only have no value to your skin, some may cause cancer and other dangerous problems. It’s beneficial to use natural products if you want to look your best and stay healthy. Just be sure to check labels, as many products will claim they’re natural or organic, and only contain one natural or organic ingredient. Be wary of ingredients you can’t pronounce and look for certification seals to be sure you’re getting what you pay for. Not only will these help normal skin, they’re also less likely to irritate sensitive skin.
