Following these dos and don'ts will not only improve the skin on your face but all over your body, which most of us neglect.
The path to naturally beautiful skin is easier thank you think. Whilst lotions and potions may help smooth things out, getting back to basics with your skincare regime, diet and exercise are just as important if you want a healthy glow. 

DO drink 2 to 3 litres of water a day
One of the simplest ways to help clear up your complexion is to drink more water. Drinking 2 to 3 litres of water a day allows your body to function properly, ridding it of toxins and keeping your skin hydrated. Water moisturises your skin from the inside, so drinking the recommended daily amount helps stop it from becoming dry, cracked and wrinkly.

DO get plenty of sleep
Never underestimate the importance of sleep. The average person needs around eight hours of sleep according to the NHS, although this does vary depending on age. Lack of sleep can affect moisture levels in your skin, causing it to look dry and red. Get those Z's in to keep your complexion smooth and youthful looking. They don't call it beauty sleep for nothing. 

Sleep, contrary to belief, is not for the week. It is for the strong.
DO eat well 
Eating a healthy, balanced diet is crucial for naturally beautiful skin. The powerful antioxidants and vitamins in fruit, vegetables, meat and fish support the growth of new cells, including your skin cells. You need to feed your skin with the correct balance of nutrients so that older cells can be replaced by younger ones.

DO exercise regularly
Exercising helps tone your body which, as a result, makes your skin firmer. According to Cosmopolitan it also increases circulation to bring more oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells* to give you a clearer, smoother complexion.

Exercise doesn't have to be a full workout routine, you can start with simple changes like taking the stairs.
DON’T skip the skincare routine 
Washing, cleansing and moisturising your skin on a daily basis is crucial if you want naturally beautiful skin. Find a skincare range that is made of natural ingredients and offers a selection of products so you can select the ones most suited to your skin type. Tropic Skincare* have you covered with everything from age-defying eye creams and brightening polish to hydrating masks and tanning serum all made from natural, vegan-friendly ingredients so you know they’re kind to your skin.

DON’T forget to remove your make-up
We’ve all left our make-up on overnight at some point - but have you considered what this does to your skin? Good Housekeeping explains that forgetting (or simply neglecting) to take your make-up off will make your skin look dull and aged* and could even aggravate acne. Even if you only have a minute to spare, a simple cleanse with a face-wipe is better than clogging your pores up with make-up.

DON’T forget sunscreen
Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is one of the most important parts of skincare. Ignore it and you’ll see noticeably more wrinkles around your face and are putting yourself at risk of skin cancer. Keep your skin protected at all times by using a foundation with built in SPF and also ensuring you apply a high factor SPF when out in the sun.

All that is missing here is sunscreen.
