Shiny skin can make you look radiant and healthy, whereas dull skin makes you look haggard and lifeless. You can get beautiful skin naturally or sometimes use products to acquire it. Or you can do a combination of the two. It’s not that hard and with a little discipline you can have radiant, to-die for skin, in no time. A nice tan doesn’t hurt either!

Hydrate your body properly. This means drink water and plenty of it. Nutritionists say 8 to10 glasses a day, which sounds like a lot, but if you space it out its doable. Water will also help with weight control, so it does double duty.

To have and keep shiny skin you also need to eat a balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, especially those that contain antioxidants, such as artichokes, russet potatoes, beans, blueberries, cranberries, grapes, oranges, watermelon, pecans and walnuts.

Exfoliate your skin to get rid of dry, dead skin and expose the finer, more delicate skin underneath. All you do is apply an exfoliating cleanser and use a loofah sponge in a circular motion. In addition, take care of your face with special products designed for this as well as other sensitive areas of the body.

When you’re finished, use a good moisturizer since exfoliation can dry out skin. You can also use body wraps and body masks to keep skin shiny.. Anything that increases circulation is beneficial to the skin, including exercise and massage. Try to establish a consistent routine.

There are several types of oil used on skin to add shine. One of the most popular is olive oil, which can be used for nails, hair and skin, so you will get a lot of use out of it. Other products include almond and baby oil, as well as shimmer/glitter lotion.

Remember, you want shiny skin, not greasy skin, so apply sparingly. Of course, the goal is to look and feel natural and to look better than ever.
