To have smooth, clear skin, get some sun and spend a lot of time outdoors. Use a sunscreen, too, of course. You could go walking, running, or simply go sit outside. Sunshine helps the body to produce vitamin D, one of the vitamins essential for healthy skin. Relaxation can reduce a great deal of stress. Stress not only makes you feel bad, it is bad for the skin too. A reduction in emotional or environmental stress factors can benefit your complexion.

Choose a moisturizer that has humectants and apply it to your face at night. Everyone sweats a little while they sleep, because of natural body temperature increases. This causes your skin to get dry, so keep your skin hydrated by using a moisturizer that is humectant.
