Snack on Citrus

Need a little detox? Lemons support your liver and kidneys, and there’s a clear connection between healthy organs and healthy skin. Vitamin C-rich foods such as oranges may help prevent wrinkles, too.

Massage In Your Moisturizer

When we say massage, we mean massage. Rather than dabbing on your face cream, use gentle pressure, massaging it into your skin in a circular motion. Do the same when you wash your face. This simple trick will kick your circulation into high gear. Plus, it feels so good.

Wear Sunscreen

Protecting yourself from sun damage will make you feel better now (how much fun could a sunburn really be?) and later on. Wear at least SPF 15 every day (higher if you’re spending time in strong sun) to help prevent skin cancer, wrinkles and sunburn. Oh, and don’t even think about going to the tanning bed.

Get Busy in the Bedroom

Talk about feeling good: Having sex releases endorphins that give you that special glow nothing else seems to replicate (although Nars blush in Orgasm, $28, comes pretty close, as the name would suggest).

Eat Chocolate—Seriously!

We know, we know—everyone always says chocolate causes acne. But there’s no scientific proof on that front, so as far as we’re concerned, eat up! Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants that help protect your skin, and eating a small piece will send all sorts of satisfied, happy feelings to your brain.

Exercise

Another reason to take that extra Spin class: A good workout doesn’t just burn calories, it also helps deliver oxygen and nutrients to your skin. Hate going to the gym? Start a dance party—even if you’re the only one busting a move! Turn up the Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, get your blood flowing and have a blast doing it. Your skin will thank you!

Get Hydrated

Drinking six to eight glasses of water a day is beyond important for your skin—hydration starts from the inside out. Hate plain water? Take a cue from Emma Watson and chug coconut water, which is naturally sweet and chock-full o’ nutrients.

Refresh on the Go

Running around all day? Your skin doesn’t need to suffer just because you’re busy! Bring a pack of refreshing face wipes (like Yes to Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes, $3) along for the ride, and wipe your face down any time you and your skin need a boost.”
