Whatever skin care routine you may follow, (usually the one that best suits your skin type) make sure you are consistent with it. Cleanse, tone, moisturize and remove makeup before you go to bed. Don't let laziness or a busy day get in the way of your skin care routine. The only person who can take care of your skin is you, not your doctor, not your mother, but you!

Drink plenty of water
We cannot stress enough on this healthy habit. Drink 3-4 litres of water a day to improve circulation and eliminate the waste from your body. This will help give you a clearer skin and slowly but surely get rid of marks as well.
One more aspect of your life which we cannot stop nagging at you about is sleep! Get to bed early! Rise early! Early to bed, early to rise, makes you healthy, wealthy and wise. Clichéd as it seems, sleeping well has immense health benefits, and a clear skin is just one of them, well in this case, a major one!

Exercise and diet
Exercise well to stimulate proper blood flow and maintain a healthy diet so that it doesn't affect your skin. You are what you eat, they say. Eat well and exercise regularly to make sure you improve overall health, as this will reflect on your skin first!
So now you've got an idea about how all your previous efforts to get a clear skin have been incomplete. Most often we miss out on a few of these aspects and complain that we don't get desired results. Try to inculcate all these habits and you'll see a miraculously clear skin in the mirror which will make you wonder – ‘Wow! Is that really me?'
