About Healthy Skin
What is healthy skin? Would you consider your skin healthy? Well, the truth of the matter is there are
many factors at hand when it comes to healthy skin. It's not just about being blemish free or staying out of the
sun. If you truly want radiantly healthy skin, then you may have to work for it.
When working on your skin don't forget the essentials of healthy diet, exercise, proper nutrition, getting a
little, but not a lot of sunshine and so on.
Whether consumed as part of a healthy diet or applied topically, antioxidant-rich nutrients are a vital
part of keeping the effects of aging at bay and maintaining radiant, healthy skin.
This brings up an important question. How do you take care of your face? Do you simply scrub it every
night with a harsh bar soap that was actually meant for your body, or do you treat it more delicately?
Comedy icon Lucille Ball once said that the secret to staying youthful is to live honestly, eat slowly,
and lie about your age. Indeed, Ms. Ball retained her striking beauty and zest for life until her passing at
the age of 78.
Many people these days have strict regimes when it comes to their skin. That is where the ever-popular
skin care systems fit in. You've surely seen them. I think you can spot one in any drug or department store, not
to mention the hundreds found in cyberspace. With all the advertising now days, most of us know that cleansing
our delicate mugs with a product meant for the face is highly recommended.
However, which one do you choose? This is actually not that difficult. You can determine your skin
type with a simple online exercise. Then you may want to find a cleanser and possibly a moisturizer to care for
your face. Those who are afflicted with acne should take a gander at the infinite options available. While using
proper skin care products is essential in acquiring healthy skin, it's not the entire picture.
In order to truly achieve healthy skin, you must adopt a few dietary habits as well. You always want
to eat right and get plenty of water flushing through your system. Don't forget that what we eat does excrete
through our pores. Think about that the next time you scarf down a Big Mac. With the right vitamins and minerals,
your skin has a much better defense against the elements that can cause damage.
Just like your internal organs, the largest organ in your body needs proper nutrition for
optimal health. Just what is this largest organ? Your epidermis, also known as your skin. By feeding your skin
the nutrients it craves, you will be rewarded with the youthful glow of a firm, healthy complexion.
One of the great misconceptions of healthy skin is a tan. For so long people thought a tan was healthy. Wow, was
that a mistake. In reality the sun has an awful effect on your delicate epidermis. In fact, it's the primary cause
of premature aging and wrinkles. So the moral of the story is wear sun block if you truly want healthy skin.
Also keep in mind that the body uses sunlight to create Vitamin D, so some sun is
important, but if you're getting any kind of burn then you're getting too much. And that luscious tan on some
your people isn't going to look so hot in 30 years. Keeping well tanned skin looking good is going to require a
lot more work than minimally tanned skin.
Finally, the way you bathe can also affect your healthy skin factor. Hot water is not recommended since it
strips the skin of its natural oils. Try tepid water instead.
