We are what we eat….. We are what we do…..
Take care of your Skin as much as your Skin takes care of You…
- Keep up great hygiene: Wash your hands! – Wipe your cellphone with antibacterial soap – Change your sheets and pillow cases often – Avoid unnecessarily touching your face – ALWAYS remove makeup before going to bed, follow with a cleanser, toner, moisturizer and eye cream – Thoroughly rinse the shampoo from your hair – Avoid spraying hair products on your face.
- Seasonal changes: Changes in climate conditions can bring about the changes to the requirements of your skin. In the cold, dry winter months the skin loses moisture to the atmosphere. Even people with oily skin experience dryness. Dry skin can get further dehydrated and in some cases develop sensitivity. So during those winter days and nights remember to keep your skin hydrated by using a heavier moisturizer than you use during the summer months.
- Drink plenty of water to keep your system well flushed from toxins and waste.
- Protect your skin from harmful UV-ray damage by using lotions and creams with SPF – those are the best anti-aging products! Yes!
- Adequate sleep is a must for good skin. The process of repair and renewal is enhanced during sleep.
- Exercise regularly. Exercise brings oxygen and nutrients to your skin, and moves lymph fluids – helping in the prevention and reduction of cellulite.
- Smoking increases the amount of free radicals, uses up about 25 milligrams of vitamin C per cigarette, and damages collagen as it depletes vitamin C (necessary for collagen production)
- Always apply an eye cream. We do not have enough oil glands around the eye area, so we have to keep it extra lubricated.
- Try to detoxify your body. Some herbal treatments or sauna can be helpful in removing toxins from your body.
- If you want smooth lips you need to exfoliate them, as you do with the skin of your face and body. You can mix some honey and sugar to perform a gentle scrub, followed by a lip balm afterwords.
- Try to find some time to relax and rejuvenate yourself. Stress can be a trigger for acne, hair loss and dull, unhealthy looking skin.
