For those with a very little inkling about skin care, here is the 411. Being the largest organ in our body, our skin plays a major role in preventing the entry of harmful substances and microorganisms that could wreak havoc inside the body. So keeping it healthy and moist will only help us stay fit and healthy. If the skin gets dry or irritated, cracks can occur. These cracks are where most infections could occur. The skincare products we use should be mild, moisturizing, and free from scent and perfume.
Tips for a Better and Natural Skin.
Skincare should focus on these three main things: cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting the skin in order to keep it looking fresh, healthy, and glowing. Here are some recommended skincare tips.
1. Wash Daily
This seems rather obvious but you would be surprised by the number of people that neglect to wash their faces before going to bed. Our days are hectic. We get exposed to the environment constantly. Grime, dirt, dust, and oil accumulate in our faces, not to mention the makeup we apply daily. If it stays too long in our skin, it can clog pores which leads to blemishes, blackheads, or infection. Washing removes this debris. It is important to use a cleanser that is gentle on the skin with exfoliating properties to remove the dead skin and reveal the younger, fresher skin underneath.
2. Apply Sunscreen
I cannot stress this enough: always protect your skin from the sun. Besides diet, sun exposure is one major factor that contributes to the deterioration of our skin. We might not think it has that much impact but its effect is cumulative. Never leave your house without a healthy layer of sunscreen applied on your face and body, at least an SPF 15 will do. Make sure the sunscreen is labeled ‘noncomedogenic’ and ‘nonacnegenic.’
As mentioned previously, moist skin is healthy skin. There are a number of ways to moisturize the skin. One is to hydrate well. Sweat is one way for the body to keep the skin moisturized. Another is to use proven moisturizing products. Surprisingly, a new skincare product has gained popularity; CBD oil. It is a derivative of the cannabis plant. Using it won’t make you high but it can prevent acne and help stave off wrinkles because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Online dispensaries offer CBD products specially made for skin use.
Staying active, whether through running, cycling, or yoga, is a good way to enhance the circulation in our body and help remove toxins. Even a brisk walk around the block is enough to give your skin a healthy glow. Exercise always helps you sweat which aids in moisturizing the skin.
5. Get Enough Sleep
A sure way to keep your skin looking naturally beautiful and healthy is to get enough sleep. Sleeping is when the body starts cleaning out the accumulated by-products and toxins and throwing it all away. Remember to always wash and moisturize your face before hitting the sack for a night of even better sleep.
