3 Simple Tips to Healthy Skin That Everyone Can Do!
There are many tips out there on how to keep your skin healthy, many are cumbersome and expensive. Here are 3 very simple tips that everyone can do and it doesn’t cost a cent.
- Sufficient sleep
Some people don’t place as much importance on sleep, yet it’s one of the most important and simplest things you can do to keep your healthy skin as well as your body healthy and your mind sharp. Through the sleep process your mind is resting, however, your body is working hard to recover from the day you’ve had. While you’re sleeping your body is repairing your heart, organs, blood vessels, muscles and skin. That’s why regular lack of sleep has been linked to increased risk of high blood pressure, stroke, kidney disease, diabetes, heart disease and even obesity. Not to mention that effects it has on your skin, lack of regular sleep will be visible on your skin with under eye circles, sallow skin, puffy eyes and because the skin is to having the time to regenerate regularly it can even lead to wrinkles! So remember, get enough sleep.
- Sufficient Hydration
Hydration does not only involve drinking more water. Yes, drinking a sufficient amount of water through your day is important for overall good health because it helps your body digest, absorb nutrients, circulate and excrete unwanted body pollutants. Being that your skin an organ that’s made up of cells, just like all the other cells in your body, these cells are made up of water. Lack of water will cause those cells to shrink which causes lack of plumpness in your skin thereby causing you to lose your skin’s radiance and accelerate wrinkles. Unfortunately, your body will distribute the water to all your internal organs first before it distributes it to the skin. So hydrating the skin involves placing water directly on the skin.
- Cleanse your face nightly
Removing your makeup and cleansing your face nightly is another simple process, yet so many women sleep with their makeup on! Sleeping with your makeup on not only can cause acne but it can cause premature aging. Acne results from clogged pores and although there are some makeup lines such as NudiSkin Cosmetics that does not clog your pores, majority of the makeup lines out there do. I know what you’re thinking, if you are a NudiSkin Cosmetics makeup wearer like me: you may be thinking that you don’t have to worry about this since it doesn’t clog your pores. Wrong! “Why?” you might ask. Well through the day your skin is exposed to free radicals, these free radicals oxidize your skin and breakdown the collagen on your skin which in turn results in wrinkles. Much like an apple, once you cut it in half and leave it exposed to free radicals it begins to oxidize and turn brown and old looking, that’s essentially what happens to our skin. If you’re in addition wearing makeup that clogs your pores, not only are you breaking down the collagen in your skin now you’re also allowing bacteria to brew in the clogged pores, resulting in acne and potentially many other types of skin problems. That’s why you have to cleanse your face and remove all the free radicals and allow your skin to hydrate and breathe.
