Naturally beautiful skin is something we all want. Right? Just follow these simple few steps for your natural, glowing self.
As the saying goes, “Beauty is only skin deep”. But many medics will agree, that it has many functions that many people are unaware of. It’s the body’s largest organ. Not just something to look at.
Firstly, the skin plays a HUGE part in our immune system. The skin is the body’s first defence against many germs and bacteria. It also plays a big role in protecting you against cuts, bruises and scrapes. Are there any sooks reading this? Great, because where would you be without someone else’s touch?
Just like your heart or liver, your skin can be well or unwell. Depending on how you treat it. Depending on how you look after it, it can be nourished or malnourished. Especially as we get older, it must be exercised and looked after; as we age our skin becomes thinner and drier. As we age, many unforeseen things happen to our skin too. Ugly things such as wrinkles, dark spots and oversize pores tend to show up like an unwanted friend during a date with a potential new boyfriend/girlfriend.
Ok, whilst getting old is out of our ballpark, the things that we can do for our skin are easily within our reach. There are many small, yet effective, things we CAN do for our skin to keep it looking good. These small steps include face/body scrub, toner, moisturiser, staying out of the sun, hormone levels, correct diet (a big one), looking after our stress levels and drinking heaps of water.
These are only a few things. I am sure you can think of many more.
The best way to nourish our skin is through nutrition. Plenty of fruit and veg. Don’t forget to wash it down with the water.
Your heart, liver and kidneys are all internal. So there’s not a lot you can do for them EXTERNALLY. Skin, is however an external organ. So there are heaps of things you can do for your body’s largest organ.
Skip the long, steamy showers and opt for shorter, cooler sprays. I realise this one’s difficult. Especially during the winter months. But try and reduce the HEAT in your shower. Opt for a slightly cooler one.
“Hot showers and baths can inflame the skin, causing redness, itching, and even peeling — similar to a sunburn — and can disrupt the skin’s natural balance of moisture, robbing you of the natural oils, fats, and proteins that keep skin healthy.” https://www.google.com/search?q=Danger+in+hot+showers&rlz=1C1ONGR_en-GBAU943AU943&oq=Danger+in+hot+showers&aqs=chrome..69i57j33i160j33i22i29i30.7752j0j15&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
