Beauty may only be skin deep but beautiful skin goes way beyond the epidermis. Nutrition, hydration and exercise are the key to good health. Our state of health effects all aspects of our bodies including the skin. Here we touch on the importance of good health and how it relates to a healthy, youthful looking you!
Nutrition & Hydration
As most people already know, a healthy diet is key to overall good health. A well-balanced eating plan provides the nutrients, minerals, fats, proteins and carbohydrates that keep the body functioning in a healthy and efficient way. Like any living creature, the human body works as a whole, not as individual parts. For example; the more efficiently your lungs ingest their supply of oxygen, the better supply is delivered to your blood cells which then carry it to the organs to utilize it, one of those organs being your skin!
Antioxidants, like EGCG found in Green Tea, can also be very helpful in preventing damage done to cells by free radicals. They can help to protect the skin from the harmful effects caused by the sun and other enemies of the skin. Green Tea helps speed the movement of younger cells to the skin’s surface increasing radiance.
For total well being, you should consider structuring your diet according to the “Food Guide Pyramid” from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This way you are assured you are receiving all the proper nutrients you need for your body to function optimally.
We could not exist without water. It is vital for all our internal organs, bones, blood production and digestion. Some of the benefits to keeping yourself well hydrated are:
- Helps to regulate the body’s temperature.
- Helps to convert food to energy.
- Aids the body in the absorption of nutrients.
- Flushes waste, toxins and chemical substances from the body.
As you can see, You Are What You Eat And Your Skin Reflects It!
Exercise isn’t just for trimming down your thighs and buttocks!
Research has shown that exercise increases circulation to the skin, delivering important nutrients, while washing away toxins — like cigarette smoke and pollutants.
A good work-out has also been shown to create ideal collagen-producing conditions. Collagen is the support fibers that keep lines and wrinkles from forming, creating an anti-aging effect on the skin.
Cleansing The Face
Always use mild soap and water when cleaning your skin. Avoid cleansers labeled “anti-bacterial”. They can strip the skin of its protective acidity. Look for a product that will add moisture to your skin.
After cleansing the face, it is imperative to moisturize. Moisturizers help to retain skin’s moisture while relieving dryness and minor irritations.
