Simple Daily Skin Care Necessities:
Your skin needs time and care for rejuvenation and regeneration. Without basic care, improving your skin condition and tone would be a difficult task. This is why you need to follow these skincare basics to ensure a youthful, glowing skin.
a. Drink Lots of Water:
Make it a habit to drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water every single day.This is not just a common advice, water is essential for proper functioning of the body. There is fluid loss from the body due to evaporation and sweating and also via urination. This loss needs to be compensated by drinking plenty of water and juices but not soft drinks.
When water intake is not equal to water output then dehydration takes place.Generally fluid loss takes place in warmer climates, among those who does grueling exercise routines at high altitudes and in older people who don’t tend to feel thirsty.
The body is composed of 60% water which is required for various body functions like digestion, respiration, absorption, circulation, transportation of nutrients and maintenance of normal body temperature. When you are low on water the brain triggers the body’s thirst mechanism. Water is a non-calorie beverage and it is the safest way to lose weight.
Water energizes you and relieves you from fatigue. When you are dehydrated and tired your face looks really dull. The skin mirrors your health, so you should treat water like a nutrient and drink it. Water keeps your skin hydrated but it doesn’t remove wrinkles. Since water improves digestion it makes your face fresh and free of acne.
b. Sleep Well:
If you don’t sleep it shows on your face. You look irritated and tired. The solution is don’t skip your beauty sleep and do not stay awake till late hours in the night. Lack of sleep cause the blood vessels to dilate and this result in dark circles.
The skin undergoes repairing, restoration and rebalancing while you are sleeping. The dead skin cells give away to newer cells and the face gets an instant lift. All the hormonal and metabolic changes occur in the body while you are sleeping. So lack of sleep disrupts the body processes. Seven to eight hours of sleep is absolutely needed if you want a healthy skin. However, don’t oversleep it can cause cell breakdown, maintain a balance.
Fix your sleeping and waking time. Sleep on a soft pillow and also make sure the pillow cover is also soft.
You must exercise for at least 30 minutes every day. If you have skin problem like acne, psoriasis and rosacea take ample precautions before exercising, but don’t let skin problems hinder your active life. Dermatologists say that exercise helps to increase blood circulation that itself boosts skin health.
When you do any physical activity the blood carries oxygen and nutrients to all the cells, including your skin cells and makes it healthy. Exercise also helps to remove cellular debris and free radicals from the body and cleanse it from within. Sometimes, stress causes the sebaceous glands to secrete more sebum and this triggers skin problems like eczema and acne. Exercise helps to de-stress and this keeps skin problems at bay. Most important, exercise tones your body and makes you look beautiful.
