Top 6 Tips to look after your Skin

tree

As we said in our last blog, our skin is one of the most important organs of the integumentary system. Skin protects you, heals itself and lasts a lifetime if you look after it. The good thing is that by doing the following, not only will you have gorgeous skin but you will have a healthy lifestyle too!
 
Be Sensible in the Sun
You need to spend some time in the sun so your body can make essential Vitamin D for strong bones, muscles and overall health. However, you will need to protect your skin from sun damage. Sunlight contains ultraviolet (UV) rays, which are the main cause of skin ageing and can cause skin cancer. 
 
Best ways to protect your skin is to:
  • spend time under cover sipping water or sparkling water between 11am and 3pm
  • Be fabulous and cover your skin with clothes, a hat and some oversized sunglasses
  • use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 when out in the sun.

Smoking
Smoking is linked to early ageing of the skin. It's thought smoking reduces the skin's natural elasticity by causing the breakdown of collagen and reducing collagen production. Collagen is a protein that supports skin strength.
It also reduces blood flow to your skin, so your skin gets fewer nutrients and less oxygen. So to keep your skin supple and gorgeous, it is best if you don't smoke.
 
Drink Alcohol without becoming dehydrated.
When you drink alcohol, your body and skin can become dehydrated, leaving your skin looking older and tired. Drinking water can help your skin stay hydrated, preventing it drying out.
Always drink water or sparkling water in between each alcoholic beverage and never to excess.
 
Be gentle on your skin and treat it well.
Have a good skincare routine using great products. Moisturise well everyday with a special focus on any dry spots of your body.
If having a bath make sure the water is warm and you are using a cleansing bar rather than soap which will dry your skin. Pat your skin dry when you finish your bath.
 
Manage your stress
Stress can cause a multitude of problems to your digestive system and skin. It can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin and state of mind, you need to learn to manage stress. Focus on doing the following every day - pace yourself, take frequent breaks, meditate, and if you haven't already, take up yoga.
 
Have a healthy diet
A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best from the inside out. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. Your digestive system will thank you and your skin will too.
