The skin is the largest organ of the body, and your goal is definitely to be smooth, soft, and radiant. But it is not always easy to achieve this. Despite your best efforts, you may not be able to cover the problem areas. The factors that are responsible for problem appearance are the existence of stress, a healthy diet, hormones, age, and your personal hygiene. Dry or oily skin or blemished skin are common problems. If your problem is not serious in the sense that you need the advice of a dermatologist, you can try some simple techniques to see an immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin.
We will cover the main aspects of an overall healthy lifestyle that promotes glowing skin. Exercise, a healthy diet, hydration, proper skincare, and many other things contribute to beautiful, healthy skin. But the main factor that affects everything inside out is stress. To stay happy and healthy remember also to enjoy life and do the things you want whether that is cycling, reading, playing video games, visiting a casino, or placing a bet, doing gardening, singing, etc.
You may not know that proper breathing helps to remove harmful toxins from your body that could otherwise end up on your skin. Yoga is a simple way to enhance your well-being and flexibility, your physical health, and your breathing control. Deep breathing during yoga has a healing effect, while sweat eliminates toxins resulting in glowing skin.
Cardiorespiratory exercises maximize the detoxifying properties of respiration, so their benefits are multiplied. Aerobic exercise raises the heart rate and improves blood circulation and respiration rate. It also reduces stress. Inhalation is through the nose and exhalation through the mouth. You can substitute climbing the stairs with any other aerobic exercise.
Pay attention to the weather
Climate and local weather conditions can have serious effects on your skin. If you live in an area with a dry climate, you may often feel itchy on your skin. Conversely, if the climate is humid, you may sweat frequently, and your skin may produce more sebum. So prepare properly according to the upcoming climate change in your area. Use different products depending on the season. Moisturize more when the weather is dry and do a deep cleansing when it gets wet. Also, do not forget your sunscreen all around the year.
Exfoliation is synonymous with healthy skin. It is much better than using a simple soap or shower gel because the small grains remove dead cells from the skin, improve blood circulation and open the pores. So, whatever product you apply afterward, you enjoy its maximum benefits.
Take advantage of the cucumber
Its skin and sliced flesh remove puffiness under the eyes and improve blood circulation. Therefore, the skin automatically acquires a healthy appearance.
Do not use expired products
You may think it is a shame to throw them away if there is enough in the package but think that it can damage your skin. Especially make-up cosmetics, if expired, can transfer to your skin bacteria that had accumulated from previous uses. The same goes for creams, lotions, serums, emulsions, and other similar products. Much more so if they are damaged or smell bad.
Is your skin hydrated enough?
You need to know the differences between dry skin and dehydration. Need for hydration or need for lipids? It is important to know the differences between dry and dehydrated skin, as these two “problems” are not solved in the same way.
Dehydration of the skin is temporary. In this case, the skin structure is healthy, it just needs more (or better) hydration. Therefore, the element that is missing from your body is water. In addition, the use of a very good moisturizer is recommended
As for dry skin, here things are a little different, as the problem is deeper: The skin no longer secretes enough lipids and thus cannot be protected, to maintain its hydration naturally. In this case, water alone is not enough, as lipids are needed to repair dry skin. It is therefore recommended to use a very oily moisturizer, the composition of which has been studied specifically for the penetration of lipids into the skin.
How to recognize dehydrated skin?
The most common sign is the feeling of “pulling” on the skin, but occasionally e.g. when you come out of the bathroom, during the winter, due to the increased air pollution, etc.
In addition, very oily moisturizers are not always tolerated by your skin, as they can even create small pimples.
There are two things you need to do to treat dehydrated skin: A very good moisturizer and… consistency in its application. By following these two, your skin will no longer be dehydrated, while it will remain soft and velvety for a long time. In addition, you should take the appropriate sun protection measures, as the sun’s rays are the great enemy of dehydrated skin.
How to recognize dry skin?
In case of dry skin:
– Do you feel your skin “pulling” every day,
– Your skin is rough and dull in appearance, reminiscent of “crocodile skin” and
– You notice obvious signs of premature aging on the skin.
Because there is a lack of lipids, the skin, as a result, suffers.
The good news is that today, there are some very nutritious and effective creams that you can find at your local pharmacy!
These creams are” richer”, considering their thick texture, and much more effective, compared to creams for dehydrated skin.
