Healthy Skin Tips for 2013
Take Care of Your Skin As the largest organ of our body, skin has a big job to do. It is responsible for protecting us from the sun’s UV radiation, from free radical synthesis due to exposure to car exhaust and other air pollutants. It also works to rid our bodies of toxins through oil and sweat excretion. It makes good sense, then, to take very good care of our skin.
Watch what foods you eat. We now consume more chemicals in our food than any other generation because of the increasing habit of eating fast and pre-packaged convenience foods. While this step has made our lives easier, it has not necessarily made our lives better.
Our skin is sum and substance of what we eat and drink, and what we expose it to. Here are a few tips to make 2013 the best year your skin has ever had.
What to Drink and What to Avoid Obviously, dehydration is a bad condition. Any drink that dehydrates you should be kept to a minimum; this means anything with caffeine or alcohol. Sugar-laden drinks interfere with your hormones, sometimes causing unwanted skin conditions. Sugar-substitutes are chemicals, and while scientists know a lot about them, many naturopaths suggest that you choose natural alternatives like honey or fruit nectar. Water is your best drink.
What to Eat and What to Avoid Dark chocolate, egg whites and honey are very skin-friendly! Fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables are your skin's very best friends. Eating as many fresh fruits and vegetables as you can in as many colors as possible will reward you by making your skin younger-looking, more supple, and will help to bring back a natural glow.
Foods filled with chemicals do more harm than good. Try to eat more naturally, include raw foods (uncooked fruits and vegetables) this year and leave the fast food products alone.
Knowledge about individual skin properties is helpful for choosing adequate skin care products and treatment regimens. Common definitions of skin types and skin properties are listed below. The following aspects should be considered in this context:
Individual skin type may change due to external (e.g. climate, skin care) and internal (e.g. medications, hormonal changes) factors over time - it is not static
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness and swelling of the face that can also affect the scalp, neck, ears, chest, and back. Eye symptoms (ocular rosacea) are also reported by half of people with rosacea.
Those afflicted with rosacea may first notice a tendency to flush or blush easily. The condition progresses to persistent redness, pimples, and visible, threadlike blood vessels (telangiectasias) in the center of the face. These skin changes can eventually spread to the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose.
What if you could smooth out wrinkles and replenish your natural beauty instantly? Lip augmentation will restore your lips to their youthful appearance or give you the full lips you've always wanted.
If you have been wondering how to get rid of your wrinkles but aren't ready for surgery, Restylane or Perlane may be the answer. Now a natural product can help you meet your goals without fear of an allergic reaction.
