Simple Steps To Keeping Your Skin Healthy And Looking Good

As we age our skin ages with us and gradually we start to look our age. However there are some simple things that you can do to help slow down the effects of aging on your skin to make sure you don’t look as old as you may feel. Here’s 4 free skin care tips to show you how.

Like every organ in your body your skin is much healthier if it’s – healthy. In other words you can keep your skin healthy and keep it looking good and keep the visible ravages of age at bay for as long as possible. Skin is just like any other organ in your body, the steps needed to keep it looking good are the same.

Here’s our 4 free skin care tips:

1. Don’t smoke.

Smoking is just terrible for your skin. Just about everyone knows a woman who smokes who looks 30 years older than she really is. Smoking prematurely ages your skin. It dehydrates it, or dries it out, it causes premature wrinkles and lines, age spots and discolouration.

Smoking is also one of the worst things you can do for your health. Don’t smoke and your skin, and your overall health, will improve dramatically.

2. Stay healthy.

Just like every organ the rules for keeping your skin healthy, with some exceptions, are the same. Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, drink plenty of water, limit your intake of saturated fat, salt and sugar

That’s the recipe for staying healthy and that’s also the recipe for healthy good looking skin. Do this and you will look better and feel better.

And exercise for your health as well as your skin. For all the same reasons plenty of exercise is as good for your skin as for your general health.

3. Don’t get sunburnt.

Sunburn creates the effect known as photoaging. This means premature ageing of your skin as a result of excess exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun. Photoaging is almost as bad for your skin as smoking. It is possible to reverse sun damage to the skin, but the more damage the less likely you are to fully reverse it.

4. Use high quality natural skin care products.

Mainstream skin care products contain chemical and petrochemical ingredients that, believe it or not, can actually damage your skin and your health. Natural skin care products containing only known natural ingredients that are safe to use work exceptionally well and do not pose any risk to your health or your skin. Use them daily.

Follow these 4 simple skin care tips and you’re well on your way to great looking skin and to better health. They may be simple, but they aren’t easy for everyone. But they work.
