Natural Skin Care
Keep it young and healthy.
Skin is the body’s largest organ; therefore, skin care is the first line of defense when trying to keep healthy. Keeping it healthy is as important as keeping it soft and smooth.
Your skin is at risk from an accelerating number of free radicals in the environment. These radicals, scientists believe, damage cells and DNA and are created by environmental stresses such as increasing pollution and UV sunlight due to a depleted ozone.
Balanced nutrition equals healthier skin. Neglecting vital nutrients – vitamins, minerals, and phytonutirents, may make the skin age considerably faster.
Deficiencies of vitamins B-complex and essential fatty acids can prevent the body from doing its best in repairing and/or renewing one’s skin. Being consistent in taking a natural, non-toxic vitamin can lead to younger looking skin. There is no magic to maintaining younger healthier skin, only a balance of whole food nutrients.
Natural skin care starts from the inside.
On the positive side, there are many things we can do for our skin. We first want to drink a lot of pure water. Chlorine is not good for the inside or outside of our body. The International Sports Medicine Institute found a formula for daily water intake: ½ oz. per pound of body weight if you’re not active (that’s ten 8 oz. glasses if you weigh 160 pounds), and 2/3 oz per pound if you’re athletic (13 to 14 glasses a day at the same weight) Water washes the cells and helps maintain beautiful, younger looking skin.
Dr. Batmanghelidj, a London-educated physician, collected more than 3,000 case histories of people who he feels were remarkably helped by drinking increased amounts of water.
Dr. Batmanghelidj was a political prisoner in Iran in 1979 and his job was to provide medical care for the thousands of prisoners who were awaiting trial. He discovered these prisoners had a variety of ailments he felt were related to dehydration. He is the author of a book titled Your Body’s Many Cries for Water.
Other than good, pure water, your body requires some specific nutrients. Skin care can be as simple as adding these into your diet. The skins needs include:
It comes down to taking responsibility for your skin. No one else can do it as well as you, the owner.
However, skin care and having good healthy skin are more than just putting the right stuff in your body, it is avoiding putting the wrong stuff on your body. There are many chemicals found in everyday products (some specifically skin care products) that can age your skin. These include but are not limited to:
There is increasing evidence to show that your make-up may be responsible for a number of conditions, from skin allergies to cancer. Studies completed two years ago found every man and woman in the study contained traces of dibutyl phthalate. The levels were particularly high in women between the ages of 20 and 45. The fact is these women use more cosmetic products than their male counterparts.
Whether you are putting something on your skin or in your body, it is best to check out the research the company has done to insure your safety, the individual using the product.
