Your skin betrays a lot about your lifestyle. If you smoke, spend too much time in the sun, or didn’t get enough sleep last night, your skin is probably suffering the effects. In fact, when someone is sick, one of the first things people notice is dullness or discoloration of the skin. It just shows on their face.
This is why it is so important to take care of yourself and your skin. Your skin reflects your health – and vice versa. Here are some tips to keep your skin healthy and glowing – and they’re good or your overall health as well.
You would think this is a given, but some people don’t realize how much smoking can affect the skin. Cigarettes contain toxins which cam be absorbed directly into the skin. Smoking decrease the skin’s ability to regenerate itself by constricting the blood vessels and reducing the blood supply to the skin. Smoking causes wrinkles, gauntness and discoloration of the skin. It’s just not pretty.
Water is the biggest component of the human body, and is critical for the healthy functioning of all bodily systems. It’s not necessary to drink gallons of water each day, but it is critical to stay hydrated. A lack of moisture in the skin can lead to premature aging, and while you can moisturize your skin from the outside, it is still important to hydrate from the inside. In other words, drink your water.
Stay out of the sun.
No, you don’t have to stay in the shade 100% of the time – that wouldn’t be much fun. But, when you are going to be exposed to the sun (and, remember, just because it is overcast, that doesn’t mean you aren’t being exposed to the sun’s rays), wear your sunscreen. Sun damage is one of the leading causes of premature aging.
Eat a healthy, balanced diet.
The healthier you are on the inside, the healthier you will look on the outside. Fresh fruits and vegetables contain nutrients and antioxidants that help restore skin cells. Certain types of fish, such as salmon, contain Omega-3 fatty acids that support skin health.
