8 Skin Care Tips Part 1 of 2

There is more to skin than meets the eye. Being the largest organ in our bodies, it only deserves proper nourishment and care. Here are eight skin care tips to have that healthy beautiful skin that you have always wanted!

1. LIMIT YOUR EXPOSURE TO THE SUN. Ninety percent of problems associated with skin aging are the result of too much sun exposure. UV rays emitted by the sun (and specifically UVA rays) break down the collagen and elastin in our skin. Use sun screen whenever you have to go out in the sun.

2. CHECK LABELS ON YOUR BEAUTY PRODUCTS. Get rid of old beauty products. Cosmetics that have been sitting on your vanity table or medicine cabinet for over a year should be thrown away because those pots and tubes develop microorganism communities over time.

3. QUIT SMOKING. Smoking restricts blood vessels, it prevents oxygen and nutrients from getting to the skin. This makes skin to appear pale and unhealthy. An Italian study also linked smoking to a skin disease called psoriasis.

4. LOWER YOUR STRESS AND SLEEP MORE. We all suffer from occasional bouts of stress, and skin can be one of the first organs to show external signs of internal stress: dryness, sensitivity, spots and excess oil are all symptoms. Getting enough sleep is also important. The term “beauty rest” actually pertains to the time our bodies repair and rejuvenate.
