How to suppose skincare from the inside out?
When it comes to skin care, many people believe that the more cosmetics you purchase, the more beautiful your skin will be. But that isn’t always the case; I’ve seen several situations when no matter what cosmetics they use, the skin does not really improve, and in fact worsens. Why so?
In fact, beautiful skin must first be healthy skin, and in order to have healthy skin, you must first go inside to care for it. Like Sylvia Boorstein’s book “Happiness is an Inside Work” – skin is an inner work while you’re in perfect health. Start taking better care of yourself from the inside out, and you may realize that you will need less and less exterior treatments. Some simple way to take care your inside:
STAY HYDRATED MY FRIENDS.
Surely, you’ve probably heard this advice before. Even so, it is still the most often followed skin care tip. The skin is mostly made up of water cells. When your body is dehydrated, it will be seen on the skin; dehydrated skin will lose its elasticity and become dry and flaky. The skin is readily damaged and wrinkled due to a lack of elasticity.
People are generally advised to drink 8 glasses of water every day. But according to recent data from the National Academies of Science, Technology, and Medicine, males need 3.7 liters of water per day and women require 2.7 liters per day. Wow! It may seem like a lot, but it also includes the stuff you eat in an extra day, so be brave and drink more water! Or, if you’re tired of water, you can switch to one or two bottles of kombucha to change the taste and get a lot of other health benefits.
HIT THE GYM
Have you ever noticed that the more you sweat during exercise, the more your body craves water and nutritious snacks? It’s hard to imagine that you want to consume a glass of iced chocolate with whipping cream before your exercise when your body need something lighter like an apple or a bottles of Gingerbeet kombucha, maybe post-workout smoothie as well.
Exercise aids the body’s ability to enhance blood circulation to the skin. More nutrients and oxygen are delivered to skin cells when blood flow improves. As you sweat during activity, like when you go to the sauna, the pores open and the skin excretes the sweat, dirt, and oil that comes with it. But, be sure to clean your skin after your exercise so that dirt does not remain on your skin.
Stress, on the other hand, is harmful to all parts of the body, particularly the skin. The most typical issue is that when you are too stressed, your skin will often become greasy and acne-prone, since when the body senses stress, it produces cortisol and a variety of other hormones that directly affect the skin. So, how could you minimize stress in a fast-paced world?
- Get enough sleep: Getting enough sleep helps your body to reduce cortisol (a stress hormone), which has the ability to break down collagen fibers.
- Reduce stress by doing yoga, breathing exercises, meditation, walking, or writing. You could try to make it a habit and have your little “me time” every day.
- Begin to focus on gut health: The gut produces 70% of the hormone serotonin (which influences mood). We will spend a separate article on “the connection between gut and mood” to discuss more about this topic, but you should start to provide prebiotics and probiotics to your gut with “fermented foods & drink”, it may help you boost a happy mood.
EATING RIGHT IS MORE ESSENTIAL THAN USING AN EXPENSIVE PRODUCT
Here is a list of foods you should include in your weekly meal to boost your skin’s health from the inside out.
- Omega 3 Fish Oil.
- Avocados are high in vitamin E.
- Sweet potatoes, carrots, and oranges – These foods are high in beta carotene, which acts as a natural sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun (However you should still use it). Use sunscreen on a daily basis).
- Fermented food.
So, taking care of good skin isn’t that difficult, is it? You only need to make an effort to drink enough water, exercise regularly, reduce stress, and understand how to eat wisely. What are you waiting for? Begin your skincare routine today.
