Caring for the Skin the Natural Way

Most women want to have the perfect skin. Perfect skin means smooth, not showing wrinkles or fine lines, no sunspots and blemishes, no breakouts and no acne scars type of skin. This is quite a feat to achieve for some while some are lucky enough to get good genes. It is worth noting though that with all the pollutants and dirt the skin gets exposed to having good genes may not be enough to maintain the health and beauty of the skin.

The skin needs to be well taken care of just like any organ in our body. The skin is the largest and actually most exposed organ that we have. Everyday it receives some serious battering from different elements such as pollution, dust, dirt, toxins and UV rays. Add to this the stress in daily living. This battering will result to wrinkles, breakouts and unhealthy complexion. Before you try out any surgery or cosmetic procedure to revive the beauty of your skin, you should try caring for your skin the natural way.

Here’s how you can bring back the beauty of your skin or if you have had problems with your skin since birth (which is not too likely) then here’s how you can make it beautiful and healthy the natural way.

  1. Work out regularly. Working out is actually a good way to relieve your body and mind from stress. Stress has been known to be one of the major causes of unhealthy skin. People that are stressed out are prone to skin breakouts. When you exercise your body releases endorphins (happy hormones) which take out stress from your mind and body and replaces it with pleasurable feelings. Also when you work out your body is generating more oxygen thus oxygen can flow freely to every part of your body. When you exercise you sweat and when you sweat you are ridding your body and your skin of toxins. Sweat also kills the bacteria causing acne.
  2. Use topical ointments. Argan oil is a natural moisturiser from Mother Nature’s health chest. This oil contains Vitamin E, essential unsaturated fatty acids, Sterols, Ferulic acid, Polyphenols, Prostaglandins, Carotenoids and Linoleic acid. These components give the Argan oil moisturising capabilities as well as anti aging properties. The antioxidants component of the oil protects the skin from harmful effects of UV rays and free radicals. Of course before you moisturise, wash your face first. Wash twice daily. Once before going to bed and once after you wake up in the morning.
  3. Stick with a healthy diet. Stop feeding your body junk. You will get nothing good from doing so. Your skin would show the bad effects of unhealthy food. You will be more prone to breakouts and your skin will have a pale complexion. You should have a balanced diet all the time. Include carbohydrates, protein, fibres and healthy fats in your meals.
  4. Sleep early to get enough rest. Skin cells regenerate and repair when you sleep at night. Make it a habit to go to bed early to be able to get enough zzzzzs.

These natural ways to care for your skin are mostly how you should care for your health. They are easy to do if you really want to do them.
