Saving Your Skin

Hi everyone, 


Your skin is your barrier to the outside world. Whilst it looks after you, it’s important to care for it back. Not looking after your skin can cause premature aging of the skin, as well as preventing its effectiveness to heal and protect our body. Here are just few simple ways that

Stay moisturised

Most of us have a shower daily, which is no bad thing for keeping us smelling fresh, although it can have the side effect of getting rid of important oils in our skin which keep us moisturised. Without these oils, our skin dries out quicker, which leads it to age more rapidly in the long run. Applying moisturiser after a shower or bath is the best way to help put these important oils back into our skin.

Attack that acne

Spots are caused by blocked oil pores, and whilst they can be caused by getting skin greasy, other factors such as stress and eating high carb foods can also cause an acne outbreak. There are many herbal remedies that are worth trying such as tea tree and witch hazel. For more serious cases, a doctor may be able to prescribe Aldactone. There’s also the option of blue light therapy, although this is expensive so bear this in mind.

Silence your cellulite

Cellulite consists of fatty deposits under the skin and affects many women. Whilst it’s cause is unknown, there are many ways to treat it. You can buy anti cellulite cream online, which can be rubbed into the affected area. Apple cider vinegar has also worked for some people as a more natural treatment, whilst exercise can also help ward it off.


Shelter from the sun

Whilst we all do need our dose of vitamin D, too much sun exposure prematurely ages us, not to mention increasing our chances of contracting skin cancer. Wearing protection at all times can help us get our vitamin D without suffering the harmful UV rays. And whilst spray tan often gets mocked, it can be a far healthier option for our skin for those wanting that summery glow.

Take care with cosmetics

Make-up junkies ought to also be aware as too many cosmetics can take its toll on our skin too. Particular chemicals to look out for are lead and talc, although these may only cause harm with daily use. You should also be careful of wearing cosmetics that cause an allergic reaction – continuous use even with only mild symptoms could cause permanent damage to your skin. Hypoallergenic make-up may be a better solution for those that regularly get rashes.

Feed your flesh

A great number of foods can be good for our skin. These include fruit, dark chocolate, olive oil and green tea, which have all been shown to hinder aging. Of course, just as there are good foods, there are also foods to avoid on a regular basis such as high carb foods and trans fats.

Pack in smoking

Last but not least, smoking should also be cut out if you hope to preserve your youthful skin long into old age. As well as reducing the flow of oxygen to your skin, smoking reduces the production of collagen, an important protein that strengthens your skin. Quit the cigarettes and you’ll keep your skin’s colour and strength.
