10 Secrets to Sensational Skin
Every aspect of a persons life is reflected in the skin. Great skin is a reflection of health, well being and vitality. For more relaxed skin that radiates youthfulness, put these skin secrets to the test.
Water is the number one factor in obtaining sensational skin. The ounces needed to maintain a healthy hydration varies. One way to determine the amount of water needed is to take your body weight in lbs and divide the lbs in half. For example, someone who is 140 lbs would need to consume 70 ounces of water per day. Next, factor in the consumption of caffeinated drinks, alcoholic beverages, low humidity climates, vigorous exercises and extended outdoor activities. Once these other components are factored in, add 2 additional ounces of water per external factor.
Stay positive. A persons attitude will always make a big difference in their results. If skin care is approached with anger and frustration, stress levels will increase. Which will trigger the stress hormone, cortisol. Cortisol causes inflammation which leads to several aging factors. For example, sagging skin, wrinkles and dullness.
Essential fatty acids provide the building blocks for healthy skin. For gaining maximum benefits, it is recommended that 2 tablespoons of fish oil or flax seed oil be consumed on a daily basis.
Vitamins such as A, C, E and liquid B complex are all beneficial to the skin.
Antioxidants such as bioflavonoids ( vitamin P and grape seed), green tea, alpha lipoic acid and selenium (Brazil nuts) are known to combat free radicals. Free radicals are an atom or group of atoms that have one or more unpaired electrons. In skin terms free radicals are collagen and elastins enemy.
For a more balanced diet that is beneficial to the skin try consuming 60 g of protein (20 g, 3 times per day) every day. Meat, fish, poultry and eggs are all examples of protein.
Seeds and nuts such as almonds, sunflower seeds and walnuts are beneficial as well.
Lymphatic detoxification assists in the regeneration and increase of the production of collagen and elastin fibers. The lymphatic system carries toxins away from the vital organs and cells as well as carries nutrients to them. It is the bodies transport super filtration highway. Foods that aid in cleansing the lymph system are dark green vegetables, lemons, flax seed, wheatgrass juice and oranges. Also, dry brush the skin, before your morning shower, with a natural bristle brush. Begin at the soles of the feet and brush upward. Dry brushing stimulates circulation and enhances the natural detoxification of the lymphatic system. For the reduction of lymph congestion, bounce on a trampoline for 5 minutes per day.
A good facial skin care regimen is a must for combating aging. Always cleanse, tone, utilize serums, moisturize and apply sunscreen. For additional weekly or monthly treatments, consider microdermabrasion (mechanical exfoliation), exfoliation, facials, chemical peels and face masks.
Develop a exercise regimen that consist of aerobics, strength training and flexibility training.
Facial exercises such as the crows feet exercise are helpful. Simply place the index fingers at the outside of the eyes. Rest the top third of the finger between the end of the eyebrow and the edge of the eye. Press gently. Then close the eyes. Hold for four to six seconds. Do five repetitions.
