Perfect Skin Overnight? No Problem With These Tips
The importance of keeping your skin clean and healthy is not just an end unto itself.
We live in a world where although appearance is not everything in the long run, first impressions are often powerful predictors of where other place us in the general pecking order of society.
Should it be this way? No, absolutely not, we should all be judged on our merits, our abilities and our contributions.
Is it this way? Yes, unfortunately it is.
Given the reality is so far from the ideal you can either buck the system or at least make a little effort to make that first impression a good one and one of the key factors in this is the appearance of you skin.
We humans are subliminally programmed to make snap evaluations of others which will then determine how we proceed with that person.
This all stems form the flight or fight mechanism whereby we had to make snap decisions about a situation without thinking. Thinking could take too long and result in being eaten!
So when we meet someone for the first time we see that oily skin, we see the general appearance of the person and we are all gathering information without even being aware of it.
The best thing about it is that it is so simple! A bit of effort every day can leave you with beautiful skin. Read on to learn more about taking proper care of your skin to the condition you desire.
The basic rules for skin care are constant and have been for years.
Don’t smoke: Smoking degenerates your skin years before its time because it restricts blood flow and prevents needed oxygen from reaching constantly and efficiently.
It also means that the skin gets less vital nutrients found in your body making it harder for the skin to maintain total overall health.
It destroys the collagen and elastin necessary for that healthy appearance we desire and while are are at it quitting smoking won’t just benefit your skin, but also your life.
If you don’t live in the tropics then you are constantly losing moisture through your skin.
You don’t have to be sweating visibly for this to be happening, it is a natural occurrence and one that needs to be compensated for.
While there are a million products out there purporting to replace this moisture the truth is that the most effective way of dealing with the situation is to actually drink water.
It is far more effective and way less expensive!
The best tip for your skin is to ensure that it’s clean.
That does not mean expensive skin cleansers but on the other hand it does not mean using cheap harsh soap products.
Soap itself came from a time when people worked hard and got really dirty… really, really dirty!
These days extreme acidity or alkalinity in a skin washing product are not necessary and any reasonable quality, PH balance product will clean your skin effectively and gently.
Skin care is usually overlooked as part of our physical health, so hopefully this information can help you take better care of your skin. Make simple skin care a part of your life, and you’ll be surprised how quick and easy it is.
