5 Tips for Natural Skin Care

Regular skin care can effectively keep you in healthy skin and good looking. When you are taking care of your skin, it is better if you can do it in a natural way. Here are top five tips for natural skin care.

1. Get yourself a dry brush exfoliation in the morning.

You can do a dry brush exfoliation in the morning before you take a shower. Dry exfoliation can eliminate dead skin cells and allows the skin to detox. In addition, such exfoliation improves lymph and blood circulation and can decrease puffiness. Also, when you do the exfoliation, the generated gentle pressure can calm and pacify the nervous system. A soft, natural bristle brush will be needed when you want to give yourself a dry brush exfoliation.

2. Improve your digestion system.

A good digestion system can finally reflect on a good skin, so to take good care of your skin, you should understand the importance of keeping yourself in balanced diet. Some people who suffer from skin disorders like acne, psoriasis or rosacea usually suffer from constipation, imbalanced ratio between “good” and “bad” bacteria, leaky gut and other digestive problems. There are two major causes for most common digestion culprits, namely “not enough water” and “not enough fiber”. Water can bathe cells and eliminate waste products, which is very helpful for preventing constipation. Fiber is very important in helping digestion, yet most people are lack of fiber in their diets. According to the report from National Academy of Sciences Food and Nutrition Board in 2002, the average person intakes 12 gram of fiber per day. The recommended amount for men between 19 to 50 years, 38 g fiber is needed while that value for women in the same age range is 25 g. To better help you enhance the functionality of your digestion system, herein we suggest you add whole grains into your daily meal and combine it with white rice; have an apple each day—an apple a day, keeps a doctor away; have some cauliflower, high-fiber snacks, beans and legumes and ground flaxseeds to help you maintain at normal level of fiber intake.

3. Invigorate your sluggish circulation.

Sometimes we work hard and busy all the day, so you just get up when you need to go to restroom. That is not good for your skin! Keep moving around is great for your skin, stress level and overall health. If you keep inactive for too long, your skin may be affected and chances of bloating, puffiness, acne, cellulite and loss of muscle tone can increase. If you are really busy, then please at least take a quick break to go outside and walk around the block several times a day. During weekends, you can book a massage therapy appointment. Or you can choose to exercise in gym or start each morning by stretching.

4. Avoid too much sugar!

Maybe you never heard about this, but the fact is, over intake of sugar is considered to be one of the main causes of premature aging. The more sugar we eat, the more there will be in our bloodstream. Day after day, these sugar will lead to a process known as glycation, which occurs when a glucose molecule damages a protein molecule by sticking to it. The newly formed molecules are called advanced glycation end-products, or AGEs. The AGEs damages collagen in skin, cartilage and ligaments and decrease elasticity and that’s why wrinkles start to form and you skin begins to sag. It may seem difficult to reduce the amount of sugar intake, but you can start with decreasing the sugar you add in your milk and coffee in mornings this week, and figure out another way to reduce sugar. Week after week, you will be surprised that you have already get rid of plenty of sugar!

 5. Some fats can be good to you.

For people who are trying to lose weight, fats are always evil. But this is not always the truth. Essential fatty acids are simply fats that our body can’t live without. Some processes including making cell membranes, hormones, and other body chemicals can’t be done without them. They are considered to keep your heart healthy, fight inflammation and possibly prevent cancer. Moreover, the essential fats are extremely important to those who has inflammatory conditions such as eczema and acne, as well as dry skin. People lack of essential fats can observe some bumps on the back of the arms. To get more essential fats, you are suggested to have some flaxseed, walnut oil and cold water fish. Maybe, you can also consider to purchase some fish oil supplements.
