How to take care of your skin in tough times
People feel the need to take care of their skin when they are concerned about something. The first signs of aging may be visible as expression lines or more flaccid areas or dryness.
We are often unsure of which product is best for us, what skincare routine to follow which one is safest, and which one will be the most efficient.
Sometimes, the problem is not that we use the right products or that we don’t have a good skincare and cleaning routine. Or that we start too late. Most of us think of attacking the “problem” once it is present, but not before to delay or prevent future problems.
Be especially attentive to sensitive areas.
You should use specific products for each part of your body. The Ph and the products available on the market may not be the best for each area of the body. Choose the one that suits you the most. Particularly fragile and thin skin is found around the eyes and lips. These areas require special attention.
Hydrate your skin every day
About 70% of the skin’s content is water. It is vital for the skin to function properly and to keep a high level of hydration. This hydration provides the skin with flexibility, elasticity, and enhances the exchange functions between enzymes, fluids, and the acceptance and use of external active ingredients.
The skin undergoes a 28-day regeneration process. As time goes by, this regeneration slows down and less time passes before a new cell is formed. They then become dead skin cells and build-up, thereby preventing the skin from performing its normal functions.
Protect yourself from the sun
Our skin must receive vitamin D from the sun. However, even though we’re not on vacation at the beach, our skin is exposed to the sun’s rays every time we go outside when it’s sunny.
In winter and summer, the sun’s ultraviolet rays can cause severe skin damage, including premature aging, dryness, and spots. It can be used on the entire body, including the hands and face.
Limit external aggression
The skin’s health is directly affected by many external factors, including pollution, tobacco, alcohol, and stress. We must protect our skin from these harmful elements. Alcohol, tobacco, and stress not only harm the skin’s functions but also lead to dryness, dullening of the skin, premature aging, and accelerated the appearance of wrinkles.
Recover to allow your cells to regenerate.
The body’s repair functions “wake up” during the night. It is also the time when the body’s regeneration and purification functions activate and it makes a setup. The skin’s cellular metabolism activates and active ingredients are assimilated. Damage from the day is repaired and new cells are formed.
It is important to rest well and get enough sleep to allow your body to self-regulate.
A minimum amount of exercise is necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Your muscles must be strong and healthy. If you think about the skin, the toned muscles will make it look more toned and less sagging. Additionally, sweating helps to remove toxins, moisturize and oxygenate the skin deeply. Find exercises you are comfortable with or sign up for dance classes that allow you to move and do what you want.
