Treat Your Skin With Due Respect
By Tom Herrin
Many of us are guilty of neglecting our health in one way or another. While we may be into exercise or nutrition, we may let something else go. One of the things that gets left out often is our skincare. For certain, it is important, but do we realize its real role? For one big thing, it is critical to the job of protecting us from infection. In order for it to accomplish this job, it needs to remain healthy. Whether it is from excessive environmental factors or some general mistreatment that we tend to deal out, our skin may be neglected and fail to be able to do its job. Fortunately for us, there are lots of things we can do to keep it in better shape.
Give Your Face a Massage
For many, the thought of facial massage may seem a bit odd. It is just a little out of the ordinary. The fact is the face sends a lot of messages. Tension can show and reflect the stress that is endured day after day. A facial massage can help to relax the muscles and boost the circulation. This can give better color and a generally healthy feeling. Doing this for a few minutes each day may be well worthwhile.
Know Your Foods
Eating the right foods may make a big difference. Most of us were told, when we were younger that we should avoid chocolates and a few other foods because they were bad for the complexion. It is true that processed sugars, some dairy products, and possibly a few others may cause the skin to be broken out. It may be another case of staying in touch with the bodies needs and reactions to make the best choices.
Add Moisture to the Skin
A lot of different conditions can take a toll on the skin. The sun and wind are tough. For me, the colder temperatures dry my skin pretty bad, especially my hands. I finally found that I can help them stay feeling much better when I use a good lotion several times per day. Moisturizing is a good practice to form each day. Using some kind of moisturizer on a regular basis can help to keep your hands soft and smooth. It is a good habit to form and can go a long way toward protecting the health of the skin
