Did you know that the skin is considered the largest human organ? Adults carry around 3.5 kg and 2 square meters of it. So naturally, everyone wants to have beautiful and healthy skin. There are many ways in which the quality of the skin can be improved and here we are presenting 5 tips which you can easily employ:
1. Drink Green Tea – we start with an easy one. Go to the local store and buy a box of green tea. The EGCG or epigallocatechin gallate, which can be found in large amounts in green tea, is preventing the collagen destruction that leads to wrinkles, as well as sun-induced DNA damage in the skin. So change your morning coffee routine with green tea routine.
2. Keep you skin moisturized – the two layers of the skin, dermis and epidermis, are made up of 70% and 15% of water, respectably. In you want to keep the skin well moisturized, it’s very important to choose daily moisturizing skin care products that balance the level of water within the skin. Additional option would be to use a moisturizing mask regularly, removing the excess with a spring water spray.
3. Reduce the stress – as you probably know stress can take a toll on almost every part of your body, thus including your skin. One research showed that during exam time, students who felt stressed had more severe acne breakouts than those under less pressure. The reason? When the body is under stress, it increases the production of body hormones like cortisol, which can decrease the body ability to fight off acme-inducing bacteria’s. To keep stress under control, you should practice some of the various stress-management techniques like meditation, yoga or deep breathing.
4. Protect yourself from the sun – no matter the season, always choose daily skincare products that include solar filters. Why? Well one of the harmful effects of exposure to the sun is accelerated skin ageing, and solar filters can reduce this to a minimum.
5. Use mild non-detergent cleansers – your best options are milks, gels, foams, or cloths. When you are buying cleansers, scan the ingredient labels of products to see if they contain gentle, plant-derived surfactants. The natural source is often hinted in the name of the cleanser (example: the prefix coco – equals coconut).
