Creating beautiful SKIN

 

It is a known fact that when your skin looks great, your confidence soars.  All women are unique and so is their skin. Who doesn’t want to look beautiful? Everybody wants to look pretty and fresh. Undeniably, perfect and beautiful skin is what we all desire and taking care of our skin is one way to achieve that goal. 

As the largest organ in our bodies, the skin needs special treatment and TLC, creating beautiful skin for a lifetime.  Keeping the skin moist, elastic and smooth is one of the best ways of skincare treatment. 

There needs to be a different approach to dealing with one’s skin type.  A closer look reveals the hidden beauty of your skin. 

The first thing you must know about skincare treatment is to do it regularly.  You can start it the very easy way, such as washing your hands and face with a natural soap or cleanser.

Know your skin type. Is it dry, normal or oily skin?  Use appropriate skincare products for the treatment. 

Eat lots of healthy foods, namely fresh fruits and vegetables which act as great antioxidants, substances that prevent damage in the body caused by free radicles. Strawberries, cranberries, blueberries, tuna, seafood, onions, garlic and broccoli are great sources of food high in antioxidants.

Avoid smoking and alcohol.  They are real skin enemies, since they make your skin dry and create wrinkles.

Carry out proper treatments for your skin. Clean your skin with water and chemical-free cleansing products every day, scrub your skin regularly to remove dead cells and smooth the skin and moisturise it with skin lotion and cream containing high amounts of vitamin E.

While you sleep your skin is actually hard at work regenerating itself, balancing oil production and expelling impurities.  Regular application of night creams interferes with these essentials tasks, and over time skin becomes less able to care for itself. Covering the skin with moisturiser 24 hours a day sends a signal to the sebaceous glands to cut down on moisture production, resulting in even drier skin that becomes dependent on moisturising products just to appear ‘normal’.

The skin when it’s sufficiently protected produces more of its own oil when skin is dry, and less when it’s balanced.  Soap-based products and oil-free acne treatments can rob the skin of its defences, leaving it vulnerable and triggering the sebaceous glands to produce even more oil.  The most effective solution is to apply oil to an oily complexion.

Its common knowledge that dirt and impurities can cause breakouts and clog pores. Keeping the skin clean is one step in any healthy skincare regime.  Over cleansing damages the skin by scrubbing, or using harsh drying or exfoliating products.  Soap, scrubs and exfoliants can strip your face of this natural protection, resulting in dry, irritated skin and premature signs of ageing.

Our skin has an absolutely amazing ability to balance and heal itself, responding constantly to changes in our internal and external environments.

It needs a little help along the way, like protection from overexposure to harsh elements, or support when it gets thrown out of balance by illness or stress. 

 The key is to encourage and strengthen your skin’s own natural self-healing processes rather than suppressing symptoms or interfering with the skins natural rhythms. 

Don’t let your skin show it if you have lines and wrinkles, rough, dry skin, uneven skin tone, or dullness.  

Welcome a nourished, hydrated, youthful-looking, smooth and supple skin that is even toned and translucency.  Always reveal skin that looks and feels like new. Until next week.   Stay Fabulous. You can contact Lucretia at lucretiam06@gmail.com
