How to have healthy and beautiful skin.

Health from inside

Health and beauty

Step 1 – Cleanse: Using the right cleanser twice a day will help remove dirt and impurities that have accumulated throughout the day, while simultaneously moisturizing and protecting your delicate complexion. This leaves your skin feeling soft, soothed, and refreshed.

TIP: Be sure to remove your makeup and cleanse before you go to sleep each night.  Not cleansing properly can cause you to look older than your years.

Step 2 – Tone: you should be using one that will tone your skin while preserving its natural moisture. Using a gentle, effective toner is a must to preserve the delicate moisture barrier in your skin and prevent long-term dehydration.

TIP: Be sure to choose a toner that delivers the nutrients your complexion needs to protect it from outside damage and preserve its youthful look.

Step 3 – Moisturize: Dry skin is less prepared to withstand free radical damage from the sun and environment.  Moisturizing after cleansing will keep all skin types in balance and reduce the risk of premature aging.

TIP: After cleansing and toning, be sure to moisturize – even if you have oily skin. Oily skin can still become dehydrated and produce even more oil as a result, leaving you worse off than you started! Choose a moisturizer that penetrates deeply into the skin to slow down the aging process, promote healthy cell growth, and improve the quality of skin tissue – ensuring that your complexion remains youthful and wrinkle-free.

How stress affects your skin

The stress response also helps you rise to meet challenges.

There are many factors affecting the condition of your skin. Such as lack of moisture. Dry skin isn’t just uncomfortable – it’s also a sign that your skin isn’t holding on to enough water to allow its repair enzymes to work properly. That means that your skin is less able to naturally heal the inflammation caused by external attackers like the sun, excess sugar intake, and pollution.

The solution: Moisturize! Not all creams and lotions are created equal, though: Ideally, a moisturizer should not only temporarily hydrate, but also strengthen skin so that it can retain moisture more effectively.
