Skin Care the Natural Way

As the old saying goes,
". . . you are what you eat."

Natural Skin 1
However, in terms of skin care diet is a great place to start, but by no means does good skin care stops there.

When it comes to natural skin care it is not only about what you eat but also how you care for yourself.

Healthy, glowing skin is a visible indication of good physical health and a balanced diet.

Conversely, problem skin is often an outward indication of an inner imbalance or poor nutritional habits.

If you are looking to improve your skin's tone and appearance try the following tips to help you look and feel your best.

First, adopt a can-do attitude. . .

Your attitude shapes your experience. If you move through the world constantly fraught with worry and anxiety your health and appearance will be negatively impacted with time.

Make a concerted effort to avoid frowning, and smile often. Studies show that simply smiling can help turn a sour mood around.

Care for your skin from the inside out. . .

One serving is comprised of a medium apple, a half-cup of spinach or a cup of tomato juice. You can also get your servings in by including lettuce and tomato on sandwiches, substituting or adding carrot sticks to your lunch, or switching to brown instead of white rice. Flaxseed, nuts and beans are all excellent sources of fiber and can be easily incorporated into any diet.

It is also a good idea to avoid nicotine, excessive sugar, alcohol, fried and processed foods as these contribute to problem skin.

Keep a bottle or glass of water on hand at all times and aim to drink at least half your weight in ounces each day. For example, if you weigh 120 lbs, try to take in at least 60 ounces of water each day.

There are a number of foods, such as lettuce and certain fruits, with high water content that you can use to help boost your water intake.

Water baths your cells and helps to eliminate toxins; it also keeps you hydrated from the inside. The result; beautiful, healthy natural skin.

Your skin is a living organ; in fact, it is the largest  organ of the body.

You can help facilitate this process with exfoliation and exercise. With exfoliation, dry, rough and dead skin cells are eliminated from the top layer of your skin revealing the glowing natural skin underneath.

Exfoliation becomes more important with aging as the process of generating new skin cells slows, thus causing a dull complexion. There are a number of commercially available products that exfoliate.

Natural Skin 2These include various scrubs with microbeads, sugar, salt and crushed walnut shells. You might also try using cloths specially designed for this purpose, or making your own preparation.

Be careful to test any products for sensitivity before applying to the skin.

Also, be sure to avoid using these products in sensitive areas such as around the eyes.

Aim to get at least thirty minutes of exercise at least three times each week.

Whatever activity you choose should take you within 50-70% of your target heart rate for best results.

Moisturize and protect against the elements. Just as it is important to care for skin from the inside out it is also important to employ some natural skin care tips from the outside in.
