Maintaining Skin Health
Inside Out Skin Care

Take a good close-up look at your skin. . .

What you are seeing is only a minor part of the whole story.

Maintaining your skin health from the inside out is an essential factor in anti-aging skin care. (Not to mention the wonders a healthy lifestyle does for your overall physical health as well!)
Maintaining Skin Health 1You've heard all of this before in one way or another but let's sum up the major factors that contribute to maintaining skin health by category:
  • Diet
  • Fluid intake
  • Exercise Sleeping
  • Habits Stress
  • Emotional factors
  • Environmental factors
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol Consumption
The old adage that you are what you eat couldn't be truer when you see the actual evidence displayed in the mirror when you look at your skin.

Maintaining skin health starts with a balanced diet rich in vitamins and nutrients.

A healthy diet provides the skin cells with the energy to fight off the skin damaging free radicals thereby improving the overall health of your skin.

Free radicals thrive in unhealthy skin conditions. As oxidants, free radicals cripple healthy skin cells, leaving the skin with few defenses.

The more you deprive your skin of the essential nutrients it needs, like antioxidants which protect the skin from oxidants, the more damage the free radicals cause.

The healthier you are, the healthier your skin will be and healthier skin is much less susceptible to the damage that results in wrinkles, age spots and overall deterioration.

Eating the colors of the rainbow in balanced amounts of fresh fish, foods rich in proteins, fruits and vegetable and less of the snack and sugary foods is a skin healthy approach to a healthful diet.

An adequate daily intake of fluids, particularly water, is also an essential component in maintaining skin health. Dehydrated skin loses its flexibility and literally begins to shrivel in on itself.

Regular exercise stimulates circulation which is a necessary component in achieving healthy skin cells while a good eight hours of sleep a night gives the body and skin cells the rest it needs to renew and rejuvenate itself.

Adequate exercise and sleep habits are also natural stress reducers. Episodes of high and chronic stress can have a direct impact on maintaining skin health.

The incidences of outbreaks of acne, cold sores, eczema and even rosacea can be linked to stress factors.

Environmental factors such as pollution and the sun as well as smoking and excessive consumption of alcohol all contribute to skin damage.

Protecting the skin inside out with healthful habits combined with comprehensive skin care routine will yield healthier and younger appearing skin.

It isn't surprising that clinical studies have concluded people who have a healthful lifestyle and good dietary habits demonstrate fewer wrinkles and less frequent skin damage.

Give yourself a huge advantage by turning your skin care inside out!
