There are three simple but very effective ways to make your skin glow and look healthier than it does right now. These include:
- Maximizing your daily hydration.
- Keeping your skin out of the direct sunlight as much as possible.
- Eating a proper diet that enhances your body and skin’s health.
Water and personal hydration are absolutely critical for healthy-looking skin. When you body is made up at least two-thirds water, being even mildly dehydrated is going to show right away. Your body’s cells utilize water and minerals extensively to transmit nutrients and remove waste. When you don’t have sufficient water that same system begins to be stressed and starts to protect what is important.
And your outer appearance is not one of those priorities. Because daily hydration with water intake is one of the easiest things to control, there is no reason why anyone should not be able to ensure a proper daily intake of water. Unfortunately, we mistake other drinks as the same, and they actually cause the body to lose water. Coffee, sodas, tea and other liquids that are diuretics work against the body’s needs. Keep it simple, stay hydrated with plain water.
Have you ever noticed how the sun can cause even the best colored items to bleach and lose their shine in a short amount of time when exposed? Now imagine what the sun does to your skin every day you go outside exposed. It’s no surprise that people who work outside a lot tend to have leathery looking skin, not the best formula for a healthy glow. By minimizes sun exposure, your skin will retain it’s youthful look longer and with a brighter color.
You are literally what you eat, and when your diet is predominantly processed food with complex fats and chemicals, your body cannot process that material well. In essence, the processed material ends up poisoning your body in a number of ways.
At first, the effect is only on your digestive system, but eventually secondary effects begin to show in other organs including your skin. If you want your skin to be healthy and shine, you need to give it the natural nutrients the body can easily absorb and use for building blocks.
Chemical substitutes trick the body and eventually starve it of good nutrients. The body then adjusts by stealing from itself, which often shows in an unhealthy appearance. Try it for a week. Just eat fast food and junk food for every meal for seven days. Then, at the end see how you feel and look. In most cases, your body is going to feel sick, and your skin is going to look a bit pale and greasy from your body trying to expel the waste however it can.
The body’s skin represents its largest organ, and that system is directly integrated with the rest of the body’s internal systems. For your skin to look good, your body has to be hydrated, protected from the elements and supported with healthy food regularly.
