Day By Day Beauty's Newest Beauty Guru Shares The Top Five Practices For Maintaining Healthy Skin
(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 12, 2014 ) Naperville, IL -- Day by Day Beauty's newest Beauty Guru, Liz, is pleased to share 5 steps to great skin health. Liz is currently featured on the company website and social media networks. Skin is a living organ, constantly rejuvenating itself. As new skin cells are produced, dead skin cells slough off. The skin has sweat and oil glands working almost nonstop attempting to keep a natural liquid barrier between the environment and the skin to protect itself and control body temperature.
1. Protect it from UVA/UVB rays
Dermatologists Day by Day Beauty Wants to Help You Nourish Your Skin agree that the sun's UVA and UVB rays are the leading cause for premature aging of the skin, skin's color and texture changes, as well as several forms of cancer. Protect the face with sunscreen (at least an SPF 30 is the most common recommendation) and avoid being in the direct sunlight between 10am-2pm when the sun's rays are harshest. Sunscreen should be applied as the final step before makeup and re-applied as your daily activities dictate.
2. Keep it clean
With dead skin cells shedding, sweat and oil production as well as the environment adding dirt and such to the face, washing it as needed is a no-brainer. Keep in mind the skin's type - be it naturally oily or dry, and understand that seasons and hormones will change the way the skin produces sweat and oils. One person won't necessarily need or even want to use the same cleaning products forever.
Exfoliation is a way to aid the face in sloughing off dead skin cells, freeing clogged or nearly clogged pores, and leaving the face fresh. This also leaves the skin more sensitive to damaging influences, so true exfoliation should only happen one to two times a week followed by extra protective care. There are gentle exfoliators suitable for daily use; always read the manufacturers directions.
Apply daily a proven beneficial nourishment such as Day By Day Beauty's Vitamin C Serum. Vitamin C boosts collagen production, the substance in the skin that retains moisture, plumps the skin to prevent and repair fine lines and wrinkles, as well as maintaining skin's healthy elasticity and texture. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals which would otherwise cause chain reaction molecular damage to your skin cells. Vitamin C contributes to fading sun spots and other discolorations. As a serum it is almost instantly absorbed into the dermis where it is needed most.
While it is true that the body attempts to moisturize itself, the environment can still win and dry the skin. Hot showers, indoor climate control and strong cleaning products add to the drying effects. Moisturising with a product that is appropriate for the skin type is a must for maintaining healthy, young looking skin. Just as cleaning products can change with the seasons, hormones and age, so do types of moisturizers.
5. Eat well and hydrate
Remember that what goes into the body can and will effect what is excreted through the sweat and oil glands of the body. Greasy, fatty and heavily processed foods should be kept to a minimum and balanced with as much vitamin and mineral rich fresh foods as one is able. Eating foods high in vitamins C and E have long been known to aid in the skin's allover health and appearance.
Hydration is essential for a healthy body, let alone skin. Chronic borderline dehydration has been linked to health issues such as frequent headaches and kidney stones. Recovery time for any physical injury increases when dehydrated and all illnesses feel harsher when the body is dehydrated. Alcohol, caffeine and many medications are diuretics, a name for substances that increase urine output even if that means leaching fluids from the body to produce said urine. This dehydrates the body further, increase water intake as needed.
The skin is the first organ to suffer when the body is dehydrated as it will sacrifice its moisture to the inner organs. Oil glands of the face can be tricked into overproducing when the face is dehydrated, causing a oily/dry combination. Moisturizers can only do so much from the surface, hydrate the skin from both sides.
