Clothes and jewelry can provide you with a luxurious look but, without caring for your facial skin, you won’t be able to radiate the nourished perfect look you always wanted. We aim to rejuvenate the facial skin to make it look tight, glowing, healthy and fresh. Skin that has a smooth texture, as opposed to saggy skin with wrinkles, indicates neglect or aging. There is no need to take drastic measures to recreate the young look of your face. In order to care for and rehabilitate your facial skin all you need is to keep a healthy life style that includes proper nutrition rich with vitamins and minerals. Also, it is important to dedicate a few minutes in each morning and evening.
We offer you eight tips to rehabilitate and maintain young and fresh facial skin.
Step 1 – It is important to drink water in the amount of at least 8 cups a day. In order to care for your facial skin, it is recommended that you drink plenty of water, which prevents the dehydration and wrinkling of the skin. It is important to do this during the summer as well as in the winter when it is colder.
Step 2 – Massage your face once a day (using your fingertips) with moisturizer rich with minerals and natural oils. The amount of pressure needs to be suited to the facial area that you are massaging. It is preferable to focus on the areas under the eyes and the areas where there is dryness. It is also preferable to massage the face during the afternoon hours when the body’s adrenaline levels are low.
Step 3 – It is recommended to apply sun block before leaving the house. Today, there are cosmetic products such as face cream that have high SPF, and offer the facial skin the level of protection that is needed. Vitamin D is one of the vitamins that is necessary for our health and the proper functioning of our bodily systems. Vitamin D, which is essential to our body, is produced with sun exposure. It is sufficient to be exposed to the sun for 10-20 minutes to obtain the ideal dosage of Vitamin D.
Step 4 – Low blood-pressure should be maintained. High blood-pressure is usually caused by a combination of obesity, bad nutrition and an unhealthy life style. This can cause early aging of the skin.
Step 5 – Excessive stress also influences our health as well as our skin. Think of how you can find time during the day to clean your head, calm down, and avoid unnecessary stress.
Step 6 – During the night, when the muscles are relaxed and the body gathers energy, our skin sets into motion and starts with rehabilitation activities. The recommendation is to sleep at least 8 hours a night, and maintain steady sleep patterns. We can help the body in the rehabilitation activities by using designated night creams.
Step 7 – It is recommended to wash your face with lukewarm to warm water in the morning and in the evening, followed by washing it with cold water to shrink the skin’s pores. Washing your face helps clean the dirt and oils that have accumulated on it during the day, and prevents infections, pimples and acne in the skin. After the washing, you should wipe your face with a clean towel in order to prevent the entrance of bacteria into the facial skin.
Step 8 – Nutrition is a very important component of taking care of the facial skin. It is recommended to consume many vegetables, fruits and fresh seafood. These foods contain ingredients and “good” fats that contain Omega 3, Omega 6, proteins, Vitamin A, zinc and selenium. These ingredients heavily contribute to the balance and maintenance of young, healthy and fresh skin.
Tip – Drinking juice from fresh lemons cleanses the body from toxins and positively affects a healthy skin appearance.
