Good skin reflects a healthy body and a good digestive system. People who suffer from skin disorder such as acne, psoriasis and rosacea usually also suffer from constipation and other digestive problems, and these can easily be solved by adopting some natural skin care remedies.
The reason for a bad digestion could be:
1) Low water intake. (Water washes the cells and gets rid of waste products.)
2) Not enough intake of fiber. (Fiber is one of the building blocks of our body.)
Most people ignore the importance of fiber in their diets. The average person would take about 12 grams of fiber a day. The national academy of sciences food and nutrition board suggested that men between ages nineteen to 50 should take a recommended 38 grams of fiber a day and women between these same ages should take 25 grams of fiber.
A good natural skin care remedy to keep your skin in shape is to brush your skin gently with a soft brush before taking a shower. This way the dead skin cells which clog the pores are eliminated and the skin is allowed to detoxify. This exercise also improves the blood circulation and eliminates puffiness. An added benefit of this practice is a calming effect on the nervous system.
Do not stay inactive for long periods of time. Frequent movement is good for the overall system – skin, stress level, and general health. Sitting for long periods can cause puffiness, bloating, acne, and cellulite. Best thing is to take a quick break and go outside for a walk. Stand up and stretch every few hours and book an appointment with a massage therapist.
Excess sugar is considered to be one of the primary causes of accelerated aging. Excess sugar entering our bodies can cause glycation; a process in which a glucose molecule damages a protein molecule by sticking to it. The resultant new molecules are known as AGEs or advanced glycation end-products. AGEs are a cause for damage in the skin and loss of its elasticity. In the later stages’ wrinkles begin to form and the skin begins to hang.
Essential fatty acids are fats that your body cannot survive without. These fats are required in making hormones, cell membranes and/or other such body chemicals. These fats are also responsible keeping the heart healthy and preventing cancer. People who suffer from inflammatory conditions like eczema, dry skin and acne are also probably lacking these fats.
Use Walnut oil and flaxseed with vinegar as a natural skin care remedy. These oils should be kept refrigerated and should ever never be heated or used for cooking. Salmons and sardines are also a good source for these essential fats.
Keeping the skin young, vibrant, healthy and supple pays back high dividends and it does not take a lot of doing to make considerable difference in your diet and general living habits. Small changes that you make in your daily eating and living habits are the only natural skin care remedies we recommend, and they can go a long way in ensuring young and healthy skin.
