Many people wonder how to present the best of their looks. Many people have sought for years to find the answer. This hunt for the best pores and the most glowing of faces has been thought to be found in hot springs across the world, mud and clay from each continent, from the mucous of snails, and even different varieties of milk. Let’s review some ways to maintain your glow.
It’s In the Water
Drinking water does not directly affect your body’s glow. There is a process that the body goes through for hydration to eventually happen. First, you drink the water, then to the intestines and is absorbed into the bloodstream. The kidneys then filter the water. The cells are then hydrated from this flow of water through the body. The process is worth it to help your cells be replenished.
The labels on cigarettes warn us what happens to our lungs and our hearts. The package omits that smoking is also hard on the body. By smoking, you are decreasing the blood flow and narrowing the blood vessels in the outer layers of the face. That means that no oxygen is flowing. Nutrients, as well, are being deprived. Collagen and elastin are also being depleted with every puff the cigarette. This ages the body overall and makes you look older before your years. Also, the chances of having wrinkles intensifies.
Check your diet and see what you have been eating. Eating should be filled with vegetables, fruits, grains, and proteins. If it is filled with fried or processed foods, then you are doing a disservice to your whole body. It is much easier to pick up a bag of potato chips rather than make a salad, but your body is begging you to make better choices. You can do it with more focus on when you are hungry and what fills you up. Trying to drink more water will help with how you may feel hungrier later. Water fills you up. Try having a full glass before each meal. Start to prepare your meals the day before so that when you are eyeing the candy bar you can quickly grab for your prepared meal instead. Adding homemade dips and sauces will make vegetables taste even yummier. A simple YouTube search will bring about lots of fresh choices for making a diet shift. The fresher the food, the better, in order for you to be able to take in the nutrients and keep you looking fresh too.
The Sun Shines
The sun brings us plenty of life and helps us to have more vegetables and fruits, however, it has a limited place when it comes to how long it is exposed to your body. The sunrays with ultraviolet rays will damage the skin’s ability to replenish itself. Moreover, these rays can also increase the chances of skin cancer. The sooner you stop exposing yourself to the sun, the better. It is better to wear protection such as a sunblock cream if you must be out in the sun. This will help to shield you from harm as it is an important part of your skincare regimen.
Apply Sunscreen – the SPF should be at least 15. Apply the sunscreen every two hours in order to have maximum protection throughout your time outdoors.
Seek out the shade – find a shady spot when outdoors. The hours between 11 am and 2 pm. are when the sun is at its strongest. Seek shade.
Wear protective clothing – it may be uncomfortable at first, but wearing protective clothing now will help you later. Try on stylish hats that shade your face and head. Find lightweight long sleeve shirts to reduce sweating.
Cleansing Too Much
We all love a good smelling soap, but some soaps are too drying. No one wants to feel oily, but some natural oils are of great benefit. The natural oils promote healing and make you look healthier. Instead, use a milder soap and only soak in the bath for fifteen minutes or less. Also, shift to lukewarm water for bathing than using water that is too hot.
You treat yourself to many things, but have you thought about treating yourself in order to glow? It is important to clean, but also important to moisturize. Try using a moisturizer with SPF.
Your daily health regimen should be an overall body check. This is challenging to do when we are all so busy with work and family. Tending to ourselves becomes the last priority. With a bit more mindfulness it is possible.
