REMEMBER - USE SUN BLOCK!

It is important to mention sun block. All types of skin need to be treated. There is a tendency for people with darker skin to mistakenly believe that they are protected from the harmful rays of the sun. While it might be true that they get less skin cancer, there is still a significant percentage that do.  With more sun damage and exposure, the risk multiplies.  Of course, their increased pigmentation does not offer any protection for the accelerated aging effect the sun has on their skin. 

To make the point, check out the two pictures below:

The left picture is a 58 year old American Indian female who spent practically all of her time outdoors.  The right picture is a 72 year old Tibetian monk who spent practically all of his time indoors away from the sun.  I believe the pictures say it all!

Sun block is an essential part of an effective skin care products regimen.

Don't forget about your lips. Wearing sunglasses also protects your eyes.  Both areas should not be forgotten.

Don’t Apply Bacteria to Your Face!

Did you know that bacteria are already present in makeup even before you buy it? And, according to the Food and Drug Administration, each time you use a product’s applicator or makeup brush with unclean hands, you are adding more bacteria to both the product and your face! Even if you’re rigorous about cleansing your hands and your makeup utensils before use, cosmetics that have been sitting around for a while still lose their ability over time to kill bacteria (Cohen 2002).

To protect your skin from bacteria, experts recommend that you keep track of how long you’ve been using a product. “The risk of infection can be reduced if you change [products] every three to four months,” recommends Dr. Ashinoff, chief of dermatologic and laser surgery at New York University. How do you know it’s time to toss out a product? Any noticeable change in texture, color, or smell is a clear indication that it’s time to replace the cosmetic. (Cohen 2002).

And while you are updating your products, why not upgrade them? With scientific breakthroughs occurring regularly, be sure that the product you are using to moisturize your face contains superb hydrating agents and the latest cutting-edge antioxidants that protect against cell destructors (including sun exposure.

DON'T FORGET ABOUT NUTRITION

Keeping the skin in proper working order requires a balanced diet rich in vitamins like C, A, and E as well as those in the B-complex group.  Each of these vitamins helps maintain skin function in a different way:

  • Vitamin C helps the body create collagen.

  • Vitamin A is required by skin cells for maintenance and repair.

  • Vitamin E improves circulation, aids in repairing tissue and reduces scarring in some wounds.

  • Vitamin B3 is particularly helpful in the formation of healthy new skin cells.

  • Niacin improves blood flow to the skin's surface.

    The antioxidant vitamins (C, A and E) may also assist in scavenging mutant cells known as free radicals.  (Free radicals are created either as a by-product of the immune system's battle against infection or by environmental toxins.)  Minerals like chromium and zinc are also necessary.  Chromium aids in reducing infections to the skin, while zinc helps heal tissue and prevent scarring.

  • don't forget the importance of stress management

    It's true — our emotions show on our faces. (And not just in the form of furrowed brows and frown lines.) When we are under stress, our bodies react with varying hormonal fluctuations, release of toxins, constriction of blood vessels and depletion of hydration.  Stress lowers our resistance to infection and interrupts normal sleep patterns.  Guess what?  These reactions directly affect the skin's ability to perform at an optimal level.

    get your beauty sleep

    Proper rest and relaxation help your skin - as well as the rest of your body — to operate at peak performance.  How much rest is enough?  Individuals vary.  Some find that eight hours a night is not enough.  Others thrive on five hours or less.  It's important to find the amount of sleep that is best for you and make time for it.  Not only will you feel better... you'll look better, too!

    exercise is also great for your skin

    Taking step-aerobics classes does more than just tone your quadriceps.  When you exercise, you increase your oxygen intake, improve your circulation, lower your blood pressure, promote more restful sleep, induce perspiration (and the excretion of toxins) as well as release endorphins — a group of naturally-occurring proteins that help lift spirits as well as zap pain.  It has been shown that people who exercise live longer and more often describe their lives as happier and less stressful than those who are sedentary.
