Skin Care Information and Advice

Beauty comes from within!

Julianne Gardiner - Tuesday, August 06, 2013

I am a big believer in looking after your skin and using good skin care, that is something that I strongly believe in for many reasons.  People spend a lot of money on clothes, shoes, hair and accessories but sometimes they forget about their skin.  I don't understand this because to me your skin is for life.  You can always buy new accessories and clothes but you can't buy new skin.  (well you can pay for surgery, injection's etc... but who can afford this).  So in my opinion skin care is the most important part of looking after yourself.  Skin care necessities:

1. Sunscreen - every day.  Don't worry about the vitamin D.  We will get enough exposure through our body especially if you have English skin because it doesn't take much exposure to get your daily dose.  You still get some sun exposure through sunscreen.

2.  Vitamins and Mineral for the skin.  If your skin is moisturised with healthy ingredients it will function healthy.  Watered down products or products with less vitamins and minerals will not give your skin enough nutrients to be healthy.  If your skin is healthy you shouldn't even need to exfoliate very often because it will shed cells at the normal rate and your skin will look healthy and glowing.

3.  Do not over exfoliate or do too many peels.  God gave you a skin barrier and dead skin cells for a reason.  They are to protect you from free radical damage and UV damage.  So why remove them?.  Gently exfoliation is ok but if you do to many deep peels you are going to weaken your skin and then it will age quicker.  Everything in moderation.

Anyway the most important thing that you can do for your skin is to be happy.  Stress is the number one cause of aged skin.  In life we can't control a lot of things that happen to us but we can control how we deal with them.  We can take the positives from every situation we come across.  Stress doesn't solve anything it just eats away at our happiness and health.

Another reason to be happy is, have you ever noticed that sometimes it's not the more attractive people that are having the most fun but it is the happy confident people that are having the most fun and because they are so happy they attract people and have a great time.  They glow from within.  This is very attractive.

Beauty really does come from within!!
