Creating Beautiful Skin Naturally
Since the beginning of time, people have used skincare to try and improve their skin and to hide the visible signs of ageing, while offering the hopeful user the promise of being a ‘miracle in a jar’. Until recently, most creams remained simple, old-fashioned moisturisers in progressively more modern and expensive packaging.
Healthy Good Looking Skin for Life
The way your skin responds to ageing is due, in part to your genetic make-up. But how you treat your skin has a huge impact on the visible signs. Exposure to sunlight, environmental elements such as air pollution and toxins in your food, and your lifestyle (lack of sleep, stress, smoking and alcohol) all contribute to the visible signs of ageing developing well before their time. So it’s good to know that if you control these factors, you can make a material difference to your skin.
Caring For Your Skin
With the variety of non-surgical interventions available, it’s easy to assume there are enough quick fixes out there to beat skin ageing. However, the best way to achieve a healthy skin is to start using natural and organically based skincare products from a young age. Skincare technology now provides safe and consistent solutions that deliver quick, effective and believable results.
The daily, onslaught by external aggressors on each cell in your body changes oxygen molecules into free radicals wreaking havoc in cells, damaging their wall and connective tissue. These faulty cells then copy themselves, carrying the damage in their blueprint. Anti-oxidants or free-radical scavengers are the best defence against this. The most well-known antioxidants are vitamin C and E, beta-carotene, green tea, rooibos and grape seed extract. They work in different ways, but essentially they attack free-radicals as they form, preventing them doing serious damage in the body. Taking them orally (in your diet or via nutritional supplements) can also help to neutralise the by-products of oxidation in the body. Applying them on your skin (via skincare products), also helps to protect the skin from environmental factors.
