Youthful skin is something that men and women both want -- and 2017 clearly showed that people were increasingly focusing on getting better looking and feeling skin. It may surprise you that getting healthy and good looking skin is not as difficult as you once thought. You just have to find a healthy lifestyle that works for you and with a minimum number of skincare products, you’re set. If you’re one of those people who wants healthy skin, we have come up with a list of things that kill your skin that you must consider.
1.The Environment -- Sun, Dust and Pollution
One of the most common causes of skin damage is the harmful UVA and UVB rays. They have been known to increase the risk of skin cancer. In fact UVA rays have been known to affect the DNA directly, and are the main cause of sunburns. Other stressors for the skin include dust dirt and debris that gets on your face, arms and legs during the course of the day. The smoke from vehicles and from buildings that escapes into the atmosphere as well as pollution in general can cause irreversible damage to the skin. All that damage serves to hasten premature aging, giving you lackluster and dull appearance. Furthermore, tanning beds are a terrible alternative to sun tanning. In fact, people who use tanning beds before before age 35 increase their risk for melanoma by 75 percent.The best you can do is to avoid exposure to these elements as much as you possibly can.
2.Your Lifestyle Choices
The key to preventing skin damage has a lot to do with your lifestyle choices. If you don’t drink much water, or eat too much processed food, it is bound to have an effect on your skin and on the rest of your body. The chemicals used in processed foods make you sick, and a sedentary lifestyle on top of that will make you even more sick. The best thing to do is to drink water that has a high amount of TDS (total dissolved solids). TDS measures the amount of minerals in the water and the higher this is, the better. Also cut back on fatty and processed junk foods and switch to fruits and vegetables to get your skin looking and feeling healthy once more.
3.Lack of Moisture
When there is lack of moisture on your skin, it will feel tighter, duller and flakier. This, over time, will cause premature aging of your skin. More moisture will cause your skin to be oily, greasy and shiny, which is also not desirable. It is important to apply moisturizer to your skin to stop the dullness, and flakiness of the skin but it should be in moderation. Amazology's skin moisturizing solution is all you need to load your skin with nutrient moisture to tone and nourish your skin. A good frequency to apply this is twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the night. Remember that it is important to keep your skin hydrated.
Free radicals are present in the UVA and UVB rays of the sun and are harmful to your body as a whole. They promote the occurrence of skin cancer as well, so minimize your exposure to the sun. A little exposure though is good since it will allow you to get vitamin D naturally without being threatened by free radicals.
This should be obvious, smoking directly affects your skin and damages it! Smoking constricts your blood vessels due to impurities and makes them narrower. Moreover, since the pathway is narrow, sufficient nutrients are not able to reach the skin. All this leaves your skin badly damaged and aged. So do yourself a favor and kick the terrible habit.
