Everything will shape your body and your routine. The word habit often comes with a somewhat negative connotation, but that being said, it’s more than possible for you to create habits that go on to benefit you.

Tips for great skin.

Wash your Face

Washing your face will remove any dirt will make your pores look much bigger. You should try and wash your face whenever you wake up so that you can remove dirt and any oil.  You should also wash your face when you sweat or even when you work out. Ideally, you should be using a gentle and natural face wash because it will contain organic ingredients. It’s also worth looking up home remedies for soft hands as well.

Get some More Sleep

Beauty sleep is a huge thing. Your body will need around 7-9 hours of sleep every night so that you can rest and restore. It will also help you to rejuvenate and repair too. It’s like going to the fountain of youth on a nightly basis. Your skin will produce new collagen when you sleep too. If you want to maintain a high level of sleep hygiene, then you need to have a good sleep schedule. You also need to have a nice and dark environment. If you can build half an hour into your schedule before you go to bed, then you may find that it is more than possible for you to cleanse your skin properly. There are many face masks and kits out there that you can use to stop your skin from drying out and this is major to say the least.

Breathe in Clean Air

Heavy air pollution and even cigarette smoke can harm your skin. Artificial fragrances aren’t much better as they form harmful free radicals. They cause skin irritation as well. If you cannot avoid things like this, then you need to try and repair your skin with products that are not toxic. Try and use very natural and organic products if possible and also make sure that they contain a lot of antioxidants. If you can do this, then you can help to undo some of the damage that the polluted air will do to your skin.

Using Antioxidants

Free radicals can easily do a huge amount of damage to your body. They are generated by fried food, pesticides and even alcohol. Antioxidants on the other hand help to neutralize any free radicals. They are basically natural superheroes and for this reason, it’s so important for you to eat foods that contain them. This can include blueberries, strawberries and pecans. Vitamin C and green tea are also very good options, and if you don’t like these then you can easily have liquorice root and pomegranate.

Exfoliate your Face

It’s so important that you look out for ingredients that gently exfoliate your skin. This can include alpha hydroxy acids. Alpha hydroxy acids soak into the skin and act as a natural glue, so if you can find a product that contains ingredients such as this then you can be sure to rocket your health overall.

Workout

Exercise helps you by increasing your blood flow and it also draws oxygen into your free radicals. Exercise is also ideal at decreasing stress and it greatly improves the quality of your sleep. You just have to make sure that you wash yourself after you have had a sweaty workout. If you can do this, then you will soon find that you can reap the benefits.

Moisturize

If you can use a moisturizer every day, then this is very important for your skin. It doesn’t matter if you have dry, mature, acne-prone or oily skin because if you moisturize properly then this will help you to stop dry and flaky skin. It can also keep your skin cells performing as they should. This will help to prevent any fine lines and it will also stop wrinkles too. Many skincare treatments will contain ingredients that help to moisturize and then nourish the skin. If you can, choose a moisturizer that is organic. If you can do this, then you will soon find that it is easier than ever for you to reap the benefits that come with taking care of yourself.

Of course, there are many things that you can do to rocket your health and if you follow this guide, you’ll soon find that you can have happier and healthier skin.

 

 

 

Secret Aesthetic

Wednesday 6th of April 2022

As we age, we will all develop fine lines and wrinkles at some point in our lives. When and how severely this will manifest is a basic combination of nature and nurture. What most people don’t know is that there are different subgroups of lines and wrinkles all with their own causes and remedies. By using our muscles repeatedly throughout our lives, the skin becomes creased and wrinkled over the areas used most. These lines become most apparent on our faces often when we engage the muscles to make certain facial expressions. These lines are also known as ‘dynamic lines’. These are the ones we target with anti-wrinkle injections.

Botox (Botulinum toxin) type A is a purified neurotoxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It works by blocking the impulses to muscles thereby restricting their movement. Clinical grade cosmetic Botox ® is a prescription only medication extracted and purified from the original paralytic agent. Once injected, it temporarily weakens the contraction of the targeted muscle, resulting in the softening and relaxing of the lines and wrinkles caused by the underlying muscle, creating a dramatically smoother, younger-looking appearance. Although there is no reversal agent to date, it is naturally broken down by the body over months, allowing movement to gradually return. The idea is that by reducing the movement of muscles in these overactive areas, the overlying skin is given time to rest and recover, allowing the skin creases and wrinkles to soften and eventually fade away. Depending on each individual’s wishes, the dose and treatment regime can be adjusted to allow for a more natural softening of expressions and lines to a complete smoothening of skin texture. For the first few years, more frequent treatments are required to ‘re-educate’ the muscles.
