Do you know that your skin is your first line of defence against the entire world? The skin safely holds in all your body fluids, protects you against dehydration, keeps harmful microbes away, and hosts all the nerve endings that make it possible to appreciate tactile sensations such as cold, heat, and even pain.
As the largest organ covering your entire body, the skin protects you from harmful ultra-violet rays from the sun and produces vitamin D which is important for many body functions. The skin even helps to regulate temperature during hot or cold seasons. It improves our appearance and self-confidence too. Supple, blemish and wrinkle-free, soft skin not only looks beautiful but boosts your self-esteem too.
Given the important role the skin plays in protecting your body and appearance, it is important to keep it as healthy as you possibly can. A healthy skin prevents damage to your internal organs, bones, and muscles.
Your lifestyle and the type of skin care products you use have a major impact on the health of your skin. You can reduce skin health problems by adopting simple daily habits such as:
· Consuming a healthy diet made of anti-oxidant rich vegetables and fruits
· Regular exercise
· Drinking plenty of water, preferably 6 glasses per day
· Maintaining high levels of hygiene
· Avoiding soaps or skin care products made with harsh agents
· Combating signs of aging
The first signs of aging usually appear on your skin. It begins to sag, dries out, loses its shiny lustre and develops wrinkles, freckles, and spots. The skin even starts showing spider veins as you age.
Basic lifestyle changes can significantly help to improve the health and appearance of your skin but with the right anti-aging creams and lotions, you can achieve a better, smoother, and younger complexion. The Youth Gems range of anti-aging skin care products come with Peptides and Neotivin, which promote skin healing and regeneration to give you the smooth complexion that you desire to have.
