Skin is the largest organ of our body and it depicts our internal health. Whatever is applied on skin gets absorbed by the body, hence it’s imperative to carefully choose skin care products and cosmetics.
Our skin needs to breathe, it needs effective yet gentle care. The harshness of chemicals in makeup and skin care products destroy natural pH balance (acidic level) that either makes skin too dry, too oily or too sensitive. That does not mean we should stop wearing makeup or using any readily available skin care product. The point is to have a right balance.
Make sure to use good quality makeup suitable for your skin type (oily, dry or combination) and always remove it before going to bed with a natural makeup remover like olive oil so that your skin can breathe and rejuvenates at night as cell regeneration is faster at night than day. All our skin requires is essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes and anti-oxidants that replenish skin.
Natural ingredients contain these nutrients in the most unadulterated form. Fruits, vegetables, milk, curd, spices, herbs and oils can provide all that your skin needs without any side effects of harmful chemicals.
Achieving healthy skin is not an uphill task but it definitely requires a consistent and mindful effort.
Try deep breathing, write a journal, avoid negativity and have a positive outlook. Positivity shines through your skin.
Even if you are going out for 5 minutes or its cloudy outside do wear SPF 30+ sunscreen to prevent UV rays from penetrating and damage skin cells. Zinc oxide and titanium oxide are two important ingredients a good sunscreen should have.
