No-Fuss Tips To Healthy And Younger-Looking Skin - Articles Surfing

Nowadays, women have to juggle many things all at once. They need to focus on their career, take care of the house, and have quality time with their children and family. Aside from all of these, women are also expected to look beautiful and maintain their youth, or else their partners or husbands might wander off with a younger vixen.

As a result of all the pressures that the members of the female gender have to face, many women end up being frustrated and looking older than they really are. But maintaining one's looks and skin is actually not that hard to do. Here are some tips that will help you achieve fabulous-looking skin without spending too much money and wasting too much of your precious time.

Drink Up

Water is essential for a lot of body functions, including the elimination of toxins and wastes and the moisturizing of the skin from the inside. If you want to maintain a healthy body and gorgeous skin, you need to drink not less than eight glasses of water a day. During summer or hot days, you should also increase your intake of water. Although drinking other beverages, such as cola or coffee, can also increase your fluid intake, it is still best to stick to water when it comes to keeping your skin and body rehydrated because water has zero calories and no sugar.

Be Smart When It Comes To The Sun

Whatever the weather or season is, you need to always apply sun block or sunscreen whenever you are going outside. Even if it is snowing outside or the weather seems downcast, you still have to apply sunscreen every time you step out your door during the day, especially from ten in the morning to four in the afternoon. In fact, you also need to put on sun protection even when you are indoors if you are going to expose your skin to halogen or very bright and intense lights. The harmful rays of the sun cause premature aging and are responsible for the development of wrinkles, liver spots, and even skin cancer.

Add Some Fat In Your Diet

Do not completely eliminate fat in your diet; just make sure that the type of fat you consume is the good kind. Stay away from saturated fat but eat at least two servings of essential fatty acids, which are found in codfish, salmon, coconut, flaxseed, avocado, and nuts. These good fats are crucial components of the body's natural oils, which are responsible for maintaining the softness and suppleness of your skin. Moreover, these healthy fats are also useful in taming inflamed skin.

Skip The Alcohol

One of the leading causes of skin dehydration is too much alcohol consumption. If you don't want dull and dry skin, you better limit your drinking sprees to only two drinks a week. Although a glass of wine contains several antioxidants, which are also helpful in keeping your heart and skin healthy, there are other types of food that are also high in antioxidants which you can choose.

Increase Fruits And Vegetables In Your Diet

People who love to eat raw fruits and vegetables usually have a natural rosy glow. Fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins A, C and E, which are known antioxidants that fight free radicals and restore skin vitality. Five to ten servings of fruits everyday are what you need in order to ensure a healthy body and beautiful skin.

Don't Forget To Apply Moisturizer

As you grow older, your body's ability to retain water decreases. Thus, your skin needs some help from the outside to retain its firmness and to combat dryness. Use lotion on your body, especially on your hands, after each time you take a bath. It is also imperative that you dab a good moisturizer on your face to maintain a soft, wrinkle-free and younger-looking skin.
