How To Have Better Skin

by - December 31, 2018

We all want to keep our skin looking youthful, yet, ageing is a process that none of us are immune to and no matter what wonderful potions we put on our skin, we are all subject to the effect of gravity and what were once young, fresh and sparkling eyes become tired looking and drained over time.

That said, there are things we can do optimise our skin.  It’s important to understand that the skin is an organ, which means, we must not look at having great skin as something merely external.  Any dermatologist will tell you that one of the most simple ways to transform the state of your skin is to ensure you remain well hydrated, as often, it’s a lack of hydration that causes dull skin and dark circles around the eyes.

In that vein, let’s take a look at some of the best ways to get better skin.

Experts recommend we get between six and nine hours of sleep each night, though many of us due to busy lifestyles are getting much less than we require, particularly if we have children.

The visible effects of a lack of sleep are easily recognisable and few things are more helpful than getting enough sleep to ensure the reduction of tired puffy eyes and more healthy looking skin.

Most of us know the importance of moisturising our skin on a daily basis, but it’s not just what we put on our bodies that counts - it’s what we put in our bodies too.  In fact, as mentioned above, many times we are putting lotions on our body that aren’t able to be absorbed.  

You might want to consider moisturising with an organic product that can be absorbed by the body, like aloe vera which is nutrient rich and absorbed by the skin like a sponge - where it is transported down to the dermis layer of the skin, bringing with it, an abundance of vitamins, minerals and amino acids all of which are wonderful for the skin.

Water is essential for the healthy function of all our organs, including our skin, and when you are dehydrated it shows on the skin like a mirror - in fact, if you suffer with dark circles around your eyes, this is often due to a lack of dehydration just as much as it is a lack of sleep.  

You don’t need to drink just water, to hydrate, but if you think coffee, tea or fizzy drinks such as coca cola add to your daily intake of water, you would be wrong, as they all contain caffeine which dehydrates rather than hydrates you.  

Therefore, if the recommended water intake is eight glasses of water a day, for each cup of coffee or soft drink you consume, you need to consume an additional glass of water to compensate for the dehydrating effect.  The basic point is the more water you drink (within reason) the healthier your skin will look.
