Keeping Your Skin Protected

Our skin is what protects us against injury, heat, and light radiation. Our skin allows us to adjust to the various weather conditions. However, we want to make sure that we protect our skin from getting dry and damaged. With dry skin, it can’t be as effective in protecting us from outside factors, nor can we look our best.

Cosmetic products are very important for protecting our skin, as with age our skin becomes depleted and will need extra help. And to prevent premature skin aging we need also to protect it from the early age. An ounce of prevention is better then a pound of cure - is very appropriate saying here. If you’re an outdoor person, sunscreen is your best friend, for it’ll protect you from skin aging and skin cancer. Lotions provide moisture for your skin to keep it hydrated, as well as necessary vitamins and nutrients essential for it's health. Lotions also replenishes moisture lost by the skin itself.

As soon as you feel your skin dry after exposure to the sun, it means your skin ages faster than normal. Most blonde-haired people are not physiologically equipped to withstand the amount of sun they seek in summer. Sunless self tanners would be a great alternative for those without compromising skin's integrity.

Most people mistake the danger of UV rays with warmth. They start wearing sunscreen only at the warmest summer days. The fact is that UV rays posses the same danger in winter as well as summer, regardless of the temperature outside.

One of the ways to support healthy skin is to flash toxins out of the system by making sure you intake the minimum requirement of water. You should drink about 8-10 8 oz. glasses of water on a daily basis. This will help to keep moisture flowing through your skin, and will wash out anything unnecessary that can cause acne to develop.

Follow these tips for keeping your skin moisturized and you’ll be amazed on how your skin will look and feel.
