What Is Natural Skin Care
Simply put ‘natural skin care’ is giving care to your skin in a natural and chemical-free way. ‘Natural skin care’ advocates enabling the skin to take care of itself (without any help from synthetic materials/ chemicals). ‘Natural skin care’ is about instilling of good habits in the way you lead your day to day life. A lot of natural skin care measures are really the same as those for body care.
So let’s see what these natural skin care measures are.
All right the first and the best natural skin care measure is – ‘Drink a lot of water’. More or less 8 glasses of water is a essential everyday. Water assists in flushing out the toxins from the body, in a natural way. It aids in the overall care of the body and promotes good health for all organs (not just skin).
General cleanliness is additional affordable way of natural skin care. Regular shower, wearing clean clothes and sleeping on a clean mattress/pillow are all part of general cleanliness. After all, clean skin is the key to keeping the skin problem at bay.
Regular work out is the next thing on the cards. Exercise increases the flow of blood that helps in doing away with body toxins and keeping you fit. Exercise as well helps in beating stress which is one of the worst enemies of good health.
Healthy nutrient and eating habits are as well recommended for natural skin care. A few types of foods (e.g. oily food) are know to cause acne and should be avoided as much as possible. Your diet should be a healthy blend of assorted nutritious supplying foods. Raw fruits and vegetables are best-known to provide freshness to your body and assist in getting rid of body toxins.
A good night sleep is as well helpful in maintaining good health and in beating stress. As a natural skin care measure, a good sleep delays slacking of skin.
Beating stress is another natural skin care therapy. Stress efforts overall harm to body and health. Drinking a lot of water, getting a sound sleep and exercise has already been mentioned as stress busters. Pampering in a warm bubble bath, listening to music and playing your favourite sport are also beneficial ways of beating stress. Yoga is even another way of beating stress; it is fast gaining popularity among the masses.
Avoiding excessive exposure to sun (by wearing long sleeved clothes, hat and umbrella etc), is another natural skin care strategy. Sunscreen lotions are also recommended as essential.
Several traditional and home made natural skin care products/ measures are also known to be really effective. These measures are not only natural and easy-to-follow, but also relatively affordable.
Besides that, a lot of natural skin care products are available in the commercial market. These include things like lavender oil, aloe vera etc., which don’t have any side effects.
