Natural Skin Care Tips - Avoid Toxins in Your Skin Care Routine

Would you like to have beautiful, young looking skin free of lines and wrinkles, blemishes and skin problems such as acne, rosacea and more? Young-looking beautiful skin is easier than you think using these natural skin care remedies.

Let’s face it, chemicals, preservatives and additives just aren’t good for our bodies. The rising use of these, plus pesticides in our environment have coincided with an explosion in cancer rates. The skin is the largest organ in the body and absorbs whatever is put on it. This included the chemicals in your skin care products.

Many products claim to be natural or organic but unless a product says 100% certified organic, then there are probably chemical additives in it. By the nature of creating a product and putting it on a shelf in a store, certain ingredients are required to extend shelf life.

The word “natural” has been over-used to the point of almost having no meaning. Sugar is a “natural” ingredient so it’s possible to purchase a “natural” cereal which is still loaded with sugar. Skin care products are the same.

The chemicals added to many skin products have been shown to cause cancer, neurological problems and more. The safest course is to avoid them altogether.

The best natural skin care products are products without the above ingredients or products you make yourself. If you would like a free copy of Homemade Recipes for Natural Skin Care, simply email me.

Drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day helps keep the toxins and wastes cleansed from your body and keeps your skin supple and hydrated.

OK, you’ve heard that before but for your skin, the nutrients in fruits and vegetables are essential for beautiful skin.

Whole grains, nuts, seeds and fish like salmon and tuna are excellent sources of omega 3 fatty acids and essential oils which keep the skin hydrated. Fatty acids also help prevent damage from UV rays from sun exposure.

Whether or not you live a healthy lifestyle is going to show up on your skin. If you want young-looking, supple skin no matter what your age, two things you must protect yourself from are smoking and sun exposure.

Smoking robs your body of all-important nutrients which help keep your skin young and exposure to sun causes “age spots” which could easily turn into skin cancers. Overexposure to the sun’s UV rays also causes the skin to become wrinkled and hardened, which can make you look old, even if you aren’t.

Wear protective sunscreen daily on exposed parts of the body. Choose at least an SPF15 for daily wear and a higher SPF if you are going to be out in the sun for an extended period.

Wear hats and protective clothing when out in the sun and sunglasses with UV protection. Shading your eyes can help prevent those tiny wrinkles around the eyes.

Exercise helps keep both the skin and entire body young and supple. Get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. It doesn’t have to be more than taking a walk but do something!

Do something to relieve stress. Stress is hard on your skin! Again exercise can help with this. Try a stress-busting yoga program or tai chi. Learn meditation.
