Healthy Habits of Beautiful Skin

"Quality is not an act...it is a habit."-Aristotle

Don't Just Sit....Keep Fit! Exercise your
mind, body and soul with a daily dose of heart-pounding
physical activity. Exercise not only relieves stress and
anxiety, but also improves the health of collagen-producing
skin tissue known as fibroblast. Leading a sedentary life of
inactivity will only pave the way for a host of problematic
skin and health concerns! Regular exercise improves blood
circulation, eliminates villainous toxins and delivers vital
nutrients (including oxygen) to regenerating skin cells. Be
sure to promptly cleanse your face and body post-workout to
prevent exercise-induced bouts of acne. On a similar note,
Natural Skin Shop recommends a makeup-free sweat session
paired with loose-fitting clothes! Constricting apparel and
cosmetics inadvertently trap harmful bacteria and toxins
inside pores... Now take a deep breath... Lumirance Gel
Cleanser eliminates surface impurities with a harmonizing
blend of purifying AHAs and soothing botanicals. PS: Rosacea
patients should opt for low-impact activities that won't
flare or aggravate the sensitive condition. Yoga is an ideal
activity for problematic skin as it effectively reduces
stress hormones and increases blood flow.... Hello Mrs.
Glow!

Exfoliate and Speed Up The Turnover Rate! Exfoliation forces
your skin to function properly by swiftly eradicating
unhealthy skin cells thereby making room for new epidermal
growth. A healthy epidermis is renewed approximately every
28 days, however, a bevy of factors can interfere with the
skin's natural reincarnation process. Sun damage, acne and
drying cosmetics can all disrupt the skin's ability to
evenly shed dead skin cells. If that weren't enough,
cellular renewal naturally declines with age. Pick up the
pace with a daily exfoliant such as Peel RX Lactic Acid 5%
Daily Exfoliator. For a more intense form of exfoliation,
skin peels are ideal!

Drink and You Shall Receive! Water is the source of
life....quite literally. The adult human body is comprised
of more than 50% water. It only makes sense that H20
provides quality nourishment to the body's largest
organ...skin! Revive a dull, dehydrated complexion by
increasing your intake of water. For a topical solution,
Mizu Hydrate Serum-Pure features hyaluronic acid, which
effectively binds water to dehydrated skin cells.

Don't Touch That Dial! Phones are loaded with acne-inducing
bacteria! ABC News reported on the hazardous microorganisms
proliferating on the average cell phone.

"New research out of the United Kingdom found mobile phones
are a technological petri dish for tens of thousands of
germs. Why? Germs multiply in warm places. Between the heat
the phones generate and the germs on faces and hands, you've
got a bacterial breeding ground. Believe it or not, the
filthiest phones can spread the dreaded staph bacteria,
which can cause everything from skin infections to
meningitis."

To maintain a clear complexion, be sure to keep cellular
phones at a distance. If your complexion is already plagued
by acne, Glycolic Peels are an effective course of therapy
for problematic skin.

Don't Attempt to Scrub Away Acne! In fact, the
dermatological community often frowns upon mechanical
exfoliation for the treatment of inflamed acne vulgaris.
Overzealous physical exfoliation can create microscopic
tears in the skin and spread harmful bacteria. Inflammatory
acne is a three-part condition involving an excess of
keratin, bacteria and inflammation (an autoimmune response
to the infection). The Jessner Peel combats acne on all
fronts by dissolving dead skin cells and disinfecting the
surface of the skin. Chemical peels effectively disrupt the
formation of acne by accelerating the keratinization process
and eradicating clogged pores. Avoiding abrasive scrubs
containing irregular-shaped, coarse granules is advisable.
