Crescent Oaks Skin Care Tips
Great skin is not simply a matter of DNA – your daily habits, what you drink, eat, etc. in fact, have a big impact on what you see in your mirror! Skin care truly does start from within the body!!!
Good skin care — including healthy diet, sun protection and gentle cleansing — can keep your skin healthy and glowing.
- Eat a healthy diet: A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. The association between diet and acne isn't clear — but some research suggests that a diet rich in fish oil or fish oil supplements and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin. Always DRINK plenty of WATER to help keep your skin hydrated.
- Protect yourself from the sun: One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems---as well as increase the risk of skin cancer.
- DO NOT SMOKE!
Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin, which decreases blood flow and makes skin paler. This also depletes the skin of oxygen ad nutrients that are important to skin health. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin — the fibers that give your skin strength and elasticity. In addition, the repetitive facial expressions you make when smoking — such as pursing your lips when inhaling and squinting your eyes to keep out smoke — can contribute to wrinkles. In addition, smoking increases your risk of squamous cell skin cancer. If you smoke, the best way to protect your skin is to quit. Ask your doctor for tips or treatments to help you stop smoking.
- Treat your skin gently
Daily cleansing and shaving can take a toll on your skin.
To keep it gentle:
Limit bath time. Hot water and long showers or baths remove oils from your skin. Limit your bath or shower time and use warm — rather than hot — water. Avoid strong soaps. Strong soaps and detergents can strip oil from your skin. Instead, choose mild handmade plant-based oils and cleansers.
- Shave carefully.To protect and lubricate your skin, apply shaving cream, lotion or gel before shaving. For the closest shave, use a clean, sharp razor. Shave in the direction the hair grows, not against it.
- Pat dry.After washing or bathing, gently pat or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains on your skin.
- Moisturize you skin: Always use a simple handmade plant-based moisturizer that fits your skin type. These simple natural oils are what your your skin needs.

5. Manage stress
Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin — and a healthy state of mind — take steps to manage your stress. Get enough sleep, set reasonable limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy. The results might be more dramatic than you expect.
Hope you enjoy these helpful tips. Remember Healthy diet, Beautiful skin, Peaceful Mind, Happy Life!!!!!
