Join the Fight for Healthy Skin

If you have two people with the same lifestyle habits, the same type of skin and skincare program; chances are that one person would still have more youthful skin than the other. That’s because some people are fortunate enough to have good genes.

Heredity is a huge factor and determinant of how you age. The composition of a person’s DNA plays a huge role in their skin type and skin maintenance. Some people are quite lucky which results in them having beautiful, healthy, and youthful skin well into their late years, while others have to put extra effort to achieve this.

People also need to eat a healthy, balanced diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, dairy products, lean meats, and grains to have healthy skin and bodies. Avoiding canned foods, processed foods, and foods containing large amounts of sodium also helps in skin maintenance.

The wonderful thing about paying attention to what you eat as part of your skincare plan is that the results you get are not superficial, which means it works from the inside out and its effect is long term.

People that increase the levels of vitamin C in their diet have less risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, heart disease, and certain cancers in both women and men.

Citrus fruits that include grapefruits, lime, tangerines, and oranges, help fight against poor immune system. You also find many vital antioxidants in apricots, peaches, and cantaloupes, while apples, blueberries, strawberries, and bananas are extremely high in vitamins.

Help your digestive system with foods containing lots of fiber; these include all dark green vegetables, kale, lettuce, spinach, celery, cucumbers, carrots, and more. 

As we age there are some cells in our body that stop dividing, these cells are helpful in many ways and they help in killing cancer cells but the problem is, instead of dying and getting replaced like other cells, they remain alive and accumulate as they have in-built protection. 

When they become too much they cause various health problems and age-related issues. There are now drugs that work on these cells but still allow them to do their job as they are sort of a necessary evil. They are very helpful but sometimes they take their job too seriously.

One factor that is not well spoken of is the psychological aspect, no matter how much time and money you put into products, and how good your lifestyle is, everything will not matter to you if you don’t appreciate yourself mentally.

Self-value gives its own kind of beauty, youth, and radiance that you cannot buy anywhere. No skincare product can give this to you. So while it is good to put other things necessary in place, we still have to live through every single day of life with self-love.
