Beauty and Skin

Updated on April 16, 2012

Beauty and Skin

Beauty and Skin . Having a great complexion enhances your natural beauty. When we are born we have beautiful skin , never been touched by man or nature. Your skin is the largest organ of the body. How we take care of it determines how we look in it. When we feel good we have a higher self esteem. There are dos and don'ts when it comes to our skin care. Do eat a well balanced diet including fruits and vegetables whenever possible. Never sleep in your makeup! This is and absolute no. Even if your tired try to always remove your makeup. Sleeping in your makeup clogs your pores, not to mention how you look in the mirror the next day. Usually all cracked, chipped and smeared and just plain tired looking. Red puffy swollen eyes or even raccoon eyes from your eye makeup or mascara. Those of you who don't know what raccoon eyes are [There the black smashed mascara look]. If you have never woke up looking like this, you don't want to start now. This is not a pretty site for us ladies out there. When you sleep in your makeup your face usually always breaks out with pimples, bumps or even acne. So wash your face daily, and drink plenty of water. Drinking water is important for our skin and our complexion. Water regulates your skins natural balance.

In the natural course of our life our skin is exposed to all kinds of issues. Our skin is exposed to the sun and it's effects as well as the natural course of us aging. Aging is a part of life and no matter how hard we fight it, aging still occurs. We can try to fight aging with plastic surgery. Aging can also be fought with the some of the best products on the market to date. There are many products on the market to date that claim to be the best. Oil of Olay happens to be one of my favorites. This product happens to have been around a very long time. Since the birth of some of our mothers and grandmothers. Do you remember the little pink jars that it use to come in? I do. My mother still has one. It's a keep sake she says.

Over exposure to the sun can cause long lasting effects are damage to our skin. Always limit your time in the sun. Sun damage builds over time on our skin. Age spots or liver spots as they call them, can also appear on our skin. Sun burn, liver spots or at worst skin cancer can form. If you have a mole and it changes in shape, color or size, have it checked by your dermatologist immediately. Light skin is more prone to skin cancer than most. The sun can also effect your hair. It can cause fading, brittleness and sometimes breakage can occur. Protect your hair by wearing a hat in the sun. Protect your skin by applying sunscreen and limiting your time in the sun. If we take care of our skin and limit exposure time, our skin will stand a better chance of survival.

    This is a great hub. I'm glad that there is so much information out there about how to keep your skin healthy. I still prefer to use minimal products. A gentle face wash, an apricot scrub, sunscreen when needed and a moisturizer. As light and natural as possible...plus, drinking a lot of water makes a visible difference. Thanks for this hub, very informative (voted UP)

    I like to use a glycolic facewash followed by an astringent. Then top off with a moisterizer containing a high SPF. Thanks for sharing.
