Strengthening Your Skin's Immunity Can Make You Look Younger
Women are increasingly suffering from 'sick skin' according to some skin care experts - caused by stressful lifestyles, polluted environments, diet and an overload of cosmetics. Leading to dry skin, acne, dull lifeless looking skin and premature ageing. If this sounds familiar, then you need to start strengthening your skin's immunity now.
Strengthening the immune system is paramount to fighting off colds and infections. However the skin's immune system is often neglected, although it is hugely responsible for fighting off ageing attackers such as UV rays, pollution, toxic overload and stress. When working optimally, a healthy skin can protect itself and resist the signs of ageing.
How do you go about strengthening your skin's immunity?
We have 3 words for you: Protect, Nourish, Enhance
First and foremost you need to protect your skin. As you have probably heard us say before, your number one anti-ageing product is your daily sunscreen application (applied all year round). 90% of ageing is caused by sun exposure. The skin's immune system is weakened by free radical damage caused by the sun's UV rays and your collagen and elastin stores are damaged. Leading to unwanted lines, wrinkles and facial sagginess.
Antioxidants such as vitamin C prevent free radical damage. Wearing a vitamin c serum daily under your sunscreen will help further protect against pollution, UV rays and stress. Stem cell skincare has also shown to support the skin's natural defence mechanisms.
Protect with hydration; drinking water daily will help your skin retain moisture and keep it's protective oil barriers in good shape to protect against environmental factors.
You want to maximise your skin's natural ability to heal, protect and look youthful. What you put in and on your body impacts your skin significantly, you can't nourish the one without the other and expect amazing results, they have a symbiotic relationship.
In the same way that Vitamins A, C and E can boost your immune system to fight off viruses, they are also the most important skin vitamins to reduce free radical damage, protect collagen, reverse the signs of ageing and boost the health of skin. Applying a vitamin rich A,C,E serum will nourish your skin.
Think about your skin when you eat. What you eat will show on your skin the next day. If you're consuming a diet high in processed foods, sugar and alcohol, your skin's immune system will be compromised and vulnerable to ageing attackers. You will get tired easily, which will be evident in your skin and you will look older.
The mineral zinc is great for healthy skin too, found in pumpkin seeds, grass-fed beef and yoghurt, it helps prevent breakouts, regulates natural oil production and helps balance hormones. Selenium, found in nuts and turkey, protects against UV damage and promotes youthful skin elasticity.
Your Daily Nourishing Arsenal Should Consist Of: Lots of colourful fruit and veggies, nuts, seeds and high quality protein. A mediterranean style diet does wonders for the skins immunity and keeping it more youthful. Plus a vitamin rich serum that suits your skins needs.
Now that you have got the most important steps sorted in protecting and feeding your skin's immunity you can boost your skin's radiance and youthfulness.
You can easily speed up your skin's renewal process and reverse the signs of ageing at two levels.
Firstly, at a deeper structural level:
The skin is meant to be firm, elastic and resilient but over time if the body is not looked after with exercise and the right diet the muscles waste away and become flaccid. Especially true for facial muscles, where the skin is attached directly to the facial muscles. That is why it is crucial to regularly work the facial muscles and keep the muscle fibres shortened and strong so that the skin remains lifted and strong. This is easily achieved with daily facial exercise, using a device such as Tua Tre'nd or Tua Viso, strengthening the facial muscles naturally. Plus the stimulation and strengthening of facial muscles will boost your skin's immunity, much in the same way physical fitness boosts your immune system.
Secondly, at a more surface level:
The body is an electrical energetic being and thrives off energy; adding energy into the skin excites the cells and gets them working more effectively. Electrical impulses produced by that of Tua Trend or Tua Spa excite the skins fibroblasts to stimulate youth enhancing collagen and elastin, plus aids lymphatic drainage and speeds up skin renewal.
Using a retinol product at night will speed up skin renewal too and enhance collagen production. Retinol should only be applied at night.
You can also enhance your skin's regeneration by lowering stress levels, getting enough sleep and ensuring you get regular you time. If your body is in harmony it will show in your skin too, a happy healthy you equals a youthful vibrant skin for life.
Your Daily Enhancing Arsenal Should Consist Of: You time. A good retinol serum applied at night only. Facial strengthening exercises with Tua Trend or Tua Viso. At least 8 hours of quality sleep a night.
To a more youthful you.
