Natural Skin Care

Why do most vegetarians have such smooth, shiny, young-looking skin? Because meat contains toxins. These toxins are naturally released through your skin. When they are, they show up as wrinkles, acne, discoloration, and other skin conditions.

In order to have great looking skin you need to switch to a diet of primarily organic fruits and vegetables. Your healthy diet should be done in conjunction with a lot of exercise to rid harmful toxins from your body. Sweating is your bodies fastest way to get rid of these toxins.

Remember that your skin has pores so anything that you put onto your skin is absorbed by your body. At Diet Health and Fitness our motto is “If you can’t eat it, don’t put it onto your skin.”

Many store bought skin care creams are loaded with harmful chemicals and toxins that have been linked to many different types of cancers. Read the ingredients of regular sunscreen. You wouldn’t dunk your arm into a chemistry experiment would you?

Than why would you rub chemicals all over your body? Because the T.V. or some company’s scientist told you to?

When you do your own research and learn the truth you will never want to buy regular sunscreen again. Use organic or natural sunscreens instead. They leave out the harmful chemicals, but still protect you from sunburn.

Quit Smoking and Drinking

Another natural skin care tip that often is ignored, due to addiction, is to quit smoking and/or drinking alcohol. In the case of smoking, instead of the skin receiving oxygen it is being fed chemicals and toxins that make it look anything but appealing. That is why most smokers have a gray complexion and look ten years older than they are.

The same is true for alcohol consumption as it deprives your blood of oxygen and dries out your skin. Too much alcohol can cause wrinkles and bags under your eyes.

Stop Being So Stressed Out

In our opinion most people live at a pace that is not conducive to a healthy life. It is well documented that stress can cause every disease. Whether it is mental stress or anxiety caused by frequent changes in your environment it is going to show on your skin. You need to learn meditation techniques, yoga, tai chi, or a perform a hard fitness routine to learn how to naturally relax.

There is no reason to live at warp speed. Slow yourself down and your overall health will improve.

Clean Hands Helps Maintain Healthy Skin

Ask any health expert and they will tell you that the hands are the number one enemy to healthy skin. Refrain from touching your face and you will prevent the transfer of germs and bacteria to your skin.

Don’t Wash Your Face Too Often

Overusing moisturizers and other topical solutions only dries out your skin and if the skin care products aren’t natural you are only putting more toxins on your skin. Washing too often tends to dry out the skin. You should wash your face no more than two times a day…
