The health of the skin depends on many factors – some can be controlled and some cannot:
Sleep: During sleep your skin renews itself by building new cells. Getting the proper amount of sleep is essential for healthy skin.
Water: Water provides fluid for the body to flush impurities from the system. Drinking 6-8 glasses of water every day helps improve circulation and speeds cell growth.
Nutrition: Food provides the vitamins and minerals the body needs to function. There is a direct correlation between healthy skin and good nutrition.
Exercise: Regular exercise improves circulation and speeds blood to the surface of the skin to regenerate it. Exercise also helps to alleviate the negative effects of stress.
Stress: Stress can have the most dramatic effect on the skin, sometimes causing blemishes (breakouts), and loss of colour and circles under the eyes.
- Smoking constricts facial capillaries allowing less blood, oxygen and nutrients to the surface of the skin. Smoking also wrinkles the skin around the eyes and mouth.
- Alcohol and caffeine are diuretics that can force moisture from the skin.
- Different medications can sometimes adversely effect the skin and make it more sensitive.
