Keep Your Skin Health

To keep skin healthy, it needs to be treated from within. Drink plenty of water is one of the easiest steps to get started. Approximately 70% of skin consists of water. Therefore drink at least eight glasses of water a day. If you have increasing daily activities, then you should also drink more.

Nutritional intake is also worth noting. The skin contains protein, fat, carbohydrate, and mineral elements. People who are on a diet one element of a particular food will disrupt the balance of nutrients that will not impact on skin health. The skin will look dull.

Do it right skin care. You can clean your face properly. The quantity of cleaning depends on the activities undertaken. If you do not sweat too much or exposed to quite a lot of dust, washing your face twice a day is enough done. Once in the morning and before bed. Do not wash face excessively because it can damage the protective layer of fat found on the skin surface, thus making the skin becomes dry. Maximum five times a day. Soap used to wash should also be adjusted to your skin type. Soap containing bases will neutralize the pH of the skin so the skin becomes dry and damaged skin. This is because our skin is actually acidic, and has a normal pH of 5.5.

Keep the skin from the sun, especially between the hours of 08:00 until 16:00 that contain lots of UV. But actually we are not completely safe from UV rays, because UV rays can be reflected to the ground or street. Inside the home, UV light can enter through windows or doors. Therefore, use sun cream every day, even when you're in the house though.

When poor nutrition and population is very high, we need extra antioxidants to the skin. Antioxidants can be obtained by mouth, or applied topically. Vitamins A, C, E, and selenium are antioxidants that can endure rate of the aging process. Vitamin A can help the formation of collagen and improve skin texture. Vitamin C serves to form collagen, and helps the formation of elastin. Vitamin E works together with vitamin A to provide protection and slow the aging of skin cells. Minerals such as selenium can help obstruct  fat oxidation, protects skin from damage due to UV rays, and protect the immune system. Zinc and beta-carotene is another antioxidant that can help skin care. Beta-carotene can increase the intake of oxygen in the skin. Zinc can stimulate the formation of new skin cells.
