What can you do externally and on a daily basis to enhance your skin? All of us know about the importance of exfoliating and hydrating the skin. How do dead cells build up on our skin? The environment that we live in has a lot to do with this. Urban cities are filled with toxic and polluted air and these toxins are deposited into our pores. Even while this is happening, our internal ecology tries to rid itself of toxicity through the same pores and the result is a gradual build up of dead cells.
What will help in a big way in getting rid of the dead cells is a daily exfoliation routine. This can be done with any of the gentle herbal creams meant especially for this that are available in plenty. This daily exercise will not only help to get rid of dead lacklustre skin, it will also help in accelerating new cell production which will rejuvenate the skin and give it radiance. Remember to use a really gentle exfoliating cream as the cleansing is on a daily basis. If you have an oily skin, you can do this once in the morning and once at night; but if you have a normal, dry or sensitive skin, limit it to once a day cleansing.
Aloe vera, a common desert plant has admirable qualities that are known to benefit the skin. Presented here are some facts about this versatile plant which has become a by word in cosmetic research.
Facial products primarily composed of a cosmetic-quality aloe vera gel are most beneficial to the skin. Properties that enable the aloe vera plant to withstand the desert climate are imparted to the skin, keeping it well hydrated. The whole plant product moisturises, is anti-inflammatory, refines fine lines, reduces pitting and scarring, promotes uplift and radiance. Aloe biogens have the unique ability to help skin renew itself. Working with the skin`s metabolism, they increase nutrient absorption and oxygen exchange. Aloe contains zinc, a powerful anti-viral agent; anti-oxidant substances, vitamins A and C, copper, selenium, magnesium; and polysaccharides, a group of molecules responsible for bringing renewed lustre to the skin. The secret to healthy, radiant skin, therefore, lies in:
- A healthy diet
- A well functioning colon
- Eight to 10 glasses of water each day
- Daily exfoliation and hydration
Follow this simple routine and watch your skin glow with good health and radiance!
