Seven Simple Steps To Healthier Skin
Your skin is the body's largest organ, when healthy, its layers work hard to protect us. But when it's compromised, the skin' ability to work as an effective barrier is impaired. Here are seven ways to improve skin health to support it in maintaining its protective role.
We have said this before, and we will say it again, what you eat is just as important as the topical products you use. Your diet can significantly improve your skin health from the inside out.
Keep Your Skins Moisture Barrier Intact.
If you have tight, dry and sensitive chances are you may have damaged your moisture barrier. The skins moisture barrier keeps the top layer of skin cells hydrated and seal in moisture. When the skin's protective barrier gets damaged, it creates small, invisible cracks in the skin. Moisture can easily escape through these cracks and enables irritants can enter more easily.
Always sleep on a clean pillowcase.
You should be changing your pillowcases weekly. Your skin picks up dirt, bacteria, dead skin cells, saliva, etc. from a pillowcase that hasn't been washed so make sure halfway through the week flip your pillow over and wash it at the end of the week.
