Octobers Healthy Habits

Welcome to October and healthy habits.

USE SUN PROTECTION.

This should be used everyday to protect skin and help with complexion, protecting from harmful rays that may cause skin cancer. UV rays heat the skin, causing it to make changes to protect itself that damage it irreversibly. If you have a paler complexion, this is even more serious as your skin isn’t designed to tolerate high levels of sun and UV. UV is one of the worst causes of skin damage, fine lines and wrinkles. It is also important to use sunscreen after intensive exfoliating treatments like microdermabrasion to prevent damage to fresh new skin.

EXFOLIATE

There’s only one effective way to get rid of dead skin cells and that’s to slough them away. As we age, our skins ability to renew itself slows down and so exfoliating will help the body to produce new skin. The benefits are: will help absorption of skincare products. Great pre-tan prep. Tan clings to dry patches.   Make up will look more even, for a smooth and flawless finish. It will minimise pores. Exfoliation will help pores appear smaller. Dirt and grime clogging pores is part of what makes them look more pronounced.
Exfoliation is also important for the body. Dry brushing before you shower will also get blood pumping, stimulating the micro circulation. Once In shower, use a salt/sugar scrub in circular motions.

EXERCISE 3 TIMES A WEEK.

Exercise helps to stimulate circulation, increased blood flow which improves supply of oxygen and nutrients to skin cells and effective removal of waste products. Keeping our complexion looking healthy and youthful. Exercise is a great way to combat stress releasing endorphin’s. Stress is a known trigger for skin problems such as acne, eczema, rosacea and psoriasis. Working to remove stress will help ease these conditions.

RELAX.

Easy?  Well no. We know it’s as simple as just saying it. When stressed ,we release stress hormones which can trigger spot outbreaks and make skin more sensitive and reactive. Stress can also be a contributing factor for a whole host of other ailments that can leave you not feeling or performing at your best
Put everything aside. And just give yourself a few minutes peace. Take some deep breaths. Deep breathing sends a message to the brain to calm and relax.

SMILE AND LAUGH.

Using muscles in face to smile rather than frown, will at least mean that wrinkles we do get will be a result of smiling more!! A friendly smiling face will attract more smiles from other people making you feel good in return. Your body will release endorphin’s when smile and laugh.

This month I’m doing BOGOF on a 30 minute back and neck massage. So why not treat yourself to a “bit of me time”.
