5 Ways to have a good skin care and beauty regime and delay ageing

Listed below are 5 reasons why it’s important to have a good skin care and beauty regime so you can delay ageing. If you want to stay looking young and feeling fit for as long as possible, and keep anti ageing at bay, then it’s vital that you read the 5 reason why. Watch out too for dangerous substances that can be found in some slick, chic beauty and cosmetic products. They can do more harm than good in terms of your health AND also age you faster. Obviously the brands don’t tell us that! Oh and by the way, these tips are useful for men and women.


1. Know your skin type

It’s very important to know your skin type because not every skin care product suits everyone. Using the wrong beauty care products on your skin can cause unpleasant reactions – allergies, redness, spots, dryness etc.  To get dramatic, it’s almost as comparable to poisoning your skin or taking medication meant for a common cold when you actually have a different illness.

2. Make a habit of drinking water every day

To maintain healthy skin at all times you need to drink plenty of water every day. Doctors recommend 8-10 glasses. Water not only keeps your skin moist but it flushes toxic substances out of your system.

3. Cleanse your skin with warm water regularly

Your skin has a small amount of sticky oil (serebum) on it. When you venture outdoors your skin naturally collects dust and other toxic substances from the air. To keep your skin healthy you need to cleanse it with warm water at least twice a day. Remember, very cold or hot water is harmful to your skin.

4. Use skin care products carefully

You need to treat your skin gently, respectfully and with love. Don’t over apply skin care or beauty products. The rule is always – less is more! Too much of anything is always bad for your health. Don’t scrub too hard otherwise you will lose your skin’s glow/radiance.

5. Avoid skin care and beauty products that contain toxic substances

Some skin and beauty care products contain toxins that are dangerous to your health. Your skin is the body’s largest organ. It is porous and therefore allows anything applied on it to enter into your bloodstream. Within 26 seconds of a product being applied to the skin it can be found within every organ in your body.

Have you ever wondered where your lipstick goes after you have applied it? Well most of it is absorbed into your bloodstream via your porous skin or eaten. Statistics vary on the amount – anything from 2 lipsticks per year to 6lbs in a lifetime!

Some toxins found in skin care and beauty products include; lead, 1,4-dioxane, formaldehyde, synthetic parabens, mineral oil, petroleum, paraffin, propylene glycol, PABA and DEA.  Any product that contains these chemicals should be avoided. They cause a whole range of problems including cancer (tumours), reproductive complications, fertility issues, genetic mutations, eye irritations , contact dermatitis, dry, red, sore skin. Always read the labels carefully before using any beauty and or cosmetic product, and be aware, that not all disclose their ingredients.
