Why Skin Care Is as Important as Keeping Fit

More people than ever are realising how important it is to eat healthily and keep fit. Anyone that wants to stay fit has many options from joining the gym, taking classes of various sorts or taking up running or walking. Really, the choice often comes down to lifestyle and what will fit in between work and home responsibilities. Most people will look and feel better if they take up some sort of fitness regime, but what they do not always realise is that skin care is as important as keeping fit.

Why is Looking After Your Skin Important?

Your skin is the largest organ in your body and performs essential tasks for healthy living.  Well looked after skin helps with the production of vitamin D when exposed to the sun.  It also protects you against exposure to bacteria and viruses that you may be exposed to in your profession as well as normal day to day life.  Whilst regular exercise can help stave off colds and viruses, you want to ensure that you are doing everything you can alongside exercising to stay healthy.

How Can You Keep Your Looking Good?

None of us like the wrinkles that come with age, or the damage that can be done to our skin by the sun or pollution. There are lots of creams and lotions you can buy on the shelf of most chemists and supermarkets, but skin care is like many other things in life, one solution does not suit everyone.

The best option is personalised skincare.  It only takes a few details about your skin and what you are aiming for to have a product tailor made just for you. For instance, is your skin very fair, fair, olive or dark?  Do you have very sensitive skin, very resilient skin or somewhere in between? Is your skin oily, dry or a combination of both? Are you trying to protect or rejuvenate your skin, and finally would you like it scented with lemon & rosemary, lavender & chamomile or left unscented?

These are all very simple questions that can lead to a product that will suit your skin perfectly and you will use forever more.

The Advantages Of Vitamin C

Most people know that vitamin C will help to stave off colds and infections, but did you know it also has antioxidants that can help your skin to keep looking good? Oranges are one of the best forms of digesting enough of this vitamin as they contain more than 100% of our daily needs of vitamin C, as well as a lot of other things that are good for us.  It might be an idea to invest in a juicer so that you can have freshly squeezed orange juice as often as you like.

It need not be expensive to stay fit, healthy and have good skin care. It just takes a bit of forethought and planning, making sure you are using the best regimes and products for you.
