Continuing with the theme of do-it-yourself skincare from 2 weeks ago; today I will guide you to deeper levels for creating beautiful healthy skin.
Did you know that the health of your G.I. tract affects the quality of your skin? You have probably heard the word microbiome. That’s a word that describes the population of microorganisms in your gut. These microorganisms add up to greater numbers than there are known stars in the universe. Digestive tract problems from an unhealthy microbiome can cause sallow, dry or pimply skin. Stress and lack of sleep change your face and skin. When stressed your expression changes etching unattractive lines into your face that grow deeper and multiply with ongoing unrelenting stress. Sleep allows your body to relax and rejuvenate. When you’re not getting enough or if you have disturbed sleep over time you will start to look old and worn out. How much and what kind of exercise you do also affects the quality of your skin. Not only by increasing muscle tone but also by relieving stress and enhancing mood. Sweating during exercise cleans out your pores. In addition, exercise activates elimination and detoxification for a healthy glow. Hormones have an enormous effect on your skin appearance-whether too much or too little. Testosterone affects acne and deep wrinkles. Estrogen affects plumpness and fine lines. Progesterone can make your skin oily or on the good side tighten your pores. Facial exercises improve skin quality by strengthening the muscles underlying your skin. Working with an ancient system that includes mindfulness and Taoist wisdom may be more effective than simple muscle exercises you find on YouTube. Nutritional supplements can help too and applying nutrient dense skin care products makes a difference.
