Maintaining Healthy Glowing Skin

A healthy person is generally a happy person. Health is undeniably a great importance to each individual. There are many factors about how to take care of one’s health. An obvious indicator of a healthy body is having a healthy glowing skin.

The largest human organ, the skin, makes up about fifteen percent of the body weight. The skin acts as a barrier against harsh environment like extreme temperature, damaging sunlight, unhealthy chemicals etc. However, the skin is sensitive and needs to be taken care of. Dirt, dust, sweat, and pollution are some of the environmental factors that trigger and threaten our skin health. Aside from that, we, humans are harsh on our skin. Applying makeup, cosmetics, and other beauty products on our skin, almost on a regular basis, without proper treatments, makes our skin severely damaged.

When a person meets another person, they first see their physical appearance. One of the most evident things to see to know if a person is healthy is to have a healthy glowing skin. A healthy glowing skin means having a positive radiant appearance of the skin. There are various ways in maintaining healthy glowing skin.  The simplest factor to keep your skin healthy and glowing is water. Water composes about fifty to sixty-five percent of the body. It is a key element in making and staying the skin healthy. A healthy skin is a hydrated skin. Doctors’ claim that we need to drink at least eight glasses a day but that is not accurate. Our body has this innate instinct on specific things. We need to drink when our body is thirsty and not limit to just eight glasses a day. We need to drink as much as at least half of our body weight in fluid ounces. This means that if a person weighs about a hundred and twenty pounds, he/she must drink at least sixty fluid ounces of water.

Taking care of one’s body is no easy task. It requires dedication and discipline. However, having a healthy glowing skin is surely a blessing. The general way of maintaining a healthy glowing skin is by being healthy inside-out. If the body is healthy to the core, then this will spread all throughout its members. Being healthy in general will make not just make your skin healthy but will also make you and your body continue to be happy and glowing.

Natural Skin Care Treatments

Here are some causes of dry skin:

Medication Side Effects

As a society, we have increasingly become dependent on medication for things like high blood pressure, tension headaches, and even depression. Skin care treatment for dryness may very well be necessary due to some side effect of your medication for a completely unrelated condition. For this reason, you always want to monitor any potential skin irritation immediately after starting any new medication. If you already have dry skin and can’t remember whether or not it was a problem before starting your medication, you may need to consult with your physician and discuss an alternative medication in order to rule out side effects as the cause of your dry skin.

Poor Nutrition

Skin care problems are often the result of poor nutrition. Our bodies require a delicate balance of nutrients in order to keep everything functioning properly, especially the skin. Vegetarians and vegans often run into dry skin issues as a result of not consuming enough animal fats in their diet. A vitamin B12 deficiency will cause your oil glands (sebaceous glands) to function improperly, generally leading to acne.
