There’s no question about it, skin is our biggest health asset. For one thing, it’s our body’s best defense against germs and viruses. Without it, our bodies would be open to all kinds of contaminants. And when our skin isn’t at it’s best health wise, our immune system goes into overdrive fighting off all the bad germs that managed to worm it’s way into our skin.
Even worse an over active immune system can attack various parts of the body unintentionally – this is called an autoimmune problem, and it is a characteristic of unhealthy living. An autoimmune disorder state, hurts your skin even more, which causes it to degrade, which causes the autoimmune problem to worsen, which damages your skin. Over and over this goes until you intervene and take control of your skin again. So, it’s super important to keep your skin in tip top shape to give our immune system much needed relaxation time.
Here are some ways to do it.
1. One of the best ways to fight off autoimmune difficulties, and by extension skin health problems, is by being generally fit and healthy. Exercising 15 minutes a day can give your body the edge it needs to keep all of its systems intact and running properly, managing your metabolism and all of the other body systems that surround it. If you work out even this much, we guarantee that your skin problems will start to resolve themselves. When you add this regimen to an anti-aging mask, like this one by Illumask, you have a sure recipe for success.
2. If you stay hydrated, you are also influencing your body to regulate all of its problems better. Your body is made of mostly water, so when you deprive it of the water it needs, there are going to be problems which predictably emerge. Drinking coffee and alcohol can cause dehydration as they cause your body to lose water faster than normal. So will a body that isn’t fit, which can’t efficiently harbour water well in its tissues. So if you want your skin to be healthier, add a litre or two of water to your anti ageing mask routine. An anti-aging mask it great, but unless you are placing it on a body that is fit and hydrated, an anti aging mask won’t be able to do its job.
3. Topical ointments like coconut oil can also help your anti-aging mask do its thing. Coconut oil is great for the skin.and leaves the skin surface healthy and hydrated, but not greasy. We’ve found it to be better than any other topical skin product. It’s a very healthy, unprocessed product, one your skin will surely love. It’s a little pricey, but it’s so useful, for culinary purposes as well as for your skin, that you will no doubt feel that it is worth the cost.
