February is the month of love and a perfect time to show your skin the love it deserves.
Do you know how amazing your skin is? First off, it is the largest organ in your body and has many different functions. Just a few of these include:
- A barrier that protects your body from harmful things in the outside world. Think moisture, cold, sun rays, germs and a multitude of toxins.
- An indicator of age and health. Changes in skin color or structure are often a sign of an underlying medical condition.
- A regulator of body temperature. Your skin helps prevent dehydration and protects you from the negative effects of too much heat or cold (think putting your hand on a hot stove)
These things alone are more than reason enough to show love your skin. How?
HYDRATION - vital to the proper functioning and healthy appearance of your skin.
SUN PROTECTION - you’ve heard it here before, protect your skin from those harmful solar rays. ALL YEAR - Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.
SLEEP - probably the closest thing we have to the fountain of youth. Your body repairs itself and recovers while you snooze and that leads to a long list of benefits for your looks. 7-9 hours a night!
MODERATION - booze, unfortunately, dehydrates your skin and in excess is a toxin. Excess alcohol alters blood flow to the skin and leaves an unhealthy appearance for days. Why? Alcohol causes small blood vessels in the skin to widen, allowing more blood to flow close to the surface. This produces a flushed color and a feeling of warmth, which can lead to broken capillaries on the face.
