Nutrients, Protection and Renewal

  1. The 3 pillars of an effective skin care routine is: nutrients, protection and renewal. How you can best do this depends entirely on your skin type, skin problems and also your lifestyle. No body and no skin is the same and this should certainly be taken into account. For example, my skin is prone to pimples and I should definitely NOT use greasy ointment, but with someone else this is essential to combat dryness.

  1. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it is good to think about this for a moment, because when we think of organs, we initially think of your heart, kidneys or maybe your lungs, but not our skin! What's important to understand is that in the human body everything is connected and interdependent.

What is important to understand is that in the human body everything is connected and dependent on each other.

  1. In other words, you also have to take good care of your body if you want to have healthy, beautiful skin. Even if you use the most expensive products and go to a beautician regularly, how can you expect to have beautiful skin when you smoke, drink a lot of alcohol or don't pay close attention to your diet?

  1. Nutrient intake is certainly a big part of the skincare puzzle, but also be aware that the sun is the number 1 enemy when it comes to wrinkles and aging. In normal amounts, sunlight is good for the skin, but too much is extremely harmful and can have far-reaching consequences. The same goes for protecting your skin with an effective skincare routine that I'll be talking about in a moment.

  1. This means that our skin certainly has the ability to recover, even from occasionally falling back into old (unhealthy) habits or getting sunburnt once. Or a reaction to wrong skin care products (often experienced myself). Especially then it's good to go back to basics and realize that you don't have to do it perfectly.

  1. I am a big supporter of the 80/20 rule where you mainly focus on the top 20% for 80% of the result, what this 20% is I will now share with you through some helpful tips!

Tip 1: Nutrition for beautiful skin

  1. A healthy, fresh and varied diet brings HUGE health benefits, I can talk about this for days and in this article I will only focus on nutrition and your skin. The most important vitamins for your skin are vitamins A, C and E and various antioxidants that you naturally find in vegetables, fruit and even in dark 70+ chocolate (be careful with skin complaints).

The most important vitamins for your skin are vitamins A, C and E and various antioxidants that you will naturally find in vegetables, fruit and even in dark 70+ chocolate (be careful with skin complaints).

  1.  € ˜â € ™ Side note: Now I am not in favor of taking supplements when there is no shortage, I will not advise you in supplements because it must first be checked whether you have a have a shortage. In addition, you should always be careful with supplements to the fat-soluble vitamins (ADEK) â € ™ â € ™.

 Nutrition with vitamin A:

  1. If you want to eat something else, check the packaging to see if it is in it.

  1. It is valuable to complement your green smoothie with a handful of carrots, squash, etc. Remember that variety is the key to success.

 Food with vitamin C:

  1. Would you like something else to eat? Then check the packaging to see if it contains vitamin C.

  1. Vitamin C is necessary as it aids in the production of collagen, which is essential for keeping the skin young. It is also a powerful antioxidant and also an important support for the absorption of iron, for example.

  1. Now in the Netherlands, a shortage of vitamin C is not likely to occur. However, do not underestimate the damage of free radicals on the skin - for example, too much sunlight damages the skin and therefore has your body needs antioxidants to limit damage and reduce free radicals, this is called the free radical theory and it even appears to be the cause of aging.

  1. Now you can't stop free radicals completely - it's part of life. But you can minimize them by improving your diet and getting enough antioxidants. Using antioxidant skin care products is also a valuable strategy.

 Vitamin E:

  1. Would you like something else to eat? Then check the packaging to see if it contains vitamin E.

  1. Both vitamin C and E have a double effect because they are both vitamins AND antioxidants. The trick is to get enough antioxidants from other sources in addition to vitamins.

  1. My personal favorites are:

  1. But red wine is also full of antioxidants. However, I do not drink alcohol myself because of its effect on my skin condition. You will have to test this and of course in moderation :)

Tip 2: Protect your skin from the sun

  1. The sun is a star with advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand, it ensures that you produce vitamin D, on the other hand, you get skin damage if you get too much sunlight.

  1. So protect your skin from the sun by applying sunscreen to yourself. Make sure that the cream protects against both UVA and UVB radiation. Both forms of ultraviolet light are harmful to the skin.

  1. Wear a hat with a wide brim. The wide brim acts like a parasol so that your face and (possibly) your shoulders are not exposed to too much sunlight.

  1. Also stay in the shade as much as possible, sit in the shade of a tree when you go to the park to have a barbecue or buy a parasol so you can sit in the shade.

  1. Eating tomatoes also helps you against the UV rays of the sun. The lycopene in the tomatoes allows your body to protect itself from the sun from within. Eating tomatoes alone is not enough, you should also follow all the previous advice from tip 2 to optimally protect yourself against the sun.

Tip 3: Sports

  1. By exercising you increase the blood circulation in your body. At the beginning the circulation in your skin is also improved and with endurance sports this decreases after a while to keep your body structure up to date, but after exercise your blood returns to your skin to cool your body. Through these blood movements you ensure that the smallest blood vessels in your skin remain and the transport function of the blood in your skin improves.

  1. Good blood circulation is therefore important to bring protective anti-oxidants to the skin and to have a healthy tone. That's why exercising is a good idea for your skin.

  1. By exercising you often replace fat with muscle mass, if you suffer from cellucite this can be reduced because you have less fat in which cellulite can take place.

  1. Beware of sweating. If you sweat and don't shower after exercise, you can get small bumps on your skin. It's not serious, but it's less beautiful. So keep an eye on your hygiene after exercise.

Tip 4: Steam bath

  1. A steam bath was already used by the ancient Greeks and is done with a temperature of 43 degrees Celsius. The temperature and steam help against acne and improve blood circulation.

  1. The steam causes the pores in the skin to open so that a skin mask or nourishing cream can do its job even better. Be careful, some creams can cause an allergic reaction. So you should only do this with known ointments and creams.

Tip 5: Correct bedding

  1. You wake up and see in the mirror that the pillow has left a nice mark on your face. That's the first clear sign that bedding is affecting your skin. Depending on your position, your face and the rest of your body are in contact with your bedding all the time while you sleep.

  1. It is important that your bedding breathes so that your sweat does not stick to your body, you can get the same bumps as those from sweat during sports.

  1. Â So always buy cotton, linen or silk bedding.

Tip 6: Enough sleep

  1. A nice combination with the good bedding is enough sleep. If you sleep too little, the blood circulation in your skin decreases and you look pale and pissed off. In addition, you rub your eyes more often which gives you bags under the eyes and that doesn't help either.

  1. While sleeping, your skin renews itself and all kinds of hormonal and metabolic processes take place. You need it for healthy skin. If you sleep too little, these processes are blocked and cannot be performed optimally. Therefore, sleep at least 8 hours a night.

Tip 7: Be careful with too much sugar

  1. Delicious such a bar of milk chocolate, but the next day you will see new pimples or other skin complaints. This is because milk chocolate contains a lot of sugar.

  1. The sugar causes your blood sugar to rise and your body has to produce more insulin. The result is an inflammatory reaction throughout your body. That inflammation must be cleared up and the waste comes out of your skin with pimples. In addition, enzymes are created that reduce the production of collagen and elastin, so that you get wrinkles faster.

  1. So stick to fruit for snacking and replace the milk chocolate with at least 70% dark chocolate.

Tip 8: Be careful with too much salt

  1. Salt needs your body, but too much salt is not good for you. If you eat too much salt, it has an impact on your immune system and also on your skin. This can cause inflammation again with all the pimples, dry skin and other consequences.

  1. Too much salt also creates cellulite.

Tip 9: Strength training

  1. Strength training is a good way to lower your cholesterol. Scientific research shows that if you do strength training for four months, you as a woman already have almost 17 percent less LDL cholesterol. This effect is comparable in men, namely a decrease of 16 percent.

  1. Cholesterol is bad for your blood flow, making your skin look beautiful, and triggers reactions in the body that are similar to inflammation. As a result, you can suffer more from skin problems than usual.

Tip 10: Skincare for the morning

  1. You can start your morning routine with exfoliation of the skin. That's the way to wake up your skin in the morning. You can remove all unnecessary dead skin cells that were replaced during the night from your face.

  1. Â With dry or sensitive skin it is better to exfoliate once a week.

  1. Then clean your face with a toner and then apply a nourishing and moisturizing cream. A bright day can begin.

Tip 11: Skin care for the evening

  1. At night, the skin repairs the damage it has sustained during the day. To take full advantage of this, it is important to clean your face with a tonic before going to sleep. This removes dirt from the air that has remained on your face in addition to make-up.

  1. You can see this by a kind of green yellowish stain and tiny hairs that are left on the cotton pad. That's actually dust that fell on your face.

  1. After cleansing, apply a nourishing cream that supports your skin in its recovery.

Tip 12: Coconut oil

  1. There are important fats and acids in coconut oil that provide hydration and a smooth skin. Coconut oil therefore also helps against wounds and has a disinfecting effect.

  1. In addition, the coconut oil also contains vitamin E, which is good for your skin when you apply it or eat it.

  1. That's why coconut oil is also a good base for cooking. Coconut oil is thus nourishing in the external way and nutrient. It fits two pillars.

  1. Coconut oil also has the good property that you can heat it to high temperatures. This is therefore better than olive oil that does not have such a high evaporation temperature. As a result, the fats do not turn into trans fats and this is a good basis for your stir-fry meal.

Tip 13: Special attention to skin disorders

  1. If you suffer from a skin condition such as acne, rosacea, eczema or psoriasis, you sometimes have to take extra steps that people without these complaints do not have to take. That is why it is wise to give your skin extra attention. If you have acne, you can also use petroleum jelly and toothpaste.

  1. Rosacea is also a skin condition that needs extra attention. You should pay particular attention to temperature changes and try to find an activity that makes you move, but not sweat intensively.

  1. Eczema can occur in many places on the body. This is very annoying and those spots also need special treatment. In addition to coconut oil, you can also use Aloe Vera cream for this.

  1. Psoriasis is probably the most troublesome skin disease to deal with. The overgrowth of skin is difficult to stop and causes annoying complaints such as itching and painful spots. You can try to reduce itching with menthol cream.

 Tip 14: Control stress

  1. Research has shown that if you experience psychological stress, the skin function for protection against bacteria decreases with all its consequences. Your skin ages faster and you have a higher risk of bacterial inflammation.

  1. That's why it's important to manage stress. In any case, you can meditate to reduce stress. This can also be done at work. You then close your eyes and take a deep breath. In the meantime, you try to let your thoughts flow away. Do this for twenty calm breaths. Then you have already taken the first step towards less stress.

Tip 15: Spray against drought

  1. Especially in summer and when it is freezing in winter, a spray against dry skin is a good idea. If your skin starts to pull, you can use the spray to regain your moisture balance. There are several companies that have a spray in a handy container. Then you can take it with you during the day, whether at work or during a day of shopping.

Tip 16: Skincare products that work

  1. Okay, this might sound a bit strange, because of course you have to use skin care products that work. Unfortunately not everything that comes in a jar with a promising text on it works.

  1. It is important to have vitamins C, A and E in the cream, as they protect your body from the outside against antioxidants. You can also use a serum for this. This often also enhances the effect of the day cream.

  1. Avoid creams with perfume in them. This is an unnecessary substance that also makes the cream aggressive.

  1. Also a cream with protection against UV radiation, often recognizable by an spf factor, is a good addition.

  1. In addition, every skin is different and you sometimes have to test several products before you find the right one.

Tip 17: Skincare oily skin

  1. If you suffer from oily skin it is extra important to cleanse your skin in the morning and in the evening so that you have less oil on your skin. As a result, you also suffer from acne less quickly. Be careful with the cleansing agent, if it is too strong it can irritate the skin and cause extra production of sebum.

  1. Also occasionally use a nourishing mask, such as a mask with a dead sea base. You can get these pretty cheaply at the drugstore.

  1. Oily skin often reacts to hormones and even the weather. Find out for yourself how your skin reacts to changes and adjust your care accordingly.

Tip 18: Skincare men

  1. Men have a very different skin than women, that you as a man have to shave is already proven for this. Especially the place where there is growth of beard and a razor is applied daily is sensitive in men. Because men are hairier anyway, there is also more room for bacteria to grow.

  1. In addition, men have more pigment and collagen in the skin than women, so that men age more beautifully, while facial hair often disguises signs of aging. Because men's skin is different, they also need different care. So other creams and other cleansers.

  1. So buy products especially for men.

Tip 19: Skin care against wrinkles

  1. Wrinkles are part of aging and are therefore difficult to combat, but there are factors that you can influence that cause you to age â € ˜slowerâ € ™. The sun, for example, is a major factor in skin aging. The sun releases many free radicals into your body which negatively influence the aging process. By using sunscreen with at least a factor of 15 you can do a lot against this and fight wrinkles.

  1. Smoking also makes you more likely to wrinkle. SO STOP SMOKING, if you still do.

  1. As you get older your skin also produces less and less collagen. That is why it is important to use a good moisturizing cream. It is therefore quite normal to switch to a new cream that provides more moisture after a few years.

Tip 20: Green smoothies

  1. I am now completely addicted to green smoothies. You get energy from it and if you do it right also a lot of anti-oxidants. These are important for good skin. These namely tackle the free radicals that cause skin aging. Moreover, all vitamins and minerals give you more substances that can pamper your skin from within.

Tip 21: Superfoods

  1. Superfoods are also packed with vitamins and minerals that provide your body with important nutrients. Your skin also benefits from this. Especially in combination with all previous tips.

  1. Superfoods include:

Finally

  1. The three pillars are a good guideline to set yourself up for getting and maintaining beautiful skin. These ten tips will go a long way towards beautiful skin. Nutrition, exercise and rest in a regular balance for your skin.
