Health benefits – About health and the widely held beliefs

Did you miss this yesterday ?

 

Story at-a-glance

Some of the most widely held “beliefs” about proper skin care are actually myths, such as the idea that all sun exposure and tanning must be avoided, or it’s preferable to use sunless tanning lotions than go out in the sun
Many also mistakenly believe that skin care products on the market are safe, when in reality many contain chemicals that have never been tested for safety, along with those linked to cancer and hormone disruption
In order to have clear, healthy skin, you need to make sure your body is relatively free of toxins and full of nutrients, so cleansing your body of dangerous substances while eating the healthiest foods is essential

Your skin is your largest organ, and far from being just a passive “covering” on your body, your skin is a complex system made up of nerves, glands and cell layers that play an intricate role in your health.             

In fact, healthy skin not only serves as a buffer that helps protect your body from extreme temperatures and chemicals, it also produces antibacterial substances to protect you from infection and enables your body to produce vitamin D when exposed to the sun. It is also densely packed with nerve cells that act as messengers to your brain, making your skin a crucial part of your interactions with the world around you.

Obviously, for these reasons taking good care of your skin is of crucial importance, and will also help your skin appearance to stay soft, supple and glowing, rather than prematurely wrinkled or rough.

Getting safe sun exposure every day is actually one of the best actions you can take for your health, as this is how your body produces enough essential vitamin D, which is known to protect against cancer (including melanoma) and support your immune system, cardiovascular system, kidney function, bones and teeth, muscle strength and much more.

While excessive sun exposure, such as getting sunburned, can certainly damage your skin, sensible sun exposure is not only quite healthy, it’s a fundamental step in reaching optimal health.

The skin around your eyes and your face is typically much thinner than other areas on your body and is a relatively small surface area so will not contribute much to vitamin D production.
So it is strongly recommended that you protect this fragile area of your body, as it is at a much higher risk for cosmetic photo damage and premature wrinkling.
You can use a safe sunblock in this area or wear a cap that always keeps your eyes in the shade.

Top Dietary Tips for Healthy Skin at Any Age

Ideally, your skin care regimen should include steps to address your skin health from the inside out, as well as from the outside in.
The first step should be addressing your diet, as one of the most profoundly effective ways to create the most attractive glow for your skin is by consuming vegetables and fruits that are high in carotenoids.
Carotenoids give red, orange and yellow fruits their color, and also occur in green vegetables.
Studies have shownthat eating foods with these deeply colored pigments can make your face actually look healthier than being tanned.
The more red and yellow tones found in your skin, the more attractive the people were found to be.
The redder tones are caused when people are flushed with blood, particularly if the blood has lots of oxygen in it. Researchers found that, given the choice between skin color caused by suntan and skin color caused by carotenoids, people preferred the carotenoid skin color, so if you want a healthier and more attractive skin color, you are better off eating a healthy diet.

In order to have clear, healthy skin, you need to make sure your body is relatively free of toxins, so cleansing your body of dangerous substances while putting in the finest nutrients is essential.

The organs responsible for providing you with beautiful skin include your liver, kidneys, adrenals, thyroid, and your large and small intestines.

Your liver and kidneys are the two organs that filter out impurities on an ongoing basis.

If your diet is less than ideal, these two organs can easily become overtaxed, which can lead to breakouts and other skin problems.
Your adrenals make many essential hormones, such as pregnenolone, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.

Hormonal imbalances can also result in problematic skin conditions, so adrenal function is important as well.
A well-nourished, energetic thyroid also provides hormones and works closely with your adrenals to create energy. Dry, flaky, sluggish skin can be evidence of a weak thyroid.
Your small- and large intestines provide nutrients to all your organs and remove waste products from your body.

When waste meant for elimination remains in your intestines your skin becomes thick, oily and blemished. Pure, flawless skin is typically a reflection of clean intestines.     Exerpts from Dr Mercola 26/12/12
