Some vitamins serve to nourish and protect our skin. One of these skin protecting vitamins is Vitamin E! Vitamin E has been used and recommended for more than 50 years.
Unhealthy sun exposure and natural aging reduce the Vitamin E levels in our skin and in our bodies. We can get our vitamin sources from natural food sources, and from vitamin supplements. Various skin care products also contain Vitamin E which helps increase the Vitamin E needed by our skin to make the skin healthier.
While we cannot necessarily avoid all signs of aging that show on our skin, we can definitely be proactive at slowing signs of aging down.
There are natural and simple skincare remedies we can do on our own to grow old gracefully and naturally. Especially if one does not want to go under the knife or needle or undergo laser treatments.
Regardless of how young or old you are, take good care of the skin around the eye area as it is the most delicate skin on the body. It is ten times thinner than any skin area of the face. It is also one of the most exposed areas, allowing us to see the world around us!
The skin around the eye area is the first to show signs of aging like crow’s feet and fine lines. It is further subjected to sagging, swelling, and darkening when highly exposed to the sun and not properly cared for.
Oil in your skin does not necessarily mean you have oily skin. In fact, it could mean the opposite! It could mean that you have dehydrated skin! Oily skin does not necessarily equate a well hydrated or overly moisturized complexion either.
Discover the telltale signs that you may have oily, dehydrated skin and the proper skincare remedies to control it!
The “sweet root” is what they call Glycyrrhiza Glabra or the licorice plant. Its roots have been used as a traditional and herbal medicine, and food flavoring for more than 4,000 years. It has a component that is far sweeter than sucrose.
Licorice roots have been used by many cultures as medicine for a long list of illnesses, as sweetener in food, tea, and also used as an essential ingredient in many other products like tobacco. It is the subject of countless and continuous studies because of the many benefits it provides, including what it offers to the skincare world!
We have all used some type of moisturizer at one time or another, whether as a cosmetic or a dermatological treatment. A moisturizer, after all, is the most prescribed dermatological product that aims to hydrate the skin and protect from dryness that causes irritations and skin aging.
Humectants are a type of moisturizer. Moisturizers hydrate the skin to prevent dryness. The other types of moisturizers are emollients, occlusives and protein rejuvenators.
