Think about if you went months without ever brushing your teeth. You can imagine that your teeth would not only degenerate from neglect, but their breakdown would begin to affect the rest of your body’s health as well. Your skin isn’t much different. The right approach to skin care can not only make a big impact on your appearance, but it can also play an important role in your overall health. Learn why good skincare helps maintain youth.
Why good skincare helps maintain youth
A study found that a lot more factors go into determining age than how long you’ve been alive. Everyone enjoys looking their very best. As you age, your skin cells regenerate less frequently, which means that skin can start to show signs of aging and lose radiance. A high-quality skincare routine helps promote clear and glowing skin. When you properly care for your skin, you remove dead skin cells that regenerate into new cells. Skin invariably loses elasticity and strength as you grow older.
If you want to preserve the health and appearance of your skin, a simple, everyday regimen will slow down aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and preserving the health of your skin—which is the largest organ of your body.
Prevent future problems
Taking preventative measures with a skincare routine is essential to long-term skin health. By taking proper care of your skin, you can avoid the development of certain conditions and signs of aging and even reduce the severity of problems you’re currently dealing with.
Early wrinkles or years of sun damage can result in thick, older-looking skin. The most proven way to look younger is to avoid the sun. Exposure to UV rays is the primary reason for skin aging. Repeated tanning leads to early wrinkles, dark age spots, and even skin cancer—as UV rays speed up the aging process of your cells. Smoking also causes damage to your skin’s collagen and elastin, weakening the skin and resulting in sagging. Proper skin care can restore firmness and even out the texture of the skin.
Keep internal systems healthy
Your skin acts as a barrier for your internal systems that are imperative to your health. Taking the right steps to care for your shield of armor will ensure this important barrier stays strong. When your skin is dry or irritated, cracks can occur, making you more prone to infections. If you’re not balancing the pH microbiome on your face through proper skin care, you could cause unwanted problems.
The skin provides a barrier to protect your body from invasive bacteria and other environmental hazards that can be dangerous to your health. Skin not only protects your body from the outside elements but finds ways to alert you when something is awry inside of your body. For instance, when liver function is impaired, the liver will push toxins through the skin, causing dark spots or rashes. Jaundice yellowed skin is another sign that the liver is not functioning properly. If someone is suffering from diabetes, they might experience hyperpigmentation. If your skin isn’t being cared for every day, bacteria and germs are more likely to infect, and immunity may be compromised.
Your skin contains nerve endings that alert you when something is hot or sharp, sweat glands and blood vessels help control your body temperature, and the cells in your skin turn proper amounts of sunlight into vitamin D, which helps your bones stay healthy.
