This is an intriguing thought: about a billion tons of dust in the atmosphere is composed of…dead skin cells. From you. From me. From your neighbour, your coworker, and everyone else alive. That weight is equivalent to about 2,740 Empire State Buildings stacked up. Which raises another interesting fact: your body loses about 50,000 dead skin cells every minute.
But enough dermatological trivia. Let’s use these striking facts to segue into the topic of this piece: a breakdown of 8 surprising ways to make your skin look younger for years into the future. Your skin is bombarded by harmful, toxic chemicals (it’s becoming an increasingly well-known and increasingly alarming fact that even something as “innocent” as typical lash glue is jam-packed with toxic chemicals), so taking active measures to keep your skin healthy and radiant is of considerable importance. Here’s what you can do.
Wear all-natural, formaldehyde free makeup and eyelash adhesives. Seriously. Ditch the harmful make up that’s steadily “crinkling” your skin. Did you know, for example, that your eyelids have the thinnest skin on your body? Because of this, they are especially susceptible to damage from caustic chemicals in many lash glues. Switch up your lash glue and makeup – replace them with all-natural alternatives that are completely and utterly formaldehyde free.
Wear SPF every day. Yes, the sun burns into unprotected skin and causes it to age faster. Wear good, safe, natural sunscreen to shield your skin and preserve its youthfulness.
Exercise regularly. Don’t cheat on your exercise schedule! Exercising improves blood circulation, which clears away dead skin cells and rejuvenates your skin tissue with a steady supply of oxygen and nutrients.
Wash your face daily. Use all-natural facial moisturizers and cleansers to scrub away pollution, dirt, chemicals, oils, and pollen. Do this in the morning and at night.
Quit smoking. Smoking cooks away antioxidants and oxygen that your skin badly needs. Smoking thus contributes to rapid skin aging.
Eat about 5 servings of vegetables and fruits every day. This will pump health-giving nutrients to your skin tissue.
Get enough sleep! This is super-important, but often overlooked. Sleeping for about 7 – 8 hours a night weeds away stress and reinvigorates your skin, leaving you with a healthy morning glow.
Supplement with probiotics. There is increasing scientific evidence that the “good” bacteria in your body are largely responsible for healthy skin. Supplement with probiotics to take full advantage of the health benefits of these tiny creatures.
Healthy, radiant skin can be yours. Collectively, all of these tips will work together in your body’s favor to give your skin a youthful, fresh look. The key here is to turn your efforts into a habit, so you can consistently improve your skin without giving it a second thought. And that is why those of us at True Glue are inspired – every day – to let the world know about the brand new lash adhesive that’s perfectly natural, formaldehyde free, and plumped with health-giving, botanical ingredients.
