Your Face is Your Fortune - Look After Your Skin
Your skin is a reflection of your inner health. When our skin looks good, we feel so much more
Sensibly, we keep our bodies covered and protect them from the elements, but our face is constantly
We may cover our hair with a scarf or hat, but the face is left to battle it out with the sun, the wind,
and the rain.
Is it any wonder that our faces are the first part of our bodies to show age? Faces that are left
unprotected in the heat of the day quickly show age. Drinking alcohol, smoking, and eating junk food
also shows in our faces in time. There are also general stresses and emotions that leave their marks on our face.
It is said that you may begin life with the face you were born with, but by the time you reach your
early forties you have the face you have earned.
The key to looking well and healthy is no longer a case of just splashing out on the best creams that
we can afford, but looking deeper at inner health through nutrition, exercise, natural massage creams
and oils, and skin protection.
Happiness contributes to beauty and makes your complexion glow, whilst unhappiness will ultimately
show in the expression lines of the face.
Protect Your Skin from Sun Damage
By now, most people have finally got the message that that whilst we love it, the sun is not good for
the skin. For my generation, coming from UK, sunshine was a luxury to be enjoyed as much as
possible but thankfully, the younger generation is well educated on sun protection.
The best way to protect the skin is to stay in the shade, especially between the hours of 11.00 a.m.
and 3.00 p.m. when the sun is at its most harmful. When the sun is hot and you have to be outside,
wear a hat. This provides the best protection for the face, neck, ears, and scalp. Sunscreens of SPF 15 should be used and move to SPF 30 to SPF 50 if you live or spend time in a hot climate.
Skin Care Creams: Are They The Magic Answer To Eternal Youth?
I am a great believer in moisturising the skin with natural products because nature provides everything
we need to improve the skin and keep it looking fresh and healthy.
It is all so easy for women to feel pressure to buy the most expensive of creams as the brand name and packaging provide a feel-good factor; but when you think rationally, going for natural ingredients that work with the skin, rather than applying chemically produced products that contain elements that you may never have heard of has to make sense.
At Arden Healthcare we believe in using natural ingredients. Nature is the best medicine cabinet and
provides long term solutions. See the Permea Plus Natural Skin care range at prices you can afford
Skin Care Pared Down
You can get by with a few basic necessities, and it is a good idea to get the following for your
- A gentle cleanser
- A gentle facial scrub to be used twice a week for removing any dry skin or blackheads (this is very important as if the surface of your skin is dry your moisturiser will not work ): try Permea Plus Gentle Almond Scrub
- A daily moisturiser – find one that suits your skin and feeds it, and can be used on the face and neck. Click here to see our beautiful natural products: Permea Plus Natural Skin care range
- Daily Sunscreen
- Night cream and oils – a good night cream or oil is recommended especially if you have air conditioning or central heating which dries out your skin as you sleep. At night our body does
much of its internal repair whilst we sleep. See our beautiful natural Night Repair Oils and Creams which feed and rejuvenate your skin while you sleep
- Don’t forget your hands. You can always tell someone’s age by looking at their hands. Try our most popular Frankincense and Rose Nourishing Hand Cream and see a real difference within a few days
Plump Out Your Skin With Water
Don’t let your body get dehydrated. Your body is made up of 70% water and needs you to drink 2
litres every day. Dehydration shows in your skin first.
Food Is Your Protection From Within
Your skin is one of the very last parts of your body to benefit from the food you eat, which is why a
poor diet will show first on your skin, but the best boost you can give to your skin is good nutrition
and by giving it a generous intake of nutrients including fresh fruit and vegetables. Eat 5 portions of
fruit and vegetables every day. Fruit and vegetables are great natural healers.
Make sure your skin is getting best quality vitamins, minerals and antioxidants by taking Permea
Plus. This is your body’s insurance policy.
The Permea Plus supplement contains everything that the skin needs and can be used as a daily
