Benefits of taking a proactive skin care approach

Natural Skin Care Products by Wildcrafted Herbal Products


Taking a proactive skin care approach to maintain rather than regain the health of your skin is the only way to approach skin care and insure the long term health of your skin. It is easy to think "my skin looks fine, I'll worry about it when I am older", but that is not a sound way to view the health of your skin. Remember that your skin is not just a cover for your 'insides', it is part of your immune system, performs a vital function in regulating body temperature and helps to eliminate toxins from your body.

Proactive Skin Care Approach



Why You Should Take A Proactive Skin Care Approach

A proactive skin care approach is where you adopt a skin care regime to prevent premature aging of your skin before it starts, rather than having to 'fix' problems later. In addition you will maintain the health and functionality of your skin and that has to be worthy of consideration.

If you think about it, why should you treat your skin any different from some other valuable asset like your car? Why do you get the car serviced? It is just because you want to spend some money, or is it because you need it and do not want expensive repair bills?

A proactive skin care approach is no different and investing in the health of your skin is the same as investing in health insurance, care maintenance, house insurance, etc. We brush our teeth several times as day, why? - Not because they have holes in them, but we want to prevent the holes and avoid expensive trips to the dentist...

Generally, we take our skin very much for granted and spend little time thinking about it. Maybe because of the many Skin Cancer Ad Campaigns, we will apply sunscreen lotion when going outside, but beyond that, we don't seem to spend much time looking after our skin until something goes wrong. Often skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis and other skin problems could have been prevented by adopting a proactive skin care approach and making use of a good skin care regime before any problems developed.

Similarly, a proactive skin care approach takes the quality of skin care products into consideration, however, to often we buy skin care by smell and how good the packaging looks. Neither of which guarantees a quality product. On the contrary, often the expensive, good looking products contain artificial perfumes, synthetic essential oils, chemical emollients, preservatives, and many other ingredients that have been shown to be toxic if used over a long period of time. These ingredients have no place in quality skin care products.

Natural skin care products are the only way to approach your skin care regime. Natural products, not just natural ingredients that have been added to an otherwise non-natural base, are a great way to take a proactive step towards promoting and maintaining healthy skin.

In addition to taking a proactive skin care approach you should also consider doing the same with your diet. Foods that can benefit the skin will also benefit other parts of your body and promote healthy body tissues. Eating foods that have not been highly processed, such as fresh fruits and vegetables are a perfect start.

Similarly, exercise and other physical activity will promote blood circulation to the outer layers of your skin, providing it with nutrients and oxygen that will help in promoting the health of your skin. We should spend at least 30 minutes three times a week doing a physical activity such as going for a walk, riding a bicycle or swimming. Anything less is just not enough.

One of the biggest problems is the lack of water intake during our daily routine. Most people fail to drink anywhere near an appropriate amount of water, which medical experts state should be no less than 2-3 litres per day. More if you live an active life.

So, a proactive skin care approach while there is nothing wrong with your skin is the best way to prevent problems from occurring later on. Eat healthy, fresh, unprocessed food, do some form of exercise at least 3 times a week and don't forget to drink at least 3 litres of water each and every day.
