Beauty is a woman's nature, and the skin is the largest organ of the body, so women attach great importance to it. However, in Hong Kong, if you need to work indoors for a long time, or like outdoor or water activities, skin care is not an easy task. The following are some factors that are easy to overlook, but can harm the skin:
Air-conditioning is a great invention. Although it can make people cool, the air will be drier. In a low-humidity environment for a long time, the skin's moisture will evaporate very quickly, and there will even be explosive rubbing, which often causes a burden on the skin.
In addition to the expired tear gas, there are also many pollutants in the air. Although the air quality in summer is generally better than that in winter (because of the wind direction and rain), it is more humid in summer. Easy to stick to the skin. When the pores are blocked by contaminants, they are prone to inflammation and cause acne.
UV and sea water
Summer is the biggest enemy of skin care, because the sunshine time is longer and the sun is closer to the surface of the earth, so UV light will cause more damage than winter. Long-term exposure to UV light can easily cause skin coloration, wrinkles and skin aging. If it is exposed to the sun for a long time, it will cause sunburn and peeling.
The salt in the sea water will also affect the skin. If you really want to do water activities, you should take a bath in fresh water as soon as possible. Because even if the sea water dries, the salt will still remain on the surface of the skin, causing adverse effects on the skin.
Skin care tips
Although there are many undesirable factors, it is not an impossible task to have beautiful skin. Here are some skin care tips designed to improve health from the inside, so that the external skin also benefits.
Accelerate metabolism: It can remove senescent cells and toxins in the body as soon as possible, and make up for them by new cells. Among them, aerobic exercise can greatly increase the speed of metabolism. If you add enough sleep, it will get twice the result with half the effort.
Intestinal health: Eat less irritating, strong-flavored or processed foods, thereby reducing toxins entering the body and irritating the skin. If you can eat more high-fiber foods such as raw fruits, you can prevent constipation and make your stool smoother and excrete toxins from your body as soon as possible, so as not to affect your body and skin health.
Drink plenty of water: Every part of the body needs moisture, and the skin is no exception. Moisture will continue to be lost whether it is outdoors or in an air-conditioned environment. In addition to replenishing moisture in the skin, moisture is also the top priority of metabolism and intestinal health.
Take in nutrients for skin health: Certain antioxidants such as astaxanthin and wheat seed extract can prevent free radicals from aging the skin and body, and can also prevent UV damage to the skin. Including wheat seed extract can reduce skin moisture loss, reduce wrinkles, and increase skin elasticity. In terms of vitamins, vitamin B can promote metabolism, while lack of vitamin A will be more prone to acne. As vitamin E itself is an antioxidant, it can reduce the damage caused by free radicals to the skin. Many skin care products have been added to vitamin E to protect the skin.
