Skin Care Tips

Posted on Updated on

Skin Care is important because your skin, (the largest organ in the body), is your body’s first and primary line of defense against germs, bacteria, viruses, disease, and environmental intruders.  The way you care for your skin determines how your skin looks, when it wrinkles and at what rate it ages. Many say that it is gene related, however, even a person with great genes who does not care for the skin will see some aging results.

As we age, our skin changes. Moisturizing skin with nutrient rich natural ingredients is so very important in the aging process. As we age, skin becomes thinner, sensitive to product ingredients and materials, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Veins and bones can be seen more easily. Cuts, bruises, scratches, or bumps may take longer to heal. Years of sun tanning  may lead to dry skin, damaged skin, wrinkles, age spots, and even cancer. But, there is hope because there are things that you can do to protect and preserve your skin. The earlier you start with these practices the better for your skin in the longterm.

Avoid things that age the skin!

  • Excessive Sun
  • Tanning beds
  • Harsh Weather
  • Smoking
  • Inflammatory Foods
  • Excessive Alcohol
  • Bad Diet
  • Stress
  • Pollution

Make Olive Oil Your Best Friend!

  • Add it to your bath
  • Add it to your body while in the shower (after soap))
  • Mix it with water in a spray bottle and splash yourself while at the beach
  • Add it to your skin right before a workout
  • Put it on your body before you sleep
  • Use it to remove makeup

Incorporate Healthy  Lifestyle Habits!

  • Eat Healthy (Add more Alkaline Foods to All Meals)
  • Minimize Acidic Foods
  • Exfoliate your skin weekly
  • Add foods rich in Omega 3 to your diet
  • Wear Suntan Lotion of SPF of 30 or higher
  • Wear Protective Clothing
  • Commit to Using Olive oil or Coconut oil or Shea Butter on Skin daily
  • Minimize chemical exposure and absorption when possible
  • Clean skin regularly
  • Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize Skin

Keep Positive Energy Around You! 

  • Minimize negative friends
  • Eliminate “unnecessary stress”
  • Make choices that are good for you mentally, physically, and spiritually
  • Deal with stress head-on… by exercising your worries away
  • Surround yourself with Motivational type people who encourage your growth and development
  • Smile at every chance that you get
  • Eat to Live; Don’t Live to Eat

Skin is a very complicated organ but taking care of it does not have to be a complicated process. Early prevention, healthy lifestyle habits, nutrient rich diets, exercise, and tons of positive energy will help to keep your skin vibrant and healthy.

The author, T. Bohler, wrote this article to spread the news about the importance of skin care and the simple things that can be done to preserve the look, feel, and quality of your skin. The earlier you start in the process the better. She has been using olive oil on her skin since she was 20 years old (over 28 years ago). In addition, as the CEO of Mikios Natural Body Scrub, she ensures that all body scrubs are made  with olive oil.

ELL is our newest body scrub that contains oil of lemon eucalyptus — a natural mosquito repellent. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) oil of lemon eucalyptus is a natural mosquito repellent and is just as effective as Deet for repelling mosquitos. With the current rise of the Zika Virus, protection from mosquito bites is vital to our health. This body scrub  exfoliates, moisturizes, and repells mosquitos. The next time you are headed outdoors just wet your body with water, rub it on, rinse it off and pay your body dry. Don’t worry, mosquitos will fly pass you in a hurry.
