Is Your Lifestyle Affecting the Beauty of Your Black Skin?

Is Your Lifestyle Affecting the Beauty of Your Black Skin?

You all know that a healthy lifestyle is essential to how you look and feel. Right? Your eating habits and lifestyle are essential when you consider the wellness of your whole-body.

Unfortunately in a culture of multitasking at lightning speed, you often neglect your health by making poor lifestyle choices. Although you know that your skin is the largest organ of your body, you will still often neglect it.

I know you want your skin to be beautiful but when you are challenged with what you consider imperfections, you focus solely on a quick fix before you consider the internal and external factors. A long term commitment to approach and improve your skins appearance wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

Eating Healthy for Beautiful Black Skin

If you look at what's been introduced to you, especially through the American diet, it's full of simple sugars, carbohydrates and bad fats, including saturated and Trans fat.

Saturated fats are found in whole milk, cheese, red meats, poultry skin and even in plant foods like palm and coconut oils.

Trans fats are man-made, created to allow liquid fat to solidity and last longer before spoiling to increase the stability and shelf life of snack foods. You'll see trans fats in processed foods and labeled as hydrogenated oils.

Trans fats are found in fried foods and processed meat, chips and margarine, they are also associated with triggering inflammation. Inflammation is a major culprit of cancer, aging, poor skin health and disease.

Sugar intake and simple carbohydrates should be limited in order to avoid negative effects on your skin's appearance. Soda, white bread and candy raise your blood sugar levels rapidly, this leads to inflammation and eventually, cellular injury. Excess sugar is said to cause glycation.

Glycation is the result of sugar attacking your body's cells and attaching to protein. Glycation may result in sallow, dull and eventually sagging skin. Collagen and elastin are proteins that are responsible for keeping your skin plump and youthful.

Treatments and Ingredients to Have and Keep Healthy Looking Black Skin

Acne/breakouts - Although I'm in favor of treating acne with nutrition, there are times when a deep cleansing facial or chemical peel should be done, just to bring balance to your skin.

Salicylic acid, sulfur and benzoyl peroxide have been known to help in bringing balance to your skin.

While these ingredients are helpful, nothing will replace nourishing your skin from within and bringing balance to your hormones that are causing the outbreak.

Inflammation – Fried foods, chips, processed meats all contribute to inflammation in your skin. Aside from removing these foods from what you eat, a good product with Vitamin B5, Vitamin E, Green Tea and chamomile as part of their ingredients will help in calming your inflamed skin.

Dehydration – Often part of what mature skin experiences, dehydration can give your skin a dull gray ashy look. For some you'll look as though you put on the wrong color make up and for others, your skin just won't look healthy.

A hydrating facial with a mild lactic acid cleanser or lactic peel will help rejuvenate your skins health. Products with hyaluronic acid and vegetable glycerin will help in restoring moisture to your skin.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles – Yes your black does crack and you will see fine lines and wrinkles on the best of black skin. A mild chemical peel will aid and assist you in handling these little discomforts.

Topical antioxidants with hyaluronic acid or peptides will help in softening these areas and plumping up your skin.

Stress … can't leave without mentioning stress. Unless you learn to minimize stress in your life, your skin will always stay challenged. Besides anxiety, depression and illness, stress can have harmful effects on your skin.

Conditions like psoriasis and rosacea can be aggravated from an increase in stress. Yet the most common visible sign of stress is an acne breakout.

Finally ...

Quiet moments, relaxation, a good night's sleep and a great eating regimen all play an important role in the beauty of your skin.

Do everything you can to keep and maintain peace in your life. Your health and your beautiful black skin depend on it.
