Loving your body is extremely necessary for today’s day and age. It is imperative to our mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Most adults today have no time for personal care and love due to rigorous work schedules, social commitments, family time, and travel time. You must address the underlying factor joining all these aspects together – your body and personal health. If you do not concentrate on your body and how you maintain it, there is bound to be a backlash at some day.
While most people concentrate on their diets, foods, stress busters, yoga, and exercise, they tend to ignore using the right products for their body. Each person is unique. As such, you must use different products for your needs and specifications. When no one likes being seen in similar clothes to other people daily, why should you settle for looking the same? Use the right products that suit your skin type, hair type, and nail type, through regular attention, proper regimes, maintenance, and discipline. The best part is, you don’t need expensive products to do it, and a healthy body can be achieved through home remedies as well.
Let us look at some ways we can treat our bodies better by using the right products.
Your skin is the most visible organ on your entire body. Treating it right is a must! Your skin helps protect your body from harmful germs and infectious agents. Many people also like healthy looking skin as it is a sign of a healthy fully functional body. Whenever you fall ill or are sick, the skin is the first to look pasty, discolored, or tired. Use right products that help your skin look supple, with a radiant glow.
There are three common skin types-
Dry skin – People with dry skin should use moisturizers daily. Dry skin can look wrinkly and transparent after a while. It can also look fragile and get scratches easily. Dry, chapped skin can also be painful since it might break on its own due to stretching. Cleanse and moisturize your skin with a creamy, moisturizing lotion at least twice a day to retain the natural suppleness and bounce to your skin cells. Regularly use a mild facewash to maintain the pH balance of the skin. Oli from The Fab Lab said “many people think they have dry skin, but infact it’s actually combination and this can lead to choosing the wrong products.”
Oily skin – People with oily skin should apply a generous amount of antibacterial powder to the areas with joints. Oily skin can cause bacterial infections and rashes to break out on the back of the knees, the crook of your arm, hips, and groin region. Women with oily skin have a chance of getting oily skin breakouts under their breasts and on their faces. Use water-based facewashes and creams to avoid excess oil buildup on your pores. Cleanse, tone, and moisturize your skin daily to combat oil buildup on the face and neck.
Combination skin – People with combination skin usually start the day with dry skin and end up with oily skin. Such people should use a good quality face wash and toner to combat the combination skin problem. Washing, toning and moisturizing the face will help keep a right balance between the oily and dry elements of the skin.
Picking the right product for your skin type is essential for good skin care, you can find reviews online such as at Civilized Health to find the product that suits you before you buy.
Irrespective of how you long you like to shower, avoid using excessive shampoo and conditioner on your hair. Whether you have a dry or oily scalp, washing your hair too many times will drain it of its natural oils that help keep hair supple and shiny. Wash your hair with warm water instead of hot water to avoid getting dry hair and skin conditions. A hair pack followed by a mild shampoo and conditioner can help bring back the bounce, shine, and vitality to hair.
While long nails are beautiful, healthy nails are even prettier. Regularly cut, file, and buff your nails to keep them looking healthy for more extended periods of time. Women should not wear the same nail polish on their nails for longer than a week since nail paint can severely discolor nails and make them look unhealthy and unkept. Men should cut and file their nails so that they look well groomed at work and while meeting new people. Yellowed, cracked, or discolored nails are a sign of ill health and hygiene. Healthy nails speak volumes about personal care and maintenance.
A healthy body requires love, care, attention, and using the right products that suit your body and skin type. Remember to eat foods that contain less oil and spice to avoid health complications and go for a brisk walk or a run at least once a week to maintain your health.
