Why is maintaining healthy skin important? Your skin is the largest organ on your body, it takes up to 16% of your body weight. Your skin protects your body against the harsh rays of the sun, viruses, bacteria and other harmful substances in the environment, whilst ensuring your body temperature and water balance are all correct. Maintaining healthy skin is not only about keeping up appearances in our selfie-driven world but a matter of health. Whether this is physical or psychological health.

According to a recent survey by Cosmetics Europe, 72% of consumers in Europe felt that personal care products increased their quality of life whilst 80% of the same group felt that these products improved their self-esteem. If you follow our six easy steps, you will be well on your way to maintaining the health of your skin.



When taking care of your skin hygiene, make sure to stay as natural as possible. Traditional skincare products often contain chemicals, such as parabens and phthalates that are more harmful than helpful to the overall well-being of your skin. Try looking into products such as spirulina or other organic skin care products which help detoxify your skin leaving it happy and healthy.

60% of humans are made up of water, so it is only natural that a key element of your skin’s health lies in drinking enough water. According to experts, you have to drink at least two litres of water or eight glasses a day. This will help keep your skin hydrated, giving your skin a soft plump look while also increasing the elasticity of the skin. In addition to this, by keeping your skin hydrated it will automatically combat oily skin.



The benefits of exercise are seen throughout your lungs, heart and body, so it is without question that exercise forms as a vital part in maintaining healthy skin. Through regular exercise, oxygen and nutrients are carried to the skin and intertwined between the very cells of your skin. This does not detox the skin, however, it does carry dead skin cells away and flush them from your system. You can view it as a sort of ‘interior clean’ for your skin.



It is no secret that hormones greatly affect the condition of your skin. When we stress our bodies release a hormone called cortisol, this affects the health of our skin and often results in acne. This is why it is essential to manage your stress. By incorporating meditation and deep breathing exercises into your daily routine you can lower your stress levels easily.



When you feed your body, you also feed your skin. By incorporating healthy oils and food rich in omega-3 fatty acids, you can ensure that your skin will look healthy and supple. Whilst sticking to a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole wheat grains, you ensure that vitamin C, A, and E are all carried to the skin. This will ensure the overall health of your skin and body, whilst maintaining a youthful look and feel.



Your skin is an extension of you, so take care to treat it kindly. Limit bath times and avoid strong soaps as both these can dry out your skin. Also, ensure that you shave carefully and lubricate your skin before and after shaving. This can be done by using gel or shaving cream for the before and moisturiser for the after. Furthermore, remember everybody has a different skin type, so find a moisturiser that works with the unique DNA of your own skin.

As beauty expert Linden Tyler says, “Invest in your skin. It’s going to represent you for a very long time.”  Your skin is an extension of who you are, physically and aesthetically. The rule remains, if you look after yourself you look after your skin. So, make sure to cut time out of your day to take care of yourself and your skin. With our six easy steps, you can invest in healthy skin and a healthy lifestyle while staying as natural as possible. You will never regret the time and effort put into feeling better and looking better. Love yourself, love your skin and celebrate your life.
