There is a close link between skin health and lifestyle,

often these two aspects are not taken into consideration together, or in any case not enough. Yet they are complementary because it is precisely the lifestyle we decide to adopt that impacts the state of our skin and its health.

The appearance of the skin is the key to our health and well-being.

If your skin is in good health, it works in the right way to protect the body from all those environmental stress factors that attack it every day: allergens, microbes and irritants.

When the skin is healthy , it is easier to regulate body temperature, the complexion appears colorful and the face appears smoother and well hydrated. There are various factors, external and internal, that affect the appearance of the skin.

One of the most common mistakes is to think that using the right cosmetic products is enough to have perfect, healthy and glowing skin.

The truth is that, although the regular use of these products plays their part within a well-planned aesthetic strategy , it is the correct lifestyle that acts on the consequences of the appearance that the skin can take on.

bad dietcigarette smoking, alcohol intake and environmental pollution These are factors that have a strong effect on the well-being of the skin, attacking it, weakening it and causing premature aging.

For this reason it is important, if you are not already doing so, to make small but substantial changes in your daily life : only in this way is it possible to provide the aesthetic treatments carried out in the institute with the correct basis from which to start to work on the imperfections and blemishes of the face

Here are all the good practices to adopt to support aesthetic treatments:

Avoid strong alcoholic drinks

Alcoholic drinks cause premature skin aging. Alcohol dehydrates the skin, prevents the reabsorption of water, slows down cell turnover and promotes the dilation of blood vessels which causes erythema and irritation. A good glass of red wine is better, but always in moderation!

Expose to the sun with caution

Excessive exposure to sunlight has harmful effects on the skin. UVA and UVB rays cause oxidative stress and increase the production of free radicals. It is a must to always use a good sunscreen, with a good SPF factor, to adopt an anti-aging prevention that is truly effective.

Adopt a correct diet

It is very important to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, rich in antioxidantsagainst free radicals. Yes to whole grains, legumes, dried fruit and fish which, rich in Omega3, helps reduce inflammation in the superficial layers of the skin.

Sleep well

Sleep is the body's greatest recharge: it increases immune defenses, reduces stress and regenerates skin cells at a much higher rate than during waking hours. Sleeping little causes the body to produce cortisol, the stress hormone, which over time damages collagen and compromises the health of the skin.

To do physical activity

Doing at least 30 minutes a day of moderate physical activity increases tissue oxygenation, reduces insulin levels, helps you stay fit and has a positive effect on the well-being of the whole body, including the face. Even just a nice half-hour walk a day is enough to promote the well-being of the whole body.

Reduce stress

Stress and anxiety also negatively affect our appearance, again through the production of cortisol, which damages the skin. The well-being of the body always starts from the inside. So it is important to train your breathing, ward off negative situations and take time to dedicate to our inner well-being and relaxation.

Quit smoking

Among the many damages caused by cigarette smoking, there is alsoskin aging. As we said, smoking reduces the skin's supply of oxygen and blood circulation and accelerates skin aging.

Drink a lot of water

Hydrating your skin on the outside with the right products is very important, but good hydration always starts from the inside. Drinking at least 2 liters of water a day helps keep the skin elastic, regenerate cells and prevent the formation of wrinkles. The body will be purified and the skin more luminous.

Correct posture defects

Beauty is also a question of posture. There are many moments of the day in which incorrect positions are taken; in front of the PC, while walking or even just in a standing position. Very often incorrect posture is the hidden cause of many blemishes on the skin of the face. Correcting any defects is therefore essential to plan the best possible treatment.
