How can I get good skin?
Make it a habit…

To treat it right, feed it right, and always love it!


"I regret taking such good care of my skin" - said no one ever

Our skin is the largest organ of our body. It’s also the one we see the most whenever we look ourselves in the mirror. It’s important to give your aging skin the basic care that it deserves so that your skin can be healthy and give you a better look of being healthy too.

This is very important…the condition of your skin is a good indicator of your present overall health condition.

The skin you see when you look into a mirror is reflecting back to you the kind of lifestyle you’re living and the present state of your health. So take a good look. Whether you like it or not, people judge us by our skin, I’m not getting racist here, I’m talking about the “condition” of our skin.

Think about it. A person that has scabs, rashes, or some kind of skin problems that may be a sign of a disease will not make the cut as being a prospective mate. From what I understand, this is something that goes back to our ancient ancestors.

The skin that you have now can become healthier and more radiant by focusing on three things…what you eat, what you put on your skin and how much you love your skin.

Eat junk food, get junk skin. Eat nutritious food and your skin will glow with thanks. Love your skin no matter what condition it is in, will help you do what is right for making your skin recover, get better and rejuvenate into better skin.

Your journey to getting healthy skin is learning healthy habits of eating, taking care of your skin, and maintaining a healthy mindset of yourself and the skin that you’re wrapped in.

Okay, let’s survey this layer of skin we move from within. First of all, just the skin on our bodies is not all created equal nor is it the same. For example, the skin around your eyes, the skin of your lips, and neck are different. These areas along with the face and other parts of the body need to be treated differently.

Next, do you know your skin type?

Here are some factors affecting skin type:

  • ​Oil production. Are you an oil magnate, where you are pumping out oil through your pores that would make the oil wells of the Middle East pale in production? 
    Or no oil at all. Of course there are variations between the two extremes.
  • Hormones. Men, women, growing teenagers, all have hormones that affect the kind of skin they wear
  • ​Stress. Too much, or constant stress effects the skin's ability to regenerate in a healthy way
  • ​Medications. Some medications have a bullying effect on the skin, and we both know that's not going to help make the skin better.

Skin Type Simple Test

Here's how to find your basic skin type:
First, wash your face and pat dry.
Next, press pieces of tissue on different parts of your face.

  • If the tissue sticks or becomes wet, your skin is an oily type skin.​
  • ​If the tissue doesn't get wet an falls off, doesn't stick, you have dry skin.
  • If the tissue sticks just to either the forehead, nose, and/or chin (known as the "T-Zone", your skin is the combination type.

Skin problems, in general and specific to a skin type, are good to know about because you can learn how to heal and make your skin better. It’s not a bad idea to know what irritates the skin, you may be surprised, it could be something as simple as a new laundry detergent. There are times when we experience bad skin conditions, what can be done about it and how can it be prevented. Hopefully, together, we’ll find an answer here.

For now, the best thing you can do is get into a daily routine that cleans, tones, and moisturizes. This is a good start to rejuvenating a healthier skin. Add in a healthy lifestyle that affects the way you live in your skin in a positive, healthy fashion–a kind of healthy skin lifestyle and your on the way to getting good skin. Start eating better. When you add each part of the skin improving habit, your skin should show some noticeable improvements.
