Inhale, Exhale, Exfoliate…

Beauty is the most notable and remarkable aspect of all human beings. Beauty is not only a characteristic of a person, but also reason for inspiration for artists. Since long ago, the beauty of a woman has shown interest among painters, sculptors, philosophers and poets. Female face and body will always remain part of the great works of artists. Maybe standards of beauty have changed over time, due to different cultural values, but there is something that will always hold its worth: women’s skin!

A beautiful and smooth skin will never go out of style. The touch of a woman with soft skin will forever be the greatest poet’s muse of all times. Maintaining beautiful and healthy skin includes care from inside and out. That is why we choose to name this article inhale, exhale and exfoliate. Stress can have a major impact to your skin look. We know it’s difficult to wake up every day and turn your Zen mode on, but you can meditate once in a while. There are many simple exercises that are great for dealing with stress. It will take you a few minutes during the day, but they will teach you how to breathe properly. Take deep relaxing breaths during your work hours and chill for a short time.

This is very important for regulating the hormonal balance in your body, particularly the cortisol. Cortisol is a steroid hormone and it affects many functions in the body. It is also called “stress hormone” because of its relation with stress, they are in mutual proportionality. A little sleep and everyday stress increases the levels of this hormone. It breaks down the elastin, which can lead to worsen skin conditions. Understanding this significant hormone will help you balance your life and maintain clean, soft and healthy skin. And now, let’s focus on external care: exfoliating!

First, we must clarify the term “exfoliate”. The simpler definition would be: washing/rubbing a part of the body using a granular or sticky substance to remove dead skin cells from the surface. During a day we shed almost a million skin cells. This cells fall of the skin, allowing new cells to grow and regenerate the skin. Inflammation occurs when these microscopic particles are getting stuck in our pores. Accompanied with body’s natural oils they are clogging the pore, resulting in blackheads, whiteheads and other skin conditions. Exfoliation is like helping the skin to remove dead skin cells regularly.

Exfoliation should be done once per week, on every part of your body. For the face you can use a purifying peeling Black Mask, and for the body parts you can use natural homemade body scrubs. For example, sugar, olive oil and lemon mixture scrub is ideal for every skin type. Make a face steaming therapy and take a hot shower before the exfoliation. This way you will help your skin to collaborate. It is important to emphasize that over exfoliation will irritate the skin, leaving her flaky and dry. In whatever way, every success lies in moderation.
