Skin Care: How to protect your
skin from Sun?
Our skin is the most exposed part of the body that has to inevitably endure
the test of nature and time. Skin covers outer body, hence making it more prone
to dust, pollution, seasonal changes, etc. Mental stress, physical stress
all directly affects the skin, and the results are visible.
Skin is that part of the body which gets max sun exposure. Sun has some
harmful rays like UV rays which can deeply destroy our protective
shield i.e skin. If we don't compromise with the health of our body why compromise
with the health of our skin? Skin care is essential for healthy living.
Experts say that skin should be treated with minimal amount of chemicals.
Mental and physical stress leads to degradation of skin.
Ever wondered why a child's skin is so lively and full of life?? Reason stand right
besides our daily life. Daily life stress on teenagers, peer pressure,
pressure of studies, competition with the outer world etc. All such
pressures lead to early signs of aging.
Note: The skin is made up of 7 layers. To reach and activate the
deepest layer of the tissue, roughly 800 matra time of tactile sensation or massage
is required. Going by this theory, 15 min of massage is enough daily.
