Your baby’s skin is soft and pure. As you hold your baby you may wonder what happened to my skin? Why doesn’t our skin stay as soft as when we are young children? What are the 4 keys to soft skin?
- One of the main ways to regain soft skin is to consider what we eat. I know your thinking who cares what I eat it doesn’t touch my skin. But soft skin really starts from within our bodies. What you put in your stomach will impact your skin. A diet that focuses on Organic Non GMO produce is essential in regaining your soft skin. To help boost the production of collagen increase your intake of produce high in vitamin C. Moisturise your skin from with by consuming foods with omega-3 fatty acids (can be found naturally in oily fish, avocado (my favorite) and olive oil (Greeks eat olive oil like its going out of style and the Greeks I know have amazing skin)).
- Sleep and rest is very important. If you are not getting the recommended amount of sleep each night you need to sit down and review your schedule and make time to sleep and rest every day. Some say they just can’t get to bed in time but alot of the time that could be used for sleep is usually lost in front of a TV screen or computer. Its vital to review how you use your time and give your body the rest it deserves.
- Drink water every day. Our bodies are all different, make sure you are drinking the recommended amount of water for your body.
Here is some interesting information from a chemistry expert: “The amount of water in the human body ranges from 50-75%. The average adult human body is 50-65% water, averaging around 57-60%. The percentage of water in infants is much higher, typically around 75-78% water, dropping to 65% by one year of age.” Information Reference. If you desire that baby soft skin water intake is essential.
- Moisturise your skin with best organic products. Avoid anything that contains mineral oils (petrochemical derivatives), SLSs, parabens or artificial colours. My families favorite moisturiser is actually a natural organic cooking oil that has use outside the kitchen. In my family we use Organic Coconut Oil as a moisturiser. We use Organic Coconut Oil on our hands, lips and face to protect our skin from drying out.
