Direction to a Fabulous Skin

The human skin is the outer covering of the body. Because it interfaces with the environment, skin plays a key role in protecting the body against pathogens and excessive water loss. Its other functions are insulation, sensation, synthesis of Vitamin D and the protection of vitamin B folates. Severely damage skin will try to heal by forming scar tissue.  Here are your way to fabulous skin :

1. Eat your five-a-day

Fruit and vegetables contain powerful antioxidants that help to protect skin from the cellular damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are caused by smoking, pollution and sunlight and can cause wrinkling and age spots. Eat a rainbow of colorful fruit and vegetables and aim for at least five portions a day. Beta carotene, found in pumpkin, carrots and sweet potatoes, and lutein found in kale, papaya and spinach are potent   antioxidants, important for normal skin cell development and healthy skin tone.

2. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is also a super antioxidant. It is needed for a strong immune system, radiant skin and helps blemishes heal properly. The best sources are blackcurrants, blueberries, brocolli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, papaya, strawberries and sweet potatoes.  They all help to produce collagen that strengthens the capillaries that supply the skin.

3. Cut out crash diets

Repeatedly losing and regaining weight can take its toll on your skin, causing sagging, wrinkles and stretch marks. Crash diets are often short in essential vitamins too. Over long periods of time this type of dieting will reflect on your skin.

4. Stock up on Selenium 

Selenium is a powerful antioxidant. It works alongside other antioxidants such as vitamins E and C and is essential for the immune system. Studies suggest that a selenium-rich diet can help to protect against skin cancer, sun damage and age spots. One way to boost your intake is to eat Brazil nuts. Just four nuts will provide the recommended daily amount (RDA). Mix Brazil nuts with other seeds rich in vitamin E as a snack or salad sprinkle. Other good sources are fish, shellfish, eggs, wheatgerm, tomatoes and brocolli.

 5. Vitamin E

Vitamin E protects skin from oxidative (cell) damage and supports healthy skin growth. Foods high in vitamin E include almonds, avocado, hazelnuts, pine nuts and sun flower and corn oils. 

6. Don’t be afraid of fat

Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats – the types found in avocados, fish, nuts and seeds – provide essential fatty acids which act as a natural moisturizer for your skin, keeping it supple. These fats also come packaged with a healthy dose of vitamin E (a vitamin many of us lack), which will help protect against free radical damage.

7. Eat more phyto-estrogens

Phyto-estrogens are natural chemicals found in plant foods (phyto meaning plant). They have a similar structure to the female sex hormone oestrogen and have been found to help keep our natural hormones in balance. There are different types, some are found in soya bean products (isoflavones), whereas others are found in the fibre of wholegrains, fruit, vegetables and flax seeds (lignans). Include phyto-estrogen rich soya, wholegrains, fruits and vegetables as part of a balanced diet.

8.  Opt for omega-3

Make sure you get enough omega-3 and omega-6 fats. These are essential fatty acids which mean they cannot be made in the body and must be obtained through the diet. You will find omega-3s in oily fish and plant sources such as flaxseed oil, linseeds, walnut and rapeseed oil. Omega-3 fats encourage the body to produce anti-inflammatory compounds, which can help skin, particularly inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and psorasis.

9. Go for low-GI carbs

Eat plenty of beans, pulses, porridge and other slow-releasing carbohydrates. These release sugar into the blood stream gradually, providing you with a steady supply of energy and leaving you feeling satisfied for longer and therefore less likely to snack. Avoid high GI carbohydrates like biscuits and sugary drinks, as they lead to production of insulin, which may damage collagen and accelerate wrinkles.

Finally…

Don’t expect an overnight miracle. It takes six weeks for new skin to emerge up to the surface…

Work Smart, Top Result

We work hard so we can achieve the best results in our life. Hard work, where person perform their job without any plan, they put their 100% effort to achieve the goal. But in smart work, person perform their job by well plan, and they put their all effort to achieve, not only the goal but unique identity also. Working smarter, not harder, is an age-old adage. We all should master the concept and your entire working life will be easier.

There are simple methods that we could apply and implement in life :

1. Prioritize

Make work outline and limit your goals. Before you plunge into something please list down the list so you can be sure that every details is accomplished on time and accurately. Try to do things in one batch at a time, put your best effort into that until it is accomplished.

prioritize2. Evaluate Your methods You want them to be as efficient as possible.

Do your work when you have no distractions surrounding you. You want your efficiency to be maximized as much as possible.

Prioritize - 2

3. Be Flexible

Your day will not always go as planned. Be open to trying new methods and doing new things.

Be flexible

4. Holiday is a must.

You can certainly pull continuous 12 hour days at work, but it’s not sustainable. After a certain point, your body becomes tired and your mind wears down, leading to more frequent lapses in concentration and careless mistakes. Holiday will help you reduce the stress and make you feel refresh.
