The Art of Skin Care through Self Care

skin care

Most of us view our skin as an outside entity. Little do we know that our skin is purely a reflection of our inner health? Investing in skincare products that work from the outside turns useless if your inner self is not cared for.

Our busy lifestyle makes it difficult for us to take time off for ourselves; this is why our physical and mental health usually takes a backseat as we progress at work. But, if you’re not in good mental and physical shape, it can have a domino effect on the rest of your life.

At CureSkin, we make health our priority. So, let’s have a look at how you can too!

How to keep your skin healthy according to our skin expert Dr Jisha 

We are what we eat

The food we eat nourishes our bodies. The quality of our skin is significantly dependant on the kind of food we eat. Hence, food should be eaten for your nourishment and wellbeing, rather than just as a response to hunger and taste.

Our mind is powerful.

The connection between the skin and the mind exists! It is proven that stress, depression, anxiety, and other psychological conditions can contribute to a host of skin diseases, including acne. “The skin and the central nervous system are intertwined,” says Dr Adam Friedman, director of dermatologic research at Montefiore Medical Centre in New York. Many a time, the root cause of your skin issues can stem from your mental health.  Try to manage and reduce the stress levels in your life with things like yoga, meditation and therapy.

Make lifestyle corrections

Lifestyle changes can play a huge role in your overall health and their effect on your skin. Inculcating healthy practices like a decent exercise routine, a balanced and nutritious diet, reduced lethargy and surrounding yourself with positive things like music and arts can enhance your body, mind, spirit and skin!

Shut down once in a while

Stop being ‘busy’ all the time. Take some time off your routine. Invest time in sports, adopt the reading habit, or spend some quality time with your loved ones. Allow your brain to reset with frequent breaks. By doing so, you’ll see a positive change not just in your skin’s health but in your overall health too.

Be content

A sense of contentment positively impacts your skin’s health. Happy people tend to have healthier skin and age slower. Each thought, each experience, and each reaction can have a physiological impact on your skin. Negative emotions lead to disturbance in the equilibrium of the body’s functioning. The world is a tough place to live in today. So, don’t hesitate to reach out for help to a friend, a loved one or a therapist if you are struggling with maintaining a balance.

The silver lining

All in all, when the mind and body are healthy, the difference it makes in your skin is evident enough even for others to notice. Take care of your body and mind, and they will do it right back for you. Hold on to the things that matter the most in life.

Things that ground you like taking a long hot soak in the bath, spending time in nature, taking a break from social media, meditating, and even cooking can be relaxing self-care activities that work well.

3. What are the 8 areas of self-care? 

There are eight categorised areas of self-care when it comes to your entire life.

They include physical care, emotional care, psychological care, financial care, environmental care, spiritual care and professional care.

4. How can you build a relationship with your body?

You can build a relationship with your body by listening to it and catering to its needs. Self-love plays a massive role in this. It is so important to accept your body for what it is and love it because that is what it deserves, and so do you!

Beautiful skin is an inside-outside job; all you need to do is – Self-care!
