Health Fitness and Beauty

Health Fitness and Beauty

Health is wealth. By being physically fit, it can make a person look lean both inside and out.

There is a lot a person can do such as jogging or walking in the morning, playing basketball or any other sport with friends.

Just like taking any medicine, one should first consult the doctor before undergoing any form of exercise.

Physical exercise is beneficial because it helps maintain and improve ones health from a variety of diseases and premature death. It also makes a person feel happier and increases ones self esteem, preventing one from falling into depression or anxiety. It has also shown that a person with an active lifestyle lives longer than a person who doesn’t.

A person who has never worked out before should do it gradually. Doing it too much for the first time can result in injury. It is important to take incremental steps.

Beauty is not only about having muscles which is what people can see. It is also about enhancing the beauty within.

Here are some things one can do everyday to stay beautiful and healthy;

  • Reading books and other reading material more often keeps the mind sharp just like working out keeps the body in shape.
  • Work no matter what kind it is, produces stress. One can reduce this by taking the time out to do something special like taking a stroll at the beach, shopping or watching a movie. Studies have shown that it is a reliever and helps one from looking haggardly.

Advanced Sun Protection

Advanced Sun Protection

  • We cannot control the condition of the atmosphere we are in. The effects of the sun on our skin can be harmful to our health. When one goes out, it is best to put on some form of protection such as Ortus Advanced Sun Protection that contain antioxidants that protect the skin from damage. There are also other beauty products available and choosing the right one with the help of a trusted dermatologist can help the person.
  • Another way to stay healthy is to give up some unhealthy habits. Most people smoke and drink. Smoking has been proven to cause lung cancer and other diseases as well as complications for women giving birth. Excessive drinking has also shown to do the same.
  • For people who don’t smoke, it is best to stay away from people who do, since studies have shown that nonsmokers are also at risk of developing cancer due to secondary smoke inhalation.

Smile

  • Lastly, it is best to always start the day with a positive outlook. Just as studies have shown that exercise makes a person feel happier, smiling produces the same effect. A smile can do a lot and it is contagious in a positive sense. It brightens the day of not only one but others as well.

Effects Of The Sun On Skin

Effects Of The Sun On Skin

Sun Exposure to Skin

With the present condition our atmosphere is in, harmful rays from the sun pass through in ever increasing amounts causing damage to the skin and hampering its ability to repair itself.

Over a period of time, a few minutes a day of exposure to ultraviolet rays results in changes to the skin (freckles, age spots, rough skin). An even graver symptom would be the onset of skin cancer.

Dermatologists call this effect photoaging in reference to the sun’s rays that reduce the production of collagen responsible for maintaining the skin’s elasticity.

Photoaging is premature aging of the skin caused by repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV) primarily from the sun, but also from artificial UV sources.

One’s susceptibility to photoaging is determined by the amount of pigment in the skin as well as the frequency and duration one spends under the sun’s rays.

Given these factors, fair-skinned individuals and those who spend long periods under the sun stand to have more pronounced effects of photoaging compared to those who are darker-skinned and spend more time in the shade.

On the bright side, sunlight allows our bodies to produce Vitamin D, which is important for normal bone formation. However, do remember, prolonged exposure to UV radiation can cause sunburn. UV rays penetrate the outer skin layers and pass into the deeper layers, where they can damage or kill skin cells.
