RECIPES to Combat

 

 

Daily purification and nurturing of skin, together with a healthy lifestyle (Lifestyle), will generally prevent skin problems. Homemade products work gently for long-term results, treating the early signs of problems rather than acute problems. That is why prevention and early detection is the key for the common skin problems listed in this section: Acne, pigmentation, and premature ageing.

Pigmentation

Pigmentation is not always caused by external factors but is usually the result of three factors: Physical, physiological, and emotional. It is far more effective to focus on prevention in the case of pigmentation rather than treatment or at least to seek a cure as soon as the pigmentation becomes visible. Sunscreens are necessary to fight photodamage caused by UV radiation. However, the safety and efficacy of many sunscreen ingredients are still in question.6 Certain chemical agents (e.g. benzophenone and similar compounds) commonly found in sunscreens have been proven to increase the risk of cancer.7 Because sunscreens act in different ways—they block, reflect and/or scatter sun rays, many cosmetic products include sunscreening agents to provide photoprotection. The recipes introduced here are to prevent, protect, and treat pigmentation in a safe and natural way.

Tips

If you are not exposed to casual sunlight, then powders can be appropriate for daily wear by reflecting the sun’s rays. It should be noted, however, that powder can cause uneven photoprotection as it does not provide an even film over the faceSo it is important to spread it across the covered areas as evenly as possible. See Powder Foundation in the later section.

Age-Defying

The word anti-ageing itself does not go with the natural and holistic philosophy because ageing surely is a natural process that nobody can reverse.

The first thing to understand is that ageing signs, whether wrinkles or sagging of the skin, will not be eliminated naturally without medical intervention; again prevention becomes the key. Protect your skin intelligently from dehydration and UV rays before the ageing process starts, ideally during your 20s and 30s. Your lifestyle will eventually have an effect on how your skin looks at the later stages of life. Not only your nutrition and regular exercise but also your expression and posture contribute to defying the ageing process. No matter what you do, you can only minimise the process, so the goal is not to look younger but look your best at every age.
