Your skin is your armor, your shield from the elements. Yet when was the last time you really thought about what you need to do to take care of it? Throughout your life, genetic and environmental factors will cause a lot of wear and tear to your skin.

There are several factors influencing how quickly our skin ages, ranging from genetic factors, your natural skin type, as well as external factors such as exposure to sunlight, environmental factors and whether you smoke or not.

The simpler the food, the less processing and the fresher your food is, the better it is for you. Fresh fruit and vegetables contain so many of the nutrients we need to maintain our health.

The body's ability to produce new collagen and elastin also diminishes with age while the cells in the various layers of our skin decline and thin, loosing the ability to adequately maintain moisture.

What you should consider is that what any skin care program should be is simple. That's it, just simple.

The results that we all want are simple: soft, smooth, clear, radiant, younger-looking skin.

You should be able to adjust your program to meet your skin's daily needs. If you can't adjust the use of the products to match what your skin needs on a particular day, are you really getting what you need? Your program should be able to hydrate, heal, and renew your skin. You should see this gradual improvement everyday and not have to wait 30 to 60 days for results.

You should feel comfortable with makeup optional skin. If your skin care is really working, your skin will improve and you will not want to put makeup on it if you don't have to. Most skin problems are correctable to a large degree. You should be able to go out feeling confident that your skin is at its best (with minimal makeup) no matter what your age is. Also, by using makeup less, you are giving your skin more time to repair and restore itself without the interruption of other product chemicals on your skin.

My own research was a life-changing career path as I discovered the many fantastic benefits of natural skin care and of the potent and fantastic vibrancy to be found in organic skin care products due to the concentrated effect that the organic ingredients contained.

Before purchasing skin care cream for the face, you should know that not every ingredient or product will provide the desired results you seek. In fact, some creams have the potential to make matters worse by causing allergic reactions or skin irritations.

Lastly in my article I'd like to mention,b>Retinol (a natural form of Vitamin A). Retinol is excellent in skin care products that are aimed to regenerate and rejuvenate skin. It is especially effective on sensitive skin since it does not cause redness or peeling.

Increasingly, consumers are becoming aware of the potential health risks presented by artificial and other non-natural ingredients in beauty products. We all, well most of us, avoid foods and beverages which contain artificial preservatives, flavours, emulsifiers, etc., for sound health reasons. These days, we've extended this concern to other areas of products we use on our body and in our home.
