So today let's finish up this topic with 1 of my "SECRETS" to "healthy" skin.
As I stated the other day . . . our skin's "protective" barrier which is called our "acid mantle" . . . is made up of "fatty acid" . . . and simply put . . . replacing these "fatty acids" can "restore" this "protective barrier".
And now I'm sure you're thinking . . . how long does it take for the "acid mantle" to be repaired???
Well . . . believe it or not . . . our skin has the ability to "restore" its "acid mantle" within a few hours.
"IF" . . . we're not out in the sun or putting make-up or lotions on our skin
You see . . . something as simple as washing our face with just "plain" water can help to hydrated the skin and help to balance our skin's pH level.
BUT . . . if we continue to "lose" the moisture in our skin and break down our "acid mantle" . . . our skin will become red, flakey, dry, dehydrated, tight, sensitive and more prone to have rashes like eczema
Okay . . . so with that being said . . .
What do I use???
Well . . . 1 of my little "SECRETS" is . . . organic "unrefined" cold-press coconut oil . . .
Why you ask???
Well . . . this particular coconut oil is a "fatty acid" . . . and remember we need to replenish the "fatty acids" in our "acid mantle".
And as we now know . . . "fatty acids" are essential to skin health. They play a special role in strengthening our skin's surface, smoothing the skin, increasing hydration, calming redness and sensitivity, easing flakiness and providing antioxidants to protect against environmental damage . . . like the sun.
And the reason this particular "fatty acid" works so well . . . is that it contains "Lauric acid" which has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties which can help reduce inflammation and damage to the skin's DNA.
You see . . . the "Lauric acid" in coconut oil will also help "boost" the body's "collagen" production for youthful looking skin.
But . . . there's still more to this story . . . so next week I'll give you the rest of this important information on "skin cancer" and other skin issues . . .
So have a great weekend . . . stay safe and be "mindful"
