To many girls in their mother’s youth, advice seemed like bans that needed to be broken. Years later, the girls realized that mom was still right. Let’s recall the most frequent “mother’s tips” and see why it was important to follow them.
Eat porridge in the morning
Porridge in the morning is the most wholesome food, especially if this is buckwheat, millet, or oatmeal. They began to sing praises of oatmeal in ancient times. And there was a reason: oat grain contains 40-55% starch, 10-14% protein substances, 5-8% fat, 8% protein, vitamins B1, B2, B4, K, potassium, phosphorus, iron, chromium, manganese, zinc, iodine, nicotinic and pantothenic acids. Familiar to everyone, Hercules is rich in sulfur, which is very important for the normal functioning of the nervous system and blood formation, growth and strength of nails, hair, cartilage, and bones. Silicon found in oats is also good for healthy hair. Essential fatty amino acids are present in plant proteins of oats: tryptophan and lysine.
Oatmeal compares favorably with other cereals with its high content of biotin – vitamin H, an active participant in the exchange of cholesterol, amino acids, and proteins. An adequate presence of Vitamin H has a good effect on the skin condition.
Drink more water
Today it is no secret to anyone that not only good health but, as it turned out, the condition of the skin depends on the water balance in the body. In order for the skin to remain young, smooth, and supple longer, you need to drink at least 1.5 liters of clean water per day. It cleanses the body of toxins and is also involved in many metabolic processes, including the absorption of water-soluble vitamins.
Smoking is harmful!
Smoking affects not only the appearance but also the health of the whole organism as a whole. Just a single puff brings about 100 trillion free radicals to the body. Nicotine is dangerous for the heart, brain, and blood vessels, which narrow and make it difficult for oxygen to enter tissues and organs. Of course, smoking is also displayed on the skin. It ages faster, loses elasticity and healthy color, wrinkles appear on it.
Wash at night
Everyone knows how to wash – this procedure is extremely simple. Morning and evening, it is necessary to clean the skin. This should be done especially carefully before going to bed: it is at night that regenerative processes in the skin start, so it is very important that it is free from dust, dirt, and makeup residues. By the way, going to bed “with full makeup” is extremely harmful. Therefore, no matter how tired you are, makeup must be washed off at night.
Do not touch your face with your hands
Touching your face with your hands during the day is an extremely bad habit. A lot of bacteria accumulate on the hands, which, getting on the surface of the skin of the face, can cause inflammation. Do you need these annoying rashes? If not, try not to touch the face again. Especially dirty hands. No matter how trite this item may sound, but cosmetologists claim that this bad habit often spoils the appearance of the skin.
Do not squeeze acne Squeezing pimples
It is harmful and dangerous. Firstly, because the infection can be spread over the entire surface of the skin. As a result of such “assault”, scars may remain on the face, which then will be extremely difficult to remove. In addition, doctors claim that squeezing acne in the area of the nasolabial triangle is simply life-threatening. It is in this zone that a huge number of capillaries and veins are concentrated. Any infection that enters the bloodstream at this location can directly enter the brain. You understand, an extremely dangerous neighborhood…
Wear a panama
Hat in summer On hot days, a hat is not only able to protect the body and brain from overheating, but it also protects the hair from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation. As you know, the sun overdries the hair, making it dry and brittle. In addition, it contributes to the fading of the artificial dye, which means it will have to be painted earlier. A wide-brimmed hat or baseball cap can save you from all these troubles.
Go to bed early
Why do they say that “one hour of sleep before 12 at night is equal to two hours of sleep after 12,” and beauticians call sleep at this time a “dream of beauty”? This is because, from about 10 p.m., regenerative processes begin in the body. Damaged tissues and cells are restored. Sleep is the main means to restore the skin after ultraviolet radiation and to prevent its inflammation. During sleep, the body produces more protein, which is the building material for all cells, muscles, and hair.
