The skin health benefits of Silica
We all aspire to look and feel our best, but this can be difficult when our skin is not in good condition. It isn't just about appearances; our skin also performs several vital health functions. So how can we keep it in tip-top condition?
Why healthy skin matters
Health functions our skin performs include:
- Protecting us from potentially harmful environmental factors such as UV rays, germs and pollution
- Retaining moisture to assist with hydrating our bodies
- Regulating our body temperature
- Assisting in repairing damage in our bodies by replenishing cells.
However, many of us suffer problems with our skin. These can include the effects of ageing, chemical factors that make our skin oily or dry, or more complex skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Problem skin can cause us confidence problems, and in some cases, discomfort as well.
Ways to improve skin health
Protecting our skin from the sun, stopping smoking and reducing stress all impact positively on both our skin's appearance and its ability to function. It is also vitally important to establish a regular, thorough skincare routine. Washing in lukewarm rather than hot water helps to prevent dehydration. Patting rather than rubbing your skin dry reduces the risk of irritation. It is also important to moisturise as soon as you can after cleansing to lock in the maximum amount of moisture. All products used on your skin should be gentle. Ideally, they should contain ingredients that assist in replenishing the natural components of your skin. One such component currently being explored in skincare is silica.
Silica healthy skin products
Silica is a mineral known to assist in the production of collagen, the protein that keeps our skin supple and youthful. As we age, our silica levels deplete, which is why skincare products containing silica can assist in healthier, more youthful-looking skin. Here at Sönd we have a range of skincare products for all skin types, containing silica. Complemented by Sönd's Energising Mineral Supplements, these products help to boost your silica levels inside and out, where we look to achieve stronger, younger-looking, more hydrated skin.
For those wishing to discover more about the effects of silica healthy skin products, we offer a starter kit containing all the necessary ingredients for a silica-rich skincare routine.
