Why Your Immune System is so Important for Healthy Skin & How to Boost it | BodyCo

In a world with COVID-19, I am sure a lot of us have been hearing talk about boosting our immunity.

This is (obviously) for our health, but it is also important for our skin! 

A quick way to explain this is that immunity has a protective role against diseases & ageing and the skin reacts to infections. The skin serves as an immediate defence against 'nasties' trying to get into our bodies and attack our immune systems. 

A major reason for ageing, is when UV rays enter the body through the skin and interfere with our DNA, which effects our immunity. This is why it is so important for us to wear SUN PROTECTION every day, to help the skin fight against these UV rays.

However, It also works the other way around. The body (/immune system) needs to absorb antioxidants, for example, Vitamin D, in order to boost its immunity, and allow the skin to continue to protect it the best it can. 

How To Boost Your Immune System (& Skin Health).

  • UV/ Sun Protection every single day is a great place to start. We have a natural, physical sun blocker - our Sun Serum, which protects your skin from sun damage (like slowing the signs of ageing).
  • Eat your fruits and vegetables. You know what they say, an apple a day keeps the doctor away! All those vitamins & nutrients help boost your immunity, and the antioxidants help the skin to fight free radical damage (and slow the signs of ageing).
  • Regularly exercise and maintain a healthy weight. Exercise is a great way to increase blood flow and get oxygen and nutrients to the cells, helping them to rid of waste. 
  • Get enough sleep every night. Sleep is so important to keep the body functioning at its best.

These are just some ways to help your skin help keep your body safe. 

Much love,

xx
