Beauty secret #1 Staying Positive
Aishwarya believes that our deepest thoughts can be reflected on our face therefore she suggest staying positive is very important.
Having a positive attitude in life can help us maintain a healthy body and it will surely reflect on the skin too. According to Mayo Clinic positive thinking can have a favorable effect on one's health. Some benefits of positive thinking may be: increased life span, psychological/physical well-being and ability to cope better during times of stress just to mention a few. If staying positive can help the body deal better with stress then the skin will benefit from it too, as various studies have suggested that stress can have a negative effect on skin.
Beauty secret #2 Staying Hydrated
Aishwarya believes staying hydrated is a must for beautiful skin and makes sure she drinks at least 10 glasses of water every day as she says it also help detoxify the body. Aishwarya believes drinking plenty of water each day can provide benefits not only to the skin but also for hair. Lets see what studies suggest about the benefits of drinking water.
Although it has been scientifically proved that drinking 8-10 glasses of water has no proven benefits, drinking water does help in certain ways. According to the WebMd website there are 6 top reasons to keep consuming water on a regular basis. One of the reasons mentioned is that water helps skin look good, having in consideration that over hydration is not going to erase wrinkles. When the skin is dehydrated it will look dry and wrinkled, but staying hydrated from within can improve skins appearance.
Beauty secret # 3 Avoiding fast foods, smoking and drinking
Fast food can affect skin in a negative way. When we eat fast food a process called Glycation occurs in the body.When this process takes place it can cause the skin visible signs of aging, but what is glycation? A sugar molecule bonding to a protein with no enzyme present. Basically the result of glycation includes: fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and uneven skin tone. Source:Blog.Perricone.
Smoking can cause the skin to age much faster there are also visible changes in the skin, teeth and hair. Smoking excessively doesn't let the skin receive the oxygen and nutrients it needs to stay healthy and vibrant. What is truly shocking is that Tobacco smoke contains more than 4,000 chemicals, which all contribute to the destruction of both collagen and elastin (source:WebMD) Check the previous link for more information and a slideshow on the effects of smoking on the skin.
Drinking too much alcohol can have an adverse effect on the skin. Drinking excessively can cause dehydration in the body and affect the skin making it look dry and even more wrinkled.
