Carefree days and healthy skin in summer // V poletne dni z zdravo kožo in brez skrbi

Summer and the long-awaited holidays in the embrace of the sea and the sun are finally here. Although Summertime refers to a time of relaxation, fun and joy, we must not forget on our health. Of particular importance is the care of our skin, which is most exposed to the sun’s rays at this time of year. Here’s one interesting fact – human skin is the largest organ of our body, representing about 16% of the toal body weight with an area of ​​1.5 to 2 square meters.
So what can we do to keep our skin beautiful, toned, undamaged and healthy? Here are some good tips for you in continuation.

Sleep – a potion of beauty

Poor sleep, which is often the result of stress and shorter nights at the expense of summer parties, are not only reflected in feeling weak and reduced activity the next day. The consequences of insomnia appear also on the skin. Dark circles and wrinkles caused by short nights can be easily avoided if you simply just get enough sleep. Sometimes this represents quite a hard nut to crack, but there are products which help in situations like that. One example are products with CBD or cannabidiol. CBD is a natural substance obtained from an industrial hemp. We have already written about several beneficial effects of CBD in previous blogs, among which an improved sleep was one of the most common.

Nutrition – care for beauty from the inside out

Skin, hair and nails are a mirror of the state of our body which is primarily related to our daily diet and adequate fluid intake. If you don’t drink enough water, which is especially common in the Summer, then your body quickly becomes dehydrated. The result of dehydration is a dry and thin skin. That is why it is highly recommended to regularly change some sweet drinks and coffee with a glass of water.
In addition to water, your daily diet also has a significant impact on your health and appearance. Make sure your diet includes as many fruits and vegetables as possible. These contain many antioxidants such as vitamins and minerals. An important source of antioxidants are also dietary supplements, which, protect cells in the skin from damage induced by an increased production of radicals in the sun. Among the most common antioxidants is vitamin C, which is also indispensable for the growth of connective tissue from collagen in the skin and helps maintaining skin elasticity. This is very important especially for a tanned body skin, as sunburned skin loses elasticity faster.
Adequate zinc intake is also important for a beautiful and healthy appearance. Zinc plays an important role in the growth and development of the body and contributes to maintaining healthy bones, vision, hair, nails and skin. It also plays an important role in the treatment of wounds, especially (sun)burns, certain ulcers and other skin injuries. Zinc replacement is important for vegetarians, whose diet contains more phytic acid, which limits the bioavailability of zinc, which can increase the need for zinc intake by as much as 50%.

Body peeling

A quick and easy recipe for beautiful and radiant skin is also a gentle body scrub in the summer months. Exfoliate dead cells and old skin – you can use a few sachets of The High Life Protective Elixir 01 and dissolve them in a small amount of water. Apply the product onto your body with gentle circular motions and then rinse with water. After use do not forget to use a moisturizing cream or body lotion that will nourish and moisturize the cleansed skin.

Be active, but only in the mornings and evenings

Physical activity is extremely important for general well-being. At the same time, your skin will be grateful to you when you do some sports, as sweating accelerates the excretion of many toxins from the body. Simultanously, with better blood circulation during physical activity, you also revitalize your skin.
It is important for physical activity (as well as lying on the beach) to avoid direct sunlight as much as possible, especially in the middle of the day, when the sun’s rays are the strongest and when the outside temperature is the highest. We recommend to go for a run early in the morning before work, and spend a sea holiday on a deck chair in natural shade, with sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses as a mandatory equipment.

In short, the guidelines for maintaining well-being and beautiful healthy skin in the Summer are as follows:

⎯ Take enough time to rest and exercise regularly in the morning or evening,
⎯ Avoid the sun’s raays between 11 am and 4 pm,
⎯ Always wear protective clothing, hat and sunglasses,
⎯ Regularly use sunscreen with a protection factor of 30 or more,
⎯ Drink enough fluids; water is the best option,
⎯ Enjoy products with a strong antioxidant effect, such as foods with vitamin C and zinc, which help reduce skin damage.

We also advise you to use high-quality products that invigorate and soften your skin, deeply moisturize it, protect it from free radicals and supply it with everything that maintains its elasticity. Sail into the summer days – with THE HIGH LIFE products and no worries.



Poletje je tu, z njim pa dolgo pričakovani dopusti v objemu morja in sonca. Čeprav je poletje čas sprostitve, zabave in užitkov, je prav da ob tem ne pozabimo na naše zdravje. Še posebej pomembna je skrb za našo kožo, ki je v tem letnem času najbolj izpostavljena sončnim žarkom. Kot zanimivost – človeška koža je največji organ našega telesa, ki predstavlja približno 16 % telesne teže s površino 1,5 do 2 kvadratna metra.
In kaj lahko storimo, da ohranimo našo kožo lepo, napeto, nepoškodovano in zdravo? Nekaj dobrih nasvetov delimo z vami v nadaljevanju. 

Spanec – napoj lepote

Slab spanec, ki je pogosto posledica stresa ter krajše noči na račun poletnih zabav se ne odražajo le v slabem počutju in zmanjšani aktivnosti naslednji dan pač pa se znaki neprespanosti odražajo tudi na koži. Podočnjakom in gubicam, ki so posledica prekratkih noči se zlahka lahko izognete, če le poskrbite za dovolj spanca. Včasih je to precej trd oreh, kjer pa vam lahko pomagajo izdelki s CBD-jem oziroma kanabidiolom. CBD je naravna snov, ki jo pridobivamo iz industrijske konoplje. O številnih pozitivnih učinkih smo sicer že pisali v preteklih blogih, je pa uporaba CBD-ja zelo razširjena predvsem pri ljudeh, ki imajo težave s stresom in spanjem. 

Prehrana – skrb za lepoto od znotraj navzven

Koža, lasje in nohti so zrcalo stanja našega telesa. Ravno stanje našega telesa pa je primarno povezano z našo vsakdanjo prehrano in dovoljšnim vnosom tekočine. Če pijete premalo vode, kar je še posebej pogosto v poletnih časih, potem kaj hitro telo postane dehidrirano – to pa se kaže kot suha, pusta koža. Zato je zelo pomembno, da kakšno sladko pijačo in kavo redno menjate s kozarcem vode.
Poleg vode na vaše zdravje in izgled pomembno vpliva tudi vsakodnevna prehrana. Poskrbite, da bo vaš jedilnik vseboval čim več sadja in zelenjave, ki vsebujejo poleg vode tudi številne antiksidante – vitamine in minerale. Pomemben vir tovrstnih antioksidantov so tudi prehranska dopolnila, ki ob povečanem nastajanju radikalov pri sončenju (ki nastajajo ob sevanju UVB-žarkov), ščitijo celice v koži pred poškodbami. Med najbolj pogoste antioksidante uvrščamo vsem znani vitamin C, ki je nepogrešljiv tudi za rast veznega tkiva iz kolagena v koži in pomaga ohraniti elastičnost kože. To pa je pri zagorelem telesu izjemnega pomena, saj od sonca zagorela koža hitreje izgublja elastičnost ter postane bolj suha.
Za lep in zdrav videz je pomemben tudi dovoljšen vnos cinka, ki ima pomembno vlogo pri rasti in razvoju telesa ter prispeva k ohranjanju zdravih kosti, vida, las, nohtov in kože. Pomembno vlogo igra tudi pri zdravljenju ran, zlasti opeklin, določenih razjed in drugih kožnih poškodb. Nadomeščanje cinka je še posebej pomembno pri vegetarijancih, katerih prehrana vsebuje več fitinske kisline, ki pa omejuje biorazpoložljivost cinka, zaradi česar se potrebe po vnosu cinka lahko povečajo celo za 50 %. 

Piling telesa 

Hiter in preprost recept za lepo in sijočo kožo je v poletnih mesecih tudi nežen piling telesa. S pilingom odstranite odmrle celice in staro kožo – v ta namen lahko uporabite nekaj vrečic Zaščitnega eliksirja 01 podjetja The High Life, ki jih raztopite v manjši količini vode. Zmes z nežnimi krožnimi gibi nanesite na vaše telo in jo nato sperite z vodo. Po uporabi seveda ne pozabite na vlažilno negovalno kremo, ki bo očiščeno kožo nahranila in navlažila. 

Gibanje, a poleti le zjutraj in zvečer

Za splošno počutje je gibanje in telesna aktivnost izjemnega pomena. Hkrati vam bo hvaležna tudi vaša koža saj se z znojenjem pospešeno izločajo iz telesa številni toksini, hkrati pa z boljšo prekrvavljenostjo med telesno aktivnostjo poživite tudi vašo kožo.
Pomembno pri telesni aktivnosti (pa tudi poležavanju na plaži) je, da se čimbolj izogibate direktnemu soncu, še posebej v sredini dneva, ko so sončni žarki najmočnejši in ko je zunanja temperatura najvišja. Tek priporočamo zgodaj zjutraj pred službo, morski oddih pa preživite na ležalniku v naravni senci, kjer naj bodo krema za sončenje, klobuk in sončna očala obvezna oprema. 

Če na kratko povzamemo – napotki za ohranjanje dobrega počutja ter lepe in zdrave kože v poletnih dneh so torej sledeči:

Dovolj časa namenite počitku in redno se gibajte zjutraj ali zvečer,
Izogibajte se sončnim žarkom med 11. in 16. uro,
Vedno uporabljajte zaščitna oblačila, pokrivala ter sončna očala,
Redno uporabljajte kremo za sončenje z zaščitnim faktorjem 30 ali več,
Pijte dovolj tekočine, najprimernejša je voda,
Uživajte snovi z močnim antioksidativnim učinkom, kot sta vitamin C ter cink, ki prispevata k zmanjšanju poškodb kože.

Svetujemo vam tudi, da uporabljate kakovostne in preverjene izdelke, ki vašo kožo poživijo in omehčajo, jo globinsko navlažijo, varujejo pred prostimi radikali ter oskrbujejo z vsem, kar ji ohranja elastičnost. Zajadrajte v poletne dni – brez skrbi in z izdelki THE HIGH LIFE.
