Ions and Your Skin – Who Knew?

Did You Know That The Ions In Your Environment Affect The Appearance Of Your Skin?

In a natural, clean outdoor environment there is a balance between negative (good) ions and positive (bad) ions. But when you turn to enclosed spaces, it becomes a completely different story.

path When you look at indoor environments that contain computers, monitors, printers, and other devices the balance of negative and positive ions is thrown out of whack. Negative ions are depleted which can lead to headaches, allergies, lethargy, and poor  looking skin.

Research has shown that negative ions actually improve the functioning of skin cell membranes, help deliver oxygen to the cells and tissue, and increase the production of collagen.  Therefore, you want to expose your skin to an environment that has a healthy balance of negative and positive ions.

It’s a great excuse to get out into the fresh outdoors as much as possible so that you and your skin are exposed to more negative ions and can benefit from their positive affects on your health and skin. If you are stuck indoors more than you like, you may want to look into getting an ionizer from a reputable company so that you and your skin are exposed to an equal balance of negative and positive ions.
