Ways to Bring Down Your Blood Pressure


Many people can have high blood pressure for years without any symptoms. The only way to know if your blood pressure is too high is through regular checkups, which is why annual physicals are so important, no matter your age.High blood pressure, not heart attack or stroke, is the most common cardiovascular disease. If left untreated, it can lead to serious consequences and possibly death.Your blood pressure is represented by two numbers, the systolic (the top number) and diastolic (the bottom number). These numbers are determined both by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure.When your heart beats, it squeezes and pushes blood through your arteries to the rest of your body. This force creates pressure on those blood vessels, which is the systolic blood pressure.
  • A normal systolic pressure is below 120.
  • A reading of 120-129 is elevated.
  • 130-139 is stage 1 high blood pressure (also called hypertension).
  • 140 or more is stage 2 hypertension.
  • 180 or more could be a hypertensive crisis and you should call your doctor right away.


The diastolic reading, or bottom number, is the pressure in the arteries when the heart rests between beats. This is when the heart fills with blood and gets oxygen.
  • A normal diastolic blood pressure is lower than 80, but even if your diastolic number is below 80, you can still have high blood pressure if the systolic reading is 120-129.
  • 80-89 is stage 1 hypertension.
  • 90 or more is stage 2 hypertension.
  • 120 or more is a hypertensive crisis and you should call 911 right away.

If you can successfully control your blood pressure with a healthy lifestyle, you may avoid, delay or reduce the need for medication and hopefully prolong your life. Here are important lifestyle changes you can make to lower your blood pressure and keep it down.

Lose extra pounds and watch your waistline
Weight loss is one of the best ways to control blood pressure. Losing just 10 pounds can help bring it down. But as well as shedding pounds, you also need to keep an eye on your waistline. Carrying too much weight around your waist can put you at greater risk of high blood pressure.

Exercise regularly
Regular physical activity—at least 30 minutes several days a week—can lower your blood pressure significantly. It’s important to be consistent because if you stop exercising, your blood pressure can rise again.

Limit alcohol
If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation. One drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor.

Quit smoking
Each cigarette you smoke increases your blood pressure for several minutes after you finish. The good news: quitting smoking helps your blood pressure return to normal. People who quit smoking, regardless of age, have substantial increases in life expectancy.

Reduce your stress
Chronic stress is a major contributor to high blood pressure, particularly if you react to stress by eating unhealthy food, drinking or smoking.

For people with dry skin, sometimes just using a moisturiser isn’t enough, no matter how nourishing the ingredients are.That’s why we’ve put together some little-known tips and tricks to give you the edge against skin dryness. You will also discover some natural and organic skin care recommendations, which are trusted by thousands of people to care for their dry skin.


Improve your skin from within: It’s not just what you drink that helps to keep your skin hydrated. You can also supplement your diet to help maintain your skin’s natural moisture levels. Naturally occurringfoods such as oily fish, flax seeds and hemp seeds, and contain high levels of beneficial fatty acids proven to reduce inflammation in the skin and help to prevent trans epidermal water loss (TEWL), keeping your skin hydration levels in check.

Scrubs aren’t just for oily skin: For those who believe that exfoliating is just for oily or blemish-prone skin, you may be missing a trick. While scrubs are great for unblocking pores and reducing spots, regular exfoliation is also essential for people with dry skin. Gentle exfoliation 2-3 times a week helps to speed up cell turnover, increase skin radiance and boost the absorption and effectiveness of your moisturisers, oils and serums.Natural Bamboo extract, Bentonite clay and Pineapple enzymes slough off dead, dull and dry skin cells to reveal a smooth, glowing complexion.


How to layer your skin care: When applied incorrectly, even the most luxurious skin care products will be partly wasted and unable to deliver their full potential. While it may sound daunting to learn the best order in which to apply your oils, serums and creams, it couldn’t be simpler.Always apply your hydrating serum or moisturiser before your facial oil. Think of facials oil as outerwear for your skin; you wouldn’t wear your raincoat under a t-shirt and it’s the same for facial oils. Organic oils work as a nourishing, protective layer in your skin care regime and should be used as the last step to seal in all the goodness and moisture from your other products. Skin care products applied over a facial oil will be partly wasted as the oil acts as a barrier.

Act fast to lock in moisture: Your skin starts to lose moisture just 30 seconds after showering, so lock in hydration by moisturising as soon as possible. Before you leave the bathroom, gently pat your face dry and then follow with a serum or moisturiser, next apply a few drops of facial oil to seal in as much hydration as possible.f you suffer with dry skin on your arms, legs or torso, the same applies for using a hydrating body lotion or nourishing body butter.

Exercise: Exercise gets your blood flowing, oxygenating, and moisturising your skin as you burn those calories. Even a simple run can work wonders for not only your dry skin, but the health of your skin in general.

Sleep Well: Lack of sleep doesn’t only make you yawn at the worst of times, but it also makes your skin more sensitive and prone to dryness. Growth hormones that reproduce skin cells and stimulate the skin are released during the latter stages of sleep, making our skin healthier while we basically do nothing.

Don’t take hot showers or baths: Hot water is not a friend to your dry skin as it breaks down the lipid barriers in the skin, which decreases moisture. To help dry skin, take shorter showers using warm water.
