Protect Skin from the Sun
From experience, one of the most important tips in keeping your skin healthy is to ensure that you get good quality sun protection.
Whether that protection is in the form of hats, sunglasses, clothing or in quality SPF sun care lotions, any money that is spent now on protecting your skin from the sun will pay dividends in the years to come.
All manner of skin complaints from premature wrinkles, ageing to skin cancer can be caused by overexposure to the sun.
It is also important that you should always drink sufficient water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated. Not only will your overall health improve but so will the condition of your skin.
While drinking water will ensure that you remain hydrated your skin can become dry due to various external factors such as working in air-conditioned offices. It is therefore important to also use a good moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated at all times.
Skin Care and Sleep
As well as being essential elements for good health, sleep and exercise also play an essential role in maintaining healthy skin. If you’re not getting enough sleep you can expect to see wrinkles appearing sooner along with dark areas under your eyes.
Keeping Skin Clean and Healthy
Cleanse your skin at least once or twice a day to ensure that any dead skin cells are removed from the surface of the skin and the pores don’t become blocked.
Always choose the best products for your skin as you only get one chance to take care of it and it has the last you a lifetime. Choosing the right products can make a big difference between looking 10 years younger in the future or looking older than you actually are.
Many of the choices that you make throughout your life and even those that are made for you as a child will determine the condition of your skin as you age.
While nobody can be expected to know too much about skin care as children, there is no time like the present to start taking care of your skin.
By staying out of the sun wherever possible, refraining from smoking and staying away from areas where second-hand smoke is present, we all have the opportunity to know that what we do now will have a bearing on the condition and the maintenance of our skin as we age.
