Skin Care Habits For Youthful Clear Skin
For one thing, avoid being out and about during rush hour, when pollutants are at their highest levels. People in big cities like Manhattan, LA, Toronto, and such should save their walks or run their errands after or before all the exhaust peaks. Also, beware of weather condition. Very cold and windy days call for shielding the face from these elements that dry skin, or worse.
Luckily, according to the experts, there are plenty of things you can do to combat these affects and keep your skin healthy and looking good. Here are some things experts recommend you do in 2016 to care for your skin.
Use Natural Products
Everyone has blemishes , skin tags, moles and other unwanted issues. Slathering in chemicals is not the best way to combat them. Even a dermatologist will often try to find a natural remedy for a problem before resorting to chemical treatments or surgeries.
So, before you attack that skin tag with something that might do more harm than good, try a natural skin tag removal product or a facial cleanser you’ve made yourself from natural ingredients. Then, if these options don’t provide any sort of improvements, talk to your dermatologist about taking a more radical approach.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Drinking water is vital to your overall health, which you probably already know this. You know that you’re supposed to drink 6-8 glasses of water a day. Unfortunately, many mistake water we get from our coffees, sodas, juices and foods to be enough to meet this requirement. It isn’t. In fact, relying on sugary or caffeinated beverages for your water intake is the worst thing for your skin. Carry a water bottle with you and take a sip whenever you’re thirsty. You’ll be surprised by how quickly you can phase out those other drinks when you do this. Soon after, you’ll probably start seeing your skin improve.
Water outside of the body is just as inside the body. Regular showers with mild soaps and shampoos are very important for keeping your skin healthy and looking good. In addition to the usual morning shower that you take before work, try to get into the habit of at least rinsing off and putting a small amount of body lotion on at bedtime. Follow through with a good facial skin care routine that includes a moisturizer.
The sun is your skin’s worst enemy. But, Vitamin D is still essential, so keep that in mind. Skin cancer can be treatable, sure, but it is better to keep it from happening in the first place. Wear sunscreen every day–in all types of weather! Choose a moisturizer or a foundation that has sunscreen in it to avoid that greasy feeling associated with sunscreen lotions, and save time too.
It’s also important to literally cover up with clothing. Clothing stops the sun from hitting your skin in the first place. And, during the winter months can protect your skin against harsh weather conditions that can cause some serious damage. During the summer, you are unlikely to want to layer on the clothing but carrying a parasol (or even an umbrella) is a good way to keep the sun off of your skin.
Science proves again and again, as does history, that regular exercise can help improve skin tone, collagen production, and a number of other factors that keep your skin healthy and beautiful. It’s a good mental health booster, too.
These tips seem pretty basic because, according to the experts, the best way to maintain healthy skin is to lead a healthy lifestyle.
