Maintaining Clear, Healthy Skin
We all want to look our best and having clear, healthy skin is essential to happiness. While choosing the right skin care products for your particular skin type will help, a few simple lifestyle choices can have an even more significant impact on keeping your skin looking great.
Smoke and Sun
Smoking and over exposure to the sun are two of the biggest threats to healthy, glowing skin. Studies suggest that smoking can cause premature wrinkling, increase fine lines and even darken lips. Quitting smoking now will not only help you avoid its well-known health risks, but will contribute to keeping your skin in top condition.
Over exposure to the rays of the sun can have a negative affect on your skin’s appearance in the same way as aging and smoking. It is recommended you apply sun creams and lotions with UV protection before going outdoors, even when it’s cloudy or overcast. For additional protection, consider wearing wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses.
It’s important to gently clean your skin frequently to remove dirt and bacteria. At the end of the day, remove all make up, gently cleanse your face and apply moisturizer. Avoid using too many products and make sure to find the ones that are right for your skin.
Sleep and Diet
Getting a good night’s sleep and eating healthy foods can both influence how your skin looks and feels. Sure, we all have the occasional late night out and junk food craving, but keeping them to a minimum will help you keep your skin feeling fresh and healthy.
From reducing stress in our lives to taking extra care when shaving, there are many other things we can do to keep our skin looking clear and healthy.
