As we get older our skin begin to tell a story. The time we spent out enjoying summers in the sun,
trying times of puberty and even the physical evidence of a life well lived. Our skin is the first
thing people see and unfortunately our wrinkles, texture and sunspots can be a quick judgment of
our age. In addition, most women will tell you that their confidence is impacted by how their
skin looks. You might often wonder how you can have healthy, glowing skin without putting yourself through invasive and potentially dangerous procedures or adopting a complicated skincare routine. Thankfully, there are bunch of options, but these are my top ones..
1. Use Sunscreen EVERYDAY!
Many people think that using sunscreen is only necessary on beach days and times when you’ll be outside for extended periods of time. In reality, 80% of ournskin again comes from the sun, so sunscreen should be a daily part of your skincare routine, especially if you’re concerned about keeping your skin looking young. While sunscreen does help protect you from skin cancer and sunburns, it also helps your skin maintain moisture and elasticity. Both of these help prevent or minimize the appearance of wrinkles and give you a healthy glow.
2. Moisture, moisture, moisture!
Dry skin is more than just a minor irriation. Dry skin is something that can dramatically impact your skin health. By taking steps to avoid dry everyday, moisturized skin is a great way to enjoy a more youthful complexion and avoid the uncomfortable feeling dryness can bring. The first step is for you, or your aesthetician, to
determine the cause of your dry skin, so you learn the best way to address it. Knowing whether it’s a treatable skin condition like eczema, roscea, or a result of a dry climate helps you treat the problem appropriately. Once you know the cause, taking steps like using facial oils, serums and moisturizers in your daily routine can help maintain your youthful glow.
Aging skin paired with blackheads, acne, or other common skin issues is even more challenging to work with than just aging skin. Taking the time to exfoliate is a great way to help prevent oil and dead skin buildup that can lead to some of these issues. Chemical and physcial exfoliation also helps get rid of dead skin on your face and leaves your face smoother, brighter and clearer than ever before. At our clinic we do monthly dermaplaning and chemical peeling to help with skin cell turnover and keep your skin nicely exfoliated to help keep your pores clean and your skincare working better.
One easy thing you can do to improve skin health and overall health is drinking more water. Chances are you don’t drink enough now, so making it a habit to drink more can do wonders for your skin. Hydration is crucial if you want your skin to look fresh and healthy. Being dehydrated can cause your skin to look dry, cracked, and dull, so if you notice these issues, it might be that you aren’t drinking enough.
5. Get Enough Sleep
Getting more sleep is another way you can improve your body’s health while also significantly impacting your skin. You’ve likely noticed when you don’t sleep enough, you get puffy under the eyes or have a more dull complexion. This is because while you sleep, your body works hard to increase collagen production and blood flow, both of which help your skin improve. When you don’t get enough sleep, you lose out on these benefits and might also experience higher stress levels and inflammation.
6. Use an Eye Cream
Using an eye cream helps reduce the
appearance of a variety of issues, including puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, and other problems. Because the skin under your eyes is so thin, this area is prone to skin concerns that might lead you to look older than you truly are. So addressing this particular area of your face alone is an excellent way to look younger without much extra effort. All you need to do is find the right eye cream!
At times, taking care of your skin is more about what you put inside your body than what you put
on it. Knowing what to eat for healthy skin helps you provide your body with the nutrients necessary to promote healthy skin from the inside out. So what should you do? First, try focusing on adding specific foods rather than
cutting any foods out. That’s more sustainable than trying a particular diet that might be difficult to keep up with. Along with diet, IV therapy is a great option to ensure you are getting 100% of the essential nutrients in your body to maintain that healthy complexion.
