Skin is the body’s largest organ. When healthy, its layers work hard to protect us. But when it’s compromised, the skin’s ability to work as an effective barrier is impaired. Our skin is the window to our body that reveals the stories of our life. From acne breakouts during our teenage years to the radiant glow of pregnancy and the sunspots of aging, both our age and our health are reflected in our skin. Here is 3 tips for healthy skin.
- Wash Your Face Twice a Day
It’s best to wash our face twice a day. In the morning, cleanse to remove sweat and oil from overnight. In the evenings, it’s important to cleanse our face and remove any makeup, plus dirt and impurities that have gathered throughout the day. Make a facial cleanser part of your wake-up and night-time skin care routines.
- Do Not Skip The Sunscreen
One of the most important ways to take care of our skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems as well as increase the risk of skin cancer. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. Apply sunscreen generously, and reapply every two hours or more often if you’re swimming or perspiring. Sunscreen will protect our skin from UV Rays. The depletion of the ozone layer has increased our risk of sun damage from harmful UV rays. Sunscreen blocks these rays, greatly reducing the likelihood of sunburn. It also prevents premature aging of the skin. Sun damage from UV rays causes photo aging of the skin, which is characterized by a thick, leathery look, discoloration, and a breakdown of collagen, which contributes to lines, sagging and wrinkles. Sunscreen helps maintain an even Skin Tone. Sunscreen helps prevent discoloration and dark spots from sun damage, helping you maintain a smoother and more even skin tone. By applying sunscreen each day, we cut our risk of contracting skin cancer in half.
- Eat a Balanced and Healthy Diet
A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. The association between diet and acne isn’t clear but some research suggests that a diet rich in fish oil or fish oil supplements and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin. Drinking plenty of water helps keep your skin hydrated.
