Everyone has something about their skin they wish they could change – maybe you have been noticing more wrinkles lately, or maybe your face is that annoying combination of oily and dry. A dermatologist can help you with acne treatment or other services, but it is always a good idea to take good care of your skin. Here are some things you can do everyday!
Wash your face twice a day
This may seem obvious, but it is also one of those things that can be easy to skip after a hard day. Don’t! Wash your face every morning and every night to get rid of dirt and oil to keep pores from getting clogged, which makes skin look dull and can lead to more serious issues. Do a deep cleanse once a week to really get rid of any stubborn oil and dirt.
Hydrate and moisturize
Showers and baths that are too hot make skin dry and itchy by removing oils. Keep the water warm, not hot, and don’t forget to use a quality moisturizer afterwards.
And don’t forget to drink a lot of water throughout the day! It’s not just good for your overall health – it helps your skin to look and feel fresh, and it keeps skin from drying out.
Don’t forget the sunscreen
The sun’s rays can do damage even when it is a cloudy day. It not only causes skin cancer, but it can give you deep wrinkles and change the color and texture of your skin. Wear sunscreeen everytime you go outside.
Take care of your health
And if you needed one more reason to stop smoking, here’s one more: smoking can lead to deep wrinkles, poor skin tone, and sagging skin.
Another tip that is good for your overall health as well as your skin is to eat foods that are rich in polyphenols, which are antioxidants that help protect the skin from damage. Foods that have a lot of polyphenols include berries, grapes, pecans, and walnuts.
