As we grow older there is bound to be a significant amount of wear and tear on our skin, however there are certain practices that we can take into consideration which can help us maintain a healthy and glowing skin for years and years to come.
Specific Care for Each Skin Type
Here is what most people get wrong, not all skins are one and the same and hence not every product is going to work on their skin. For e.g. if you have an oily skin ensure that you have the appropriate products to deal with it. I found this out the hard way as I have a pretty dry skin, and if it was not for the intervention of the Dermatologist at Inverness dermatology I would have had a puffy face due to the incorrect application of dermal fillers.
Protect your Skin from the Sun
This is possibly the most essential part. You need to ensure that you take your face every day with a sunscreen of SPF 30. Do this even when there is little to no sunlight as the ultraviolet rays emanating from the clouds can still damage your skin.
Now here is something that you need to be extra careful with, I have seen too many girls applying plethora of makeup to look ravishing. Yet they do not give a thought to what happens to their real skin in the process, as no matter how expensive the product is it will still damage your skin to a certain extent, and hence I advise all girls to limit the use of their makeup.
Stay Hydrated and Moisturize
Drinking lots and lots of water daily helps keep your skin fresh and supple. Your skin also needs its nutrients so always keep a moisturizer nearby as they lock in the moisture present in the skin, and hence keep your skin hydrated for long periods of time.
Gentle Cleansing in Makeup Removal
Taking care of sensitive skin begins by removing makeup. In order to ensure that you do not cause enough stress on your skin, ensure that you use pH neutral makeup remover.
Water is just not good enough, many a times I have seen people with a multitude of blackheads on their skin, and they are usually unaware by their presence. When cleaning, your skin ensure that you do it gently and with a liquid face cleanser that suits you. Avoid soaps at all costs as they have an alkaline base and it can do your skin more harm than good.
Eat Right and Get a Good Night’s Sleep
It’s not rocket science that eating right has a multitude of health benefits. Eat foods which are rich in Vitamin A and C. Also, ensure that you have at least 8 hours of sleep daily, to ensure that wrinkles on your skin do not appear for the foreseeable future.
There you have it these are simple tips which you can incorporate in your daily routines to have a healthy and glowing skin.
