Healthy Living Can Promote Healthy Skin!

December 1, 2012

Our lifestyles have a direct effect on every aspect of our health. Sometimes we only think about our heart health or maybe even our weight, but we also need to think about our skin just as much as we think about other parts of our bodies. Here are some tips to ensure your lifestyle isn’t having a negative effect on your skin.

Sunlight is good for us. It provides vitamin D and also boots our mental health. However, just like anything else, too much of anything is a bad thing. Sunlight ages our skin, and daily exposure without sufficient protection can cause serious problems. Skin care experts recommend using a lotion that has an SPF of 15 (minimum, but more is better!). This will also protect your skin from developing age spots, wrinkles and other signs of sun damage. And don’t think SPF is just for the summer. It is important to wear SPF in every season.

While SPF is important, keeping your skin hydrated is just as important. Drinking water will keep your entire body healthy by flushing out toxins and will also keep your skin hydrated. After you drink a bottle of water, don’t forget to apply moisturizer. This will keep your skin plum and reduce the appearance of lines and creases.

No one wants wrinkles, but unfortunately unless you’re some kind of freak of nature, you will develop them. Using anti-wrinkle serum will boost your skin’s collagen and help minimize the development of these unwanted lines. Wrinkles and fine lines often develop first around the eyes and mouth, so look for creams designed specifically for these areas. Eye creams applied in the winter should be made of a heavier cream and during the summer all you need is a light gel or serum. Try wearing sunglasses to reduce squinting which often leads to these fine lines.

By choosing positive lifestyles choices that include beneficial skin care practices, you’ll keep your skin looking youthful and healthy for many years to come!
