Keeping your skin healthy is one of the easiest ways to improve your appearance and look younger. Here are six easy ways to get better skin:
- Wear Sunscreen
Sun damage causes wrinkles, sunspots, and skin cancer. Too much sun exposure can make your skin dry and tough and leave you looking older than you are.
You don’t have to stay cooped up inside, just wear sunscreen whenever you go out. For best results use sunscreen with a high SPF, apply it 30 minutes before you go outside, and reapply it every 1-2 hours.
For extra protection, wear sunglasses so you don’t squint and wear a hat to shade your face.
- Wash Your Face Before Bed
Makeup can improve your appearance, highlight your favorite features, and even protect your skin from dirt, but leaving it on while you sleep can spread germs, clog your pores, and cause acne. Wash your face every evening before you go to bed and apply an anti-aging night cream.
- Keep Your Skin Hydrated
Keeping your skin hydrated helps it stay healthy and strong. Drink plenty of water throughout the day and apply moisturizer every morning after you wash your face. This will keep your skin healthy, but it will also help you look younger.
- Eat Foods That Nourish Your Skin
Foods with the right nutrients keep your skin healthy and young. Look for foods with Vitamin E, antioxidants, unsaturated fats, and vitamin C.Some foods that are good for your skin include:
• Green tea
• Red, green, and yellow peppers
• Sunflower seeds
- Exercise Daily
Regular exercise keeps blood circulating through your body, which is good for your skin. Exercise also makes you sweat, which helps your body remove toxins and chemicals that can damage your skin. Find something to do every day that works up a sweat whether it is yoga, running, boxing, or dancing.
- Try Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sunspots, and acne scars. To learn more about this option, schedule an appointment with Dr. Richard D’Amico. There are multiple laser resurfacing options available—a doctor can help you decide which option is best for your skin and your lifestyle.
