Nobody wants to have dry or oily skin, or skin that is covered with blemishes, wrinkles, or spots. There are all types of things that can negatively impact the health of your skin, including pollutants, sun damage, stress, and poor nutrition. The good news is that you can maintain healthy skin by simply doing a few easy things mentioned below.
Stay Protected Against The Sun
Spending long periods of time outside in the sun with your skin exposed can lead to dull, rough skin and uneven skin tone. Long-term sun exposure can also cause severe sunburn and wrinkles and raise the risk of developing skin cancer that if not treated early, can be serious. Whenever you plan to spend time outdoors, generously apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen designed to protect against both UVA and UVB rays with a SPF of 30 or higher.
Kick The Habit If Possible
Smoking contributes to premature wrinkles and makes skin look older. When you smoke, the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of your skin become narrow wherein blood flow is decreased. This drains your skin of the oxygen and nutrients it needs to maintain good health.
Maintain A Healthy Diet
By maintaining a healthy diet consisting of plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, your skin will receive many of the nutrients and vitamins it needs to stay healthy and clear. Try to incorporate some foods into your diet that are rich in essential fatty acids like salmon, nuts, and flaxseed as these foods enrich the skin naturally.
Living under stress most of the time can lead to more sensitive skin while triggering many common skin problems such as acne. Try to remove as much stress from your life as you can by setting limits, being more reasonable with the list of things you must accomplish each day, and by taking the time to do things you truly enjoy.
Clean Your Skin Properly
Instead of using harsh soap and hot water to clean your skin, use a gentle skin cleanser and warm water instead. Then rinse off the cleanser with warm water and pat your skin dry with a soft towel instead of vigorously rubbing your skin.
