Caring For Your Skin: Prevention Is Key

Caring for Your Skin: Prevention is Key

There are countless skincare products available today to treat aging, acne, discoloration, and fine lines. But what is the best way to treat your skin? Truthfully, the best skincare treatment is prevention. By taking care of your skin today, you can help prevent many common skincare conditions from arising. Here are some tips that may help your skin look and feel its very best:

Wear Sunscreen Every Day

One of the most important preventative measures you can take for your skin is to wear sunscreen with SPF 30 every day. Exposing your skin to UV rays without sunscreen can have highly detrimental effects, resulting in sunburns, premature aging, fine lines, and possibly skin cancer. In addition, sunscreen should be worn even when the weather is overcast, as UV rays can pierce through clouds and reflect off of most surfaces, including water, sand, snow, and concrete. 

Limit Sun Exposure

Along with wearing sunscreen, you should limit sun exposure whenever possible. It is most critical to avoid the sun between 10 am and 4 pm when UV radiation is at its strongest. If you are in the sun during those hours, the CDC recommends wearing protective clothing to limit skin damage.

Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise is another crucial habit to follow to keep your skin healthy. When you exercise, your body is able to flush toxins out that can damage your skin. Remember to wash your face and body after exercising to remove any sweat or dirt that may have accumulated, and don’t forget to drink plenty of water to replenish your fluids. 

Don’t Smoke

Smoking and its chemicals can dry out and irritate your skin, leading to wrinkles, redness, age spots, acne, and cold sores. The nicotine in cigarettes and vaping products can also cause your blood vessels to shrink, which reduces oxygen flow to your skin, creating a dull and lifeless complexion.

Consume a Balanced Diet

Research suggests that following a balanced diet can promote skin health while consuming high levels of unhealthy fats, sugars, and processed food may negatively affect your skin. It is optimal to include an adequate amount of vegetables, fatty fish, fruits, and nuts in your diet to achieve invigorated skin. 

Manage Stress

Unmanaged stress can trigger irritation and acne. To keep your skin healthy, it is essential to get a proper amount of sleep, spend time doing activities that you enjoy, and focus on your mental health. 

Use Skincare Products Right for You

Although it may be a trial and error process, it is very important to find skincare products suitable for your specific skin type. Usually, you can take a step in the right direction by determining what type of skin you have (dry, oily, combination, sensitive, etc.).
