Your skin reflects your health condition and this is the first thing a doctor notices about you. Health of your skin depends on multiple factors: environment, genetics, your diet, skincare, etc. Although you can't take control over all these factors, you can still take some steps right now to make you skin looks healthy and beautiful at any age.
- Protect your skin
Protect your skin from UV rays that can damage it. Sun damage is the first reason why your skin begins looking older. Harsh UV rays can bring its negative effect at any age, but the signs of damage can be invisible until you enter your 30's or 40's. It's never late to start protecting your skin. Take action right now to exclude further damage including skin cancer. Wear hats, use high SPF sunscreen and wear glasses with UV protection.
- Don't strip your skin
Most of the cleansers you can see in the local store contain a lot of bad chemicals that "wash away" the natural skin oils that are used to protect your skin from environmental damage and help it to remain soft. When choosing a cleanser, try to find the one that contains organic ingredients which will not damage your natural skin protection.
- Consider proper hydration
One the cheapest and easiest ways to keep your skin properly hydrated is to drink much water. Pure water will make your skin look supple and soft as well as help your body to remove toxins that cause breakouts and irritation. When you have lack of moisture, your face looks less plump.
- Feed your face
How you feed your body directly affects your face. If your diet lacks fruits, veggies, whole grains and dairy, your skin will look tired. Make sure you eat enough veggies, healthy fats and protein.
- Clean your pores
Clean pores make your skin look radiant. It can be a little bit complicated to make your skin clean without stripping it. But as it was mentioned above, many cleansers today contain harsh chemical ingredients, while simple washing face with hands may not be enough. Consider pulsation brushes. They offer gentle but thorough cleansing and can be used with organic cleansing soaps or oils.
