Keeping your skin looking great is a wonderful asset at any age. One of the best ways to have a clear, healthy complexion is having a daily skin care routine. Using the right cleansers and moistures for your skin type is a good start – but sometimes preventive care is the best way to keep your skin looking great for years to come. Here are three of the top skin care tips recommended by many dermatologists.
Protect Your Skin from the Sun
The sun is the number one enemy of your skin. Not only is overexposure a leading cause of skin cancer, it can cause damage to the skin cells. This can create sun spots and changes to your skin to make it age prematurely. Wear sunscreen on exposed skin whenever you are outside, whether the sun is out or not, to protect your skin.
Avoid Hot Water and Soap
Yes, a hot shower or bath feels wonderful but it is also drying on your skin. Avoid hot water on your face – keep the temperature mild to avoid damage to your skin. Also, do not use plain soap on your face. Choose a mild cleanser that will not dry your delicate facial skin.
Healthy Inside, Healthy Outside
Caring for your skin does not just mean what you put on it – it also means caring for its health from the inside. Drinking plenty of water, eating healthy foods and getting enough sleep all contribute to a healthy complexion.
To get a personalized skin care program, schedule a consultation with your local dermatologist. As a skin specialist, they can help you choose the right products and skin care program to create a fabulous complexion.
