Your skin is one of our most sensitive organs, yet we put it through the wringer every day. Whether it’s a sunny summer’s day or the chilling cold of winter, environmental exposures can contribute to the appearance of aging. Taking care of your skin requires vigilance, and with that in mind, here are some basic tips for enjoying younger-looking skin.
This underutilized beauty tip is one of the most important. Drinking enough water is a great place to start, as is adding a hydrating moisturizer to your skin within a few minutes of taking a bath or shower. Right after cleansing is when the skin is at its most porous and ready to absorb the moisture.
Exfoliation is the key treatment for smoothing the skin and keeping it looking new. The method that you use will differ based on your skin type, but our team can help you determine which method is best for your skin type and situation.
Protecting the skin from the elements is crucial, and one of the easiest ways to keep skin protected is with the right type of sunscreen. As the face is almost always exposed, don’t forget to apply the sunscreen or save it for days at the beach. Make application of the lotion part of a normal beauty routine in order to enjoy younger-looking skin.
Facial cleansing should be done twice every day, especially if you wear heavy cosmetics. Even if you have a day without makeup or you’re just hanging out around the home, your skin will respond to the regular cleansing regimen and remain clear of the buildup of substances such as grease and acids that may contribute to premature aging.
It’s natural for your skin to have blemishes from time to time, and it’s important not to forcibly rupture or pop pimples, as this can lead to scarring. Simple self-care remedies can be useful, but the best way to truly achieve and maintain younger-looking skin is to take advantage of professional treatments as well.
