Tips For Healthier, Glowing Skin
The easiest way to protect your skin against aging and sun damage is to wear sunscreen, and not just wear it but reapply it often. Sun shielding ingredients are only protective for a couple hours, so make sure you keep sunscreen in your bag. And don’t even think about skipping winter months.
When it comes to exfoliation, it’s not how much you exfoliate but the type of exfoliator you’re using that makes the big difference. Avoid scrubs which can sometimes stretch out your pores. Instead opt for a chemical exfoliator twice a day with glycolic, lactic acid or salicylic acid as the active ingredient.
Probably one of the easiest ways to prevent acne is to avoid touching your face. Every time you touch a pimple you’re causing inflammation and distress to skin. Not to mention you’re encouraging the growth and spread of bacteria, so just remember that… and keep your hands off your face.
Good skin care starts from the inside out. Omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon and walnuts fight inflammation, while citrus fruits and spinach enhance collagen productions. Eat tons of pomegranate which is chock full of antioxidants. What to avoid? Sugar.
