3 Tips for Improving Your Skin
By Genevieve Cunningham
Who doesn't want clear beautiful skin? Everyone hopes that their skin lasts the test of time. We all hope the blemishes clear and the wrinkles stay away. But the skin, like every other part of our body, ages and changes over time. The key is not to avoid all changes, but rather to protect and enhance the skin as the years go by. But how? If you would like to keep your skin as healthy and youthful as possible, take a look at these tips to start today.
Start a Routine
It's never too late to start a routine. The earlier you start, the better, but no matter how old you are, a skincare routine can protect your skin moving forward. So what's in a skincare routine? You'll need a good cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen at the very least. As you get comfortable with a morning and nightly routine, you can add more steps and products to the process. But get the basics down to start soothing and protecting your skin starting today.
Double Sun Protection Efforts
Whatever you're doing for sunscreen probably isn't enough. Many people go without any sun protection on a daily basis. If they know they'll be outdoors, they'll put on a little sunscreen barrier. But it's important to put on sunscreen every single day. It should go on your face, neck, and the backs of your hands -- all the places that see the sun often. If you already do this, then make sure you have a reapplication schedule later in the day (preferably multiple times). The sun can be so damaging to our skin. Protect it, and you and your skin will be better off.
See a Dermatologist
Why do we avoid the dermatologist? The skin is one of the first things that others see. It covers our entire body and protects us, and yet, we hesitate to see a professional who can help us keep it healthy. Why? Find a dermatologist near you, and book an appointment. This healthcare professional can give you tips and advice that is specific to your skin. And the sooner you take this step, the sooner you'll have a personalized plan for keeping your skin healthy long-term.
Your skin is going to change, and that's OK. But do your best to keep it healthy and strong. Do what you can to minimize the changes and the damage. Use these tips to get you started, and you may enjoy better skin starting now and lasting for years into the future.
