How to Keep Your Skin Healthy

It’s safe to say that we all want beautiful and healthy looking skin. But how do you achieve this and maintain it? Here are a few tips and tricks from the Skin and Vein Center:

Prevent Sun Burn and Sun Damage – Did you know that overexposure to the sun can cause premature aging and even skin cancer? To hinder sun damage, invest in a quality sunscreen that you can use daily. If you do plan on spending a considerable amount of time outdoors, try to add other layers of protection, including a hat for example.

Your Food and Water Intake – Here’s why your diet plays a large role in how your skin looks:

  • Our bodies are made up of a significant portion of water.
  • Doctors have echoed the sentiment that we are what we eat.
  • Our skin is our largest organ, and the rate and success by which it renews itself is influenced by the foods we eat.

As a result of the above factors, a healthy diet not only keeps you healthy, it keeps your skin healthy too.

Check Your Lifestyle and Habits – Smoking, drinking, and lack of sleep can all negatively affect the way your skin looks. These lifestyle factors can also cause premature aging of the skin, and they ultimately slow down the renewal rate of skin cells. Suggestions? Quit cold turkey!

Limit Stress – In addition to these lifestyle factors, experts recommend finding ways to minimize or manage stress, as large doses could negatively affect your health and skin. While stress is a natural part of the modern world, we can take steps to relax and breathe, including trying yoga, meditation or exercise.

Moisturize – One of the most highly recommended tips for truly radiant skin is finding a moisturizer that’s right for you. Once this is found, be sure to liberally apply it to your skin up to two times per day.

Should You Go to a Dermatologist?
Despite these healthy tips and tricks, however, some conditions make it hard to achieve beautiful skin on your own. Take acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and other common skin issues for example. These may need to be medically or cosmetically treated by a dermatologist.

The Skin and Vein Center has helped countless patients achieve healthy and beautiful looking skin, even if they’ve experienced bad acne, itchy skin from eczema, or other common ailments for years.
