THE TRUTH………AND WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING.
There are plethora of anti-aging beauty products available on the market today. While there are a slue of options to choose from that could help with reversing the signs of aging and maintain healthy skin, it is important to pay attention to the bad things we do to our skin on a regular basis that contribute to aging. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind when practicing healthy skin care.
Get Rid of Harsh Facial Cleansers
Choosing carefully the best facial cleansing product to include in your daily skincare regimen is the most important step to maintaining healthy skin. Avoiding the use of cleansers with harsh ingredients that are drying and irritating to the skin is an absolute must - particularly ones that are sudsy, posses fragrances, and have harsh chemicals. You must use products that have natural ingredients for the overall health and wellness of the skin. Also, be gentle when washing your face, after all it is your prize possession and you must cleanse it with care.
Enough with the Zit Popping Parties On Your Face
Popping or scratching acne blemishes can aggravate this common yet troublesome condition. Picking your face further irritates the skin and increases the chance that dirt and bacteria will get into the affected area, leading to infection. Not Good! Additionally, permanent scarring of the skin can occur as a result of continued picking and irritation. It is recommended to avoid picking at acne in order to effectively promote a successful healing process.
Stop Worshipping The Sun
Over exposure to the sun is linked to both premature aging and skin cancer. We understand the importance of having some sun exposure on a daily basis for that healthy dose of Vitamin D, but overkill on having direct sun beat-down on your skin is asking for trouble. As much as the sun can be healthy for us in small doses, it can also be damaging to healthy cells in the body that need to work and renew for healthy glowing skin. Overexposure to the sun can result in increased wrinkles, age spots, leather-like skin, patchy discoloration, and in some cases cancerous lesions.
