Maintain Optimal Skin Health
When it comes to beauty, there’s nothing more important than clear, youthful-looking skin. However, it’s impossible to have supple and beautiful skin without also seeing to it that your true goal is healthy skin. Here are some tips to help you achieve and maintain optimal skin health.
Maintain a Healthy Diet
If you’ve ever heard the expression “you are what you eat”, then you already know what the first order of business should be when it comes to improving the health of your skin. Swap junky, greasy foods full of empty calories and preservatives for fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and other nutritious options. Also see to it that you’re drinking plenty of water. Water helps keep skin looking hydrated, fresh, and youthful.
Avoid Known Causes of Skin Damage
One of the most important things to keep in mind when it comes to skin health is the need to avoid damaging your skin at all costs. Once skin is damaged, it’s hard to get it back to where it should be, so minimize sun exposure as much as possible. Never go out in the sun without sun screen and adequate protection. Don’t smoke, abuse alcohol, or do any illegal drugs either. All of these practices break down skin collagens and contribute the aging process in a massive way.
Get a Good Skin Care Doctor
People who are serious about maintaining skin health or who deal with chronic skin issues normally have a dermatologist that they see. Consult him or her as to the best course of action when it comes to treating acne and other conditions. Have suspicious freckles and moles checked out right away in case they’re cancerous. Most important of all, take your doctor’s golden advice as to how to care for your skin. You’ll be so glad you did!
If you have questions about skincare contact your local doctor, who will arrange for you to see a dermatologist.
