5 ways to protect your skin

5 ways to protect your skin

Like everything in life, good habits can protect your skin against dryness, chapped skin and even skin cancer.

Why do you need to protect your skin? Because skin has a crucial role in protecting our body. You don’t need to completely change your lifestyle for a healthy skin and you’ll find out that small things can make a great difference.

First and foremost make sure that you limit the sun exposure of your skin. I know you probably heard this sentence countless times before, but experts would not insist on it if it wouldn’t be so important. The ultraviolet rays that the suns emits are able to cause numerous types of damage that you’ll probably want to avoid. We are talking about wrinkles, freckles, skin cancer, benign growths and so on. Next you head out to the beach or want to relax on your sunbed in the backyard do use skin care products that provide ultraviolet protection.

Make sure to use sunscreen every day, cover your skin with long-sleeved shirts and stay indoor during the peak periods when the sun is at its most strongest, usually between 11:00 and 15:00.

Don’t forget about tanning beds because they have the exact effect that the sun rays have on your skin.

At number two it has to be the hydration of your body. A moistly skin is essential to its protection as properly hydrated skin prevents flaky skin or chapped skin. So drink lots of water and use the right moisturizing lotion for your skin type and apply it after exiting the shower.

Also when taking showers, make them warm but no hot and within five to ten minutes. You may think that hey, if I want to make my skin moist then I should stay more wet but it’s actually the other way around. Long exposure to water can actually dry out your skin.

At number three we recommend to always take health precautions. Don’t share personal items or drinks with other people. If you recently used your smartphone (and you probably have) avoid touching your face with your finger before washing them. Telephone are probably the most dirty objects we carry with us twenty-four seven.

Number four: schedule for regular skin checks and treatments at trustworthy beauty clinics. Prevention is essential for a healthy skin and body. Take two hours out of your life for regular checks each year, it’s not a lot of time at its definitely worth it. A Beauty Clinic is probably the most straight-forward option for a skin check as they employ skin experts that can provide you with personalized advices on how to protect your skin, according to the type of skin you have.

Last but not least, and in close connection with the previous point, know your skin. Learn about it and remember if and where you have odd moles, freckles and consult a doctor if you see any significant changes (see point number four). Visit a dermatologist and get a check of any irritated dry skin or inflamed skin, irritations or rashes that don’t go away and learn those critical parts of your skin that need to be protected when you’re sitting in the sun.

Take a close read of the five points above and change a little, not a lot of your habits and who knows, maybe one day it can save your life. It’s a small price to pay for a healthy skin!

Top 5 good habits for a healthy skin

Top 5 good habits for a healthy skin

You know your skin is sensitive and you’ve learned to do everything by the book to avoid problems. But even if you have the same routine daily, every once in a while spots appear on your skin and you don’t know why. You did everything the same right? So why did your skin reacted differently?

Good vs bad skin habits
Differences of good skin versus bad skin habits.

There are several reasons and habits you may have than your skin can take for a while, but then it can’t take it anymore and problems appear. Below you’ll see the possible reasons why your skin sometimes decides to react differently and hot to foresee and avoid skin problems next time.

1. On a daily basis, start removing makeup with an antibacterial cleanser that your soft skin can accept. Cleanser with clouts make you feel really good if you have an oily complexion however your skin will be stripped of moisture and you’ll get the opposite effect of over-producing oil to compensate. Face wipes mostly spread dirt around so it is recommended to avoid them.

2. Make sure your pillowcases are clean. If washed less than once a week, pillowcases can gather a lot of dirt, hair products, creams, oils from your skin making it basically a toxic filled object with which you spend your every night; no wonder that your skin can’t take it after a while! So make sure that your sheets are washed on a hot cycle to kill any bacteria, germs or mites.

3. When you shower have mercy on your skin and turn the warm water down. You may enjoy it after a chilling day but your skin will go through a shock. Turn the degrees a little lower and have mercy on your skin.

4. Again returning to cleanliness, don’t think that we all assume you are a very dirty person, but dirtiness can be present even beside the most hygienic person due to some neglected innocent habits. This time make you that your makeup brushed are clean and yes, do take the time and wash your makeup brush at least once every two weeks. Remember that your skin will thank you later.

5. Last but not least, as this is problem only started to affect people life’s in the past decade, clean your phone screen. The majority of people ignore the bomb bacteria they carry around in their pocket daily, but actually your phone screen can be dirtier than your toilet. One instant message sent, then one innocent scratch on your cheek and there it is, a skin spot. Avoid this by cleaning your phone screen daily with a simple pack of anti-bacterial wipes.

Say goodbye to skin spots.

And there they are, five reasons that you probably didn’t think of, or you did but did thought you were right. Try to implement these healthy habits in your daily life and you’ll become a healthier person with a beautiful skin. Say goodbye to skin spots.
