If you are in your teens, twenties, or thirties and you haven’t started on a skin care regimen, now is the time to hop on that wagon. By protecting your skin at a young age, you can lower the chances that you will need to have cosmetic work done when you are in your fifties and sixties. From sunscreen to eye cream, this article will discuss three things that everybody should add to their skin care regimen— no matter what age you are. Read on to learn more.
Sunscreen isn’t just for the beach and pool days. In fact, you should be wearing a sunscreen every day of the week— no matter what the weather’s like outside. When choosing an everyday sunscreen, look for one in a moisturizer— these are typically less oily and less likely to break you out. When applying a sunscreen, make sure that you apply it not only to your face but your neck as well. As one of the most neglected parts of your body, your neck is one of the first places to show signs of your age, but the more you protect it, the more youthful it will continue to look.
If you use the same bar of soap to wash your face and body, you could be causing more harm to your face than you are aware of. Traditional bar soap strips your skin of its natural oils which can cause your skin to break out. Additionally, it is known to leave a film on your skin. To make sure that you get your skin as clean as possible without breaking out, start using a facial cleanser.
The skin under your eyes is extremely sensitive and can easily lose moisture— leaving you with bags and circles. To make sure the skin under your eyes stays hydrated, use an eye cream both morning and night. Eye creams are more sensitive so that you won’t have to worry about them burning your eyes.
Taking care of your skin doesn’t have to be complicated. By adding sunscreen, a facial cleanser, and eye cream into your routine, you can have the healthier skin for longer. To learn more about proper skin care techniques, contact Dr. Gary J. Price today!
