If you have surgical and non-surgical procedures done to restore a youthful appearance to your skin, it’s important to take care of your skin to enhance and prolong results. Here are xxx habits you can adopt for healthier skin:
Eat your fruits and vegetables. Consuming fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins will help improve the health of all of the organs of your body, including your skin, which is the largest organ of the body.
Stay hydrated. Hydration is essential for radiant, healthy-looking skin, but you won’t get that with soda or diet soda. Keep your skin and body hydrated by drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day.
Protect your skin from the sun. Sun exposure over time will cause lines, wrinkles, age spots, and other skin problems. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. Apply liberally and every two hours, applying more often if you’re swimming or sweating in the heat. Wear sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats to protect the skin as well, especially the delicate skin around the eyes.
Don’t smoke. Smoking deprives the skin of oxygen and nutrients, causing it to have poor, uneven skin tone. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin, which are fibers in your skin that provide strength and elasticity, causing the skin to sag. Smoking also contributes to lines and wrinkles, especially the deep lines around the lips called the “smoker’s pucker.”
Get your sleep. Your skin will benefit from getting eight hours a night, so develop a good nighttime routine to help you have a better chance at restful sleep.
Use the correct cleanser for your skin type. If you are dealing with oily or acne-prone skin, you’ll want a cleanser that’s designed to address those skin concerns. No matter your skin type, find the products that address your concerns.
Moisturize day and night. Apply a moisturizer right after you shower in the morning and before you go to bed. If you’re spending time in the sun, use a moisturizer containing SPF.
Adding these simple habits to your daily routine will help your skin achieve a more youthful appearance. To formulate a comprehensive plan to help turn back time on your face, call (203) 453-6635 and schedule a consultation with Dr. Price.
