At-Home Skin Care

While every person’s skin is unique, there are a few things that should be common to every woman and man seeking healthy, youthful-looking skin. Care begins at home.

Moisture

Wrinkles appear as skin dries out due to aging and environmental factors. Keeping skin moist and pliant involves several factors, including staying properly hydrated. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is vital for skin care, as is choosing soaps and other skin-cleaning products that preserve moisture. Certain skin care lines can strip away valuable oils and cause the surface to dry out, leading to cosmetic problems.

A Clean Environment

Skin looks its best when it’s of toxins that come from outside and inside. Avoid environmental pollution as much as possible, and definitely avoid tobacco. Smoking can dry out your skin, cause discoloration, and hinder ideal blood flow—all of which are negatives when it comes to looking young and staying healthy.

Sun Protection

Ultraviolet radiation is a significant contributor to skin problems, both cosmetic and medical. The rays—which can come from the sun and tanning bulbs—hasten the breakdown of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin in the skin, causing it to become more brittle and dry, forming and revealing wrinkles. This can happen even on cloudy days, so time outside should always be marked by the application of an adequate barrier sunscreen from a trusted skin care line.

Rest

Your body repairs itself while you sleep, but we’re not talking about simply getting a good night’s rest now and then. Maintaining a sleep schedule that allows for plenty of shuteye gives your cells the time they need to function the way they should.

Regular Skin Care Inspections

This is where you knowing your own skin really comes into play. At least once a month, give your skin—from your scalp to your toes—as thorough a once-over as possible. Note anything unusual: rashes, bumps, spots, dry patches, and moles.

Scheduling Check-Ups

At each annual skin care visit, your dermatologist will carefully consider your own observations, since you would know best whether a lesion has been changing in size and shape over recent months or whether red welts appear only after you wear certain articles of clothing. Your dermatologist can also identify other potential problem areas, as well as recommend tests and treatments to keep your skin healthy and beautiful.
