Do you want smoother, younger looking skin? Find out how to get better skin below:
Prevent Sun Damage
You may like the way you look with a tan, but too much sun exposure can seriously damage your skin and cause lasting problems. Sun damage can cause discoloration, wrinkles, dryness, and in the worst cases, skin cancer. Protect your skin from sun damage by wearing sunscreen whenever you go outside, shading your face with a hat, and staying indoors between 10am and 4pm when the sun is most likely to damage your skin.
Perfect Your Nighttime Routine
Your nighttime routine can damage your skin and detract from your appearance, or it can help you improve your skin and look better in the morning.
A healthy nighttime routine can protect and improve your skin.
• Start by washing all the makeup off your face before bed.
• Apply a night cream with retinol to target wrinkles and fine lines while you sleep.
• Pull your hair back or put it in a braid to keep it off of your face while you sleep.
• Sleep on clean linens, and especially a clean pillowcase.
• Go to bed early enough to get 7-8 hours of sleep.
Exercise improves your circulation, which gets nutrients to your skin and keeps it healthy. As long as you wash your face well after exercising, sweating during a workout can also help keep your skin clean by removing dirt and dead skin cells that could clog your pores.
As an added bonus, exercise reduces stress. Stress can contribute to breakouts, wrinkles, and other skin trouble, so reducing your stress levels will help you keep your skin looking great.
