Is your skin looking a little ill? Sallow? Poor texture? Perhaps acne? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you aren’t alone. The good news is you can improve your skin condition and you can do it faster than you might have thought. Let’s look at how to improve poor skin.
Have you ever wondered why one person can look ten years older than they are and another person can look ten years younger? You’ve heard people credit genetics and while genetics might play a role what you eat can make a huge difference in your skin’s condition.
You’ve heard it before – you are what you eat. That’s certainly true when it comes to your skin, which is the biggest organ of the body. If you are feeding your body processed food, junk food, and you aren’t getting the right nutrients then your skin is going to suffer? You need to eat a well balanced diet that has plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
You also need to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Water flushes the body of toxins and hydrates the skin. Drinking adequate water will make your skin look much healthier. Coffee doesn’t count and neither does juices. Water is water – you can add a touch of lime or lemon.
Take a vitamin and mineral supplement to ensure you are getting a well-balanced nutrition and add a zinc supplement too if you have acne.
Wash your face morning and night using warm water and a mild cleanser that’s appropriate for your skin type. Always use a moisturizer. Did you know that even when you have acne you need to moisturize daily? It just has to be a moisturizer for oily skin.
Always wear sunscreen when you are outside, and if you burn easily you should consider using a sunblock. Sunscreen protects your skin from damaging UVB and UVA rays that can cause wrinkles, dark spots, and cause you to age quicker. If you wear foundation it should also contain at least a 15SPF.
If you have acne do not squeeze your pimples. Sure, it’s tempting but it can cause infection, redness, and swelling. It can also lead to scarring. Try not to touch your face as this can spread bacteria and cause pores to become inflamed.
There are many things you can do to improve poor skin. You can have youthful, radiant skin and keep people guessing about your real age.
