With the constant barrage of health and beauty advice blaring from just about every major media outlet, it’s enough to make you shut everything out and stick with your current routine. Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies. As such, special care should be taken for optimal skin health. Let this be one new item in your health and beauty care regime that will pay off for years to come.
Our skin consists primarily of water. The skin needs to be constantly hydrated. Body heat escapes through the skin, and this moisture needs to be replenished to achieve a healthy balance. Plant to drink at least three to four large glasses of water daily. Sugar sodas, caffeine and alcohol all serve to dehydrate the skin. The second step in providing moisture for the skin is to apply a daily full body moisturizer. Select a special formula for the thin, sensitive skin surrounding the eyes. Get in the habit of applying this every day. Selecting a moisturizer with a high SFP is also a great way to protect and nourish your skin at the same time. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and select from the huge variety of moisturizers available at Sephora.
Finally, protect your skin when outdoors. The sun’s rays are harsh and burn skin leaving lasting damage. This is the case in both the summer and winter months. Start to assemble a fun collection of hats with brims or visors and plan on wearing them when spending extended periods of time outside. Applying sunscreen over your entire body is a must to protect from the sun’s harmful rays. Gone are the days however, of spending hours sunning on the beach. This creates dangerous and lasting problems for the skin. There is currently a selection of clothing available designed from fabrics that protect from the sun’s rays but are very light and breathable for hot summer days. Best of luck on your lifetime skincare regime.
