We go to the dentist to check the health of our teeth to make sure we don’t need treatment and to protect against infection and disease. We sometimes undergo medical examinations to make sure our bodies are healthy and fully functional. So why not take care of our skin?
Prevention is better than cure
Many people think they don’t need to take care of their skin when they’re young because it doesn’t matter until they’re much older. But the way you take care of your skin now will greatly affect you later in life. How our skin withstands time is a genetic predisposition that we all have in one way or another, but lines and wrinkles can be significantly reduced by ensuring you stay hydrated, drink plenty of water, and avoid excessive sun exposure.
The sun is particularly harmful, and sun exposure can put you at risk of developing skin cancer. Remember, you are never too young to protect your skin. While you can experience the benefits of taking good care of your skin as you get older, the little effort you put into your skin when you’re younger will show on the outside.
Moisturizer and water for your skin
It is very important to invest in a good moisturizer suitable for your skin type.
Even oily skin needs to be hydrated, as dry skin tends to wrinkle and form much faster and more quickly than someone with extremely oily skin.
Dry skin is also very sensitive to the winter cold, it can make cracked skin painful and inflamed and lead to other skin conditions such as: eczema or psoriasis.
Cracked skin also has the potential to harbor infection-causing germs and bacteria.
We all know the importance of drinking water, it removes all toxins and wastes from the skin, leaving the skin soft, bright and youthful. However, we should not neglect our skin from the outside, it needs a certain amount of moisture to maintain its elasticity and suppleness, so the use of cleansers and moisturizers is very important.
Skin toner works well to remove impurities and tighten pores, even though some are very abrasive on the skin, they should be used sparingly and not around the eyes.
If you suffer from acne or other skin conditions, it’s important to seek acne treatment, especially when it’s at its worst:
can leave permanent scars,
Not to mention a lot of pain and discomfort.
Sometimes a healthy diet and lifestyle are not always enough to eliminate some skin diseases and conditions. Stress can also be a major factor, but it’s important to seek help when needed so problems can be avoided before they progress.
