Protect Your Skin From The Sun
One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. Throughout our lifetimes, sun exposure can cause age spots, wrinkles and other skin problems. Overexposure to the sun can also increase your risk of skin cancer. Using suncream daily is the best way to protect your skin from the sun. Even on days when it’s not particularly sunny, UV rays can still affect your skin. You need sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15 to adequately protect your skin. You should also seek shade when you can during the summer and wear protective clothing.
Moisturise Your Skin
Moisturising your skin is crucial for maintaining its health. Our day to day lives is constantly presenting us with conditions known to dry out of the skin, such as wind and air conditioning. Again different skin types and conditions will require moisturisers with different properties. Here at DW Aesthetics, we offer a range of moisturisers, posing different benefits to help with different skin types.
Treat Your Skin Gently
Habits such as daily cleansing and shaving can harm your skin. The best way to limit the damage this causes is to be mindful when shaving and cleansing. You should limit bath and shower times as it removes the natural oils from your skin and water that is too hot can be extremely harmful. You should also avoid strong soaps and look for something milder and more natural. It is also crucial to remember to moisturise your skin after completing these rituals.
Eat A Healthy Diet
A healthy diet can help your skin. Although the relationship between diet and acne isn’t clear, research suggests that oily and sugary foods can hurt acne-prone skin. Avoiding fatty and overly processed foods can also help to promote younger-looking skin. Drinking plenty of water also helps to keep your skin looking healthy and hydrated.
