Protect yourself from sun

One of the most important ways you can take care of your skin is to protect from the sun. Exposure to sunlight is one of the main causes of wrinkles, aging specific spots and other skin problems, but it may also increase the risk of skin cancer.

For a more effective sun protection you must:

- Use cream that protects against ultraviolet rays. Choose a sunscreen with broad spectrum SPF of at least 15. If you spend time outdoors reapply lotion every two hours or more often if swimming or sweating.

- Stay in the shade. Avoid the sun between 10 am and 2 pm when the sun is very strong.

- Wear protective clothing. Cover your skin with long sleeves clothing, long pants and wide-brimmed hats.

- Do not smoke – smoking makes your skin look older and contribute to wrinkles. Smoking narrows blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin and blood flow will decrease. Smoking harms collagen and elastin fibers that give skin firmness and elasticity. In addition, smoking specific repetitive facial expressions may contribute to wrinkles.


Treat your skin gently

- Avoid skin excessive cleansing. Gentle cleansing without harsh soaps, gels, foams and non-abrasive tools is the best alternative. Check the ingredients on the product labels to see if they contain plant surfactants.


Use products with a balanced pH

This means that their pH is close to the skin so that sebum is removed gently without removing natural oils.

Search the tags words like “balanced pH”, choose cleaning products that contain lactic acid or glycol and avoid exfoliating products because they have a low pH that can cause skin dry.


Choose moisturizers with multiple role

A good day cream provides both hydration and protection. Choose a herbal moisturizer (natural oils, considering that oils and essential fatty acids penetrate the skin better than creams) and antioxidants.

In addition to that, are indicated creams with a role in sun protection that do not contain irritants such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.


Eat healthy foods

A healthy diet can help you look and feel great. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein.

The association between diet and acne is not clear but some research suggests that a diet rich in vitamin C and low in unhealthy fats, refined carbohydrates and processed foods may contribute to maintaining youthful skin.


Stress control

Uncontrolled stress can sensitize the skin and trigger acne breakouts and other specific skin problems.

Try to manage stress, establish reasonable limits, make a list of things needed and things you like, for which you have to take time to do it. The results could be more obvious than you expect.
