Tips for Keeping Your Skin Healthy

Skin is the largest organ in (and on) the human body. Keeping this protective shield healthy and happy should be one of your top priorities! When your skin is healthy, it helps to keep the rest of your body rejuvenated.

Sun Protection

One of the things that can damage skin the most is the sun. Without proper precaution, sunburns can permanently damage your skin, and cause serious issues down the road. Be sure to always wear sunscreen, seek shade, or wear long sleeves/protective clothing when you are going to be out in the sun for long periods of time. Be sure to always wear sunglasses when you’re outside in the sun to protect your eyes and the sensitive skin around them. Ultraviolet rays can cause serious damage to the eyes, and in rare cases can even sunburn them! Be sure to reapply sunscreen every few hours to ensure full and lasting protection. We know that tanned skin can be desirable, but don’t use tanning beds. They cause damage to the skin which can be even stronger than the rays of the sun.

Don’t Smoke

Not only is smoking bad for your lungs, but it is also detrimental to your skin’s health. Smoking decreases the elasticity and blood flow for your skin over time. This results in excess wrinkles, slowed healing from wounds, loss of skin tone, and more. If you smoke, quitting can help heal some of the damage that smoking has caused. While wrinkles may never fully go away, the return of excess blood flow in your skin can lead to better skin health.

Be Gentle

When caring for your skin, take care to not be too rough on yourself. Don’t take long hot baths or showers, instead, use warm water. Prolonged heated bathing removes helpful oils from your skin. When shaving, take care to apply shaving cream or lotion to the skin to avoid any unnecessary abrasions. Always shave with the grain of your hair instead of against it. When drying your skin, don’t harshly scrub yourself dry, simply pat or blot the wet areas. Moisturize your skin regularly with lotions and soothing creams. Get to know your skin, and seek lotions that are built for your skin type.

Eat Healthy

A balanced diet of fruits, veggies, grains, and proteins can promote healthy skin. Diets that are low in unhealthy fats and refined carbohydrates can promote younger looking skin. This kind of diet not only helps the skin, but can promote better overall health. Make sure to stay hydrated as well! Drinking plenty of water will keep your skin moisturized, and will help to keep it healthy for a long time.

Manage Stress

This is easier said than done, but stressed minds lead to unhealthy skin. It can make your skin more sensitive and cause breakouts in acne or other skin problems. If you are constantly stressed, find areas of your life that you can slow down and take a bit of time for yourself. Whether it’s scheduling a massage or simply going for a walk outside, it’s important to manage your time and keep your mind and body healthy.

Try Microdermabrasion

After caring for your skin, it can be great to treat yourself a little bit! A microdermabrasion treatment from a Dermaglow machine will help your healthy skin look even better! By removing the dead skin cells, our machines reveal glowing, new skin underneath. Get in touch with us today to find out how to add microdermabrasion services to your spa or medical facility.
