Much like other organs in the body, the skin requires a great deal of care and attention to remain in good condition. However, for those who suffer from skin conditions, it isn’t always as simple as it sounds.
Your skin is highly sensitive and reacts to the environment, creams, and our body’s response, causing you to suffer breakouts, dehydration, and even premature aging.
However old you may be, you should make it your priority to take care of your skin as soon as possible. Luckily, a good skincare routine doesn’t have to be time-consuming and will soon become part of your daily routine in no time.
Here are some of the best ways you can take care of your skin:
Stay out of the sun
Are you a sun worshipper and love feeling the hot rays on your face? If so, you could be causing severe damage to your skin as a result of exposure to harmful UV rays. Years of extreme sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots, and other long-term skin conditions. To ensure you’re well-protected from the sun, you should follow the below tips:
- Wear high-factor sunscreen (even when it’s cloudy)
- Seek shade where possible
- Wear lightweight, protective clothing (such as long-sleeved shirts) to keep the skin covered from UV rays.
- Wear high UV protection sunglasses
- The sun is strongest between 10 am and 4 pm. Therefore, it would be advised to stay in the shade or indoors during these hours while out and about.
Are you someone who frequently gets stressed? If so, you could be contributing to long-term skin damage, alongside a multitude of other health problems. When you’re feeling particularly anxious, your skin is more likely to suffer from breakouts, dryness, and even become wrinkled.
To prevent stress from taking hold, ensure you get enough sleep, practice mindfulness and meditation, and be sensible with how much you can take on to prevent overdoing it. By feeling more in control, your stress levels should fall.
Undergo thread lift treatment
You may be hesitant about undergoing the knife to maintain a healthy and glowing complexion, but now you can benefit from non-invasive skin treatments such as thread lift treatments which can achieve the same effect without the long recovery time.
A thread lift treatment involves the use of specialized surgical threads which are pulled tight to contour the skin by restoring volume and reducing wrinkles.
See a dermatologist
If you have suffered from skin conditions such as acne or rosacea for many years and have tried every over-the-counter treatment available, you may benefit from visiting a dermatologist. They will be able to carry out a personalized assessment on your skin to understand the issues you’re dealing with and try out more advanced methods to tackle the root cause.
Interestingly, everyone has different skin types and typically, this can be one of the reasons why some individuals suffer flare-ups and a lifetime of skin problems over others. Your dermatologist should be able to provide expert advice on your skin condition and give you multiple solutions to try out at home.
