Summer is winding down. Fall and cooler days are just around the corner. Are you looking for ways to keep your skin healthy and beautiful? If so, here are a few tips to help you toward healthy skin for fall:
Damage From The Sun
- Always apply sunscreen when you’ll be spending time outdoors, even in the winter.
- Choose sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
- Wear hats and clothing to cover your skin.
- See your dermatologist regularly to monitor your skin’s health and catch any problems early.
- Collateral Damage
- Clean your face morning and night, and always remove your makeup before bed.
- Wash your pillowcase often.
- Avoid touching your face.
- Don’t pop pimples or squeeze at blackheads.
- Use a gentle touch when applying makeup and avoid pulling too much on your skin, especially the delicate skin near your eyes.
- Your body needs water to stay healthy and so does your skin. Keeping your skin hydrated starts from the inside, so drink 6-8 glasses of water every day. If you’re spending time in the sun, or exercising regularly, you may need to drink more.
- Moisturizer also helps your skin stay hydrated, so start using it while you’re young, before you notice the signs of aging.
- Fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants that help protect your skin from pollution and damaging free radicals.
- Vitamin E protects your skin from further damage, so, snack on almonds, sunflower seeds, and hazelnuts to boost your intake of Vitamin E.
- Unsaturated, healthy fats, such as avocados, act as natural moisturizers for your skin.
- The Vitamin C in oranges, broccoli and strawberries boosts your immune system, which helps your skin heal from blemishes.
