Skin Health

Skin is the largest organ in the body and therefore requires a lot of attention. Healthy skin starts from the inside out, so focus on eating a diet rich in fruits and veggies with lots of antioxidants, Vitamin C, and zinc. Stay hydrated and exercise regularly as these are other ways to promote healthy skin. Welcome to the world of skincare! As you get older, your skin changes and you must adapt to these changes. The first change is that your skin becomes less oily and more dry, thus you must adjust your skincare routine accordingly. As you age, the collagen production decreases and elastin production increases. Therefore, you must focus on products that will increase collagen production and reduce elastin production. Reduce stress and get enough sleep as these are two things that greatly affect your skin.

The most important thing you can do for your skin is to avoid smoking. Smoking dries out your skin and causes premature wrinkles. Other things you can do to keep your skin healthy include avoiding excessive sun exposure and practicing good skincare habits, like exfoliating and using a moisturizer. If your skin is acne-prone, it may be beneficial to cut certain foods from your diet. Dairy, certain foods rich in sugar, and certain types of meat have been linked to breakouts. Stress can also worsen acne, so doing things that relax you, such as exercising, meditating, and spending time with loved ones, may help. Finally, if you have acne, visit your doctor to rule out the possibility that you have something like PCOS, which is a gynecological condition that causes breakouts.
