The better and healthier your skin looks, the younger you will appear to be. Good-looking skin also is cared for on a daily basis. Your Redwood City cosmetic surgeon at GLOW Surgical Arts is here to help, suggesting this list of everyday skin care tips everyone should follow to look their best.
Only buy the best: Ever hear the old credo “you get what you pay for”? This certainly applies when discussing skin care products. Your cosmetic doctor at GLOW Surgical Arts offers professional-grade products that cannot be found in stores. These professional-grade products are made with higher-quality materials and are better-suited for your skin type and complexion.
Watch what you eat: Your diet affects your overall health, so of course what you eat has an impact on the condition of your skin. Eating foods that are rich in antioxidants such as apricots, carrots, and spinach can fortify your skin. You also should consider adding fish oil or other sources of omega-3 fatty acids to your diet to improve your skin health.
Lower your stress: Stress is an inevitable part of life, but managing that stress is key to maintaining optimum health—and the condition of your skin. Each time you get stressed out, it elevates the levels of cortisol in your body, thus increasing the production of oil. Even after a stressful day, you can take a 10-minute warm bath before bed, then apply moisturizer before drying completely. This simple act of self-care not only soothe you and help relax you for sleep, but it also traps moisture in the top two layers of your skin.
Keep the sunscreen handy: Summertime is here, and few factors prematurely age skin faster than sun damage. Wearing sunscreen with an SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of at least 30 any time you are going to be outside for a significant amount of time is a tremendous step to protect your skin from sun damage. If you live in a warm climate like Southern California or Florida, you may end up wearing your sunscreen on a year-round basis.
Grade A: Vitamin A is a powerful anti-aging agent that should be available in the vitamins section of your local big-box store or health food store. Add it to your daily regimen to improve the appearance of your skin.
