The health of your skin is important; after all, it is the biggest organ in the body and it is the first thing people see when they look at you.
A good skincare regimen is essential in keeping your youthful and healthy appearance. It may take some time, but effort and patience is necessary to keep you looking your best. Here are some steps to help your skin look radiant and young for a longer time.
Avoid shaving your skin
Shaving is too rough and stressful on skin. Men who shave typically report skin problems on the face, and they hardly ever realise it’s the shaving that might be causing the issue. It’s even worse for women, who have more sensitive skin. To get rid of hair on different areas of the body, Black Champagne, a local beauty centre, recommends having an expert remove it for you. Visit a spa for hair removal in Tauranga. They use more advanced techniques that are gentler, safer and longer lasting.
Don’t expose your skin to the sun for too long
Wrinkles, age spots and an increased risk of developing skin cancer – there are many problems that may begin with prolonged exposure to the sun. Stay in the shade for as long as you can, bring an umbrella, wear a hat and don’t leave home unless you really have to. Water your garden before the sun is completely out. The rays of the sun from 10 am to 4 pm are the strongest and most damaging. If you must go out, or if you like letting the sun into your home, wear at least SPF 15 broad spectrum sunscreen. Use something with a higher SPF if you play outdoor sports or are at the beach.
Avoid smoking or exposure to tobacco smoke
Smoke from tobacco products like cigarettes and cigars damages every part of your body. Your skin loses its radiance because of smoking, and you might not even notice. Drop the habit and stay away from enclosed spaces where smokers hang out. Not only will you be saving your skin, but you will be saving your health in general.
The more you take care of your skin, the less likely you will have skin blemishes and other problems. You’ll stay attractive and young-looking for a longer time.
