Tips To Make Your Skin Healthy As You Age

The skin is vital for human growth as it keeps the body organs intact. The skin also has sweat glands that enable our bodies exhale. In the process, waste salts in the form of sweat cool our bodies. These salts however should not remain on the skin as they may attract bacteria that contribute to body odor and acne. A blemish free soft skin is usually healthy and makes you look young. To achieve this skin beauty, you need to do away with bad practices on your skin and form a habit of treating your skin with tender loving care.
Facial and hand skin are usually exposed and hence are prone to harmful external elements like the sun, wind, bacteria and dangerous chemicals. These elements make your skin dry and dull. You should thus use moisturizers with vitamin E and essential fatty acids like omega 3 on your skin. These ingredients prevent moisture loss to avoid dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles. Moist skin can still be achieved by eating healthy. You need to consume foods rich in vitamins A, C and E like fruits and green vegetables. These aid in collagen production for a healthy skin. Drinking plenty of water moisturizers your skin and flushes out toxins that make your skin appear dull. Doing away with habits like smoking, high alcohol and caffeine consumption will do your skin a great favor.
It is natural for the skin to shed off to give way to new skin cells. Dead skin cells should not be left on new or growing skin cells, you can do away with it by exfoliation. This process removes dead skin cells to reveal a smooth fresh layer of skin. Home remedies include facial scrubs at least once a week. Chemical and natural facial masks are also ways of dealing with dead skin. An exfoliated skin allows blood circulation and ingredient absorption.
Dirt and germs from our hands can be transferred on our faces by touching. These elements are responsible for acne. You should therefore avoid touching your face and keep your hands clean. The face also needs cleaning in the morning and evening. Remember to wash off make-up before you go to bed as make-up can clog skin pores and causes acne. Facial skin needs to be protected from harmful ultra violet rays. Invest in sunscreen-based products. Wearing a hat or sunglasses is a sure way of protecting your delicate facial skin.
Finally exercise is good for the skin. The skin ages as we grow. It is thus advisable to do exercises to keep the skin supple. Exercising regularly gives you a firm skin and enables blood circulation around the surface of your skin. Seek the guidance of a professional if you need to use a product on your skin since skin types differ so does the working of skin care products.
