For women, the skin plays an important role in their beauty regime. How can they remain beautiful and youthful if they leave the skin untreated? As the outer layer of our protector, the skin is exposed to many dangerous substances, including harmful ray, dirt, dust, pollutants, and other things. It is only crucial that we need to protect the skin from any harmful condition and situation. So, what should you do, then?
Protecting Your Skin
How do you treat your cell phone? Do you keep it and clean it regularly to avoid dust and dirt accumulation? Do you use a special cover to protect it? If you care so much about your cell phone, you should do the same thing for your skin. Remember, your skin won’t only protect the other body systems or parts but it can also affect your appearance – which in the end will affect your confidence and self-esteem.
If you want your skin to remain smooth, firm, flawless, and youthful, you need to care and protect your skin. You shouldn’t overdo it, though, but you shouldn’t neglect the proper care either. Moisturizer is important as it will make sure that natural oil and liquid won’t vaporize just like that. Yes, our body has its own natural liquid and oil so it is only important to make sure that you have enough of it. Moisturizer will make sure that the oil will remain and yet it won’t be too excessive and create an oily appearance. That’s why it is only important to choose the right type of skin products that go along with your skin type.
Your Protection Routine
You need to moisturize your skin to prevent dehydration. In case you live in a dry and hot area, it is okay to wash your face three times a day – in the morning, during the day, and at night. Remember, though, that over washing isn’t advisable. You will only strip off your face from the natural oil and liquid, making your skin dry. Don’t forget to apply the moisturizer on your face after washing it off. It will keep your skin well nourished and hydrated.
When you have to go out, don’t forget to use any products with the SPF – the higher the level, the better it will be. It would be better if you can shield your skin from the sunray with a hat or an umbrella. If you are going to spend a lot of time outdoor, remember to re-apply the products with the SPF once every two hours. It should be enough to keep your skin protected. Of course, it would be wiser if you can find shelter from the building, the trees, or other construction on the outdoor. If you are pretty active outdoor (meaning that you spend quite a lot of time on the outside – probably on a daily basis), it would be better if you can choose all the products with SPF contents.
Managing Skin Issues
In case you have a skin problem, please don’t be a know-it-all and try to take matters into your own hands. The best way to deal with the problem is to consult a professional. Find a reliable and trusted dermatologist with good reviews and credibility. In most cases, you may be required to spend extra, but it is usually worth the spending.
Just because you and your friend share the same problem, it doesn’t mean that the solution and the treatment for both of you will be the same. You need to remember that each person is different; each of us has our own unique trait and characteristic. You and your friend may have the similar issue but it is possible that you have genetic differentiation or unique characteristics. Only the dermatologist can find out the core issue of your problem, evaluating the medical records and the health history of each one of you. That’s why it is advisable that you should meet a professional dermatologist to figure out what’s wrong with you and come up with a solution. Sometimes, you may be required to use only the prescribed products but it is also common that you are allowed to use a certain commercial product based on their suggestion.
Dealing with Stress
Do you know that your stress level can also affect your skin? Do you know that people with high-stress level or people prone to stress tend to look older and they suffer from a certain skin issue, such as wrinkles, acne, and others? You are probably wondering what the connection is but there is a simple and logical explanation about it.
You see, everything in our body is connected to one another because they are working as a unity. When you are stressed out, your immune system will drop – exposing yourself to many health issues and threats. Don’t you know it that when you are stressed out, you will likely suffer from a certain ailment, such as influenza or cold? The same thing also happens to your skin. When your immune system drops, your skin has to work extra to protect itself from the incoming threats. No wonder if it suffers from dehydration or malnutrition. The problem will only get worse if you don’t implement a healthy lifestyle – which means that you don’t supply yourself with the healthy minerals and nutrients from the fruits or veggies. So, don’t be too surprised to find your skin gloomy, dry, or dark from having too much stress.
Stay away from stress
If you want to improve it, you need to start paying more attention to yourself. Have a healthier meal. Start exercising. Take a good care of yourself. Have more sleep and rest. Avoid stress; don’t bring home any additional work. Take life easily and have more fun. You should also surround yourself with the loved ones. Expand your social circle. Remember, your life is more than just work and professional responsibility so really enjoy yourself and enjoy a good company of the loved ones. You will find out that life can be such a wonderful experience and there is nothing to worry about.
