Simple Ways to Improve the General Wellness of Your Skin
When it comes to anti-aging, protecting your skin really is the best way to shed years. Not only does paying some attention to your skin benefit your physical wellness and wellbeing, it also makes you look younger and gives the illusion of health, too.
Fortunately, however much you have neglected your skin, it is easy to make it look better in a relatively short period of time. This is because the skin is a constantly growing organ, and so you can easily get rid of more unsightly bits because it is growing all the time.
You’ve probably been told it a hundred times, but the best thing that you can do for your skin is to cover up in the sun. Sun exposure causes a myriad of problems including age spots, wrinkles and dehydration. If you have to be out in the sun at all (and think carefully about whether you do) then be sure to wear a high factor sun screen and wear a wide-brimmed hat at all times. The sun’s rays are strongest in the middle of the day and the early afternoon, so these are the prime times to avoid being outdoors if at all possible.
Drinking water is also a really simple and yet effective way that you can look after your skin. Water is a natural moisturiser for the body, and when you are running low (as so many people are) then it really shows in your skin. It appears as wrinkles, cracking, dry patches and rough skin, and can really add years to your life. Buy a cheap water bottle and carry it around with you making sure that you drink at least eight cups of water per day. As an added bonus, drinking water on a regular basis also helps to flush impurities out of your body, which can be great for your skin.
