Best Practices – Caring for your skin as you grow:
Our skin is a living organ that changes overtime and adjusting our skin care to accommodate these changes is essential to have healthy skin. Caring for our skin is as important as caring for any other part of our body, if not more, as our skin is reflective of everything that goes within our body. One of the easily noticeable changes reflected through the skin is age and this is inevitable. However, one can have healthy skin irrespective of their age and here are a few ways to make sure you are giving your skin the care it needs regardless of how old you are:
Be Gentle with your skin: As we age, our skin gets less oily and more sensitive. It is important to hydrate and nourish our skin without being too rough with it. Using a gentle face wash will hydrate the skin effectively without washing away the necessary oils required by the skin.
Moreso, it is important to use a light hand, cleansing in gentle, circular motions. Aggressive scrubbing could irritate already sensitive skin and accelerate ageing, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD).*
Watch what you Eat: Our body parts are not exclusive to each other. Much of what happens outside our body is a direct result of what we put inside it. One of the most important things to do is watch the type of food that is being consumed over a period of time. Consume food products with proteins and vitamins that will nourish the skin to keep it supple and glowing as you age.
Let go of that dead skin: Our skin sheds dead cells and they make the skin look dull and rough. To avoid this, exfoliate the skin regularly with a scrub. But remember to use eco-friendly products and not plastic microbeads.
If you drink or smoke (often)… STOP: Smoking ages the skin much faster than its usual time period. It causes wrinkles and dulls the skin completely. This stands true even in the case of alcohol. Alcohol dehydrates the skin and in time, damages it. So, consume wisely to avoid any damage to the skin.
Do not use skin products that sting or burn: If a product stings or irritates the skin, it is our skin telling us that the product is not right for us. Using a product that does not suit our skin can lead to infections and cause the skin to age faster.
Taking care of our skin is also a part of taking care of our overall health and it is never too late to adopt practices that will keep our skin healthy and nourished in the long run.
Having said that, if the changes in your skin due to age or any other reason bother you, don’t hesitate to visit a professional doctor who can help and guide you. They are capable of recommending treatments and procedures that can help you deal with your skin better. And of course, we are here to help you with any queries that you might have related to skin care.
