Skincare Tips from Your Favorite SPA
As the largest organ in our bodies, our skin deserves to be given care and importance. But unless your skin has a specific condition, its care usually takes a back seat behind other parts of our bodies. This makes the skin a very underrated body part, indeed. However, as time passes, our skin can start to feel some very real weathering effects. Aging can be a good thing in the acquisition of more wisdom, but it may not be so good for our skins. The skin loosens and thus wrinkles are formed and it also dries up, losing its moisture. But thankfully, we have anti-aging creams, face masks and eye serums that can breathe life back to our dying skins and you can get them in the spa.
Applying these products can do wonders for the skin and body, however, it takes a proactive decision to eat right, sleep enough and exercise for the body to really combat and minimize the signs of aging. And so we’ll give you a few helpful tips you should follow when taking care of your skin.
Avoid Direct Sunlight
Our skin is constantly battered by the elements and if you live in a sunny place like Florida, chances are, you get out a lot and your skin gets all that unfiltered UV rays from the sun. Evidence from numerous dermatological studies strongly indicate that the sun can cause serious harm to the skin such as skin cancer, let alone less serious ones like sunburn. Years of constant exposure to sunlight can also cause the skin to age faster, that leads to the development of wrinkles. So always cover up, wear long sleeves or a hat with huge brims to protect yourself from the sun, if you really have to go out. And do not forget your sunscreen.
As the years go by, our skin loses its natural moisture, making the skin feel dry and eventually, this leads to the development of wrinkles, fine lines and skin flaking in some cases. The regular use of moisturizers not only keeps your skin looking healthy by means of hydration, it also is retains the overall health of the skin. Lip balms also fit into this category as they function the same way, but for the lips. Face and body moisturizers also offer vitamins and essential minerals to strengthen the resistance of the skin from the effects of bacteria from external environments.
Get Enough Sleep
For adults, it’s recommended to sleep at least 8 hours a day. Sleeping assures that your body gets enough rest and the internal organs do not get overworked, which leads to a healthier body. And when the body is healthy, so is the skin. People who tend to stay up late develop wrinkles more because the stress that’s associated with all-nighters. So, always get your beauty sleep whenever you can.
This never gets said enough. Eating whole and real foods like meat, eggs, fruits and vegetables retains the youthful glow of the skin because of the vitamin D and other essential acids that keeps the skin happy. And with it you should drink at least 8 glasses of water per day as well to keep the skin moisturized.
