“Beautiful Skins Requires Commitments, Not Miracles”

Useful info and health tips

When it comes to looking and feeling as youthful as ever, you’re probably aware that your skin can tell a lot about your health and your age. From fine lines and wrinkles to sunspots, eventually, your skin will start to show some wear and tear. But no matter how old you are, there’s plenty you can do today to start taking better care. We all want skin that looks great — and appearance aside, you should also know the warning signs of life-threatening lesions that can lead to cancer.

Know what is in your sunscreen

If you have not been wearing sunscreen over the years, it’s never too late to start. Not only does sunscreen help protect your skin from cancer, but it’s also vital for keeping it looking youthful. Not all products are created equally, however. You should be looking for sunscreens that contain anti-inflammatory and barrier-repairing ingredients.

Over-washing your skin can cause it to look older

Washing your skin is important — but if you’re scrubbing more than twice a day, you’re doing yourself a disservice. When you over-wash, it can cause your skin to look super dry, and that can highlight ageing and wrinkles.

If you’re experiencing breakouts, check your diet

The older you get, the more you’ll want to make sure your diet is helping your skin instead of hurting it. Refined carbs and sugar are a huge no-no for good skin. Instead, nourish your skin from the inside out with foods high in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon, walnuts, or avocados. You’ll appear way more youthful when you get rid of unhealthy favourites and go for the good stuff.
