Healthy Skin comes from Within
Young-looking skin is the goal of many, and a holistic approach is needed to keep skin healthy as well as beautiful.
Your skin does a lot of work to protect your body and, by returning the favour, you can reap the benefits of skin which has a naturally youthful glow for much longer. At the clinic, we always make sure to treat the root cause of any skin complaints rather than covering up and encourage our clients to look after their skin before and after treatments.
A Balanced Diet
When it comes to the appearance of the skin, you will almost certainly get out what you put in. A diet which is healthy and well-balanced, containing plenty of fruits and vegetables, is advised.
If your diet is balanced, your general health will benefit, and this will be reflected through your skin. As well as maintaining a healthy diet, limiting any intake of alcohol is also a good idea.
When you drink alcohol, your skin becomes dehydrated, making it more susceptible to lines and wrinkles. Drinking plenty of water can help to combat this, along with balancing alcoholic drinks with fruit juices and soda water.
Sun damage is the biggest cause of aged-looking skin, with added risks including skin cancer. It is very important to protect against sun damage by wearing plenty of suitable sun cream and covering up with clothing, hats and sunglasses.
Cigarette smoke has been strongly linked to a leathery and wrinkled appearance, making the skin look much older than it should.
The ingredients used in cigarettes contribute to the breakdown of collagen, leading to faster degradation of the skin’s appearance. Quitting smoking, along with avoiding smoke-filled areas, will prevent damage to your skin.
Look After Yourself
Although regular cleansing is very important, using the wrong type of cleanser can deplete the natural oils which are needed to keep the skin healthy. Instead, choose products that protect the skin and avoid causing inflammation or itchiness.
If you regularly work late nights or have an irregular sleeping pattern, this can also be detrimental to your skin. A tired-looking appearance will result if you are not getting enough rest.
Make sure to get a good night’s sleep as often as possible, and remember to remove all your make-up with the right cleanser for your skin type on a nightly basis.
