Many people neglect at-home routines when it comes to the care of their skin. Maintaining a proper skin care routine helps to prevent premature aging and other common cosmetic concerns.
Moisturization is Key
Probably the best thing that you can do for your overall skin health is to properly moisturize on a daily basis. Dry skin is often more prone to developing signs of premature aging like lines and wrinkles. Skin that is properly hydrated helps to form a barrier against the damaging effects of sun exposure, wind, and pollutants among cosmetic flaws.
The best time of day to moisturize is when your skin is already hydrated. Following your bath or shower, apply a good moisturizer to lock in all of this good moisture for the day.
Another way to maintain moist skin is to ensure that you remain hydrated on a daily basis. Drink plenty of fresh water or healthy fluids every day. This will ensure that your skin remains healthy and that your body is able to flush out any toxins that can have a detrimental effect on the health and appearance of your skin.
Pay special attention to the ingredients list of any skin care products that you use on a regular basis. For example, ingredients like alcohol can have a drying effect on your skin, while other ingredients can cause an allergic response. Pay attention to how your skin responds to any new skin care products and be willing to alter your skin care routine accordingly.
In spite of your best efforts, sometimes it is necessary to have some form of professional skin treatment to augment what you are doing or to slough off dead skin cells that can block the natural radiance of your skin. Microneedling is an extremely safe and mild treatment that fits the bill.
A microneedling treatment involves creating a series of micro-channels in the skin to stimulate production of collagen, the main structural protein in the skin, and create a youthful complexion.
