With summer here, you’re probably wearing lighter clothing and spending more time out in the sun. The Health Site website offers these do's and dont's for keeping your skin healthy:
Do hydrate. Water is important for good health in general, and it’s essential to healthy skin, helping to clean out toxins from your body and opening your pores to give the skin a healthy look.
Don’t smoke. Smoking can accelerate your body’s aging process and decrease the amount of necessary vitamins and nutrients needed for healthy skin.
Do wash and moisturize. Cleaning your skin in the morning and evening will remove dust and oil that clogs your pores. Use a moisturizer with an SPF of 30 or higher after washing.
Do use sunscreen. It’s not just for going to the beach. Apply sunscreen every day if you’re going to be outside at all. Choose one that has 30 SPF or higher for good protection from UV rays.
Do eat a healthy diet. Lots of green vegetables and fruit can help your skin stay fresh and young. Raw tomatoes and fruits can brighten your skin.
