Tips for healthy skin

  • Most skin problems can be successfully treated.
  • Sun protection and hydration are essential.
  • Personal hygiene has to be consistent and gentle. 
  • Invest in Collagen - the best skin supplement.

Our skin is our biggest organ, and like any other organ it can have problems and require your attention. The skin’s layers act as a protection barrier and therefore suffer most from constant exposure to the outside world.

According to statistics, skin problems are one of the most common reasons for visiting a doctor. Luckily, most of those problems can be successfully treated. Keep reading to find out what you can do today to get a step closer to healthy and beautiful skin.

  • Sun protection. Ultraviolet from the sun can give you a sunburn, make your skin dry, cause wrinkles and even lead to skin cancer. Reduce your time in the sun, use sunscreens and wear hats. 
  • Drink enough water. Dehydration can negatively affect all your organs including skin. Make sure to get your eight recommended glasses of water per day, and always take a bottle of water with you wherever you go.

Don’t force yourself, but whenever you feel thirsty just take a sip. In winter, when the heating is on, spray your face regularly with pure water or mineral water to make sure it always stays hydrated. 

  • Invest in high quality supplements that have all the vitamins and minerals for flawless skin. Collagen is one of the best skin supplements that you might consider taking. It improves elasticity, provides hydration and may even slow the aging process.

People who’ve taken collagen regularly for two months or more reported that the quality of their skin had improved, the dryness went away and the depth of wrinkles was reduced.

  • Cleanse, but be gentle. Washing regularly is important, but try to avoid extreme hot and cold temperatures, intense rubbing, harsh soaps and scrubs. Soap washes off natural oils from your skin leaving it unprotected, that’s why it’s important to use moisturizers and creams afterwards.
  • Avoid touching your face during the day. You touch your laptop, door handles, elevator buttons, money, bank cards and then… your face. All the bacteria, dirt and oils may be clogging your pores, causing acne, pimples and irritation. Use hand sanitizer regularly on both your hands and your mobile phone, as it also touches your face when you voice message and answer calls.
  • Pay attention to your sleep and work schedule, and try to avoid stress. Not enough sleep, combined with too much stress, may cause damage to all your body’s systems and also negatively affect the skin. 

There’s no magic pill for treating all skin problems, and in some cases you might consider visiting a specialist - but there’s a lot you can do today to significantly improve your skin’s condition.
