Feeling a bit less than luminous lately? Truth be told, of the multitude of ways to make your skin look younger and fresher - many don’t take much more effort in your already daily routine.
Check out some of these simple skin tips you may not have heard:
Cheap-o lotions work: If you’re in a pinch, any moisturizer with glycerin, shea butter, or another basic hydrator will help your skin. For more frequent use, you’ll still want to go with dermatologist recommended creams that have ingredients designed to boost cell turnover, stimulate collagen grown, and banish DNA-damaging free radicals.
Remember, the sun is everywhere: Just because you are barely exposed to direct sunlight on your daily commutes doesn’t mean you are protected against photodamage. UVA rays can go through the windows of your office, home, and car! Recent studies have shown the damage that UVA can do to the skin on a daily basis. So don’t risk it, wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen each and every day.
Keep your distance: The sun isn’t the only source of heat damaging to skin. Direct exposure to space heaters and fireplaces (two - three feet) can cause redness and breakdown of collagen. Bundle up and sit at least ten feet away from heat sources!
Drink water, wisely: Water of course is important for your health, and skin. But constantly pursing creates lines and agitates any existing ones around the mouth. Choose to sip water from a glass when you can or opt for a reusable bottle with a spout that you can easily squirt into your mouth.
