Taking care of Your Skin

Good skin comes from within. That old saying might be cliché, but it’s also true. The foods you eat and the way you care for your body have a direct impact on your skin. Eating well helps maintain healthy skin as well as hair and nails while avoiding certain foods and habits can help prevent acne breakouts and other types of skin problems. There are plenty of ways to keep your skin looking its best. Keeping up with good hygiene practices is one of the most important things you can do to keep your skin healthy. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at some great tips for helping you achieve healthy, glowing skin every day.

Practice Good Hygiene

One of the best things you can do to keep your skin healthy is to maintain good hygiene. The more you clean your face, the less likely you will run into skin issues down the road. Be sure to clean your face at least once each day if you have oily skin or are prone to breakouts. If you have dry skin, be sure to use a moisturizer daily, especially in dryer seasons when the air is drier. When you clean your face, be sure to use a gentle cleanser to avoid irritating your skin. Do not use bar soaps or harsh products designed for the rest of your body they are too abrasive and will damage the skin barrier, causing your skin to become overly dry.

Wash Your Face with Cleanser and Water

One of the best ways to keep your skin healthy is by washing your face with cleanser and water daily. You’ve probably heard this advice a thousand times, but it’s important. It’s not only a helpful way to keep your skin clean, but it also promotes healthy skin by allowing your pores to breathe. Be sure to use a cleanser that is made for your skin type. If you have normal skin, use a mild cleanser that will cleanse your skin without stripping it of moisture. If your skin is dry, try a cleanser made for dry skin. If you have oily skin, look for something that is extra-mild. It’s also important to make sure to splash your face with water after you wash it. Washing your face strips away dirt and oil that are on your face, but it doesn’t remove water-based impurities, like sweat or excess water from your pores. Cleansing with water will help flush away impurities and keep your pores unclogged.

Use Gentle Facial Scrub 2-3 Times a Week

Although you should avoid scrubbing your skin excessively, it’s a good idea to scrub your face a few times a week. Scrubbing a couple of times a week with a gentle scrub helps slough off dead skin cells, allowing new skin cells to rise to the surface. Be sure to use a scrub that is made for your skin type. The best time to scrub your face is after you’ve cleansed it so that the scrub can get rid of any dirt or oil on your face. Use a scrub that is meant for the face, not the rest of your body. If you scrub your body too hard, you can cause micro-tears in the skin, which can lead to infection.

Don’t Forget to Moisturize

Your skin is made up of a variety of different cells, but it also has an inner layer called the dermis, which houses the majority of your skin’s moisture. As you age, your dermis becomes less hydrated and drier, which can lead to wrinkles and fine lines. Most moisturizers offer sun protection, but you should also apply sunscreen in the morning to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Look for a moisturizer that is made for people with a combination or oily skin. Avoid moisturizers made with oil, as they can clog pores and cause breakouts. It’s also important to note that moisturizers are not a substitute for sunscreen. They cannot protect your skin from UVA/UVB rays in the same way as sunscreen.

Stay Out of the Sun

This one should go without saying, but many people forget that their skin needs sun protection, even when they aren’t going outside. Your skin cells are constantly regenerating, which means they are vulnerable to the sun’s UV rays all year long. Make sure to use a daily sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, even on cloudy days. Also, be sure to wear a wide-brimmed hat if you’ll be outside when the sun is strong. Avoid being outside during the sun’s peak hours, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. If you can’t avoid being outside during these hours, you can also wear protective clothing that covers your skin, like a long-sleeved shirt and pants.


Your skin is an organ, and it needs the same care as your other organs. That means that you need to take care of it, and you need to feed it good nutrients in order to help keep it healthy. Eating well to promote healthy skin is a good place to start, but you also need to practice good hygiene and use sun protection. There are lots of ways to help keep your skin healthy it’s up to you to use them.
