4 Ways to Protect Your Skin

Boosting the appearance of your skin can help you boost your confidence and ensure that you not only look good all year round but feel good, too. No one wants to be living with dry or oily skin or skin that itches all the time, and a good skincare routine for your face and your whole body can allow you to ensure that you are given your boy what it needs to help you remain healthy on the outside and the inside.

But with all the pressure your skin comes under each day, how can you ensure that you are giving it what it needs?

Moisture Boost

Your skin gets moisture from various sources, from you consuming water, using moisturizing products, and from the environment. Making sure your skin gets adequate hydration means that you can give it what it needs to perform its daily functions easily and not become dehydrated because even oily skin can be dehydrated.

Pay attention to the products you are using and ensure they have the right moisture-boosting properties and ingredients for your skin type, whether facial moisturizers or body creams. Drink plenty of water, and if you live in drier climates, consider using a humidifier at home or in your workspace to increase moisture; aiming for 30 to 50% humidity in your space can help alleviate dry skin.

A Healthy Diet

Your skin needs a variety of vitamins and minerals to help you protect your body and stay healthy. Zinc, Omega-3, Vitamin B, Collagen, Vitamin D, and Biotin are just a few of the essential vitamins and minerals your body needs on a daily basis.

Including a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables along with oily fish, lean meats, beans, and pulses can help you give your skin and your body what they need. Top skin-boosting foods include;

  • Strawberries

  • Kimchi

  • Seeds (sunflower and flax)

  • Fatty fish

  • Avocados

  • Spinach

  • Yogurt

  • Green tea

Beauty Treatments

As well as eating right, drinking plenty of water, and using the right skincare products, you can also boost the healthy appearance of your skin by having beauty treatments that perform different tasks and support your facial skin and you're on your whole body too. Talking to a medical spa such as Elan Skin & Laser can help you find what your options are, what treatment would work best for you, and how it improves your skin. The exact treatments, be it face and body laser, microneedling, chemical peels, or microneedling, will be dependent on your skin and what you want to achieve for the treatment.

Wear Sunscreen

One of the most important things you can do is to wear sunscreen to protect your skin. On your whole body for parts that are exposed to direct sunlight and on your face daily to keep it protected. Even on cloudy days, the sun's rays can penetrate the clouds and damage your skin, so you must always protect it. Sun damage can prematurely age your skin, cause fine lines and dark spots, increase your risk of skin cancers, and more. Daily sun protection, separately or combined with your moisturizer, will protect your face, and sunscreen on your body will do the same for other areas of exposed skin, too.

You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat.
