Using good quality skin care products, and having a healthy lifestyle are essential to maintain a radiant, beautiful complexion. Skin Management System by Dr. Strauss provides you with the greatest quality products to properly care for your skin, but there are some lifestyle tips that you can keep in mind to prevent accelerated skin aging.
First and most importantly – protect yourself from the sun. Photoaging is the biggest factor in skin aging, and makes the biggest impact in loss of elasticity and wrinkle development. Protect yourself by wearing sunscreen daily to areas that are exposed. It is also important to remember to limit your skin’s exposure to the sun during the hours of the day when the sun is strongest. Try to keep in shaded areas from about 10 am until 2 pm to avoid the strongest UV rays.
Not getting enough sleep will not only affect how well your mind works, and your health, it can also have a negative effect on your skin. Inadequate sleep can also cause premature skin aging. While we sleep the skin has the chance to repair damage, and not getting enough sleep will hinder this process. Although not everyone will need the same amount of sleep every night, if you find yourself drowsy and unrested, this is a sure sign that you aren’t getting enough. Giving yourself adequate rest each night will help prevent premature aging and give your skin more time to repair itself.
As discussed in other blogs, hydrating the skin is key to maintaining fullness, and to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Topical application of high quality skin care products like the Multi-Action Hydrating, Regenerating and Lifting Concentrate will help keep your skin hydrated from the outside. But it is important to remember to drink enough water daily to provide a source of water for the body to deliver to your skin. Combining hydrating skin care products with proper water consumption will ensure your skin stays hydrated and looks your best.
Antioxidants are a common ingredient in Skin Management System by Dr. Strauss because of how effective they are in protecting the skin and improving its appearance. But to optimize your antioxidant intake, you can incorporate antioxidant rich foods into your diet. Spinach, sweet potatoes, and colourful berries are a great source of antioxidants that help improve your overall health and the appearance of your skin!
These are just a few ways you can adjust your daily routine to help optimize your skin care. Contact us with any questions you have about this blog or our products!
