New York Skin Reveals Surprisingly Easy Secrets to Gorgeous Skin

With so many notions and potions being hawked on late-night TV it is easy to be drawn into believing that all the skin needs to look great is the newest scientifically-advanced cream. However, it is crucial to understand that everything on the outside of the body starts on the inside, and this is proven by comparing how the skin of people who take care of themselves looks next to those who don’t. Here are what doctors from New York Skin say will help your skin stay gorgeous:

 

 

 

Protect Your Skin from the Sun

While it is important to get a little sun every day, for natural vitamin D production, years of over exposure to the sun is the surest way to achieve that dreaded wrinkled look and increase the risk of skin cancer. The simplest and best solution is to use a moisturizer with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15. Very light-skin types should use a 30 SPF.

Don’t Smoke

Smoking will cause the tiny blood vessels in the top layers of your skin to narrow and decrease blood flow, depleting the skin cells of life giving of oxygen and other nutrients. Smoking will also damage elastin and collagen, which gives skin elasticity and strength.

Wash and Dry

Limit the time spent washing and avoid harsh soaps and cleansers. Harsh detergents leach oil from the skin and will led to premature aging and wrinkles. Instead of soap, use a mild exfoliating cleanser that is free of detergents and perfumes. Clean glasses frequently to keep skin oil from building up around your nose and eyes. After washing, gently pat your skin dry, instead of rubbing, with a clean soft towel.

Eat Healthy

As the saying goes, you are what you eat and a healthy diet will help your skin looking youthful. Whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean proteins will supply your body with the essential building blocks to produce collagen and elastin as well as bolstering the immune system to help fight off free radicals that can damage skin cells.

Manage Stress Levels

Excessive stress produces cortisol, and excess cortisol will inhibit immune system functioning and lead to damaged skin. Unmanaged stress can trigger acne breakouts at any age, and cause other skin issues as well. The best way to manage stress is to scale back the to-do list by learning what is urgent and what is important. Take care of what is urgent today, and leave the important stuff until tomorrow.
