We all want to take care of our skin, but what do dermatologists have to say? Here are a few of our favorite dermatologist-approved skin tips that you can start at home immediately.
Remove Your Makeup
This might seem like a no-brainer, but make it a point to always remove your makeup at the end of the day. Keeping your skin healthy starts with creating a clean environment where your skin can thrive, making sure it isn’t clogged up with the grime from the previous day.
Along with cleaning off your makeup, giving your makeup brushes a weekly wash can also make a difference because they can harbor acne-causing bacteria.
Get Enough Sleep
Anyone who’s pulled an all-nighter can tell you the effect it has on your skin. The dark circles under the eyes, the pale complexion…without sleep your skin just isn’t getting what it needs. Making sure you get a good night’s sleep ensures that your skin gets the blood flow and repair required for a glowing complexion. If you have trouble sleeping, consider taking a melatonin supplement before bed to help you get those extra hours of sleep!
You’ve heard us say it before, and we’ll say it again – don’t forget your sunscreen! Exposure to the sun’s UV rays is the number one cause of both premature aging and skin cancer. A good broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 applied daily can protect your skin from damage, and keep you looking youthful!
Eat More Green Veggies
Green veggies are great for a healthy lifestyle, but did you know they also affect your skin? Getting in dark, leafy greens like spinach or kale can seriously impact your skin’s glow because they provide so much of what your skin needs.
Greens provide a huge source of vitamin A, which can slow down sebum production and bring acne to a halt, and vitamin E protects against damage from free radicals and folate for cell renewal. These are just a few of the benefits, so add a salad or a green smoothie to your diet ASAP!
