Improving My Skin Health

From the time I was a teenager to only a few years ago, I suffered with terrible skin. Some parts of my face were dry and flaky, while other sections were oily and covered in pimples. I wanted to fix my skin problems once and for all, which is why I made an appointment with a dermatologist a few years ago. After meeting with my skin doctor, he evaluated my skin and helped me to figure out what to do to fix the issue. My dermatologist helped me to overcome years of trouble with my skin, and I want everyone to know about my successes. Check out this website to see how a dermatologist might be able to help you.

Best Ways To Care For Your Skin To Avoid Skin Problems


The more effort you put in to keeping your skin healthy, the better you will look and feel. If you neglect your skin then it can lead to an array of issues, such as dry skin, acne, and even premature wrinkles. The information given to you below will provide you with tips on how to protect your skin and keep it properly clean and hydrated, so you can avoid a lot of future skin problems.

Use sunblock when you go outside

Any time you are going to be spending some time out in the sunlight, you want to make sure you wear sunblock. It's important to understand that you don't only need to wear sun block on sunny days. Even overcast days still allow dangerous UV rays to reach your skin. Protecting your skin from the sun can prevent wrinkles, sun spots and skin cancer. When you apply sunblock, make sure you apply it to all areas of your skin that are exposed to the sun, including those often forgotten spots like the tips of your ears and the back of your neck.

Remove all your makeup each night

If you wear makeup, you want to make sure you remove it completely each evening. Otherwise, the makeup will clog your pores and this can lead to acne. You can use a makeup removing cream or face cleansing wipes to remove the makeup. After you remove it, wash thoroughly with a mild facial soap and warm water.

Exfoliate your skin

When you start to notice your skin getting dry, you should exfoliate. This will help to remove dead skin cells to keep your skin as healthy as possible. You can use a facial scrub or a loofah to gently exfoliate the skin on your face.

Don't pop your pimples

When you have pimples, you don't want to pop them. Instead, clean your face with a facial scrub and warm water. This will naturally cause the puss to come out without you popping them. When you pop a pimple, you can cause scars to appear on your face.

Stay hydrated

Making sure you drink enough water will help you to stay hydrated. When you are properly hydrated, your skin will be moister and this means it will naturally be healthier.

 Use soft water

By having a soft water system installed in your home, you will be using water that's much healthier for your skin. Soft water won't have the high levels of calcium, magnesium and iron that hard water has. This means you will be putting a more pure form of water on your skin when you wash. This helps to keep your skin healthier, cleaner and softer. If you notice your water starts to feel squeaky again then you should have the soft water system looked at and possibly repaired. Soft water should feel slippery if the system is working correctly.
