5 Things Your Dermatologist Wants You To Know

April 26, 2017

Each week, there seems to be a new product or technique to add to the bevy of skincare tricks already out there. So, what’s a girl to do when it comes to keeping her skin radiant and healthy? Here are five things your dermatologist wants you to know about healthy skin:

    1. Avoid the Sun

    The sun’s UV rays are harmful to your sensitive skin and can cause premature aging, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. Avoid exposing yourself to the sun for long periods of time, and when in doubt, wear a hat and apply sunscreen.

    2. Use the Right Ingredients

    With so many skin serums out there, how do you know which ones will work the best? The trick is to find the ones that contain healthy ingredients for your skin, including hyaluronic acid products and a ferulic acid serum. When applying these serums and moisturizers, always layer from thinnest to thickest to help your skin absorb each layer effectively.

    3. Drink Water

    Drinking the recommended eight glasses of water per day is essential to healthy skin. In addition to providing essential electrolytes for hydration, sufficient water also keeps you feeling energized throughout the day.

    4. Plump Your Skin Without the Needles

    Forgo cosmetic surgeries and use the power of ginseng instead. When topically applied, this nutrient helps to stimulate blood flow to your capillaries, resulting in firm and glowing skin.

    5. Remove All of Your Makeup Each Night

    Clogged pores can lead to more than unsightly breakouts. Effectively removing all of your makeup is the gateway to gorgeous, radiant skin. It also helps your face become a clean canvas that is ready and willing to absorb your nightly moisturizers and skin serums.

    From drinking lots of water to using serums containing the right ingredients, you can keep your skin looking younger for much longer.
