Our body and skin go through drastic changes over the first 20 years. These changes are visible and can be felt. Yet the changes don’t stop, although they become less visible, yet can be felt.
When you enter your 30’s, your skin starts to undergo changes and brings along certain skin problems. These changes are a result of hormonal changes that once again hit at 30. The common belief is that the changes related to hormones occur at 18, but the fact is, at 18 the hormonal levels are 900 and at 30 it drops down to 200. This change contributes to the undesirable changes in the skin such as crows feet, adult acne, dull and saggy skin to name a few.
Despite disturbing changes in your skin, there are effective ways which could incredibly deal with such problems.
First things first. Before going for a moisturizer, an exfoliator or any other skin agent, you should have a rule of thumb intact to keep your skin healthy; always cleanse your skin. Wash your face, arms, and legs before you go to bed. Also, remove makeup before you hit the sack.
2. Keep it Moisturized
Skin needs some amount of moisture, but it varies from person to person. Our skin can be classified anywhere between dry and oily, depending on the moisture present in it. There is a wide range of moisturizers on the market which suffice the moisture needs for all kinds of skin. If you have a dry skin, you can go for a water-based moisturizer and if it is oily you can use an oil-based moisturizer.
The best time to exfoliate is in the night as the skin renews overnight. Exfoliate your skin gently and if your skin is oily or you suffer from acne, do not exfoliate daily, instead do it twice a week.
4. Use Sunscreen
Ultra Violet A and B rays, popularly known as UVA and UVB rays are responsible for the skin damage. You should apply UVA/UVB sun protection every time. A popular belief though is, one should apply these creams in summers only when the sunlight is most intense. In fact, UVA/UVB sun protection lotions or creams should be applied around the year.
5. Before you sleep
Night can get you if you don’t get your makeup off. Sleep on the makeup and you could get pink eyes or pimples. Make sure to wash it off before you sleep. Nights are also a good time for rejuvenating your skin. Moisturize, treat your lips, cuticles, and heels before the bedtime.
Wondering how working out could be good for the skin? Well, apart from keeping the body healthy, working out cleanse your skin and nourishes the blood cells. This helps in flushing out the waste from the skin.
