Today, we’re going to talk about three skin problems that nobody wants to live with. They cause a lot of distress, and will seriously interrupt your beauty regime. Thankfully, there are plenty of tips and advice you can use to sort out any of these problems.
Wrinkles are an issue we all fear at some point in our lives. Sadly, they’re also a problem that can’t really be avoided. At some point, you will develop wrinkles, no matter how hard you try to prevent them.
Having said that, there are plenty of things you can do to postpone the signs of wrinkles, and ensure your skin is nice and smooth for as long as possible. Typically, we get wrinkles as we get older, and our skin becomes more loose and saggy. This is normally because the collagen in our skin cells becomes less elastic, making our skin thinner and less taught. As a result, the best way to combat this is by producing more collagen to help our skin regain that elasticated feeling. One way you can do this is by consuming more vitamin A, which helps with collagen production. In the beauty world, you usually get this by using products containing retinol. As it mentions on www.retinol.com, this is a derivative of vitamin A. Creams and solutions including this will work wonders for your face and help stop wrinkles from appearing. If you look at the ingredients in most anti-aging serums, they will all include retinol as one of the key parts of it.
Aside from old age, wrinkles can also occur because of facial expressions. I’m sure you’ve all noticed this when you frown and get those lines on your forehead. These lines can be the first wrinkles most of us see, and they will occur from a young age. To combat this issue, try and frown less! A lot of us find ourselves frowning because of the sun shining in our eyes. In which case, always carry a pair of sunglasses to prevent frowning and slow down wrinkle appearance!
Acne affects so many people, normally younger people in their teens and late adulthood. However, adults can still get acne too, and the effects of acne when you’re young will linger for a long time as well. In simple terms, acne is the appearance of lots of spots all at once. However, it’s usually much harder to deal with acne than it is to deal with one or two breakouts. As it states on www.niams.nih.gov, acne is actually classified as a disorder. It makes your pores excessively oily, meaning spots occur almost daily.
Thankfully, acne can be avoided and prevented. Treatments vary, from home solutions to seeing a doctor and being prescribed different things. We’re not going to talk about any medicines you can take in this guide, as it’s advisable to learn about these from a proper medical professional. All I’ll say is that some can be ingested and some can be applied directly to your skin, and they help prevent acne scars too.
As for the home solutions, there are a plethora of things you can consider. One of which is to clear the oil from your pores by exfoliating and cleansing your skin. Wash your face with a cleanser every single morning and night, while also exfoliating sporadically. I suggest using a facemask now and then for a really deep clean of your pores. Also, avoid using moisturizers or other beauty products that leave your skin feeling oily. This will further enhance your acne, and won’t help you get rid of it. Look after your skin and keep it clean, and you will go a long way to preventing acne as well.
Dry skin is an issue that most people will deal with in their life, but is thankfully fairly easy to treat. When you have dry skin, it usually means your skin isn’t getting enough moisture. This leads to a rough texture, and you’ll often see peeling or chapped bits on your face or body.
The easiest way to treat this skin problem is by moisturizing religiously. Use a top-quality moisturizer that’s non-greasy and helps hydrate your skin. Ones that include aloe vera extract are recommended as this is linked to repairing damaged skin too. It suggests on www.aad.org that you moisturize as soon as you step out of the shower or bath too. Use a product like Curel Hydra Therapy that you put on before you get out of the shower to lock moisture in!
Take extra care when the weather is cold too, as cold air will dry out your skin a lot quicker than warm air.
Hopefully, the advice in this article will help all of you that suffer from any of these persistent skin problems!
