Tips for a healthy skin

With a few small changes in your lifestyle, you can make your skin look healthier without spending a lot of money.

The most important external factor in the aging process of the skin is undoubtedly the sun. Sufficient exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun causes the skin to lose its elasticity, color tone and surface irregularities. Many types of skin cancer and stubborn skin diseases are also triggered by the sun’s rays. Lifelong protection is essential because the effects of ultraviolet rays that cause photoaging are cumulative. In sunny seasons, the main recommendations are to use an umbrella, wide hat and sunglasses with suitable filters during the midday hours. Applying suitable sunscreen to the face, neck and chest area exposed directly to the sun and repeating it frequently during the day is the most important condition to prevent sun damage and skin aging.

Cigarette consumption negatively contributes to the aging process of the skin in ways similar to sun damage. Cigarette consumption is shown as the external factor that causes the formation of wrinkles the most after sun damage. Therefore, a healthy skin appearance and cigarette consumption cannot be considered together.

Alpha hydroxy acids, found in many anti-aging cosmetic products, can repair skin surface irregularities at low non-irritating concentrations. Vitamin A derivatives (tretinoin, isotretinoin, adapelene, etc.) recommended by your doctor may be needed for further effects. The use of these drugs increases the production of connective tissue components such as collagen, accelerates the cell production-destruction process, repairs color irregularities and partially regresses cancer-precursor changes. As a result, a brighter, lively and refreshed appearance is obtained. Observation of positive effects takes time and caution should be exercised against the irritating effect of these substances.

In addition to being vital for the healthy functioning of the circulatory system and kidneys, adequate water consumption during the day is important for the consistency and elasticity of the skin.

These small suggestions that will not tire your purse are a good start to what you can do to make your skin look more beautiful. You can view following these simple rules as a profitable investment for your future. The earlier you implement these warnings, the less dermocosmetic intervention you will need in the future. I wish you healthy days.
