How To Prevent Premature Aging and Blemishes on Your Face

Woman holding her faceYour face is the first thing everyone sees, including you, whenever you look at the mirror. It is also the first place where signs of aging are displayed for all to see. You can’t stop time, but you can delay some of the signs on your face that betray your age. Here are a few tips.

Wash and cleanse before sleeping

If you had your way, you would crash straight into bed at the end of a long day. But just because you’re tired doesn’t mean the breakouts and infections will take a day off. Remove oil and dirt with mild soap and water. If you’re too tired, at least remove oil, dirt, and makeup with a gentle cleanser on cotton balls.

Get enough sleep

Get as much sleep as possible, preferably at night and in the dark. The rest gives your skin the chance to repair itself. Dark circles under the eyes are also usually a sign that you’re not getting enough rest.

Avoid too much coffee and smoking

Coffee dehydrates you, and dehydration is your skin’s enemy. Cigarette smoke slowly destroys everything it touches, and your skin is not spared. Minimize such habits and be kinder to your skin. Speaking of dehydration, liquor does that to your skin too.

Exercise

Regular exercise is beneficial for the entire body. It also gives your skin a healthy glow and staves off stress, which is bad for your skin, as well.

Get fillers

Fillers like Juvederm in Utah can help hide the fine lines and wrinkles on your face. Head to a clinic at least once a year for the treatment. Of course, this is a supplementary move to your healthier skin regimen.

Don’t touch your face, if you can help it

Unless you have to touch it, keep your hands off your face. Your fingertips have bacteria from everything else you’ve touched – your smartphone, computer keyboard, stacks of paper, etc. – and you’re transferring the germs to your face if you touch it.

Resist the urge to pop

Do you pop every pimple on your face? That causes the pores to enlarge. Avoid touching pimples. Get a facial now and then and invest in products that gently prevent acne.

Whatever your age, if you take care of your skin, you may look younger, longer.
