Dermatology Experts Share 5 Tips for Healthy Skin at Any Age, Queens, New York

When most people think about “skin problems,” images of teenage acne, wrinkles, or sunspots all come to mind. And while common, there are certainly more problems than acne and wrinkles that could cause imperfect skin. How do you keep your own skin healthy, glowing, and clear? The dermatology experts at Medex Diagnostic and Treatment Center in Forest Hills, NY, outline their list of five top tips for maintaining healthy skin no matter what your age or stage in life.

Wear Sunscreen

Wearing sunscreen every day is perhaps the most important (and impactful) skin tip to follow because of all the ways it can benefit your skin. Even when it’s cloudy or overcast outside, the sun can still do some damage. By making sunscreen and regular skin care screenings a part of your routine, you can dramatically lower your risk for skin cancer, sunspots, premature wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

Stay Hydrated

Just as water is important to keep your organs and mind running smoothly, it is just as essential for your skin. Water helps flush out toxins and keeps your cells and tissues healthy and hydrated. Applying a moisturizer right after a bath or shower will also help lock in water lost throughout the day for healthier skin.

De-Stress

Idermatologyn addition to breakouts and tired-looking skin, stress can actually start to break down our skin prematurely if it’s not well-managed. Dermatology experts recommend scheduling time to relax, unwind, and regroup from stress regularly. Whether that means reading a book, taking a long run, or spending a few minutes meditating, de-stressing is essential for good health.

Eat Well

Fast foods and soda are bad for our waistlines — and our skin. Eating greasy, fatty, and otherwise unhealthy foods can contribute to excessive weight, breakouts, and less-than-stellar skin. Eat a well-balanced diet to keep your skin and body looking and feeling good.

Sleep

Nighttime is when our bodies flush out all the wastes in our bodies, repair tissues, and restore our energy to take on the next day. If you skimp on sleep, you’re not giving your body enough time to recover. In addition to feeling more tired and stressed than usual, sleeping less than seven to eight hours a night can also break down tissues and leave you looking a little worse-for-wear. Get enough sleep to avoid premature wrinkles, breakouts, and dullness.
