3 Essential Habits for Skin Care , Koolaupoko, Hawaii

Developing good habits for your skin is essential to your well-being. Beyond preventing wrinkles and having smooth skin, proper skin care helps keep your whole body healthy. The following guide will encourage you to stick to healthy habits.

What Can You Do to Keep Your Skin Healthy?

1. Hydrate

LIke all cells, skin cells need water to stay supple. Replenishing it regularly is essential not only for your skin, but also for your overall health. The amount of water you should drink depends on many factors, but the general guideline is 11.5 cups of water a day for women and 15.5 cups for men. Try carrying around a water bottle everywhere you go to remind you to drink. You might also infuse the water with fruit or drink flavored sparkling water to change up the taste.

2. Wear Sunscreen

skin careIt’s easy to forget to bring sunscreen when you go to the beach, but you’re risking more than just a sunburn. 1 in 5 Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70 and getting five or more sunburns doubles your risk of developing melanoma. Add a moisturizer that has sunscreen in it to your morning skin care routine and cover up as much as possible when you’re exposed to the sun for an extended period.

3. Sleep

Adults should sleep for at least 7-9 hours per night. While you sleep, your body hydrates your skin and helps to prevent wrinkles. One notable issue that comes from lack of sleep is undereye bags. Increase how much you sleep every night by shutting off screens an hour before bedtime and reducing your caffeine intake, especially later in the day.
