Among these few tips are skin treatments and protection but also lifestyle changes that go big distances into saving you from pain and money in the future.

Tip #1 It's a smoke free area.

Besides making you look older since it accelerates the wrinkles production it also almost blocks the oxygen and important nutrients from reaching the skin and reduces the blood flow on the small blood vessels of the skin along with damaging the elastin and collagen which are the responsible for the skin’s elasticity and strength. So sorry to bust that smoky bubble, but it's better to just quit… besides skin is not the only one harmed by this bad habit.

Tip #2 Stay on a healthy diet.

You are what you eat, says that old saying… And your skin is the first place it shows. Besides making you look great, it will make you feel how you look. There is no clear connection between your diet and skin breakouts but certain studies suggest that a diet of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, rich in vitamin C and low in refined carbohydrates and unhealthy fats can make your skin look and feel younger.

Tip #3 Protect your skin from the Sun.

It is the number one source of age spots and wrinkles, along with other serious skin problems that include skin cancer. After you shower and before stepping out, apply sunscreen of at least 15 SPF on your skin, carry some with you and keep applying every two hours if you plan on staying outdoors, also try to stay in the shade and wear clothing that can cover your skin. There are great skin care products and even moisturizing cream that already contain SPF as part of their ingredients.

Tip #4 Keep calm and relax.

Those uncontrolled feelings of anger and stress could contribute to a sensitive skin and produce breakouts like acne. Organize your work load, handle your personal problems calmly and set time aside for doing the things you like. Look for ways to relax, activities that can help take your mind off what’s troubling you.

Tip #5 Pamper your skin.

Daily routines could damage your skin. Deep cleansing and shaving alone could make things worse and be the opposite of your initial intentions, making your skin look clean. Keep your warm baths and showers to short periods of time, emphasis on the word “warm” not hot. Also when stepping out of your shower or bath, pat dry the excess water and not just scrubbing it with a towel. When shaving, use a lubricant gel, lotion or shaving cream, hopefully with moisturizing properties. Also try using a sharp and clean to shave in the direction the hair grows, going against it, will open the pours and make it prone to cuts. Finally, moisturize daily. It is important to look for a moisturizer that goes with your skin type, dry, oily or normal.
