Tips on skin care

The skin is the largest organ in the body. It weighs between 2.5 and 4 kg and has a surface area of approximately 1.67 m². The skin performs important functions in the body: it separates us from the outside world, from the body and helps it perceive cold or heat from the outside world.


Diseases that irritate, clog, or inflame the skin cause redness, inflammation, burning, or itching. Allergies, genetic makeup, and some diseases of the immune system cause hives, dermatitis, eczema, acne, and other skin disorders. The most common conditions that protect the body against bacteria or viruses that cause infections, regulate skin temperature are dermatitis, skin allergies, acne and psoriasis.

Skin Care Tips - Most Important Steps:

To avoid these problems it is very important to follow a rigorous daily care of our skin. I advise a series of very important measures:

Take care of your skin:

GOOD SKIN HYGIENE.

We must limit the baths and showers with hot water because they eliminate the natural oils of the skin. It is recommended to use warm water instead of hot water. We should avoid using strong oils and detergents because they remove natural oils from the skin. It is convenient to wash, shower and bathe with a soap with neutral Ph and with dermoprotective properties to protect our skin.


CORRECT USE OF APPROPRIATE CREAMS.

It is very important to hydrate our skin with moisturizers after showering or bathing. We can also use therapeutic creams to treat different diseases such as atopic dermatitis, acne psoriasis, etc.

Anti-stretch mark creams with skin firming properties that reduce stretch marks, I advise in this comparison

Anti-cellulite creams reduce cellulite and prevent the formation of cellulite nodules on the legs, abdomen, buttocks and other areas. I offer more information with this cream.


CORRECT USE OF CLOTHING.

Our clothing must be loose and comfortable, avoiding wearing very tight garments that tighten because they hinder the correct blood circulation in the skin and favor the appearance of dermopathies. It is also advisable to dress in 100% cotton clothing because it favors proper skin perspiration.

AVOID HITS AND INJURIES.

After washing or bathing, dab on your skin so that some moisture remains to prevent the skin from being damaged.

Shave carefully to avoid small cuts or wounds appear on your skin. Whenever you shave, you should use cream, lotion or skin softening and protective gel before shaving.


PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE SUN:

A lifetime of exposure to the sun can cause wrinkles, skin blemishes and also increases the risk of skin cancer and melanomas.


Use sunscreen during the summer or when you go to the beach and pool. It is advisable to use sunscreen with at least 15 sun protection and apply one or more layers on our skin.

Protect yourself by staying in shady places. We must avoid exposure to the sun between 10 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon.

Wear protective clothing with clothing that covers our skin areas exposed to the sun such as pants, long-sleeved blouses, hats with long brims.

DO NOT SMOKE.
Smoking degenerates and ages our skin contributing to the formation of wrinkles because it narrows the blood vessels that are under our skin, which eliminates oxygen and other nutrients that are also important for our skin.

Smoking also damages collagen and elastin which are the fibers that give elasticity to our skin and also increases the risk of squamous cell carcinoma.

Eat a healthy diet.
It is very important to drink more than 8 glasses of water a day to keep our skin well hydrated and avoid the appearance of wrinkles due to dehydration.

Follow an eating plan with foods rich in vitamins A, C, B1, B9 or folic acid and vitamin E. The intake of some mineral salts such as selenium and zinc and omega-3 fatty acids is also necessary.
