Healthy Habits for Good Skin and Skin Care Health

You’re probably reading this article because you’re concerned about having too much acne, or you simply want to look great. Well, you’re on the right path. We are going to discuss your skin and why you’re doing the right thing by trying to learn about skin care. Also, we will give you healthy habits to achieve—and maintain—great-looking skin!

Healthy Habits to Adopt

Whatever age you are right now, these are the basics of healthy skin care habits to get your groove back!

1. Watch Your Diet

Avoid stuffing your face with too many sweets, fried, and processed food. The main culprits that ruin your skin are:

  • soda, which damages your collagen
  • booze, which zaps the moisture making you look older than you are
  • candy, which can inflame your skin
  • and coffee, which dehydrates the skin

2. Wash Your Face

Do this twice a day. No more, no less. Washing your face six times a day, or not washing your face for three days straight, will damage your skin.

3. Make Sunscreen Your Best Friend

The sun can brighten your day. But the downside is its harmful UV rays that can dry your skin and might even cause skin cancer. Don’t step outdoors without sunscreen.

4. Oil-Free Moisturizer

Basic moisturizers can cause oily skin. Get an oil-free, lightweight one to avoid blocking your pores.

5. Exercise

Working out improves your circulation, and good circulation improves your skin. Don’t forget to shower and give your face a good wash after exercising. Dead skin cells and bacteria will stick to your skin and clog your pores if you ignore this crucial step.

When Should You Start with Healthy Skin Care Habits?

Experts say that the best time to start taking care of your skin is before you hit your 25th birthday. Okay, maybe you’re in your 30’s now. But, as they say, it’s never too late to start. And better now than never!
It’s only logical that we should start building an effective skin care routine in our 20’s because that’s when our skin is at its beautiful best. So this is the best time to practice healthy skin care habits as a form of a preventive measure.
We want that youthful 20’s skin to extend until our late 40s, don’t we?

In Your 20’s

This is the time when your skin is glowing, radiant, and plump. Credit it to the loads of protein that are naturally manufactured in your twenty-something body. Sure, you may have that occasional zit, but girl. You still look great.
Collagen, the protein responsible for providing strength and structure to our skin and bones, is at its peak production in the 20’s. This is why you have that bright, youthful complexion without a single wrinkle.
Skin Care Habits to Adopt
You can preserve this amazing appearance by adopting a daily skin care routine, the effects of which will extend for years to come. Cardinal beauty rules for this decade are daily moisturizing, exfoliating, toning, and cleansing.

In Your 30’s

Studies say that the 30’s is the best decade. The aimlessness and financial distress of your 20’s is over, and you haven’t reached yet the midlife crisis of the 40’s and 50’s. However, your skin is beginning to age.
Spots and wrinkles begin to come out; worse, your skin begins to sag, losing that youthful elasticity. It looks a little dull, too. Moreover, dead cells start to clog onto the surface of your skin, dimming your beautiful glow.
But don’t fret. Every problem has a solution.
Skin Care Habits to Adopt
Continue the skin care regimen of your 20’s, but add a hydrating mask. But do this weekly. You may want to use a light cleanser in the morning with micellar water. Go deep into your dermal layers by getting a serum that will hydrate your skin and guard it against free radicals.

In Your 40’s

Your 40’s will, unfortunately, be characterized by a tired appearance, especially around your eyes. Your skin will also start sagging in the jaw and neck area.
These changes are due to loss of volume and firmness in your skin, as well as sensitivity to the sun. Many women also begin the journey to menopause in their 40’s, losing estrogen hormones along the way. In some cases, this may cause acne.
Smile and embrace the beauty of aging! But not without taking care of your skin.
Skin Care Habits to Adopt
Use thick hydrating creams, retinols, and peptides. Exfoliate more regularly, increase your water intake to help your skin retain moisture (and get your organs up and running!). This is also the age when you should be including something for your neck in your skin care regimen.

In Your 50’s

Definitely characterized by more pronounced wrinkles and your skin now easily dries. This is the decade when your hormones begin to fluctuate, and this shows on your skin. If you’ve spent years under the sun, you’ll also notice some roughness and sunspots.
There is an intense decline in collagen, and gravity is pulling the skin around your jaws and eyes down. This is the time when all traces of youth start to disappear. Don’t stress too much about your appearance; focus on your health—which includes the health of your skin. This, in turn, improves your appearance.
Skin Care Habits to Adopt
Quit indoor tanning as it often speeds up the aging process! When washing your face, pick a mild cleanser over a random soap bar. Quit smoking, as the toxins in your cigarette smoke will make your skin look duller, leathery, and about 70 years old. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get your beauty rest as much as possible.

The Bottom Line

Being concerned about your skin is not about vanity or being superficial. Looking great will give you confidence, and confidence will attract plenty of good things in your life. Proper skin care will also prevent skin conditions, and worse, something as serious as skin cancer.
So whatever decade you are in right now, cheer up and chin up! You are beautiful— it’s just a matter of keeping it that way by adopting a healthy skin care routine. Always discuss the health of your skin with an expert before trying out a new product or a skin care regimen.
