5 Changes In Your Lifestyle That Can Result In Having Healthier Skin

Having healthy skin is an important yet challenging task, one that demands your attention from a young age. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, responsible for regulating your temperature and for protecting you from microbes. This organ is also the first to show any signs of illness or aging, and should be cared for in different ways that aren’t limited to just applying lotion a couple of times a week.

Here are 5 ways in which you can improve the health of your skin by simply switching up a little bit of your lifestyle:

Avoid Stress

Stress can make your skin greasy or dry while also producing sudden bouts of acne and rashes. A study of college students found correlations between stress and people who suffered from hair loss, scaly skin, rashes, acne, and more.

Don’t Smoke

Smoking accelerates aging, reducing your skin’s elasticity and causing your collagen to breakdown. Medical News Today also claims that the gestures you make while smoking, especially for people who smoke regularly, can also create wrinkles and marks on your face.

Keep Your Skin Moisturized

Moisturizing your skin is a very important habit that should be promoted from an early age. The American Academy of Dermatology suggests showering for 5 to 10 minutes a day to avoid excessive washing, using light soaps, and to moisturize immediately after showering or bathing, trapping in the elements of the lotion before your skin dries off.

Sleep

Sleeping between 7 or 9 hours a night is a basic requirement for healthy skin, eliminating dark circles and bags under your eyes. Poor sleepers age faster and find it harder to heal the lesions on their skin.
