Skincare Tips from Millies

Don't have time for intensive skin care regime? Join the cue! Pamper yourself with the basics. Good skin care and healthy lifestyle choices can really help delay the natural aging process and prevent various skin problems. Get started with these five no-brainer tips.

  1. Protect yourself from the sun

Use sunscreen. Don’t use anything less than an SPF of at least 20. SPF 30 is Ideal. When you're outdoors, reapply sunscreen every two hours. Make sure to read the bottle carefully that it protects again UVA and UVB, a lot of sunscreens mention it is UV protected!

  1. Don't smoke

Smoking will always makes your skin look older and contributes to fine and deep wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin, which decreases blood flow. This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important to skin health. Smoking also has a big effect on your collagen and elastin.

  1. Be Gentle with your Skin

  2. Eat a healthy diet

A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Make sure they are plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins in your meals. The association between diet and acne isn't clear — but some research suggests that a diet rich in vitamin C and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin. Supplements are also a fantastic addition to help with keeping both healthy on the inside and out.

  1. Manage stress

This goes without saying, Try not get stressed out. Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin — and a healthy state of mind — take steps to manage your stress. Set reasonable limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy. The results might be more dramatic than you expect.
