Dos and don'ts to keep your skin glowing always
Pamper yourself with the basics. Good skin care and healthy lifestyle choices can help delay the natural aging process and prevent various skin problems. Here are some tips for skin.
Stay away from sun
As soon as a sunburn becomes evident, get out of the sun. Some damage has already been done, and you don't want to harm your skin any more. Stay out of the sun until the burn fades.
Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to 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 damages collagen and elastin the fibers that give your skin its strength and elasticity.
Take a cool bath
It's also important to cool the skin down. But skip the shower. The continual blast of water on your scorched skin will not feel good. Take a bath to cool down the skin gently. Also skip the soap, which will dry the skin out even more. Instead, add a few scoops of baking soda to your bath. It's cooling and helps your skin retain moisture.
