You don’t have to shell out hundreds and thousands of dollars to achieve youthful, glowing skin. It all comes down to going back to the basics of skin care; most of which will cost you nothing or just a few dollars. Dr. Jennifer Parker Porter of Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery provides clients with a variety of prescription skin care products to promote optimum skin health.
Below is a rundown of basic skin care tips for women of all ages:
1. Avoid prolonged sun exposure. This is one of the easiest and cheapest way to take care of your skin. It is quite ironic to note that lots of individuals, particularly women, are willing to sunbathe for hours just to get that certain level of tan. Be consistent with your sunblock even during cloudy days. By doing so, you will avoid the premature appearance of wrinkles.
2. Get enough sleep. While 6 to 8 hours has been considered the standard amount of hours of getting enough snooze, sleep as long as needed to feel well-rested. Your skin heals itself from daily rigors such as pollutants while you’re off in dreamland.
3. You are what you put into your mouth. A balanced diet and a no smoking ban imposed on yourself will surely make your skin glow and be more youthful-looking.
4. As always, cleanse, tone and moisturize. The skin care products offered by Dr. Jennifer Parker Porter are designed for different skin care types.
