Simple changes to your daily routine can add up to big differences in the overall health and appearance of your skin. Here are a few to bear in mind from the Bangkok Hospital Siriroj’s Cosmetic Skin Center.
Drink lots and lots of water
Proper hydration is essential to maintaining the elasticity of your skin. For a youthful glow, few things matter more than the simple act of drinking the recommended amount of water daily.
Be sure to get adequate rest
It might feel like you’re not doing anything when you sleep, but this crucial time period is when the body repairs itself. Most people need between seven and nine hours of sleep every night. If you short-change yourself, you will start to notice the difference in your face.
Use sunscreen every single day
The single best thing you can do for your skin is to shield it from harmful UV rays as much as possible. Wear SPF 30+ with PA factor 2+ or above sunscreen every day and wear hats if you plan on spending considerable time outdoors in the sun. Repeat applying sunscreen every 8 hours if you stay indoor. Every 2 hours for outdoor and every 40-80 minutes for water activity.
Remember to wash your face with a gentle cleanser morning and night
It might sound simple, but the act of washing your face with a gentle, ph-balanced, water-based cleanser every morning and evening helps remove built up dirt and impurities that can clog your pores and irritate your skin. This cuts down on your your risk of acne, which can leave permanent marks or scars on your skin. Keep in mind do not ruin your face by washing your face too frequent.
Always remember to remove your makeup
Ladies, take note. At the end of a long day, it can be tempting to simply flop into bed. Especially if you wear heavy concealers or foundations, however, leaving your makeup on can clog your pores. Always take the time to remove your makeup and cleanse your face.
Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise
With so many different skin care products on the market, it can be confusing to know which one to use. At the end of the day, however, the most important thing is not so much which brand of moisturiser you choose, but that you apply it consistently. Yes, some high-end brands may sink in faster or offer slightly different results, but many beauty products across the price spectrum rely on similar active ingredients. Find a brand that works for your skin and price point and remember to use it.
