Did you know that the skin is your body’s largest organ? We may not normally think of the skin as an organ, but it plays an extremely important role in both our appearance and health. The skin is the first line of defense against damaging factors like sunlight, wind, and pollutants. When its barrier function is compromised, it can affect both our appearance and health. That is why it is so vitally important to maintain its structure. When you choose the proper skin care products, your skin takes care of you, and you appear more youthful and vibrant.
What Can I Do at Home to Maintain Healthy, Attractive Skin?
There are a couple of things that you can do to allow your skin to shine and be more healthy. One of the main ways to encourage the formation of healthy skin is to remain hydrated throughout the day. Be sure that you are drinking about eight cups of water daily to prevent your skin from drying out and becoming more vulnerable to infection or premature aging.
To lock in all of that moisture, you must apply a good moisturizer each day. The best time is immediately after your bath or shower when it is most hydrated. Apply your moisturizer before your skin has time to dry out, and your skin should remain hydrated all day.
You should also eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, especially those that are colorful, as they contain higher amounts of antioxidants. Antioxidants like vitamin C both protect your skin and encourage the formation of collagen.
The Cure for Dull and Tired Skin
If your skin has lost its vibrancy, even though you are eating well and hydrating, you may want to undergo a skin rejuvenation treatment at Abraza Skin Studio. This includes either microneedling or a Vampire Facial®, both of which can liven up dull skin.
These skin care treatments can also help with fine lines and wrinkles, as well as acne scars and uneven skin texture. Microneedling increases the production of the skin’s natural collagen and elastin, making you appear younger and more radiant. The Vampire Facial® skin care treatment is simply a combination of microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for more dramatic results. After this type of treatment your skin will appear smoother, firmer, and more youthful.
