Skin care tips – DO’s

Protect yourself from the sun apply sunscreen of at least SPF 30 that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Long term sun exposure can cause early skin ageing with wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems. Make sure the label reads ‘noncomedogenic’ so that the product does not block pores. Apply sunscreen generously, and reapply every two hours
Do regular self examination of your entire skin at least once a month – to detect any new odd looking growth or spots, changing moles etc
Invest in good quality medical grade skincare products
Wash your face twice a day in the morning and at night
Double cleanse at night use a cleansing oil to get rid of your makeup and built up dirt and debris and follow up with a gel or cream-based cleanser
Exfoliate once or twice a week this will help to slough off dead skin cells and unclog pores for fresh radiant skin. This will also help with texture and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Moreover this will allow for your skin care products to penetrate deeper
Wash your hands before you wash your face as bacteria and germs on your skin may cause breakouts
Wash your makeup off at the end of the day as leaving it on overnight clogs the pores which may cause blemishes and blackheads
Get skin treatments every 4-6 weeks and also use at home skin care routine
Eat plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, salads, whole grains, lean proteins and essential vitamins. A diet rich in fish oil or fish oil supplements and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined sugars/carbohydrates will promote younger looking skin
Exercise regularly as running, jogging and yoga will give your body the necessary blood circulation, and also accelerate the cleansing process of your body
Get at least 8 hours of good quality sleep every night as this will allow skin to repair itself – tired skin sags
Hydrate yourself drink lots of water daily, at least 8 glasses if not more
De-stress take out time for yourself and try to avoid stress as much as possible as stress causes your body to produce cortisol and other hormones, making the skin more oily and causing breakouts
Treat your skin gently limit bath/shower time; avoid strong soaps that strip oil from your skin. Instead, choose mild cleansers; pat dry after washing or bathing or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains on your skin
Moisturise dry skin use a moisturiser that fits your skin type
