When you have a problem with your skin like acne for example, people would recommend that you see a dermatologist. A dermatologist is a doctor that deals with problems involving the skin, hair, nails, and other membranes of the body. They are not often seen as surgical doctors, but when it is necessary, dermatologists perform operations as well. Moreover, dermatology is the study of the conditions faced by the mentioned body parts whether it’s a disease or a disorder.
That being said, consulting a dermatologist is important if you want to ensure that you are using the right products for your face, neck, and body. For sure, drugstore products are dermatologically tested and they pass certain standards for people to use them without complications. However, not all drugstore products answer your skin care problems for you. Dermatology and skin care work hand-in-hand in improving and solving your physical woes.
To save you a Dermatology visit, here are a few tips to swear by in ensuring healthy skin for all skin types:
- Keep yourself hydrated
This is probably the most common advice any dermatologist (or doctor) would give you. Water is important because it keeps your body hydrated. It helps in keeping the moisture of your skin as well as a healthy and continuous blood flow in all parts of the body. However, it doesn’t stop there because hydration isn’t only about the liquid you take in. It is also about what you apply on your skin that keeps it moisturized. You can use serums, essential oils, and moisturizers to lock in that moisture.
- Protect yourself from the sun
Sunblock is not just one step in the skin care regimen. It is a must for every person because of the harmful effects the sun can do to your skin. Too much exposure to UV rays can even lead to skin cancer. Before this gets worse, put on some Jacket Sunscreen developed by Dr. Balshi and try to cover yourself up with a hat or a scarf.
- Avoid junk foods in general
The effect of junk foods on the body is already too popular to discuss. The amount of sodium and sugar it has just doesn’t keep the skin looking healthy. In the long run, it contributes to the number of toxins you have to excrete and if it doesn’t get removed from your body right away, it finds its way to your face causing acne.
- Do not rub your eyes
Rubbing the eyes ruins the membranes of your eyes and it also causes eye bags. Aside from having late nights awake, rubbing the eyes can make those eye bags stand out. On the other hand, if you’re removing makeup, use cotton or a soft cloth to remove the products on your face. Never ever scrub your eyes or any part of your body for that matter too hard.
