Check out these 5 skin care secrets from dermatologists!
No matter how tempting it may be, try to never rub your eyes. The skin around the eyes is the thinnest and frequent rubbing can exacerbate wrinkles and bags under the eyes. You even need to be careful when applying eye cream. Pat it on gently with your ring finger, since it’s the weakest and will better ensure you don’t press too hard.
Try to exercise most days of the week. Even if it’s just for 15 minutes. Exercise boosts circulation and improves your skin tone. And let’s be honest…it also lengthens your life! That, alone, should be ample motivation!
Try to sleep on your back. If that’s not possible use a silk pillow to minimize wrinkles and avoid stripping your skin of natural oils.
Yes, we preach this all the time so maybe it’s not much of a secret, but it’s important to wear broad spectrum UVA/UVB screen EVERY DAY (not just when you’re heading to the beach) in order to protect yourself against long term wear and tear. And don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your ears and your neck (including the back of your neck).
If you’re going to get any kind of filler or Botox, make sure that you avoid alcohol, vitamin E and fish oil for a few days before your treatment in order to decrease your risk of bruising.
