Stay Out of the Sun
The Rio Grande Valley’s warm climate makes it a tropical paradise, but the bright sunshine can also be detrimental to your skin. Summer will be here before you know it and it’s important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Be sure to apply a generous amount of sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. Stay in the shade or use the sunny weather as an excuse to showcase a new accessory and invest in a beautiful wide-brimmed hat or flowy outerwear to match your swimsuit.
These days, the effects of smoking are no secret as cigarettes are extremely harmful to your health. Not only does smoking increase the risk of lung cancer, when it comes to your skin, it is your worst enemy. Some of the effects of long-term smoking include:
- Decreasing the oxygen and nutrients from your skin
- Damaging collagen and elastin, which gives your skin strength and elasticity
- Contributing to wrinkles
- Making skin more susceptible to skin spots
- Staining fingers
- Creating a greater risk of psoriasis
Remember to Moisturize
Your skin can suffer from dryness as a result of cold weather, dry weather pollution or stress. And skin dehydration is a major factor in the formation of fine lines. It’s important to moisturize accordingly in order to keep your skin hydrated to increase collagen. This will prevent the emergence of wrinkles and sagging skin.
