It’s that time of the year when people start writing their new year’s resolutions. It’s important to add things like exercising more and getting more sleep to your resolutions list, but what about your skin? It’s also important to take better care of your skin as each year passes. Here are four things you want to include for your 2021 resolutions:
- Take better care of your biome – Your body is home to trillions of microorganisms that help regulate a lot of functions like digestion and pH balance. Eating more fiber and probiotics, healthy carbohydrates like full grains, and lean meats from fish and chicken can make a huge difference in not just your gut health but also your skin’s health. Healthy good bacteria means they will be able to fulfill their functions a lot better. Learn more about how your body’s biome protects your skin’s health by reading our blog post.
- Change your diet to help prevent acne breakouts – Speaking of food, you should consider altering your diet if you are having acne breakouts regularly. Adult acne can be caused by an imbalance diet that has foods high in fat, sugar or dairy. These foods cause a spike in your body’s inflammatory response, making you more prone to pimples and acne breakouts. Read how your diet affects your acne here.
- Look into using injectable fillers – As you grow older, your skin loses its volume and suppleness, leaving you with dull complexion and visible wrinkles and fine lines. You can get hyaluronic acid-based filler injections to reduce the signs of aging. Hylauronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found on your skin, therefore it is safe and have been proven to show amazing results. Read what fillers can do for you.
- Use more sunscreen – Apply sunscreen not just during sunny days, but every day regardless of the weather. The sun’s harmful UV rays can still penetrate the clouds and WILL damage your skin. Apply a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher just before you step outside of your house, and make sure to re-apply every couple of hours. Make sure you select a sunscreen with both UVA AND UVB protection.
