Your skin is your body armor. It gives protection to everything inside your body from the outside surroundings. What if we had no skin? We would just be a stack of bones, muscles, and organs. The skin is the biggest organ in our body, and it is the most exposed. The area of the skin that are not covered by our outfits get even more exposed, and this exposure affects the skin’s quality.
We are deemed to take measures to protect our skin from harsh exposure such as the sun and strong wind which makes the skin dry. Dry skin makes people look older than they are.
Here are some ways on how to improve the quality of your skin:
Use of moisturizers
A good skin is a skin that is hydrated. Use of effective moisturizers helps improve the quality of the skin. A good moisturizer contains antioxidants, vitamin E and CoQ10 which boost the elastin and collagen levels in the skin. When we use moisturizers daily, our skin gets hydrated and this improves our skin health and texture.
We often shed off our skin; actually, we get rid of the dead skin cells each minute. The moment we get rid of these dead cells, our body generates new ones. The process of regenerating helps us to stay fit as well as enabling us to improve our skin quality. Exfoliating helps in speeding up the procedure of shedding dead skin cells.
Exfoliation can happen in various ways such as manual exfoliation where you use exfoliating scrubs to wash your skin. Another way is chemical peeling where chemical reactions dissolve the dead skin cells. Exfoliation method is an easy way of improving your skin.
Cosmetic procedures have been used for several years to improve the quality of the skin, but as technology advances getting rid of old skin is easy. Botox is a common cosmetic procedure carried out to smoothen the skin. When used for cosmetic purposes, it helps in diminishing the appearance of wrinkles to many people.
Laser skin resurfacing procedure
Laser procedure works just like exfoliation except it works much better. Skin specialists use particular lasers to remove skin layers that are flaw thus allowing deeper layers of the skin to grow on the outer side. Laser skin resurfacing can remove both dead and living skin to get rid of any imperfection.
This process involves spraying the face with small crystals to get rid of the outer layer of the skin. It gives space to a healthier and newer layer of skin to take its place.
Other ways include:
- establishing a skin care routine
- going soap free
- staying free from acne
