Healthy Skin Care Tips

May 25th, 2011

Caring for your skin helps you maintain a positive self-image. For example, you want to feel confident in the workplace and in your relationship with your romantic partner. Your everyday choices, including usage of skin care products, affect the condition of your skin. This article offers four tips for protecting your skin’s health:

* Read the product label for all skin care products. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration requires cosmetics companies to label products such as skin cream according to federal guidelines. If a company makes a therapeutic claim made on a product label, the product must also meet all federal labeling requirements for a drug. Before you buy a skin cream, especially an imported cream or a cream purchased online, don’t fall for labels that claim a cream is “FDA-approved.” The FDA does not review product labels before manufacturers send their products to the market for sale.

* Eat fruits and vegetables fresh from the farm or the supermarket. Fruits and vegetables are rich in protein, carbohydrates, anti-oxidants, minerals, and cancer-preventing ingredients. For example, cucumbers aren’t just useful for drying swollen eyes. Cucumbers contain silica—which enhances your natural complexion—and two acids—ascorbic acid and caffeic acid—which prevent the human body from retaining water.

* Manage your stress. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, your stress level can cause skin conditions like psoriasis and rosacea to get worse, acne lesions to become more inflamed and enduring, hair loss, brittle and ridging nails, hives, and extra perspiration.

* Conduct regular inspections of your body to locate potential skin cancers. You can even conduct the inspection with the help of a friend or loved one at least once a year, such as every Valentine’s Day.
