Looking after your skin

Like most other things, what you put in will show on the outside. What you eat and drink contributes greatly to the health of your skin.

Looking youthful and wrinkle-free is possible with proper attention.

• A nutritious diet is very important, particularly eating 'skin friendly' foods such as fruits and vegetables.


• Drink plenty of water, and reduce caffeine and alcohol intake to help your skin maintain its glow.

• Regular exercise boosts blood circulation and triggers the renewal of skin cells.

• Maintain healthy and adequate sleep patterns and minimize stress. Puffiness and sagging skin under the eyes are easy indicators of sleep deprivation. Sleep is the only time the skin can rest and repair itself. When you lack adequate sleep, it makes wrinkles worse.

Looking After Your Skin From The Outside

• Use sunscreen. Sun protection is the most important element of external skin care. Excessive sunlight can damage the epidermis and create wrinkles.

• Dry skin is more likely to show up fine lines. A moisturizer will help increase the skin's surface elasticity. Use moisturizers that are pleasing to the skin.

• Seek shade. Avoid the sun between 10am and 2pm, when the sun's rays are strongest.

• Wear protective clothing. Cover your skin with tightly woven long-sleeved shirts, long pants and wide-brimmed hats.
