Every woman and man desire to have healthy and younger-looking skin. But in our fast-paced lifestyle, taking care of ourselves can be tough. It is important to take proper care of what we eat and drink, and the amount of stress we endure at work or home; or else, it becomes really difficult to reverse the effects of time.
Although there are many skin care products and anti-aging creams that are recommended by dermatologists, if we don't take care of ourselves, non of these items will ever work.

Guidelines to Follow

Do ...

• wear protective clothing whenever you go outside; stick to long-sleeved shirts and long pants.

Don't ...

Tips for Women

After we hit puberty, it becomes very important to take good care of our skin. By starting early in life and caring for small details, we can definitely slow down the aging process and attain soft, glowing skin.
‣ The first thing you need to do is cleanse your skin on a regular basis.
‣ Wash your face at least twice a day with cold water to clean dirt, oil, and pollution off of it.
‣ Your skin needs to breathe as well. Washing your face regularly can also help decrease any noticeable blemishes.
‣ Choose a cleanser that is designed specifically for your skin type. To help you purchase the right products, if you have oily skin, then go for any oil-free products. On the other hand, if you have sensitive skin, purchase cleanser which is hypoallergenic.

Tips for Men

Majority of men follow a typical regime―a bar of soap and a towel. But that's not good enough. Even men suffer from skin problems like getting fine lines, blemishes, wrinkles, and what not. So, the answer to this would be to start as early in life as possible and stick to the routine.
There are many products in the market that are specifically designed for men such as facial cleansers, exfoliators, face masks, acne products, and much more.
In order to ensure your skin stays supple, young, and hydrated without showing major signs of aging, it is imperative that you follow the guidelines mentioned here. Taking proper care of yourself, from inside and out, is a must.
