We’ve all been there. Skin issues seem to be a universal problem. Even though everyone goes through it, skin problems can cause a great deal of social anxiety and embarrassment. While you need to know that you are amazing and beautiful exactly as you are, there are ways to combat most common skin issues so that you can feel more comfortable with the skin you have.
The best way to treat wrinkles is to prevent them! Sun exposure is the surest way to age your skin prematurely, so lather on the sunscreen wherever you go outside. Also, don’t smoke! Smoking damages your skin and makes it more susceptible to wrinkles. Surprisingly, another enemy to your skin is sugar. Eating too much sugar leads to a process that breaks down the collagen in your skin, causing it to look older. Finally, prevent wrinkles from forming by sleeping on your back. Sleeping on your side causes compression wrinkles over time.
For those wrinkles that have already formed, there are many ways to treat them. Start by keeping your skin plump with proper hydration. Water is your best friend for many reasons, but smoother skin is one of them. Keep your face moisturized with a good moisturizer. Organic, cold-pressed coconut oil is an excellent, natural moisturizer. Next, you can try a high-quality over-the-counter wrinkle serum. Beyond these simple approaches, you can contact your dermatologist to see if they suggest dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, chemical peel, Botox, or even a face-lift.
First, it is important to know that acne scars are preventable. Treat acne right away with a topical acne treatment. Also, large and inflamed blemishes should be treated for inflammation. Finally, don’t pick, pop, squeeze, or poke your blemishes or the scabs that form, no matter how badly you want to!
When acne scars have formed, you can treat them to reduce visibility. Try a scar removal hydration cream first. If that doesn’t work, see a dermatologist. Laser treatment may get rid of acne scars when hydration doesn’t work.
Dandruff may seem like a hair condition, but it is actually a skin problem. Dandruff can be caused by an allergic reaction to a hair product, dry skin, or a fungal infection. Dandruff can be embarrassing, but it is easily treatable. Use a medicated dandruff shampoo a couple of times per week and exfoliate your scalp regularly with an exfoliation brush or glove.
You don’t have to live with embarrassing skin problems. There are treatments that can help. Talk to your dermatologist to learn how to overcome your skin issues.
