TOP 5 Ways of Skin Care by Farhat Daud


⦁ Sun Protection is Essential

Protecting your skin from the sun is one of the most important ways to care for it. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15. Apply sunscreen freely and reapply every two hours – or more frequently if you’re swimming or sweating.

You can also protect your skin from the sun by wearing tightly woven long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and wide-brimmed hats to protect your skin. Consider laundry additives, which add an extra layer of ultraviolet protection to clothing for a limited number of washings, or special sun-protective clothing.

⦁ Quit Smoking

Smoking directly affects your skin by contributing to wrinkles. It constricts the tiny blood vessels in the skin’s outermost layers, reducing blood flow and making the skin paler. This also depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients, both of which are essential for skin health.

Smoking also harms collagen and elastin, the fibres that give your skin strength and elasticity. Furthermore, smoking-related repetitive facial expressions, such as pursing your lips when inhaling and squinting your eyes to keep smoke out, can contribute to wrinkles.

Smoking increases your risk of squamous cell skin cancer. If you smoke, the best way to protect your skin is to quit. Ask your doctor for tips or treatments to help you stop smoking.

⦁ Healthy Diet

A healthy diet can help you in looking and feeling your best. Consume a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. Although the link between diet and acne is unclear, some research suggests that a diet high in fish oil or fish oil supplements and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates may promote younger-looking skin. Keeping your skin hydrated is made easier by drinking plenty of water, it has its own benefits.

Dry skin is one of the most common skin problems that both men and women face. In most cases, poor diet is the primary contributor to this problem. Following a healthy diet includes eating enough healthy fats, which help to keep your skin moisturised and supple. This will ensure that your skin is naturally moisturised from the inside out.

Healthy fats are beneficial to your entire body because they allow the body to absorb and use other nutrients properly. Healthy fats can be found in a variety of foods, including wild fish, avocados, seeds, nuts, and olive oil.

⦁ Sleep Cycle

A 2017 study found that two days of sleep restriction negatively affected participant’s perceived attractiveness, health, sleepiness, and trustworthiness.

As a result, what appears to be a one-time problem may turn out to be a long-term one.

To begin with, you should understand that sleep is the time when your body repairs itself. This applies to your epidermis just as much as it does to your brain or muscles. During sleep, your skin’s blood flow increases, and the organ rebuilds collagen and repairs UV-induced damage, resulting in fewer wrinkles and age spots.

Second, sleep is a time when your face is inevitably in contact with the elements directly around it for an extended period of time, especially if you get the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep per night.

⦁ Stress Management

Uncontrolled stress can cause your skin to become more sensitive, resulting in acne breakouts and other skin problems. Take steps to manage your stress to promote healthy skin – and a healthy state of mind. Get enough sleep, set reasonable boundaries, pare down your to-do list, and make time for the things you enjoy. The outcomes may be more dramatic than you expect.

Effective stress management assists you in breaking the grip that stress has on your life, allowing you to be happier, healthier, and more productive. The ultimate goal is to live a balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun – as well as the resilience to cope under pressure and face challenges head on. However, stress management is not a one-size-fits-all solution. That is why it is critical to experiment and discover what works best for you.

The tips above are topics brushed upon and require consistency. If you experience that these might not help for the betterment of your skin or that your topics require more insight in the given topics, book an appointment and consult Dr. Farhat Daud for your healthcare and wellness.
