  1. 1. Source: www.FatLossProducts.org/Articles/Article/1/53www.FatLossProducts.org3 Easy Tips to Keep Your Skin HealthyThere are plenty of articles out there about what to do to make your skin look young again.But what if you still have it? How do young women keep their skin looking the way it is nowwell into the future? The following five easy tips can help you keep your youthful glow.1. Use Sunscreen, Never Tan. Its hard for young women to resist the warm glow that a fewhours of tanning can bring. But the damage that it does beneath the surface accumulatesover time--ultimately leaving the skin dull and thin. By the time premature aging becomesevident, significant amounts of damage has taken place below the surface. Rather than aweek of beauty, think of long-term beauty. If you really want to give your skin an added glow,try shimmering lotions and makeups. Or, for a darker look, try artificial tanners (but becareful, they can sometimes leave you looking more orange than tan). Dont forget that youcan experience the damaging effects of the sun even if you arent deliberately trying to tan.Make applying sunscreen part of your daily routine. Purchasing moisturizers with sunscreenalready in them can help. Remember, only 15 minutes of sun exposure each day providesyou with the vitamin D you need to stay healthy.2. Eat the Right Foods. Youve always heard the phrase "You are what you eat" and that isexactly right when talking about your skin! What you eat is not just relevant to your weight. Italso affects the health of your skin. Clinical studies have shown that eating diets rich in fattyacids and antioxidants can help skin retain its youthful appearance. Foods good for your skininclude fish, vegetables, whole grains and fruits including all kinds of berries. Antioxidants inthe diet may help reduce the appearance of age spots. Fatty acids are one of thecomponents of metabolic processes within the body that are also integral to the maintenanceof healthy skin. Making these foods a part of your daily diet can benefit you for years tocome.3. Clean and Moisturize! Dont neglect your skin. For normal skin, a gentle daily cleanser isall you need. Using a washcloth needlessly pulls and tears at the skin. Cleanse your skin withyour fingers using gentle, circular motions, paying particular attention not to stretch thedelicate eye area. Moisturizing the skin is also important to protect it from the effects of theelements including wind, pollution, and sun (if it is a sunscreen moisturizure). Not only does itprotect the skin from the outside, but also helps it to retain its natural moisture from theinside. Keep in mind that spending a lot of money is not necessary. If your skin is oily or youhave a problem with acne, use products designed specifically for your skin type. You maywant to consult a dermatologist to seek prescription treatments. Never attempt to pop yourpimples. This will increase the size of your pores and possibly cause scaring.Essentially, if your skin is young, value it! Taking simple precautionary steps can help keep itthat way. Think of the benefits of having healthy skin in the future. Use sunscreen, eathealthy, and following a daily skin regimine. You dont need alot of money to keep your skinhealthy. All it takes is common sense and good lifestyles choices.Amie Gerlowski writes about skin care topics such as skin doctors and tanning.
