Moms: 5 Easy Ways to Look Younger, More Radiant
Being a mom is a major responsibility, and it’s easy to neglect your own personal care. The good news is, maintaining young-looking skin has never been simpler, and with just a few simple steps, you can look great no matter what motherhood demands of you. Here are some tips to get you started:
Take Heliocare®: Supplements for your skin
Heliocare® contains special anti-oxidants specifically for your skin’s health, so your skin’s natural ability to fight the effects of sun damage and aging are strengthened. Taken just once a day, you can enjoy healthier-looking skin while minimizing the damage done by UV rays. Just remember: Heliocare® is a supplement, not a sunscreen substitute.
Wear sunscreen – every day
And speaking of sunscreen, to provide the broadest protection for your skin, you should be wearing sunscreen every day, no matter what. Choose a tinted product to provide a healthy glow, even in winter. And be sure to include the neck, hands and backs of your ears, especially if you wear your hair up. Reapply throughout the day, or at least after working out.
Add retinol to your regimen
Retinol is one of the most potent anti-oxidants, ready to do battle against those early signs of aging including sun damage and promote the growth of collagen, a building block of healthy, radiant skin. Dr. Sadick can provide you with a prescription-strength formulation, but you can also find milder versions at your local drugstore.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize
Your skin is exposed to drying air all day and all night. Be sure to moisturize throughout the day, and especially after your shower and before bed, to keep skin as healthy, hydrated and supple as possible. Don’t forget hands and feet, too.
Don’t underestimate the winter sun
It’s easy to think your skin isn’t at risk for sun damage in the winter; after all, most of us associate sun damage with the heat of the hot summer sun. But it’s not the heat that’s doing the most damage; sun-related damage, including premature aging, occurs as a result of the sun’s UV radiation, and that’s still pouring down, even when the weather is cold. Wearing a hat and sunglasses and minimizing midday exposure are just as important now as they are in the summer.
Healthy skin doesn’t have to be a chore. To make sure your skin stays youthful and healthy, have your skin evaluated regularly to ensure your care regimen is all it should be. Start by scheduling an appointment with Sadick Dermatology today.
