When I was in college, my dermatologist discovered the first of what would end up being 4 “Dysplastic Nevi” cells, which put you at a higher risk for cancer. Right that moment I got my act together and started taking better care of my skin. When it suddenly hit me that we only get this one chance in life at taking care of our skin, I started research on all the best ways to care for it. Not ONLY to maintain a nice youthful glow, but honestly because our skin is incredibly important for the overall health and wellness of our bodies. Here are some products that you can use to help take care of yourself and keep yourself healthy and not end up with these embarrassing scars all over your body that you got just from not taking care of your skin better.
Perhaps scars don’t matter to you, but for me it’s just a reminder every time someone asks me about them of the pain I went through and the embarrassment I feel at not taking better care of myself.
- Drink water
- Once a week do a scrub to rid your body of dead skin
- Wear sun protection daily, even in the winter
- See a dermatologist (annually)
Sunscreens (healthier and some all natural)
Neutrogena Sport Face
Australian Gold Sun Screen with Bronzer
Continuous Sport Spray Sunscreen
Honest Beauty Gel Cleanser
Honest Beauty Oil Serum
Honest Beauty Moisturizer
Kiehl’s Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil
Elf Eye Cream
The important part here is TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. Use products that are healthy and more natural, especially on your face. Care more about keeping your skin, the only barrier our body really has from outside “invasion”, than you do about laying in the sun all day to be tan or not caring what sun damage can do to you in years to come.
Until next week friends.
