There are a few steps every person should take to ensure optimal skin health, with protecting your skin from the sun being the most important. Sunscreen and protective clothing can be helpful, but avoiding direct and excessive sunlight, particularly between 10 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon, is the only complete way to properly shield your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. Giving up cigarettes is also essential as smoking can damage the blood vessels in the outer layers of skin, resulting in a wrinkled, withered look. Finally, individuals must treat their skin in a personalized manner. Skincare products designed for oily skin will not have the same effect on dry skin, and vice versa. Researching products and purchasing the right type is a must for proper skin health.
