Are you overwhelmed about the constant barrage of media advice on health, fitness, diet and wellness? There seems to be a new article everyday about what not to eat, the best exercises and scary new diseases. It’s enough to make you turn off your laptop and head to the couch.  Wellness does not have to be complicated. We’ve all known the basics for years. Be mindful of not eating processed foods and large quantities and get up and move for at least thirty minutes a day. However, one of the least talked about and written about healthcare issues is care of our skin. The skin is the largest organ in our body. Taking care of it isn’t complicated. Follow these recommendations from Dermatologists and you’ll soon developed a simple skin care regimen.

The skin is largely composed of water and as such, needs constant hydration. Three to four glasses of water per day is the amount of hydration needed to keep the skin subtle and hydrated. Coffee and alcoholic beverages actually dehydrate the skin. Consume these in limited quantities. Avoid adding sugary flavoring packets to water; opt instead for slices of lemons or oranges. Consider the consumption of water the first process for hydrating your skin. The second process is continuous moisturizing. Many in-shower moisturizing products are on the market. Moisturizing in the shower when skin is wet and pores are open is optimal. Otherwise, apply copious amount of lotions to your skin in the morning and evening. Select a moisturizer specially designed for the sensitive skin around the eyes.

Finally, protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Take the advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and invest in a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses to protect your yes. Apply a high SFP sun screen each day. It’s just as important to protect your skin from the sun’s rays in the winter as in the summer. Finally, schedule an annual full body check with your dermatologist. They’ll be able to identify any issues with your skin before they become harmful.
