The way your skin looks and feels can tell a lot about your diet, lifestyle, and well-being. This only makes it important to pay attention to the condition of your skin (particularly on the face) to find out if it needs SOS or extra care.
Here are some signs that your skin can benefit from a little TLC:
It is Dry and Flaky
If your skin feels dry and itchy almost any time of the year, you have to do something and find the culprit. If you haven’t tried anything new, it might be due to the extreme heat or cold. Weird conditions and sensations may also be due to the use of harsh soap and taking extremely long baths, which strip the natural oil of your skin. Check your habits and products to make sure they are not contributing to your skin issues.
You Have Premature Wrinkles
While everyone is going to have wrinkles and fine lines someday, exhibiting premature signs of aging means you have to modify your lifestyle. You should drink enough water, quit smoking, or avoid too much sun exposure. You can also benefit from investing in essential skin care products like cleanser, serums, moisturizers, and eye cream.
Your Skin’s Dull and Not Smooth To Touch
Dull complexion can be due to lack of sleep or poor diet. Your skin is also probably congested if you notice small bumps, acne, and black/white. You can benefit from exfoliation to remove what’s clogging your pores. You should also moisturize and start including healthy foods in your diet.
It Is Inconsistent In Color
Sunspots, red patches, and dark circle under the eyes could be due to your habits and lifestyle. Extensive sun exposure or tanning can make your skin look raw or uneven because of sunspots and skin pigmentation. Lack of sleep and too much stress can make those dark circles baggy and your eyes puffy. Again, lifestyle and diet medication is beneficial.
Everyone deserves to have beautiful skin. If your skin is not in its best condition, it is time to spend more time (or money) in taking care of it. Don’t be afraid to invest in quality skin care products and treatments; your skin will thank you later.
