Are You Keeping a Good Skincare Routine?

If you want to keep your skin young and healthy-looking, you need to maintain a good skincare routine. Dr. Mark Quarterman and Dr. Luke H. O'Steen are dermatologists at Anderson Skin and Cancer Clinic located in Anderson, Abbeville, and Seneca, SC. They can help you with your skincare problems.

Top Tips For Caring For your Skin

Rehydrate: Drinking enough water is vital for helping your liver and kidneys flush toxins from your body. Ideally, you should drink 6-8 glasses of water each day. Avoid substituting your glasses of water with sugar and additive-laden carbonated beverages.

Exfoliate: Using skin exfoliants will help to prevent a buildup of dead skin cells, which can cause blocked pores and lead to irritating skin conditions. You can use either a body scrub in the shower or a soft-bristled brush to slough off dead skin.

Exercise: Physical activity boosts your metabolism and will help release toxins from your body. It doesn’t matter whether you spend an hour at the gym, run for five miles or walk for twenty minutes each day, you will soon feel the benefits.

Cleanse: Using a skin-cleansing mask, such as bentonite clay will help draw the impurities from your skin. It will cleanse your pores, soften your skin and leave you with a healthy glow.

Visit your dermatologist: Anderson residents who have ongoing skin issues such as psoriasis or eczema benefit from regular visits to their dermatologists.

Relax: Excessive stress very quickly has a negative effect on your body that will soon show up in the form of dry and pale skin, dark circles, and puffy skin around the eyes.

Eat well: A balanced diet is essential for healthy skin. Eliminate refined sugars, saturated fats, and processed foods. Eat plenty of organic fruit and vegetables every day.
