Proper skincare makes all the difference when it comes to your largest organ. Your skin will be with you from birth to the end of your life. It makes good sense to take care of it, so it can do what it was designed to do; keep infection out of your body and water and nutrients in. Having it look good while it does that is a bonus most people want.

Wash Your Face Twice Daily

You should wash your face with a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water, in the morning and at night before bed. Your cleanser should be matched to your skin type. Dry skin needs different things than oily skin. Look for a cleanser without a lot of ingredients and especially fragrance, which is how many bad ingredients are hidden in cleansers.

ExfoliateTwice a Week

When you exfoliate, you clear away the dead skin cells from the outer layer of your skin. Use a product appropriate for the type of skin you have. It needs to be gentle enough to use twice a week but strong enough to do the job. Dr.Z recommends the use of glycolic or salicylic acid products for skincare in Baton Rouge, LA. and Prairieville, LA.

Use a Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C is good for your skin and applying it topically in the morning to a dry face will allow it to soak in and nourish your skin.

Wear Sunscreen

The most important thing you can do for your skin is to protect it from the sun. You need an SPF of at least 30 anytime you are going to be outdoors, and you need to renew it every 2 hours. Wearing protective clothing and a wide-brimmed hat adds another layer of protection.  

Moisturize your skin

Moisturizer works the best when it is used right after taking a shower or after washing your face. You want to trap the moisture and have it absorbed by your dry skin. Choose an ointment or a cream to maximize the results you achieve.
