Skin-care tips for the busy

Everyone wants beautiful, glowing, healthy skin. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to attain.
Luckily, thanks to these tips from top dermatologists, it doesn’t have to be.
Take care of your skin in your free time. It can be hard to find time to devote to your skin. Instead of trying to carve time out of your busy schedule, multitask. Skin-care products like masks and moisturizing hydration serums can be applied while you’re stuck in traffic or working on the computer.
Give yourself a facial massage. Not only are facial massages relaxing, they help fight wrinkles as well. Simply apply pressure to areas you tend to hold tension. These areas are prone to forming wrinkles. Common areas are the forehead, temples, inner eyebrows, and the outside of the nostrils.
Hydrate from the inside and outside. While its true that water will hydrate your skin from the inside out, you also need to moisturize from the outside in. creams, serums, and deep moisturizers will hydrate the superficial layers of the skin.
Shower in luke-warm water. Hot water can be too much for the face. Try luke-warm water instead.
Wear all the sunscreen. Sunscreen not only prevent from sunburns, it protects against sun damage like dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and even wrinkles. Don’t forget to apply to the neck, chest, and hands as well. They’re exposed to the sun just as often as your face.
Use hydrocortisone to counter-act swelling. If you’ve got a big event coming up and are plagued by swelling, you can use hydrocortisone cream to reduce the swelling. Just be sure not to make a habit out of it.
Utilize light acid peels at home. Acid peels are now available as wipes, moisturizers, and lip polishes. They’ll help you freshen up in a pinch.
Never rub your eyes. Treat your eyes with love and care. Be gentle with them!
Use your lips as a moisture guide for your face. If your lips are dry, chances are your face is too. As soon as you feel your lips getting chapped, apply a hydrating cream to your face.
Stock up on the fatty-acids. Starchy carbs like bread and rice can wreak havoc on your skin. Opt instead for foods like avocado and salmon which are rich in omega-3’s and fatty acids.
