Some Real Tips for Helping Your Skin this New Year

We all typically make resolutions in the New Year to improve ourselves in some way, and that’s a good thing. But these resolutions often tackle big issues and tend to ignore the everyday things we can do to improve our appearance and the way we feel.

While we don’t want to discourage you from making big New Year’s resolution, Radiant Dermatology does want to encourage you to begin making small changes to your daily life that can have a larger affect on your well-being.

So here is our list of tiny resolutions to help you look and feel your best.

Drink More Water

We all know to do it, but sometimes we just forget. This year, go to the grocery store and buy yourself some bottled water or a refillable water bottle. Keep bottles in the office, and around the house, any place you’d be tempted to drink something sugary. Over a few weeks you’ll notice changes in your weight and skin.

Use Sunscreen Everyday

The best thing you can do to look young and keep your skin healthy is to apply sunscreen everyday. Not only does sunscreen protect you from cancer causing sun rays, but it prevents the development of unwanted wrinkles and brown spots.

Get Some Sleep

Doctors recommend that you get seven to eight hours of sleep per night, and that means maybe making a few lifestyle changes. Instead of watching another show on your DVR, turn off the lights a little early and give yourself some extra time to get quality sleep. Not only does it help you feel more awake, but it also helps reduce stress, which can have a direct affect on the appearance of your skin.

Talk to Your Doctor

One of the biggest things you can do is to finally speak up about what makes you feel unhealthy. We all feel nervous about sharing health information, but doctors are the people who specialize in making you feel your best, so don’t hold back.

Radiant Dermatology wishes you the very best in the New Year, and we are always here to help you with any concerns you might have. If you have questions about how to improve the look of your skin, call our office today to look and feel your best
