Did you know that sunscreen and sunblock expire?
Get your skin ready for spring by checking the expiration date stamped on your sunscreens.
If it’s expired, get a new bottle.
This goes for moisturizers and lip balms with built-in SPF protection, too.

winter long, your skin has been dry and rough, so it’s time to slough
away all that dead skin to reveal the soft, glowing skin underneath.

for spring by throwing away old make-up, and also by updating your
collection with lighter, brighter spring colors!
Invest in a good bronzer or highlighter to give you a sun-kissed #look without the UV damage, and buy a pretty new pink lip gloss, too!
5. Switch Moisturizer
No that winter’s over, you won’t need such a heavy moisturizer to combat the dry, cold air. It’s
time to switch to a lighter moisturizer, like Ayur Medic's Enhancement Cream. It’s time to put your best #face forward! 6.

Your face deserves the best!
After all your skin is one
of the largest body organs, thus the importance of keeping up with your
skin regimen by using good products. Your skin serves as a protective
barrier between your insides and the rest of the world, helps regulate
body temperature and acts as a filter. Skin exists in a constant state
of growth, with old cells dying as new cells are forming. It's affected
by every aspect of your life, from what you eat to where you live.
Healthy skin helps to fight signs of aging, heals much faster and
stave's off potential disease better than unhealthy skin.
skin care is vital if you're concerned about your physical appearance.
Unhealthy skin tends to appear sallow and dull, whereas healthy skin
appears full and vibrant. Wrinkles develop with more ease and deeper if
your skin is dehydrated and unhealthy, and it can result in uneven
patches that have a mottled color. When skin is unhealthy it loses
elasticity, which can make it sag and appear thin.
skin care is not only about looking good, it's about staying healthy.
Poor skin care habits can lead to rashes, sores, acne and wrinkles.
Unhealthy skin is more susceptible to disease, infection and is more
likely to scar after an injury. Proper care is particularly important
for people who experience skin issues, such as psoriasis, or have skin
Keeping Skin Healthy
is constantly growing and changing, so you have to remain vigilant in
caring for it. Keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water
throughout the day, and maintain a balanced diet to provide the vitamins
and minerals your skin needs. Stick with fresh fruits and vegetables,
whole grains and lean protein for the best results. Always make sure to
use sunblock if you're going to spend time outside, even during the fall
and winter seasons.
Proper Skin Care
skin care means cleansing it properly. Skin needs moisture to survive,
so avoid using hot water when you wash your face, as the heat sucks
moisture from your skin. Try using warm or cool water instead. Also,
avoid harsh or chemical-heavy soaps, as they strip moisture from your
skin while polluting it. Keep your skin moisturized by applying lotion
within a few minutes of bathing. If you have a problem with dry skin,
use an oil-based lotion on the problem area several times a day.
Skin Care and Pregnancy
skin care is important for health and appearance during a pregnancy.
Unhealthy skin can cause an unhealthy body, which in turn can cause an
unhealthy baby. Healthy skin is more pliable and will minimize the
stretch marks that typically occur in the later stages of pregnancy.

7 Steps To Younger-Looking Skin
these simple steps to erase signs of aging and boost your overall skin
health. From what you eat to when you wash your face, small changes can
make a big difference.
If you apply just one topical anti-ager, make it this
Research shows that these vitamin-A derivatives speed cell turnover and collagen growth to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and fade brown spots. Prescription-strength retinoids such as Renova provide the fastest results—you'll start to see changes in about a month. To help skin acclimate to any redness and peeling, apply just a pea-size drop to your face every third night, building up to nightly usage. Milder OTC versions (look for retinol) are gentler, although it can take up to 3 months to see noticeable results.
5. Update your routine
They make you smart, they make you beautiful—what's not to like?
These "good fats" in foods such as salmon, flaxseed, and almonds boost hydration, which keeps skin supple and firm. The same isn't true of the saturated fat in dairy products and meats, which increase free-radical damage that makes skin more susceptible to aging. Limit saturated fat intake to about 17 g daily.
7. Exercise regularly
