Look after your skin every day including holidays

Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body, and like any other organ, it needs to be properly nourished to stay healthy.  However, when you go on holiday or if you are just travelling in general, it is not always easy to maintain your skin care regime but our simple tips below will help to keep your skin in tip top condition.

Always apply a good sunscreen before leaving home

Obagi Sun ShieldToo much sun can cause damage to the skin, increase premature visible signs of aging and cause more serious effects such as skin cancer.

It only takes a minute to apply a suncreen such as the Obagi Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum in the morning, and it may just save you from the future consequences of too much sun exposure.  It is important to apply it everyday, not just on sunny days.

During the day drink lots of water

Drinking lots of water during the day helps you stay hydrated can help keep your skin looking its very best. People who do not drink enough water tend to have dry and wrinkled skin due to dehydration.

When out and about why not try carrying a bottle of water with you? It reminds you to keep yourself hydrated, and you will have water available to you wherever your day takes you.

Always remove the grime of the day with a good cleanser right before you go to sleep

During the day your skin build’s up with a day’s worth of dirt, pollution, and oil. It is therefore important, before you go to sleep, to take a few minutes to remove any makeup and wash your skin with a cleanser. We recommend the Obagi360 ™ Exfoliating Cleanser. You will then give your pores a chance to relax while you sleep and this will ensure you don’t get a build of grime.

Everyone has a busy lifestyle but it doesn’t have to show on your skin.
