What does it mean to have healthy skin? What does healthy skin look like? With the proper nutrition and skin hygiene, anyone can have the best skin at any age!

Healthy teenage skin:

Acne (acne vulgaris) is the most common type of acne that affects about 90% of teenagers as well as a small percentage of adults.  Lesions often flare up and may cause disfigurement and permanent scarring.  There are many treatments out there that can help with reducing flare ups.  

Cleanse the skin:

Wet, massage the cleanser (preferably a mild cleanser that will not strip the natural oils) and rinse off thoroughly.  Pat dry.

Moisturize the skin:

Apply an oil-free moisturizer, such as Dormer211 Spécialité Oil Free Fluid Moisturizer for acne-prone oily or combination skin.

Treat the skin:

Some topical treatments may include adapalene, benzoyl peroxide, topical tretinoin, erythromycin or salicylic acid. The best course of action is to consult a dermatologist to see what the right treatment is for you.

Healthy aging skin: 

While many parts of our bodies start to sag and wrinkle when we age, our face is no exception.  Many of us try to find the “miracle” cream that will reverse time, but in reality, the best defence against time is using common sense.  It’s important to stay away from elements that harm the skin and embrace those that feed and nourish the skin, inside and out.

Sun damage and premature skin aging:

Over time, excessive sun exposure will appear as wrinkles, sagging skin, freckles and uneven pigmentation.  The best way to prevent further damage is to limit exposure to UV rays.  Wearing a daily sunscreen such as Dormer211 SPF30 Daily Protective Skin Moisturizer will help reduce environmental skin damage that causes premature aging.

Dormer 211 SPF30 & SPF 15  Daily Protective Skin Moisturizers, contain Vitamin E, Tocopheryl Acetate, which enhances the efficacy of the active sunscreen ingredients by reducing the formation of free radicals from your exposure to UV rays, while promoting the skin's healing process to diminish signs of aging.  Tocopheryl Acetate, a form of Vitamin E, also  strengthens the skin's barrier function, protects the skin barrier's lipid balance, and reduces transepidermal water loss.  Use of either on a daily basis all year round will help you maintain healthy skin and reduce your risk of aging skin prematurely.

Exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet:

Of course, this is no secret.  The benefits of exercise in regards to anti-ageing are endless.  From creating “feel-good” hormones called endorphins, to building muscle mass, it poses almost no health risk as we age.  Exercise is also great for the skin because it increases the blood flow to the cells.  Consequently, the blood flow carries away the waste products from the cells. This process, therefore, nourishes and cleanses the skin creating a young, rosy glow from within.

A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean protein, whole grains and low in sugar is highly beneficial as they contain antioxidants which are shown to reverse the signs of aging.

Regular skin care routines and a daily regimen of protection and moisturizing will deliver long term personal benefits. Dormer 211 Moisturizers are here to assist you.
