How can I keep my skin healthy?

I'm getting up there in age, and it's starting to show in my face. Is there any way I can reverse the effects of age on my face/skin?

The best way to good health is from the inside out. So drink plenty of water and stay on a good, balanced diet.

Sun screen/staying out of the sun helps a lot. Remember to cover your ears and neck since they all get a lot of sun exposure. Besides that, drinking water and exercise. It seems like the people who are the most fit also seem to look younger.

Exfoliate! Scrubing dead skin cells from your face leaves healthy, soft, glowing skin underneath. Buy a loofah: http://www.google.com/#hl=en&sugexp=les%3B&gs_rn=4&gs_ri=psy-ab&pq=exfoliate&cp=10&gs_id=28&xhr=t&q=face+loofah&es_nrs=true&pf=p&rlz=1R2DKUS_en&biw=1234&bih=602&sclient=psy-ab&oq=face+loofa&gs_l=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&bvm=bv.42768644,d.cGE&fp=b3359863b85606b5
which helps unclog pores and scrub off dead skin. Be sure to moisturize often too though, or your skin could become too dry and flaky.
Good luck :)

Lemon and honey. Cut the lemon in half put 1 or 2 drops of honey on the lemon and rub on your face. The lemon juice is great for your face and the honey moisturizes. Lemon juice will clear up your face also. If you don't want to put honey on your face use a good lotion.

avoid sun..use spf all the time..and wash your face with a cleanser that dosen't foam. Anything that suds' up will strip your skin..end with a good moisturizer

Anyone you would like to have a clean and smooth skin, so it will add to your appearance. Every woman wants to have white skin naturally without the need to pay that much. Has a natural white skin no longer a serious problem.

Many ways you can take to whiten your skin. If you want to quickly get results, you can go to beauty salons. But this will require a considerable cost. But you can also use a natural way and use the traditional way or the herbal way. (http://aboutcosmeticsurgery.net/skin-care/how-to-make-skin-white-naturally/)

Believe it or not, my Uncle uses Olive oil before bed, scrubs it off in the shower the next morning, and uses some kind of sugar scrub. He gets plenty of sleep, exercise, water, and fuits/vegetables, which his doctor says helps his skin immensely. He has psoriasis, by the way. He only does these few things and he has skin that beats mine. I am so jealous. Lol

what kind of sugar scrub? what is sugar scrub too? sorry just curious :)
Report as
Sugar scrubs are mixtures of different herbs, oils, and proteins mixed with ORGANIC that are healthy for your skin. You scrub your body down until it's all worn down and rinse. I am not sure what kind of sugar scrub he uses, but I use Eucalyptus and lemon. :)

Jason's skin cream is the best, especially with a lot of Vit. E, or you could try Cocoa Butter creams like Palmer's and maybe add some Vit. E to them. Vit. E promotes blood circulation to the skin.

That stuff killed my skin, made it really flaky. Now I only use organic skin scrubs & other stuff. My skin is fine now, no more Jason's-induced flaking.

I can't not shower every day. It's not the dirty aspect of it, it's just that my hair is thin enough to get greasy and nappy within a few hours of washing it. But when in the shower, I don't use body wash every day, just wash my feet, hair, and underarms. But I can't take a shower every other day because my hair gets so greasy in such a short amount of time. The only time I shower twice a day, though, is if I am going to a public function later in the evening on a school day.
