Sept 2018: Sue's 10 Top Tips

  1. Drink plenty of water to give your skin its best chance of staying hydrated & plumped with fewer fine lines & wrinkles.
  2. Use sunscreen SPF30 or more EVERY DAY to all visible areas, avoiding prolonged sun exposure: it will  give you wrinkles, burns & photo damage in later life e.g. sunspots and hyper pigmentation; & raise your risk of skin cancer.
  3. Moisturise after showers/baths to lock moisture in for all day hydration.
  4. Don't drink too much caffeine: it causes dehydration, toxin buildup and can cause skin outbreaks.
  5. Exfoliate using a light product only to avoid stripping the skin of its natural defences, causing irritation, redness, inflammation & skin outbreaks.
  6. Massage your daily skin cream in using gentle upward circular motions to increase circulation & result in a fresher looking face.
  7. NEVER wear make-up to bed- no matter how tired you are. It will block pores & predispose the skin to outbreaks......not to mention ruining the bedding.
  8. DON'T use toothpaste or harsh toners to fight blemishes: they strip the skin of moisture & send oil glands into overdrive worsening the problem.Try instead a zinc based product for faster healing.
  9. Protect your pout & use SPF & shea butter in place of medicated skin balms. That menthol tingle may be intoxicating but it won't protect your lips. NOTE: if you have had lip fillers it is ESSENTIAL that you use total sunblock to prevent burns & significant swelling of the lips in the sunshine.
  10. Eat a healthy balanced diet full of vitamins, minerals & anti-oxidants as follows:-
Vitamin B complex: for healthy skin, hair and nails (e.g. bananas; eggs; wholemeal bread; rice). These help to retain moisture, so skin looks plumper and younger; have anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and dry irritated skin and help even out blotchy skin tones.

Vitamins C&E: Improve wrinkles and skin texture and reduce the damage caused by free radicals such as sunlight, smoke, and pollution. (Vit C: bell peppers; broccoli; cauliflower; leafy greens. Vit E: vegetable oils; nuts; seeds; olives; spinach; asparagus)

Vitamin A: Anti-ageing effect which protects against dryness and flaking, through the maintenance and repair of skin. It may also help to reduce the risk of psoriasis (fruits and vegetables)

Vitamin K: helps blood clotting. When in combination with ACE vitamins, it is particularly good at reducing dark eye circles and bruises

Minerals

Zinc: important in acne to tame oil production or help skin lesions to clear sooner (oysters; lean meat and poultry; seeds and nuts; shellfish)

Copper: helps to promote elastin production for skin support and structure (as for zinc)

Selenium: helps to prevent skin cancer and protect skin from sun damage and burning (protein foods such as meat, poultry, beans, nuts, shellfish and eggs) .
