However, don’t use too tight headbands because can be potential to irritate the skin and also trap your sweat. And don’t forget to take shower about 45-60 minutes after exercise, otherwise sweat that you have during workout can trap dirt & bacteria!
Your skin not only needs a good circulation for oxygen, but also plenty of nutrients to keep its best shape. There are some essential nutrients that can help improve the health of your skin, but vitamin E, vitamin C, and selenium may have much more contribution than others.
Foods high in fiber, antioxidants, and healthy-protein such as vegetables, fruits, and fish low in mercury are commonly recommended. On the other hand, foods high in carbohydrate (especially simple carbohydrate) and fats (especially saturated fats /bad fats) should be restricted.
Like caffeine, excessive consumption of alcohol is also bad for the health of your skin.
Alcohol also can act as a diuretic which means it can make your body loss more water and even can dilate your blood vessels. As a result, you are more likely to have dry skin if you have bad habit of drinking alcohol too much!
In this modern living, it’s easier for your skin to get a directly contact with a lot of air pollutions (such as smoggy air, cigarette smoking, or car exhaust) every day. Therefore, it’s important to wash and clean your skin & face every day.
But again, don’t wash and clean your skin too often – as noted before!
You can use a gentle soap or gentle scrub to clean your face, and then don’t forget to use a moisturizer & retinoid cream – depending on the needs of your own skin.
During winter, don’t forget to keep drinking plenty of water a day and use a humidifier at home. And for summer, (if you don’t have persistently dry skin) you can use an oil-free moisturizer to prevent acne on the skin.
