The Top 10 Things to Avoid for Healthy Skin

February 1st, 2014 • Posted by Facelogic Spa • Permalink

We all want to look our best and present with youthful, radiant skin. The face is what is first seen by others. It shows our personality and emotion. We have a simple list of items to avoid so that you can show your best face to the world.

  1. Going unprotected.
    We're all bright enough to know that sunscreen is a must. It protects us from burning, wrinkling, and other signs of premature aging.

  2. Soaping it up.
    Using soap instead of cleanser on our faces is a sure way to strip our skin of healthy oils, leaving us with fine lines that aren't actually very
    fine at all.

  3. Squeezing when we shouldn't.
    As tempting as it may be to pop them to Kingdom Come, leave the mitts off the zits.

  4. Getting all touchy-feeling.
    It's impossible to keep our hands clean, so try not to touch your face as you go about your day. There's no reason to introduce
    germs to your pretty mug.

  5. Becoming aggressive.
    There are a ton of at-home products that promise you a "spa-like" chemical peel or microdermabrasion. Exhibit extra caution if you
    decide to try one of these kits. They can be damaging in the wrong hands. A professional is always the best choice if you're wanting to affect bigger change in your skin than simple exfoliation!

  6. Lighting up.
    Smoking impairs blood flow, meaning less oxygen and nutrients can get to our skin. Plus, there are at least 4,000 different chemicals in
    tobacco and many of them are known to damage collagen and elastin.

  7. Eating like a kid home alone.
    Just because we're adults and can choose our own meals doesn't mean we should toss out the food pyramid. Plenty of
    colorful fruits and veggies will make our skin glow from within.

  8. Drinking the wrong things.
    Okay, this is admittedly a drag, but caffeine and alcohol sap our skin of hydration, leaving us prone to wrinkles.

  9. Not drinking the right things.
    Water. Water. Water. Enough said.

  10. Skimping on the moisture.
    Find a moisturizer you adore and bathe your skin in it for a dewy appearance.

There's no reason you can't look your best and with these 10 tips, there's no excuse not to. If you'd like to give your skin a little extra TLC, call us at and make an appointment today.
