Many people don't realize that their skin is an organ, it is actually the largest organ in the body and, as such, needs to be well cared for. Healthy skin is indicative of a healthy body. If you are looking for a dermatologist in Tulsa, OK, you can make an appointment with Dr. Lynn Anderson, Dr. Kristen Rice, or Dr. Jacqueline Guidry of Midtown Dermatology for the care your skin deserves.
Beautiful healthy skin starts with the care you provide for your skin at home every day. All family members can benefit from a few simple things that make your skin happy.
Everyone knows that the human body is primarily water. About 60% of your body and 90% of your blood is water. To keep water at the correct level in your body, you need to drink lots of water every day. For men, that amounts to 3.7 liters, and for women, 2.7 liters. If you are not getting enough, your skin may be lackluster and dry and this can emphasize wrinkles. Nobody wants to emphasize wrinkles.
Keeping your skin clean is an important part of home care. You should wash your skin gently once or twice a day, rinse with cool water and pat dry. You should exfoliate once a week to get rid of old tired skin. Be very gentle with the skin around your eyes.
The main way to moisturize your skin is to drink the recommended amount of water, but after doing that, you need to apply a moisturizer that is right for your type of skin. It may take a little trial and error to find the one that does it for you, but be patient, it is worth it and your skin will thank you and so will your dermatologist in Tulsa, OK.
After drinking the correct amount of water every day, the most important thing you can do for your skin is to wear sunscreen. No one wants skin cancer and even if you don't get skin cancer, the sun damages your skin.
Your skincare may start at home, but when you need help to keep your skin looking its best, a visit to the dermatologist or an aesthetician may be in order. Lots of treatments are available to keep you looking young and radiant for as long as possible.
