How Habits at Home Can Affect Your Skin

Is what you’re doing at home affecting your skin? The Doctors investigate! 

Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon and dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra check out two different areas in the home for possible reasons behind your skin problems.

In The Kitchen

Dr. Ordon notes that processed foods and unhealthy fats can age the skin. Also, eating foods with sugar can cause inflammation, which produces enzymes that break down collagen and elastin, whose function is to keep skin tight. They say it’s a must to stay hydrated, as water can flush out impurities in the skin. They also say to swap out your fruit juices, which can be packed with sugar, and eat actual whole fruit instead. If eating late at night is your issue, The Doctors recommend stocking your fridge in advance with healtyh antioxidant-rich foods (fish, carrots, tomatoes, green leafy vegetables), that will help keep your skin looking its best.

In The Bathroom

When it comes to your beauty regime in the bathroom, The Doctors explain that less could mean more for your complexion and that it’s best to simplify your beauty regime. They recommend tossing out products that you haven’t used in the last 6 months, as they may not work as effectively as when you bought them or could be expired. Dr. Batra says she loves a serum as they easily absorb and penetrate deeply into the skin. She recommends No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum, which has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in just 4 weeks. It’s also under $30 dollars and available at Target.
