It can feel like an on-going battle to keep your skin, hair, and nails happy and healthy. Even the smallest changes to your everyday life can have a major impact on your skin. In fact, up to 85% of people have had acne at some point during their lives.
The good news is that if small changes can negatively impact your skin, then small changes can also positively impact your skin.
That said, here are a few little things to keep in mind the next time you suffer from dry skin or a breakout.
What’s your water like?
It’s no secret hydration helps to keep your skin healthy. But what’s in your water can also have a big impact on your skin’s health.
Many households have either soft water or hard water. Soft water is when there’s a low concentration of ions like calcium and magnesium. Hard water is when there’s a high concentration of calcium and magnesium.
Soft water isn’t as great when it comes to removing soap. This means it can leave a residue on your skin and leave you with clogged pores. That said, use your cleansers sparingly.
Hard water can make it difficult to get a good lather. This means you may be more likely to use more cleanser than necessary, which can increase dryness. Try using cleansers that are gentle and aren’t meant to lather.
Pay attention to the air quality in your home
Air quality may be the last thing on your mind when it comes to improving your skin. But air quality can have a surprisingly big impact on your pores.
Indoor air pollutants can damage your skin and even speed up the aging process. What’s more, dry indoor air can dehydrate your skin. Steer clear of smoky environments and run a humidifier to reduce dryness.
