Looking after your skin doesn’t have to be a lot of time-intensive work. Although the skin is the largest single organ that humans have, it’s surprisingly simple to take better care of it. The more effort that you put into your skincare routine, the easier it will be to get that healthy look. Even if you think that you don’t have time for skincare, just doing the basics can be enough to make a dramatic change to the healthy levels of your skin. From delaying the effects of aging to the prevention of many skin problems, here are the best things that you can do to get started on having healthier skin.

Preventing Sun Damage

One of the best things that you can do to protect your skin is to make sure that the sun’s harmful rays aren’t causing wrinkles or age spots. The good news is that there are plenty of very simple ways to protect your skin from the damage that can be caused by the sun:


  • Use sunscreen: Ideally, you want a broad-spectrum sunscreen that comes with at least 15 SPF. Remember to reapply your sunscreen if you go swimming.


  • Stay in the shade: Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun, and you should avoid those times of day when the sun is at its most intense. 


  • Get kitted up: Protective clothing is one of the most effective ways to look after your skin in the hot summers. Long-sleeved shirts and t-shirts can protect your arms, while wide-brimmed hats are perfect for protecting the face.

Stop Smoking

This is a big step, but it’s also one of the most effective changes you can make to your life if you want your skin to look and feel healthier. Smoking makes your skin look noticeably older, and is a surefire way to get more wrinkles. Smoking causes so many different types of damage to skin that it’s hard to list them all, but the biggest issues include:


  • Narrowing of blood vessels which leads to paler skin
  • Collagen and elastin damage that makes your skin weaker and less elastic

Quitting smoking isn’t easy, but if you talk to your doctor about the options that will best help you, your skin could look noticeably better in no time.

Get Your Vitamins

Some vitamins can help promote healthier skin. One of the most important is, of course, Vitamin C. This potent antioxidant aids your skin when it comes to the natural regeneration process, and that means that by adding more Vitamin C into your skincare routine you can help your body to repair any previously damaged cells. There are plenty of ways that you can get yourself more Vitamin C, but perhaps the most effective method currently available is by using liposomal vitamins. What are liposomal vitamins? They are a time delay method for getting vitamins exactly where they need to be before they start working, and that means that their effectiveness is massively improved.

Looking after your skin doesn’t need to be a chore. Be aware of the weather, take your vitamins, and try and drop some of your unhealthy skin habits. Your skin could be looking younger, fresher, and healthier for much longer.
