Are you taking care of your body’s largest organ, your skin? Your skin plays a crucial role in your body by performing numerous functions that are essential to your body’s health and well-being, such as regulating temperature and protecting internal organs. In addition, maintaining a healthy and younger appearance aids in a positive self-image. That is why here at the Laser Café Medical Spa in San Diego, CA we work hard to determine, and provide treatment, to some of the biggest causes for skin wrinkles, lines and dehydration.

Call the Laser Café Medical Spa in San Diego today to learn more about our skin care treatments.

Today, we are going to share with you 10 ways you are hurting your skin without knowing it:

1. You stay up late or don’t get enough sleep

Your skin repairs itself while you are sleeping, therefore not getting a minimum of eight hours of sleep can lead to a dull, sallow complexion. This alone will leave your skin looking tired and pale, which in turn will make you look older than you actually are. Dark circles are also a common side effect for lack of sleep.

2. You drink too much coffee

Drinking too many cups of coffee a day, sometimes as an attempt to make up for the sleep you did not get, will make your skin go from dewy and plump to dull and dry. The reason for this is because caffeine makes skin dehydrated. Schedule your appointment today at Laser Café in San Diego to learn more about skin dehydration problems.

3. You do not wash your face before you go to bed

Just because you are too tired from working all day, does not mean it is ok to sleep without washing your face. Neglecting to cleanse your skin leads to a buildup of dirt and oil, which eventually causes bacterial infections and breakouts. Our advice is to keep a packet of face wipes next to your bed, so that even on a lazy day, you can still clean off your makeup. Using a cotton ball with a cleanser oil or water can be a great and easy way to clean your face too!

4. You drink too much alcohol

Excessive drinking can become very harmful to both your body and skin. Not only is alcohol unhealthy for your organs, but it can also dehydrate your skin. If you know that you are going to have a drink, make sure to have a glass of water for every alcoholic beverage you drink in order to keep your skin at a high hydration level.

5. You smoke

Even if you are not the one holding the cigarette and smoking, secondhand smoke can still affect you and your skin. Smoking cigarettes can trigger premature aging to occur, which in return causes the elastin and collagen to break down, leaving your skin looking saggy and dull.

6. You do not exercise on a regular basis.

Unfortunately, our bodies go through the natural aging process, making it impossible for our bodies to stay young forever. This is why it is a great idea to maintain a good shape, so you do not have to exercise excessively in the future to stay healthy. In addition, exercising regularly not only gives your skin a stunning glow immediately, but also helps you to keep your stress levels down.

7. You do not drink enough water during the day

Regardless of how healthy you are, if you do not get at least eight glasses of water a day, your body will not get enough hydration internally. Dehydration will make your skin appear dry resulting in unwanted flaky patches on the skin. If you are not a big fan of water, making it taste yummier by adding fruit slices can help you drink the eight glasses your body needs daily.

8. You don’t wear sunscreen because you think it breaks you out

The truth is that if you are using the wrong sunscreen, it might blew blemishes and clog your pores. If you are acne-prone, you should use an oil-free sunscreen formula. Otherwise, make sure that your sunscreen is “fragrance free” or “noncomedogenic” and is SPF 30 and above.
