You probably already have your vacation planned with this beautiful weather. You have all the essentials: maps, sunglasses, outfits, and even a camera. While we understand that holiday is about enjoying the sun and relaxing, we also want you to take good care of your skin. Five solutions have been compiled that will make your holiday easier and help you avoid skin problems such as dullness and dehydration due to changes in the climate or diet. Canada Drugs Direct offers a wide variety of prescription, non-prescription, and pet-medical items. We have our offers and deals running throughout the year, for both existing and new.
1. Spend less time in the sun
Exposure to ultraviolet light can have serious consequences, as we all know. Although melanin protects the skin from ultraviolet rays and can cause skin to become wrinkled, discolored, and lose its elasticity, it can also burn the skin. This will lead to premature aging. People can also burn more easily in the summer because the skin needs to adjust to the sun.
2. Be free from bad habits
While it is difficult to adhere to rules while on holiday, indulgences can cause more harm than good. Although you may believe that smoking a few times a day is safe, studies have shown otherwise. Smoking reduces blood flow to the skin and deprives it of vital nutrients and oxygen. This bad habit can also damage collagen and elastin which are responsible for the skin’s strength, elasticity, and resilience. You will appear tired and less healthy after your holiday. We recommend that you quit before you go on your holiday. If you need help, our doctor can be reached at any time.
3. Food is not something to be shopped for.
This advice will be deemed obsolete. It may seem like fast food and desserts will make you happy during your holiday. But they are not. While it is natural to desire to try local cuisine, make sure to choose fresh fruits, vegetables, and lean protein. Research shows that foods high in vitamin C and low carbohydrate can help maintain a younger appearance.
4. Make sure you are prepared for your flight
Although it may seem strange that you need to protect your skin while flying, there is a good reason. The sun is the most dangerous rays when you fly, and the windows on the plane do not filter them. The cabins of airlines contain less oxygen which can cause skin damage and water retention. When you fly, make sure to use a moisturiser with an SPF rating. Also, make sure to close the blinds. If possible, choose an aisle seat instead of a window seat.
5. Be careful with your drink choices
Hydration is about being cautious with what you drink. Although a glass of wine is fine for dinner, drinking too much sugary or other sweet drinks can cause skin damage. Keep your skin hydrated, as 64% of our skin is water. Hydration improves skin thickness, density, and blood flow. Hydrated skin is less likely to crack or allow external factors to cause irritations.
