- Watch your workouts. Sweating exposes your skin to salt water, which can break down the skin's defenses and allow more ultraviolet light and pollutants to reach skin cells. Working out indoors, can eliminate 80% of UVB penetration.
- Check the back of the bottle. Propylene glycol, an ingredient found in prescription cortisones and many moisturizes and cleansers, can irritate the skin and cause inflammation.
- Say no to processed foods. A diet high in white flour and sugar can create so-called glycation reactions between molecules in the skin. This reaction binds collagen and decreases elasticity, so the skin becomes more susceptible to fracture.
- Simmer down. Emotional stress causes the release of immune compounds called histamines, which can cause inflammation and disrupt the matrix of skin cells.
