Most of us do not want to get old before our time, but we lead such busy lives that we don’t set aside any time to take care of our skin. Your skin goes through a lot every day and many cities are polluted with smoke and dust from all of the cars that are driving around, and from the ongoing construction that never seems to stop. The weather is changing also and the climate here in Australia seems to be getting hotter every single year. This has a detrimental effect on the elasticity of your skin and it will be dried off in no time if you don’t take the necessary precautions. Your skin needs protection from the sun and it needs to be cleansed on a very regular basis. This is why it is best to set up some kind of skin care routine that you can follow at the end of your working day. This advice applies to both male and female people.

- Sun protection – This is probably one of the most important things that you can do to ensure that you protect your skin and give it the necessary skin care that it needs. It is always a good idea to use a moisturiser and to use some sunscreen as well. If you can, try to stay in the shade as much as possible between the hours of 10 AM and 4 PM. You should always try to wear clothing that helps to protect your skin like shirts with long sleeves, long trousers and a hat with a wide brim.
- Take care of your skin – There are a number of things that you can do like not taking showers and baths that last too long. When you do this you are removing the essential oils from your skin, so don’t stay in there too long. You should try to avoid what is known as ‘strong soaps’ because these can also strip the oil from your skin and leave your skin looking dry and tired. If you need to shave the skin on your body always make sure that you use shaving cream with added moisturisers. It is essential that you use a sharp razor and shave in the direction the hair grows, and not the opposite way.

As well as the above tips, you should always try to eat a healthy diet that is abundant in fresh fruits and vegetables. Always try to have a bottle of water in your hand so that you are drinking water regularly throughout the day.
