How to keep your skin healthy
Protect it from the sun:
UV rays in sunlight are a major cause of skin ageing and skin cancer. Protect skin from sun damage by avoiding direct sunlight on sunny days or in hot countries, and by using sunscreen.
Drink less alcohol:
Drinking alcohol can dehydrate your skin, leaving it looking tired and old. Drink alcohol in responsible amounts and stay hydrated.
Wash skin regularly using mild soap and warm water, but too much washing or harsh soaps can dry skin out. Moisturise after washing if you have dry skin.
