Stop Sugar Spikes
Avoid processed foods that cause collagen damage and age skin, like added sugars and deep fried foods.
Protect your hands.
With this way of life I find I am washing lots more produce.
Exposure to water can be drying to skin and nails.
You might consider wearing gloves like these when you wash produce, dishes or anytime you get your hands wet or exposed to cleansers/chemicals to clean.
After washing hands or exposing them to moisture, be sure to pat completely dry with a clean, dry towel.
Many moisturizing creams contain unnecessary chemicals which can be damaging to skin. Some “non-greasy” formulas contain alcohol (which can be drying to the skin) in order to make them dry quickly after application. Instead, use pure, 100% aloe vera gel on affected areas, especially before bed.
