Some rules for healthy, youthful skin

These simple rules can form the foundation of a good skincare regime:

• Don’t smoke
Smoking causes the formation of age-inducing free radicals and dehydrates the skin rapidly increasing the formation of wrinkles and lines as we age.

• Be careful in the sun
Sun damage is the single greatest cause of ageing causing freckles, sun spots, pigmentation, wrinkles and at worst leading to skin cancer. This doesn’t mean you can’t have fun in the sun, but always wear sun protection of at least SPF 15 and avoid excessive periods of sun exposure.

• Drink lots of water
Hydrated skin is healthy and glowing. UV Rays, central heating and air condition, alcohol all dehydrate the skin. Dermal dehydration causes depletion of the dermis and will ultimately result in deeper wrinkles that are visible on the surface of the skin. Well-hydrated skin appears smooth and dewy on the surface. The epidermis will be plump, supple and bounce back easily, indicating good elasticity.

• Maintain a healthy diet
Healthy skin starts from the inside out. Provide your skin with vitamins and nutrients from foods rich in Omega-3, Vitamin C, A, and E which help to increase the production of collagen and elastin needed to keep the skin moist and youthful looking. Avoid excessive consumption of caffeine and alcohol which dehydrates the skin

Oral health/dental health touches every aspect of our lives but is often taken for granted. Your mouth is a window into the health of your body. It can show signs of nutritional deficiencies or general infection. Systemic diseases, those that affect the entire body, may first become apparent because of mouth lesions or other oral problems.
Whether you are 80 or 8, your oral health is important. Cavities remain the most prevalent chronic disease of childhood. Some fail to see a dentist each year, even though regular dental examinations and good oral hygiene can prevent most dental disease. Many people believe that they need to see a dentist only if they are in pain or think something is wrong, but regular dental visits can contribute to a lifetime of good oral health. If you are experiencing dental pain, don’t put off seeing a dentist. With dentistry’s many advances, diagnosis and treatment are more sophisticated and comfortable than ever.
You can practice good oral hygiene by always brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, cleaning between your teeth once a day with floss or another interdental cleaner, replacing your toothbrush every three or four months and also by eating a balanced diet and limiting between-meal snacks. Don’t forget to schedule regular dental check-ups to keep your smile, and yourself, healthy.
