Our Top 5 Tips for Healthy Skin Care

With all this talk about 50 being the new 40, 40 being the new 30, and so on, it seems like there’s more pressure to do as much as we can to keep up our appearance as we age. To some, this might mean taking extreme measures, but there are some simple things you can do to keep that youthful glow.

Here are our top 5 tips for healthy skin care:

1. Protect yourself from the sun.
One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems, as well as increase the risk of skin cancer.

Use sunscreen. We use and recommend Elta MD products which also contain a PHYSICAL sun block!
Seek shade. Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., when the sun’s rays are strongest.
Wear protective clothing. Cover your skin with tightly woven long-sleeved shirts, long pants and wide-brimmed hats.

2. Be kind to your skin.
Limit bath time. Hot water and long showers or baths remove oils from your skin. Limit your bathing time, and use warm — rather than hot — water.
Avoid strong soaps. Strong soaps and detergents can strip oil from your skin. Instead, choose mild cleansers. Not sure where to start? Hotze Pharmacy carries Andalou products, which are free of chemicals.
Shave carefully. To protect and lubricate your skin, apply shaving cream, lotion or gel before shaving. For the closest shave, use a clean, sharp razor. Shave in the direction the hair grows, not against it.
Pat dry. After washing or bathing, gently pat or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains on your skin.
Moisturize dry skin. If your skin is dry, use a moisturizer that fits your skin type. Our Physicians use and recommend Hotze Pharmacy for all of their skincare needs.

3. Don’t smoke.
Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin, which decreases blood flow. This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important to skin health. Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles.

Smoking also damages collagen and elastin, the fibers that give your skin strength and elasticity. In addition, the repetitive facial expressions you make when smoking — such as pursing your lips when inhaling and squinting your eyes to keep out smoke — can contribute to wrinkles.

If you smoke, the best way to protect your skin is to quit. Ask your doctor for tips or treatments to help you stop smoking.

4. Eat a healthy diet and take your supplements and hormones.
A healthy diet, combined with your supplements and hormones can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins. A diet rich in vitamin C and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin. If you are not taking bioidentical hormones, then please discuss this with your physician.

5. Manage stress and get enough sleep
Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin — and a healthy state of mind — take steps to manage your stress. Set reasonable limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy. Make sure that you aren’t skimping on sleep to get more done. This will impact your skin health. Take a deep breath, go for a walk and learn to say “no.” The results might be more dramatic than you expect (and carry over to more than your skin).

Do you have symptoms of hormone decline and imbalance?

Did you know that hormone decline and imbalance can affect your hair, skin and nails? Do you suffer from fatigue, weight gain, hot flashes, migraines, brain fog, depressed moods, insomnia, anxiety, low libido, irregular menstrual cycles or menstrual cramps? Take our symptom checker to help discover what could be the underlying cause.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
