What is the MOST important skin care secret you need to know for youthful skin? If you said "Protecting from the harmful rays of the sun!” you get a gold star.

Appearance and personality go a long way in the world today. Wherever you go, the first impression a person has of you is based on your looks and the way you carry yourself. A good skin will be a boon to your appearance. When you look good, your confidence will bring out the best in your personality. Statistics show that more and more people are developing skin cancer of various forms and that figures have actually reached an all-time high. It is claimed that there could be a link between sunburn sustained as a child and present-day development of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer which grows extremely fast.

Unfortunately, even with some of the so-called natural products on the market, you still have to read the labels to make sure they don't contain ingredients like mineral oil. Mineral oil is a byproduct of the crude oil industry and is a waste product. It's used by many companies as a cheap filler ingredient to which more expensive ingredients can be added.

Sunlight is a major cause of skin aging, according to the National Institute of Health (NIH). We all know sunburn is obvious skin damage. But, did you know that short, repeated exposure to the sun (also called chronic sun exposure) is a major cause of skin damage too. The sun dehydrates your skin and causes freckles, marks, pigmentation, spots and wrinkles. The cure lies in protecting your skin from the sun. You should avoid long and direct exposure to the sun.

Other methods of obtaining healthy skin include eating the proper foods and drinking plenty of water to keep you hydrated. The human body is made up primarily of water. Thus in order to keep your skin hydrated and preventing it from drying out; consuming plenty of water every day is highly recommended.
