Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body? You exercise and eat right to keep your other organs healthy, like the heart, liver and kidneys. Your skin deserves to be treated well, too. After all, it takes quite a beating over the years, what with exposure to the sun, cold weather and environmental toxins.

Experts agree that eating a nutritious diet rich in fresh veggies, whole grains and fish can help maintain the skin’s youthfulness and clarity. According to BruDirect, supplementation with vitamins A, C and E can protect your face from sun damage and wrinkles.

Getting your beauty rest is vital too, and the recommended eight hours of sleep each night can ward off dark circles and puffy eyes.

For some women, however, following these tips may not yield the results they want. Expectant mothers in particular may suffer from acne due to the hormonal changes in their bodies, or from melasma, a condition in which dark patches appear on the face during pregnancy.

If you are one of these ladies, laser skin rejuvenation might be worth looking into. The safe, minimally invasive technique can treat discoloration and create a brighter, more even skin tone. Your skin protects you every day, and treating it well can make you feel happier and healthier for years to come.
