9. Protect Against Sun Exposure
When you have white spots on your face, it is very important to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun as well as artificial sources of UV light.
Protect your skin by applying a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 all over any exposed skin. Apply the sunscreen generously and reapply it every two hours.
Also, wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect your neck, ears, eyes, forehead, nose, and scalp from sun exposure. Also, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants made of materials that block out light to protect your skin from the sun.
In addition, do not use tanning beds or sunlamps.
10. Healthy Diet
For any kind of skin problem, eating a healthy diet is a must. A skin-friendly diet can help maintain healthy skin and restore its glow and beauty.
First of all, you need to eat foods rich in antioxidants like fresh fruits and vegetables to fight free-radical damage. A diet high in vitamins A, C, E, and B will also help maintain beautiful and flawless skin.
Also, eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as sunflower seeds, avocados, salmon, and walnuts. Eating more dark and pigmented vegetables like beetroots, carrots, and spinach can also help a lot.
Plus, include water-rich fruits and vegetables in your diet, as they help hydrate the skin gradually and naturally as well as delivering nutrients.
Last but not least, drink plenty of water daily to help your body flush out harmful toxins.
