46 @dayspamagazine • July 2019 Lifestyle advice that supports a healthy complexion. by TAYLOR FOLEY CLEAR CHOICES Americans make an average of 70 decisions in a typical day, according to Columbia Business School professor Sheena Iyengar. And at least some of those choices will arguably impact a person's skin health. Whether it's deciding when to wake up or what to eat for breakfast, one's daily habits can be directly refl ected in the complexion. "The skin is our body's largest organ, and lifestyle choices affect it much like other organ systems such as the heart, lungs or liver," says New York City-based dermatologist Adarsh Vijay Mudgil, MD. Unfortunately, plenty of people make poor decisions that can lead to all sorts of issues, from premature wrinkles and hyperpigmentation to acne and irritation. The good news? You can steer your guests in a skin-saving direction by encouraging a healthier lifestyle. "Just as you supply clients with a list of product recommendations after each treatment, you can provide them with a list of daily choices to implement into their routines," notes Danielle Cuccio, CEO and founder of health and wellness brand Cuccio Somatology. Here, leading experts break down the smart strategies every skincare pro should be suggesting, so that clients can learn to practice complexion-boosting behaviors. © GETTY IMAGES
