(HealthDay News) -- Achieving and maintaining healthy, glowing skin involve more than just keeping it clean.

Here are suggestions from the American Academy of Dermatology:

  • Apply sunscreen every day before you head outdoors. Look for one that's water resistant with an SPF of at least 30.
  • Avoid smoking, which can age your skin and slow wound healing.
  • Find ways to manage stress.
  • Perform regular self-exams to look for signs of skin cancer.
  • Wash your face when you wake, before bed and any time you sweat. Choose products designed for your skin type, such as sensitive, oily or dry.
  • Never scrub your skin, which can be irritating.
