Want to stay looking young forever? Then follow these tips!
Like it or not, everyone’s skin ages. Years of UV exposure and environmental exposure can be taxing on your skin! But, luckily, there are ways to prevent premature aging and maintain your skin once it has reached a mature age.
What to Avoid
Tanning beds or long periods of sun exposure
UV rays penetrate your skin and actually damage the DNA in your skin cells! This can cause wrinkles, sun spots, and dryness.
Cigarette smoke contains toxins that stresses your skin which causes wrinkles and dryness
Too much alcohol
Alcohol dehydrates the skin and drinking too much can actually trigger broken blood vessels and rosacea -- a skin condition that causes redness and pimple-like bumps. Enjoy your glass of wine, but avoid drinking too much!
Studies have shown that women who eat more fruits and vegetables actually have less wrinkles than women who eat unhealthy snacks and high amounts of red meat. Try to eat foods that are high in antioxidant and ant-inflammatory properties!
Repeated facial movements
This may seem odd, but consistent frowning or pursed lips can be a sign of stress and can lead to wrinkles! Find ways to relieve your stress and in turn, protect your skin from wrinkles. Squinting often also falls into this category. Wear sunglasses when outside!
What can I Do?
Luckily, there are many things you can do to protect and maintain your skin!
This is our #1 tip for maintaining youthful skin. You should wear sunscreen every single day, no matter if you aren’t planning on being in the sun, if it’s overcast, or if it’s winter! UV rays can ALWAYS damage your skin, and it is proven that sun exposure causes wrinkles. Wear a sunscreen that is at least SPF 30 and a hat for extra protection when you are outside in the sun!
Use a moisturizer everyday
Moisture is ESSENTIAL for aging skin. It helps combat the dryness that comes along with aging skin and will give you a youthful glow!
Drink lots of water
Staying hydrated is also essential for keeping your skin hydrated. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
Eat a healthy diet
What goes in your body usually shows on the outside. Eating well balanced meals full of fruits and vegetables can help with wrinkles and inflammation.
Exercising most days of the week boosts circulation and can improve the immune system, which will give your skin a youthful appearance!
