Every one of us wants youthful and vibrant-looking skin. Of course, aging is a natural process; however, it can be overcome by various preventive measures. So what can be done? Here, are some anti-aging skin care tips that can significantly reduce the signs of aging.
UVA &UVB Sunscreen- The most valuable tip to overcome aging is to apply UVA and UVB protective sunscreen. Make sure to apply sunscreen lotions or cream to all areas of exposure to the sun. For those who are more likely to get exposed to the sun daily, sunscreen with SPF 30 is the perfect choice for daily use. Apply the sunscreen creams for at least 20 minutes before going out. Another easy way to moderate sun protection is to use cosmetics containing sunscreen.
Eyes and lips also need individual care so eye cream and lip balm containing sunscreens will be a better choice. Many advertisements show that the amount of time your skin can stay safe in the sun is calculated by multiplying the SPF number by the duration of exposure to the sun, do not get fooled by such advertisements.
The amount of time the skin can stay safe in the sun depends on various factors like the time of day, location, humidity, and inadequate application of sunscreen. Remember that healthy skin is the result of a healthy diet so make sure to include antioxidant-rich foods in your daily diet.
Omega-3-fatty acid – present in foods stimulates the formation of new, healthy cells. Salmon, walnuts, and spinach containing omega -3-fatty acids must be an essential part of your daily diet.
Avoid Smoking- Accumulation of nicotine narrows the blood vessels as well as reduces the formation of collagen and elastin causing premature aging.
Excess Sugar Consumption- Studies show that excess consumption of sugar can cause premature wrinkles and aging due to glycation. Glycation is a natural process that causes the sugars in the bloodstream to get fixed to some proteins resulting in harmful products called Advanced Glycation End products (AGE). The AGE can damage collagen and elastin causing the skin to sag.
Good sleep- Giving complete rest to your skin by getting a proper night’s sleep is the best way to keep your skin healthy. Getting plenty of sleep along with exercise and a balanced diet results in supple, healthy, and glowing skin.
Eternal beauty an impossible dream can be made into reality by taking proper care of your skin every minute.
