It doesn’t matter whether you are currently 25, 30, 40 or 50 or 55 because no matter what your age is, you are always subject and prone to skin aging. That is why any time and any age is always a prime time to prevent and slow down skin aging. While there are so many treatments, methods and products that can certainly address skin aging, we are going to focus on the easy and convenient ways. Since these ways are primarily for convenience, these include almost zero preparation, zero downtime and zero expenses! Here are 3 easy ways how you can fight off skin aging:
Avoiding the Sun
While the sun is actually a pretty good friend for our skin as it provides vitamin D, too much sun can lead to skin damage since UV lights can penetrate and attack our skin cells. However, it is very challenging for most people because people are likely to go out during the day to do their daily routines and responsibilities. And so, it is almost impossible to avoid and evade the sun. But being able to avoid and evade it is very rewarding! Additionally, while sometimes it is really impossible to avoid the sun, preparing for it can reduce the effects of sun damage! Here are some ways that you can do when you go out in the sun:
- Wearing sunglasses
- Wearing wide-brimmed hats
- Wearing long sleeve shirts and windbreakers
- Wearing light-colored shirts
- Applying sunscreen
- Bringing an umbrella
Welcome the Water
Water is the best way to naturally hydrate our body. And so when our body takes in water and gets hydrated, our skin improves dramatically! It may not seem like much is going on but on a cellular level, water replenishes our skin cells, improves elasticity, and helps with collagen production! Additionally, hydrating with water aids our body from flushing out toxins and unwanted properties.This helps our skin become healthy and toxin-free! With the skin becoming healthy and really plumped with water, our skin does not easily succumb to any damage, toxins and imbalances. This of course includes skin aging!
Additional Tip: Try lessening the amount of alcohol intake because it dehydrates our skin cells.
Hoist Healthy Food
Of course, one of the most important and beneficial in preventing skin aging is eating healthy. Having a bad or poor diet often leads to premature skin aging since the skin is readily susceptible to sun damage, toxins and other factors that lead to skin aging. And so, having a good diet means healthy living, a healthy body and beautiful skin! One of the most common and really helpful recommendations is to include fruits and vegetables in your meals. But it isn’t just fruits and vegetables that are recommended! Those that contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory too are most beneficial in protecting your skin from skin aging. Some of these foods include:
- Olive Oil
- Green Tea
These three ways are the most basic but these are the most important ones. These also serve as stepping stones if you want to really start protecting your skin and making it healthy. Additionally, you can complement these three practices with treatments, cosmetic products and proper lifestyle. That way, you will achieve the utmost result of really slowing down skin-aging and be at your prime health!
