A wise man once said that people become wiser as they are getting older. But, you know how it is in life – you win some and you lose some. There will always be two sides of the medal. As time goes on, you will be forced to take certain measures in order to keep your skin in a good condition. Unfortunately, you know it won’t be tight and young forever. Through life, skin is exposed to various factors which can lead to sagging and appearance of wrinkles, such as gravity, fluctuations in weight or harmful effects of the sun. Due to all these factors, your skin will need more time to repair and produce collagen, the major skin protein responsible for its suppleness, structure and strength. So, how to resist aging? How to nourish your skin in order to keep it young and beautiful?
- Hydrate and moisturize your skin
Drinking lots of water during the day will not only improve your general health but it will also make your skin hydrated. Therefore, it will look smooth and younger. Also, by using different moisturizers during the summer and winter when your skin is more exposed to drying due to extreme wheatear conditions, you will be able to prevent dull or deflated skin. Intake of fluid and investing in quality moisturizers will help your skin to stay beautiful with youthful appearance.
- Avoid losing too much weight
The skin is very elastic, so it might not be a good idea to lose weight rapidly. On the contrary, with gradual weight loss your skin will become gradually narrowed. In this way you will prevent the occurrence of stretch marks. So, be patient and lose your weight slowly especially after your thirties. Needles to say, this is not the only reason that rapid weight loss is generally not recommended, as it may have a number of other harmful effects on your health.
- Use sunscreen
Wear a sunscreen, especially during dangerous hours when UV radiation is higher than normal. Nevertheless, the sunlight is the main source of vitamin D, which is very important for your health. Sunscreen with high factor will prevent its intake through skin pores, so try using factors 10 to 15 for both protection and intake of vitamins.
- Benefits of exfoliation
You can also fight sagging with regular exfoliation. Not only you will help your skin to regenerate more quickly but you will get rid of dead skin cells which could accumulate in skin pores and cause some serious skin problems. Also, you will be stimulating your circulation while taking a shower with warm water. However, make sure that the water is just that, warm, as hot showers might dry out your skin significantly and make it more susceptible to irritations. You should also limit the duration and frequency of your showers, as doing it too often, or for too long might result in the removal of protective oils from your skin, which, again, leads to complications.
- Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol
There is no need to mention how harmful cigarettes and alcohol really are. If something is bad for your organism in general, then it also means it is bad for your skin too. Nicotine affects degenerately on producing collagen while alcohol causes dehydration.
- Intake of vitamin C
Vitamin C stimulates production of a collagen and boosts your resistance to UV radiation. You can get it through healthy diet or by intake of various tablets of vitamin C.
