Avoid cigarettes Yes, they’re marketed to be sexy, edgy, and cool. But they’re none of the above. Smoking not only gives you a more sallow look, but you actually look older after prolonged cigarette smoking. Wrinkles will increase because smoking reduces the moisture present in your skin, especially the face. Two words: Just quit.
Use Natural Products When you choose skin care products, read the labels. Focus on products that are organic. Keep away from stuff with lots of alcohol. The problem with alcohol is that it’s an astringent. That’s just a fancy word for anything that sucks the moisture out of your skin and is acidic to boot. If you’re looking to rejuvenate your skin, why would you slather it in a drying acid?
Workout I know, I know. You’ve heard it a million times. You’ll lose weight and feel better. But here’s an added benefit: your skin will thank you. Prolonged cardiovascular activity makes you look younger by improving your circulation. More life-giving blood to your skin will keep it moisturized and chock-full of the nutrients you’re already eating.
Eat Better Avoid sugar, plain and simple. You’ll lose weight and feel better. Your endurance will increase. And better circulation means better workouts which, in the long run, mean younger looking skin. Drink plenty of water every day and avoid caffeine.
Stay Out of the Sun The sun will leather-ize your skin very quickly. Get used to wearing hats and sunglasses. Cover up when you’re in the sun, and use sunscreen.
There are plenty of other details for preventing wrinkles, but the above should be an excellent start. Much of skin care is simply a shift in lifestyle and habits. Physical activity and eating are important, as well as a daily regiment for what you do with your skin. Get ready to look younger.
