Protect Your Skin From Premature Aging With These Tips: When we are younger, an abundance of elastin, collagen and glycosaminoglycans (GAG) keeps our skin looking smooth, taut and wrinkle-free. As we age, the decrease in collagen, elastin and GAG production results in the formation of wrinkles and sagging skin. Several external factors such as exposure to the sun, pollution and chemicals can lead to premature aging of the skin. Here are a few things you can do to slow down the aging process and protect your skin from showing signs of premature aging.
Maintain A Healthy Diet
Did you know that maintaining a healthy diet is a key part of your skin care regimen? Eating foods rich in antioxidants, omega-3, monounsaturated fat and vitamin E protects the skin from free-radical damage, improves the tone and texture of the skin and keeps it looking supple and taut.
When the skin gets dehydrated, it begins to look wrinkled and rough. Keeping the skin hydrated by drinking at least 8 glasses of water is the easiest way to get suppler, younger-looking skin. There are several other benefits to staying hydrated, including weight loss and increased energy, so don’t skim on the water. Raise that glass every chance you get.
Cleanse and Exfoliate Regularly
Regular cleansing and exfoliation will help to clear away pore-clogging debris, leaving the skin looking fresh, clean, and smooth. Cleansing and exfoliation must always be done gently, using the highest quality skincare products that do not contain alcohol and other drying agents.
Cleanse your skin at least once a day. Exfoliation does not need to be done so often. Once a week is usually enough. Make sure to use a gentle facial scrub and rub into your skin gently so you do not damage it.
Moisturizer seals in the moisture on the skin and keeps the skin hydrated for a longer period of time. When skin on the face and neck is properly hydrated it thwarts the formation of wrinkles and keeps the skin looking smooth, taut and wrinkle-free.
Protect Your Hands
Our hands are usually the first to show signs of aging. One of the reasons for this is because the skin on the hands is thinner than the skin on other parts of the body. Added to this is the fact that our hands are constantly exposed to various damaging elements throughout the day, from soaps and detergents to the sun’s rays while driving. All of these together contribute to age the skin on the hands prematurely. We go to great lengths to protect the skin on our face and neck, why not take a few minutes to protect our hands too?
Here are 3 things you can do:
- Wear protective gloves while driving and doing the dishes.
- Every time you wash your hands, rehydrate your skin by applying a good hand moisturizer such as NEW DU’IT Tough Hands for Her.
- Get a professional manicure at least once a month or once in two months.
