Stop unhealthy vices.
Smoking, drinking, and doing drugs are all negative steps for your goal of living longer and looking younger. If you can eradicate all three then you are on your way to beating premature aging. Not only are these vices bad for the skin, they are terrible for the whole body. Smoking for example does not only cause skin wrinkling it also constricts blood vessels and decreases oxygen flow to the skin. Your skin will surely be damaged by smoking.
Keep your skin protected from the sun.
Although sun exposure is needed by the body, having too much of it is bad for the body as well. Avoid the terrible sun hours from 10am to 4pm. During safe hours though still carry with you necessary protection from the sun’s rays. Wear sunscreen that has high SPF. Aside from sunscreen, bring with you an umbrella or a large brimmed hat. Avoid the sun especially during hot weathers such as summer. If you really must get exposed to the sun make sure you are ready for it. Cover up even with clothes or look for structures than can protect you like a tree or a shed.
Moisturize your skin.
It is important to keep your skin moisturized and the same goes with your hair and nails. It may seem like too much work but actually all you need is just a few minutes each day to moisturize all three body parts. With the use of just one product, moisturize hair, nails, and skin. What product can you use to moisturize all three? Argan oil. Argan oil is all natural and is safe for all three parts. It has rich components that keep premature aging away. Some of these components include vitamin E and antioxidants that are known anti-aging nutrients. Apply a few drops of this oil to your body each day and see the difference.
The daily water requirement each day is 8 glasses. During hotter seasons though such as summer, increase your water consumption. Same goes when you are playing sports or are involved in strenuous activities. Hydrating helps keep your skin healthy and you to look and feel young. Bring a water bottle everywhere you go to help you hydrate. Leave water in your car and always have water at work or in school.
Looking and feeling young is possible. Avoiding premature aging can be achieved. With these simple tips you’ll surely be able to slow down the aging process.
