Whatever anyone else might say about dermatologists, they hold the key to much valued anti-aging secrets, and the surprising thing is you really don’t need to go under the knife to look young. Here are a few tips that will help significantly improve the condition of your skin, as well as significantly slow down the effects of aging.
First off, regular exercise is a must to keep your skin healthy. This is pretty basic, but keeping your whole body healthy encompasses all your bodily systems, including the skin. In addition, constantly working those muscles will improve your circulation and increase the nutrient flow into all the organs, much more the skin giving it a rosy glow.
Though exercise is a good thing, exercising well is just as important. For instance, if you have a habit of tensing your face and neck muscles, this can ultimately lessen the strength in these muscles and cause the surrounding skin to sag. Try to have fun while you’re working out. Think of it as an anti-aging endeavor that renders just as much enjoyment as well as health benefits.
Smoking is a definite no-no. Aside from preventing oxygen to fully circulate to the skin, it also causes the skin to discolor.
This might seem a bit strange, but don’t get too disappointed that you didn’t get a window seat on the plane. Passengers in window seats tend to be exposed to high levels of UV radiation in the higher altitude. Even down on the ground, it’s best to keep out of direct sunlight, or avoid going outdoors between ten in the morning and four in the afternoon. It is important to always lather on sunscreen lotion. Apply Argan oil on your skin daily as the oil also protects the skin from damaging effects of free radicals and they keep the skin well moisturized.
Avoid peeling your skin as this exposes the underlying layers of skin to microorganisms, subsequently causing irritation. Bacterial infection is also what causes acne and individuals with acne tend to have scarring in some form.
Going to bed early is a must if you want to maintain your youthful appearance. Human growth hormone is produced in high levels, promoting collagen production. Night time is also a great time to apply Argan oil as it contains enzymes that help increase collagen levels as well.
And of course, the ultimate health tip—this secret has been uncovered so many times but few of us have an easy time keeping it. Stick to a healthy diet, preferably one with lots of fruits and vegetables for the micronutrients your skin needs, and skip on excessive sugary and salty junk food. You’ll definitely see a difference in your skin in a couple of weeks.
