So you want to look younger longer. Of course! No one wants to see dull looking skin with lines and wrinkles on their face. While aging is a natural process and something that couldn’t be stopped, there is no reason to let your skin tell the world your real age. Here are a few tips to get years off your face and have young looking skin without spending too much time and money.
Protect Against The Sun
Most of the skin changes associated with aging is a result of a lifetime of sun exposure. Exposure to UV rays affects the elastin of the skin and causes the appearance of wrinkles, leathery texture and pigmentation. To protect against the sun’s damaging UV rays, the following tips are recommended:
- Avoid the sun during its most intense hours. Limit the time you spend outdoors and between 10 am and 4 pm try your best to stay indoors.
- Wear a wide brimmed hat, long sleeved shirts and trousers. Tightly woven fabrics offer better protection against loosely woven or knitted ones.
- Use a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of 15 or higher. Slather generously on your skin at least 15 minutes before going outside. Reapply every two hours and more frequently if you sweat a lot.
Smoking is not only harmful to your lungs but to your skin as well. Smoking promotes the breakdown of collagen and reduces the amount of collagen produced thus reducing the natural elasticity of skin. Collagen production gradually decreases as part of the aging process but smoking actually accelerates it. When you smoke, you deprive your skin with much needed oxygen and nutrients because your blood vessels tighten and constrict resulting to reduced elasticity and premature skin aging. Stub out your cigarettes and have your skin look years younger than it actually is.
Watch The Alcohol
Alcohol dehydrates your body and your skin. Dry skin leaves you looking tired and old. Drink plenty of water when drinking alcohol to hydrate your body and your skin. Alternate between non-alcoholic drinks like soda and juice in between alcoholic drinks. Limit your drinking to sensible amounts and keep your skin happy and young.
Daily Argan Oil Habit
Nothing makes your skin dull and old-looking more than dry skin does. Daily application of an effective moisturizer will keep your skin young looking and beautiful. The Argan oil is packed with essential fatty acids that seal moisture into your skin and keep it moisturized, supple and smooth.
