7 Tips on Maintaining the Youthful Beauty of Your Skin
Keeping your skin supple and young is an uphill battle that gets increasingly difficult with time.
Thankfully, there are methods to feel and look young that have lasted the test of time. In this article, we’re going to explore some of the best ways to preserve glowing, youthful skin well into your old age.
Tip #1: Bedtime Routines
You spend a third of your lifetime asleep. Many people wake up with dry skin forgetting there are products you can use to preserve your skin’s health while you’re sleeping. Preventing dry skin is easier than treating the problem once it rears its ugly head. Make sure to try an assortments of night serums, oils, and moisturizers before you go to bed in order to limit the damage that can occur overnight.
Tip #2: Sun Protection
The sun is responsible for more than 90% of fine lines, making sunscreen an absolute must if you want to age slower than everyone else. Protection from UVA and UVB is the order of the day, so make sure to use an SPF of 30 or higher 20 minutes before sun exposure for best effects.
Tip #3: Avoid Refined Sugar
Sugar can wreak havoc on your skin through a process known as glycation, where the collagen and elastin in the skin are adversely affected, resulting in inflammation and other skin problems. Sugar can also dehydrate skin, causing dark circles and puffy-looking skin. Opt for low-glycemic fiber-rich carbs instead.
Tip #4: Beauty Sleep
Your skin is your largest organ and repairs itself while you sleep. Ensure you practice good sleep hygiene, have regular sleep cycles, and prioritize extra sleep over watching an extra television show or two to see long-lasting results that don’t cost a thing. Never underestimate simple basic techniques.
Tip #5: Get Your Vitamin C
An essential component in many skincare products for good reason, Vitamin C is essential for pigment production and collagen health. It also prevents damage to the skin from UV radiation.
Include lemons, oranges, and spinach in your diet for dietary vitamin C. Supplement this with face masks, serums, and moisturizers that contain vitamin C to make sure it finds its way into the recesses of the skin, where it can work its magic.
Tip #6: Retinol
Well-known as the gold standard in reversing skin aging, this exceedingly fragile molecule reacts with the retinoid receptors in the skin to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, dynamic and static lines caused by age. This is a powerful all-natural prescription formula that fights aging at the cellular level.
Tip #7: Coenzyme Q
Proven to reduce crow’s feet and wrinkles around the eyes, ubiquinone (or coenzyme Q) is naturally produced by the body and diminishes with age.
It’s regarded as one of the best bio-markers of aging due to how well the levels of ubiquinone correspond with a person’s biological age. Supplementation aids in weight loss and aggressively helps the body in skin repair and maintenance of the integrity of skin cells.
