Now that I have just had a recent birthday bringing me into my mid-50’s, it’s time to think about anti-aging products for my skin.
While we all want flawless, young, and beautiful skin forever, we can’t stop aging. And while aging is a natural part of life, no one wants a plethora of wrinkles, fine lines, or laugh lines. The key is not looking prematurely old. While aging some changes are inevitable, self-care and healthy lifestyle choices help to slow down Father Time’s effect on our skin.
Start with anti-aging products. Companies like Timeless Skin Care provide natural skin care products that give your skin the boost it needs. Sunscreen is also a must at all ages, but especially as we get older.
Wear and Eat Your Sunscreen
Consider sunscreen as mandatory whenever you step outside and use broad spectrum SPF to protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays. You can eat your sunscreen too! There are foods known to increase lycopene – skin’s own SPF.
Lycopene has been linked to health benefits extending from heart health to guard against sunburns and certain types of cancers. Integrate antioxidants into your eating habits. Antioxidants found in tomatoes, watermelons, pink grapefruit, and other red fruit or vegetables are good to eat, and due to the presence of lycopene, they are beneficial for healthy skin.
Use a Gentle Face Wash
Wash your face two-three times a day but make sure to use a gentle face wash. Also, if you have sensitive skin, finding the right face wash is key. Try a mild and gentle face wash with essential fatty acids to hydrate your skin. Green tea also fights against damage from the compounds that attack your skin cells.
Always use a light hand while cleansing your face with gentle and circular motions. Make sure to exfoliate weekly, and never use harsh scrubs or aggressive scrubbing as it could irritate your sensitive skin and quicken aging.
Integrate Exercise in your Routine
Exercise is as good as for your skin as it is for your body health. Exercise helps to increase blood circulation which means more oxygen and nutrients are transported to the skin cells and the extra toxins and waste products are carried out from your body and skin. A fit body helps to get healthy skin.
Water plays an eminent role when it comes to skin or body. Drinking an adequate amount of water all day can help you keep your skin healthy and young.
Sugar is not only bad for your teeth, but also for your body. Sugar increases the process of glycation which makes your skin age quicker. Focus on a balanced diet with lots of protein and vegetables. Switch sugar-loaded snacks for fruit and vegetables that have anti-aging antioxidants such as watermelon, dark berries, avocados, and green juices.
Moisturize with Vitamin E
Dry skin is more prone to cracking, damage, and wrinkles. By helping encourage natural oil production, Vitamin E can help promote the production of healthy skin cells. Timeless Skin Care pairs their Vitamin E with Vitamin C and ferulic acid in their Vitamin C+E Ferulic Acid Serum.
This serum not only helps your skin regain a healthy oil balance but also protects your skin from environmental assault by free radicals. Meanwhile, Vitamin C reduces inflammation and promotes healing of damaged skin.
Experience the Power of Matrixyl 3000
A powerful wrinkle-fighting ingredient, Matrixyl 3000 helps promote the production of two important building blocks in skin-collagen and elastin. By promoting the production of these two important compounds, Matrixyl 3000 helps ensure that skin is restored to a more resilient state.
Hydrate with Hyaluronic Acid
Heralded as a miracle cure for aging, hyaluronic acid is a powerful hydrating agent, which helps skin remain supple and taunt. The best hyaluronic acid serum combines hyaluronic acid with the powerful wrinkle fighting technology of Matrixyl 3000 and the restorative properties of Vitamin C.
Although there are many things you can do for your skin to keep it healthy just try these simple tips. Scientists are still gathering conclusive evidence about which wrinkle fighting ingredient is best. Still, there are plenty of stories from individuals who have seen amazing results with anti-aging serums. Also, before using any new product for your skin, do a skin patch test. If you see irritation or redness, discontinue the product and consult your dermatologist.
