How To Fight Aging At Any Decade
Posted October 01, 2013 in Healthy Lifestyle
In today’s world, there are many skincare products and serums that promise to restore youth and protect you from aging. Even though a few of these products may live up to the hype, the majority of these “remedies” do little to turn back the clock. However, there are some simple tips that can help any person fight aging, no matter how old they are.
Eat Fruits & Vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are great for the body and the skin for many reasons, but the biggest reason is because they contain a very high amount of antioxidants. Antioxidants fight against free radicals, which are correlated with the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Aim to consume two to three servings per day of each to attain the maximum benefits.
Limit Smoking and Alcohol Consumption
Smoking and drinking on a regular basis can drastically accelerate the aging process. Aside from basic factors like dehydrating your skin and robbing your body of essential nutrients, both alcohol and cigarettes contain acetaldehyde, which reduces the firmness and elasticity of the skin by breaking down collagen fibers.
Get Plenty of Rest
The skin repairs itself when you sleep by replacing dead skin cells with healthy new ones. Our skin also tends to be more absorbent at night when minimal light is present, which allows lotions and age defying creams to be absorbed better into the body.
Lower Your Stress
Everyone knows that stress can have a negative effect on emotional well-being. However, some people often overlook the effects that stress can have on their skin, such as acne, discoloration, and eventually the onset of wrinkles. There are hundreds of techniques that can keep your stress to a minimum, but some of the most basic ways include: deep breathing, staying organized, and exercising.
Although you can follow these tips on your own to help maintain a radiant appearance, cosmetic surgery can restore a youthful look and provide magnificent results.
