Here Are Some Things That Can Keep Your Skin Looking Younger.
See how many of these suggestions you can incorporate into your skin care regime and you will have beautiful skin at any age.
Limit Long Sun Exposure
You will need to make sure you dont get very much sun on your face. Dont hang out in the sun for too long because a sun burn causes skin damage and may age your face more quickly. During the summer take addition care to keep your face protected and if you have to be outdoors during the sunniest part of the day use only organic sunscreen. You may find a great looking hat that will help with protecting your face too.
Remember that sunlight is not something to be avoided altogether. You need sunlight in order to stay healthy that all important vitamin D. The key is to gradually build up your resistance to the sun by going out for short periods at the beginning of the season, perhaps 10 minutes at a time to start, and always avoid getting burned.
Avoid “Yo-Yo” Dieting
Losing weight and then gaining the weight back and then getting on a healthy eating plan only to find yourself up 20 pounds again is one of the worst ways to treat your skin. The yo-yo dieting is not only detrimental to your skin but your body suffers from this behavior too. Remaining overweight will also contribute to older looking skin, as excess fat can accumulate around your chin, neck and cheeks as you age. Maintaining your ideal weight will keep your skin firm. Getting exercise daily will not only help you stay fit but your skin will appreciate the extra oxygen.
Certified organic virgin coconut oil is a must and you can use it the way you would any lotion. You will need to choose a high-quality organic coconut oil that is free of chemicals and is not bleached or hydrogenated. Coconut oil will not only bring temporary relief to the skin, but it will aid in healing and repairing, unlike most lotions. The skin will become more evenly textured with a healthy “shine.” Its an ideal way to rejuvenate skin. Not only does it prevent the formation of damaging free radicals and protect against them, but also it can help to keep the skin from developing liver spots and other blemishes caused by aging and overexposure to sunlight.
The coconut oil can help bring back a youthful appearance to your skin by removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, making the skin smoother. Coconut oil helps to prevent sagging and wrinkles because it keeps the skins connective tissues strong and supple. And the coconut oil will penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and strengthen the underlying tissues. In some cases it might even restore damaged or diseased skin.
Take Plenty of Omega-3
Most people are seriously deficient of Omega-3 fatty acids. They are essential to healthy skin so making sure you get enough omega-3 in your diet by taking fish oil or cod liver oil regularly will help to keep your skin looking vibrant, young and healthy.
Omega-3 fats help to normalize skin lipids and prevent dehydration. This will keep skin cells strong and full of moisture, which can help to decrease the appearance of fine lines. There are more reasons why your body needs Omega 3 fats too. Fatty acid deficiency can manifest in a variety of ways, but skin problems such as eczema, thick patches of skin, and cracked heels are common. Plus, omega-3 fats may have an anti-inflammatory effect that can help to calm irritated skin, giving you a clear, smooth complexion.
Relax Your Face Muscles
They say it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile. If you frown (or smile broadly) often, over time lines will form where the muscles tend to contract. Try to become aware of any tense muscles in your face and make a conscious effort to relax them.
Try not to sleep with your facial skin being pulled or stretched. Sleeping on your face may cause wrinkles to appear over time because of the continuous pressure. Try sleeping on your back or changing your sleeping positions from time to time so that you dont create permanent creases in your skin. A satin or silk pillow case will help with this also.
Avoid Cigarette Smoke
You may have seen smokers who have smoked for many years and it is easy to tell who they are. Cigarette smoke exposes a person to damaging free radicals that will accelerate the aging process by damaging the microcapillaries in the skin. This limits the skins ability to absorb nutrients, which accelerates wrinkling and aging.
Eat plenty of antioxidants found in fresh vegetables and fruit like organic blueberries. This can help to fight free-radical damage and will naturally promote healthy, young-looking skin. Micronutrients and antioxidants will limit damage from the sun and accelerate the skins repair processes.
