3 Tips To Preserve Your Complexion Through Healthy Aging

Aug 17, 2007
If there is one part of our body that we always want to look young and fresh, it is our skin. Regardless of whether you are interested in healthy aging, you probably have spent thousands of dollars on skin care just to give your skin an extra day or two of longevity and youth. This is normal, after all, a wrinkled, lined complexion is one of the most noticeable signs of aging.

Luckily, there are certain healthy aging steps you can take to delay the most dramatic changes that occur to complexion as you age. This article will show you the three best ways to take care of your skin to help you stay young and beautiful long into your golden years.

Without healthy aging, the onset of old age hits complexion the hardest. Firstly, expect to see more and more lines and wrinkles as you grow older. Healthy aging can delay the process, but it is important to be prepared to deal with it sooner or later.

Your skin will start becoming less elastic, which in the long run will lead to it looking saggy and droopy in places. Your oil glands will grow less efficient with time, leading to much drier, thinner complexion. In short, without healthy aging, the fate that awaits your skin in the future is not pretty.

Luckily, there are ways to delay or even alleviate some of these problems. Using a good moisturizer is essential for healthy aging as your complexion will not be as dry and inelastic. A good moisturizer will also help you shed dead skin much faster and more systematically, resulting in complexion that looks much smoother. Of course, no moisturizer will help you delay skin aging forever, however, it is one of the key components of ensuring healthy aging of your skin.

Second, although you may like to spend time lounging on your favorite beach under the scorching glare of the sun, it is important to remember that sun exposure will also lead to drier skin.

Therefore, if you are serious about healthy aging, it is recommended not to spend too much time in the sun. If you absolutely have to go out on a sunny day, wear a good sunscreen as well as sun-reflective clothing. This might take some fun out of walking down the street and looking your absolute best when you were 20, but you will not regret doing that when you are 50.

Third, no matter how relaxing and alluring the prospect of having a long, hot bath may sound, studies show that spending too much time soaking in hot water can also lead to a drier complexion. Sadly, healthy aging for your skin and hour-long baths are not compatible.

It is important to moderate the amount of time you spend bathing and when you are relaxing in a tub, it is recommended that you avoid burning hot water and soak in warm water instead. It may not feel as good, but your skin will not suffer as much.

Furthermore, when you get out of the bath, try not to scrub yourself to death with a towel instead, gently rub or pat your skin and apply moisturizer. You will bask in the glow of freshly scrubbed moisturized skin, while your peers may start to look a bit like the towels they are using to dry themselves.

As you can see, there are many steps you can take to ensure healthy aging of your skin. It is important to keep in mind that time and age will catch up with you whether you like it or not as such, it is important to accept the fact, that one day, your skin will start showing signs of age. At one point, it is important to be able to accept your senior age and embrace it as a new, equally exciting part of your life.
