Tips for Younger Looking Skin

Sep 23, 2007
We all want younger looking skin. Although aging is inevitable, people are always looking for ways to slow down that process. Lifestyle choices can actually speed up the aging process, resulting in a condition known as premature aging. This causes wrinkles at a young age. Although anti-aging creams can help minimize the effects of aging, it's best to try to prevent the damage as well. There are things you can do to help slow down the aging process.

Avoid the sun whenever possible. The ultraviolet rays of the sun are very damaging to the skin. They cause premature aging and wrinkles. Use a sunscreen to protect your skin when you are spending time in the sun. Be sure to apply the sunscreen to the face, neck, arms, hands and any other exposed areas. Wear a hat to give your face even more protection. Avoid being outside in the middle of the day when the sun's rays are strongest.

If you smoke, this is another incentive to quit. Most of the media coverage is focused on the health benefits of quitting, which are important. There are also benefits for your skin if you kick the habit. Smoking increases the production of free radicals, which contribute to the aging process. This accelerates the aging process and causes more wrinkles in the skin. Talk to your doctor about ways to quit. There are prescription medications that may help as well as over the counter remedies. Your doctor can help you find the best method for you.

Eat a healthy diet rich in antioxidants. These include foods rich in vitamins A, C and E. Antioxidants help scavenge free radicals. A combination of these vitamins is most effective. A diet lower in fat is best for your skin. Drink plenty of water to hydrate the skin from the inside out. You should try to drink at least eight glasses each day.

Exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. It is not only good for your body, but your skin as well. Regular exercise improves circulation. This keeps your body in shape and helps increase the circulation to the muscles and skin of the face. You might want to ask your doctor before beginning an exercise routine.

To be sure you will stick with it, choose a type of exercise that you enjoy. If you like it, you are more likely to be motivated to exercise. Workout with a friend to help you both stay motivated. Start off slow and add time as you get in better shape. You should try to work up to thirty minutes of cardiovascular exercise a day. Exercise three or four days a week for best results.

Good skin care is essential to younger looking skin. Choose high quality skin care products and anti aging creams. Wash your face every day with a gentle cleanser. Use a moisturizer that is made for your skin type. Use anti wrinkle creams that contain antioxidants and other high quality ingredients. Read reviews of anti aging creams to choose the products that are best for your skin type. In these ways you will increase the look and feel of your skin.
