6 Ways You Can Do to Slow Down the Signs of Aging
Our skin is more prone to damage and premature aging due to an unhealthy lifestyle, increasingly intense UV rays, and all-around pollution.
Though you may not see it right away, your skin begins to age in your 20s, then it continues to age in your 30s as your skin gradually loses collagen.
Most people, on the other hand, wait until they notice visible signs of aging, such as fine lines, age spots and wrinkles, before reaching for an anti-aging treatment.
This is the natural aging process. One thing that we cannot change.
But hey, here’s the good news. Starting an anti-aging routine does not have to be difficult or intimidating if you know what to look for in a skincare product and commit to using them consistently. You can also follow these 6 simple ways that you can do to slow down the signs of aging.
1. PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM THE SUN
Sun protection is vital whether you're at the beach or doing errands. Cover up with sun-protective clothing — such as a lightweight, UV protective sunglasses, long-sleeved shirt, slacks, and a wide-brimmed hat.
Use sunscreen every day, even if it's cloudy. Apply at least 15 to 30 minutes before going outside and then re-apply every after two hours.
As much as possible, avoid the sun during peak hours. The UV rays that causes sunburn are at peak between 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
2. REGULAR EXERCISE
Researchers found out that staying active keeps the body look young and healthy. According to research, persons who exercise on a daily basis are able to slow down the aging process.
Exercising can also increase blood circulation and boost your immune system. As a result, the skin may look more youthful.
3. GENTLY CLEANSE YOUR SKIN
Scrubbing your skin can cause irritation. Irritating your skin speeds up the aging process.
By gently washing your skin, it removes pollutants, makeup, and other impurities from your skin without causing irritation.
4. AVOID SMOKE AND DRINKING ALCOHOL
Smoking and heavy drinking are linked to visible signs of physical aging as it dehydrates you. Dehydration depletes the moisture and elasticity of your skin, resulting in dryness, sagginess, and wrinkles.
Cigarettes dry out your skin even more, making it wrinkled and pale, while also increasing your risk of skin cancer. Your skin ages fourteen years for every decade you smoke, not only on your face, but all over your body.
5. EAT A HEALTHY AND WELL-BALANCED DIET
Nutrition is associated with skin health. Eating the right nutrients can improve the production of collagen, a compound crucial for the elasticity of the skin and health of skin cells.
Eating habits and foods can repair damaged skin and can also cause damage to the skin.
According to research, food containing refined carbohydrates and lots of sugar can accelerate aging.
6. MOISTURIZE YOUR SKIN EVERY DAY
Moisturizers soften the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It acts like drinking of water for your face as it nourish and hydrate your skin.
