Aging skin is almost everyone’s worst nightmare. Many fear that they will reach a point where they can never be “beautiful” again. Don’t let this drag you down because you always have options! Here are 7 excellent ways to stop aging skin before it’s too late.
It’s so easy to ignore this one. Snooze button please! But the effects of exercise on not only skin, but your entire body and mind are profound and unmatched. There is no pill or edible substitute for exercise.
One study found that adults who exercised regularly essentially “defied the aging process, having the immunity, muscle mass, and cholesterol levels of a young person.” That’s enough to convince us! Try to get an exercise routine going as soon as you can, even if you start with a 10-minute walk around the block.
The effects of stress on aging skin have been studied and documented over and over again. Here’s what the science says—each chromosome in your body has a DNA library of sorts with protective caps on either end known as telomeres. As they become shorter, their integrity weakens, which causes the cells to age faster and die younger. At a certain point of shrinkage, cells are no longer able to divide further. This shrinking process is known as “replicative senescence.” This is a necessary process for eliminating old, used up cells, but it also contributes to premature aging and shorter life spans.
There are many ways to manage stress, but one of the most basic and effective habits that can help with stress is meditation. There are also many different types of meditation, but if you learn to ground yourself in the here and now, you can learn to melt stress away.
Use Effective Anti Aging Products
Some anti aging products have a significant effect on your skin aging process. There has been some cutting-edge innovation using organic stem cells which have proven to stimulate skin cells and rejuvenate skin, making it defy aging and promote your skin’s natural glow.
You don’t have to take on the aging process alone. If you do find products you can trust to deliver anti aging effects, you can stop aging skin before it’s too late.
Cut Back on Sugar
It feels like sugar is in everything now, yet it’s incredibly damaging to the skin. We aren’t referring to only pure cane sugar, but rather sugar in all its forms, including corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, and all those things that taste too sweet to be healthy.
Sugar is actually Collagen’s worst natural enemy. The extra sugars in your body attach themselves to collagen cells, ultimately causing them to break down and die. This is a warm invitation for wrinkles, fine lines, and acne.
Drink a Lot of Water
Although this might seem obvious to some, it’s a habit that many people unconsciously forget to go through with. It’s important to remember that the skin is an organ. Just like any other organ, it’s made up of cells. Skin cells, just like all other cells in the body, are made up of water.
Dehydration will often manifest itself as dry, flaky skin. It’s all connected, and our skin is not some separate thing that doesn’t require hydration just as much as the rest of our organs. So if not for your health, at least fill up on water so you can stop aging skin!
Slather on the Sunscreen
The sun bombards our skin with UVA and UVB rays that damage the skin and increase the chances of getting skin cancer. Luckily, we have something called sunscreen!
If you feel overwhelmed by all the options out there for sunscreen, know that you want it to be a minimum of SPF 30. Also, remember to apply it every 2 hours. While it might seem like using SPF 100 means you can go longer without re-applying it, all sunscreen pretty much loses effectiveness by about the third hour.
