But aging is a simple fact of life, and one we can’t avoid – but how we age, and how our skin looks is something we can actively attack with our diet, lifestyle and skincare.
It may be that you considered skincare products and found out after time that it does not work as anticipated – and now you’re looking for something with more concrete results? Well, you’re not alone in your quest. Wrinkle reduction* does not have to equal invasive procedures – in fact; it’s much easier than what most people think
Let’s consider the most popular alternatives to a wrinkle free, beautiful skin
The benefits of eating oils such as Olive, Flax Seed and Coconut cannot be underestimated. Rich in antioxidants and skin loving minerals, they should be an essential part of your diet. However, these oils can also be used topically as part of a thorough skincare regimen.
Coconut or Flax Seed oils can be used as a rich, creamy facial cleanser to remove* makeup, dirt and grime, while Olive Oil rich in Vitamin E can be applied as a moisturizer to fight the signs of aging naturally. The Oil Cleansing method is becoming increasingly popular among those people who want to take a natural approach to anti-ageing.
2. Cutting Down On Sun Exposure, Or Doing So With Better Timing:
While exposing the skin to the sun for prolonged periods is bad, we need a certain amount of sunlight to keep our skin healthy and supple. It is important not to take too much sun between 10:00 and 16:00, particularly in summer when the sun is fierce. Clinicians recommend 20 minutes’ exposure every day, to give us the right amount of Vitamin D to keep our bodies healthy. After this time, cover any exposed skin with a superior SPF. If you live in a relatively stable climate, SPF 30 will give you strong protection. If you live in an especially hot climate, SPF 50 may be needed to block out the sun’s rays. SPF protection is very important if you’re going to be out and about for long periods of time as the sun is one of the elements that can dry out the skin and age it.
3. Staying Hydrated
Drinking water, and other non-caffeinated, non-soda based beverages – such as herbal teas will keep your kidneys and liver flushed and mean that you can expel toxins from your body much more quickly. This will keep your skin healthy, glowing and plump and help to stop wrinkles in their tracks!
4. Consuming The Right Vitamins And Minerals
Essentials minerals such as zinc and copper can be or real benefit in the war against aging. Zinc, found in shellfish, seafood, read meat and green leafy vegetables can really help counteract too much oil production, and help heal breakouts and acne. The mineral copper can’t really be taken as a supplement, but creams containing copper peptides can help ward off sun sensitivity, photo damage and prevent wrinkles from forming.
