Don't you deserve to have the best skin possible? Of course you do. I frequently have clients tell me...Barb, I have spent many hours in the sun, is there anything the product line you distribute do for me? My answer is...yes, there is a lot it will do for your skin....but unfortunately, there is no product out there that can completely erase the countless hours soaking in the sun without the SPF. But, with this said...there are excellent preventative measures that you can take that will help you slow down the aging process.
Below are some skin care and rejuvenation tips to ensure that your skin remains healthy, vibrant, and wrinkle-free for longer that will, without a doubt, slow down skin aging.
Our skin starts showing the signs of aging even as early as our 20s. One can expect to start seeing fine lines, uneven skin texture, and dullness. So truly, one needs to start taking care of their skin from early on. You see, what is happening is our body's skin cellular renewal process is beginning to slow down and what this means is that the dead skin cells are as not as easily discarded, plus there are external factors are starting to have a greater impact, leaving our skin slightly duller.
Skin Care Tips For Your 20s
1. Avoid sunlight or Cover-Up
Up to 80 percent of skin aging is directly related to sun exposure. Penetrating UVA rays damage collagen fibers and elastin coils in your skin.
2. If you are a Smoker - Quit- Quit Now
Smoking inhibits oxygen from getting to the outer layer of your skin, which causes premature aging. Additionally, the motion of smoking over a long period of time can cause fine lines around your mouth. This is not an appealing look!
3. Start a daily skin care program
You should cleanse, moisturize and use SPF or SPF equivalent on a daily basis. It is also important to exfoliate 2-3 times a week to promote skin cellular renewal on a regular basis.
Skin Care Tips For Your 30 - And Beyond
By the time you reach your 30s, skin cell turnover has slowed down even more. Environmental factors pollution, smoke, and sunlight are at this point causing damage so that in the dermis, collagen fibers are beginning to loosen. This causes the skin to start losing its tone and develop fine lines and wrinkles. When we smile, subcutaneous fat forms ridges and refuse to bounce back as readily as it once did. Our first wrinkles may start to appear. Here are some additional skin care tips for keeping your skin healthy and slowing the aging process early:
1. Have a Daily Skin Care Routine
At this stage in life, you should have a daily skin care routine for your skin.
2. Skin Rejuvenation is Essential
Incorporate a cosmeceutical skin rejuvenation program into your daily skin care routine. What is key here is that you need to use products that will help you skin increase it's cellular renewal process, thereby getting rid of dead skin cells and promoting skin rejuvenation.
3. A balanced Diet is Key
Your diet should consist of fresh fruits, vegetables, grains and fish, as they are high in antioxidants and Vitamins A, B, C, and E. These vitamins counteract free radicals which help the skin repair itself and produce enzymes which stabilize collagen production and retain the skin's moisture content. I know, I know..these are things our Mothers told tool and she was right!
4. Acohol Intake should be in Moderation
Alcohol actually deprives your skin of essential nutrients and may cause your facial blood vessels to become dilated. This can lead to permanent red "spider veins" on women's cheeks and across the nose on men. Not a pretty site.
5. Remember to .... Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!
I can't emphasis this enough. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. This is the best way to retain the skin's water, thus keeping skin feeling soft and looking supple.
