How to keep your skin looking youthful
Lifestyle By Elena Boaghi | September 21, 2016
The older we get, the more visible those “fine lines” get – obviously. And while we all subscribe to the illusion that we’ll stay young forever by going through cosmetic procedures, the truth is – nothing can defy nature. However, what we can do is keep our skin looking youthful for a tad longer and keep it healthy and glowing in the process.
Change your lifestyle
When we’re young, we often don’t think about the consequences our actions on our future health and skin. If you’ve been reckless in your youth, you’re probably having your fair share of the fine-lines, dark spots and eczema demons. Alcohol, smoking, poor diet, lack of exercise, stress – all these are factors lead to a long-term lack of balance in our body. Luckily, it’s still not too late to turn things around; replace your unhealthy choices with healthy ones and you’ll see an immediate change. Your skin will go from brownish and dull to glowing and elastic, which will do wonders for your overall self-confidence and looks.
Regulate your diet
Say goodbye to all things processed, deep friend, pre-packed and sparkly (sodas, sparkling water, etc). Instead, include vegetables, fruits, grilled and cooked nutrients in your diet to kick start your metabolism and release toxins you’ve been storing for a while now. Drink a lot of water as it helps purify the skin, unclog pores and works on promoting fast digestion.
Turn to natural/organic products
With so many products out there, it’s hard to pick the one brand that will agree with your skin, isn’t it? Luckily for us, the popularity of organic, mineral and natural products has skyrocketed in the past few years. They shed light on the importance of products which are not chemically processed and therefore, not harmful for the skin.
A brand that fits your skin type well should include quality essentials. This goes for moisturizes and especially for eye creams. A high quality eye cream is an important staple in skincare for everyone who wants to take the years off of their face. The eye area is delicate and very sensitive, so be careful when making your choice.
If you’ve been slouching around, it’s time you grabbed your workout gear and hit the treadmill. Exercising is a powerful method to not only keep yourself healthy and fit but as well promote toxin release through the skin (by sweating) which is both purifying and rejuvenating it. On top of it, the fitter your figure the tighter your skin will be which will make you look way younger than you actually are.
Consider surgical intervention
If you are really unhappy about the way your skin looks, consider scheduling an appointment with a plastic surgeon. As experts, they will provide you with all the information you may need, analyze the state of your skin and advise on any further steps. That way you’ll know what to work with and whether to actually follow through with a procedure.
