I touched my daughter’s forehead last night and realized it was so soft and smooth. I remember having skin like that, but over time I’ve lost moisture and elasticity. If this is happening to you as well, use the below tips and tricks to help your skin regain it’s youthful resiliency.
If you smoke, you should try to quit smoking. Smoking damages your skin. Your skin is a very large organ and just like the rest of your body, it needs to breathe. Smoking could make your skin take on a greyish quality. No one wants skin that looks dull and lifeless. Stop smoking and let it get the clean air that it needs to look healthy and alive.
In order to get that glowing skin that everyone wants, make sure you drink plenty of water each day. The recommended amount to drink is eight glasses. The water that you drink keeps your skin hydrated and supple and allows any toxins that might build up to be washed away instead.
Exfoliating regularly is a very important part of maintaining healthy, gorgeous skin. Exfoliating removes dead and dry skin and allows living layers under it to breathe. Look for exfoliating products that contain honey, as this is very good for your skin. While exfoliating is important, be careful not to do it too often and irritate your skin.
To improve aging skin, cut down on your sugar intake. Too much sugar in the blood stream over a long period of time can cause glycation, which is when sugars damage the proteins that make up collagen, an essential component of skin and other parts of your body. Damage to collagen increases wrinkles and dryness and decreases skin elasticity, so get rid of the sugar as an investment toward a beautiful future.
If you want to further protect your skin from the sun, try eating pomegranates or taking them in pill form. They work to increase your natural sun resistance, allowing you to tan rather than burn. These are natural pills that will cause no more harm than eating a piece of fruit. They will make your skin healthy and looking great.
To get fully moisturized, totally healthy skin, be certain to warm your moisturizing products before using them. When it’s warm, it’s absorbed faster and better via the skin, boosting its effectiveness. It only takes a few seconds in the microwave to heat the moisturizer up. You can also put this container in warm water.
The sun can cause you to age much quicker. If you avoid the sun during bright hours of the day, you can keep your skin looking healthier longer. By simply avoiding the sun from 10 AM to 4 PM you can prevent your skin from getting excess damage from the sun.
After using all of these methods my skin should return to being soft, beautiful, and taut. Hopefully, yours will too, so let’s set up our own skin care regimens and give it a go! The only way to keep aging at bay is to go the extra mile to take good care of your skin!
