Women and girls both have become so afraid of aging that going for a botox has become almost as usual as going for a coffee, as early as in the second or barely the third decade of one’s life. Personally, I believe this is exaggerating and too early and that is better to introduce several steps into your daily routine to stop the aging process.
Sun protection cream is a must
Perhaps up to this moment, you thought that sun protection creams are designed only for a beach, but the truth is we are constantly exposed to the harmful sun rays, regardless of the temperature or a time of the year, it’s all recorded in the “memory” of our skin. Due to this, most of day creams and powders contain sun protection so they too can suffice, at least for some time. A special attention, though, should be given to the area around eyes since the skin is very sensitive and thin in these areas, and what’s more, using sun protection cream is one more way to prevent wrinkles.
Healthy diet to stop the aging
In order to stay vital, skin needs constant care, from the outside as well from the inside out. Healthy and well-balanced nutrition are the key to a youthful and vibrant look. Apart from this, hydration plays a huge role so you mustn’t forget to drink, water being the best option. When it comes to a diet, as much fresh food as possible – the better, and of course, seasonal. Foods rich in vitamin C especially cannot be stressed enough when youthful appearance is in question. If you didn’t know, vitamin C participates in collagen synthesis, a protein which keeps our skin youthful.
Exfoliation is a treatment which implies removal of the dead skin cells, helping the skin cells to regenerate much faster. There are physical and chemical exfoliators. Physical exfoliators are products which contain rough materials and by rubbing the particles (of these rough materials) dead skin cells are being removed. Special brushes are used to perform this process. Chemical exfoliating, on the other hand, uses chemicals such as hydroxyl acids for obtaining a newer skin.
If you have problems with acne, hyperpigmentation or dry skin, serums could be very helpful for treating any of these issues. Serums enriched with retinol and vitamin C will help treat hyperpigmentation and reduce the visibility of wrinkles.
A good-quality sleep is very important for a fresh, rested and youthful look, almost as equally as the sleeping position is. Namely, sleeping on the belly may cause your face to wrinkle, unlike sleeping on the back which would be the best choice in this case.
