Aging is a fact of life.
As we age, our skin ages and sometimes loses the vibrancy it once had, due to factors like sun damage, poor eating habits, dehydration, etc. But all is not lost. There are things you can do to maintain youthful looking skin.
True, there are a lot of skin care products on the market, and you can spend a lot of money on them, even go so far as to have procedures like collagen injections or a facelift, but why go through all of the expense and headache when there are easier, less expensive ways to go about it?
After all, no one can do anything about the aging process, and all of the beauty products in the world can’t stop it, so why not go for some ideas that work, and they are healthy to boot.
Good skin care happens on the inside of our body as well as the outside of our body. Examine your lifestyle and environment, and your overall routine.
Do you get enough rest, exercise, and pay attention to your diet? These things all have an effect on your skin.
Take sleep, for example. The average person needs about 7 or 8 hours of sleep each night. That sounds like a lot of sleep in today’s 24/7 world, but it’s what our bodies need. We need to recharge our battery—our mind and our body—with enough sleep. Or, just like a cellphone that isn’t charged, we don’t work properly.
What does sleep have to do with skin care? Rest reduces stress and promotes energy, and when we feel good, it affects all of us. While you sleep, you can wear a moisturizer. Natural is best, to avoid exposing your skin to harsh chemicals, including alcohol, that can actually dry out your skin.
Drink water to keep your skin hydrated. About 8 glasses a day is recommended. You may not like the taste of water, or may think 8 glasses is too much. But this is what doctors and skin care specialists recommend. Add fruit powders to your water to enhance the flavor.
You will want to use a good skin cream. Do you have dry skin? Oily skin? Combination skin? Here at Moisturize Creams, you’ll find all of the product descriptions and reviews you need to choose the right one for your skin type.
Use a sunscreen to block out harmful rays. The sun is good for us in moderate doses, but too much can cause skin damage, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. Again, avoid sunscreens that contain alcohol, since this dehydrates the skin.
Drink liquids and eat foods that contain antioxidants, because they maintain the collagen and elastin in our skin, the things that keep our skin supple and firm.
