We are powerless to stop the process of aging. This does not mean, however, that we have to accept that aging means looking older. On the contrary; by using anti-aging creams in tandem with a few simple, health-preserving practices, you can keep your skin looking great and maintain your physical health for many years to come.
If a person’s skin does not have enough collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, it will age prematurely. Sunlight, with its ultraviolet waves, is but one of many free radicals that increase this damage every single day. Therefore, to at once aid your skin in the fight against skin aging and assist in its restoration and preservation, you must seek out an anti-aging cream that contains the correct quantities of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Furthermore, while using the best quality anti-aging cream available, you should adhere to the following routines to protect your skin and your immune system from the ravages of free radicals and the aging process.
Make friends with the shade! If you have a tan, you have damaged skin; it’s that simple. We want to believe that a golden tan is a sign of vivaciousness, but this is incorrect. A tan is your skin’s reaction to sun damage: it is trying to heal itself. Lying out in the sun or spending time in a tanning bed is an effort on your part to age your own skin! In tandem, your exposure may lead to skin cancer. While you are unable to avoid the sun entirely, still-in order to preserve your youthful appearance-you must apply a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 to any areas that face long-term exposure.
Your skin is an organ, so it should come as no surprise that practices which benefit your internal health will improve the appearance of your skin. So to keep your skin looking great, drink at least eight glasses of water a day (eight ounces each). Eat healthy, antioxidant and vitamin-rich foods. Take a multivitamin every day. Exercise on a regular basis: aerobic activity is great for your heart, your immune system, and especially your skin!
Do not smoke! Cigarettes and/or cigars (“cancer-sticks”) are filled with carcinogens-toxins that exacerbate the aging process and wreak havoc on your heart, your immune system, and your skin. Some forms of alcohol are, however, actually good for you. Drink a glass of red wine and, as scientific examinations have demonstrated, you will imbibe a large amount of healthy antioxidants. Even so, avoid abusing alcohol.
Consider getting a facial massage on a regular basis. Your face, which is usually the first part of your body that others see, and is the most obvious place where aging is evident, has hundreds of muscles on it. Massaging these muscles relaxes and strengthens them, helping to prevent your face from sagging or otherwise appearing older than it should.
It is imperative that you discover and use the best anti-aging cream possible. Such a cream will contain the perfect balance of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, allowing your face to experience a perfected balance of all three. Be sure that the anti-aging cream also is comprised of antioxidants; these are vital for their toxin-eradicating properties.
Natural, organically-produced anti-aging creams are better than chemical-heavy ones. The latter have been known to ineffective, or even to cause inflammation, redness, or drying of the skin. Fight aging and nourish your skin by using a natural anti-aging cream that penetrates all seven layers of skin, restoring it at the cellular level while stimulating its restoration.
