Regardless of age all women should protect their skin daily.
Our skin is one of the most sensitive parts of our body and certain damage from smoking, the sun and other free radicals in the air can suck your skins vitality and leave it totally parched.
Even if your skin looks perfectly smooth and radiant you should NOT forget to pamper it and protect it.
Damage caused to your skin goes deep beyond the eye can see.
Let’s start with the obvious culprit;Â the sun.
Beautiful, warm sunny days at the beach are popular to many of us. I’m sure most if not all of you know SPF is a must for a day at the beach, but it’s actually recommended to use it daily. All 365 days. Even if the suns rays are subtle they can still cause damage to your skin.
There’s even moisturizers with SPF already in them a couple of my favorites are; clinique superdefense SPF 25 age defense moisturizer ($42.50 clinique.com) and Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer, SPF 30 ($17.99 available at drugstores).
Excessive smoking and drinking will also affect your skin.
( not to mention the rest of your organs). So if you make a habit of boozing and smoking, STOP!!!
Smoking and drinking constricts blood vessels which affects your blood and oxygen flow. It also makes skin loose it’s elasticity and will make it look dry and dull, and will cause premature wrinkles to appear. You’ve been warned!
Avoid eating processed and sugary / salty foods.
They don’t just bloat you but they also break down collagen which is vital to prevent saggy skin.
Ditch those foods for antioxidant-rich foods I.e. Nuts, berries, veggies.
This will knock out two at once, 1.prevent stress 2. Prevent wrinkles.
Working out regularly will help you feel better inside and out, and help keep skin firm and glowing.
Drinking the recommended amount of water ( which varies depending on weight, physical activity and surroundings..) will keep your skin healthy and seriously help stop the aging process. Water flushes out all your toxins and keeps you hydrated.
Hydrated skin is healthy skin.
Get your recommended beauty sleep.
Sleep helps your body recharge as well as prevent any illnesses. Maintaining a constant sleep pattern will help your skin looking healthy inside and fresh on the surface.
