It is a known fact that women after the age of 30 have much to worry about when it comes to their skin. The regenerative power of the skin especially on their face diminishes significantly, leading to physical manifestations such as skin patches, discoloration, pigmentation, wrinkles and lines which start appearing by the sides of their eyes, on the corner of their mouth and on the forehead.
Although there are countless cosmetic and pharmaceutical products which promise to bring back one’s youthful appearance, an unchangeable fact of the matter is that one cannot stop the process of skin aging. However, with the help of a few simple natural products and following a natural skin care routine should be enough to stop your skin from showing the signs of aging as prominently as they would otherwise.
What you should eat
Anything that is fresh is worth eating if you are looking for a healthy and glowing skin. Although you will not be able to stop wrinkles and age lines from appearing completely, you can reduce their incidence considerably by eating fresh fruits, milk and milk products, fresh green vegetables, fish that is high in omega 3 fatty acids and staying away from anything oily and containing high amounts of saturated fat.
Among the things you should stay away from include alcohol which dehydrates skin; dehydration is one of the most common reasons for premature age lines to appear. Drink as much water as you can through the day to keep yourself hydrated and quit habits such as smoking as this inhibits blood circulation: another reason for wrinkles to appear.
Importance of working out
Work out everyday to keep the adrenaline rushing and the blood circulating to accelerate skin cell regeneration. Sweat helps in getting rid of the toxins from your body in a natural manner.
Sleeping pattern and the effects of stress
Sleep at least seven hours a day to regain your daily energy. You must take time off through the day to relieve yourself of every stress that is currently bothering you. Smile every now and then to keep yourself from slipping into a depression which can add to skin aging.
