How To Protect Our Skin From Premature Ageing
One thing that we cannot change is the natural aging process.
It plays a key role.
With time, we all get visible lines on our face. It is natural for our face to lose some of its youthful fullness.
We notice our skin becoming thinner and drier.
Our genes largely control when these changes occur. The medical term for this type of aging is “intrinsic aging.”
We can influence another type of aging that affects our skin.
Our environment and lifestyle choices can cause our skin to age prematurely. The medical term for this type of aging is “extrinsic aging.”
By taking some preventive actions, we can slow the effects that this type of aging has on our skin.
Sun exposure is one of the main causes of premature aging, but there are many other things that can accelerate the aging process.
Smoking is one of those things.
The presence of toxic chemicals in our body also accelerates the aging process.
A healthy and nutritious diet with adequate sleep is the best way to prevent this type of aging. However, stress also accelerates the aging process.
Lack of exercise is another factor.
One thing we can do to make sure our skin ages as slowly as possible is to use products that are free from harsh chemicals and have a very low toxicity.
Also, use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 when we are outdoors for a long time. This will help protect our skin against the sun’s harmful rays.
It is also important to drink plenty of water and eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. These will flush out toxins from our body and keep our skin clean and young looking.
Another important thing we can do to keep our skin as young looking as possible is to use a good anti-aging skincare routine.
Use products that are specifically designed for aging skin.
Look for products that contain antioxidants and other ingredients that have been clinically proven to slow down the aging process.
Follow the instructions carefully.
Apply the product morning and night after cleansing your face.
