Simple Habits to Help Your Skin Age Gracefully and Naturally
Updated: Jul 18, 2019
There's a lot of science happening beneath your skin. It's estimated that the skin regeneration process begins to slow down as early as age 25. As we age, the skin’s collagen and elastin, which act as supporting structures, begin to weaken and lose their strength and elasticity. This coupled with daily stress; poor diet and lack of sleep accelerate the skins aging process, which in turn leads to wrinkles and saggy skin.
Most people don’t even think about it or realize how important it is to take care of their skin, especially at an early age. Its only when we begin to notice the extra laugh lines and puffiness under our eyes do we think it might be time to change our skin care routine. We begin to look for ways to improve it and most will turn to the anti-ageing skincare products on the market that promise amazing results. The problem is that most of the commonly sold skin care products are loaded with harmful synthetic ingredients and artificial fragrances which actually can harm your skin.
Everyday your skin is covered in layers of unhealthy substances, dead skin cells, pollutants, chemicals, sweat, sebum and bacteria, all of which make the skin appear dull and unhealthy. In addition, the application of makeup adheres these nasty elements to your face; turning your skin into a petri-dish of bacterial growth. That's why it's so important to give your face a good wash before you go to bed (regardless of how tired you're feeling). Going to bed with your makeup on is one of the worse things you can for your skin. Makeup suffocates and clogs your pores and your skin is unable to perform the natural renewal and repair process it was intended to do during your sleep.
It's crucial to avoid cleansers loaded with synthetic ingredients, as they can prevent your skin from producing the natural oils that are essential to the health of your skin. An all-natural makeup remover is an excellent tool. Organic makeup removers are pH-balanced to provide a gentle cleanse. Exfoliating once or twice a week will also help you avoid breakouts and clogged pores and it will make your skin glow with a more youthful appearance by exposing your fresh and smooth new skin cells.
Hydration too, is a crucial element for maintaining healthy skin. The human skin is mostly made up of water and that’s why a good moisturizer is an essential ingredient to its overall health and appearance. Studies have proven that a good skin moisturizer will help prevent deep lines and wrinkles from appearing. All-natural skincare products are an excellent aid in the skin's hydration process.
Over the years the sun can do a lot of damage to your skin without the regular use of sunscreen. In addition to prematurely ageing your skin, unprotected sun damage can cause cancer and other scary health issues. There are various sunscreens on the market; and it’s important to look for a natural product that will provide you with proper UV protection without leaving behind a greasy residue.
Eating healthy and regular sleep is often overlooked but are absolutely essential to help your skin rejuvenate. You are what you eat, and your skin's health is directly linked to your diet. Well-nourished skin is better able to protect itself and studies have found that a balanced diet loaded antioxidants, vitamins and minerals will go a long way to help your skin look great for years.
