How To Look 10 Years Younger! - Articles Surfing
Are you annoyed by the little wrinkles that are starting to appear? Frustrated that your once pearly skin is now slowly aging and no longer *smooth as silk*?
If so then you*re not alone! Many people are frustrated with wrinkles as they age. Most even spend a fortune buying expensive cures and medication (even cosmetic surgery!). However, like most things in life, prevention is better than a cure. For those who have not had eight hours sleep every night, moisturized regularly, stayed out of the sun and never touched alcohol, where should they start?
Below are some *preventative* measures you can take to stop those wrinkles* and look 10 years younger!
A. Moisturizer * Using moisturizers everyday will help keep your skin moist and wrinkle-free. As skin ages it tends to become drier. Dry skin will show more wrinkles than well hydrated skin. Moisturizers create a barrier that keeps the skin from losing essential water. The moisturizers available today are far more luxurious than the cold creams of yesterday. Starting a moisturizing routine will help your skin retain hydration which contributes to a supple texture reducing the appearance of fine lines. Moisturizers also prepare the skin for the application of makeup which will apply smoother and create a fine finish without cracking or flaking.
B. Antioxidants * Today many facial products and even food advertise having antioxidants as an ingredient. Using antioxidants in your facial products or in supplements will protect the collagen and elastin in your skin which keeps skin firm and supple.
C. Sunscreen - It is vital that you protect your skin from the damage of the sun. While the dangers were not as well known years ago (or so severe) it now the responsibility of everyone to safeguard the sensitive skin on their face from the harsh damage caused by the UV rays from the sun. Your skin is exposed to the sun no matter what the weather so use a moisturizer or foundation with a sunscreen that has an SPF of 15 or higher every day. UVA and UVB rays contribute to wrinkles and burns not to mention the possibility of skin cancer.
D. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) * These are available in many forms, from store bought creams to dermatologist applied formulations. The AHA sloughs off skin in what is commonly called a 'peel'. A mild formula used at home can treat fine lines while harsher peels can be performed during a short office visit.
E. Proper Nutrition And Drinking A Lot Of Water * As your mother used to tell you, what goes inside will show on the outside. The best prevention from aging skin is to provide your body with a proper diet of healthy fresh foods as well as sufficient hydration. Alcohol and caffeine cause dehydration and should be limited. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day will improve the texture of your skin and fight dry skin. Healthy foods can provide the vitamin C and E that are so rich in antioxidants.
By using some of the simple preventative methods above, you can stop those wrinkles without expensive medication or cosmetic surgery* and look 10 years younger for a change!
