We know the sun is the main culprit for premature aging skin. While aging is natural, there are ways to delay the inevitable. And so, it is worth knowing what the other causes are so we can help prevent our skin from premature aging.
Deep fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin; that’s what we’re fighting against here.
While aging is inevitable, stress is something we need to manage. Stress increases cortisol level and this weakens collagen production and decreases our skin’s ability to repair itself. Stress can also be linked to bad attitudes. If you are constantly angry and easily agitated, it would show on your skin too, eventually. Stressed people also frown and this all lead to fine lines etched into the skin, and of course, more wrinkles. When you are constantly frowning and scowling, the wrinkles can be permanent due to muscle memory.
Extreme climates, environment pollutants
So what can you do?
1. Manage your stress. Easier said than done for many of us, but we can try. Try meditating, yoga, or treat yourself for a well-deserved FACIAL time! That’s something Skin Valet and Narqes Medispa can help you with *wink*
2. Again, over and over again, drink plenty of water. Eat your fruits and vegetables. Use moisturizers for your skin; face and body. All these efforts will help delay skin aging.
3. Stick with food that are low in fats, cut down sugar and processed food in your food intake, and eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. You can still enjoy food, but make it a habit to choose your food wisely. Tomatoes, avocados, flax seed, pomegranate, fatty fish and even dark chocolate; these have been listed as anti-aging food!
