There are many ways you can protect your skin from premature aging. Avoid repetitive facial expressions. When you make a facial expression, you contract the underlying muscles. If you repeatedly contract the same muscles for many years, these lines can become permanent. Wearing sunglasses can help reduce lines caused by squinting.
If signs of aging skin bother you, remember the expert treatments available at AuraSpa of Beverly Hills. These state-of-the-art treatments include a holistic approach to smoothing wrinkles, tightening skin and improving one’s complexion, creating younger-looking skin.
Avoid The Sun
The number one thing you can do to create a more youthful you is to shield your skin from the sun every day. Whether spending a day at the beach or running errands, sun protection is essential. You can protect your skin by seeking shade, covering up with sun-protective clothing including a wide-brimmed hat and wearing sunglasses with UV protection. One of the most important aspects of sun protection is using sunscreen that is a broad-spectrum SPF of 30, which covers 97% of harmful UV rays.
Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. Eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables rich in anti-oxidants helps to prevent damage that leads to premature skin aging. In contrast, a diet containing lots of sugar or other refined carbohydrates can accelerate aging.
If you smoke, stop. Smoking greatly speeds up how quickly skin ages, causing wrinkles and a dull complexion.
Drink less alcohol. Alcohol is rough on the skin because of its dehydration effect and in time, causing damages to the skin, making us look older.
Cleanse your skin gently. Scrubbing your skin clean can lead to irritation, which accelerates aging. Gentle washing helps to remove makeup and other substances without irritating your skin.
Apply a facial moisturizer every day. Moisturizer traps water in our skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
