No matter how young you are, it’s never too early to think about strategizing your skin care routine to fight common signs of aging. While it’s impossible to definitively prevent fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and crepey skin, there are things you can do to minimize the depth and severity of aging, beginning right now.
Eat Right for Natural Anti-Aging Benefits
A healthy diet is good for you in general, but to see truly noticeable results, take a 2-pronged approach: avoid sugar and add antioxidants. Not only does sugar cause inflammation but it can make your skin look sickly; avoiding processed sugar can brighten your complexion. Antioxidants help fight the effects of inflammation and other environmental factors that affect skin, like UV rays and air pollutants. They’re found in fruits and vegetables like berries, kale, spinach, and broccoli. And if you’re worried you don’t get enough antioxidants in your diet, choose anti-aging skin care products that offer antioxidant formulas.
The Sun is Your Frenemy
We all love the sun and its ability to help us with Vitamin D but the sun doesn’t always love us. That’s why we need sunscreen; in fact, you probably need more of it. No, really, more than that. Get more bang for your buck by choosing sunscreens that do double duty with antioxidant skin care. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen liberally to easily overlooked places like the back of your neck, your decollete, your ears, and even the backs of your hands. These are the places that, even if you take great care of your face, will still make you look old as they suffer from sun damage, like wrinkles and spots. Don’t be shy about choosing a high SPF sunscreen; we need all the anti-aging help we can get.
Be Serious About Bedtime
Your mother was right; wash off your makeup at night before going to sleep. And speaking of night, beauty sleep isn’t a myth. Get 8 hours every night for the best skin of your life. When you get enough sleep, your body has a chance to really let the stress hormones wind down; released from that always-on mode, your body can get to work making repairs, including the kind of cell repair that keeps you looking refreshed and youthful.
