Aging gracefully isn’t just about trying to maintain a youthful looking complexion when you get older. It’s about adopting a holistic lifestyle so your mind and body are healthy as well, and that starts NOW. Here are some timeless tips we can share on how to maintain your beauty in mind, body and soul so you’ll be looking and feeling young and vibrant no matter what age you are!
Sun Protection is Key
Many studies have shown that photoaging – also known commonly as sun damage due to ultraviolet (UV) light – is one of the biggest contributors to premature aging of the skin.
Want to avoid premature aging symptoms like brown spots and wrinkly skin? Make sure you religiously apply broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least Sun Protection Factor (SPF) 30 wherever you go – yes even indoors. The secret is in re-applying throughout the day to keep the SPF effective!
Eat Your Vegetables
Not only is a vegetable-rich diet a great choice for your general health, but it also has amazing benefits for your skin thanks to a micronutrient known as polyphenols that are commonly found in plants.
Polyphenols have immense antioxidative powers, which help your body to combat the oxidative stress caused by environmental factors like photoaging, pollution, and more.
Given that our skin contains 64% water, it makes absolute sense that supplying it with a sufficient amount of water will help in the upkeep of our skin health.
Studies have shown that drinking at least 8 cups of water a day has a significant impact on skin health like improving skin elasticity and clarity.
Say no to dull, dry and blemished skin by rehydrating throughout the day with H2O!
Get Your Weekly Dose of Exercise
Research has long proven that regular exercise is great for keeping us healthy over time, but some recent research has shown that sustained aerobic exercise can also help “reverse the aging process”!
Apart from the exciting discovery that exercise could help rejuvenate our stem cells, other studies also show that exercises that get your heart pumping are key to helping our mind and body stay healthy and young by providing our cells with more oxygen, and purging the body of toxins!
Adopt a Good Skincare Routine
Show your skin the TLC that it deserves with a daily skincare routine that provides hydration and protection from pollutants in the environment.
- Ensure you cleanse your skin at least twice a day (morning and night) to get rid of the environmental pollutants that could cause clogged pores and irritations. Never go to bed without cleansing your skin!
- Apply a light serum and moisturizer after each cleanse to hydrate your skin and help to retain moisture throughout the day.
- 2-3 times a week, do a gentle exfoliation to remove build up of dead skin cells to reveal brighter looking skin
- Sun protection with broad-spectrum sunscreen in the mornings and whenever necessary.
Choose Organic Cosmetic Products
Many anti-aging beauty products and cosmetic products which women rely on to look and feel better are made with harmful and synthetic chemicals that have been linked to both immediate and long term side effects on skin and body such as enlarged pores, skin sensitivity, organ malfunction and possibly even cancer.
Thankfully, with the introduction of organic cosmetic products, women no longer have to choose between looking good or putting dangerous products on their skin. Truly organic products are made with clean, 100% natural ingredients and contain no harmful or synthetic chemicals. You can rest assured that you are choosing the best for your health and your skin will thank you in the long run!
