Whether you are a movie star or a stay at home mom, everyone wants
to hide their age using anti aging skincare products and procedures.
Sadly, anti aging skincare is not achieved by any magic potion that
will render you ten or twenty years younger over night. It is about
discipline and about being proactive with your skin care regime to
retard your skin's aging process. Here are a few tips for proactive
anti aging skincare:
1. Maintain healthy eating habits: A well balanced diet is the key
to maintaining a proper body metabolism. Eat a lot of fruits and
vegetables (raw), they are the best source of fiber and will provide
all the natural nutrients your body will need. Avoid unsaturated fats
as nothing ages the skin and the body more than being over weight.
2. Beat stress: This is probably the most important anti aging
skincare measure. Stress disturbs the body's metabolism and deepens all
those frown lines which accelerates the aging process. Sleep, exercise
and fresh air are all good ways of beating stress. A nice bath with
pure aromatic oils such as rose and lavender will also help soothe a
3. Drink a lot of water: Anti aging skincare can’t be any simpler
than this simple method. Water helps in flushing out the toxins from
the body, and to keep the skin hydrated. Although there is no
scientific evidence as to how much water one should drink, a safe
target is to divide your weight by 16, and the number you have will be
the number glasses of 8 ounce water you should drink. For example: if
you are 176 lbs, take 176 /16 and you will have 11 - the number of
glasses of water you need a day.
4. Regular exercise such as brisk walking, a dance class or some
weight lifting is a wonderful anti aging skin care procedure. Besides
toning your muscles, it also helps in cleaning the skin by flushing out
the toxins in the form of sweat. Exercise should be followed by a warm
shower in order to completely remove the toxins.
5. Avoid the use of harsh, chemical based products on your skin.
Skin care products with natural ingredients are a good option. Use of
organic skin care products (home made or commercial) can be a very
effective anti aging skincare measure but do not overuse skin care
products either, as your skin will need to breathe and be able to
regenerate naturally as well.
6. Do not ignore skin disorders especially signs of Rosacea or
abnormal skin markings; it can lead to permanent skin damage or worse.
Visit your dermatologist and seek his/her advice as soon as you can.
7. Vitamin C as a supplement and in skin care products are also
popular means of anti aging skin care. However, be careful as these
products seem to oxidize very quickly (which makes them harmful for the
skin). Store them properly and if the product turns Yellowish brown,
the vitamin C in the product has oxidized and is no longer suitable for
8. Wonder why people like Madonna and Nicole Kidman always looks so
youthful? They never go in the sun, or if they do, they will make sure
they are well protected against the sun's rays. Protect your skin
against UV radiation ; UV rays are known to speed up the aging process.
So, a good sunscreen lotion or cream of 30+ should be a part of your
anti aging skincare routine.
