When you walk into a room, your skin is the first thing people notice. If it’s wrinkled, baggy and dull, it can make you look older than you are. Don’t let premature aging put a damper on your life. A combination of healthy habits, and products from Platinum Skin Care will keep your skin looking youthful longer. We are about looking and FELLING younger and greater here at Muds And Sticks!
Avoid too much sun. The sun’s UV rays attacks the collagen and elastin in the skin, and causes it to lose elasticity. Also, when people are out in the sun, they tend to squint to protect their eyes. Over time, the combination of squinting and collagen and elastin breakdown causes fine lines and premature wrinkling in the skin. These fine lines and wrinkles are especially prevalent around the eyes (see this post for more details to avoid wrinkles using chemical peels).
Fill your diet with antioxidants. Food additives, pesticides and environmental pollutants contribute to free radicals in the body. When these molecules accumulate, it causes oxidative damage to the cells and can contribute to premature aging. The National Institutes of Health suggests that eating fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants slows down oxidative damage in the body. This in turn, can slow aging in the skin. Some antioxidant-rich foods include:
Use the right skin care products. The right anti-aging products can work in unison with other methods to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We recommend Citrustem Stem Cell Complex 35 to help improve the elasticity of the skin and give you a more youthful appearance.
Get plenty of exercise. Thirty to 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity can improve blood and oxygen circulation in the skin, and give it a natural glow. Working out regularly also helps tone the muscles to keep the skin on the face from sagging.
Premature aging is something no one should have to endure. When you avoid overexposure to the sun, eat foods rich in antioxidants, use recommended products from Platinum Skin Care and get plenty of exercise, you won’t have to deal with your skin wrinkling or sagging prematurely.
