While aging is an inevitable part of life, the signs of aging do not have to be. There are habits to incorporate into your life to keep wrinkles and other signs of aging skin at bay.

Inflammation, free radicals (unstable atoms that can damage cells causing illness), too much sugar, and stress can all cause the aging process to accelerate. Combating their effects is vital to stave off the negative results of aging.

Here are 4 tips on keeping your skin looking its youthful best:

Invest in High-quality Skincare Products that Work for You

As we age, our skin loses elasticity, causing sagginess. It can no longer bounce back the way it used to, so wrinkles develop. Skin also becomes more transparent and fragile.

As these changes begin to occur, it is essential to invest in a skincare range that helps your skin heal and regenerate.

Cleansing your skin, making sure to prevent the effects of pollution through masks and serums, and moisturising are all essential skincare steps to take.

Ozone-enriched skincare products incorporate the healing and purifying benefits of ozone into premium cosmetics that can help maintain the health of your skin.

It’s not only what you put on your skin that counts, but also what you put inside your body.

Stay Hydrated

When you’re dehydrated, aging accelerates, so it is important to drink water consistently throughout the day – aim for two litres of water daily by sipping on water continuously throughout the day.

Remember, your skin is an organ, and like any organ in your body it needs water to function optimally. Lack of hydration cause dry skin, which has less resilience, making your skin more prone to wrinkling.

Limit Toxins

Smoking will do you absolutely no favours. Smoking has serious effects on your health as well as your skin.

However, the toxins to avoid don’t end at cigarettes.

Limit your exposure to free radicals by avoiding trans fats, being in the sun for prolonged periods of time, and pesticides.

Eat a diet high in vegetables and fruits, as they contain powerful antioxidants that help to protect skin from the damage caused by free radicals. Further to this, whenever possible, try to eat organic fruits and vegetables, or stick to buying organic when it comes to the “dirty dozen”. The Environmental Working Group found that these “dirty dozen” contain the highest level of chemical residue when compared to other fruits and vegetables.

Sweat the Inflammation Away

One of the main causes of inflammation is eating too much sugar. Sugar molecules bond to your skin and break down collagen and elastin – not ideal if you want to keep your skin looking youthful.One of the best habits to get into for reducing inflammation is exercise.

Growing older does not have to mean losing your skin’s glow. Take these four steps into account, and move into your next years with confidence.
