premature aging

Premature aging isn’t necessarily something that you have to put up with. With all of the products and treatments on the market today, there is really no excuse to look old before your time. If you do, however, there are still numerous treatments available that can help reverse the effects that aging has had on your skin, face, and body in general. Ultimately, though, we would like to head aging off before it begins. The following are some useful tips on how to prevent premature aging.

Be As Healthy As You Can Be

As well as eating healthy, you should get all the sleep and rest that your body requires. Different individuals need varied hours of sleep. But enough sleep is absolutely necessary for your system – and this includes your skin cells – to refresh and rejuvenate.

And drink lots of water. Drinking tons of water helps your body flush out all of the impurities that can make skin look unhealthy. It also helps your skin stay hydrated; because nothing makes skin wrinkle faster than when it loses its moisture and dries out.

Moisturizers, Lotions, and Creams Come In Handy

Your face isn’t the only skin that starts to sag and wrinkle as you get older. Body moisturizers and lotions help keep your skin looking young, fresh, and hydrated. Sagging and wrinkles make you look old before your time; but with the right scheduled, daily skin care, you can keep the effects of aging at bay.

Don’t just grab what’s on sale. Look online for reviews and positive customer feedback. The cream you use doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive, but products that do extensive testing and use today’s advanced technology to produce their products do tend to be a bit more pricey. And always remember to use sunscreen.

Not So Much Makeup!

Makeup might temporarily fill in skin folds and wrinkles, but it is not a permanent solution. Additionally, some brands applied incorrectly actually accentuate your wrinkles, folds, and imperfections. If you must wear makeup be sure that at the end of the day you remove it completely. There are harmful chemicals in most makeups, and your skin doesn’t need exposure to any nastier chemicals.

Take It Easy On the Coffee

Don’t worry – we are not going to tell you to give up your morning blast of caffeine. For younger looking skin for a longer period of time, however, it would help to limit your intake. Why does coffee make you look older faster? It can alter your sleep patterns. Less sleep will cause you to age faster (and look it). Try juices or water later in the day.

Face Washing – More Water, Less Soap

There are minerals in water that will help provide nutrition for your skin. Damaging scrubs, facial washes, and soaps can suck out moisture and leave behind residue. Water will moisturize, replenish, and refresh your skin naturally. Additionally, you’re far less likely to have a reaction to just plain water as opposed to some scrubs and soaps.
