Now more than ever, looking ten years younger is achievable through natural, high-quality skin care products. Follow these lifestyle and beauty tips to turn back the hands of time.
In order to turn back the hands of time, we must identify what pushes them forward in the first place.
It would seem that taking good care of our skin, using a moisturizer, getting adequate sleep, and staying out of the sun would seemingly provide youthful, glowing skin well into your forties. However, that’s simply not the case when confronting the aging process. A whole host of external and internal forces work against our skin as time goes on causing premature aging. Fortunately, there are ways to look ten years younger - without expensive, risky surgeries - that are sustainable and healthy. Before digging into these tips and tricks, let’s look at what ages our skin in the first place.
There’s still one thing you can’t control in this modern world - the weather. Depending on the climate you live in, the external air temperature and moisture content could be zapping your skin of its youth and vigor. Dry, hot climates are extremely harsh on the epidermis and cause it to lose moisture at a rapid pace each day. Likewise, extremely cold climates, both humid and dry, can cause wear and tear as your skin struggles to remain balanced amidst a freezing assault. Harsh, freezing wind can wick away any ounce of moisture on your skin’s barrier, causing chapping, flaking, and irritation. Dramatically changing climates - such as the desert with hot dry days and cold windy nights - can be especially damaging, causing chronically dry skin.
Like every other organ in the body, the skin relies on healthy nutrients, antioxidants, minerals, and water to function properly. Putting in toxins, synthetic ingredients, and chemicals causes damage. Refined sugars, alcohol, excess salt, and the like cause our bodies to work overtime in processing, using more energy and water. What little minerals, vitamins, or anti-oxidants we have consumed with a poor diet are not enough to fuel each of our body’s intricate systems adequately.
The body is 60% water on average. The largest organ in the body - the epidermis- is composed of 64% water, meaning it’s crucial to remain hydrated if we want our skin to look and feel its absolute best. Just one day without proper water intake (approximately 3-4 liters for the average adult) can leave us under-hydrated.
Our skin thirsts for water and can show signs of dehydration almost immediately. The lips will start to chap, the skin around the forehead and mouth tightens, and our hands can even feel dry and scratchy. Water plumps our cells up - including the millions that make up our skin.
Lifestyles choices have some say in how young or old our skin can look. Smoking cigarettes is especially damaging and has long been proven to cause premature aging. Equally, alcohol consumption zaps our body of its youth and vibrance, dehydrating our entire system and leading to damaged, dry, and dull skin. A lack of sleep and exercise can also hinder a youthful-looking appearance. It’s recommended that adults get approximately 8 hours a night of sleep and so many are falling short of this. An inadequate night’s sleep can throw off our appetite, cause dark circles, disrupt our workout schedule, and cause mental stress.
While we can’t entirely halt the aging process - thanks to Father Time - we can prevent and reduce the signs of his presence in a number of ways.
A diet packed full of whole foods, healthy grains, and seasonal producehelps our skin recover each day from external stressors and environmental wear and tear. Processing healthy foods is also easier for our body and help its entire system work better. The skin’s natural barrier is a sensitive one prone to imbalances, that can leave your face, neck, and entire body exposed to nature’s whims. A healthy diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, essential fats, and minerals allows the skin to better self-regulate, fostering a balanced ecosystem.
As mentioned above, poor hydration instantly zaps the skin of water, whereas sufficient water intake is immensely helpful. To remain taut, youthful, and glowing, the skin needs ample amounts of water. When paired with hydrating skincare products, water intake is one of the best things you can do to turn back the hands of time.
The life-giving, earth warming sunshine is unfortunately to blame for our aging skin. There’s no denying that basking in its rays gives us much-needed vitamin D and an enviable tan, but too much time spent in the sun without SPF protection can be detrimental to youthful skin.
A high-quality sunscreen, like our products from [ comfort zone ] Sun Soul line, made with biomimetic peptides to counteract signs of aging is the skin’s best defense against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. Seeing a dermatologist regularly to stay on top of moles and sunspots may also prove beneficial to staying healthy in the sun.
Establishing a skincare routine for morning and night can help restore skin to its natural balance at the beginning and end of each day. Our skin works wonders in the way of protecting us against everything we encounter and, over time, is likely to show some battle scars in the way of age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. Creating a nourishing, hydrating multi-step routine is helpful in minimizing the signs of aging. High-quality products rich in antioxidants, collagen, vitamins, and peptides are your best defense against father time.
