7 Tips for Managing and Preventing Aging Skin
If you're into your mid-20s or 30s, now is the best time to do everything you can to go against the tide of aging. What you do now for or against your skin will have noticeable consequences as you age.
Some of the best things you can start doing now are to not tan or smoke. Please don't count on kicking these habits later on in life; it won't protect your skin from what's going on right now.
Signs of aging will slowly creep up on you in your 30s, but it's also an excellent time to start because a little effort can go a long way.
Further on, we're going to address some anti-skin aging home tips that you can pick up to keep your youthful glow!
Sunscreen Everyday Works Wonders
No matter the weather and seasons, wearing sunscreen should be a daily component of your morning routine, as essential as brushing your teeth.
The American Academy of Dermatology recommends sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 with a 'broad-spectrum' on the label.
Broad-spectrum sunscreen entails that it protects against the sun's UVA and UVB rays.
Tanning is one of the biggest skin mistakes you can make. Ultraviolet radiation causes your skin to look worse as time goes by.
Too much sun also leads to skin discoloration and a significant decrease in elastin and collagen production.
Sunglasses aren't only for protecting your eyes. They're also useful for protecting the delicate skin around them. Less squinting equals fewer wrinkles.
Keep Your Head Covered
Alongside sunscreen, wearing hats with a broad brim helps as well.
If you're someone who works in the sun a lot, wear sun-protective clothing with at least a 30 SPF.
Stop Tobacco Use
You know well enough that smoking is terrible news for your health. In terms of your skin, it speeds up collagen breakdown and constricts blood vessels that carry nutrients and oxygen to your skin.
Don't Drink A Lot
Having a nice drink at the bar with your friends or accompanying that Italian meal with a red wine glass is okay.
Yet, drinking too much alcohol causes your skin to dehydrate. It also dilates your blood vessels, potentially leading to skin conditions such as rosacea.
Use Retinoids And Retinols
Retinoids are prescription face medications that help your skin look younger. Retinols are weaker forms of medicine that can be obtained over-the-counter.
