8 Anti-Aging Skincare Tips
Why wait for the fountain of youth to be discovered when youthful skin is within reach today!
You are not alone in wanting to avoid looking your age and stopping the aging process in its tracks may be more feasible than you’d imagine.
How do you avoid looking your age?
Before you start spending a fortune on every pill and potion at your local pharmacy, follow these anti-aging tips to staying youthful and diminish signs of ageing.
Anti-aging Skin Care Tips
- Protect your skin from the sun
Sun protection forms the foundation of every anti-aging skin-care routine. While Vitamin D from the sun is good for you, a little too much could result in your skin drying up and sporting an unhealthy leathery visage. The suns rays prematurely age our skin (photoaging).
Avoid skin damage with the regular application of sunscreen before going outdoors. SPF 30 or higher and don’t forget to reapply.
- Drink more H2O
Not drinking enough water will take a toll on skin. Hydrate from the inside and keep your skin looking radiant. It is recommended to drink at least eight glasses (or two litres) of water a day. Your body will thank you for it and your skin will look better, so drink up!
- Skip the Wine and Get Juicing
While water hydrates, alcohol dehydrates the body! If you’re looking to keep aging at bay, think twice before having that second glass of wine. Dehydrated skin is more likely to appear dry, sallow and dull. Try and reduce alcohol consumption and substitute with a healthy, antioxidant rich, leafy green juice which is great for your skin because it's oxygenating and contains vital minerals to help stimulate the lymphatic system and drain out puffiness - one glass a day is ideal!
- Avoid Sugar
A diet high in refined sugars accelerates the process of glycation which causes skin to age. Excess sugar in your diet, from soft drinks, cakes and cookies, can cause sagging, wrinkles and dark circles to form under eyes. Swap sugar-laden treats for anti-ageing antioxidants such as blueberries, avocados and green juices to keep your youthful appearance and avoid looking your age.
When I had gestational diabetes, I cut out sugar from my diet and felt so much more alert, energised and with immense clarity on the inside, while on the outside, my skin never looked so good.
- Scale back on Salt
Two words – water retention. Eating food high in sodium makes your body retain water, leaving you feeling heavy and bloated. So, no surprise that super-salty meals trigger a similar response in your face, giving you a puffier appearance (especially under your eyes, for example).
- Get Enough Sleep
Arianna Huffington is right when she talks about the importance of sleep and the emotional, mental and physical benefits. It’s called beauty rest for a reason. You should think of sleep as being another essential step in your skincare routine as sleep gives your body time to refresh and renew itself.
- Hydrate Your Skin
As we age, the ability for our skin to stay hydrated decreases and dry skin is common. Dry, red, flaky skin becomes the norm and fine lines appear that need to be hydrated with moisture-retaining skincare, on top of drinking plenty of water
Getting into a routine of applying hydrating moisturiser every day becomes a must to maintain the skins youthful appearance. For best results, use facial and body moisturisers such as Kadee Botanicals Hand Cream, Body Lotion, Hydrating Day and Night Cream and Eye Cream.
- Stop Smoking
Add this to the already-long list of reasons to quit. This habit takes a major toll on your appearance as tobacco smoke contains toxins that can lead to smoker’s face. Signs of smoker’s face include dull and dry complexion, loss of firmness, premature lines and wrinkles, leathery skin, stained teeth, and even increased psoriasis risk. Horribly aging your skin.
