The reality is that nobody likes to get old. As we age, our skin loses flexibility and becomes stiffer, which leads to wrinkles.
Obviously, there are a multitude of variables that determine the extent of our skin folds, the most important of which is our genes. We can't do much with our genes. Some of us just age more gracefully.
Regardless of age, we all prefer to look younger, which generally makes us feel better, too. For example, I was lucky to look younger than I am. What I hope was how I looked, not how I acted. As a younger person, that often got in the way. Now that I'm older, my youthful appearance works to my advantage as I don't look my age at all. It is clear that some people age more gracefully than others.
For everyone else there is high quality anti aging skin care. A topical cream can be used to target specific areas of interest. People with a history of smoking tend to have more wrinkles around their mouth and eyes, while a person who has experienced significant sun exposure may wrinkle prematurely.
Either way, a skin care cream can be applied to specific areas to smooth out those wrinkles and improve the health of the affected skin. Using skin care products is a great way to improve the health, look, and feel of your skin. But there are other things that you can and should do to improve the health of your skin.
Smoking has harmful effects on the skin. If you don't smoke, don't start, and if you are already a smoker, the sooner you can stop the better. Drinking plenty of water is also hugely beneficial. Remember that the average human body is made up of 50 to 75% water. The skin is the body's larger organ.
There is roughly 3,000 square inches of skin that weighs about 6 pounds and covers a 120 pound person! Water is essential for the maintenance of the organ! Drinking water not only keeps the skin healthy, but it also helps the skin maintain its elasticity, which is essential for reducing wrinkles. Try to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun.
If you must be in the sun for long periods of time, plan on wearing a hat, loose-fitting clothing that blocks the sun's ultraviolet rays, and sunscreen. The sun's rays have always had the potential to damage skin, but with the removal of the ozone layer, the sun's rays are even more intense and dangerous today.
Children, in particular, are prone to skin damage from the sun. Minimizing sun exposure not only improves the health of your skin, it also reduces your risk of skin cancer. A nice bonus! Obviously, you need vitamin D, so normal sun exposure is acceptable. But you really should try to keep the exposure to short doses.
And you can always take a supplement with vitamin D if you feel like you're not getting enough sun exposure, especially during the winter months. Personally, I try to stick to a reduced sun exposure protocol. But I do realize that my daily activities will likely expose me to the sun. I'm trying to mitigate this by following the suggestions above.
For example, when I know I'll be driving a bit, I put sunscreen on my arms, face, and neck. Be careful when reviewing anti-aging skin care products. Simply buying the most expensive and marketed product is not always the best course of action.
In fact, some of the more expensive products made by well-known companies are some of the worst products available for your skin. Logically, one should ask: if the manufacturer spends so much on marketing, how much does it spend on research and development?
And how much do celebrities pay to promote the product and how does that recommendation affect the price? When you think of any type of skin care product, pay close attention to the ingredient. If you see ingredients like parabens, allergens, and fragrances, keep looking! Remember that the skin absorbs 60% of what it touches.
The ingredients to see in an anti-aging skin care cream are: Phytessence Wakame, which is extracted from Japanese seaweed and helps the skin to maintain its elasticity naturally; Nanobelle CoenzymeQ10, which penetrates 7 levels of the skin for spectacular results; and Xtend-TK, which has been shown to reduce wrinkles.
A high-quality skincare product will naturally refresh your skin from the inside out, making you look and feel younger and more vibrant.
