Our skin faces so much harsh exposure to the elements and, over time, it begins to show visible signs of aging. There are so many factors that impact the health and appearance of your skin. Everything from the environment you live in, sun exposure, air humidity, as well as lifestyle influences such as diet and exercise all play a role!
The team at PurnaSTRI Women’s Health Excellence has compiled a small list of the most effective ways to prevent visible signs of aging, to help keep your skin looking younger and more radiant than ever. These are changes that can be easily integrated into your life, and applied with varying degrees of intensity!
Reduce Sun Exposure
The sun is always giving off ultraviolet radiation, meaning anytime you step outside, your skin is being subjected to potentially harmful rays. These UV rays can damage the DNA in your skin cells and they can also cause collagen to weaken, resulting in damaged, wrinkled skin. UV radiation is one of the most significant health hazards in regard to skincare and skin health.
By limiting your time in direct sunlight, or applying adequate strength sunscreen, you can prevent a significant amount of skin damage, helping to keep your skin younger and tighter!
This tip can be applied in two areas of your life, first, drinking enough water throughout the day helps your body’s internal systems function as intended. Secondly, applying a daily moisturizer to help keep your outer skin layers hydrated is critical for maintaining the health and youthful appearance of your skin.
Your natural moisture barrier helps keep out dirt and other particulates, while also preventing superficial damage from the sun and preventing your skin from drying out because of other elements.
Eat Skin Healthy Foods
Your daily diet is directly tied to the health and appearance of your skin. Make sure that you get your daily recommended portion of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants.
Eat a range of fruits and berries, leafy green vegetables, and fatty fish such as salmon. These food sources are packed with nutrients that will keep your skin looking its best!
Tobacco has incredibly powerful negative effects on the body, and one of them is how it damages skin cells. Years of smoking take their toll on your facial skin cells, weakening the collagen and elastin in the skin, giving way to facial wrinkles, discoloration, and uneven skin tones!
Quitting smoking has so many inherent health benefits that extend beyond skincare, so it should be something you seriously consider!
Stay Physically Active
You might be wondering, how does exercise help my skin? Well, the benefits to your skin are achieved through other channels activated through physical activity. Routine exercise enables the body to perform internal functions more efficiently, clear waste, encourage a healthy diet, release stress and promote a more substantial sleeping routine!
While there is no machine at the gym that improves your skin, regular exercise will absolutely set the groundwork for a younger, more confident appearance!
Prolonged periods of stress can have incredibly negative effects on the entire body, let alone your skin. High levels of stress can cause aggressive skin conditions like rashes, acne, and hair loss to occur.
If you are experiencing sustained stress levels, you are putting your health at risk as it can lead to even more serious chronic conditions down the road. Engage in meditation, yoga, mindfulness, or another form of stress management to unwind and get relief.
Get Enough Sleep
Sleep provides more than just energy for the day. It allows the body to reset its systems, replenish, heal, recover and rebuild. During your sleep is when all of the accumulated nutrients and proteins can be put to use, rejuvenating and repairing damaged tissues in the body.
Getting 7-8 hours of sleep each night can leave you looking and feeling your best, free of puffy eyes, dark circles, congestion, and other signs of sleep deprivation.
