A Difference the World can C

Introduction

Skin can age faster than you can. But, aging skin is avoidable and you can fight it. A younger, undamaged skin makes a person feel more confident and happier.

What are the Visible Signs of Skin Aging ?

Signs of aging skin are dry skin, dull complex-ion, rough texture, age spots / uneven skin colour with dark patches, fine lines and wrinkles.

What are the Causes of Skin Aging?

There are two main causes of aging

Internal Factors

  • Genetics, natural aging process.

External Factors

  • Sunlight

     Just a few minutes of sun exposure each day without sun protection can cause noticeable changes in the skin over the years.

  • Smoking
    Cigarette smoking causes changes in the skin that accelerate the aging process.
  • Facial Expressions
    Repetitive facial movements lead to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Sleep Position
    Resting your face on the pillow in the same way every night for years also leads to wrinkles.

How can Skin Aging be Prevented?

Healthy lifestyle choices and good skin care with specific anti-aging products can delay the aging process and prevent many skin problems.

Healthy Lifestyle Choices

It is extremely important to treat your skin as your best friend. So, let's take a quick look at the general tips for healthy skin and befriend it for the rest of your life.

  • Protect yourself from the sun. Sun exposure can cause wrinkles, freckles, age spots and rough, dry skin.
  • Avoid smoking. Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles.

  • Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. A healthy diet helps the skin get the nutrition it needs to help repair ongoing damage from the sun and other environmental elements.
  • Hydrate the skin by drinking plenty of water. Drinking sufficient water maintains the suppleness and elasticity of the skin.

  • Gently cleanse your face twice daily - in the morning and at night.
  • Moisturize your skin regularly. If you have oily skin, look for an oil-free moisturizer.

  • Get enough sleep. Lack of sleep promotes dark under-eye circles and tends to raise stress levels.
  • Exercise regularly.

  • Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that is available in many anti-aging products.
