Human life consists of various phases namely childhood, youth and old age. Every one who takes birth has to pass through these different phases. Everyone wants to remain young and healthy forever. Every one dreads old age. But we humans have to submit to the laws of nature
and accept things as they are. Aging not only has an adverse effect on a person’s health, but also deteriorates his or her physical appearance. Many handsome men and beautiful women, who were renowned for their beauty during their youth, have looked hideous during their old age. Aging cannot be avoided but there are various ways by which its effects could be delayed or reduced.
Here are 10 vital tips to fight skin aging:
Avoid smoking and drinking – Excessive smoking and drinking is not only hazardous for health, but is also detrimental for your skin. The toxins present in a cigarette and wine are harmful for your skin. Excessive drinking also leads to dehydration which can lead to formation of wrinkles and lines.
Stay away from sun – Sun emits UVA and UVB rays which are extremely harmful for skin. Over exposure to sun could lead to skin cancer and formation of wrinkles.
Drink plenty of water – Intake of plenty of water removes toxins from your body. The removal of deadly toxins ensures a healthy and glowing skin.
Regular bath – A regular bath is a must in order to maintain proper hygiene and cleanliness. A warm bath is more suitable for skin than a hot bath as bathing with hot water could lead to skin dryness.
Facial treatments – Facial treatments can play a key role in revitalizing your skin. They are the most adequate solution for skin dryness. Plain yogurt is an effective product in this regard.
Proper sleep -Proper sleep of about 6-7 hours a day is essential for the proper functioning of body and maintenance of good health. It also reduces dark circles and bags around the eyes.
Anti aging creams – Various kinds of ingredients known for their anti aging and other skin related benefits are used while making these anti aging creams. These products could be moisturizers, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and natural skin care products. Some of the most commonly used ingredients of anti aging creams are egg oil, retinol, glycolic acid, tartaric acid, malic acid, lactic acid, copper peptides, glutathione, vitamin C, vitamin E, organic and inorganic chemical compounds. These creams are produced with the intention of giving you a younger looking skin and reducing various skin aging symptoms like wrinkles, expression lines, blemishes, pigmentation changes, discolorations etc.
Worry Less- No one has ever achieved anything in her life by worrying. Instead of worrying, a person should think positively and try to find a solution for any problem or situation that she is facing currently. Undue worrying can lead to formation of wrinkles on your face.
Avoid fizzy drinks – Excessive intake of fizzy drinks could lead to dehydration which could lead to skin dryness. Avoid them.
Partake a healthy diet – Enjoying a healthy diet comprising mainly of fruits and vegetables is essential to counter the harmful effects of aging. A healthy diet also keeps a check on your weight which in turn makes you appear young and healthy.
