Step By Step Instructions
The secret of having the smooth and younger looking skin is not on the products you use, but a huge part of it mirrors your lifestyle. That being said, the following are the 10 essential ways on how you can achieve that.
1. Quit Smoking
Smoking kills. I can even say it without batting an eyelash because it is, and whatever proof you need, it is all written and seen anywhere and everywhere. Aside from the hideous fact that it can cause several known diseases such as cancer and other respiratory and heart illnesses, it damages our skin as it promotes premature ageing and causes several skin disorders.
2. Lessen Alcohol
Yes, you read it right. You don’t necessarily need to stop drinking though, but keep it at a minimum. Red wine is good for the body, as it contains high level of antioxidants and good for the heart, among other things. Alcohol has several benefits when consumed moderately. As otherwise, it has long list negative effects to the skin and body affecting the cell structure, for one.
3. Eat Less Sugar
You might need to hold off your sugar and skip the dessert, as too much sugar consumption may increase the risk for certain diseases and can be bad for your skin as it is one cause of acne and wrinkles. I know what you’re giving up. Just saying NO alone already takes a huge toll, so we can all be realistic and say that though it is possible to say NO, it is difficult and a decision we can’t be ever ready to take. I mean, what’s life without dessert? So let us not crucify ourselves, it is okay to eat as long as we consume moderately.
4. Drink enough water
This is perhaps one of the most important heath tip not just to our skin but to our entire well-being. It flushes toxins and gives our skin a nice glow and color. Not only that, it makes our hair shinier and our body healthier. That is pretty much as lot of benefits by just drinking water. And how many glasses do we need to drink per day? Health authorities recommend 8 glasses a day, at least, which is equal to about 2 liters.
5. Nourish yourself with these Vitamins
These vitamins supplement to keep our body healthier and get that younger looking skin:
Vitamin A is an effective treatment for aging and acne. It works to prevent the appearance of those annoying zits and wrinkles. This happens as it eliminates dead skin cells and produces new and healthy skin faster through the shedding process. Look no farther, as we can always get this by eating carrots, spinach, pumpkin and sweet potato.
It could be that this Vitamin B stands for Beauty as it helps keep our skin from getting dry and flaky and even reduces the appearance of fine lines to get that younger looking skin. It works with our hair and nails as well as it counteracts the harm caused by free radicals. You can find this vitamin from lentils, almonds and peas.
Our skin benefits from Vitamin C through the production of collagen, which rejuvenates the skin and reduces the symptoms of aging. It also protects the skin’s DNA from discoloration and skin cancer. At the same time, it helps lightens your skin’s dark parts like freckles and age spots for a smooth and fair skin. Fruits and vegetable are the primary source of Vitamin C. So make it a habit to eat those regularly.
Perhaps the cheapest and most accessible to acquire, our body may be able to produce Vitamin D through the sufficient exposure to sunlight. If however you are not getting enough sunlight or you live in a place that has limited supply of it, then you may resort to eating foods that contain this vitamin or take supplements. These foods include salmon, tuna, kale, cereals and soy milk.
6. Always Use Sunscreen
Whether you are exposed to the sun or not, wearing sunscreen is essential because sunlight can still penetrate and damage your skin regardless. Using it regularly protects your skin from the sun’s harmful effects and UV rays. This vlogger particularly use one with SPF 60 for maximum protection.
