It is shocking to wake up in the morning to find sudden obvious signs of aging. Whether it’s a grey hair that wasn’t there the previous night or fine lines around your eyes, these can be somewhat alarming.
If that happened to you recently, it probably reminded you that you’re getting along in age. If you don’t mind these signs, there’s nothing to worry about. Just go on living your life, without any concerns.
But if you would like to delay the physical expressions of aging until you’re more comfortable with it, there are things that you can do.
Start Moisturizing Frequently
Aging causes the skin to lose its suppleness and elasticity. This is what leads to those dreaded wrinkles. However, you can prevent this from happening sooner than later by moisturizing daily and using sunblock.
Many moisturizers these days contain decent mounts of sunscreen that protect your skin from direct exposure to UV rays which can affect your skin adversely. Speaking of UV rays, you want to limit your exposure to them by avoiding excessive sun exposure and tanning beds.
If you’re concerned about how to get your daily dose of vitamin D3, the early morning sun between 6am and 9am is ideal. And you only need 15 minutes of that daily to maintain your vitamin D levels.
Take Corrective Measures
Non-evasive procedures like RF microneedling, dysport, botox, and skin tightening among others, can help eliminate or reduce fine lines, eliminate wrinkles, and make your face smooth again.
If you don’t mind getting these done, then you can be sure that those wrinkles, worry lines, crow’s feet, and fine lines will be gone within a couple of days after the procedure. And they are pretty painless, straightforward, and don’t take time.
Hydrate a Lot and Get Adequate Nutrition
Your skin is the largest organ in your body. And like all organs, it needs lots of water to stay healthy, radiant, and smooth. Sometimes, fine lines and wrinkles are brought on by dry skin.
This means that if you can eliminate the dry skin, there’s the possibility that the wrinkles will be gone. So, start by drinking a lot of water every day. Cut down on soda, alcoholic drinks, and other unhealthy drinks.
Stop smoking too. Smoking literally burns your skin –that’s why the hands and fingers of smokers look dry, brown, and burnt. People who smoke also tend to have chapped or dry, blackened lips.
Also, areas around the mouth tend to look wrinkled too. Start eating healthier by taking lots of fruits and green vegetables. These lifestyle changes will tremendously improve your skin health and reverse some of the aging signs.
Implement Proven Skincare Regimens
This includes facials, frequent exfoliation, using eye creams and vitamin C serums, natural oils, and other proven skin treatment options.
All these combined together provide your skin with the nutrition and protection that it needs to stay supple, radiant, and beautiful. Plus, they do a great job of delaying the visible signs of aging, making you look much younger and more beautiful.
