HOW TO ACHIEVE YOUNGER LOOKING SKINWritten by Valerie Goettsch
HEALTHY SKIN BEGINS WITH THE BASICS.
Overexposure to Sun Causes Wrinkles and Premature Aging. The most important thing you can do to help minimize wrinkles is to stay out of sun. If you suntan now, you will pay for it later. Over time, exposure to sun causes permanent damage to your skin. This causes freckling, dark spots, wrinkles, and thickening or roughening of skin, and you can end up looking years older than your actual age. More seriously, it can also lead to skin cancer. Wearing a sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection daily is a must. Don't forget your lips—use a lip balm with sunscreen daily. A darker shade of lipstick will offer some additional protection. Some people who are sensitive to sun also find excessive sun exposure aggravates/promotes cold sores.
Diet and Exercise Make a Difference. Younger looking skin starts from inside, with a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise. Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, and avoid refined sugars, flours and processed foods. Try to eat more whole grains and seafood and less red meat. Learn to regard beans and legumes as a tasty source of protein and fiber. You have probably read many times about importance of drinking lots of water, but do you actually do it? One of best things you can do for healthier, younger looking skin is to drink lots of water, at least eight 8-ounces glasses a day, more if exercising. Drinking water helps keep your body hydrated, your skin will be softer and wrinkles will be less apparent.
