Combat the Signs of Aging with These Tips & Planet Beach’s Firm!Products
Many things cause our skin to age. Some we can’t do much about, but others we can influence. One thing that we cannot change is the natural aging process. It plays a key role. With time, we all get visible lines on our face. It is natural for our face to lose some of its youthful fullness. We notice our skin becoming thinner and drier. Our genes largely control when these changes occur, but we can influence another type of aging that affects our skin. Our environment and lifestyle choices can cause our skin to age prematurely. By taking some preventive actions, we can slow the effects that this type of aging has on our skin.
Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet: Findings from a few studies suggest that eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables may help prevent damage that leads to premature skin aging. Findings from research studies also suggest that a diet containing lots of sugar or other refined carbohydrates can accelerate aging.
Drinking: Alcohol is rough on the skin. It dehydrates the skin and, in time, damages the skin. This can make us look older.
Smoking: If you smoke, stop. Smoking greatly speeds up how quickly skin ages. It causes wrinkles and a dull, sallow complexion.
Exercise: Moderate exercise can improve circulation and boost the immune system. This, in turn, may give the skin a more-youthful appearance.
Facial Expressions: You can prevent facial aging by avoiding repetitive facial expressions. When you make a facial expression, you contract the underlying muscles. If you repeatedly contract the same muscles for many years, these lines become permanent.
Sun exposure: One way to reduce premature skin aging is to protect your face from the sun every day. Whether spending a day at the beach or running errands, sun protection is essential.
Skincare: Using a professional-grade skincare regime is highly important in both preventing and diminishing the signs of aging. Cleansing your skin gently is an important part of the mix. Scrubbing your skin can irritate it which accelerates skin aging. Gentle washing helps to remove pollution, make up, and other substances without irritation. Also, be sure to wash your face twice a day and after sweating heavily. Perspiration irritates the skin, so you want to wash your skin as soon as possible after that work out. Another important step is applying a facial moisturizer every day. Moisturizer traps water in our skin, giving it a more youthful appearance, and many facial moisturizers provide that sun protection as well.
At Planet Beach, we offer an array of amazing skincare products including pH balanced cleansers, all-natural anti-aging moisturizers and more!
