While we all talk about ageing gracefully and age being ‘just a number’, the fine lines and the wrinkles on the skin can often be perturbing. Since a lot of us are swayed by the glossy chemicals recommended for the skin, which are not even natural, it is imperative to design an action plan to prevent or at least slow down skin-ageing.
So here are some daily habits to prevent the skin damage which ultimately leads to skin ageing:
1 . Keep It Clean
Clean your hands and face more often to let not the dirt remain for long. More realistically, cleansing your face with a mild face wash three-four times a day to get rid of the accumulated oily dirt will go a long way in preventing pimples, acne, blemishes and dark spots.
2 . Keep It Hydrated
Right after you clean the face comes the moisturizer, especially before you retire to bed at night. Apply the moisturizer evenly on your face, hands and neck after cleaning your face. This prevents the appearance of age related wrinkles and fine lines on skin.
3 . Limit Exposure To Sunlight
Excess of Sun, unfortunately happens to become our skin’s enemy. Its harmful UV rays penetrate most protective shields and cause severe skin-cell damage to exposed areas. It is important to use a sunscreen lotion with an SPF rating of 30 or more every time you venture out.
4 . Exercise Regularly
Other than keeping you physically more active, exercise empowers your body from within. It induces ejection of toxins through sweat, improves blood circulation throughout the body thereby keeping the skin soft and supple.
5 . Keep Yourself Hydrated
Water helps in flushing out the harmful toxins accumulated in your body throughout the day’s activity. It also keeps provides the body the desired ions and minerals that helps to keep you hydrated. This in turns imparts a glow on your skin making it look youthful.
6 . Quit Smoking
Smoking involves squinting the facial muscles un-naturally leading to formation of wrinkles and fine lines, prematurely. In addition it destroys your immunity making you vulnerable to acne or pimple attacks. So if you want to look young, make sure you quit it right away.
So go ahead and inculcate these daily habits into your daily routine and delay the ageing process significantly, but importantly, start from today. Stay Healthy, Stay Happy!
