The skin care aisle in your department store is probably full of a huge assortment of beauty items. They all promise to help you with moisture, acne, fine lines, wrinkles, exfoliation, and so forth. Many of those products expensive. And some have some questionable ingredients in them. Many skin care products contain parabens, for instance, and parabens are increasingly being avoided by many because while they do extend the shelf life of many health and beauty products, there are big concerns about breast cancer risks being elevated because of them. Another reason why so many people look to more natural remedies.
When it comes to younger looking skin, there are many things you can do to slow down the aging process.
Foods like blueberries are known for their antioxidant properties and many say they’re one of the keys to longevity and a plethora of other health benefits. Our Chaga mushrooms are also naturally high in antioxidants. You can nourish your skin from the outside with a Chaga skin cream or nourish from the inside out with a cup of Chaga tea or a Chaga supplement.
Food can be a friend to your skin. It can also be a foe. Avoid too much sugar and processed foods. Many people notice breakouts and dull-looking skin when they’ve been eating unhealthily for a period of time!
Limit Sun Exposure
Yes, a few minutes daily of the sun is good for vitamin D absorption but continuous exposure unprotected will lead to premature aging and will elevate your risk of skin cancer.
Get Enough Sleep
Burning the candle at both ends really can age you faster. Beauty sleep is not a myth! Do make sleep a priority and it can help with your complexion. You need deep sleep, too. We go through multiple sleep cycles in a good night’s sleep and you need to devote 7-8 hours of time to sleep every single night.
A Good Skin Care Regimen
Do you regularly moisturize? Remember to remove cosmetics before bed? Do you occasionally exfoliate? These can help you facilitate the renewal process so that your skin can retain moisture and elasticity — keeping it looking younger and healthier.
Drink Plenty of Water
Drinking plenty of water will equate to healthier, moister, and younger looking skin. Conversely, too much caffeine and alcohol can take away from a healthy glow and dehydrated skin doesn’t retain a look of wellness or youth.
Sleeping on Your Back
Sleeping on your side is often recommended as a way to avoid facial wrinkles and creases. If you always sleep on the same side you may notice creases on one side of your face. If you can’t sleep on your back try switching to a satin pillowcase. It will not only have the potential to help with your face but will help you avoid extreme ‘bed head’, too.
Genetics definitely play a part in looking younger longer, too, but there’s no reason why you can’t help things work in your favor with good wellness and lifestyle habits.
