Every woman, and man - though they might not admit it - have asked themselves, “How do I keep my skin looking young?” While we would love to tell you we’ve discovered the Fountain of Youth is actually the coffee pot at work and you’re doing everything right, unfortunately, it’s not that simple.
While hanging around the coffee pot at work might not be the Fountain of Youth, the water cooler is (sort of). Staying hydrated and drinking plenty of water will not only help you feel great, but will help you look great too. Hydrated skin is firmer and more supple, whereas dehydrated skin can be full of fine lines and flakes. Water also helps to flush toxins from your body, so refilling that water bottle a few times every day will also help to keep skin clear from adult acne.
Find Healthy Ways To Handle Stress
A few years ago, a story circulated about a woman who hadn’t smiled in over 40 years in an attempt to avoid wrinkles. Without getting overly scientific, any repeated use of facial muscles forms grooves in the cells underneath your facial skin, causing those areas to lose elasticity, and that includes both smiling and frowning. However, we really like when people smile, and we’ve all heard the sentiment, “It takes more muscles to frown than to smile.” So find ways to get rid of that stress that is causing you to frown (try meditation, going for walks, or treating yourself to a weekly massage). Want some anecdotal proof that stress causes aging? Check out these photos of presidents at the start and end of their presidency - and invest in an anti-aging skin care regimen.
Limit Your Time In The Sun
Ultraviolet rays from the sun or tanning beds cause the collagen that keeps your skin supple to break down. You can fight this by wearing an SPF facial moisturizer every day and wearing a hat if you’re going to be out in the blazing sun for long periods of time.
Fill Your Body With Skin-Healthy Foods
Fueling your body with healthy food, especially those high in vitamin C, can help your skin stay young. Vitamin C helps to promote the development of collagen, so loading up on oranges, red peppers, tomatoes, and leafy greens can all help your skin.
