10 tips to take care of your skin

The skin is a living organ that changes over time.

As we get older, the skin stops producing as much collagen as before which causes it to become less elastic and more fragile. Decreased production of natural oil makes the skin dry and appear wrinkled. When these happen, the skin is said to have started aging.

Skin aging cannot be avoided but with some changes in lifestyle and extra care, it can be delayed.

Here are some anti-aging skincare tips for you:

Cleanse your skin gently

Do not scrub your skin like you would scrub your clothes. Scrubbing the skin irritates it which makes it age faster. Exfoliate your skin gently and with extra care to remove dead skin cells.

Moisturize your skin always

Always ensure your skin is moisturized to avoid skin dryness. Moisturizing should be done on wet skin to lock in moisture.

Never step out without your sunscreen

Ultraviolet exposure from the sun can cause skin cancer. Make it a rule to never leave your house without applying sunscreen that is broad-spectrum, SPF 30, or higher and water resistant, even when there is no sun out.

Drink water

Water is essential in every aspect of life. The last thing your skin needs is to be dehydrated. Help yourself by drinking at least 16 cups of water daily.

Limit stress

One of the fastest ways for your skin to age is through stress. It also causes wrinkles. Always manage your stress level and you can also engage in some destressing activities.

Cut back on sugar

As if the risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disaster is not enough, excess sugar in diet basically damages the skin.

Take collagen supplements

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and it promotes hair, skin and nail health. Unfortunately, as we grow older, the natural production of this protein in the body depletes. By taking collagen supplements, the body can absorb the supplement and stimulate the natural production of the protein.

Get facial massage routinely

Facial massage is not only enjoyable, it also helps to release tension and increase circulation thereby keeping the skin healthy and vibrant.

Get enough sleep

Inadequate sleep can wreck serious havoc on your skin, including eyebags. Prioritize your sleep and get a standard eight hours of restful sleep daily. It allows your skin enough time to heal and repair itself.

Reduce salt in your diet

Excess sodium in your diet can suck the moisture out of your skin and leave it dry and dull. If you do not want your skin to age pretty fast, it's time to reduce your salt intake in food and junks.
