Combat Aging, be a Skinvestor

Truth hurts, we are not forever 21. However, it does not mean we have to lose our youthful glow, especially when it comes to our skin. The skin is the largest body organ, thus we really have to take care of it, regardless of our age. In this article, you would know some tips on investing for a healthy, happy and supple skin.

Try massaging argan, sunflower or sesame oil around your body. Not only it leaves your skin moisturized and hydrated, but also gets blood circulating properly. These natural oils also clean away dead skin cells, thus making your skin renewed. Wearing topical creams with vitamin C and SPF for UV ray protection would also help skin repair itself from sun hear damage. Make sure to have a solid daily night skin care routine which comprises of a right cleanser toner, eye cream, serum and moisturizer. One can also incorporate clay masks once or twice a week for deeper cleansing. Eye creams are extremely important because face creams can irritate your eye area.

Eye creams are made specifically for this delicate area of our face and made to work wonders for smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. When we age, exfoliation is key to see more of the new and fresh skin. Both face and body should be exfoliated weekly. Coconut oil mixed with baking soda and brown sugar is one of the best homemade exfoliation mixture for the body. For make-up, invest for the right primer for your skin type and tone. Primers, especially illuminating ones contain special particles that makes lines less noticeable. A good BB cream also works for achieving a perfect base without caking.

To fight skin aging from within, supplements can be taken daily. One of which is fish oil, which improves heart and immune system to boost healthy skin and hair. In choosing the right fish oil brand, opt for those with labels indicating “molecularly distilled for purity.” This means the company did not use pesticides in extracting the fish oil. Drinking collagen water can also prevent skin from aging. Collagen is released by our body to provide structural support to our skin. As we age, collagen levels decrease making our skin sag. To counter this, buy products with collagen. In addition, increase intake of food with malic acid and natural antioxidants such as fruits and vegetables. Make sure to always get enough sleep and water intake too not just only for skin, but for overall health.

Combat stress away

Stress has been proven to cause various skin problems. Hives, eczema and sagging of skin are main effects of too much stress. To avoid this, one should massage away stress. For those with a higher budget, opt for a chiropractor that can move blocked energy and eliminate muscle spasm, making you feel younger inside and out. Relaxing activities such as yoga, pilates and tai chi can combat cortisol levels, the so-called stress hormone.

Undergo procedures with a trusted skin clinic/dermatologist

If you want to reduce wrinkles permanently, consult your trusted dermatologist about it. One of the best solutions is Venus Freeze. Venus Freeze is a non-invasive treatment that is highly effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Botox and fillers are also effective. Botox will freeze smile lines along the eye area and fillings will plump your cheeks up for a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Botox also decrease the appearance of “marionette lines” in the nose area.

Some women also opt to plump their lips too for a more seductive look.
