Anti Aging Skin Care Tips

The best thing that anyone can do for their skin is to take proactive steps to avoid things that can cause premature aging. Below are some tips that will help you take care of your skin and prevent premature aging.

As people age, so does your skin. Wrinkles and spots on the skin contribute to what we think when we think of someone as "old". Since people want to search for market products for skin care that are designed for "anti-aging" or "skin rejuvenation" has skyrocketed in recent years.

These products range from "rejuvenate skin creams" to Botox, a chemical that paralyzes really wrinkled skin around the areas, causing them to relax. Both creams and Botox can give good results, although individual results may vary from person to person.

The best thing anyone can do for your skin is to take preventive measures to avoid things that can cause premature aging. Here are some tips to help you take care of your skin and prevent premature aging.

Get enough sleep - Stress and sleep deprivation are common causes of premature aging skin. The average adult gets two to three hours less sleep each night than people a century ago. Sleep is important, and you should try to get at least 8 hours of sleep per day.

Reduce caffeine intake - Too much coffee or energy drinks can have adverse effects on the skin and heart. A little can do a lot, so try to reduce, if possible.

Quit Smoking - The adverse health effects of tobacco consumption have been long documented. Nothing ages a person very early as cigarette smoking does. If you are a smoker, you may make your skin a favor by quitting as soon as possible.

Exercise regularly - Regular exercise increases blood flow to the skin, which has many blood vessels. You do not have to run marathons, but a good exercise three or four times a week, can do much to help keep fit and maintain a youthful appearance.

Drink plenty of fluids - Your body does not need coffee, soda, or alcohol. Your body needs water, and lots of it. The suggestion commonly heard is that drinking 8 glasses of water a day is a good idea. The well-hydrated skin is healthy skin. You do not need to drown, but try to drink plenty of water each day.

Avoid the sun - Tanning is very popular these days and many people want that "healthy glow that comes from a tan. Unfortunately, nothing damages the skin than sunlight. A little sun exposure is healthy because the body makes vitamin D from sunlight, but if you’re going to be in the sun for more than a few minutes, you should use sunscreen, and you should never uses a tanning bed, as prolonged exposure to ultraviolet radiation can cause skin cancer.

Protect your eyes - As the sun rises, do not forget to protect your eyes. You should buy a pair of quality sunglasses and get into the habit of using whenever you are outdoors.

Skin creams, Botox, and other treatments for aging, wrinkled skin and can certainly help postpone the dreaded "being old" but as the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. A few good habits can help you look younger than his age in the coming decades.

Anything you put on your skin may cause problems, depending on what's in it, so it's important to look at the ingredients in ALL the products you use on your face, body and hair.

Research is showing a buildup of chemicals on the skin can cause acne, dryness and skin cancer. Dryness leads to wrinkles and prematurely aging skin.

With so many manufacturers using chemicals in their products, almost any product – cleansers, moisturizers, shampoos, conditioners, hair gels and sunscreens – can be causing breakouts on the face and body and drying out the skin.

Here’s a page that shows more harmful ingredients commonly used in skin and hair care products.

To find chemical-free products, read labels and research ingredients – or start with certified organic ingredients which don’t contain harmful chemicals.



Wonderful skin tips. Good solid advice.

I couldn't agree more with the comments above. I make organic and natural skin care products and my skin has never looked better since I've eliminated the harsh and synthetic chemicals by using natural ingredients such as oils and butters extracted from plants and fruits, natural preservatives, essential oils, etc. I also think doing things like yoga help to relieve the mind, even if temporarily, of stress. Stress is a significant factor in aging that people tend to forget. Drinking herbal decaf teas also help in that arena and teas are high in antioxidants so it packs a punch!
