How do you maintain youthful looking skin?
The plump, clear and glowing skin of youth, is something most if not all women want to keep throughout life. However things such as environmental factors, hormones, improper care, and aging can cause skin to lose its vitality. However there are a few things that a woman can do to help her maintain beautiful youthful skin.
One thing that women can do to keep their skin looking great is to reduce the effect of environmental factors. Environmental factors such as pollution, overexposure to the sun and cold temperatures can cause skin to age faster. Pollution for example can affect the skin’s ability to retain moisture. Overexposure to the sun can cause sunburn and age spots. Cold temperatures and wind can dehydrate the skin. It is important to properly skin to remove air pollutants that may have settled on the skin. Daily sunscreen that is safe for facial skin should be applied, and skin should be properly covered to help avoid sunburn. This applies even in cold temperatures, as exposed skin can be affected.
Maintaining good skin care via using good facial products is also recommended. Natural cleansers, moisturizers and exfoliants that are not chemical laden are the best choice. There are many for every skin type to help keep skin balanced. Women should look for antioxidant ingredients such as fruit and vegetable extracts and/or Vitamin C and E. These ingredients help to maintain skin collagen, reduce the signs of aging, and rebuild skin fibers and improve the function of skin cells. A diet that is full of fresh fruits and vegetables also helps to keep the body supplied with antioxidant nutrients.
Lastly, adequate water intake as well as avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol intake can help skin to look its best. For more detailed care, seeking a professional and board certified dermatologist is also recommended.
