Want to look as youthful as Demi Moore when you’re older? While some signs of aging skin are inevitable, there’s a lot you can do to look your best at any age. And taking good care of yourself is the most important step in your anti-aging skin care program.
Many of the external causes of aging skin are determined by the health and lifestyle decisions you make every day. Making unhealthy choices can cause prematurely aging skin, which makes you look older, faster. An important part of any anti-aging skin care program is to know what you may be doing that is harming your skin and speeding up your skin’s aging process.
The 7 habits that contribute to aging skin are : smoking or direct exposure to cigarette smoke, excessive sun exposure, exposure to cold weather, stress, lack of exercise, alcohol use, and lack of sleep.
You can avoid signs of aging skin like dryness, wrinkles and uneven skin tone, by avoiding these seven habits that make skin age faster.
What happens to skin as it ages?
As skin ages, it becomes dry and loose. As you get older, your skin produces less collagen. Collagen is what keeps your skin pulled tightly around your body, so having less means that skin loses some of its youthful elasticity. Your skin may even sag, causing wrinkles.
When people get older, skin also produces less oil than it previously did. This will cause your skin to be drier than before, so if you used to wash your face twice a day, you may want to only wash at night. Also be sure to use a moisturizer afterwards — this can help slow the aging process.
How much time your skin spends unprotected in the sun effects how quickly your skin ages. The sun can cause a decrease in collagen and uneven skin tone, so avoid this by using a sunscreen when outdoors. The sun’s UV rays break down collagen and make the skin cells especially vulnerable to age spots, broken capillaries, and rough patches of skin that do not respond to topical skincare treatments. Stress can also take a toll on skin. Stress produces a hormone called cortisol, which decreases collagen production.
To keep your skin looking young, eat less cooked foods and eat more fruits, vegetables and unsaturated fats. Eating foods cooked at high temperatures can cause inflammation and also trigger a state known as ‘glycation’ where toxins are released into the body at a high rate. Exercise also helps your skin by facilitating oxygen flow to keep it firm.
