Are you getting older, and starting to get interested in serious skincare? Have you started to notice the signs of aging on your face when they weren’t there just a few years ago? Like wrinkles forming, lines, crows feet and sagging skin?
You need a total skincare philosophy. So many people seem to assume that serious skincare involves waiting until they’re getting older then starting to use all those creams and skin care products that they see on the shelves of their local stores.
However that’s not what a serious skincare philosophy involves. If you’re really serious about your skin there’s some simple things you can do to make huge improvements to your skin health that don’t involve buying any skincare products at all.
The first thing to do for the best skincare is to start young. It’s way better to start paying attention to your skin health at 20 than at 60. There are so many things you can do at 20 to make sure that your skin looks great at 60.
Here’s the most important things you can do to maximise the health of your skin to make sure your skin looks vibrant, youthful and healthy for as long as possible.
1. Don’t smoke. Smoking is one of the worst things you can do to your skin. It causes all sorts of skin problems. It causes vascular problems which can contribute to poor skin health, and it contributes to the loss of collagen and elastin in your skin that, in itself, will make you look older. Anyone interested in serious skincare must avoid smoking.
2. Protect your skin from sunburn. Sunburn is one of the worst things you can do to your skin, along with smoking. UV, and sunburn, which is overexposure to UV, damages the structure of your skin.
3. Stay healthy. Notice I’ve used the term “skin health” a few times. That’s because great looking skin is healthy skin, and poor looking skin is unhealthy skin. And if you stay healthy yourself your skin should stay healthy too.
So all the normal stuff that you’ve read about staying healthy applies to maintaining skin health. Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, drink plenty of water and exercise regularly.
A fat unhealthy and unfit person who lives on a diet of pizzas burgers will have trouble maintaining vibrant healthy looking youthful skin. Because health is a total body thing. concentrated
However chances are if you’re reading this you’re not 20 because at 20 so many women aren’t thinking about skincare. Or about health in general. After all, you only need to get serious about that stuff in 30 more years don’t you?
So if you’re, say, 50, and thinking that it’s time to pay some attention to a serious skincare philosophy, what do you do? You do everything you’ve just read. It’s never too late to make a difference to your health, or your skin health. Stop smoking, start eating right, exercise, stay out of the sun and you’ve started on the path to a serious skincare revolution. You can’t necessarily reverse past skin damage, but if you’re serious you can certainly start making improvements.
