Stress, toxins, poor nutrition, and other lifestyle choices can have negative effects on your skin, making it age quicker and face other problems. But if you change some aspects of your life, you can change the health of your skin.
A Better Diet
Your food choices affect your health, we all know that. But what you may not know is that they can affect your skin’s health as well, and more than just foods that cause acne. Having a healthy diet can help to slow the process of aging.
Foods with antioxidants are one thing that should be added to your diet. Not only do antioxidants help your body fight diseases, but they also help when it comes to the aging process. Antioxidants work to reduce inflammations which can be the leading cause of wrinkles. Antioxidants also help to firm the skin and might actually reverse the effects of aging. There are many different skin benefits that antioxidants can provide. You can learn more about these benefits from this Paula’s Choice Skincare article.
Antioxidants can be found in many different food choices, meaning it is easy to fit them into your diet. Some examples of antioxidants include:
- Green tea
- Dark chocolate
- Purple grapes
- And so many more
Even if you add antioxidants into your diet, you still need to make sure you are eating a nutritious diet. Fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and organic foods are important to add into your diet. A great way to make sure you eat enough healthy food, which can also contain antioxidants, is to eat a rainbow each day. Think about fruits and veggies, that are naturally colored and can easily make a rainbow, they also contain antioxidants which neutralize free radicals. Free radicals cause damage to cell structure, which can make our skin look unhealthy and aged.
Being dehydrated causes your body to function less effectively. Being hydrated can offer many different health benefits, some of which you can find in this blog from Forever Young by Perricone MD.
As for your skin, hydrating can help a lot. The Forever Young blog puts it this way—the skin is the body’s biggest organ and just like the other organs in your body, it needs to stay well hydrated to perform effectively.
Hydration can help to slow the aging process, allowing for your skin to remain elastic, hiding the appearance of wrinkles. Your skin will also have a better appearance, in general, if you stay hydrated. Dehydration can cause your skin to become dry and flaky. Being well hydrated will keep your skin moisturized and plump and will also have a more radiant glow. When the skin is well hydrated, it can rid itself of toxins, which can help give you this glow. With the proper hydration, your skin can become irritated. You skin can even become more oily and acne-prone when you are dehydrated.
Obviously, hydration is important in to the look of your skin. If you are wanting beautiful skin that look younger longer, stay hydrated.
Get Beauty Sleep
Sleep is important for your mental health but also for your skin—we should have known that Sleeping Beauty was onto something. A WebMD article discusses different benefits that getting enough sleep can do for your skin.
There are many different benefits, from fewer wrinkles to brighter and less puffy eyes. While you are sleeping, your skin is busy making new collagen, which is part of the repairing process and help prevent sagging. The WebMD article states that five hours of sleep can cause twice as many fine lines as getting seven hours of sleep. So head to bed earlier and rid your face of those lines!
Sleeping also helps to boost your blood flow, meaning that you will wake up with a better, healthier, and glowing complexion. Skipping out of sleep can cause your skin to become dull. And obviously dark circles form under your eyes when you are tired, so getting enough sleep can help to avoid those bags and help you look more awake.
Working out can help your skin, not directly, but the effects for working out can help your skin. A WebMD article about working out and your skin, says that exercise increases blood flow, which carries oxygen to cells throughout the body, which includes the skin. This flushes cellular debris out of your system, cleansing your skin for the inside.
Stress is another thing than can cause your skin to look worn and aged, but exercising can help to decrease your stress. Different skin conditions can improve when stress levels are decreased, these include things like acne and eczema. A quick workout can help to destress and can overtime improve your skin’s appearance.
While we most likely don’t have to go into detail about this one, it is important that you add sunscreen to your daily routine. Sun exposure can have a huge effect on your skin and can cause much worse problems than wrinkles.
If you have to spend time outside, make sure you wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. While many people still, sadly, ignore this advice, it is important to maintaining healthy and beautiful skin. Sun exposure can cause your skin to age faster, give your sun spots, and may cause skin cancer. Sunscreen should be used daily, especially when you are heading outside. If there is one thing you can do for your skin, it is to apply sunscreen daily. When you are old and gray, you will be glad you took this advice.
These can all help to keep your skin healthy and beautiful. While there are different skin problems that can still occur even after following all of these tips, these can help to keep your skin as healthy as possible and make a bigger difference than you may think.
