No one looks forward to the ways our skin breaks down and changes with age, but there are ways to help your skin stay looking younger longer. When you’re young, elastin and collagen fibers in your skin helps keep your face smooth. It gives your skin the ability to bounce back. When you get older, though, those fibers begin to break down, which is what causes skin to sag. If you treat your body and your skin right, however, you can minimize damage done to your sin and keep your face looking younger and fresher.
TIPS TO PREVENT YOUR SKIN FROM SAGGING
The following tips will help you to take better care of your skin to prevent damage and prevent premature skin sagging:
No matter the time of year, no matter how cool it is outside, prolonged exposure to the sun damages your skin. Sunscreen will do wonders for preventing all manner of damage to your skin. Use it daily. Use it any time you’ll be in the sun for any amount of time. It’s also advisable to stay in the shade when the sun is at its strongest, between 11 AM and 2PM.
In addition to damaging your lungs and other organs, smoking effects your outsides as well. Smoking 20 cigarettes a day can make you look 10 years older than your peers.
Eat a Balanced Diet
Processed foods aren’t good for your skin, so try to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diets. To keep your face looking smooth, get more omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, phytoestrogens and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) into your diet. These help to regulate degenerative processes and inflammation in the body. Raisins, mango, chickpeas, eggs, and brazil nuts are also said to help fight off facial sagging. Snacks like peanuts, cheese, celery, and dried fruit are also good for your skin.
Weight gain and loss can stretch your skin, which weakens those elastin fibers we mentioned earlier. The strain of carrying excess weight is hard on your skin and other body parts. Exercise regularly, but don’t overdo it. Don’t lose more than 1 to 2 pounds weekly.
Follow a Skin Care Regimen
Certain products can restore your skin and prevent sagging. Creams that contain vitamin A, also known as retinol or tretinoin creams, help your skin produce new collagen. These creams firm your skin and even correct uneven skin tone. Skin can also be treated regularly using products that contain alpha-hydroxy acids, such as glycolic acid, or estrogen cream. These can help to improve signs of aging.
