Anti-aging creams are amazing! In fact, we sell them because of how effective they are. However, your lifestyle habits affect your aging rate. So what steps can you take to slow the rate down? We have a few suggestions!
3 Lifestyle Habits to Slow Down Aging:
- Clean off Your Makeup Before you Sleep: Going to bed with makeup on can age your skin 7 times faster! No matter how tired you are, wipe the makeup off. Keep wipes within arms reach. Take the makeup off and rinse your face with water. Let your pores breathe.
- Cut Down Smoking: Experts agree that smoking accelerates aging, so that smokers look 1.4 years older than nonsmokers, on average. Smoking hampers the blood supply that keeps skin tissue looking supple and healthy. The more you smoke, the higher your aging rate. So just turn it down a notch!
- Drink more Water and Retain the Water: The fact is your skin is made up of cells. Like any other cell in the body are almost entirely made up of water. You simply can’t separate your ‘insides’ from your ‘outsides’ and say they are somehow different. Loss of hydration in the skin shows in all sorts of ways – dryness, tightness, flakiness. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling. Water is essential to maintain skin moisture and is the vehicle for delivering essential nutrients to the skin cells. As water is lost in large quantities every day – it stands to reason you have to replace it somehow. Eat fruits and vegetables, use moisturizer, drink water at intervals. Drink and keep the water.
