Preventing skin aging in the face

Perhaps one of the greatest fears of people is to age, not in terms of their chronological age but their skin age or how old they appear to other people. The face, being the part that is often seen by people, is a top priority.

Although there are products out there that can help slow down the aging process of the facial skin, you can actually prevent aging through simple and what is more FREE means.

Here are some of those ways.

1. Sleep

Sleep refreshes the body. In fact, it is through sleep that the body regenerates itself and rests for the day. As a standard, an adult should be able to sleep for about 8-9 hours at night. This is why when we lack sleep, our eyes will have dark circles surrounding them.

We will also look tired.. and we will feel it to. The face is the first part of the body where the lack of sleep will be shown. In addition to the dark circles, we will also develop eye bags and sagging skin, which can age your look from 20s to 40s.

2. Eat right

Eating the right kind of food can help the skin fight aging. Balanced diet is the key and also having lots of fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins and minerals. Vitamins like Vitamin C and E is essential in skin renewal and maintenance. Also, eating healthy will give you a healthy glow.

3. Relax

Life can be stressful. There is nothing you can do about that but you can certainly do something about the way you respond to stress. Stress, in actuality can be made lessened if you maintain a positive attitude.
You can also attend meditation classes like yoga or any gentle exercise that will help lessen your stress level and center your body. Relaxed muscles will help the skin prevent wrinkles and frown lines.

4. Remove make-up

This is actually only for the girls unless the guys are in professions that need make-up. As a rule of thumb, you shouldn’t go to sleep without removing your make-up as this can contribute to faster aging of the facial skin.

5. Smile

There is something in a smile that gives you a healthy young glow. Plus, it takes more muscles to smile than to frown so it is better to keep those lips upwards. Smiling also relaxes the muscles of the face and even the whole body, preventing the development of wrinkles so early in life.
