Many people seem to be living longer these days. This could be due to living a more healthy lifestyle and eating better. Many people want to look as good as they feel.
Although beauty does come from within, there are many things you can do to keep your skin looking healthy and to ward off the hands of time for as long as possible. We will share some of our best anti aging skin care tips to help your skin look its very best.
Natural Ingredients and Home Remedies
Rather than spending all your money on skin care treatments laden with harmful chemicals, you can use natural supplements and ingredients to care for your skin.
Omega 3 Fatty Acid Supplements
One of the very best supplements that you can take is fish oil because of the Omega 3 fatty acids in them. Omega 3s strengthen the cell membranes which boost their ability to hold water, absorb nutrients and remove waste.
It’s important to find a reputable brand of fish oil that is free from environmental contaminants. Some fish oil will go rancid when it is stored improperly. You can’t usually tell if the supplement is rancid until you start taking it and you start getting fishy burps. You get what you pay for and it’s best to find a more expensive brand as they store and ship their items properly.
You may not begin seeing the difference right away. It takes about one to three months to see results but that time will pass whether you take the supplements or not, so why not keep taking them?
Most everyone knows that you need to keep hydrated. Be sure that you drink at least 8 full glasses of water each day. You should start seeing the difference in under a week as your skin tone starts to improve.
Using a humidifier at night in your room while you sleep can help to hydrate your skin as well. The steam and water droplets will moisturize your skin and you’ll wake up with plumper looking skin.
Cleanse and Moisturize After Work and At Night
When you get home for the day, be sure to gently cleanse your face to remove any makeup. You can use coconut oil to quickly remove makeup and then to moisturize your face.
After removing your makeup, rinse with warm water and gently massage coconut oil into your skin. You can apply a thicker layer before bed and leave on while you sleep.
You need to exfoliate at least two to three times per week if you have normal skin. For those with oily skin, you may want to exfoliate your face and skin daily. You can use this scrub to gently remove dead skin from anywhere on your body.
Chia seeds are loaded with antioxidants and help to gently remove dead skin cells. Raw honey will deep clean your skin with its powerful anti-bacterial properties. Green apples will brighten your skin with its alpha hydroxyl acids, flavenoids and polyphenols that work in combination.
Simply blend all of these ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. You may need to add a little water to help smooth it out.
Massage the mixture in a circular motion onto your skin. Let it on for a few minutes and rinse with warm water. Rinse again with cool water to help close your pores.
The sun can damage skin and create premature wrinkles if you don’t protect it. Sunscreen should be used anytime you go out in the sun, not just when you go to the beach.
The most effective sunscreen will have an SPF 30 and can actually help to improve your skin’s texture, fade age spots and reduce wrinkles by about 20% in as little as three months.
The best anti aging skin care tips are those that stay away from products that are filled with toxic chemicals. You need to care for your skin from the inside as well by eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly.
Although most of us think of our face when we think about skin care, the rest of your body’s skin should be cared for too!
