The Fountain of Youth.
This legend has captured the minds and imaginations of storytellers and their audiences for centuries. And although it may not actually exist, the concept of being able to slow down the aging process is something most of us have considered.
Unfortunately, you might never stumble across a mythical spring. However, there are plenty of habits that you can incorporate into your daily routine to keep your skin at its healthiest and most radiant.
This could potentially cause feelings of dread, but you don’t need a gym membership to keep your skin glowing.
However you decide to do it, being more active promotes the circulation of oxygen through the body, as well as nutrients.
When your body releases toxins through sweat, it results in firmer, clearer skin.
Drink plenty of water. Dehydration affects how your body functions and causes skin to appear dull and dry.
You can still enjoy all of your favorite outdoor activities, just make sure you stay protected.
Use a daily sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, re-apply sunscreen with extended sun exposure, and wear UVA/UVB-blocking sunglasses.
Being proactive will reduce your risk of premature aging, as well as skin cancers.
Research has shown that antioxidants help your body fight disease by reducing potential damage and inflammation. This process also affects the formation of wrinkles.
Consider adding some antioxidant-rich foods to your daily intake, such as spinach, raspberries, blueberries, green tea, and pomegranates.
Also, foods high in healthy fats, such as fish, avocados, and olive oil help to maintain a youthful appearance.
Quality, uninterrupted sleep is essential to the health of your body as a whole. This is when your body repairs itself, and that includes damage done to your skin throughout your day.
