At 30, you finally possess all that you wished for since you were a teenager! A job that brings a smile on your face and a home that gives you the desired comfort and happiness - it’s a phase that you dreamt of always, isn’t it? But do you feel the same confidence about your skin? If you have already started worrying about wrinkles, fine lines and age spots, then you should start treating yourself right away. Skin ageing like any other natural phenomenon can be easily tackled by making some simple yet significant changes in your lifestyle. After all, who doesn’t wish to age gracefully!
Eat right: No matter what you do, the first signs of ageing appear too early on your skin. Most of us are unaware of the fact that by 30s, skin cell regeneration as well as production of hormones slow down in our body. Now you can turn back the clock by 10 years by following a healthy and balanced diet. Studies reveal certain nutrients may prevent or even reverse skin ageing for example fruits with high levels of Vitamin C. Apart from these leafy vegetables like spinach, flaxseed oil and fish are also good for the skin. Most important: say goodbye to caffeine and alcohol. Also remember to eat on time and not to skip meals!
Follow a skin care regime: If you have been staying away from a daily skin cleansing programme, then you are going the wrong way for sure! A few things such as using a good facial cleanser to remove all the dirt at the end of the day or wiping your face clean of makeup before going to bed at night can ensure healthy and youthful skin. Also, choose products wisely and stay away from brands that comprise harmful substances.
It’s time to rejoice as Pond’s Age Miracle has introduced an entire range of anti-ageing products that enhance the moisture levels in the skin resulting in radiant and younger looking skin. The Cell ReGen Facial Foam not only helps in removing oil and dirt, but also dead cells locked up deep inside your skin.
Fight environmental hazards: Pollution and sun exposure are the most harmful for your skin especially if you are in your 30’s. A sunburn or tan is the sign of skin damage as ultraviolet rays are capable of breaking down the collagen in your skin resulting in wrinkles and sagging! Keep your skin supple and young by following these reminders:
• Cover your face with a scarf when stepping out
• Drink lots of water to avoid skin dehydration
• Apply a good sunscreen when out in the sun
Start exercising: A regular exercise routine not only aids in maintaining a good heart and body in general, but also younger looking skin! Exercising helps in blood circulation in the skin cells resulting in removal of harmful toxins from the body. Before going to bed every night, gently tap your facial skin with your fingertips, underneath the eyes and cheeks till your neck.
Get enough sleep: Did you know the first place hit by all that stress and lack of sleep is your face? Don’t underestimate the significance of getting enough sleep as it gives your skin cells a chance to repair the damage caused by other external factors. Remember the cure to those puffy eye bags is nothing but sleep. A good seven hours of sleep in the night is enough for younger looking skin.
