The key to a youthful appearance is young-looking skin, but sadly, the signs of age begin to show up in the face as early as the 20s. As oily teenage skin begins to dry, fine lines around the eyes and mouth begin to develop. In the 30s, the skin is beginning to lose elasticity and in addition to fine wrinkles, sagging and puffiness around the eyes may begin to appear. In the forties, fine lines around the eyes and mouth deepen, becoming more prominent. In the 50s and 60s, the appearance of aging is exacerbated by more noticable sun spots and loosening of the skin under the jaw. Despite these facts, many women maintain a very youthful appearance well into their later years. How do they do it?
There is no better defense against the signs of aging than sun protection. UV rays damage the skin, and the damage is cumulative, sometimes revealing itself only after many years of being out in the sun. A high-quality sunblock should be applied even on cloudy days, and exposure to direct sunlight should be avoided if possible. Wide-brimmed hats and umbrellas can also help to keep harmful UV radiation from damaging the skin.
Nutrition has a profound effect on the skin. Fresh fruits and vegetables contribute fluids and anti-oxidants that keep the skin moisturized and healthy. Dark-colored fruits like the blueberries, red grades, and cherries in Jeunesse Reserve are especially high in antioxidants that protect skin cells from damage from free radicals. Maintaining a healthy weight is also good for the skin, as gaining and losing can affect the skin’s elasticity. Staying hydrated, getting plenty of rest, and exercising regularly all contribute to youthful and healthy-looking skin.
A healthy skincare routine involves washing the face with a gentle soap, exfoliating occasionally, and moisturizing. In addition, there are some products on the market that can significantly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s best to stick to high-quality, reputable skincare products like the Luminesce series, which has been effective for many people.
Following these tips from an early age can help delay the onset of signs of aging. In addition, it’s never too late to get younger-looking skin by improving lifestyle habits and using the right skin care products.
