In scientific terms, anti-aging is defined as to slowing, preventing, or reversing the aging process in the human body. Though, so far, there is not any proven and available medical technology that slows or reverses aging in humans. For some, anti-ageing is a myth. According to them, Ageing is a natural process that cannot be prevented in any way.
While the aging signs of internal organs are masked from the human eye, the skin provides the first obvious marks of the passing time. There are several signs of ageing that one can experience. A few of those signs are as follows.
- Sagging skin
- Lines & wrinkles
- Dark spots
- Dry skin
- Dull glow-less skin
- Patchy skin
- Open pores
According to research, one should start the anti-ageing skin treatment in their late 20’s or early 30’s to push off wrinkles as long as possible. One should keep in mind that wrinkle-removal products delay more wrinkles from showing up, but they won’t clear the ones that are already there. So, it’s better to start early, to get more protection in delaying the ageing process. Though ageing is a natural process that happens over the passage of time, there are some tips that, if implemented in regularly in daily life by some, may help to bring drastic changes that one can experience.
Protect skin from the sun: Limit the time spent in the sun, especially during midday. You can cover your skin by wearing protective clothing, long-sleeved shirts or gloves, brimmed hats, and sunglasses. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
Wear sunscreen: When choosing skin care products, make a good choice of selecting the ones with built-in sunscreen which blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Research shows that people who use broad-spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis experience 24% less skin ageing than those who use sunscreen intermittently. So, don’t forget to wear sunscreen!
Topical Creams: Dermatologists may recommend over-the-counter or prescription creams to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Anti-aging products might contain ingredients like retinol, alpha and beta hydroxy acids (AHA and BHA), and vitamins A, C & E. These help to eliminate the dead skin cells and boost skin regeneration, so one can enjoy a smoother texture.
Manage your stress: Stress can have serious implications on the skin as well. It is important to maintain a natural balance and reduce the production of stress hormones. Try to de-stress through exercise, meditation, or massage. Regular workouts can increase immunity, and strength and improve circulation which can help in relaxation as well.
Get Adequate Sleep: When one doesn’t get enough sleep, the body releases excess cortisol, a hormone that breaks down skin cells. That’s why it’s important to get enough rest which helps to keep the skin and body healthy.
Moisturize: Moisturizing the skin helps to improve the appearance of the skin. It helps to hydrate, nourish and plump the skin, making the wrinkles and lines less visible. This is especially important since the skin gets drier as one gets older and with the help of the moisturizer, it temporarily helps the skin to stay hydrated.
Stay hydrated: Drinking water is essential for good health. Water can keep the body stay hydrated on the inside and keep the skin healthy. Always drink 6 to 8 glasses a day to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Tobacco: As described earlier, tobacco damages the collagen and elastin fibers that give the skin its elasticity and strength. When the skin doesn’t receive the oxygen it needs, it also limits the nutrients like Vitamins A, C & E, etc. Alcohol is another factor that contributes to the development of wrinkles. Hence it is better to avoid smoking and drinking than to experience premature wrinkles.
Switch your sleeping position: Some wrinkling on the face can be caused by the position that one sleeps in. It’s caused by the face pressing against the pillow, in the same way, every night. This is known as “compression.” Over time, this compression makes the skin weaker in a few places which leads to wrinkles formation. This can be prevented or slowed down by sleeping on the back.
Regular Face Wash: Take time to wash your face at night at least for around three to five minutes. When one leaves makeup on the face, the skin absorbs most of it. Avoid vigorous scrubbing. Avoid over-washing the face as water might strip the natural barrier oils and moisture that protects the skin against wrinkles.
Eat a healthy diet: Nutrition is important for health. Food rich in vitamins, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, collagen, etc. should be a must in a daily diet. Green leafy vegetables should be a mainstay in the diet as well as they are rich in vitamins and minerals.
