Regular exercise keeps the blood circulating, benefiting the body in many ways, including adding energy and additional nourishment to the skin, so not only will you feel younger, but you’ll look younger, too.
2. Keep hydrated
Water helps transport oxygen and nutrients in our body. It also makes our skin look good and keeps our digestive system and internal organs functioning normally. Dehydration can cause our body to stop getting rid of waste products and so the body can be at risk of developing various illnesses. Therefore, it is important to stay hydrated, add water-rich vegetables and fruits in our routine to improve your water intake.
3. Healthy diet
Fresh fruits and vegetables are good for your skin. They are natural source of minerals (e.g. vitamins, zinc, selenium, calcium, sodium, antioxidants and more) and vital for your body. A healthy diet keeps your skin fresh, hydrated and radiant. Eating good food also prevents you from developing different diseases.
4. Sun protection
Sun exposure can cause early skin ageing. Ultraviolet rays from the sunlight affects skin structure. It can also cause brown skin spots, wrinkles and pigmentation. Use extra precaution when you plan your outdoor activities to avoid overexposure to the ultraviolet rays.
5. Quit smoking
Smoking is not only a serious threat to our health it can also cause premature wrinkling. It constricts blood vessels and stops the flow of blood, depleting the skin of oxygen and essential nutrients. According to dermatologists, for those of us who smoke, our skin looks (on average) 1.4 times older than that of non-smokers. Smoking also brings high risk for surgical procedures and slows down wound healing, delaying recovery and increasing complications. Worth noting is that some plastic surgeons have been known to refuse undertaking cosmetic surgeries until patients have quit.
