Are you worried about the appearance of your skin as you get older? If so, you are not alone. Most of us want to look as young and as fresh-faced as possible, even when our skin starts to age.
To help stave off the effects of ageing on the skin and keep looking as young as possible, follow these useful tips:
• Protect your skin from the sun. The sun can damage your skin, and as you get older, your skin’s collagen levels drop and this damage can be hard to repair. By covering up in the sun and wearing lots of sunscreen, you can avoid fine lines and wrinkles as well as problems with pigmentation.
• Give up smoking and cut down on alcohol consumption. Both drinking and smoking can be bad for the skin, ageing it faster than normal. If you quit the cigs and reduce your alcohol intake, your skin will stay looking younger for longer.
• Use a moisturiser that is rich in anti-oxidants. Look for moisturisers which contain vitamin C, green tea extract or ferulic acid.
• Eat more fruit and vegetables and foods that are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.
If the effects of ageing have already affected your skin, you can repair any lines or imperfections by undergoing skin rejuvenation treatment, which is a kind of laser treatment.
