Our skin must endure the harshness of the
world -- the sun, the wind, dryness, and
time. Research in recent years has gained
a better understanding of the physical deterioration
that creates "old looking" skin
and of how to partially rejuvenate it.
Here are some tips:
- prevention remains the best medicine - avoid
exposure to harsh conditions that can harm
your skin. For example, wear a sunscreen
even when outside for short time or during
winter. Opt for a sunless tan rather than
damaging your skin with a real tan.
- drink plenty of water and get plenty of rest.
- moisturize or at least apply a cream to reduce the
evaporation of moisture from your skin when
exposed to low humidity.
- use an exfoliant two to four times a month
to shed dead skin cells.
- collagen supports our skin to give it a firm,
young appearance, but when levels of it decline,
wrinkles begin to form. Collagen injections
can temporarily put back some of the structure.
- wrinkle (or anti-wrinkle) creams have been
around for years, but each year sees a crop
of new ones, some armed with growing scientific
insight in the chemical processes that keep
skin youthful. However, results vary greatly,
so take advantage of free trials and money
back offers to see how they may help you.
