Anti Aging Skin Care Guide - What is Good For Your Skin and What is Hazardous
Eat right, drink right and exercise. Sounds like healthcare advice, but eating lots of fruits and vegetables will improve the moisture content of your skin, as well as improving your overall health. Drinking lots of purified water and other healthy fluids will also improve moisture; remember moist equals firm and elastic.
Toning the body tones your skin. There are special neck exercises that reduce sagging. If you aren't used to exercising, take it slow. Start with light weights and build up. Building a little muscle can go a long way in tightening the skin.
The sun is our friend, but too much exposure causes excessive dryness and wrinkles. The most common advice from any anti aging skin care guide is to use sunscreen. You won't get that advice from me.
Stay in the shade. Wear a big floppy hat and large sunglasses. Use only broad spectrum "sun-block" with zinc oxide, not sunscreen, on exposed areas when you are in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
Find an anti aging skin care treatment that contains vitamin B5 and lots of antioxidants. Antioxidants like coenzyme Q10 are quickly depleted when exposed to UV light from the sun. Why? UV radiation increases production of free radical molecules. Radicals cause damage like wrinkles, age spots and cancerous growths.
The most effective anti aging skin care treatment contains lots and lots of different antioxidants to fight free radical damage. The best ones even correct damage that has already occurred.
Something you don't often see in an anti aging skin care guide is a list of hazardous compounds to avoid. I'm concerned about my overall health, as I'm sure you are, but I'm not about to use anything that can cause the appearance of black bumps all over my face and body. How about you?
Anti aging skin care treatment for lightening dark circles or uneven pigmentation typically contains hydroquinone. In some cases, the ingredient causes the appearance of these little black bumps that never go away. The condition has a long name that I'm not even going to try to include. Just remember to avoid hydroquinone.
Here's your anti aging skin care guide of compounds to avoid: royal jelly, argireline, petrolatum, mineral oils, paraffin wax, oxybenzone, parabens, and fragrance. I'm sure it's not a complete list, but this will help a great deal.
Here's the anti aging skin care treatment to look for: Functional Keratin, Wakame Kelp, coenzyme Q10, natural vitamin E and grape seed oil. There are other beneficial botanical extracts, but with Functional Keratin and Wakame Kelp alone, you will increase skin cell proliferation and elasticity. The other ingredients provide moisture and protection from free radical damage.
That completes my little anti aging skin care guide. I hope it helps you look younger for life.
