We know that wrinkles and aging is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear them with pride. Your skin always need some TLC, no matter how long you’ve been around. As you get older, your skin gets more and more delicate, which means it needs even more attention. But taking care of your skin goes beyond applying moisturizer. Here are our best tips for taking care of mature skin!
Fish Oil Supplements
Fish oil is a highly recommended supplement to be taking as you mature, especially for women. It’s anti-inflammatory properties helps your hair grow, your skin glow, and the elasticity say disappearing faster than it needs to.
Avoid White Sugar
Processed sugar speeds of the aging process by wearing the collagen in your skin, aka the part of your skin that keeps it plump and full. Instead, opt for brown sugar or a natural alternative like date syrup!
Eat those Omega-3s
Fish such as halibut, salmon, sardines, tuna, and trout are rich in fatty acids that help to keep skin nourish, plump, and glowing. If you aren’t a huge fan of seafood, opt for a supplement instead. But this really isn’t something you should be skipping!
Catch Some Zzzz’s
Getting the recommended amount of sleep is essential for everyone, no matter what kind of skin you have. Getting plenty of sleep reduces stress, strengthens memory, and gives your skin that extra boost of energy to fight off daily pollutions.
Remember those Super Foods
On your next trip to the grocery store, make sure to pick up some super foods that will keep up the elasticity in your skin and keep you energized to take on the day! These include salmon, walnuts, spinach, avocado, berries, and of course, your vegetables of choice.
Even if exercising means walking once around the block or running for 30 minutes on the treadmill, doing it 3-4 times a week can make a huge difference to the aging process. It keep your body going, even thought you might feel more tired than normal. Exercising is one of those long-term beneficial parts of your day.
Wear your Vitamin C
Creams and serums with vitamin C help to raise collagen production and gives your skin an extra layer of protection against the sun. It already reduces signs of skin damage and dark spots.
Never Forget Sunscreen
As you age, your skins’ defenses age too. Wearing sunscreen helps protect the skin against wrinkles, skin cancer, and allows for some repair of damaged skin!
Although a martini a day during retirement is tempting, drinking too much alcohol or sugary drinks will make your skin dull and make you look way older than you’d wish to be seen. Drinking 8 cups of water a day will keep those fine lines at bay.
If you were on a deserted island with only one option for a skin care product, choose a moisturizer. Much like sunscreen, moisturizer acts as a protective shield for your skin. It sinks in to those pores to not only give your skin that much needed glow and hydration, but to also keep your skin youthful and radiant.
Keep your Brain Sharp
Staying connected, whether that be through reading at a cafe or a date with friends keeps your brain sharp. Try not to isolate yourself for long periods of time. The more you step out into the world, the younger you’ll feel.
Multivitamins are your BFFs
This is the easiest way to ensure that you’re getting all the necessary daily nutrients! Consult your doctor before taking any supplements.
Exercise those Face Muscles
Although this might not be the something you’d ever thought to do, exercising your facial muscles twice a day is like a free facial for your skin. This will help keep your face toned, reduce wrinkles, and give your skin that extra touch of rejuvenation.
