As we age, skin loses it plumpness. The texture of the skin slowly loses shape, begins to sag and we lose that soft round glow that is so youthful.
So how do we slow down this process? Some tips courtesy of Probacto show us how…
Eat healthy fats
The concern over fats is outdated and quite frankly a whole bunch of misinformation. Most people think that banishing fats from their diets will lead to a happier waistline, but it will only leave your skin at the short end of the stick. Healthy bodies need healthy fats and your skin needs essential fatty acids (EFA) to look its best.
Exercise makes you lose weight, fight diseases, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. But did you know that exercises can make you younger – by affecting your DNA? When a study was conducted by the King’s College in London on more than 2,400 twins it was discovered that regular exercisers had significantly longer telomeres than their non-active peers. A telomere is a region of DNA at the end of a chromosome that protects the end of the chromosome from deterioration. It’s essentially a biological marker for aging, and the shorter your telomere is, the faster your chromosome will be destroyed. When your chromosome is destroyed, your DNA is effectively fulfilling its cell death cycle and overtime it begins to show through aging.
So how do you stop your telomeres from shortening? Easy, exercise for about 30 minutes a day and you’ll have telomeres that look 10 years younger than someone who exercises for just 16 minutes a week.
The human body does not consider the skin a vital organ like the heart, lungs and brain. So when your body is lacking hydration, rest, or vitamins the skin is the first to exhibit symptoms. That’s why it is extremely important to always stay hydrated because it will keep your skin looking younger and more supple. As we age, our skin slowly loses the ability to retain high levels of water. Our skin-type also determines the level of water it can retain. For these reasons it’s essential to consume a good amount of water a day, most doctors recommend drinking eight, 8oz glasses a day.
