Anti-aging tips for your skin—
Don't let the weather age you. Some days it feels like it's wrinkling and crinkling--we all know that summer sunshine is not great for your skin but neither is a hot and dry office or winterized home (fall isn't far away!). There are simple ways to take care of your skin from the inside out.
Water, water, water
Drink lots and lots of liquid—preferably water. Everyone still recommends 8 glasses a day if you can do it. Tea and other liquids help, too!
You've probably noticed that your skin feels more springy when there's more humidity. This doesn't mean you can relax. Always wear a high SPF sunscreen outside in the summer and, even if you're in a damp climate, still moisturize often.
Sun damage when driving
Some people don't know that skin can still suffer sun damage through glass--in front of windows or when you're driving in winter and summer—so use an SPF cream on all exposed skin. When you're outside, wear a hat whenever you can.
In the winter, think humidifier. Even a small unit in the bedroom will help you to avoid the long-term effects of weather and dryness on your skin.
The best anti-aging tip is to exercise. Being on the go more often than you're sitting helps to make sure all your cells and functions are in motion. Nowadays experts recommend never stay sitting longer than an hour at a time but many of the latest studies say no longer than 10 minutes--even if you just stand up and wriggle. Even a short stretch period (the 7th inning stretch) serves an excellent purpose to keep your muscles active and functioning and blood flowing.
So exercise, exercise, and exercise to battle aging— get up off the couch or your chair often to get a drink of water. Take a peek outside or talk about the weather. Chat with your colleagues or neighbors—any excuse to get up and move
Maintaining activity is a disease fighter—from cancers to cardiovascular. And research shows that social activity of any kind may help prevent dementia and with depression. The combination of exercise and social interaction is excellent—so keep moving and start talking for anti-aging benefits—to your body, skin, and mental condition.
How to moisturize for anti-aging
Use mucho moisturizers—on your face and your body. Slather it on while you're still damp dry—just blot your skin lightly with a towel and then use your lotions and potions.
It's a good idea to keep a body cream or moisturizer next to the shower or bath, so you can give your skin a drink each and every time you emerge. I recommend my all-natural epiCARE™ range of skincare products (of course!).
Also, don't forget to exfoliate regularly—this deep cleanses your skin and makes it more receptive to moisturizers.
Hint— “This is another excellent reason to use the WARSH Cloth twice daily for a healthy complexion—because it's a natural exfoliant. Not only will it clean your skin of makeup and grime. All you need is water for a fresh, receptive skin and cleaning with only water means you're not adding cleanser or soap chemicals that dry out your face. Your complexion will thank you for it... and so will the planet.”
