4 Ways You Can Reduce Premature Skin Aging

As we age, our skin ages with us. And as much as we may not like it, the development of wrinkles and lines are a natural part of the aging process.

However, though we can’t stop the wheel of time from turning, there are certain steps we can take to keep our skin from aging prematurely, and to help it maintain a healthy, youthful glow.

Why Does Our Skin Age?

As we grow older, a combination of declining cell renewal and less collagen and elastin production leads to a duller complexion and the appearance of wrinkles and lines in our skin as it loses its elasticity and firmness.

What Can I Do to Prevent Signs of Aging?

Luckily, there are several things you can do to prevent premature signs of aging.

● Wear sunscreen. The importance of wearing sunscreen cannot be overstated. One of the main causes of skin damage is UV rays. Even on cloudy days, these rays can penetrate your skin. We recommend wearing sunscreen year-round to protect your skin from any unnecessary damage.
● Exercise frequently. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, exercising frequently improves circulation and boosts your immune system, leading to healthier looking skin.
● Moisturize. By applying a moisturizer, you help to keep your skin hydrated, leading to a more youthful appearance.
● Utilize anti-aging products. Though they can’t stop the aging process completely, anti-aging products have many benefits, including reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helping the skin to maintain its elasticity and firmness.
