Aging of the skin just happens, but we sometimes want to give the skin a helping hand to prevent it and slow down the process. As we age, the skin loses its elasticity. The production of collagen slows down and this can cause wrinkles, the skin also becomes more dry and fragile. Making it extra important to take good care of your skin. Here are 5 tips to keep your skin young and healthy:
1. Consume collagen powder
Collagen gives elasticity and firmness to the skin and improves your bones, hair, nails and joints. It is an important protein in the body that weakens as we age. Taking collagen, often in powder form, can balance these deficiencies. It also has a moisturizing effect and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Something we recommend to start using at the age of 25.
2. Add SPF to your routine
Sun exposure is one of the biggest culprits for the skin. This accelerates the aging of the skin, making it extra important to apply spf 30 or 50 every day. Even when the sun is not shining, UV rays are still harmful when it is cloudy.
3. Use Retinol
Retinol, also known as retinoids or vitamin A, is one of the most well-known anti-aging ingredients. It has skin-repairing abilities and also promotes collagen production. Please note, to slowly introduce this product into your routine. Start with every other day and see how your skin reacts to it.
4. Consume vitamin-rich foods
We’ve said it before, but “you are what you eat”. The best ingredients to consume for healthy and glowing skin have high anti-inflammatory properties and are high in antioxidants. This has a positive effect on the elasticity and aging process of the skin. Foods We Recommend:
