Forever Young: 4 Tips to Maintain Youthful, Glowing Skin
In your early 20s and already feeling the pressure to maintain your youthful looks? We feel you too! Although no one can control the process of ageing, we can control our lifestyle and how we take care of our skin. Even in your 20s, skincare and lifestyle is an important part of maintaining youthful skin in years to come.
Here are 3 basic steps that anyone can follow for healthy, youthful skin:
#1 Drink more water and consume less caffeine
Every time you feel like grabbing another cup of caffeine, be it tea or coffee, hold up and swap for a cup of water instead. Not only will you reduce your sugar and calories consumption, you will feel more energized as well. The sugar in these drinks actually tire you out and caffeine results in a midday slump after the initial energy spike, which is the real reason why you feel like reaching for your next cup of coffee!. It's a well-known fact that caffeine dehydrates your body. Skin cells are made of water, so water levels must be replenished regularly to ensure that they stay healthy. Dry skin also leads to fine lines and wrinkles, so cutting out caffeine is a small sacrifice to make to maintain youthful, healthy skin!
#2 Get 8 hours of sleep
In our busy city, few have the luxury to enjoy a good 8 hours of sleep. However, adequate sleep boasts a wealth of benefits, including:
- Allows your skin cells to repair themselves during the night
- Allowing the nutrients in your skincare products to be fully absorbed and penetrate the skin to aid cell restoration at night
- Reduces stress. Don't we just get a little cranky when we are stressed?
- Helps to improve immunity and the onset of other diseases such as cancer
If you are not getting your full 8 hours of sleep, it may be time to start inculcating this good habit! Besides forcing yourself to stop procrastinating and become more productive by making the most out of your waking hours, you are also going to be more alert in the day, reducing the need for coffee too!
#3 Exercise regularly
Exercising improves blood circulation which is great for not just your body, but your skin too. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to cells throughout the body, including the skin. It also helps carry away waste products, including free radicals, flushing cellular debris out of the system - much like cleansing your skin from the inside!
A 20 minute run around the park once a week is always better than an intense 2-hour kickboxing class once every few months. Start small and be consistent in your journey towards a healthier you!
#4 Choose antioxidant-rich skincare products that are easily absorbed into the skin
Skincare products are aplenty and finding the right one can be like searching for a needle in the haystack. Although good ingredients that help delay the ageing of the skin is important, looking out for products that enable your skin to easily absorb these nutrients is also crucial to achieve the best results from your anti-ageing skincare regime.
