While you cannot stop the natural aging process, you can control how well you age by taking protective measures and making the necessary environmental and lifestyle adjustments as you age.
Here are some tips for healthy skin that may help keep wrinkles and other signs of aging at bay.
Shield Your Skin From The Sun
Prolonged exposure to the sun plays a critical role in premature skin aging. You can cover your skin by wearing sun-protective clothing like a wide brim hat, a long-sleeved shirt or pants, and even sunglasses with UV protection.
For extra protection, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and water-resistant. Thera Calazinc Body Shield Skin Protectant Scented Cream is highly recommended to treat and relieve skin irritation, itching, and chaffing while giving your skin a certain degree of protection. It also contains essential vitamins, including B, C, and E, necessary to nourish your skin. Apply the sunscreen to the part of the skin not covered by clothing.
Use a Facial Moisturizer
Your skin may become thinner and dryer as you age. It needs the most nourishing daily moisturizer.
Thera Hand and Body Moisturizer Scented Cream contains hyaluronic acid. This natural lubricating substance has a soothing effect to dry, cracked, or peeling skin due to sunburn or other dry skin conditions. It also helps trap enough water in the skin, giving you a more youthful appearance.
If you do have dry skin, you can take your protection even further with Thera Skin Protectant Scented Cream. It uses dimethicone to protect and normalize skin anywhere on your body.
Exfoliate Every Week
Your skin sheds dead cells regularly, creating a new layer every other month. Over time, this process may slow down, leading to the dullness of the skin.
An exfoliation routine can help remove the build-up and loosen cells, leaving you with a more youthful appearance. Use Thera Lotion Body Wash Scented 8 oz. Lotion afterward on your face, body, and perineal area. It’s formulated with hyaluronic acid to keep your skin hydrated and provide relief to chapped or cracked skin.
If you lack elasticity in your skin, then chances are you are dehydrated. Skin that is dry and tight is uncomfortable at any age. Areas like the skin under your eyes can even become darker if you are not hydrated.
Drinking lots of water helps increase elasticity in your skin, so it stays hydrated and healthy for longer. Make sure you’re drinking at least six to eight 8 ounce glasses of water every day to stay hydrated and keep your skin firm.
If you’re worried about your skin aging or perhaps you have already seen some signs of premature skin aging, you can benefit from making fundamental lifestyle changes. These essential tips will demonstrate how to protect skin and help you get back your youthful appearance, and slow down the aging process.
