Ah, that glow – it’s what we all want. Sometimes it feels like we’re in a never-ending conquest to get that youthful skin without having to remind back to our early teen years. But as the years go by and age starts to make an impact, there’s no avoiding the change in appearance that our skin goes through; it’s only natural. However, there are still a few ways you can get that natural, youthful glow back, no matter your age.
Choosing a mineral-based sunscreen with a decent SPF factor can be applied daily, all year-round. In a nutshell, UV rays can wreak havoc, no matter the time of year, so it’s important to prevent any damage by applying quality products that act as a safeguard. UV rays are those nasty things that are responsible for degrading skin texture and colouring, and also directly cause ageing.
If you can get your hands on a collagen supplement, these goodies are packed full of amino acids, which is great for your hair, skin and even nails. Ingesting these can do wonders fr supporting the renewal process of your skin’s cellular structure, as well as stimulating elastin.
If you want to achieve a more firm complexion, this is your go-to.
We’re all guilty of leaving this to the wayside, but it’s an important step in any beauty routine. Don’t go all out with a harsh scrub, but rather choose a gentle exfoliator that you can use lightly everyday – preferably something that can dissolve dead skin cells. Removing this outer later lets your skin absorb all the moisturisation you’re giving it at a better absorption rate rather than lathering up those dead skin cells. We also highly recommend using a reusable make-up remover sponge to help you with the process (and the environment will thank you too).
It might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to skin health, but research has shown that underlying gut issues can actually turn into acne and breakouts, or even eczema. Avoid sugary, processed foods and opt for cleaner options, like veg and fruit, to ensure you’re giving your gut’s flora the best shot at success.
There are such things as good fats, and sometimes we like to ignore this in favour of thinking absolutely all fats are a terrible thing. Too much of anything is never great, but choosing foods like nuts, flaxseed and avocados for your diet can actually help to stimulate strong cell membranes that restore your skin’s barrier.
If in doubt, always as your doctor for further skin advice, if your condition is worsening. But for general ways to combat signs of ageing, using the above steps can get you on the right track.
