Why You Lose Your Youthful Skin Appearance

If you want to keep your skin looking more youthful, you need to know why the change of skin starts as you age. Here are some of the most crucial things that will affect skin appearance and ways to prevent the skin from aging prematurely. Start applying these ideas soon so you can keep your youthful appearance.

The changes that happen as you age:

 * Top skin layer, epidermis, becomes more fragile and thinner

 * Your skin starts to get drier since oil glands produce less oil

 * Decrease of blood vessels number in your face and throughout your body. The role of blood is to bring nutrients to your skin cells, which as a result gives your skin a beautiful, healthy and rosy look

 * Fewer skin cells are repaired and their replacement process is slower

 * The effects of sun and pollution start to show on your skin by breaking down collagen and elastin, responsible for your skin's elasticity.

 * How you eat starts showing on your face. A proper diet, lousy diet - you cannot escape it anymore. Bad food means fewer nutrients your skin needed to be flexible, well-hydrated, oxygenated, and healthy.

 * Have you used un-healthy skin products? The adverse effects of using them will start showing your skin too.

You can see that skin beauty depends on what you eat, your sun, and pollution exposure, the chemicals your skin has been exposed to. Too much sun and pollution will damage your skin and accelerate its aging appearance - age spots, wrinkles, blemishes, roughness, sagging.

Now, let's see what you can do to slow down the aging process of your skin.

 * A must - sunscreen daily - You can slow down the process of wrinkle formation if you use sunscreen early in your life. Choose a sunscreen that contains Zinc Oxide, far better Titanium Dioxide. Use a broadband SPF 15 daily, and for intense outdoor sun activities, go for SPF 30. If you wear makeup, remember to put your sunscreen on first.

 * Sunscreen and a hat are a must even when it's overcast on hot days. Stay in the shade when possible.

 * Stay away from highly polluted areas. Don't smoke. You probably know it already: smoking changes the elasticity of the skin fibers, which leads to rough and wrinkled skin.

 *You need enough sleep. Your skin repairs itself when you sleep.

 * When you sleep, don't sleep with your face into the pillow.

 * Hydration. Drink a lot of water — a complete must. Your skin loses hydration during warm days and needs a lot of water to keep hydrated. Also, you can found water in raw fruits and vegetables. Sodas, sugary drinks, tea (except for herbal teas), coffee, or milk are not doing your skin a favor.

 * Try to minimize drinking alcohol. Alcohol may lead to spider veins and broken capillaries. Another adverse effect on your skin is dehydration.

 * Remember about your healthy diet, full of fruits and vegetables. They provide plenty of antioxidants, which protect you from the sun and pollution damage.

 * Take an antioxidant supplement, which should include up to 2000 mg of vitamin C. You may have to take the Vitamin C separate.

Start using these ideas, and you will see improvement on your skin. This improvement may take a few months to appear on your skin. Stay patient and persistent,, and you will be rewarded with good skin appearance.
