Preventing wrinkles can be an endless fight! For many women (and men, too) it often starts as early as in their 20’s; by the time you’re in your 40’s and 50’s, if you want to keep your supple skin and youthful look, you will have to put some effort into taking care of yourself and your skin.
In fact, trying to slow down the aging process of the skin can cause even more stress, thus causing more wrinkles. Fortunately, it’s a scientific fact that wrinkles – although cannot be avoided altogether, they can be prevented, smoothed out and their appearance postponed.
You can prevent wrinkles by following these three simple tips:
Eat your Greens and Reds
Vegetables and fruits are full of vitamins and minerals your body and your skin need. Help your body regain its youth by enjoying a lot of your favourite fruits like pomegranate, red grapes, and berries, which are full of antioxidants that can help reduce the signs of aging. Try to eat at least three portions of fruit per day – a handful of berries counts as one portion.
Drink Plenty of Water
You should really try to drink 8-10 glasses of water (amounting to ca. 2 liters) daily. And this means water – not coffee or soda drinks! Herbal tea or juices in moderation can be counted towards the daily goal though. If you’re physically active, you should increase the amount you drink.
Not only is water vital for our survival, it is also essential in hydrating the skin and making it smooth again.
As an extra bonus you might even end up losing a few pounds, especially if you swap your soda to water!
Take Your Daily Dose Of Vitamin C and E
If you feel you’re just not getting enough fruits and vegetables in your diet, you could consider taking a quality supplement based on this vitamin duo. It’s a great combination for fighting the signs of aging. Make sure that you take the supplement before meals to maximize its effect.
Fighting the signs of aging does not have to be stressful. You can prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging with these tips, which will surely help you keep that healthy and smooth looking skin for longer.
