Skin care is a subject that gets closer to your heart the older you get. As you age your interest in finding the latest new wrinkle cream increases, and you start to read more avidly about skin care for wrinkles.
However it might surprise you to know that the best skin care for wrinkle prevention isn’t finding the best new wrinkle cream on the market. The best way to prevent wrinkles has nothing to do with anti wrinkle creams.
Our skin health, and progress of our skin towards wrinkles and sagging, is more about our lifestyle and overall health. Skin health follows overall health, and it is very difficult to achieve great looking, young looking glowing skin if we are generally unhealthy. Better health translates to better looking, and healthier skin. Regardless of whether we search out the latest new wrinkle cream or not.
And of course there are other factors as well. Obviously our age is a huge factor in the look and health of our skin, and there is nothing we can do about that. A 20 year old is just more likely to have great skin than a 60 year old. That’s just a fact of life.
But whilst we cannot do anything about our age, there is lots we can do for our health and at the same time achieving the best skin care for wrinkles and wrinkle prevention. It’s really very simple. Notice I said simple, not easy.
First thing we need to do is to minimize our lifestyle factors. Lifestyle factors are a huge contributor to our overall health, and to our skin health. One of the worst things you can do to your skin, and to your body, is to smoke.
It is well recognised that smoking has an extremely negative impact on our skin. People who smoke have older looking skin when they are younger. Wrinkles develop earlier and are more pronounced. If you smoke, and you want your skin to look better, stop smoking right now. And your body will thank you for it in so many other ways other than in your skin health.
Next comes exercise. If you don’t exercise then you need to. A good exercise routine heavily impacts your overall health, and your skin health. More and more research is showing the major benefits of exercise on so many aspects of our health. You must develope a good exercise routine, not just for your skin health but for your overall health. And as I said, the two go together.
Finally comes your diet. A change in your diet can be the best skin care for wrinkles that you can do. Not only will a good diet improve your skin health and the look of your skin, but it will also impact your overall health. And at the risk of repetition, skin health follows our overall health.
Our diets rich in pizzas, burgers and processed foods is not good for our skin, and not good for our health generally. We need a diet rich in natural vitamins, minerals, anti oxidants and essential oils and you won’t find too many of these in pizzas, burgers or processed foods.
Eat less of these and eat more vegetables and fruits.
And finally, take high quality supplements to supplement those vitamins, minerals, anti oxidants and essential oils that you still aren’t getting, even through a good diet. Because it’s practically impossible to eat well enough to supply our bodies with all the vitamins, minerals, anti oxidants and essential oils that we need for optimum health and overall skin health. The best supplements, (note I said the best supplements, most aren’t very good), will provide you with a complete supply of what your body needs in the right combinations.
Follow these simple steps and you’ll be pursuing the best skin care for wrinkles there is. By all means add to this the use of great quality organic skin care products and you’ve got all bases covered. Do all this and your skin will be so much healthier, and look so much better, than it ever could using that new wrinkle cream that came out last month that promises so much, (but delivers so little).
Remember, I said it’s simple, not easy. But do this and your whole life, not just your skin, will change for the better.
