Secrets to Younger Looking Skin

Almost everyone wants to look younger if they had choice. That's why anti aging products and cosmetic plastic surgery are making lots of money by fulfilling the demands of the people to look young.
The key to healthy, young looking skin lies in our lifestyle. It's not only what you put on your skin but what you eat and how you live that affects the state of your health and of your skin.
Here are some tips to help you maintain healthy, younger looking skin :-
  • Determine your skin type, whether it be oily, dry, sensitive or combination skin

  • Use skin products (cleanser, toner, scrub and moisturizer) that suits you skin type. If possible, pick one that's natural or organic and has the least chemical in them to prevent allergic reaction.

  • Eat well balanced meals with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables high in vitamins,minerals and antioxidant content. Avoid greasy food, processed, refined sugars and caffeine. Eat foods high in zinc (aids in healing skin and prevents acne), nuts and seeds loaded with essential fatty acids vital to stimulate production of collagen and elastin to prevent wrinkling and sagging

  • Drink plenty of water to improve hydration and eliminate toxins in your system. Avoid sugary soft drinks, alcohol and caffeine instead try opting for fresh juice and green tea when you crave for them.

  • Avoid smoking cigarettes. Smoking accelarates the aging process by exposing you to the damaging effects of free radicals.

  • Exercise more as this improves the circulation, muscle toning, detoxification, promotes weight loss and helps melt away the stress. Exercise sets the right condition for the body to produce more collagen and elastin by itself naturally.

So the next time you think about younger looking skin, remember its not only about what you put on your skin or plastic surgery. Its about healthy eating and living a healthy lifestle too. Until then look great and be happy.
