Just how often does our mouth water over a celebrity’s glowing skin? It is unfathomable to us how they manage to maintain their youthful and radiant complexion. It’s as though as the years pass one by one, these celebrities become more vigorous. Is it possible that they have found a new hack to our impending doom?
The answer to that is surely a ‘no’. As a matter of fact, it has not been documented yet that anyone has even come close to beating the sands of time. Up until now, your best bet is to stick to the list we’ve provided below and stay up to date on new longevity and anti-aging medicine to keep your skin youthful and healthy. Aging is a part of life, which we must all accept and embrace.
Steal the limelight by implementing this routine in your everyday life:
- Drink More Water. Your skin consists of cells like any other organ. Skin cells are very similar to other cells found in your body, in that they are made up of 98% water. Now picture this, how much do our bodies sweat daily? Even when we don’t feel a trickle of sweat down our forehead, this does not mean that our body is not perspiring. Replenish the body, by drinking AT LEAST6 L/D (for adult men) and 2.1 L/D (for adult women). According to Harvard Health Publishing, the benefits of drinking more water are: carrying nutrients and oxygen to your cells, flushing bacteria from your bladder, regulating body temperature, maintaining electrolyte balance and normalizing blood pressure.
- Exercise Daily. A consistent workout plan will increase blood circulation and oxygenation to the skin surface. On top of that, exercising will allow you to sweat out some of the waste products, such as cellular debris that may be lingering in your body. Post-workout glow is a real phenomenon folks. I suggest you get on the bandwagon. I promise you this, once you start exercising and discovering that your skin is becoming healthier, you’ll become addicted to staying active. Don’t take my words for granted. Find out yourself!
- Use Supplements. Dryness in the skin can usually be the result of a low-fat diet. Vitamin A is an antioxidant that helps your skin by protecting it from sunburns. Vitamin C is another antioxidant that aids in the process of lightening hyperpigmentation and restraining the production of melanin in the skin (melanin is a natural skin pigment that predetermines the colour of your hair, skin and iris). Notable mentions are also: zinc, selenium and collagen. These all promote having healthy skin.
- Moisturize Your Skin. Avoid flaky and wrinkly skin by moisturizing your body thoroughly at least once a day (preferably after you shower). Oil is the consequence of the overproduction of sebum. Oily and dry skin is a recipe that will lead you to unwanted skin problems. Rashes and acne will appear. Try opting for a moisturizer that contains an exfoliating ingredient.
