Eternal Radiance: Timeless Ways to Maintain Youthful Skin at Any Age

It is no secret that aging is inevitable. We all want to look and feel younger. Why not put aging off as long as possible? There are numerous ways to accomplish this but primarily, be consistent in your routine.  Establish a routine of care for yourself and stick with it. The biggest failure is not sticking with it. Also, recent studies have shown that stress causes physical changes in the body that spur on aging. Surges in hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol increase blood pressure and heart rate. When stressors seem to be a constant, the uptick of adrenaline and cortisol take a heavy toll on our physical and emotional health. The goal then is to learn to stress less and relax a little more. Read on to hear what our top 5 tips are to stay ageless!

  1.  Stay out of the sun

      Although the sun is not the only factor in the look of your skin, it does play a huge role.  In fact, damage from the sun’s UV and UVB rays contribute to 90% of the visible signs of aging in all of us. UV rays break down the elastin in the skin causing wrinkles, age spots and uneven skin tone. Always wear a good sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher. It should be a broad spectrum—meaning it helps block both UVA and UVB rays.       

      2.   Drink plenty of water  

       Hydration is the key to younger looking skin. Aim for drinking 8 glasses of filtered water each day to keep skin healthy and radiant.  Dehydration can cause the skin to look dull and dry bringing out wrinkles and emphasizing aging. Drinking enough water daily replenishes your skin’s tissue and cells with moisture —the best medicine for your skin. 

       3.  Catch some ZZZs 

One of the best ever anti-aging tips is to get significant amounts of rest! As you sleep, your body releases hormones that promote cell turnover and renewal.  Beauty sleep is a real thing so always use sleep time to your advantage to preserve your beautiful skin.   

       4.  Eat a Healthy Diet   

The benefits of a fruit and vegetable rich diet are many.  These foods provide key nutrients that help support health inside and out. Fruits and vegetables also increase your intake of phytonutrients that ward off free radicals. Your goal should be a consistent healthy diet supplemented with whole grains and lean protein. A healthy diet will provide the energy you need to get and keep your body moving which is another key ingredient to looking and feeling younger.  

       5.  Limit alcohol and caffeine  

 While we all love a great martini or a lovely latte as much as the next person, we should limit our intake of alcohol and caffeine.  Both have health benefits if consumed in moderation but can wreak havoc on the skin if over consumed.  Play it safe by limiting yourself to one or two drinks per week if possible.  We all love to indulge but do it in small doses. Your skin and your body will love you for it.
