There are those at the age of 41 who have twenty-year-old skin like Lure Hsu, the Taiwanese interior designer who looks like something out of a teen magazine, and those who at 35 start to deal with the appearance of the first sagging. Don’t worry, with some foresight you can counteract the effects of time such as the progressive decrease in cell turnover, collagen and elasticity while maintaining a splendid appearance.
The first secret to fresh, glowing skin and a healthy lifestyle. Smoking, in addition to damaging the cardiovascular system, worsens the appearance of the skin because it removes oxygen from it, making it dull and opaque and emphasizing the first signs of aging. Even exposing yourself to the sun without adequate protection accelerates the appearance of wrinkles and is dangerous because it predisposes to sunburn, erythema and spots, in addition to the much more dangerous melanoma.
A regular beauty routine is the second commandment. Going to sleep without removing make-up and never missing an effective moisturizer has been banned for thirty yearsfor the day and one that has a filling action, for example based on peptides, for the night. A couple of times a month do a gentle scrub and at least four times a year give yourself a peeling to remove dead cells and impurities and stimulate cell renewal.
It is said that we “are what we eat”, in this case, to keep the skin at its best, also pay attention to what you drink: limit alcoholic and sugary drinks and drink plenty of water , at least one and a half liters a day. If you are not used to it, start by adding a few drops of fresh lemon juice or a few slices of apricot or peach to macerate: the pleasant aroma will help you achieve your goal and in a few days you will notice the improvements in your skin.
Even bringing a lot of fruit and vegetables to the table contributes to hydration and allows you to take substances such as vitamin C, essential for the production of collagen, and lycopene (tomatoes are rich in it), which has a strong antioxidant action and protects from free radicals. Omega 3 fatty acids are another must for skin beauty, found in walnuts, flax seeds and fish, especially oily fish such as anchovies and mackerel.
If you have a sweet tooth, you can treat yourself to a couple of squares of dark chocolate: in addition to being delicious, it is also good because it contains flavonoids , powerful antioxidants that help make the skin radiant. Many foods also have the power to purify the body. The yogurt, for example, it acts on the bacterial flora and increases the natural defenses also of the skin, eliminates toxins and, thanks to the presence of riboflavin and pantothenic acid, regulates lymphatic drainage: an aid against morning dark circles.
Finally, for a fresh look, getting enough sleep is essential, but no to marathons after an endless series of sleepless nights: try to be regular and sleep at least seven hours. And for emergencies, to erase the greyness, a touch of illuminating golden earth comes in handy. And the skin glows, at least for one evening.
