Americans are becoming increasingly aware of the impacts of nutrition, diet, and exercise on overall health. People are changing their lifestyles and favoring all natural ways of looking after their bodies and health. Similarly, you can vastly improve the appearance and composition of skin — and you can do it all-naturally, too. What are the best, all-natural ways to achieve glowing, youthful skin?
Sweat It Out
Canadian researchers have good news; you can vastly improve the appearance of your skin — and naturally conquer fine lines and wrinkles — simply by getting in the habit of going to the gym. Exercising four to five times a week makes your skin look and feel younger. In fact, researchers found that middle-aged people and seniors who exercise regularly actually have skin cells and compositions that resemble 20 and 30 year olds. Study participants even enjoyed these benefits retroactively, or — in other words — their skin still tightened up and firmed up if they began exercising at 65 or up (after living a previously sedentary lifestyle).
Break Nasty Habits (Hint: Tanning Beds Are Not Your Friend)
Tanning and prolonged sun exposure is not good for you — plain and simple. Avoid artificial tanning and, if you will will be spending considerable amounts of time in the sun or at the beach, always adequately prepare. Use sunscreens with a clearly labelled SPF or sun protection factor. Remember, anything marked as a tanning oil or tanning lotion may contain a very low SPF — and sometimes they do not contain any at all.
Use Only The Best Collagen Face Creams
“Wrinkles are the result of a loss of collagen, the main structural protein of the skin. As you age, the body begins to produce less of it, which keeps skin from being as firm as it was when you were younger,” ABC News reports. The best collagen face creams, including natural collagen creams, contain peptides that naturally stimulate collagen production, ultimately firming up your skin.
Look and feel young again — with fewer fine lines and wrinkles (and do it all naturally, too!). Spend less time in the tanning bed, exercise your way to beautiful skin and better health, and use collagen creams to naturally restore skin’s elasticity. Helpful links.
