Why Is Anti Aging Skin Care Necessary?

Updated on July 1, 2012

How would you react to aging?

Childhood is the most enjoyable phase in a normal person's life, being free from worries and stress. If only we could remain children all through our lives! But we know that this is not practically possible. The process of aging is simply unavoidable and it is one of the dictates of Nature.

However hard you try to make yourself appear young and beautiful, your skin is sure to give away your real age. So your priority in your anti aging mission should be to take utmost care of your skin. Once your skin begins to show signs of wrinkling, you may have to resort to the use of the best anti aging skin care products available in the market.

Care for your skin the natural way

There is a lot you can do much before you reach your thirties because that is when your skin begins to show signs of aging. You can plan a systematic pattern of activities so that you are in every way benefited from it. The following are suggestions for you to chart out a plan in order to delay aging:

  • As far as possible try to lead a stress-free life. Every one faces difficult situations and the magnitude of your problems lies in the way you perceive them. Once you know how to handle the tough situations, then your chances of getting stressed out are diminished. Stress is believed to bring down the collagen levels vital for a healthy skin.
  • Consume a well-balanced and nutritious diet that is high on vitamins and low on fats. Vitamins are rich sources of antioxidants that stimulate collagen production which helps keep the skin smooth and firm.
  • Does your life style include a regular visit to the gym? If not, make it a point to workout regularly at the gym or even at home. Physical exercises tone up the muscles as well as help reduce the fatty deposits.
  • If your work involves being out all day, take adequate precautions to prevent the harmful effects of the sun's ultra violet rays on your skin. Use a sunscreen lotion whenever you have to go out in the sun.
  • Another damaging effect of being out on the streets is pollution. Make sure that you wash your face with a good cleanser at least thrice a day. This way, the pores that are clogged by the grime and dust from pollution open up and let the skin breathe.
  • Drink plenty of fluids. Water, of course, is the best fluid that helps in hydration of the skin.
  • Meditation helps to a great extent in reducing your stress levels and this is a big step forward in reaching your anti aging goals.
  • Last, but not the least, is good, sound sleep that is in every way refreshing to your body and mind.

      Thank you skye2day for the nice comment. I drink about 2 to 3 liters of water everyday and am surprised that I am feeling better than ever before so far as my arthritic pains are concerned. I was advised to drink water in small gulps at regular intervals say 15 to 20 minutes and this is working well for me. Thanks for visiting my hub.

      Thank You for the great tips and reminder. Water is key as you mentioned in one of your tips. My skin gets very dry if I do not drink enough of it. Hugs Stay Beautiful.

      Hi Lady_E,

      Thanks for stopping by. Yes, meditation helps a lot in keeping your youthful look intact simply because you feel de-stressed. I am sure all of us would look and feel great if only there wasn't anything called 'stress' in life. Anyway meditation helps combat stress.And a nice way to say thanks-'Shukriya' or 'Shukria'(if I may correct you).That's great.

      Thanks. I've seen some women who are 50, 60 and they don't look wrinkly. They look very well and I'm sure it's because they take very good care of themselves.

      Its nice to know meditation helps. I wasn't aware of that.

      Shuku ria. :)
