Anti-Aging Tips to Turn Back the Clock

How much do you know about skin? Do you know that the skin is our largest organ? It is, both in weight (between six and nine pounds) and surface area (about two square yards). The skin protects you from bacteria and viruses, helps you sense the outside world, and regulates your body temperature. For these reasons it is so important to know how to protect your skin and keep it healthy as you age - something that so many people neglect to do.

  • Factors that accelerate aging:
  • Environmental exposures
  • Poor diet
  • Smoking
  • UV exposure
  • Harsh skincare products
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Stress
  • Acne

A key factor in the formation of a wrinkle is inflammation and damage to collagen.

First, fight aging by increasing your cell turnover. Younger people experience cell turnover every 28-30 days, and by age 60 it's as many as 45-50 days. Exfoliating is a great way to quickly increase cell turnover.

The next step is to decrease your free radical damage, which causes harm to your collagen, leaving the molecules to become stiff and inflexible. You can do this with the use of antioxidants. Also, decrease sun damage by using sunscreen.

And last but not least, decrease inflammation that is caused by dehydrated skin, acne, and rosacea, among other things. To decrease inflammation, nourish and hydrate your skin. It also is recommended that you avoid touching your face as much as possible to avoid further irritation.
