Keep your skin looking young

People who want to look a little more like their younger selves without resorting to surgery can have younger-looking skin without going under the knife. The following are a handful of natural ways to keep your skin vibrant and youthful.

Quit smoking.

Smoking damages collagen and elastin in the skin, which are the substances that help keep skin flexible and firm. Also, smoking decreases blood flow to the skin and makes it difficult for it to receive enough oxygen to stay healthy.

Steer clear of the sun. Excessive exposure to ultraviolet light damages the skin and can cause it to age prematurely.

Drink more water.

A dehydrated body will divert water to the organs that need it the most, including the liver and heart. Drinking the recommended six to eight glasses of water per day.

Exercise. By working out you’ll promote good cardiovascular health, which in turn will deliver blood flow and nutrients to the surface of your skin.

Take care of your skin at night. Moisturizers and serums with concentrated blends of vitamins, antioxidants and botanicals are most effective at night.
