As our bodies age, they naturally deteriorate and with advancing age, a larger percentage of our cells, even though they’re present, are useless. As time passes, increased damage to healthy DNA leads to accelerated cell death, and our old bodies simply cannot generate cells fast enough to compensate for the loss. This process is most visible and obvious in our skin—the older we get, the thinner our skin becomes.
So how do we age? External free radical assault plays a major role in prematurely aging our skin, such as : sunlight (including UVA and UVB rays), pollution, stress, smoking, etc.
Scientists have come to a realization through many years of study that to prevent accelerated aging and to keep your skin from getting old and wrinkled, you need to protect your DNA from both outside and inside aggressors.
- Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet
Eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables may help prevent damage that leads to premature skin aging. Findings from research studies also suggest that a diet containing lots of sugar or other refined carbohydrates can accelerate aging.
- Exercise most days of the week
Moderate exercise can improve circulation and boost the immune system. This, in turn, may give the skin a more-youthful appearance.
- Cleanse your skin gently
Scrubbing your skin clean can irritate your skin. Irritating your skin accelerates skin aging. Gentle washing helps to remove pollution, makeup, and other substances without irritating your skin.
- Wash your face twice a day and after sweating heavily
Perspiration, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, irritates the skin, so you want to wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating.
- Apply a facial moisturizer every day
Moisturizer traps water in our skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
- Stop using skin care products that sting or burn
