SEVEN STEPS TO CHANGE THE FUTURE OF YOUR SKIN

7 STEPS to change the future for your ?#?skin?

Following these seven steps could dramatically change how well your skin will age. In time, you’ll look 10 years younger than your contemporaries who have kept up their old habits. Here’s what to do:

1: STOP SMOKING: This is one of the single, most crucial moves to keep your skin looking young. Come on – it’s never too late!

2: START USING BROAD SPECTRUM ?#?SUNSCREEN? (UVA / UVB):?#?sunprotection? is needed every single day, year-round – summer and winter. Aiming high with sun protection is important, since studies have shown that we rarely use enough product to reach the ?#?SPF? factor stated on the package!

3: GET THE ANTI OXIDANT HABIT: Apply a good antioxidant serum to your face, neck, chest and hands every morning before you apply sun protection.

4: CHANGE YOUR DIET: Make sure you include lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, low-glycemic index carbohydrates, lean, high-quality protein and unsaturated fats.

5: DRINK ENOUGH WATER: Drink 2 litres of water daily.

6: START USING VITAMIN A REPAIR CREAM: Apply it to your face, chest, neck and hands each evening. Look for over-the-counter products containing retinol or retinaldehyde, or ask your doctor to prescribe a ‘gold-standard’ tretinoin cream. As vitamin A derivatives can be potentially irritating, they need to be adjusted to whatever your skin tolerates.

7: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH SLEEP & REDUCE YOUR STRESS LEVELS! Sleep deprivation and stress raise your levels of cortisol – a hormone known to have negative effects on collagen metabolism. Did you know too, that increased cortisol levels due to chronic sleep loss can lead to insulin resistance, a risk factor for obesity and diabetes?

IT ONLY TAKES A FEW STEPS TO CHANGE THE FUTURE OF YOUR SKIN. START NOW – AND PREPARE TO LOOK FABULOUS AT ANY AGE!
