Top Three Tips to Prevent Early Signs of Aging
According to Dr. Rajani Katta, a dermatologist and clinical faculty member at Baylor College of Medicine, these are three major ways to combat signs of aging no matter how old you are:
Be Careful with Sun Exposure
To decrease the effect of the sun on your skin, Katta recommends wearing big sunglasses to protect the skin around your eyes, and a wide-brimmed hat while in the sun. Also, seek shade whenever possible.
It is important to find a broad-spectrum sunscreen (SPF 30 or above) that can be worn every day, even if it is cloudy or you are driving in the car. These items are very important to protect your skin from the sun.
“There is a significant amount of UV radiation that can come through window glass,” Katta said. “It can cause lop-sided aging especially when you are driving, so it is important to wear sunscreen even while in the car.”
Eat the Right Foods
Your diet can have a major impact on your skin, says Katta. She explains that the free radicals that cause premature skin aging which emerges from exposure to the UV radiations of the sun can be combated by eating a diet full of antioxidant-rich foods – like blueberries and spinach.
“While our body contains antioxidants to quench free radicals, it is essential to eat plenty of foods that can replenish those antioxidants,” Katta said. “On the other hand, eating a diet full of processed carbs and added sugar can elevate blood sugar levels, which lead to collagen damage and premature wrinkling.”
Choose the Right Skincare Products
Choosing skincare products is not for the young alone, people of all ages should choose skincare products that promote sun protection. it is essential to choose products that cater to your skin’s needs. If you are noticing premature wrinkling or aging, Katta recommends a visit to a dermatologist who can show you the best products or procedures for your skin.
“If you are starting to see fine lines and wrinkles at a young age, I suggest going to see a dermatologist counteract those lines,” Katta said. “They have great tools and procedures to help with that.”
Conclusively, maintaining good looks is as important as maintaining good health. Use the tips given above to get the best results for your skin. Further research can be done on Google.
