Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips for 50 and Above

In the modern world, there are many advantages and disadvantages to keeping your skin anti-aged. The two best ways to give your skin what it needs everyday is an adequate amount of sleep and plenty of water. When you sleep, your skin regenerates and renews, your body is made up of mostly water so drinking water will keep your cells hydrated. In turn, your skin on the outside will be protected and perfectly managed.

So what is this formula for effective anti-aging and disease prevention? People go through hundreds of products every year and never find something that really works. You can even check out Purtier Placenta Review to see a list of effective and natural tips in skin-care department. There are several popular products that you can get as well.

Using skin care products will not help your skin anti-age and the reason for this is will probably surprise you. Real Anti-aging is keeping the skin hydrated inside and out. The skin is very porous and the scientific community says that what you put ON your skin ends up IN your system. Most all beauty products today for anti-aging contain forms of poisons, ingredients that if you saw in the raw you would run from. For instance, there are parabens, methylparaben, propylparaben and many many others that are used as ingredients in your products. These ingredients WILL make you age faster when exposed to sunlight and as you go about your daily life your skin is constantly exposed. Know that if you opt for a cream or a sunscreen lotion, make sure it’s one with 100% natural ingredients and maybe even something that has a little science backing it up so you KNOW you’re using only the purest.

When you are using products to keep your skin youthful, it is easy to pull on your face in such a manor that you are actually loosening the elasticity in your skin instead of preserving it. Most woman have the tendency especially when they are in a hurry to pull on the skin when putting on a product and that is one of the biggest ways wrinkles are formed. Be gentle and caring when applying anything to your face.

To protect your skin from wind and dirt, develop a good habit of washing your face twice a day. You definitely want to wash your face at least before going to sleep at night. Also develop a good habit of exercise. Exercising your body increases your strength and your ability to ward off stress. As a matter of fact, I recently picked up a book that shows you how to do exercises for your face to keep yourself looking young. Strange I know, but anything that you continue to do can be extremely beneficial. You can walk around your neighborhood or take a bike ride. Make it fun for yourself and do something out of the norm such as playing tennis even if you don’t know how to play (you will DEFINITELY get some exercise then because you’ll be chasing the ball everywhere!). Just because you’re 50 doesn’t mean you can’t run. There are people 80 years of age that are highly competitive. Get a badminton set or a ping pong table, you can take swim classes or play with little children. Continue to be creative in your ways to get exercise because above all, exercise is what will keep you younger than ever!

Ever thought about nutrition as a way of anti-aging? When your body is receiving the proper amount of nutrients and your organs are functioning correctly, you can expect your body to reverse in age. This is caused due to the very simple fact that your hormones are in perfect balance, your heart is healthy, your mind is clear and receptive and your cells are nourished. Now, you’re talking about anti-aging from the INSIDE-OUT.

Another great thing you can do to preserve your age is continuing your education and helping others. This may not be one of those tips on how to apply makeup or what color lipstick will look better on you after a certain age. This is a historical anti-aging tip that has been used since the beginning of time. Everyone knows that the more you learn, the less stress you have in your life and the more you understand, the less tension you endure when you’re communicating with others. The reason for this is because you are sensitive to others’ feelings and emotions when you are learning and you’re also comfortable with you and your world. Only through continuing education will you be able to achieve an anti-aged stress free life. I personally enjoy aging, I’ve come to an understanding that everything gets better with age. I do not see myself as my age, I believe I grow wiser NOT older and I keep my frame of mind young by NEVER saying I’m so many years OLD. Psychologically, that’s another BIG tip on staying young. It’s your frame of mind. Sometimes I even forget my age because I do not dwell on it.

Self-education is a key in maintaining anti-aging wellness. No trash magazines, novels, television, news or radio can help you do this. These things are negative distractions and are the kind of bad education that will cause problems in your life. The kind of education that will relieve problems in your life and keep you young is reading the Bible, giving thanks to GOD and spending time with just yourself for a few minutes a day. Opening your heart and mind to new and creative things will exalt your body’s aging process because stress does cause wrinkles and sagging skin. Don’t think that since you’re half way through life that you know enough and choose to stop learning because that is when life WILL become stressful and you will age because of it.
