There Is More Than Beauty Rest Required For A Youthful Glow
There have been a multitude of studies conducted on aging and how to obtain a fountain of youth effect. While there is no cure all for the act of aging in humans, the scientific community, along with the help of cosmetics suppliers, has certainly come a long way in what they can do to help reduce signs of aging, and bring back that youthful glow to skin.
Much of what is required for this kind of youthful appearance is advertised in the modern media as being of a chemical and cosmetic nature, but what many people don’t realize is that the basics for every anti-aging regime begins at home with standard healthy activity.
Don’t Forget Your Beauty Sleep
You have likely heard the expression before that somebody needs their beauty sleep, and although it is highly unlikely that a cat nap will make you any more attractive, getting a good night’s sleep can certainly help. Web MD reports: “More sleep, clearer skin. Lack of sleep can lead to stress, which causes pimples and blackheads, even in adults. In one study, experts found that college students had more breakouts when they were stressed out, such as during exam time.”
In teens and young adults sleep can help reduce acne and keep skin clear, which in turn helps prevent early signs of aging as teens get older. Scars and acne marks can turn into damaged skin and wrinkles if this skin isn’t properly cared for, so if you are able to avoid it altogether this can be helpful.
When your body sleeps it begins rebuilding itself, healing cells that have been damaged, and growing new tissue. This is when your skin gets a chance to regenerate itself and replace old damaged cells with new ones. If you want your skin to look fresh and young, sleeping at least 8 hours a night is important.
The average thought on sunscreen tends to vary year to year, with people believing that sun is good for them one year then hiding out from the rays the next. Of course the vitamin D that sun gives your skin is important, but you can actually damage your skin, and your eyes if you don’t wear the proper protection while soaking up all of that sunshine. Medical News Today says: “According to a British Association of Dermatologists survey carried out last year, many Britons are unaware that sun protection can keep the skin looking younger, believing instead that applying a daily moisturizer, eating a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water and having facial massages will suffice.”
SPF 15 and up is a good place to start, and remember that children and seniors have more sensitive skin and often require SPF 30-50 if possible. Getting fresh air and sunshine in the summer months can be rejuvenating and make you feel more energetic and alive, but remember to wear a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen if you don’t want to increase signs of aging.
For many men and women, washing your face can seem like a chore, and this makes it tempting to rush through the process, but this can be damaging to the top layer of your skin. Face washes and harsh soap products can be harmful to your skin if they are left on too long. Not only do they dry out your skin, but they also product a chemical buildup that can make your skin appear dull and lifeless, and keep it from breathing. Surgery.org says: “If you’re used to simply splashing a bit of soap and water on your face while in the shower, then you need to make a change. The news source suggests washing the face once in the morning and again at night – and you’ll also need to give it a good scrub after a workout.”
Rinsing properly will help keep your skin clear, your face fresh, and your youthful glow shining through. Remember not to rub a towel across your face after washing, but pat your skin dry instead to protect that thin outer layer. By washing your face at least twice a day, once in the morning, and once before bed, you’ll be looking and feeling younger in no time.
