80% of signs of aging come from the way you live
But there are still things you can do to #LIVEMORE and get radiant skin in the process.
Living your life to the fullest is extremely satisfying, but sometimes you need some extra protection to keep your skin in great shape. 80% of signs of aging come from the way you live, but luckily there are things you can do to shield, as well as repair your skin. Check out what some of the age accelerator culprits are below so that you can preserve your glow and keep those wrinkles far, far away for years to come.
The culprit: UV rays
Combat it: With sunscreen
A dose of Vitamin D can do the body good, but UV rays can cause premature wrinkles if your skin’s not well protected. If you haven’t been applying sunscreen before your morning runs, now is the time to start – even if it’s cloudy out! If you don’t like the texture of sunscreen, consider using a face cream or BB cream that has SPF protection in it.
The culprit: Stress and anxiety
Combat it: With meditation
It can be hard to juggle running to different meetings throughout the day, picking up the kids from school and then cooking dinner at night. Each time your stress level rises, cortisol is released which can break down collagen over time and make fine lines and wrinkles show up at an accelerated rate. Meditate every day to fight back, relax, and breathe new life into your cells, even if it’s only for 5 minutes.
The culprit: Free radicals
Combat it: With antioxidants
The World Health Organization has reported that their pollution database has doubled over the past two years, meaning that an increased number of people are at risk of being exposed to free radicals. While it’s hard to escape them, you can still defend and protect yourself from potential harm by amping up your antioxidant intake. Eat lots of fruits like berries, which are rich in flavonols and anthocyanins. Repair any free radical damage and reverse signs of aging (fine lines and wrinkles) with skincare products from Biotherm’s Blue Therapy line, like Serum-in-Oil or Cream-in-Oil.
