Enhance your lifestyle to unveil the secret to youthful skin
Keeping your youthful glow is easier than you think with these simple changes.
We all dream of stumbling across the fountain of youth so we can stay fresh faced forever. Yet away from the fantasy, the reality is that although aging is inevitable, there is still plenty you can do to reduce the effect that getting older has on the appearance of skin. Lots of things contribute to the development of wrinkles and fine lines. Some of which we can do nothing about, such as the natural aging process itself. It may be impossible to turn back the hands of time internally, but external factors, such as lifestyle and UV rays, are in fact responsible for many of the signs of aging. We fill you in on the ultimate 3-step plan to keep skin looking younger for longer...
Step 1: The essentials of your skincare routine
Taking care of your skin is the primary way to keep your complexion looking youthful and radiant. Prevention is better than cure, so start as early as your 20s for maximum results!
Cleanse your skin: Gently cleansing or washing your face twice a day removes impurities which can lie on our skin, such as sweat, pollution and make up, and which can contribute to early aging. Try our time-saving Biosource Cleansing Micellar Water to quickly and effectively remove daily impurities in one simple step, whilst also toning and purifying for your most radiant skin yet. Keeping skin clear is a must, but try to avoid any harsh scrubbing of the skin as it can cause irritation and in turn accelerate aging.
Moisturize: Moisturizing helps to hydrate and nourish skin cells whilst also forming a protective barrier to reduce the impact of any impurities which may lie on your skin during the day. To make your skin stronger against daily aggressors, try Blue Therapy Multi-Defender. It’s infused with Baicalin, F. Lumbricalis to help heal, protect and rejuvenate skin. Formulated with sun protection SPF 25, this powerful daily moisturizer defends skin from aging accelerators, and, as it is better protected, our skin has the power to repair itself more effectively!
Repair skin with a mask: Treat your skin to a powerful mask like Aquasource Everplump Night. This sleeping mask contains dark cultivated algae which revitalizes whilst you snooze. Our bodies and skin cells have the highest rate or regeneration while we’re asleep, so take advantage of you beauty sleep by benefitting from this rejuvenating and replenishing night mask to leave skin looking more youthful, radiant and healthier morning after morning!
Step 2: Let’s take a look at our lifestyles
Wear sunscreen daily: Whilst we may be good a slathering on protection at the beach, we often ignore the daily damage of UV rays. Even if you don’t spend your days working outside, or the fall season is making you complacent (UV rays can penetrate clouds too, you know), be sure to use a product which contains SPF. Even 15 minutes outside can be harmful to your skin. Aquasource SPF15 is formulated with sun protection whilst also being ultra-hydrating for your most hard-working moisturizer yet.
Limit technology time: Research conducted by the University of New Mexico suggests that the blue light emitted from technology such as phones and computer screens is damaging to the skin and may cause premature aging. Try and go technology-free at least an hour before break to give your skin (and mind) a break.
Step 3: You are what you eat, so let’s get improving that diet
Up your vitamin C: Studies have found that an increased vitamin C intake is associated with smoother, more youthful skin, so keep sipping on that orange juice!
Eat healthy fats: Omega 3, which is found in fish like salmon, mackerel and sardines, helps the skin to repair itself.
Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water is one of the easiest ways to combat aging - at least 2 liters of water per day is necessary to keep skin cells nourished from the inside.
By taking preventative measures you can reduce the impact that environment and lifestyle choices have on skin aging, and keep people guessing your age year after year!
