Age gains us wisdom. Smile lines map out our greatest joys while others remind us of more sorrowful and stressful times. Each line represents how far we have come and accomplished both physically and emotionally. As a woman, I can attest to the amount of stress I feel day in and day out. Running kids to practices and helping out with homework keeps things very busy at my house. I didn’t even mention making dinner and making sure we all have clean laundry!
Wrinkles can be worn like a badge of honor but its also important to take special care of our skin. You may be surprised to discover that there are actually great products out that not only care for our skin needs but also help us look younger! So, what is the best treatment for aging skin? Let’s talk about that!
The Importance of Nutrition
If you never changed the oil in your car that would affect its performance. Your vehicle wouldn’t last as long and it would break down more often. Just as you see the importance of taking care of your vehicle we also need to take special care of our skin. Your skin needs healthy nutrition found in the foods we eat like fruits and vegetables. Foods that are rich in antioxidants like blueberries and dark green leafy vegetables like spinach are perfect examples. Antioxidants help to fight off free radicals which are cells that can harm every part of our body including our skin.
Vitamins are important too when it comes to caring for our skin. Vitamin E helps nutrients in our body to not be destroyed by oxygen. Vitamin K helps blood to clot when we get a cut or bruise and aids our skins ability to heal itself. Your body cannot store vitamin C so we need to give our body consistent doses of this vitamin that helps hold our cells together. It could be said that vitamin A is the most important when it comes to our skin because it helps keep it healthy and smooth. Our skin isn’t the only beneficiary of these vitamins and minerals as your hair and nails will thrive too!
Diet is essential to healthy radiant skin but eating enough of the proper fruits and vegetables is very hard. Research shows that eating 10 servings of colorful fruits and vegetables a day is the optimal amount for antioxidant protection. That is a lot of food! This is where the advantage of proper supplementation comes in to fill in the gaps our diet doesn’t cover to give your body optimal health.
Exercise and Aging Skin
Not only is exercise crucial for our heart health and weight management but it is awesome for our skin! Did you know that your skin thrives when your blood is pumping? Exercise gets our heart pumping which then pushes blood all throughout our body. From your head to your feet blood surges through every vessel. That blood distributes nutrients and oxygen all over our body to our cells and skin.
Some activity is better than no activity. Lack of exercise causes waste materials to collect in your body. Yuck! That’s not what we want and that certainly doesn’t translate well for our skin.
Life gets busy but even if you take a 30-minute walk every day it will help your body and skin. Don’t be afraid to break a sweat either if you’re able to. The more active you are the more blood will be pumping.
Drink Up and Stay Hydrated
After all the exercise you may be doing water is important. Drinking enough water is crucial to a healthy body and skin. Your whole body utilizes water. It’s suggested that your body needs eight 8 ounce glasses of water every day. What has worked for me is getting a large water bottle and drinking it throughout the day. I usually get a bottle that can hold at least 26 ounces of water and refilling each time I drink it all. Having the bottle with me wherever I go keeps it in my view so I remember to take a drink.
Our skin contains over 60% water alone. That’s not including our muscles and other vital organs. Water helps deliver nutrients and even remove waste from our bodies. When skin is dry it’s more prone to wrinkles. Keeping your skin hydrated can even help your overall complexion.
Best treatment for Aging skin – Topical
Making changes to your day to day routine like getting proper nutrition, being more active and staying hydrated are all great ways to help not only your skin but your whole body. You will likely even feel better because these things can help your mood. In addition to these simple changes you can make to help your skin I have found success in topical products (and high-quality supplementation).
The first product that I would recommend as far as a topical treatment is called AgeLOC LumiSpa. The LumiSpa is the #1 cleaning device on the market. When I discovered this little device I was amazed at how it made my skin feel and look! I use it every day! The LumiSpa feels like a gentle massage for my face and has awesome cleansing power. I don’t have to worry about washing my face several times to remove make-up as it does the job the first time.
Let’s get to the benefits of the LumiSpa and how it can treat aging skin;
- The device helps bring up newer layers of skin that give a younger appearance.
- With its specialized design, it targets the texture of the skin and softens it.
- Increased Radiance- radiance is critical for light to reflect off and give a glow to the skin.
- The Lumispa utilizes a soft silicone head to carefully deep cleanse and its very easy to clean.
- Minimizes the appearance of pores ( this one is my favorite and though it is a big statement it fully delivers!).
- Increased appearance of skin volume and density. Younger skin is thicker.
The LumiSpa has a treatment head that catches the skin and barely tugs on it which stimulates the skin for better volume and density. As the device cleans it opens up the pores so the cleanser emulsifies debris and oils. So it loosens and absorbs as the pumping action removes impurities from the pores.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this product and have found that the price point matches the results I have received. There are even different cleansers that you can choose from that you can customize to your own skin preference. Did I mention that its water-proof too? It only takes a total of 2 minutes to complete this aging treatment and with daily use, you will see even more results.
Turning Back the Clock
Turning back the clock on age and health can be achieved through simple changes to your life and routine. If you want to be more active, energetic, and healthy while looking younger I know you can do it. There are steps and tools we can take to revert our minds to fill our bodies with good nutrition and care. I hope I have helped you see how you can take charge of your health and treat your aging skin.
