Finding The Fountain of Youth

By Rose Kreller of Medi-Waste Disposal 

There are lots of wrinkle creams, eye serums and other anti-aging skin care products available to help reduce the signs of aging.  To create a truly effective anti-aging skin care plan, however, it helps to start with healthy skin care habits.

Healthy skin care habits can help:

    *prevent a blotchy complexion
    *retains skin’s youthful firmness longer
    *reduce fine lines and wrinkles
    *avoid leathery skin
    *reduce the risk of skin cancer

  •   Apply moisturizer every day.  As we age, the skin becomes drier.  Fine lines and wrinkle appear.  Moisturizer traps water in our skin giving it a more youthful appearance. 
  •  Cleanse daily.  Washing your face with a gentle cleanser improves appearance.  Avoid scrubbing the skin though.
  • Stop smoking.  Tobacco smoke contains toxins and continuous exposure to it results in a dull and dry complexion.  Skin also loses its firmness forming premature lines and wrinkles.
  • Eat healthy.  A healthy diet promotes healthy skin, this includes fruits, vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats.
  •  Get enough sleep.  It’s called ‘beauty rest’ for a reason.  Sleep gives your body time to refresh and renew itself. Protecting skin from the sun.  Sun protection is the foundation of every anti-aging skin care plan.  The sun’s rays make our skin age more quickly.  There is lots of evidence that sun prematurely ages our skin; we call this photoaging.  To avoid this, seek shade and avoid the sun between 10am and 4pm, cover up with hats, long sleeves and sunglasses, and be sure to wear sunscreen every day with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • Avoid indoor tanning with sun lamps or tanning beds.
