Premature Skin Aging

premature skin aging

Many people look young and do not have to worry about wrinkles, sometimes well into their forties. However, there are a large majority of people, women especially, who start to age before their time. This can show up in the form of wrinkles and age spots as well as loss of elasticity and collagen in the skin. Sometimes, a woman can experience this as early as her mid-20’s and if this is you, there is no reason that you should have to suffer through the premature aging of your skin. There are things you can do to combat this process.

First, and this is important, if you are seeing signs of aging and you are only in your early to mid-20’s and if you happen to smoke, STOP immediately. We mean it. If you smoke at any age and you are worried about wrinkles on your skin, you need to put your cigarette down and never pick it up again. If you are worried about the way you look right now, imaging what twenty years of puffing on a cancer stick will do to you, not only will you have wrinkles, but your skin will look and feel like shoe leather with yellow undertones. Sexy, huh? Be smart, quit smoking.

Next, start using a retinol based cream every day. Find a cream that has one percent retinol lotion in it and use it, this can easily erase wrinkles and take ten years off your face in very little time.

The next step in this process is to exfoliate. If you don’t do this already, you must begin. When you exfoliate once a week you rid your skin of build up that comes in the form of dirt, oil, or dead skin. This will help your appearance and rejuvenate your skin.

Next, start using an eye cream daily, in the morning and at night. The eyes are the first area of the face to show signs of aging and the skin around your eyes is very delicate and needs to be taken care of. Find a cream that not only moisturizes the skin around your eyes, but also incorporates sunscreen for protection.

Finally, eat foods that are rich in antioxidants or take vitamins that promote this. Antioxidants are found in fruits like blueberries, nuts and avocados or in drinks like green tea or pomegranate juice.
