Preventing wrinkles requires a healthy and balanced diet, as well as good lifestyle habits. You can help your facial skin stay firm by regularly giving it natural and nourishing care. Here are Truc Mania’s tips to keep your skin supple, elastic and perfectly hydrated.
1- TAKE CARE OF YOUR DIET
Certain foods play an important role in keeping your skin healthy and prevent the appearance of wrinkles. Here are the foods you should eat to keep your skin velvety, not greasy, not dry and firm.
WHAT IS GOOD FOR DELAYING THE APPEARANCE OF WRINKLES
All antioxidant foods are recommended in the fight against the appearance of wrinkles:
Vegetables: spinach, eggplant, celery, asparagus, parsley, etc.
Dried vegetables: beans, broad beans, peas, chickpeas, lupins, etc.
Fruits: red berries, kiwis, apples, pears, cherries, plums, etc.
Hazelnuts, almonds and walnuts
AND WHAT TO AVOID
Be sure to eat the following foods in smaller amounts, as they contribute to the aging of your skin:
Cakes and pastries
2- GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
Sleep allows the body and the skin to regenerate. Bad sleep is as bad as stress, because the body secretes cortisol, which is the stress hormone. On the contrary, when sleep time is respected and is of good quality, the body will produce more hGH, a growth hormone that is beneficial for a better elasticity of the epidermis.
3- ENGAGE IN REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Physical activity is essential to slow down the aging of the skin. Indeed, by strengthening blood vessels, it stimulates microcirculation while eliminating toxins. Your skin is toned and your overall health is improved. Brisk walking can be a regular and beneficial physical activity to firm up your skin by oxygenating your muscles and skin.
4- AVOID ALCOHOL AND TOBACCO
Daily consumption of tobacco and alcohol will tend to blur your complexion and make it dull. In addition, it causes an excess of sebum making the skin oily, less supple. Tobacco and alcohol affect blood circulation and some vessels will burst or become blocked, which will promote the appearance of spots and wrinkles. Finally, it appears that smoking is bad for elastin and collagen, which are two essential components in maintaining the skin’s hold.
5- PREPARE A HOMEMADE MASK WITH ARGAN OIL
This mask is very simple to prepare and it requires few ingredients, because you only need an egg and argan oil, if possible organic. Take 100% pure oil, because it has important soothing properties. Mount an egg white in snow and add a tablespoon of argan oil. Mix, then, spread this preparation on your face by avoiding the contour of the eyes. Leave it on for ¼ of an hour before rinsing thoroughly with warm water.
6- USE AVOCADO TO ERASE WRINKLES
Avocado is rich in calcium, phosphorus and potassium. It also contains vitamins C, K and B. In short, it is an excellent antioxidant that will take care of your skin by nourishing it and protecting it from free radicals, the main factors of skin aging.
